> the NEC processors from the powerpc-notebook project *might* be POWER9.

I looked into this - these are actually NXP processors. NXP T2080 to be precise.
The data sheet is a little unhelpful - not making it clear what POWER it is.

Anyways - the processor itself has some similarities to our goals. It might be a good idea to browse through its specs and see if we can match its pinouts down the road. Hopefully, by that time, powerpc-notebook is ready to go, and our processor could be just plug and play…

And I wanted to attach an image from the data sheet, but… too large at 88KB :(
