Re: [edk2-non-osi] [PATCH V2 0/1] Add ME Firmware Binaries for Cascade Lake

Hi,

This is great news.

What I don't understand yet is how this relates to the removal of the Purley platform and the comments made when the bug report requesting Cascade Lake support was closed.

Does this mean a replacement for the Purley Refresh platform that supports the MinPlatform architecture can be expected shortly?

Best Regards,
Wim Vervoorn

Subject: [edk2-devel] [edk2-non-osi] [PATCH V2 0/1] Add ME Firmware Binaries for Cascade Lake

This patch series adds ignition ME firmware binaries for the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and chipsets formerly known as Cascade Lake to the edk2-non-osi repository.

Ignition Firmware is a variant of ME firmware that is intended to provide lightweight chipset initialization. It does not contain all the features of the Intel® Server Platform Services (SPS) ME firmware. Ignition Firmware is consequently much smaller than Intel® SPS Firmware (~0.5 MB vs. ~3 MB).

This patch series represents a milestone for Intel as it is the first time Intel has provided a ME firmware binary under a redistributable license to the public. The license is identical to the license for Microcode and FSP.
