Magna systems' platforms

Penguin Computing made the Magna 1015, a Barreleye G1 system, but I can't figure out what platform the other Magna systems like the 2001, 2002, 2002S are.

Monza vs LaGrange on AC922

I was under the impression that IBM used LaGrange for AC922 too. The pictures associated with the launch of AC922 (like this image) seems to indicate that they are using a module that's identical to what's been used for Zaius/Barreleye 2, seen on this page where they explicitly say they are using LaGrange (corroborated by lot of info on GitHub regarding Zaius). The modules in the IBM and Rackspace pictures have identical pinouts. Monza and LaGrange would probably not have identical arrangements of pins since the point of them are that they have different I/O. If I'm wrong, I'd be happy to read an explanation from someone who knows more. -- Henriok (talk) 17:13, 27 December 2017 (CST)

According to the XML files for Witherspoon the module is Monza: . Any chance the AC922 is not based on Witherspoon? SiteAdmin (talk) 17:22, 27 December 2017 (CST)
Hmm.. that's a really good point. I'm more than willing to trust this source :) It's more plausible that IBM is not being correct in their promo pictures. "Just take any POWER9 module.. never mind the nitpickers on the Internet" :) Thanks! -- Henriok (talk) 06:20, 28 December 2017 (CST)
