Release 8 & Hardware Scheduling


I was just watching the April Webinar re: Release 8.0, and the presenter kept saying “No SMs have to be touched!”

I (think I) understand that the SM must be a P9 in order to support hardware scheduling, and that software release 8 only supports P9/Hardware Scheduling…

Am I confused?

Is there a fancy trade-in program for < P9 SMs like there is for APs?

Thx in advance

All sm’s support hardware scheduling. P7, P8, and P9. P7, and P8’s must have hardware scheduling enabled with the CNUT Advantage hardware scheduling tool.

Thanks for the reply! That makes life a lot easier…
