What I am worried about is power per blade/node.  The Cray EX design used
in Frontier has a limit per blade. Frontier and El Cap have two nodes per
blade. Aurora, which uses more power, only has one node per blade. I
imagine that ORv3 racks will have similar issues.

We can remove 6KW per blade today and I am confident that we can remove
some more. That said, we could reach a point where a blade might just be a
single processor.
