Upgrading rp5450 to 5470, quick question;

Are both versions of the rp5450 (A & B) able to be upgraded to the max config of an rp5470?
Thanks!

A6147B with option 002 will upgrade either the A5191A or A5191B to the rp5470. Note that you will also need to order the new higher clock rate CPUs you want (e.g. A6152A for 875MHz), along with the CPU support module(s), A6799A (one for each two CPUs). Also, the rp5470 needs a minimum of two power supplies and a third if you want N+1 redunancy. Power supplies, A5527A, are also extra. Then comes the question of whether you want extra memory, which is often needed to gain the maximum out of the faster (or greater number of processors). The rp5470 supports two memory carriers, A6155A, and you need to order one, but two will double the memory bandwidth. It is best to spread memory evenly across two memory carriers.

The Upgrade involves a backplane swap, so the original system does not matter.
What are the chances...
