RP5470 upgrade paths.

Greetings all,

I'm looking into the possible hardware upgrades on one of our rp5470. Right now we sit at 4 cpu's and 5Gb memory. Precisely, could we upgrade the # of CPU's ?

Sincerely,
Serge

Hi Serge,

The largest RP5470 is a 4 way 750 Mhz with 16 GB memory. Check the link below for the product numbers.

Re: RP5470 upgrade paths.

Hi Serge,

Nope - 4 CPUs is the max in the L-class aka rp54xx model series.
Next step up would be an N-class aka rp7400.
Or even the newer cell-based systems like the rp7405, rp7410 or even the newest rp7420.

Rgds,
Jeff

Re: RP5470 upgrade paths.

Hi Serge,

the max of rp5470 is 4 CPU 875 MHz and 16GB RAM. If you want more CPUs, you should to box swap to newer model rp4440.

Re: RP5470 upgrade paths.

Robert-Jans is correct for HP-UX 11.0, the max clock is 750MHz for CPUs. For HP-UX 11i, it is 875MHz. You can also upgrade the rp5470 to the rx5670 with up to four 1.5GHz Itanium 2 processors, and HP-UX 11i v2 (11.23).
