I'm quite sure a faster CPU will speed up the system ;-)

1.6GHz dual core is likely a montecito, you can install them into a rx4640 (firmware upgrade and OS patches may be needed).

Re: Addition cpu for rx 4640 server

So you have an rx4640 with mx2 processors in it right?

While the _current_ crop of 1.6 GHz CPUs are dual-core "Montecito" (aka Itanium2 9XXX) there were "Madison" single core CPUs running at 1.6 GHz as well. To make matters even better I think we have 1.6 GHz single-core Montecitos too :)

WRT pricing, the thing to do is contact an HP Reseller or Sales Rep.
