rx8640 memory question

We have a memory question regarding an RX8640.

It looks like 512GB is the maximum memory capacity on the rx8640 according to the HP website where I'm looking at Integrity Midrange Section.

I'm assuming this means 512GB with all 4 cells popoulated with all dimm slots filled with the maximum sized dimms? If so am I safe to believe that the max memory per each cell is 128GB?

Any help on this with clarification would really be appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: rx8640 memory question

You are correct.

The rx8640 can have up to 4 cells, each cell will have a max of 16 DDR2 DIMM slots. Memory is installed in pairs, the largest DIMM is 8GB... 128GB per cell max. Fill up all 4 cells with the max memory config and you're limited to 512GB.

Look over the quick specs for more detail

hi KPS,
For RX8640 have SEU ( Server Expension Unit ) with max total cellboard is 8.

1 cellboard have 16 slot memory, and the max size memory for one slot is 4 GB

8*16*4=512 GB.

Hi KPS,

Sorry i am wrong about SEU, Total max cellboard is 4. SEU contain I/O only.

max memory for one slot is 8 GB. I think Denver right about that.

Sorry for my fault.

Re: rx8640 memory question

freedy, SEU is for I/O, you won't get an additional 4 cell boards by adding the server expansion unit... it buys you 16 pci-x slots... no more memory or cpu. just i/o expansion.

max dimm is 8GB, installed in pairs. total 512GB supported.
