DL380p G8 cpu support


DL380p G8 cpu support

I need to know what processors this server will support at BIOS level P70, which is the latest one on the support page.

If the E5 v3 family is supported, I need to know that, too.

TIA for replies

P70 is the ROM family, that never changes. 2015.07.01 (A) (11 Nov 2015) is the latest released version.  Check the quickspec for a listing of supported processors

Re: DL380p G8 cpu support

The DL380 Gen8 running the latest firmware should be able to support up to the E5-2600 v2 processors.  The v3 and v4 CPUs use a slightly different socket spec so they will not work.  You need the G9 for those.

For specific CPU support, check the quickspecs to make sure it's a supported option and whether you might need additional fans or different PSUs (such as when adding a 2nd CPU).

You probably need a bit more firmware:


Advisory: (Revision) HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers - Instructions for Upgrading an HP ProLiant Gen8 Server From an Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600, E5-2400, or E5-4600 to an Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v2, E5-2400 v2, or E5-4600 v2


Hope this helps!
