Re: cpu type problem

yes i have an alpha ES45 system which is running Tru64unix ver 5.1B.
but according to HP this system can cotain one of two processor types: either
- alpha EV6.8(21264C)which has the following specification:1000 MHz,8 MB cache

or

- alpha EV6.8(21264D) which has the following specifications:1250MHZ,16MB.

Re: cpu type problem

i have an alphaserver es45 with 4 cpus and the model is EV6.8CB (21264C) 1250Mhz, but on the site www.compaq.com/alphaserver/es45/ in the specifications site the model is 21264D...I have a specification guide and the model 21264D is of EV6.8CX model of cpu and not of EV6.8CB!

I believe that the mystery is resolved!

Bye,Francesco
