Description

The HP 9000 rp7420 Server shares the same hardware as the HP 9000 rp7410 with changes to the cell board, CPU modules, core I/O, and the PCI-X backplane. The HP 9000 rp7420 Server provides increased performance over its predecessor.

The HP 9000 rp7420 16 Server is a symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) server supporting up to 8 high performance dual core PA 8900 (1.1 GHz or 1.0 GHz) or PA-8800 (1.0 GHz or 900 MHz) processor modules. A dual core processor module supports 2 processors resulting in a 16 way server. It also supports the sx1000 chip set. The rp7420 16 Server can be configured as a single SMP server or divided into two smaller, hardware partitioned (nPars), logical servers.
