NOTE: 1: Intel processor numbers are not a measurement of higher performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. Click here to learn about intel processor numbers Non-HP site . Intel 64 Architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel 64 Architecture. Processor will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 Architecture-enabled BIOS.

2: Hardware RAID is not supported on Linux systems. The Linux kernel, with built-in software RAID, provides excellent functionality and performance. It is a good alternative to hardware-based RAID. Click here for RAID capabilities with Linux .
