Overview

The rx5670 is a 7U rack-mountable SMP Itanium 2 server with up to four processors. Closely matching the rx4640 system architecture, the rx5670 is based on HP’s zx1 Itanium chipset. PA-RISC L-Class servers (built into the same system/chassis) could be upgraded by a board-swap — changing the main system board, processors and support hardware — to Itanium 2 rx5670s (applies to HP rp5400/rp5450 (L1000/L2000) and HP rp5430/rp5470 (L1500/L3000)).

All caches are on-die (L1, L2 and L3).

Chipset

The rx5670 is based on HP’s zx1 chipset, which consists of three main components — the MIO (memory and I/O controller), the IOAs (I/O adapters) and the SMEs (scalable memory expanders):

The rest are standard third-party I/O chips, implemented on Core I/O cards in two or three PCI slots
