Overview

The HP 9000 servers rp4410 and rp4440 were, like their smaller rp3410 and rp3440 siblings, part of the last PA-RISC-based HP servers. They are driven by up to two or four dual-core PA-8800 or PA-8900 processors, based around the Itanium 2/IA64-capable HP zx1 chipset, technically very similar to the rp3400s. The systems can be rack-mounted in 4U or be used stand-alone.

The rp4410 was also called rp4410-4, the rp4440 also rp4440-8.

Chipset

The systems are based on the HP zx1 chipset with three main components — the MIO memory and I/O controller, the IOAs I/O adapters and the SMEs scalable memory expanders.

Buses

An interesting aspect of the rp4400’s bus setup is that the same 6.4 GB/s processor bus is shared between up to two CPUs on the rp4410 and up to four CPUs on the rp4440.
