Product Details

The Sun Fire X4600 M2 server takes full advantage of the exceptional power and performance of the AMD Opteron processor. The server has a four-rack-unit chassis with up to eight CPU modules.

Each CPU module is a single-board unit that provides local power conversion (VRM), a CPU socket, and a number of DIMM slots. For the Sun Fire X4600 M2 server, CPU modules are available with 4 and 8 DIMM slots. The 8-DIMM split-plane CPU module supports AMD quad-core CPUs with Dual Dynamic Power Management.
