Description
xSeries 335 related options

The xSeries 335 server features an Intel Xeon processor system that supports internal processing speeds of up to 3.2 GHz, processing operations to memory, and PCI bus at 133 MHz. It contains an integrated, full-speed 512 KB ECC L2 cache and 1 MB L3 cache. This system supports SMP applications through installation in the second processor slot of xSeries 335 models with like processors.

High-performance server subsystems: These servers are high-throughput, two-way SMP-capable network servers with excellent scalability when you add memory and a second processor. They incorporate powerful 3.2 GHz Intel Xeon processors with 512 KB advanced transfer L2 cache and 1 MB L3 cache. These flip-chip, pin grid array 2 (FC-PGA2) processors feature advanced transfer L2 caches integrated onto the processor core and run at the same clock speed as the processor core. The advanced transfer cache is a result of a "backside bus" that is 256-bits wide. It features a quad-wide cache line that can transfer four 64-bit cache line segments at one time to deliver full-speed capability. The cache is eight-way set associative.

Two Intel Xeon connectors are standard on the system board to support installation of a second processor. High-speed 266 MHz DDR SDRAM is optimized for 133 MHz processor-to-memory subsystem performance. The xSeries 335 server uses the ServerWorks Grand Champion LE (GCLE) chipset to maximize throughput from processors to memory, and to primary 32-bit and secondary 64-bit PCI buses. The two expansion slots are supported through the secondary 64-bit bus.
