          Compatibility Notes The x3550 M4 offers numerous features to boost performance, improve scalability, and reduce costs:

          The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family improves productivity by offering superior system performance with 8-core processors and up to 2.9GHz core speeds, up to 20MB of L3 cache, and up to two 8GT/s QPI interconnect links.

          Up to two processors, 16 cores, and 32 threads maximize the concurrent execution of multithreaded applications.

          Intelligent and adaptive system performance with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 allows CPU cores to run at maximum speeds during peak workloads by temporarily going beyond processor TDP.

          Intel Hyper-Threading Technology boosts performance for multithreaded applications by enabling simultaneous multithreading within each processor core, up to two threads per core.

          Intel Virtualization Technology integrates hardware-level virtualization hooks that allow operating system vendors to better utilize the hardware for virtualization workloads.

          Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVT) significantly improve floating point performance for compute-intensive technical and scientific applications compared to Intel Xeon 5600 series processors.

          The 24 Load Reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) of 1333MHz DDR3 ECC memory provide speed, high availability, and a memory capacity of up to 768 GB (running at 1066 MHz).

          The theoretical maximum memory bandwidth of the Intel Xeon processor E5 family is 51.6GB/s, which is 60% more than in the previous generation of Intel Xeon processors.

          The use of solid-state drives (SSDs) instead of or along with traditional spinning drives (HDDs) can significantly improve I/O performance. An SSD can support up to 100 times more I/O operations per second (IOPS) than a typical HDD.

          The server has four integrated Gigabit Ethernet ports and two optional 10 Gb Ethernet ports with mezzanine cards that do not consume a PICe slot.

          The server offers PCI Express 3.0 I/O expansion capabilities that improve the theoretical maximum bandwidth by 60% (8 GT/s per link) compared to the previous generation of PCI Express 2.0.

          With Intel Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel Xeon processor E5 family. This helps to dramatically reduce I/O latency and increase overall system performance.

          RAM Technology DDR3 SDRAM
          Memory Notes 8GB PC3L-10600 CL9 ECC 1333 MHz LP RDIMM (1x8GB).
          There are 24 DIMM slots, 12 per processor. Maximum memory:
          With LRDIMMs: Up to 768GB with 24x32GB LRDIMMs and two processors
          With RDIMMs: Up to 384GB with 24x16GB RDIMMs and two processors
          With UDIMMs: Up to 32GB with 16x2GB UDIMMs and two processors

          Memory notes:
          The server supports UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs.
          Mixing different types of memory (UDIMMs, RDIMMs, and LRDIMMs) is not supported.
          Mixing 1.5V and 1.35V DIMMs in the same server is supported. In such a case all DIMMs operate at 1.5V.
          The maximum number of ranks per channel is eight (with the exception of Load Reduced DIMMs, where more than eight ranks are supported because one quad-rank LRDIMM provides the same electrical load on a memory bus as a single-rank RDIMM).
          The maximum quantity of DIMMs that can be installed in a server depends on the number of CPUs, DIMM type, rank, and operating voltage.
          All DIMMs in the server operate at the same speed, which is determined as the lowest value of:
          - Memory speed supported by specific CPU
          - Lowest maximum operating speed for the selected memory configuration that depends on rated speed, operating voltage, and quantity of DIMMs per channel.
