NOTE: Although the Intel Xeon E5-2600 processor family supports dual processors, the HP Z420
Workstation does not support dual processor configurations.
Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance. Processor numbers differentiate features
within each processor family, not across different processor families. See:
http://www.intel.com/products/processor_number/ for details.
64-bit computing on Intel® 64 architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS,
operating system, device drivers and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processor will not
operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary
depending on your hardware and software configurations. See: http://www.intel.com/info/em64t for more
information.
Quad-Core, Six-Core, and Eight-Core technologies are designed to improve performance of multithreaded
software products and hardware-aware multitasking operating systems and may require appropriate
operating system software for full benefits. Check with software provider to determine suitability. Not all
customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of these technologies.

SATA hardware RAID is supported on Linux systems that have support for the Intel RSTe technology. The
Linux kernel, with built-in software RAID, provides excellent functionality and performance. It is a good
alternative to hardware-based RAID. Please visit http://www.hp.com/support/linux_hardware_matrix for
RAID capabilities with Linux.
All drives must be identical in type and capacity.
RAID arrays greater than 2 TB are fully supported.

Each processor supports up to 4 channels of DDR3 memory. To realize full performance at least 1 DIMM
must be inserted into each channel.
The CPUs determine the speed at which the memory is clocked. If a 1066MHz capable CPU is used in the
system, the maximum speed the memory will run at is 1066MHz regardless of the specified speed of the

Key features and benefits
HP Vision Diagnostics simplifies the process of effectively identifying, diagnosing, and isolating the
hardware issues. In addition to robust management tools, service tools can be invaluable in quickly
resolving system problems. To streamline the service process and resolve problems quickly, it is
necessary to have the right information available at the time that a service call is placed. The primary
information requirement, which is also the one that provides the greatest Vision into potential system
issues, is the configuration of the system. Vision Diagnostics helps provide higher system availability.
Typical uses of the Vision Diagnostics are:
Testing and diagnosing apparent hardware failures
Documenting system configurations for upgrade planning, standardization, inventory tracking,
disaster recovery, and maintenance
Sending configuration information to another location for more in-depth analysis
Access Panel Key Lock

Introduction
The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-1600/E5-2600/E5-4600 product families are the next generation of 64-bit, multi-core enterprise
processors built on 32-nanometer process technology. Throughout this document, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-1600/E52600/E5-4600 product families may be referred to as simply the processor. Where information differs between the EP and EP 4S
SKUs, this document uses specific Intel® Xeon® processor E5-1600 product family, Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family,
and Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 product family notation. Based on the low-power/high performance 2nd Generation Intel® Core™
Processor Family microarchitecture, the processor is designed for a two chip platform consisting of a processor and a Platform
Controller Hub (PCH) enabling higher performance, easier validation, and improved x-y footprint. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-1600
product family and the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family are designed for Efficient Performance server, workstation and
HPC platforms. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 product family processor supports scalable server and HPC platforms of two or
more processors, including "glueless" 4-way platforms.
NOTE: some processor features are not available on all platforms.
These processors feature per socket, two Intel® QuickPath Interconnect point-to-point links capable of up to 8.0 GT/s, up to 40 lanes
of PCI Express* 3.0 links capable of 8.0 GT/s, and 4 lanes of DMI2/PCI Express* 2.0 interface with a peak transfer rate of 5.0 GT/s. The
processor supports up to 46 bits of physical address space and 48-bit of virtual address space.
Included in this family of processors is an integrated memory controller (IMC) and integrated I/O (IIO) (such as PCI Express* and DMI2)
on a single silicon die. This single die solution is known as a monolithic processor.
Performance and Features
Up to 8 execution cores
Each core supports two threads (Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology), up to 16
threads per socket
46-bit physical addressing and 48-bit virtual addressing
