Ask a Lenovo representative for specifics. Processor quantity and model, cores, core speed, L3 cache, memory speed, TDP. Actual memory speed maximums depend on several factors, as described in “Memory options”.
Processor quantity and model, number of cores, core speed, L3 cache, memory speed, TDP. The x M4 supports the processor options listed in the following table. The server supports up to two processors. This table shows x550 server models have each processor standard.
If there is no corresponding where used model for a particular processor, then this processor is only available through CTO. The part numbers include two system fans. System x DDR3 memory is compatibility tested and tuned for optimal System x performance and throughput.
Each processor has four memory channels, and there are three DIMMs per channel. The following table shows the characteristics of the supported DIMMs. In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory.
The size of a rank varies depending on the DIMMs installed. All standard models, except C5x, ship with four 2. The following table shows the internal storage expansion options available for the x M4 server. An optical drive can be installed internally when this option is used.
The following table lists the RAID controllers and the additional options used for the internal disk storage of the x M4 server. The controllers are installed into a dedicated PCIe slot. The server does not support internal tape drive options or other internal backup units.
