HP Z600 Workstation - System board architecture

This section describes the workstation system architecture.
The following figure shows the typical workstation system board block diagram.
Figure :
note:
The x1, x4, x8, and x16 designators describe the number of electrical PCIe lanes routed to an expansion slot. For example, x16(8) means that the expansion slot is mechanically a x16 length connector, with eight PCIe lanes connected.

Processor technology

This workstation uses the Intel® 5520 chipset to support the latest Quad Core Intel® Xeon™ processor 5500 Series, including processors up to 95W. These processors incorporate an integrated 3-channel memory controller, microarchitecture improvements, and large L3 cache to provide superior performance. In addition, the workstation uses Intel QuickPath Interconnect (QPI) to connect the processors and I/O controller with speeds up to 6.4 GT/s.

Memory technology

Workstation dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) are based on DDR3 1333MHz technology, and are error checking and correcting (ECC)-protected. Six direct-attach memory channels—three per central processing unit (CPU)—enable low latency accesses and fast data transfer for improved performance. Configurations with one processor provide access to three DIMM slots with a total system memory size of 48GB using Registered DIMMs.
The addition of a second processor provides access to three more DIMM slots. Total system memory size can vary by the following configurations:
  • 24GB using 4GB Unbuffered or 4GB Registered DIMMs (Unbuffered and Registered DIMM cannot be intermixed)
  • 48GB using 8GB Registered DIMMs
note:
— HP Z Series Workstations support only ECC DIMM Memory.
— Do not intermix Unbuffered DIMM Memory with Registered DIMM Memory. The system will not boot and will produce a memory error.
— For maximum performance, install the same number of DIMMs per CPU. Install them in pairs of the same size if your workstation has two CPUs.

Graphics

This workstation supports PCIe Gen2 (PCIe2) bus speeds and can support dual PCIe Gen2 graphics cards in PCIe2 x16 slots. It supports graphics cards up to 150W in the primary graphics slot. A second graphics card may be supported in the second PCIe2 x16 slot, subject to overall system power limitations. The workstation has multi-head capability, supporting up to eight 2D displays or four 3D displays.

Expansion card slots

This workstation implements one Intel 5520 chip to provide a total of six high-performance graphics and I/O slots. One of the PCIe x8 (4) slots on the workstation has been upgraded to PCIe Gen2.

Addition features

Redundant array of independent disks (RAID) configurations for SATA support modes 0, 1, 5 and 10. eSATA (3.0 Gbps) is supported using an optional adapter. This workstation provides nine external and three internal USB 2.0 ports. The 650W power supply is 85% efficient and enables Energy Star Version 5.0 system configurations. HP WattSaver technology enables support of the European Union EuP power limit of 1W in off mode. HP Quiet Fan Technology enables quiet system operation.
