Intel server S4600LH with 1TB of RAM and quad CPUs specifications leaks


A horse-power server from Intel appeared with up to 1TB of RAM and quad physical Xeon E5-4600 series processor, reported VR-Zone.

The motherboard use Socket 2011 and supporting three DIMMs per channel, or 12 in total, it would result for 48 DIMMs DDR3 up to 1600Mhz on OC, altogether on a quad processor board, the the 'Lizard Head Pass' S4600LH if a good liquid cooling system in-there, it could actually fit into 1U platform! Else, it's 2U.

Specifications heads are eight cores for each CPU resulting to 32 cores and four Intel C600 patsburg chipsets.
In addition to that, there are 160 PCIe v3 lanes in total on such platform, with this such power you can reach an imaginary processing power.




Two QPI links on Socket 2011 CPUs do enable connecting each processor to TWO other ones, if you accept lesser inter-processor bandwidth compared to just dual-link pairing of two CPUs alone. There will be a separate Xeon E5-4600 series covering that particular market segment, which sits between the high end dual-socket E5-2600 and the enterprise RAS-enhanced even higher end E7 series (those fancy 10-core 30 MB L3 cache Westmere-EX chips and their followons).
These are good for uber-rendering workstations with many threads, as well as SMP server jobs where high per-core performance is more important than RAS capability or huge interprocessor bandwidth - E7 series have, after all, four QPI links on each CPU for that purpose.
