The third generation of cell-based HP servers is built around the HP sx2000 chipset.

The following servers use the HP sx2000 chipset:

  • PA-RISC servers — HP rp7440, HP rp8440, HP 9000 Superdome (SD16B, SD32B, SD64B models).

  • Itanium® 2-based servers — HP rx7640, HP rx8640, HP Integrity Superdome (SD16B, SD32B, SD64B models).

The HP sx2000 chipset provides a scalable server architecture with high-bandwidth processor, memory, and I/O busses. The HP sx2000 chipset includes new cell boards with core I/O, new system and I/O backplanes, new interconneting components, and the addition of a redundant clock source that is hot-swappable.

HP servers built around the HP sx2000 chipset include management processor (MP) support for access to the server using IPMI over LAN. For details see “Remote and Local Management of nPartitions”.
