Xeon Platinum 8180 support memory type 2400 or only 2666?

Let's get this right. The maximum memory bus speed listed for a processor is the maximum speed that was validated by intel and is thus warranted by Intel. Now, two important points:

 

  1. Operation at standard speeds below this maximum is also warranted. For example, if the maximum speed listed is DDR4-2666, then operation at DDR4-2133 and DDR4-2400 is also warranted.
  2. Operation at memory bus speeds above the maximum is also possible (and, in fact, is regularly done) but, because Intel does not validate operation at these speeds, intel does not warrant operation at these speeds.

 

Hope this helps,

This CPU supports DDR4-2666 https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/120496/intel-xeon-platinum-8180-processor-38-5m..., however, you should see your motherboard specifications to find the supported memory. In the board spec, you will find other supported frequencies https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/120496/intel-xeon-platinum-8180-processor-38-5m...

thanks leon :)

 

If the motherboard support also other memory type it will not work because of the limit of DDR4-2666 from CPU, so i need DDR4-2666 to work.
