Xeon 5500 series and ECC memory

Hi,

Could you tell me if the Xeon E5500 series processors include unbuffered ECC memory support -- specifically the E5504 part?

Thanks,

Simon

Simon, Yes. The Xeon 5500 series processors supports both registered (RDIMM) and unbuffered (UDIMM) DDR3 memory at speeds 800, 1066 and 1333

The E5504 will only support the 800MHz memory speed.

Hi there,

I found this information for you.

Intel 5500/5520 chipset series supports 3 DDR3 DIMM tyoes: 

Unbuffered

 

Unbuffered ECC

 

Registered DIMM.

Only unbuffered ECC and Registered DiMMs are appropriate for servers and wrkstations due to error correcting capabilities.

Kind Regards,

 

Aryan.

Great, thanks a lot Chris!

Just to clear up a further thing I was unsure about, am I right in saying that the standard non-Xeon "Core i7 920" processor does NOT support ECC ?

Regards,

Simon
