4MB per die or installation? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I'm planning on building a home server utilizing 2 Xeon processors. Is the 4MB limit on memory on the installation of is it per die? 2MB per die will probably be sufficient but I will be running processor/memory intensive applications and would like to know if I can go to 4MB per die. Memory is cheap.

    TIA

  • Thanks for correction. Is that 4GB total for the installation or 4GB per die?

  • That's what I thought but it doesn't hurt to ask. Since I originally asked the question I decided to skip a dual processor system (too $$$ and too noisy) and start more modestly.

  • Honestly, a cheap dual core (not processor) system will be more than sufficient.

     

    Best of luck, and get back to us if you have any questions or problems.
