Quick question (or at least I hope so):
I have received a business proposal for the purchase of a few Dell PowerEdge R710 and R410 servers. In this proposal, some of the servers have Intel Xeon E5506 CPUs along with 1333MHz Dual Rank RDIMMs.
I have accessed Intel's data sheet for the E5506 CPU and have seen the memory specifications, which are as follows:
Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type) 144 GB
Memory Types DDR3-800
# of Memory Channels 3
Max Memory Bandwidth 19.2 GB/s
Physical Address Extensions 40-bit
ECC Memory Supported Yes
My question is: does this, in fact, mean that, with this CPU, I won't be able to take advantage of the whole RAM speed?
If so, is there any alternative, so I can in fact use my whole RAM speed (overclocking settings, etc.)?
