Overview

The rx2600 is the rack-designated sibling of the zx6000 workstation. They feature a very similar system design and casing and can be both mounted in 2U of a 19″ rack. Also based on one or two Itanium 2 processors the rx2600 architecture differs from the zx6000 in that it is targeted for PCI-X I/O devices and thus does not feature the AGP port of the workstation-oriented zx6000.

The rx2600 was later marketed as rx2600-2.

Chipset

The systems are based on HP’s zx1 chipset, which consists of two main components — the MIO (memory and I/O controller) and the IOAs (I/O adapters):

The rest are standard third-party I/O chips:
