Overview

The HP 9000 servers rp3410 and rp3440 servers were some of the last PA-RISC-based HP servers, in a 2U rack-mountable case. They use dual-core PA-8800 or PA-8900 processors in a HP zx1 system design that was also used for Itanium 2 systems. There is an upgrade path to Intel/HP IA64 Itanium 2 processors. The HP 9000 rp4410 and rp4440 servers are technically similar with more computing and I/O possibilities.

The rp3410 was also called rp3410-2, the rp3440 also rp3440-4.

Internals

CPU

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 zx1 is almost a crossbar chipset: the zx1 memory controller acts as the crossbar switch which links processors, memory and I/O together.
