HP RX2600 Server (A6870A, A6870B, A6873B, AB323A, AB324A)

RX2600 Server

The HP Integrity RX2600 server has a sleek 2U footprint and can be equipped with up to two 1.5 GHz Intel Itanium 2 processors loaded with 6 MB of on-chip L3 cache and as much as 24 GB of RAM. This means that it has extraordinary compute density. Fitting 20 servers into a 2-meter rack delivers an astounding 240 gigaFLOPS of potential power. This server also has extensive availability and management features, which make it ideal for deployments in mission-critical data centers or compute-intensive server farms. Features such as hot-swap redundant components, memory chip spare, an integrated management processor, and high-availability clustering support make this server the clear leader among 2-way Itanium 2-based servers.

Look to On Queue Computer for support with your HP RX2600 Server with over 26 years in business supporting legacy workstations.

Processor Support

  • Up to 2 Processors
  • 1.0 GHz, 1.4 GHz, 1.3 GHz or 1.5 GHz frequencies
  • Level 3 Cache: 1.5 MB (1.0 GHz and 1.4 GHz), 3 MB (1.3 GHz) or 6 MB (1.5 GHz)
  • Level 2 Cache: 256 KB
  • Level 1 Cache: 32 KB
  • Single bit cache error correction
  • 50 bit physical addressing
  • 64 bit virtual addressing
  • 4 GB maximum page size


  • Twelve DIMM slots, allowing a maximum of 24 GB of total system memory.
  • Memory must be installed in groups of four DIMMs, also known as quads
  • Each quad must consist of equal density DIMMs
  • Memory can be ordered in quads of 1 GB (4x256 MB), 2 GB (4x512 MB), 4 GB (4x1 GB), or 8 GB (4x2 GB)
  • Minimum memory is 1 GB (4x256 MB)
  • Maximum memory is 24 GB (12x2 GB)
  • Memory must be loaded in the specific order outlined on the system board.
  • Each quad of memory is loaded across both memory buses (two DIMMs on each bus) to ensure maximum bandwidth and performance
