Author Quick ZX6000 max memory question

I have a ZX6000 workstation with 16 memory slots. In the documentation it says that a maximum of 24GB of RAM can be installed in 12 slots. Does the fact that my machine has 16 slots mean that the maximum RAM that can be installed is 32GB.

Would I see much benefit in installing the additional 16GB (I guess I'm really asking 'how much memory would I need in an Alpha to be equivalent to 32GB in an Itanium box). I seem to recall that the IA64 is fairly memory hungry.

Thanks for the help, Mark

16Gb won't hurt, obviously. The real test is by watching your workload. If your page file is hardly touched (free size == file size), then more memory isn't going to help much, and you can just stay at 24G. Unless you want some bragging rights, of course!

Thanks for the help.

I was just a bit surprised when I opened up the ZX6000 to find 16 memory slots when all the documentation says it has only 12. They must have upgraded the motherboard at some point.

There was also talk of 4MB DIMMs which with 16 slots would mean a theoretical maximum of 64GB, although to buy this from a reseller would cost the preverbial 'arm and a leg'.

In a zx6000/rx2600 there are ‘only’ 12, so that'd be a theoretical maximum of 48 GB (same as the rx2620, I believe).

Anyway, can anyone confirm support for 4 GB DIMMs? Because this is the first time I've seen someone make mention of it. So far I've read that the maximum DIMM size is 2 GB. (By the way, my rx2600 has 12× 2 = 24 GB.)

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
