Hey guys I need some help identifying this CPU.
i recently acquired a dell Poweredge 1800 with a single xeon proc. the proc is labeled as a SL7ZF 3.0GHZ 2MB L2 cache 800FSB. I wanted to add a second proc but am a little confused on this proc
Intels site states that the SL7ZF is a single core single thread proc but Windows 2003 server sees it as a dual core and so does Sisoftware's sandra application. how is this possible? a quick look on Wiki also confirmed what was on intels site about this proc not supporting HT.
really need to identify this proc 100% as the added proc will need to be identical.
Is it possible that sandra and server 2003 are incorrect in reporting this proc as a dual core?
ARK is frequently wrong on the specs of older CPUs with regards to HyperThreading. The 3.00E supposedly does not support HyperThreading, but your OS wouldn't see a non-HT single-core CPU as having two threads if HT wasn't active, and your CPU is clearly NOT a dual-core unit. My guess is that HT is in fact active and working. Go get yourself a second 3.00 Irwindale to fill the other socket.
