Xserve G4/1.0

Apple Xserve G4/1.0
The Apple Xserve G4/1.0 features a 1.0 GHz PowerPC 7455 (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit, 256k "on chip" level 2 cache and 2 MB "backside" level 3 cache, 256 MB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM, a 60 GB (7200 RPM) Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, a 24X CD-ROM drive, an ATI PCI graphics card with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (an ATI Radeon 8500 AGP 4X graphics card with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM was available as an optional configuration), and dual 10/100/1000Base-T (Gigabit) Ethernet.

The Xserve is designed for network intensive use and occupies 1U of an industry-standard 19" rack, the first Apple product ever designed to be rack-mounted. The Xserve also was the first Apple product to use DDR SDRAM, Ultra ATA/100 drives (four hot swappable "Apple Drive Modules" -- each running on its own Ultra ATA/100 bus), and dual Gigabit Ethernet. The Xserve has two full length 66 MHz, 64-bit PCI slots and one half-length 66 MHz, 32-bit combination PCI/4X AGP slot. In the default configuration, the lower 64-bit PCI slot is occupied by the video card and the 32-bit combination PCI/AGP slot is occupied by a Gigabit Ethernet card.

The Xserve shipped with an unlimited user version of MacOS X Server 10.1.5 and custom server monitoring software pre-installed. Custom configurations also were available.

[102] Apple Xserve (Early 2003,Slot Load)

Xserve G4/1.33 (Early 2003,Slot Load)

Apple Xserve G4/1.33 (Slot Load)
The Apple Xserve G4/1.33 (Slot Load) features a 1.33 GHz PowerPC 7455 (G4) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit, 256k "on chip" level 2 cache and 2 MB "backside" level 3 cache, 256 MB of PC2700 DDR SDRAM, a 60 GB (7200 RPM) Ultra ATA/133 hard drive, a slot-loading 24X CD-ROM drive (or optional DVD/CD-RW "Combo" drive), an ATI PCI graphics card with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (an unspecified AGP 4X graphics card with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM was available as an optional configuration), and dual 10/100/1000Base-T (Gigabit) Ethernet all in a 1U case that fits in an industry-standard 19" rack.

The Xserve G4/1.33 is architecturally similar to the earlier Xserve G4/1.0, but in addition to having a faster processor, it has a faster system bus, faster RAM, faster drive buses (four hot swappable "Apple Drive Modules" -- each running on its own Ultra ATA/133 bus), and Firewire "800" support.

Like the original Xserve, this model has two full length 66 MHz, 64-bit PCI slots and one half-length 66 MHz, 32-bit combination PCI/4X AGP slot. In the default configuration, the lower 64-bit PCI slot is occupied by the video card and the 32-bit combination PCI/AGP slot is occupied by a Gigabit Ethernet card.

The Xserve G4/1.33 shipped with an unlimited user version of MacOS X Server 10.2.4 and custom server monitoring software pre-installed. Custom configurations also were available.

Xserve G4/1.33 DP Cluster Node (Early 2003,Slot Load)

Apple Xserve G4/1.33 DP Cluster Node
The Apple Xserve G4/1.33 DP Cluster Node features dual 1.33 GHz PowerPC 7455 (G4) processors each with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit, 256k "on chip" level 2 cache and 2 MB "backside" level 3 cache. It shipped standard with 256 MB of PC2700 DDR SDRAM, a 60 GB (7200 RPM) Ultra ATA/133 hard drive, and a single10/100/1000Base-T (Gigabit) Ethernet in a 1U case that fits in an industry-standard 19" rack.

Designed to be "clustered" in quantity with a standard Xserve as a "head node", the Xserve G4/1.33 DP Cluster Node allows multiple systems to be used together for intensive computing tasks, but has a single drive bay (instead of four), a single Gigabit Ethernet port (instead of two), and no optical drive or video card to cut costs (Apple sold it for US$2799, the same price as the single processor Xserve G4/1.33). Like the "head node" Xserve G4, this model has two full length 66 MHz, 64-bit PCI slots, but lacks the one half-length 66 MHz, 32-bit combination PCI/4X AGP slot.

The Xserve G4/1.33 DP Cluster Node shipped with a ten user version of MacOS X Server 10.2.4 -- instead of an unlimited user version -- and custom server monitoring software pre-installed. Custom configurations also were available.

Apple Xserve (Early 2004)

Xserve G5/2.0 (PCI-X)

Apple Xserve G5/2.0 (PCI-X)
The Apple Xserve G5/2.0, along with the Xserve G5/2.0 DP and Xserve G5/2.0 DP (Cluster Node), is a member of the first rackmount Mac series to use the 64-bit PowerPC 970fx (G5) processor. In addition to higher clock speeds, the PowerPC 970fx (G5) has a "new execution core that features massively parallel computation for an unprecedented 215 in-flight instructions", and the Xserve G5 uses a new system architecture as well. Together this combination results in major speed gains compared to earlier Apple systems.

The Apple Xserve G5/2.0 features a 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970fx (G5) processor with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 512k "on chip" level 2 cache, 512 MB or 1 GB of PC3200 EEC SDRAM, an 80 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, a 24X CD-ROM drive or DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive (with an optional DVD-R/CD-RW SuperDrive available after January 4, 2005), and dual Gigabit Ethernet in a 1U case that fits in an industry-standard 19" rack. It shipped without a video card.

Connectivity includes USB 2.0, Firewire "800", and dual PCI-X slots. Due to the cooling requirements of the processor, the Xserve G5 models only support three "hot swappable" Apple Drive Modules compared to four in the Xserve G4 models replaced.

There are two versions of this model (ML/9216A), which shipped from January 6, 2004 to January 4, 2005 with 512 MB of RAM and a CD-ROM drive, and M9743LL/A, which shipped from January 4, 2005 to August 7, 2006 with 1 GB of RAM, a DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, and a maximum RAM capacity of 16 GB (up from 8 GB in the first configuration).

The Xserve G5/2.0 shipped with an unlimited user version of MacOS X Server 10.3 upon release and MacOS X Server 10.4 "Tiger" after September 13, 2005. Custom configurations also were available.

Xserve G5/2.0 DP Cluster Node (PCI-X)

It shipped configured with 512 MB of PC3200 EEC SDRAM, an 80 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, and dual Gigabit Ethernet in a 1U case that fits in an industry-standard 19" rack.

Designed to be "clustered" in quantity with a standard Xserve G5 as a "head node", the Xserve G5/2.0 DP Cluster Node allows multiple systems to be used together for intensive computing tasks, but has a single drive bay (instead of three) and no optical drive to cut costs (Apple sold it for US$2999, the same price as the single processor Xserve G5/2.0). Like the "head node" Xserve G5, the "Cluster Node" includes USB 2.0, Firewire "800", and dual PCI-X slots.

The Xserve G5/2.0 DP Cluster Node shipped with a ten user version of MacOS X Server 10.3 (instead of an unlimited user version). Custom configurations also were available.
