Apple Xserve G5/2.0 DP Cluster Node (PCI-X) Specs by Kenyans247(1): Sat 26, December, 2020 08:08pm
The Apple Xserve G5/2.0 DP Cluster Node, along with the Xserve G5/2.0 and Xserve G5/2.0 DP, 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 DP Cluster Node features dual 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970fx (G5) processors each with the AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 512k "on chip" level 2 cache. 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.

Despite the age of this system, site sponsor Other World Computing has RAM, hard drives, SSDs, and other upgrades available for this specific Mac while supplies last.
