Finding the IBM Power5+ board with part number 44V2804 can be quite a challenge.

This specific board, featuring a 1-way 1.9GHz CPU, was utilized in various machines like the pSeries 9111-285, 9131-52a, and the iSeries 9406-520.

IBM had multiple Field Replacement Unit (FRU) part numbers for feature code 8327, and the 44V2804 was among these.
Most, if not all, of these FRUs served as direct replacements for the 44V2804.

If you need to discuss availability options for the 44V2804, we have this IBM Part Number and equivalent items in stock and available for immediate shipment.
We also have replacement options and demo units for testing with your in-house hardware.

Numerous IBM p5 servers are still operational globally today, serving various sectors such as retail, banking, credit unions, and government entities at local, state, and federal levels, including organizations like NASA, FAA, and USDA, among others. If you belong to any of these categories or are a prime contractor in need of discussing the availability of the 44V2804, we have equivalent items in stock ready for immediate shipment. Feel free to contact us today to explore replacement options or even inquire about demo units for testing with your in-house applications.

The IBM System Planner (System Board Backplane) includes a single-core 1.9 GHz POWER5+ Processor Card with a 36MB L3 Cache. This processor card is designated as FC 8327 – 520. The 8327 model is a base model 520 system planar (System Board) that houses a 1-way advanced Power5+ DMC Processor with a 36MB L3 Cache.

Key Specs:
– Processor Type: 1-way POWER5+
– Processor Clock Speed: 1.9 GHz
– L3 Cache Size: 36MB
– Model Compatibility: Designed for use with the Model 520 server.

Usage Details for 9405-520:
– Minimum Required: 0
– Maximum Allowed: 1 (Initial order maximum: 1)

Note: If your system feature code is 8325, 8327, or 8330, these codes are associated with model 520 systems that feature a double data rate (DDR) IOPless slot (C4). The DDR slot is exclusively compatible with IOPless adapters, especially those requiring extra high bandwidth. However, it is also backward compatible with slower PCI adapters.
