The SR670 server supports TruDDR4 memory. TruDDR4 memory uses the highest-quality components sourced from Tier 1 DRAM suppliers and only memory that meets strict tolerances is selected. It is compatibility tested and tuned to maximize performance and reliability.
TruDDR4 memory has a unique signature programmed into the DIMM, which enables ThinkSystem servers to verify whether the memory installed is qualified and supported. From a service and support standpoint, TruDDR4 memory automatically assumes the system's warranty, and service and support provided worldwide.
The SR670 supports up to 12 DIMMs per processor, for a total of 24 DIMMs when two processors are installed. Each processor has six memory channels, and supports one or two DIMMs per channel.
All DIMMs can operate at a speed of 2666 MHz, both at 1 DIMM per channel and 2 DIMMs per channel. However, if the processor selected has a lower memory bus speed (eg 2400 MHz), then all DIMMs will operate at that lower speed.
The following table lists the memory options that are available for the SR670 server.
|7X77A01303||AUNC||ThinkSystem 16GB TruDDR4 2666 MHz (2Rx8 1.2V) RDIMM||24 (12 per processor)|
|7X77A01304||AUND||ThinkSystem 32GB TruDDR4 2666 MHz (2Rx4 1.2V) RDIMM||24 (12 per processor)|
- The server supports RDIMMs. LRDIMMs, 3DS RDIMMs and UDIMMs are not supported.
- The ThinkSystem SR670 only supports two memory configurations:
- 12 DIMMs, which are installed in DIMM slots 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, and 24.
- 24 DIMMs, installed in all slots.
- All DIMMs to be installed must be the same type and capacity.
The following memory protection technologies are supported:
- SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description)
- ADDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs)
- Memory channel mirroring
- Memory rank sparing
If memory channel mirroring is used, then DIMMs must be installed in pairs (minimum of one pair per processor), and both DIMMs in a pair must be identical in type and size. 50% of the installed capacity is available to the operating system.
If memory rank sparing is used, then a minimum of one quad-rank DIMM, one dual-rank DIMM, or two single-rank DIMMs must be installed per populated channel (the DIMMs do not need to be identical). In rank sparing mode, one rank of a DIMM in each populated channel is reserved as spare memory. The largest rank in the channel will be automatically selected as the spare rank. The amount of memory available to the operating system depends on the number, capacity and rank counts of the DIMMs installed.
The server support 8x 2.5-inch drives. Currently, only SATA HDDs and SSDs are supported. You can mix drives in the same server, but not in the same array. Drives are all installed from the rear of the server. The server also supports one or two M.2 drives, installed in an M.2 adapter.
In this section:
Backplane and drive bays
The SR670 offers eight 2.5-inch hot-swap drive bays, located at the rear of the server. All eight drive bays are connected to a single backplane. The backplane supports SAS and SATA drives. SAS drives require the use of a supported SAS HBA or RAID controller.
The drive bays are numbered as shown in the following figure.
Figure 6. Drive bay numbering (rear of the server)
The drive bays support 6Gb SATA drives or 12Gb SAS drives. NVMe drives are not supported.
The server supports one or two M.2 form-factor SATA drives for use as an operating system boot solution. With two M.2 drives configured, the drives are configured by default as a RAID-1 mirrored pair for redundancy.
The M.2 drives install into an M.2 adapter which in turn is installed in a dedicated slot on the system board. See the internal view of the server in the Components and connectors section for the location of the M.2 slot.
There are two M.2 adapters supported, as listed in the following table.

The server has six 60 mm simple-swap fans and all six fans are standard in all models. The server offers N+1 fan redundancy, meaning that one fan can fail and the server still operates normally In typical datacenter environments. However, if the ambient temperate is above 27°C and a fan failure occurs, the GPUs may be instructed by the system to enter an emergency power reduction state whereby GPU performance will be impacted.
Each power supply has an integrated fan.
The server includes two 2000W hot-swap redundant power supplies. Both power supplies are standard.
The power supplies form a redundant pair in all server configurations except the following:
- Configurations with three GPUs
- Configurations with four GPUs
In such configurations, in the event of a single power supply failure, the server will throttle the performance of the GPUs.
