Intel SR1530SH/HSH and S3200SH Series - Xeon X3350/60 Not Supported Yet ...

When integrating server systems on the new SR1530SH or SR1530HSH (hot swap) 1U Intel server platforms or the new S32xxSH series server boards, one cannot jump into the new Xeon X3350 2.66GHz or X3360 2.83GHz CPUs right away.

From Intel's product support site:

Note 2: Support for these processors requires later BIOS revision, which will be available soon.

Intel Support Site links: It seems we need to wait for a BIOS update to happen.

Intel S3200SH Download site: Intel Server Board S3200SH Downloads. As of today, April 6, 2008, there is not a BIOS update package yet.

We will be keeping an eye on this page as we have upcoming server builds that we would prefer to integrate with the Xeon 3300 series CPUs.
