Model Abstract 7012-39H

The RS/6000 Model 39H extends the performance range of the RS/6000 300 Series desktop systems. The Model 39H is a multiuser, multitasking numeric intensive computing system that offers: a 67MHz POWER2 processor; 64MB to 512MB of memory; 2.2GB to 27.3GB of internal disk; four Micro Channel* slots; 32KB instruction cache; 128KB data cache; and 4-word memory bus. Outstanding floating-point levels exceed the performance of previous 300 series models. The 39H is a natural as a numeric intensive computer server, technical server, and graphical simulations system because it offers a 4-word memory subsystem. This memory bus is two times the width of the Model 390 and provides the capability of moving larger blocks of data through the processor complex which is a requirement for technical applications.

The Model 39H also offers an 8X CD-ROM drive, a 1.44MB diskette drive, and one available 5.25-inch half-high media bay. Standard features include an 80MB/sec Micro Channel with four expansion slots, one dual- ported integrated SCSI-2 fast/wide controller (one port for internal and one for external devices) and an integrated Ethernet** interface to provide additional capabilities. The wide variety of input/output devices and communication features offers you a powerful server, configured to meet your needs.

The Model 39H includes a 1-2 user, full function AIX Version 4 package at no additional charge. See AIX Program Number 5764-C34 for additional details.

Description

Performance and Expandability:

The Model 39H contains a 67MHz processor capable of higher-levels of performance and expandability than previously available RS/6000 series systems.

The Model 39H is designed to grow with your needs. The standard memory of 64MB on these models can be increased to 512MB, using 256MB CPU memory and one 256MB memory card. In addition, the optional 1MB or 2MB L2 cache provides additional performance. A 2.2GB SCSI-2 8-bit internal disk drive is standard. Up to three disk drives may be installed internally for a total internal capacity of 27.3GB.

The Model 39H also contains an integrated SCSI-2 dual-ported Fast/Wide controller and one integrated Ethernet interface as standard features. These features are integrated into the I/O board and do not occupy any of the four Micro Channel expansion slots, which are available for additional features such as SCSI controllers, communication adapters, and graphics adapters. In addition, media devices such as an 8X CD-ROM, tape backup units, and disk drives may be installed in the two 5.25-inch, half-high media bays. The standard CD-ROM drive occupies one of the media bays.

You can select from the standard 8-bit disk drive to 16-bit SCSI-2 Fast/Wide drive and from CD-ROM to tape.

Level 2 (L2) Cache:

The optional L2 cache, in addition to the already resident L1 cache, provides significant performance improvements to many applications. L2 cache, being much larger than the L1 cache, accommodates large programs and increases the probability that the next instruction or data can be found in the cache thus avoiding the access of main memory. The L2 cache, in conjunction with the L1 cache and main memory, provides a three-level hierarchy of memory, which provides the best balance of cost and performance efficiency for most commercial and technical customers.

Standard Features:

Interoperability:

The Model 39H and AIX operating system offer interoperability with other IBM* and other vendor's systems, protecting your data processing investment.

The Model 39H is binary compatible with previously announced RS/6000 systems to help to protect the customer's investment in software and hardware.

A system installation and management facility is provided as part of the operating system. The System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) facilitates the performance of system management tasks, such as software installation and configuration, device configuration and management, problem determination and storage management.

Product Positioning

The RS/6000 Model 39H is the highest performance desktop server offered by IBM. It features an implementation of the POWER2 architecture, which is the industry's most advanced generation of super scalar design. The differences in performance between a RS/6000 Model 39H and the Model 390 are very significant in the support of applications that require numerically intensive computing. The wider path to memory and higher capacity for L2 cache available on the 39H provides additional performance for applications which have found those factors to limit performance. The primary focus of the 39H as a product is to meet the requirements of the desktop technical server marketplace and those users who do not have the memory, storage, or I/O requirements that can only be fulfilled in a larger, deskside model.

Model Upgrade Descriptive / Ordering Information

All upgrades from a Model 340, 34H, 350, 360 and 370 to a Model 39H will be shipped using a new "chassis exchange" process.

All upgrades from a Model 380 and 390 to a Model 39H will be shipped using a processor upgrade.

The upgrade provides a model conversion for customers with these installed systems and want the RS/6000 Model 39H processor capability. This field installable model conversion will help provide increased system performance and contribute to the protection of a customer's initial investment in the Model 300 series systems. The resultant model conversion will retain the serial number of the before the upgrade.

Model conversion offers a high degree of flexibility in increasing the performance level of the system and helping the customers, with computation-intensive applications, to take advantage of the performance of the new processor while protecting their investment in disks and features.

Model Upgrade Compatibility

The RS/6000 Model 380, 390 and 39H use a SCSI-2 fast/wide interface. All other external interfaces are the same as on the Model 340, 34H, 350, 360 and 370. The following cables will be required for externally attached devices after the model conversion:

Models 380, 390, and 39H use an integrated SCSI-2 fast/wide interface. All other external interfaces are the same as on the Models 340, 34H, 350, 360, and 370.

Cables used for attaching existing SCSI devices are not compatible with the new SCSI-2 integrated interface. The following cables are required with the integrated SCSI-2 fast/wide interface:

 FEATURE    DESCRIPTION
 -------    -----------
 2439       8-bit IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A to Single-Ported Device
 2437       8-bit IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A to Dual-Ported Device
 2435       16-bit IBM SCSI-2 Fast/Wide Adapter/A to Dual-Ported Device
 

Memory must be installed in pairs. CPU memory and memory card must be of equal capacity.

Because the Model 39H is a POWER2 model with a multichip ceramic module (MCM), the memory must be installed in pairs. This is unlike any other 300 Series Model.

Due to space limitations caused by the regulator card and a large MCM on the new processor card, there is only one memory card slot.

Provision has been made to add memory SIMMs on the PROCESSOR card. The memory MB on the processor card must equal the memory MB on the memory card. There are 8 SIMM positions on both cards.

The standard 64-MB memory is composed of 32MB Processor Card SIMM Memory and a 32-MB Memory card. It can be increased to 512 MB by utilizing 256MB Processor Card SIMM memory and a 256-MB Memory card.

A number of new feature codes have been created to handle memory granularity.

The only way to increase (upgrade) the system memory will be to remove the installed SIMMs and replace them with SIMMs of a greater capacity.

Concurrent diagnostics for AIX 3.2.5 will be shipped with 3.2.5 Enhancement 5 and will be available on 3/31/95. Customers with machines shipped between 2/17 and 3/31 MUST order the service APAR (#IX48613) for concurrent diagnostics.

Machines which use the Media Bay Disk Drive Mounting kit (for installing 3.5" disk drives in the available 5.25" media bay) will support any valid 1-GB, 1.1-GB, 2-GB, 2.2-GB, or 4.5-GB disk drive. This feature is automatically configured when required with an associated disk drive. It is not available as an independently ordered feature. Maximum number of disk drives supported in the media bay is one.

L2 Cache Memory (4045 and 4046) must be installed in pairs.

Hardware Requirements

IBM supported ASCII terminal or IBM supported display, display adapter and keyboard.

Software Requirements

AIX/6000 applications written for POWER-based RS/6000 models will run on the new POWER2-based models without recompilation, and will run significantly faster. Additional performance improvements can be achieved by recompiling with the latest versions of the IBM XL compilers to further exploit the POWER2 technology.

Applications compiled using a compiler option that exploits POWER2 technology may not function properly on systems that do not employ the new POWER2 technology. Customers with any combination of POWER-, PowerPC 601*-and POWER2-based systems may continue to run their applications unmodified. New applications and recompilation of existing applications for use in a mixed processor environment should be compiled using the POWER or common mode options available in the XL compilers or any other compilers that support those options. Refer to Software Announcements 293-488 and 293-493, dated September 21, 1993, for more information.

Concurrent diagnostics for AIX 3.2.5 will be shipped with 3.2.5 Enhancement 5 and will be available on 03/31/95.

Customers with machines shipped between 2/17 and 3/31/95 MUST order the service APAR (#IX48613) for concurrent diagnostics.

(#2402) - IBM Network Terminal Accelerator - 256 Session

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of January 8, 1998)

The Network Terminal Accelerator - 256 Session Feature is an Ethernet adapter which accelerates network performance by offloading the telnet and rlogin daemons, TCP/IP protocol stack and virtual terminal I/O management from the RS/6000 system. The Network adapter buffers the system from frequent CPU intensive packet interrupts and reduces context switches, dramatically reducing CPU load. Network adapter increases terminal I/O throughput and the number of concurrent on-line user sessions.

The Network adapter software also provides a "pass-through" capability for other Ethernet protocols, which can eliminate the need for a separate Ethernet adapter. For network management adapter supports onboard SNMP.

The Network adapter is a 32 bit bus master Micro Channel card with a 25-Mhz i960 high-performance RISC processor and 2 MB of two-way bank interleaved DRAM memory with parity. It provides one AUI DB-15 Ethernet port for attachment to a user supplied Ethernet transceiver of any Ethernet media type, 10Base-T, 10Base2, or 10Base5. And it supports both 802.3 and DIX V2.

(#2404) - IBM Ultimedia Video I/O Adapter

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of January 8, 1998)

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter for the RS/6000 provides a broad based solution for video enablement on the RS/6000. The Video I/O adapter is comprised of two cards: a base microchannel feature card which provides video in and video out and an optional guest card which provides hardware assisted video data compression or decompression. Each card is separately orderable; however, it is required to have the base card installed as a prerequisite to the guest card. The Video I/O adapter requires only one microchannel slot of space with either the base card or the base and guest card installed.

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter provides support for numerous multimedia applications requiring video. Support is provided for these application requirements: still or full-motion video, NTSC, PAL or S-video standards and YUV or RGB color spaces. A variety of image sizes are supported in the video capture mode and one busmaster DMA channel is offered to enhanced system thruput. A further benefit is the savings obtained through the use of the compression and decompression algorithm provided on the guest card which provides considerable assistance with regards to transporting video data internally in the system or across the network, as only the compressed data need be sent.. The compression algorithm supported in hardware is M-JPEG, a universal video compression/decompression format. The compression/ decompression hardware is fully programmable to allow the user to select the compression level desired.

The Ultimedia Video I/O adapter provides the required support for applications such as multimedia enabled training, authoring, desktop publishing, video collaboration (still or live), and video distribution.

Details of Supported Functions

Video Formats Supported

Base Card Functions

The base card supports several programmable functions directly and additionally provides the system level interface for the guest compression/decompression card. The functions provided on the base card include: analog to digital conversion with video capture support, digital to analog conversion with video out support, selectable color space conversion for video in, monitoring of incoming video images with a supported IBM graphics adapter and/or an external video monitor, scaling the size of the incoming video image, and DMA transfer of the digital image data to and from the card.

Compression/Decompression Guest Card

The compression/decompression Guest card supports the M-JPEG algorithm in either the compression mode or decompression mode. This card supports full-motion video capture or video out utilizing the enablements provided by the base video card mentioned previously. Video monitoring concurrent with M-JPEG compression is supported as on the base card.

When compression is required, the quality or compression information is provided by the user through software interface whereas the decompression file sent to the adapter contains the necessary information for software to automatically interpret for the user the necessary command and control information.

Video out images may be accepted as either full-size NTSC or PAL or CIF size NTSC or PAL from the system. Scaling of the CIF size images to full-size NTSC, PAL or S-video images for video out is featured through support on the Guest card.

The Video I/O adapter supports M-JPEG compression of various image sizes with concurrent monitoring as shown:

(#2720) - Fiber Distributed Data Interface Single-Ring Adapter

FC 2720 is no longer available.

The Fiber Distributed Data Interface adapter uses FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface), a LAN communications technology that uses optical cabling designed for a line speed of up to 100 Megabits/sec.

FDDI is designed to support the TCP/IP protocol, and supports NFS(10) over TCP/IP. The FDDI implementation supports ANSI standard X3T9.5, with the exception that Station Management (SMT) function is limited to Agent support only. A programming interface (API) is provided for the device driver.

Fiber optic cable is designed to be immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI). Therefore, using fiber technology may prevent jamming by high power emissions. Additionally, fiber optics do not emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR). This feature enhances security, since it helps prevent eavesdropping.

The RS/6000 Fiber Distributed Data Interface Single-Ring Adapter provides a single-attach station (SAS) option and attaches to the FDDI Network's primary ring directly or via an external FDDI Concentrator. Connection via an external FDDI Concentrator isolates the workstations from the primary ring and protects the network from routine station on/off cycles and individual station failures. Each FDDI adapter requires one Micro Channel card slot (see "Limitations" section of the sales manual for maximum limits per adapter). The FDDI card requires Multi-Mode (62.5/125 Micron) FDDI optical fiber jumper cables. The FDDI jumper cables are available in five standard lengths of 4 meter (12 feet), 7 meter (20 feet), 15 meter (50 feet), 31 meter ( 100 feet) and 61 meter (200 feet) or custom lengths in one foot increments. They are available with MIC, FC , ST, or SC connectors.

For more information about the jumper cables, planning, design, and installation of optical fiber cabling systems, refer to IBM Publication GA27-3943, "IBM Cabling System Optical Fiber Installation and Planning Guide."

Jumper cables are the responsibility of the customer and may be ordered from your local authorized IBM cabling distributor or by calling 1-800-IBM-2468 in the United States.

In addition, customers need to install the latest PMP available for the AIX/6000 operating system. For the graPHIGS API, GPC Picture Level Benchmark (PLB) results for the PLBsurf93 show significant performance improvements. Based on these results, it is expected that 3D applications will see performance improvements, but the amount of improvement will vary for each application. Since the functionality of the new adapters is the same as the original adapters, applications which run on the original adapters require no modifications to run on the performance-enhanced versions.

(#2791) - POWER Gt4x 24-bit Feature

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 21, 1993) The POWER Gt4 and POWER Gt4x adapters provide low to mid-range 3D graphics capabilities, respectively, for the RS/6000 3xx along with maximum configuration flexibility (24-bit Gt4 and Gt4x NOT supported on 3X5). Both adapters provide double 8-or 24-bit frame buffers that allow 256 or approximately 16.7 million simultaneous colors, respectively, from a palette of approximately 16.7 million colors. These adapters also include a standard 24-bit Z-Buffer that assists with hidden-line and surface removal. Performance differentiates the functionally equivalent POWER Gt4 from the POWER Gt4x. The POWER Gt4x has four additional processors that boost its performance to meet the requirements of more demanding graphics applications. The POWER Gt4 and POWER Gt4x support a display resolution of 1280 x 1024, including monitors that comply with Part 3 of the ISO 9241 ergonomic standard. These ergonomic displays provide users with improved viewing and physical comfort, minimized reflections, and sharper images. The POWER Gt4 and Gt4x 8-bit adapters both require two Micro Channel slots while the 24-bit configuration for both requires an additional Micro Channel slot (total of three slots). The POWER Gt4 is suitable for the same types of applications as the POWER Gt4e. The POWER Gt4x is suitable for a larger range of applications including: 3D mechanical CAD, aerospace applications, reservoir simulations, molecular modeling, and geographical mapping.

Note: The 24-bit POWER Gt4i graphics adapter (feature #2713) and the 8-bit and 24-bit POWER Gt4xi graphics adapters (features #2711 and 2712, described below) have been announced in September 1993 and replace the POWER Gt4 and POWER Gt4x (feature #2796, 2790 and 2791). The enhanced adapters primarily improve the 3D performance of the original adapters. To obtain these improvements, additional supporting software (shipped with the adapters) must be installed against the AIX/6000 Version 3.2 operating system. In addition, customers need to install the latest PMP available for the AIX/6000 operating system.

(#8128) - 128-Port Asynchronous Controller

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of December 1, 2000)

The 128-Port Async Controller subsystem provides attachment for a high concentration of asynchronous lines (up to 128) from a single Micro Channel slot. Two synchronous channels link the adapter to a maximum of eight 16-Port Remote Async Nodes (FC 8130-US and Canada only; FC 8134-World Trade only); up to four 16-Port Remote Async Nodes can be linked to each synchronous channel. This configuration provides the ability to attach up to 128 EIA-232 devices per adapter.

One 4.5-meter (15-foot) cable (FC 8131 or customer-supplied cables) is available to connect the adapter to the first Remote Async Node on each synchronous channel. Additional Remote Async Nodes may be connected to each synchronous channel in a "daisy chain" configuration, using either the 4.5-meter (15-foot) cable (FC 8131) or the 23-cm. (9-inch) cable (FC 8132), the shorter cable being recommended when stacking Remote Async Nodes. Customer-supplied cables may also be substituted.

The RJ-45 to DB-25 Converter Cable (FC 8133--quantity four per order) can be used to attach devices having a DB-25 connector to the Remote Async Nodes. One RJ-45 wrap plug and two Controller Line Terminator plugs are included with each adapter order. Each Remote Async Node order (FC 8130 or FC 8134) includes a US/Canadian or World Trade power supply, respectively; power supplies are not separately orderable for this product.

Characteristics:

The 128-Port Async Controller subsystem is compatible with all temperature, humidity, vibration, EMC, and other environmental limits of the base RS/6000 product.
