    Hi John,

    The style that I listed in my submission (Style ES7005263-GS) is for
    an 8X configured with 2 processors per bus on a total of 4 busses.
    The ES7000 is orderable with this style and it is what we expect to
    market to our 8X HPC customers.

    I understand your concerns, that is why I verified and documented the
    style number in my submission.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Regards, Tom.

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for the submission.

    These look like "partially depopulated" results, which I do not usually
    publish in the "standard" tables.

    I could be misinterpreting this, of course, but it looks like you have
    configured 2p on each of 4 busses. If this is the standard configuration
    for your 8-way system, then this is a "standard" result. If (as seems
    more likely) the standard configuration for an 8-way system is 4p on
    each of two busses, then this is a "nonstandard" result.

    For historical reference: once upon a time, HP created a separate
    model number for a similar "partially populated" system. I was then
    able to publish the results on the "standard" table under the model
    name of the "partially populated" option. Look for V2600_Enterprise
    vs V2600_Technical in the STREAM results.
