5585-X SSP processor architecture

Does anyone have something they can post an excerpt from "sh ver" on a 5585-X? I'm really curious about the new CPU architecture. Our 5540's and 5520's had a Pentium 4 2.0 GHz CPU. I can't find hardware specs ANYWHERE for the CPUs in any of the SSP modules (SSP-10,20,40,60).

Hi,

5585-X SSP processor architecture

Ok, so it looks like the Xeon Nehalem flavor of CPU with tri-channel memory. I got some info showing the SSP-10 has only 6GBof RAM vs 12GB for the SSP-20. Does anyone know if the CPUs are different as well? There is a big price difference between the two, and I can't see 6GB of DDR3 RAM being the sole factor.

Anyone else have any info?

Hi,

I would suggest registering at the Cisco Live! 365 Site. It has a lot of documents and actual presentation videos from the Cisco Live! events.

Here is one that might atleast partially answer your question

Hope this helps

After seeing reply below and

After seeing reply below and then investigating, it looks like the SSP-10 uses the dual core (with Hyper-Threading) E5505 CPU. The SSP-20 uses the E5506 CPU (quad core w/HT). Maybe when these first came out, I might be able to see some of the markup. Now, if you need more CPU power and the ASA is out of warranty, you can go to a reputable vendor and buy a better CPU for less than $200.
