Currently we are using a pimped out Dell PowerEdge R300 with a Xeon E3113 to backup our GPFS file system. It's old but it does the job admirably and is only 100PVU. However the RAID card is no longer supported with RHEL8 so we need to upgrade the hardware.

Looking around I can get a refurbished PowerEdge R330 which is quite a bit newer and fit it with a Pentium G6400 processor which according to this is supported


It's dual core which is good to keep the PVU cost down and according to the Intel specification supports EEC memory which is even better


However IBM's table for PVU does not have a suitable entry. It's not a Xeon processor, it's not a Core i3/i5/i7 it's not AMD and it's not single core


Anyone know what it actually is for PVU? I tried ringing IBM sales in the UK but I might as well have been talking in Greek.

After some back and forth with IBM they have said it is 70 PVU.
