    Does Xeon E5506 support physical address extension?

      Hello,

       

      A client of mine wants to add memory to his HP Proliant ML350 G6 server.  The server currently has 4GB installed, running Windows Server 2008 Standard 32 bit and a Xeon E5506 processor.  According to Microsoft a 32 bit version of Windows Server 2008 Standard can only supprt 4GB of memory.  I'm wondering if my processor supports physical address extension and if this would be a plausible option for us to improve system performance.  I don't have any expereince with PAE and am not sure that this would improve performance even if our processor supports this technology.  Looking for some advice from those who have expereince with this.  Thanks in advance.
