UEFI operating modes

The SR675 V3 offers preset operating modes that affect energy consumption and performance. These modes are a collection of predefined low-level UEFI settings that simplify the task of tuning the server to suit your business and workload requirements.

The following table lists the feature codes that allow you to specify the mode you wish to preset in the factory for CTO orders.

Table 11. UEFI operating mode presets in DCSC
Feature code Description
BFYA Operating mode selection for: "Maximum Efficiency Mode"
BFYB Operating mode selection for: "Maximum Performance Mode"

The preset modes for the SR675 V3 are as follows:

  • Maximum Efficiency Mode (feature BFYA): Maximizes performance/watt efficiency while maintaining reasonable performance
  • Maximum Performance Mode (feature BFYB): Achieves maximum performance but with higher power consumption and lower energy efficiency.

For details about these preset modes, and all other performance and power efficiency UEFI settings offered in the SR675 V3, see the paper "Tuning UEFI Settings for Performance and Energy Efficiency on AMD Processor-Based ThinkSystem Servers", available from https://lenovopress.lenovo.com/lp1267.

9x4 RDIMMs (also known as Optimized or EC4 RDIMMs) are a new lower-cost DDR5 memory option supported in ThinkSystem V3 servers. 9x4 DIMMs offer the same performance as standard RDIMMs (known as 10x4 or EC8 modules), however they support lower fault-tolerance characteristics. Standard RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs support two 40-bit subchannels (that is, a total of 80 bits), whereas 9x4 RDIMMs support two 36-bit subchannels (a total of 72 bits). The extra bits in the subchannels allow standard RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs to support Single Device Data Correction (SDDC), however 9x4 RDIMMs do not support SDDC. Note, however, that all DDR5 DIMMs, including 9x4 RDIMMs, support Bounded Fault correction, which enables the server to correct most common types of DRAM failures.

For more information on DDR5 memory, see the Lenovo Press paper, Introduction to DDR5 Memory, available from https://lenovopress.com/lp1618.

The following rules apply when selecting the memory configuration:

  • The SR675 V3 supports quantities 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 DIMMs per processor; other quantities not supported
  • The server supports four types of DIMMs: 9x4 RDIMMs, 10x4 RDIMMs, x8 RDIMMs and 3DS RDIMMs
    • UDIMMs and LRDIMMs are not supported
  • All memory DIMMs must be identical part numbers
  • SXM5 configurations with the NVIDIA HGX H100 80GB 700W 4-GPU Board (feature BQQV) have minimum memory requirements. For SXM5 configurations, the following rules apply:
    • With 1 CPU installed, only the following memory configurations are supported:
      • 10x or 12x 64GB RDIMMs (feature BQ36 or BQ3D)
      • 8x, 10x, or 12x 96GB 3DS RDIMMs (feature BUVV)
      • 8x, 10x, or 12x 128GB 3DS RDIMMs (feature BQ3A)
    • With 2 CPUs installed, only the following memory configurations are supported:
      • 16x, 20x, or 24x 32GB DIMMs (feature BQ37)
      • 16x, 20x, or 24x 64GB DIMMs (feature BQ36 or BQ3D)
      • 16x, 20x, or 24x 96GB DIMMs (feature BUVV)
      • 16x, 20x, or 24x 128GB DIMMs (feature BQ3A)

Note: Memory mirroring and memory rank sparing are not supported.

For best performance, consider the following:

  • Ensure the memory installed is at least the same speed as the memory bus of the selected processor.
  • Populate all 12 memory channels with identical DIMMs (same Lenovo part number)

The following memory protection technologies are supported:

  • ECC detection/correction
  • Bounded Fault detection/correction
  • SDDC (for x4-based memory DIMMs; look for "x4" in the DIMM description. Not supported with 9x4 RDIMMs)
  • Patrol/Demand Scrubbing
  • DRAM Address Command Parity with Replay
  • DRAM Uncorrected ECC Error Retry
  • On-die ECC
  • ECC Error Check and Scrub (ECS)
  • Post Package Repair

Internal storage

The SR675 V3 supports drives at the front of the server as shown in the Components and connectors section. The choice of drive bays depends on the GPU configuration selected, as described in Configurations section:

  • SXM5 model - choice of:
    • 4x 2.5-inch hot-swap NVMe drive bays
    • 4x E3.S 1T EDSFF hot-swap drives
  • 4-DW GPU model - choice of:
    • 8x 2.5-inch hot-swap AnyBay drive bays supporting SAS, SATA or NVMe drives
  • 8-DW GPU model:
    • 6x EDSFF E1.S 5.9 mm hot-swap NVMe drive bays
    • 4x EDSFF E3.S 1T hot-swap drives

All drives are hot-swap and are accessible from the front of the server.

Where NVMe drives are supported, they are all connected using four PCIe lanes which means there is no NVMe oversubscription.

The server also supports one or two M.2 drives for OS boot functions, installed in an M.2 adapter internal to the server.

In this section:

RAID flash power module (supercap) support

If you plan to add one of the RAID adapters that includes a RAID flash power module (supercap) as a field upgrade, then you will also need to order a Supercap installation kit for the supercap. For CTO orders, the components needed are automatically derived when you select the RAID adapter.

The SR675 V3 supports up to two supercap holders. SR675 V3 supports 2x rear risers and each of them can support one supercap holder on the top slot. Note that the serial port cable is placed at the same slot. If the slot is occupied by the supercap holder, then the serial port cable needs to be assigned to a different port.

Serial port is disabled for the 2x supercap configuration.

The following figure shows the RAID flash power module in SR675 V3.

Figure 11. RAID flash power module (supercap) support in SR675 V3

The RAID adapters that require a supercap holder are as follows:

  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8i 4GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter (PN: 4Y37A09728)
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-8e 4GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter (PN: 4Y37A78836)
  • ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter (PN: 4Y37A09730)

Configuration notes:

  • RAID adapters are not supported in the front risers PCIe slots.
  • Supercap support: The table lists whether the adapter includes a power module (supercap) to power the flash memory. The server supports only 1 supercap as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section. The number of supercaps supported also determines the maximum number of RAID adapters with flash that can be installed in the server, both for internal drive connectivity and external drive connectivity.
  • Field upgrades: If you are adding a RAID adapter with supercap to the server as a field upgrade, you may need a supercap holder as described in the RAID flash power module (supercap) support section.
  • E810 Ethernet and X350 RAID/HBAs: The use of both an Intel E810 network adapter and an X350 HBA/RAID adapter (9350, 5350 and 4350) is currently not supported in ThinkSystem servers. For details see Support Tip HT513226. Planned support for this combination of adapters is 3Q/2024.

For SXM configurations, the supported adapter is ThinkSystem RAID 940-16i 8GB Flash PCIe Gen4 12Gb Adapter for U.2 (BCYV). In this setting this adapter supports NVMe U.2 drives only. Additionally, support for the NVMe U.2 drives connected via a PCIe x4 link to the controller are available with SXM configurations 8, 11, 12, 17, and 18.

The RAID 940-8i and RAID 940-16i adapters also support NVMe through a feature named Tri-Mode support (or Trimode support). This feature enables the use of NVMe U.3 drives at the same time as SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode requires an AnyBay backplane. Cabling of the controller to the backplanes is the same as with SAS/SATA drives, and the NVMe drives are connected via a PCIe x1 link to the controller.

NVMe drives connected using Tri-Mode support provide better performance than SAS or SATA drives: A SATA SSD has a data rate of 6Gbps, a SAS SSD has a data rate of 12Gbps, whereas an NVMe U.3 Gen 4 SSD with a PCIe x1 link will have a data rate of 16Gbps. NVMe drives typically also have lower latency and higher IOPS compared to SAS and SATA drives. Tri-Mode is supported with U.3 NVMe drives in either 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor and requires an AnyBay backplane.

Tri-Mode requires U.3 drives: Only NVMe drives with a U.3 interface are supported. U.2 drives are not supported. See the Internal drive options section for the U.3 drives supported by the server.

For details about these adapters, see the relevant product guide:

Internal drive options

The following tables list the drive options for internal storage of the server.

M.2 drive support: The use of M.2 drives requires an additional adapter as described in the M.2 drives subsection.

SED support: The tables include a column to indicate which drives support SED encryption. The encryption functionality can be disabled if needed. Note: Not all SED-enabled drives have "SED" in the description.

Note: The front risers are specifically designed to accommodate network adapters. RAID adapters are supported only in the rear slots.

As listed in the table, there are three DW GPU risers, one x8 riser and two x16 risers. The x8 riser offers four x8 slots for double-wide GPUs with direct uplinks to the processors. The two x16 offer four x16 slots for double-wide GPUs, however the difference is the uplink (host) connection.

  1. The direct x16 riser (feature BR7Q) has four x16 connections (64 lanes total, implemented using eight x8 cables) for connecting to the system processors. This provides a direct 1:1 connection to all four GPUs.
  2. The switched riser with GPUDirect RDMA (feature BR7S) it allows the implementation of NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA. Designed specifically for the needs of GPU acceleration, GPUDirect RDMA provides direct communication between NVIDIA GPUs in remote systems. This eliminates the system CPUs and the required buffer copies of data via the system memory, resulting in 10X better performance. The riser provides a x16 connection to a single CPU (a 1:4 connection to the four GPUs) and a x16 connection directly to I/O slots.
  3. The direct x8 riser (feature BR7R) has four x8 connections (32 lanes total, implemented using four x8 cables) for connecting to the system processors. This provides a direct 1:1 connection to all eight GPUs.
  4. The NVIDIA SXM5 CX7 Mezz Carrier Board (feature BR7P) provides a networking interface including four NVIDIA ConnectX-7 VPI network controllers for the Nvidia SXM5 baseboard. This provides an OSFP connection to the Front IO riser. The riser allows GPU direct connections for the network only.
  5. The SXM5 PCIe Switch Riser (feature BR9D) supports 4-Way SXM5 4-GPU baseboard. The switched riser allows the implementation of NVIDIA GPU Direct. This eliminates the system CPUs and the required buffer copies of data via the system memory, resulting in better performance. BR9D provides two x16 connection to the Front IO riser that are NVIDIA GPU Direct.

    In a dual socket configuration, the riser provides four x16 connections to the CPUs (a 2:4 connection to the four GPUs), but no direct rear I/O connections. No additional GPU Direct connections.

    Use of the GPU risers is as follows:

    • The 8-DW GPU model uses 2 switched risers. This provides connections for eight GPUs using a 1:2 or 1:4 subscription.
      • A direct x8 riser to provide connections for up to four double-wide GPUs. Each GPU gets a x8 connection.
    • The 4-DW GPU model can use either
      • A direct x16 riser (1:1) or a switched x16 riser (1:2 or 1:4) to provide connections for four GPUs. Each GPU gets a x16 connection. The choice of GPU riser is based on what other I/O risers are used in the configuration.
    • The SXM GPU model can use either:
      • A PCIe switch riser or a ConnectX-7 4-chip VPI PCIe Gen5 Mezz Controller to provide connection to the NVIDIA HGX H100 80GB 700W 4-GPU Board. The HGX 4-GPU board gets four x16 connection. The choice of GPU riser is based on the need for NVIDIA GPU Direct and the I/O Front network connections.

    The slots at the rear of the server are 2-slot risers. The mechanical cage has a third slot at the top which does not support an adapter, but is instead of use either for a serial port or for a RAID adapter supercap. Adapter slots are as follows:

    • Riser BR7N has one PCIe 5.0 x16 slots
    • Riser BR7L has two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots. It supports PCIe 5.0 on the bottom slot (slot 15 and slot 20). It supports PCIe 5.0 on top slot depending on configuration*
    • Riser BR7M has one PCIe 5.0 x16 slot (bottom slot) and one PCIe 4.0 x8 slot (top slot - slot 21)

    *Slot 21 exhibits a maximum compatibility with Gen4 in select configurations: 3, 4, 8, 12, 18, 22, 23, 26, 28, and 31

    The following figure shows the rear riser.

    SR675 V3 rear riser
    Figure 14. Rear riser

Serial port

The SR675 V3 optionally supports an RS-232 serial port by adding a COM port bracket to either rear riser cage in the top slot position. This position is not used by any adapter so there is no loss of PCIe slot availability, however the location is shared with the RAID supercap.

Note: The serial port is only supported in configurations with rear slots. The table in the Configurations section indicates which configurations have rear slots.

Configuration rules:

  • Some NVIDIA A Series GPUs are available as two feature codes, one with a CEC chip and one without a CEC chip (ones without the CEC chip have "w/o CEC" in the name). The CEC is a secondary Hardware Root of Trust (RoT) module that provides an additional layer of security, which can be used by customers who have high regulatory requirements or high security standards. NVIDIA uses a multi-layered security model and hence the protection offered by the primary Root of Trust embedded in the GPU is expected to be sufficient for most customers. The CEC defeatured products still offer Secure Boot, Secure Firmware Update, Firmware Rollback Protection, and In-Band Firmware Update Disable. Specifically, without the CEC chip, the GPU does not support Key Revocation or Firmware Attestation. CEC and non-CEC GPUs of the same type of GPU can be mixed in field upgrades.

  • The double-wide GPUs also support the installation of an NVLink bridge between adjacent pairs of GPUs. H100 and A100 GPUs use three NVLink bridges per pair. A40 and A30 GPUs support one NVLink bridge per pair. Ordering information in the following table.

Platform Firmware Resiliency - Lenovo ThinkShield

Lenovo's ThinkShield Security is a transparent and comprehensive approach to security that extends to all dimensions of our data center products: from development, to supply chain, and through the entire product lifecycle.

The ThinkSystem SR675 V3 includes Platform Firmware Resiliency (PFR) hardware Root of Trust (RoT) which enables the system to be NIST SP800-193 compliant. This offering further enhances key platform subsystem protections against unauthorized firmware updates and corruption, to restore firmware to an integral state, and to closely monitor firmware for possible compromise from cyber-attacks.

PFR operates upon the following server components:

  • UEFI image – the low-level server firmware that connects the operating system to the server hardware
  • XCC image – the management “engine” software that controls and reports on the server status separate from the server operating system
  • FPGA image – the code that runs the server’s lowest level hardware controller on the motherboard

The Lenovo Platform Root of Trust Hardware performs the following three main functions:

  • Detection – Measures the firmware and updates for authenticity
  • Recovery – Recovers a corrupted image to a known-safe image
  • Protection – Monitors the system to ensure the known-good firmware is not maliciously written

These enhanced protection capabilities are implemented using a dedicated, discrete security processor whose implementation has been rigorously validated by leading third-party security firms. Security evaluation results and design details are available for customer review – providing unprecedented transparency and assurance.

The SR675 V3 includes support for Secure Boot, a UEFI firmware security feature developed by the UEFI Consortium that ensures only immutable and signed software are loaded during the boot time. The use of Secure Boot helps prevent malicious code from being loaded and helps prevent attacks, such as the installation of rootkits. Lenovo offers the capability to enable secure boot in the factory, to ensure end-to-end protection.
