I had a customer whose 12600 recently went bad. Check Point RMA’d the unit, and we had the replacement the next day. The original had extra RAM (Check Point supplied…of course), so I was able to open the appliance…and take some pictures.
Notice there are two CPUs on this unit which corresponds with the information Tobias Lachmann’s page.
…and the 500GB Hard Drive
Here are some details on the CPUs from this actual unit:
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 44
model name : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5645 @ 2.40GHz
stepping : 2
cpu MHz : 2394.000
cache size : 12288 KB
cpu cores : 6
One other point of interest, you void the warranty by opening the device. However if you need to perform the official RAM upgrade, you will get several new “tamper-proof” stickers to replace the originals.
