Figure 1-1 picture is showing 4 system nodes in a fully configured E870 system
Only E880C models can configure upto 4 nodes. Please correct it.

Another supposed error information

If E870 one node max memory is 8TB then two system nodes of E870C max memory should be 16TB?

why on page 28, Table 1-9 still showing only 8TB on system memory maximum

Aside to that, on page 47, clearly mention two system nodes of E870C can address up to 16TB of memory

Please clarify

Thanks for the catch! Look for a new draft out today and we will also back route the changes to the non-C papers and those will be updated in 24 hrs.

The error was the result of the 10 core per SCM feature not being available on the new "C" models, however it is possible to have a 2 node system, each with 8 TB on the 8 core SCM and therefore total 16 TB as indicated elsewhere. Thanks again!
