An oldie, but a goodie

Back on the computing train for Friday’s picture puzzle (HINT!). This is an old bit of kit. Not so old that people aren’t still using it. But old enough that you haven’t been able to order a new one for several years. One point for just identifying what it is. Two if you know specifically which it is. The answer is down below.

It’s the top of a heatsink for a CPU. Specifically, this is for an A-class server. This is a 550MHz processor. I’ve always loved the 50s scifi look of that headsink. There really isn’t anything else like them. The A-class systems have been out of production for a long while, but there are still a lot of them kicking around, doing their work. We have one here that we use as our ignite server.
