Intel® E7500 Chipset Product Brief
Intel® E7500 Chipset Stable Technology for Today’s Business Solutions
The Intel® E7500 chipset represents the next step in Intel® server chipset technology. The first in a family of volume chipsets, the Intel E7500 chipset supports dual processor server platforms optimized for the Intel® Xeon™ processor with 512 KB L2 cache and Intel® NetBurst™ microarchitecture. The Intel E7500 chipset design delivers maximized system bus, memory, and I/O bandwidth to enhance performance, scalability, and end-user productivity while providing a smooth transition to the next-generation server technologies.
Benefits of Advanced Technology and I/O Flexibility:
The Intel E7500 chipset utilizes a modular design and offers platform implementation flexibility to meet the expanding needs of dual processor (DP) servers through three core components:
The E7500 Memory Controller Hub (MCH) is the central hub for all data passing through core system elements such as the dual Intel Xeon processors with 512 KB L2 cache via the system bus interface, the memory via memory interface, and both the 64-bit PCI/PCI-X and I/O controller hubs via Intel hub interfaces. The Intel E7500 chipset delivers compelling performance at 3.2 GB/s of bandwidth across the 400 MHz system bus and up to 3.2 GB/s of bandwidth across two high-performance Double Data Rate SDRAM memory channels. To balance the performance offered by the processor and memory interfaces, the MCH allows several high-bandwidth I/O configuration options for a total of 3.2 GB/s of I/O bandwidth. Together, these features deliver balanced, high-throughput system performance for dual processor server platforms.
