Intel® 5000P and 5000V Chipsets Product Brief
Intel’s new server chipsets for the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series enable new, Intel® dual-processor (DP) balanced server platforms that are efficient, dependable, and responsive. Intel® dual-core processor-based platforms help businesses better utilize server assets with effective virtualization and increase density in their data centers through optimized power and thermal features.
The Intel® 5000P and the Intel® 5000V chipsets support Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM) technology at 533 and 667 MHz for faster application response and greater memory capacity. They accelerate I/O functions to increase I/O bandwidth and reduce system latency for data-intensive applications. Intel developed these chipsets specifically for Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5000 processor series-based DP platforms. These DP servers use new 1066 and 1333 MHz dual independent system buses for more responsive business services.
The Intel 5000P and Intel 5000V chipsets consist of
• Intel® 5000P Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
• Intel® 5000V Memory Controller Hub (MCH)
• Intel® 6321ESB I/O Controller Hub
• Intel® 6700PXH 64-bit PCI Hub
The Intel 5000P MCH specifically supports performance and volume server applications. The Intel 5000V MCH enables value-oriented dual-processor platforms.
Dual independent buses at 1066 and 1333 MHz enable unprecedented performance for Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5000 series, creating powerful and responsive server platforms.
The Intel 5000P and 5000V memory controller hubs provide dual independent buses at 1066 and 1333 MHz to support two Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors 5000 series for superior performance in a DP server platform. The two buses deliver an aggregated throughput of up to 17 GB/second for 1066 MHz and up to 21 GB/sec for 1333 MHz. With an independent bus for each processor, next generation Intel® platforms can deliver higher throughput for intensive computing workloads, compared to the previous-generation platforms based on the 64-bit Intel® Xeon® processor 3.60 GHz and Intel® 7520 chipset.
With the Intel 5000P or Intel 5000V chipset and Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5000 series, system designers can offer new platforms that help IT services move ahead with increased productivity, higher throughput, and faster time-to-solution.
