Intel® E7501 Chipset Product Brief
There is a Chipset for Dual-Processor Server Platforms that Maximizes System Bus, Memory, and I/O Bandwidth
The Intel® E7501 chipset represents the next step in Intel®-based server chipset technology and combines with the Intel® Xeon™ processor with 533 MHz system bus for greater performance.
The Intel® E7501 chipset represents the next step in Intel®-based server chipset technology. The second in a family of volume server chipsets, the Intel E7501 chipset supports dual-processor server platforms optimized for the Intel® Xeon™ processor with 533 MHz system bus and Intel® NetBurst™ microarchitecture. The Intel E7501 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 E7501 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 Intel E7501 Memory Controller Hub (MCH) is the central hub for all data passing through core system elements such as the dual Intel Xeon processor via the system bus interface, the Double Data Rate (DDR) memory via the memory interface, and both the 64-bit PCI/PCI-X and I/O controller hubs via Intel hub interfaces. The Intel E7501 chipset delivers compelling performance at 4.3 GB/s of bandwidth across the 533 MHz system bus and up to 4.3 GB/s of bandwidth across two high-performance DDR SDRAM memory channels. The MCH also allows several high-bandwidth I/O configuration options for a total of 3.2 GB/s of I/O bandwidth. Together, these features deliver high throughput system performance for dual-processor server platforms.
