Intel® E8500 Multi-Processing Chipset Product Brief

The Intel® E8500 chipset is the highest performance, most scalable platform offering in the 64-bit Intel® Xeon® processor family. Intel’s sixth-generation, four-way MP platform is architected for Intel® dual-core processors, yet it is also compatible with Intel’s current single-core processors, giving it an enhanced lifespan, and lowering Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In addition, the Intel E8500 chipset offers enhanced performance, increased bandwidth, and greater flexibility, manageability, and I/O integration than Intel’s previous-generation MP chipsets. Plus, it is available in a variety of configurations suitable for a wide range of price points and application environments.

Improve return on investment with smart platform design

The Intel E8500 chipset delivers an extended lifespan, working with both Intel’s current-generation single-core processors as well as future Intel dual-core processors. And the chipset’s ability to support 64-bit, as well as 32-bit applications, lets your customers utilize their investment even further. Intel’s first chipset architected for 4-socket dual-core processors offers dual front-side system buses and faster FSB speeds for outstanding performance under certain workloads. It also offers support for the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MP with up to 8 MB L3 cache. This higher throughput leads to better performance.
