Intel E8501 Chipset eXternal Memory Bridge (XMB) Datasheet
Revision 2.0, April 2006. The Intel® E8501 chipset is a 4-way server chipset offering world class performance. The chipset is built architecturally around the Intel® E8501 chipset North Bridge (NB) and the eXternal Memory Bridge (XMB). This document, the Intel® E8501 Chipset eXternal Memory Bridge (XMB) Datasheet, describes the features, modes and registers supported by the XMB component only. Additional details on the Intel® E8501 chipset North Bridge (NB) are provided in a separate document, the Intel® E8501 Chipset eXternal Memory Bridge (XMB) Datasheet. Contact an Intel Field representative for Intel® E8500/E8501 chipset platform design information. For details on any other platform component, please refer to the component’s respective documentation. This chapter is an introduction to the entire Intel E8501 chipset platform Intel® E8501 Chipset North Bridge (NB) Feature List The Intel E8501 chipset North Bridge (NB) is the center of the Intel E8501 chipset architecture (refer to Figure 1-1). The NB provides the interconnect to: • 64-bit Intel® Xeon® processor MP via two 667 or 800 MT/s system busses optimized for server applications • XMBs via four Independent Memory Interfaces (IMI) • I/O components via one x4 and three x8 PCI Express* links and ICH5 via the HI 1.5>Read the full Intel E8501 Chipset eXternal Memory Bridge Datasheet.
