Features and benefits
Supports dual-core processors Provides two execution cores in one physical processor helping increase system responsiveness and performance for multi-tasking.
1066/800 MHz FSB Supports Intel® Pentium® D processor and other Intel Pentium processors in the LGA775 socket, with scalability for future processor innovations.
Supports Hyper-Threading Technology Delivers higher processing throughput and faster response times for multi-tasking, multi-threading workload environments.
Supports Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology Runs 64-bit code and accesses larger amounts of memory while also capable of running existing 32-bit applications.
Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology Enables focused platform and software power management to lower average power consumption while maintaining application performance and improving acoustics.
PCI Express* I/O Interfaces Provides PCI Express I/O x8 port for increased I/O server performance,. Also provides configurable Intel® I/O Controller Hub (ICH7R) 1x4/2x1 PCI Express ports to meet higher I/O server demands. Multiple interfaces eliminates the need for bridge solutions and reduces server bottlenecks.
PCI-X Interface Support legacy PCI-X server adapters using the Intel 6702PXH 64-bit PCI hub.
Memory Support for Dual Channel DDR2 667/533/400 with ECC support Larger memory capacity than previous generation for more demanding and complex applications and provides ECC for data integrity protection.
Integrated Serial ATA* Controller Facilitates high-speed storage and data transfers up to 3 Gb/s supporting latest storage technology with support for up to four independent Serial ATA hard disk drives.
Intel® Matrix Storage Technology Boosts storage performance with RAID 0 while protecting data with RAID 1 on the same disk. RAID 5 and 10 provide both increased data protection and performance.
Intel® Active Management Technology Helps improve IT efficiency by providing remote down-the-wire server management to allow asset management, out of band management, and diagnostics regardless of system state.

Product and Performance Information


1. Requires an Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology)-enabled system, check with your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. Not available on the Intel® Core™ i5-750. For more information, including details on which processors support HT technology, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.

2. Intel® Matrix Storage Technology requires a motherboard with the Intel® 82801IR (ICH9R) I/O Controller Hub System. The system must also have the RAID controller in the BIOS enabled and the Intel Matrix Storage Technology software driver installed. Please consult your system vendor for more information.

3. Requires activation and a system with a corporate network connection, an Intel® AMT-enabled chipset, network hardware, and software. For notebooks, Intel AMT may be unavailable or limited over a host OS-based VPN, when connecting wirelessly, on battery power, sleeping, hibernating, or powered off. Results dependent upon hardware, setup, and configuration. For more information, visit www.intel.com/technology/vpro/index.htm.
