Intel® E7501 Chipset

The second in a family of volume server chipsets, the Intel® E7501 chipset supports dual-processor (DP) server systems optimized for the Intel® Xeon® processor. 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 next-generation server technologies.

Features and benefits
Supports 2 Intel® Xeon® processors with 512 KB L2 cache for dual-processing server systems Delivers a platform that brings Intel NetBurst® microarchitecture and the Hyper-Threading Technology of the Intel® Xeon® processor to deliver best-in-class performance for peak server workloads.
533 MHz system bus capability Supports a high-performance platform by enabling a 4.3 GB/s system bus bandwidth that can support greater memory and I/O bandwidths.
Intel® Hub Architecture 2.0 connection to the MCH This point-to-point connection between the MCH and the 3 Intel® 82870P2 controller hub devices provides greater than 1 GB/s of bandwidth. Error Correction Code (ECC) protection, coupled with high data transfer rates, support I/O segments with greater reliability and faster access to high-speed networks.
Intel® 82870P2 controller hub Introduces next-generation PCI/PCI-X performance and significantly enhances platform flexibility. Two independent 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X segments and 2 hot-plug controllers (1 per segment) for each Intel 82870P2 controller hub device allow up to 6 PCI-X buses per system.
Dual-channel DDR-266 memory interface Offers a maximum memory bandwidth of 4.3 GB/s through a 144-bit wide, 266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM memory interface with densities up to 512 megabits.
Advanced platform RASUM Provides a more reliable platform with features such as memory Error Correction Code (ECC) with Intel® x4 Single Device Data Correction1, hardware memory scrubbing, MCH SMBus target interface, hub interface ECC, and the availability of enhanced error status information maintained through reset.
