Intel® Xeon® Processor C5500/C3500, 3420 Chipset: Block Diagram
This block diagram provides a description of the functions, capabilities, and connectivity within the Intel® processor platform shown. The integration of PCI Express* lanes into the processors eliminates the need for a separate I/O hub chip, decreasing chip count and saving on overall system power. The processors offer better performance-per-watt over previous generations and incorporate PCIe* non-transparent bridge, RAID, and DRAM self-refresh features.
