Intel® Xeon® Processor 3500 Series Datasheet, Vol. 1
The Intel® Xeon® Processor 3500 Series are intended for Uni-processor (UP) and workstation systems. Several architectural and microarchitectural enhancements have been added to this processor including four processor cores in the processor package and increased shared cache.
The Intel Xeon Processor 3500 Series is the first multi-core processor to implement key new technologies:
• Integrated memory controller
• Point-to-point link interface based on Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (Intel® QPI)
In this document the Intel Xeon Processor 3500 Series will be referred to as “the processor.”
The processor is optimized for performance with the power efficiencies of a low-power microarchitecture.
This document provides DC electrical specifications, differential signaling specifications, pinout and signal definitions, package mechanical specifications and thermal requirements, and additional features pertinent to the implementation and operation of the processor. For information on register descriptions, refer to the Intel® Xeon® Processor 3500 Series Datasheet, Volume 2.
The processor is a multi-core processor built on the 45 nm process technology, that uses up to 130 W thermal design power (TDP). The processor features an Intel QPI point-to-point link capable of up to 6.4 GT/s, 8 MB Level 3 cache, and an integrated memory controller.
The processor supports all the existing Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2), Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) and Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4). The processor supports several Advanced Technologies: Intel® 64 Technology (Intel® 64), Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology.
