The Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series is the first-generation server/workstation multi-core processor to implement key new technologies:
• Integrated Memory Controller
• Point-to-point link interface based on Intel® QuickPath Technology
The processor is optimized for performance with the power efficiencies of a low-power microarchitecture to enable smaller, quieter systems.
Th...is document provides DC electrical specifications, differential signaling specifications, pinout and signal definitions, package mechanical specifications and thermal requirements, and additional features pertinent to implementation and operation of the processor. For information on register descriptions, refer to the Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series Datasheet, Volume 2Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series are multi-core processors, based on 45 nm process technology. The processor family features a range of thermal design power (TDP) envelopes from 38W TDP up to 130W TDP. These processors feature two Intel QuickPath Interconnect point-to-point links capable of up to 6.4 GT/s, up to 8 MB of shared cache, and an Integrated Memory Controller. The processors support all the existing Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2), Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSE3) and Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4). The processors support several Advanced Technologies: Execute Disable Bit, Intel® 64 Technology, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology), and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology.
