For use with Intel® Xeon® Processors with 512-KB L2 Cache and Intel® Xeon® Processors with 533 MHz System Bus. For designing a single platform compatible with both the Intel® E7500 and E7501 chipsets.

This design guide document is Intel's design recommendations for systems based on the Intel® Xeon® processor with 512-KB L2 cache, Intel® Xeon® processor with 533 MHz system bus and the Intel® E7500/E7501 chipset. This guide is intended for Intel E7500/E7501 chipset compatible platforms. All new Intel E7500 chipset platforms should use this document. Existing Intel E7500 chipset-only designs may still conform to the Intel® Xeon® Processor with 512-KB L2 Cache and Intel® E7500 Chipset Platform Design Guide. In addition to providing motherboard design recommendations (e.g., layout and routing guidelines), this document addresses system design issues (e.g., power delivery).
