Intel® 5000P Chipset

Intel® 5000P Chipset

The Intel® 5000P server chipsets for the Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series enables Intel® dual-processor (DP) balanced server platforms that are efficient, dependable, and responsive.

Intel® dual-core processor-based platforms help businesses better utilize assets with effective virtualization and increase density in their data centers through optimized power and thermal features.

With the Intel® 5000P or Intel® 5000V chipset and Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series, system designers can offer new platforms that help IT services move ahead with increased productivity, higher throughput, and faster time-to-solution.

The Intel® 5000P chipset also offers increased graphics performance, reduced power consumption, and improved platform reliability and system manageability.

Features and benefits
Supports two Intel® Xeon® processors 5000 series Optimized performance for intensive computing demands of enterprise and small to medium business servers, plus high performance computing (HPC) applications.
1066 / 1333 MHz dual independent buses Increased bus bandwidth of up to 3X over 800 MHz systems.
FB DIMM 533/667 MHz memory interface Offers a maximum memory bandwidth up to 17 GB/s for 533 MHz and 21 GB/s for 667 MHz.

Increased dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) per system, providing enhanced memory scalability for memory-intensive applications.

Up to 64 GB memory capacity.

PCI Express* I/O Serial I/O technology provides a direct connection between the MCH and PCI Express components/adapters, with bandwidth up to 4 GB/s on each PCI Express x8 interface.
Intel® 6700PXH 64-bit PCI Hub

Optional component introduces next-generation PCI/PCI-X performance and significant enhancements to platform flexibility.

Supports two independent 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X segments and two Hot-Plug controllers (one per segment).

Advanced platform reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS)

Features such as memory Error Correction Code (ECC), Intel® x4 Single Device Data Correction (x4 SDDC), DIMM sparing and DIMM scrubbing for improved system reliability.

The System Management Bus (SMBus) port hooks into the Intel® 5000P MCH chipset for remote management operation and support for a variety of third-party base management controller (BMC) and BIOS solutions.
