Intel® 5000V Chipset

Intel® 5000V Chipset

The Intel® 5000V chipsets for the Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 series enable 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.

The dual-core processor servers offer increased value to enterprise front-end, small to medium business (SMB), and high performance computing (HPC) applications.


Features and benefits
Supports two Intel® Xeon® processors 5000 series Optimized performance for the DP Server market segment with a range of price points.
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 8.5 GB/s for 533 MHz and 10.5 GB/s for 667 MHz.

Increased dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) per system provide enhanced memory scalability for memory-intensive applications.
PCI Express* I/O Serial I/O technology provides a direct connection between the MCH chipset and PCI Express* component/adapters with bandwidth up to 4 GB/s on each PCI Express x8 interface. PCI Express offers higher bandwidth, lower latency and fewer I/O bottlenecks than PCI-X.

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) hooks into the Intel® 5000V MCH chipset for remote management operation and support for a variety of third-party base management controller (BMC) and BIOS solutions.

Product and Performance Information


1. The 1333 MHz system bus feature will be available in the second half of 2006.

2. Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

3. PCI Express* reduced power-state "L0s" is not supported.

4. In an x4 DDR memory device, the Intel® x4 Single Device Data Correction (x4 SDDC) provides error detection and correction for 1, 2, 3 or 4 data bits within that single device and provides error detection, up to 8 data bits, within two devices.
