The Intel® 5400 Chipset is bandwidth-enhanced for dual socket high performance applications. It provides support for faster processor, bus, and I/O speeds to enhance performance in demanding technical computing environments.
The Intel® 5400 Chipset improves data movement across Intel® Xeon® processor 5400 and Intel® Xeon® processor 5200 series-based systems by increasing interconnect bandwidth, optimizing system bandwidth, increasing memory capacity, and improving network traffic processing while reducing I/O latency. These platform advancements help to match the improved performance provided by the Intel® Xeon® processor 5400 series.
|Features and benefits|
|Dual Independent Bus||
The Dual Independent Bus provides independent point-to-point interconnects between each of the processors and the chipset.
Speeds up to 1600 MT/s
|FB DIMM 533/667/800 MHz Memory Interface||Increased dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs) per system provide enhanced memory scalability for memory-intensive applications.|
|PCI Express* Gen 2 I/O||Serial I/O technology provides a direct connection between the MCH chipset and PCI Express* component/adapters with bandwidth up to 48 GB/s on each PCI Express gen 2 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 supports PCI/PCI-X performance and provides 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.|
|Enhanced Intel® Virtualization Technology||
Enhancements to Intel Virtualization Technology performance that further speeds up virtual machine transition (entry/exit) times by an average of 25 to 75 percent.
Supports hardware assist for I/O virtualization using Intel Virtualization Technology for directed I/O.
