Technical Documentation

Launch Date

The date the product was first introduced.

Expected Discontinuance

Expected Discontinuance is an estimate of when a product will begin the Product Discontinuance process. The Product Discontinuance Notification (PDN), published at the start of the discontinuance process, will include all EOL Key Milestone details. Some business units may communicate EOL timeline details before the PDN is published. Contact your Intel representative for information on EOL timelines and extended life options.

# of QPI Links

QPI (Quick Path Interconnect) links are a high speed, point-to-point interconnect bus between the processor and chipset.

Integrated BMC with IPMI

IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) is a standardized interface used for out-of-band management of computer systems. The integrated BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) is a specialized microcontroller that enables IPMI.

TDP

Thermal Design Power (TDP) represents the average power, in watts, the processor dissipates when operating at Base Frequency with all cores active under an Intel-defined, high-complexity workload. Refer to Datasheet for thermal solution requirements.

Embedded Options Available

Embedded Options Available indicates products that offer extended purchase availability for intelligent systems and embedded solutions. Product certification and use condition applications can be found in the Production Release Qualification (PRQ) report. See your Intel representative for details.

Max Memory Size (dependent on memory type)

Max memory size refers to the maximum memory capacity supported by the processor.

Memory Types

Intel® processors come in four different types: Single Channel, Dual Channel, Triple Channel, and Flex Mode. Maximum supported memory speed may be lower when populating multiple DIMMs per channel on products that support multiple memory channels.

Max # of Memory Channels

The number of memory channels refers to the bandwidth operation for real world application.

Max Memory Bandwidth

Max Memory bandwidth is the maximum rate at which data can be read from or stored into a semiconductor memory by the processor (in GB/s).

Max # of DIMMs

DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) is a series of DRAM (Dynamic Random-Access Memory) IC's mounted on a small printed circuit board.

ECC Memory Supported

ECC Memory Supported indicates processor support for Error-Correcting Code memory. ECC memory is a type of system memory that can detect and correct common kinds of internal data corruption. Note that ECC memory support requires both processor and chipset support.

Integrated Graphics

Integrated graphics allow for incredible visual quality, faster graphic performance and flexible display options without the need for a separate graphics card.

Max # of PCI Express Lanes

A PCI Express (PCIe) lane consists of two differential signaling pairs, one for receiving data, one for transmitting data, and is the basic unit of the PCIe bus. Max # of PCI Express Lanes is the total number of supported lanes.

PCIe x8 Gen 2.x

PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) is a high speed serial computer expansion bus standard for attaching hardware devices to a computer. This field indicates the number of PCIe sockets for the given lane configuration (x8, x16) and PCIe generation (1.x, 2.x).

PCIe x16 Gen 2.x

PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) is a high speed serial computer expansion bus standard for attaching hardware devices to a computer. This field indicates the number of PCIe sockets for the given lane configuration (x8, x16) and PCIe generation (1.x, 2.x).

PCIe x8 Gen 1.x

PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) is a high speed serial computer expansion bus standard for attaching hardware devices to a computer. This field indicates the number of PCIe sockets for the given lane configuration (x8, x16) and PCIe generation (1.x, 2.x).

USB Revision

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard connection technology for attaching peripheral devices to a computer.

Total # of SATA Ports

SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) is a high speed standard for connecting storage devices such as hard disk drives and optical drives to a motherboard.

RAID Configuration

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a single logical unit, and distributes data across the array defined by RAID levels, indicative of the level of redundancy and performance required.

# of Serial Ports

A Serial Port is a computer interface used for connecting peripherals.

# of LAN Ports

LAN (Local Area Network) is a computer network, typically Ethernet, that interconnects computers over a limited geographical area such as a single building.

Integrated LAN

Integrated LAN indicates the presence of an integrated Intel Ethernet MAC or presence of the LAN ports built into the system board.

Integrated SAS Ports

Integrated SAS indicates Serial Attached SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) support integrated into the board. SAS is a high speed standard for connecting storage devices such as hard disk drives and optical drives to a motherboard.

Intel® Remote Management Module Support

The Intel® Remote Management Module (Intel® RMM) allows you to securely gain access and control servers and other devices from any machine on the network. Remote access includes remote management capability, including power control, KVM, and media redirection, with a dedicated management network interface card (NIC).

Intel® Node Manager

Intel® Intelligent Power Node Manager is a platform resident technology that enforces power and thermal policies for the platform. It enables data center power and thermal management by exposing an external interface to management software through which platform policies can be specified. It also enables specific data center power management usage models such as power limiting.

Intel® Advanced Management Technology

Intel® Advanced Management Technology features an isolated, independent, secure, and highly reliable network connection, with an Integrated Baseboard Management Controller (Integrated BMC) configuration from within BIOS. Also includes an embedded web user interface that launches key platform diagnostic capabilities over the network, an out-of-band (OOB) platform inventory, failsafe firmware updates, and an automatic Integrated BMC stall detection and reset.

Intel® Server Customization Technology

Intel® Server Customization technology enables Resellers and System Builders to offer end customers a customized branded experience, SKU configuration flexibility, flexible boot options, and maximum I/O options.

Intel® Build Assurance Technology

Intel® Build Assurance technology provides advanced diagnostic features ensuring the most comprehensively tested, most thoroughly debugged, and most stable systems possible are shipped to customers.

Intel® Efficient Power Technology

Intel® Efficient Power Technology is a series of improvements within Intel power supplies and voltage regulators to increase power delivery efficiency and reliability. The technology is included in all common redundant power supplies (CRPS). CRPS includes the following technologies; 80 PLUS Platinum (92% efficient at 50% load) efficiency, cold redundancy, closed loop system protection, smart ride through, dynamic redundancy detection, black box recorder, compatibility bus, and auto firmware updates to provide more efficient power delivery to the system.

Intel® Quiet Thermal Technology

Intel® Quiet Thermal Technology is a series of thermal and acoustic management innovations that reduce unnecessary acoustic noise and provide cooling flexibility while maximizing efficiency . The technology includes capabilities such as advanced thermal sensory arrays, advanced cooling algorithms, and built in fail-safe shutdown protection.
