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 the SKU is typically available for purchase for 7 years from the launch of the first SKU in the Product family and may be available for purchase for a longer period of time under certain circumstances. Intel does not commit or guarantee product Availability or Technical Support by way of roadmap guidance. Intel reserves the right to change roadmaps or discontinue products, software and software support services through standard EOL/PDN processes. Product certification and use condition information can be found in the Production Release Qualification (PRQ) report for this SKU. Contact 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).

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.
