Launch Date

The date the product was first introduced.

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.

Memory Types

Intel® processors come in four different types: a Single Channel, Dual Channel, Triple Channel, and Flex Mode.

Max # of Memory Channels

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

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.

Graphics Output

Graphics Output defines the interfaces available to communicate with display devices.

PCI Support

PCI support indicates the type of support for the Peripheral Component Interconnect standard

PCIe x16 Gen 3

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 x1 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 x4 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 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 x1 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).

PCIe x4 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).

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).

PCIe x16 Gen 1.x

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 PATA Ports

PATA (Parallel ATA) is an interface standard for connection of storage devices in systems, predating SATA.

# of Parallel Ports

A Parallel port is a computer interface used for connecting peripherals, most often printers.

# of Serial Ports

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

Integrated LAN

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

Firewire

Firewire is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communication.

TPM

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a component on the desktop board that is specifically designed to enhance platform security above-and-beyond the capabilities of today's software by providing a protected space for key operations and other security critical tasks. Using both hardware and software, the TPM protects encryption and signature keys at their most vulnerable stages - operations when the keys are being used unencrypted in plain-text form.

Intel® Matrix Storage Technology

Intel® Matrix Storage Technology provides protection, performance, and expandability for desktop and mobile platforms. Whether using one or multiple hard drives, users can take advantage of enhanced performance and lower power consumption. When using more than one drive the user can have additional protection against data loss in the event of hard drive failure. Predecessor to Intel® Rapid Storage Technology
