Compare Intel® Products
The date the product was first introduced.
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.
QPI (Quick Path Interconnect) links are a high speed, point-to-point interconnect bus between the processor and chipset.
FSB (Front Side Bus) is the interconnect between the processor and the Memory Controller Hub (MCH).
FSB parity provides error checking on data sent on the FSB (Front Side Bus).
Lithography refers to the semiconductor technology used to manufacture an integrated circuit, and is reported in nanometer (nm), indicative of the size of features built on the semiconductor.
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 refers to the maximum memory capacity supported by the processor.
Intel® processors come in four different types: a Single Channel, Dual Channel, Triple Channel, and Flex Mode.
Physical Address Extensions (PAE) is a feature that allows 32-bit processors to access a physical address space larger than 4 gigabytes.
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 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.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) is an industry standard connection technology for attaching peripheral devices to a computer.
A Serial Port is a computer interface used for connecting peripherals.
Integrated LAN indicates the presence of an integrated Intel Ethernet MAC or presence of the LAN ports built into the system board.
Firewire is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communication.
Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) are a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, for example: applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption.
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology for safer computing is a versatile set of hardware extensions to Intel® processors and chipsets that enhance the digital office platform with security capabilities such as measured launch and protected execution. It enables an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system.
Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) helps keep your laptop safe and secure in the event that it’s ever lost or stolen. Intel® AT requires a service subscription from an Intel® AT–enabled service provider.
