1P Intel Server Boards

DailyTech previously reported Intel was readying LGA775 based Xeon processors for single processor servers and workstations. The Xeon 3000 series of processors were expected to mate up with Intel’s upcoming Mukilteo 2 3000 and Mukilteo 2P 3010 chipsets. Intel’s latest Q3 2006 product matrix brochure unveils details of upcoming Intel server boards based on the Intel 3000 server chipset.

Three Intel 3000 based server boards will be available—S3000AHLX, S3000AHLC and S3000AHV. Intel Server Boards S3000AHLX and S3000AH will support one dual-core Intel Xeon 3000 series, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Pentium 4 or Celeron D processor. Intel Server Boards S3000AHLX features one PCI Express x1, one PCI-X 64-bit/133 MHz, two PCI 32-bit/33 MHz and one Intel Adaptive Slot. The Intel adaptive slot supports one PCI Express x8 or one PCI-X 64-bit/133 MHz slot while the Intel Server Boards S3000AH features one PCI Express x8, one PCI Express x4, one PCI Express x1 and two PCI 32-bit/33 MHz slots.

Intel Server Boards S3000AHV is slightly different from the other two. Processor support is limited to one Intel Xeon 3000 series, Pentium D, Pentium 4 or Celeron D processor. There’s no support for Pentium Extreme Edition processors with the Intel Server Board S3000AHV.

All three boards are compatible with Xeon processors using a 1066/800 MHz front-side bus. Dual-channel DDR2-533/667 unbuffered ECC and non-ECC memory modules are supported. A maximum memory size of 8GB is supported across four DIMM slots. Other notable features include one PATA, four SATAII with RAID 0, 1 and 10 and Gigabit Ethernet. The Intel Server Boards S3000AHLX and S3000AHLC have two Intel Gigabit Ethernet ports while the S3000AHV only has one. Integrated ATI graphics with 16MB of video memory is also standard on all three boards.

Strangely the upcoming Intel 3000 based server boards do not support previously released Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe processors. Nevertheless Xeon 3000 series processors will be priced competitively with Core 2 Duo processors.

RE: Where's the SCSI?

Even 15 SCSI is not relaly that much faster for enterprise apps. The SCSI interface only shines when you have over 8 drives or when IO to the drives are very high. SO basicely large data stores with larege number of user or application reads. Mail and Database is the primary reason you would need it. For just simple file shares SATA preformance is very close for only 1/10 the money.
