1P Intel Server Boards
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
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.

Intel mainboard + integrated ATI graphics. I guess that Intel+ATI relationship is drawing to a close... and this mainboard will have one produciton cycle before being replaced with an intel graphics chipset.

actually that is probably not true. ATI seems to have the server/workstation _integrated_ graphics cornered. I have not seen a server board from anyone that did not have an ATI Rage based graphics chip in it as the integrated graphics. It seems to be the defacto standard for 2D server use. Also, the drivers for something like that are around everywhere, simple, and stable as hell. Pretty much exactly what they need. Intel's solutions don't have this type of long term industry support, nore do nvidia's.
