Abit pronta per le consegne di schede madri dual Xeon
Abit annuncia, con la seguente press release ufficiale, l'inizio delle consegne di schede madri SI-SP+ per server, basate sul chipset Intel E7501 per l'utilizzo con processori Intel Xeon in modalità dual processor.
"With Intel officially launching its latest E7501 chipset for dual Intel Xeon processors, ABIT also has its Intel E7501-based SI-2P+ server board ready for shipment. Supporting 533MHz front side bus and a DDR266 memory interface, this newly introduced IntelÒ E7501 chipset features higher system and memory bus bandwidth that supports up to 4.3GB per second peak data transfer rates. This represents a 25% increase in bandwidth from what its predecessor offered, greatly improving server performance in dealing with large amounts of data, such as streaming video and database applications.
The SI-2P+ is ABIT’s latest Intel Xeon-based server board for performance dual-processor server systems. It is designed to support two Intel Xeon processors, 12GB ECC memory and four PCI-X expansion slots, in addition with the incorporation of dual-port gigabit Ethernet LAN and a dual-channel Ultra 320 SCSI storage interface. With these advanced features, the SI-2P+ is capable of delivering optimum computing power, I/O subsystem performance and scalability for demanding business applications, Internet infrastructure and departmental database servers.
In addition, accommodating design architecture is another strength of the SI-2P+ motherboard. With the incorporation of a SO-DIMM for Adaptec zero-channel RAID cards and an Agilent Management Connector (AMC) for Agilent’s IPMI compliant server management adaptors, the SI-2P+ offers a cost-effective mechanism for adding advanced reliability and manageability features to server systems. Besides the cost benefit, this design also facilitates fast implementation and quick time to market.
Built with optimal configuration for computing power, I/O performance and RAS-ready design, ABIT’s SI-2P+ provides compelling value and an outstanding feature set to dual-processor server systems."
