Intel announces new server components on Intel Xeon 533MHz FSB

Intel announced 10 new server components, including 5 motherboards, 2 server cases, and 3 RAID controllers, designed for OEM makers and server builders that assemble systems on recently announced Intel Xeon with 533MHz FSB and Intel E7501/E7505 chipsets.

The dual-CPU motherboards for Intel Xeon with 533MHz FSB — SE7501WV2, SE7501HG2, SE7501BR2, SE7501CW2 represent the complete gamma of Intel 7501-based products; Intel SE7505VB2 bases on Intel E7505 and can be also used in workstations.

SE7501WV2 is designed for Intel SR1300 1U case or Intel SR2300 2U case. Its optimized for high-density appliances like computing or multimedia streaming systems. SE7501HG2, combined with Intel SC5200 case, makes the server platform for DBMS infrastructure or department-scale apps. It can be used in a standalone or rackmount (5U) case.

SE7501BR2 is also designed for the Intel SC5200 case or for the new Intel SC5250-E solution and represents the mainstream server platform for e-business and workgroups.

All new platforms feature the Ultra320 SCSI interface, support RAID 0/1, Intel Server Management 5.5 software and Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit network solutions.

Intel SE7505VB2, also designed for Intel SC5250-E case, is the universal server and workstation dual-processor platform with built-in Serial ATA and AGP 8X. Finally, SE7501CW2 is aimed at the inexpensive servers segment.

The new Intel SC5250-E case is an inexpensive tower for small business servers and workstations.

Besides, as you remember Intel released three new RAID controllers for data storage systems: Intel SRCU42L, Intel SRCS14L and Intel SRCZCR. Supporting Ultra320 SCSI and Serial ATA, they are based on Intel 80303 I/O processor.

Intel has also reported about the modernization of SRSH4 and SPSH4 server platforms to support up to 2GHz Intel Xeon MP with 2Mb cache.
