||Leading-edge Technologies in Slim Size Serverboard|
P5M2-M is based on the latest Intel® Xeon® 3000 processor (at FSB1066MHz), Intel® 3000 MCH and Intel® ICH7R chipset, which achieves 102% better performance (SPECjbb2005) and 69% reduction in processor power (65W compared with 110W) than its predecessor to provide immediate dual-processor level performance scale-up.
Rich Expansion Choices in Slim Size Serverboard
There are four expansion slots in this serverboard, including: two PCI 32bit/ 33MHz, one PCI-E x 8 (x 4 link) and one PCI-E x 8 (x 8 link). It is expandable for slim size rack-mount chassis, but also meets most pedestal applications with BMC expansion. For better thermal solution, the DIMM slots are paralleled to the airflow to reduce air block; and CPU is located at the border side to cool down effectively.
Complete RAID Support
4 SATAII ports from ICH7R come with built-in LSI® MegaRAID SATA driver support, providing software RAID 0, 1, 0+1 under Windows and major Linux; users will enjoy reliable and cost-effective data protection.
Professional Network Connection Solution
P5M2-M is equipped with dual server class Broadcom® BCM5721 PCI-E Gb LAN ports, with "teaming" and "failover" function, the network connection will be smoother and faster. With more than 3 years´ market experience, Broadcom® BCM5721 provides reliable & robust support with wide Linux driver support.
