Intel V8 Eight-Core Platform Preview - Intel V8 Eight-Core Platform Preview
Mon, May 21 2007 | 5:05AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Two quad-core Intel Xeon X5365 processors running at 3.0GHz, Intel Workstation Board S5000XVN mainboard on i5000X chipset – can a system like that win enthusiasts’ hearts? Intel believes it surely can, positioning this platform as a direct competitor of the upcoming AMD Quad FX reincarnation – FASN8. Read our extensive preview to find out the details!

"The key distinguishing feature of the i5000X core logic set from its predecessors is the two independent processor busses with point-to-point topology in this dual-processor system. In other words, this chipset eliminates the major bottleneck of all previous generation multi-processor systems built on Intel Xeon CPUs that were sitting on the same shared bus. This innovation increased the total theoretical processor bus bandwidth in i5000X based systems to 17GB/s for CPUs with 1066MHz bus and to 21GB/s for CPUs supporting 1333MHz bus.
Moreover, i5000X boasts another powerful tool improving the communication efficiency between the CPUs and the system memory. It features a special buffer also known as Snoop Filter that contains info on the location and acuteness of all data used by the CPUs. Since MESI protocol used to ensure caches coherency in multi-processor Xeon based systems requires each of the CPUs to keep an eye on the other processor’s bus, the use of Snoop Filter helps reduce parasitical traffic on the processor busses significantly."
