Intel® 875P Chipset for Entry-Level Workstation Platforms
The Intel® 875P chipset represents the next step in entry
workstation chipset technology for the Intel® Pentium® 4
Processor. The 875P chipset design provides a
compelling transition to next-generation workstation-class
technologies by delivering support for Hyper-Threading
Technology along with maximized system bus, memory,
and graphics bandwidth.

Advanced Technology and Next-Generation Graphics
The 875P chipset for entry-level workstations is the first
Intel chipset to support Intel® Performance Acceleration
Technology (PAT). Featuring an 800 MHz system bus (FSB)
and Hyper-Threading Technology, this technology uses
Intel’s advanced manufacturing processes and testing
equipment to deliver a chipset that unleashes the full
power of the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. In addition, the
875P chipset supports dual-channel DDR400 memory
configurations to realize the exceptional performance from
the memory interface. It is optimized for the Intel Pentium 4
processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, adding
intelligence to help manage and prioritize multiple threads
received by the microprocessor.

The 875P chipset also integrates Intel’s Communication
Streaming Architecture (CSA) featuring a dedicated
networking bus interface, Hi-Speed USB 2.0, Serial ATA and
enhanced AC’97 audio implementation for improved sound
quality. The 875P chipset helps to ensure that tomorrow’s
most demanding applications will run best on Pentium 4
processor-based entry-level workstation platforms.
Intel continues to offer next-generation AGP 8X graphics
technology to increase graphics bandwidth, performance, and
headroom for visually intensive workstation applications.

The Intel 82875P Memory Controller Hub (MCH) supports
800 MHz, and 533 MHz system bus designs; DDR400 or
DDR333 SDRAM; and the latest graphics devices through
the 1.5V AGP 8X interface. Performance Acceleration
Technology delivers additional system level performance by
optimizing memory access between the processor and system
memory on platforms configured with 800 MHz and DDR400.

The 82801EB I/O Controller Hub (ICH5) integrates two
independent Serial ATA controllers providing 150MB/s transfers
each for the most demanding storage data transfers. The
Intel 82801ER I/O Controller Hub (ICH5R) elevates serial ATA
storage performance to the next level with Intel RAID
technology. Additional Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports provide ubiquitous
end-user connections, while offering backwards compatibility
with existing USB 1.1 peripherals. The ICH5 also
supports an integrated LAN management controller supporting
the industry standard Alert Standard Format (ASF) protocol.

Features that Maximize
Performance and Balance the
• Intel Pentium 4 processor with 512KB L2 cache and an
800 MHz system bus provide up to 6.4 GB/s of
bandwidth between the processor and the chipset.
• Intel® Performance Acceleration Technology (PAT)
delivers additional system level performance by
optimizing memory access between the processor and
system memory for 800 MHz and DDR400
based platforms.
• Dual Channel DDR400 memory bus with ECC provides
optimal and balanced performance through matched
processor and memory bus bandwidth while ECC
ensures data reliability and integrity.
• The direct attach AGP 8X port provides 2.1 GB/s of
graphics bandwidth directly out of the MCH.
• Intel RAID technology enables extreme storage
performance for Serial ATA hard disks.
• The Intel 82801 EB I/O Controller Hub (ICH5) provides
advanced features, including Hi-Speed USB 2.0.
