Functional Architecture

Intel® Server Board S5000PAL / S5000XAL TPS

3.Functional Architecture

The architecture and design of the Intel® Server Board S5000PAL / S5000XAL is based on the Intel® 5000 Chipset Family. The chipset is designed for systems based on the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5000 sequence with system bus speeds of 667 MHz, 1066 MHz, and 1333 MHz. The chipset is made up of two main components: the Memory Controller Hub (MCH) for the host bridge and the ESB- 2 I/O controller hub for the I/O subsystem. This chapter provides a high-level description of the functionality associated with each chipset component and the architectural blocks that make up this server board. For more in depth detail of the functionality for each of the chipset components and each of the functional architecture blocks, see the Intel® S5000 Server Board Family Datasheet.

Figure 9. Server Board Functional Block Diagram

Note: The diagram above uses the Intel® 5000P MCH as a general reference designator for both MCH components supported on this server board.

Functional Architecture

3.1Intel® 5000P and 5000X Memory Controller Hubs (MCH)

This section will describe the general functionality of the memory controller hub as it is implemented on this server board. Depending on the version of the server board in use, it may support either the Intel® 5000P MCH or the Intel® 5000X MCH. Features that are unique to a particular MCH will be so referenced.

The Memory Controller Hub (MCH) is a single 1432 pin FCBGA package which includes the following core platform functions:

System Bus Interface for the processor sub-system

Memory Controller

PCI Express* Ports including the Enterprise South Bridge Interface (ESI)

FBD Thermal Management

SMBUS Interface

Additional information about MCH functionality can be obtained from the Intel® S5000 Series Chipsets Server Board Family Datasheet, the Intel® 5000P Memory Controller Hub External Design Specification (Yellow Cover), or the Intel® 5000X Memory Controller Hub External Design Specification (Yellow Cover).

Note: Yellow Cover documents can only be obtained under NDA with Intel and ordered through an Intel representative.

3.1.1System Bus Interface

The MCH is configured for symmetric multi-processing across two independent front side bus interfaces that connect to the Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processors 5000 sequence. Each front side bus on the MCH uses a 64-bit wide 1066 or 1333 MHz data bus. The 1333 MHz data bus is capable of transferring data at up to 10.66 GB/s. The MCH supports a 36-bit wide address bus, capable of addressing up to 64 GB of memory. The MCH is the priority agent for both front side bus interfaces, and is optimized for one processor on each bus.

3.1.2Processor Support

The server board supports one or two Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processors 5000 sequence, with system bus speeds of 667 MHz, 1066 MHz, and1333 MHz, and core frequencies starting at 2.67 GHz. Previous generations of the Intel® Xeon® processor are not supported on this server board.

Note: Only Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processors 5000 sequence, that support system bus speeds of 667 MHz, 1066 MHz, and1333 MHz are supported on this server board. See the following table for a list of supported processors.

3.1.2.1Processor Population Rules

When two processors are installed, both must be of identical revision, core voltage, and bus/core speed. Mixed processor steppings is supported. However, the stepping of one processor cannot be greater than one stepping back of the other. When only one processor is installed, it must be in the socket labeled CPU1. The other socket must be empty.

The board is designed to provide up to 130A of current per processor. Processors with higher current requirements are not supported.

No terminator is required in the second processor socket when using a single processor configuration.

3.1.2.2Common Enabling Kit (CEK) Design Support

The server board complies with Intel’s Common Enabling Kit (CEK) processor mounting and heat sink retention solution. The server board ships with a CEK spring snapped onto the underside of the server board, beneath each processor socket. The heat sink attaches to the CEK, over the top of the processor and the thermal interface material (TIM). See the figure below for the stacking order of the chassis, CEK spring, server board, TIM, and heat sink.

The CEK spring is removable, allowing for the use of non-Intel heat sink retention solutions.

Note: The processor heat sink and CEK spring shown in the following diagram are for reference purposes only. The actual processor heat sink and CEK solutions compatible with this generation server board may be of a different design.

3.1.3Memory Sub-system

On the Intel® Server Board S5000PAL / S5000XAL, the MCH provides four channels of Fully Buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) memory. Each channel can support up to 2 Dual Ranked FB-DIMM DDR2 DIMMs. FBDIMM memory channels are organized in to two branches for support of RAID 1 (mirroring). The MCH can support up to 8 DIMMs or a maximum memory size of 32 GB physical memory in non-mirrored mode and 16 GB physical memory in a mirrored configuration. The read bandwidth for each FB-DIMM channel is 4.25 GB/s for DDR2 533 FB-DIMM memory which gives a total read bandwidth of 17 GB/s for four FBDIMM channels. Thus, this provides 8.5 GB/s of write memory bandwidth for four FB-DIMM channels. The read bandwidth for each FB-DIMM channel is 5.3GB/s for DDR2 667 FB-DIMM memory which gives a total read bandwidth of 21GB/s for four FB-DIMM channels. Thus, this provides 10.7 GB/s of write memory bandwidth for four FB-DIMM channels. The total bandwidth is based on read bandwidth thus the total bandwidth is 17 GB/s for 533 and 21.0 GB/s for 667.

On the Intel® Server Board S5000PAL / S5000XAL, a pair of channels becomes a branch where Branch 0 consists of channels A and B, and Branch 1 consists of channels C and D. FBD memory channels are organized into two branches for support of RAID 1(mirroring).

3.1.3.3DIMM Population Rules and Supported DIMM Configurations

DIMM population rules depend on the operating mode of the memory controller, which is determined by the number of DIMMs installed. DIMMs must be populated in pairs. DIMM pairs are populated in the following DIMM slot order: A1 & B1, C1 & D1, A2 & B2, C2 & D2. DIMMs within a given pair must be identical with respect to size, speed, and organization. However, DIMM capacities can be different between different DIMM pairs.

For example, a valid mixed DIMM configuration may have 512MB DIMMs installed in DIMM Slots A1 & B1, and 1GB DIMMs installed in DIMM slots C1 & D1.

Intel supported DIMM configurations for this server board are shown in the following table.

Supported and Validated configuration : Slot is populated

Supported but not validated configuration : Slot is populated

Slot is not populated

Mirroring: Y = Yes. Indicates that configuration supports Memory Mirroring. Sparing: Y(x) = Yes. Indicates that configuration supports Memory Sparing.

Where x = 0 : Sparing supported on Branch0 only 1 : Sparing supported on Branch1 only

Notes:

-Single channel mode is only tested and supported with a 512MB x8 FBDIMM installed in DIMM Slot A1.

-The supported memory configurations must meet population rules defined above.

-For best performance, the number of DIMMs installed should be balanced across both memory branches. For Example: a four DIMM configuration will perform better than a two DIMM configuration and should be installed in DIMM Slots A1, B1, C1, and D1. An eight DIMM configuration will perform better then a six DIMM configuration.

-Although mixed DIMM capacities between channels is supported, Intel does not validate DIMMs in mixed DIMM configurations.

3.1.3.3.1Minimum Non-Mirrored Mode Configuration

The server board is capable of supporting a minimum of one DIMM installed. However, for system performance reasons, Intel’s recommendation is that at least 2 DIMMs be installed.
