Intel® E7205 Chipset

Intel® E7205 chipset

The Intel® E7205 chipset represents the next step in entry workstation chipset technology for the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The Intel® E7205 chipset design provides a compelling transition to next-generation, workstation-class technologies by delivering support for Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology along with maximized system bus, memory, and graphics bandwidth.

Features that Maximize Performance and Balance the Platform

  • Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 512KB L2 cache and a 533 MHz system bus provides up to 4.3 GB/s of bandwidth between the processor and the chipset.
  • Dual DDR266 memory channels provide up to 4.3 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which exactly matches the system bus bandwidth.
  • The direct-attach AGP 8X port provides 2.1 GB/s of graphics bandwidth directly out of the Memory Controller Hub (MCH).
  • The ICH4 provides advanced features, including high-speed USB 2.0.
