Intel's Xeon E5-24xx Server Processors are 64-bit, multi-core enterprise processors built on 32-nanometer process technology. Based on the low-power/high performance 2nd Generation Intel Core microarchitecture, the processor is designed for a two chip platform consisting of a processor and a Platform Controller Hub (PCH) enabling higher performance, easier validation, and improved x-y footprint. The E5-24xx Processors are is designed for server-class platforms including those for embedded and storage applications with up to two processor sockets. The processor family features one Intel QuickPath Interconnect (Intel® QPI) point-to-point link capable of up to 8.0GT/s, up to 24 lanes of PCI Express 3.0 links capable of 8.0GT/s, and 4 lanes of DMI2/PCI Express 2.0 interface with a peak transfer rate of 5.0GT/s. The processor supports up to 46 bits of physical address space and 48-bit of virtual address space.
