Intel® Q965 Express Chipset for Embedded Computing: Brief

Product Overview
The Intel® Q965 Express Chipset offers features that address key requirements of many embedded computing designs, including memory performance, graphics, manageability, responsiveness, noise reduction, and data protection. When combined with the Intel® Core™2 Duo processors E6400 or E4300, Pentium® Dual-Core processor E2160 or Celeron® processor 440, this impressive platform can help embedded equipment manufacturers deploy more responsive, high-performance, low-power systems for interactive clients (i.e., point-of-sale terminals and ATMs), industrial control and automation, gaming, digital security surveillance, and medical imaging applications.

The Intel Q965 Express chipset consists of an updated Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and I/O Controller Hub (ICH) available in two SKUs: Intel® I/O Controller Hub 8 (Intel® ICH8) and Intel ICH8 DO (digital office). The GMCH includes dual-channel DDR2 800 MHz memory technology—up to 12.8 GB/s of peak memory bandwidth—, Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000, and Intel® Fast Memory Access. Both the Intel ICH8 and Intel ICH8 DO deliver outstanding system performance through high-bandwidth interfaces such as PCI Express*, Serial ATA, and Hi-Speed USB* 2.0 connectivity, while Intel® Quiet System Technology regulates system and processor fan speeds for noise reduction. Additionally, the Intel ICH8 DO features Intel® Matrix Storage Technology with RAID support, and Intel® Active Management Technology with system defense feature for remote, down-the-wire management of out-of-band networked systems.
