GIGABYTE recently rolled out the 6PXSV3, a workstation motherboard designed for Xeon E5-1600/2600 processors in the LGA2011 package. Based on the Intel C604 chipset, the motherboard is designed to provide essential modern and legacy connectivity to workstations in mission-critical environments. The LGA2011 socket is powered by a 6-phase VRM with CPL-made chokes, and IR-made FETs and VRM controller. It is wired to eight DIMM slots, which support up to 256 GB (RDIMM) and 64 GB (UDIMM) of quad-channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory. There are just the three expansion slots, two PCI-Express 3.0 x16, and one open-ended PCI-Express 2.0 x4. The remainder of the processor and chipset's PCI-Express lane budgets are allocated PCI-Express DMI-assist, which helps drive the mini SAS with 4 x SAS ports (3Gb/s), apart from four SATA 3 Gb/s, and two SATA 6 Gb/s ports. An ASPEED 2300 provides display output (resolutions up to 1920x1200 supported), and remote management (iKVM, IPMI 2.0). There are two gigbit Ethernet interfaces, driven by Intel 82574L chips, a third management port is also available. The GA-6PXSV3 will be available shortly.
