The Intel® 3450 chipset supports the latest Intel® Xeon® processor 3400 series for single-socket workstation platforms designed for entry CAD/CAM and digital content creation usages.
The Intel 3450 chipset, when combined with an Intel Xeon processor 3400 series, delivers security, manageability, and data protection to entry level workstation platforms. The new technologies featured in Intel 3450 chipset include Intel® Active Management Technology, the new Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, display, audio, and hardware-based KVM Remote Control.
|Features and benefits|
|Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT)◊1||Using built-in platform capabilities and popular third-party management and security applications, Intel® AMT allows IT to better discover, heal, and protect their networked computing assets.|
|Intel® Anti-Theft Technology◊2||Intel® Anti-Theft Technology (Intel® AT) allows systems to be disabled if they are lost or stolen. The technology can be used with or without a connection to the Internet or a corporate network. Intel AT can block the OS from loading, even if the hard drive is replaced or reformatted. Intel AT can also be used to disable access to data encryption keys and block access to valuable data on the hard drive, even if the drive is moved to a different system.|
|Enhanced Intel® Virtualization Technology||Enhancements to Intel® Virtualization Technology performance that further speeds up virtual machine transition (entry/exit) times.
Supports hardware assist for I/O virtualization using Intel Virtualization Technology for directed I/O.
|Intel® Rapid Storage Technology||Provides quicker access to files with RAID 0, 5, and 10, and greater data protection against a hard disk drive failure with RAID 1, 5, and 10, with additional hard drives added. Support for external SATA (eSATA) enables the full SATA interface speed outside the chassis, up to 3 Gb/s.|
|Intel® Rapid Recover Technology||Intel's latest data protection technology provides a recovery point that can be used to quickly recover a system should a hard drive fail or if there is massive data corruption. The clone can also be mounted as a read-only volume to allow a user to recover individual files.|
|Intel® Flexible Display Interface||An innovative path for two independently controlled channels of integrated graphics display data to be transported from processor to the Intel® 3450 chipset.|
|Support for High Definition Multimedia Interface
(HDMI)*, DisplayPort* and DVI
|HDMI delivers uncompressed HD video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in a single cable, supporting all HD formats including 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. This chipset also supports the DisplayPort interface with up to 2560 x 1600 resolution.|
|Intel® High Definition Audio||Integrated audio support enables premium digital surround sound and delivers advanced features such as multiple audio streams and jack re-tasking.|
|Serial ATA* (SATA) 3 Gb/s||High-speed storage interface supports faster transfer rate for improved data access with up to 6 SATA port.|
|eSATA||SATA interface designed for use with external SATA devices. Provides a link for 3 Gb/s data speeds to eliminate bottlenecks found with current external storage solutions.|
|SATA port disable||Enables individual SATA ports to be enabled or disabled as needed. This feature provides added protection of data by preventing malicious removal or insertion of data through SATA ports. Especially targeted for eSATA ports.|
|PCI Express* 2.0 interface||Offers up to 2.5GT/s for fast access to peripheral devices and networking with up to 8 PCI Express* 2.0 x 1 ports, configurable as x2 and x4 depending on motherboard designs.|
|Universal Serial Bus (USB)||Hi-Speed USB 2.0 provides greater enhancement in performance with a design data rate of up to 480 megabits per second (Mbps) with up to 14 USB 2.0 ports.|
|USB 2.0 rate matching hub||Enables lower power requirements and manages the transition of the communication data rate from the high speed of the host controller to the lower speed of USB full speed/low speed devices.|
|Intel® integrated 10/100/1000 MAC||Support for the Intel® 82578DM Gigabit Network Connection|
|Green technology||Manufactured with lead-free and halogen-free component packages|
