Intel 5 Series Chipsets
Intel Clarkdale and 5 Series controller.
The Intel 5 Series chipset come in three different flavors and support a few technologies worth noting.
- Intel Flexible Display Interface: An innovative path for two independently controlled channels of integrated graphics display data to be transported to the Intel 5 Series Chipset.
- Intel Rapid Storage Technology: With additional hard drives added, provides quicker access to digital photo, video and data files with RAID 0, 5, and 10, and greater data protection against a HDD failure with RAID 1, 5, and 10.
- Support for 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 Remote PC Assist Technology: This technology enables you to make a fast call for help and request remote technical assistance if you encounter a problem with your PC, even when the OS, network software, or applications are not functioning.
The three new chipsets are H55, H57, and Q57.
In the photo above you can get an idea of how the CPU and H55 chipset interface with all the parts of the system.
With H57, you have the option for Intel Rapid Storage Technology. You also gain two more PCIe lanes, as well as two additional USB 2.0 ports over H55.
Q57 adds Intel Active Management Technology as an option. The Q57 should have great appeal to businesses as the Intel AMT can allow the help desk to remotely troubleshoot problems, and quickly resolve them.
