WIN Enterprises introduced the MB-80100 PICMG 1.3-style SHB. The MB-80100 includes the Intel LGA 1366 processor socket that enables CPU scalability across the Nehalem and Westmere multicore processor families. The MB-80100 SHB features the Intel 5520 Chipset, FireWire, an LSI 1068E RAID chip, PCI-X, and up to 20 lanes of full 64-bit PCI-Express. Evaluation units will be available by mid-August of 2010. The SHB is ideal for military, scientific, medical, seismic, and meteorology.
Chassis Plans announced the ATXW-5520 rugged rackmount system. The ATXW-5520 long life industrial server board features two Xeon 5600 series processors at 2.4GHz, twelve memory slots (up to 144GB of DDR3-1333 memory), PCI Express 2.0, and the Intel 5520 chipset. The Westmere-EP processors also provide an Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) built in for direct system memory connections leading to a six-fold increase in effective memory bandwidth. The board has a long life availability of 5 to 7 years.
