Intel's Xeon Shows Its Stuff in 7 Motherboards

Asus NCCH-DL (875P), Continued

Each CPU gets its own 8 phase voltage regulator.

Since there is not much space on the compact motherboard, some portions of the voltage regulating circuit had to be moved to the back side of the board.

Thanks to the familiar AGP interface, this motherboard looks interesting for high-end desktop applications, too.

This is the classic Dual DDR400 memory interface of Intel's 875P.

Thanks to the Canterwood chipset, unbuffered memory (non-registered) can be used and also limiting the memory size to 4 GB. However, this memory interface still works approximately 25% faster than Tumwater's DDR1 option.
