Intel SE7525GP2 (I7525), Continued
Intel's SE7525GP2 works with DDR400.
Even though Intel is focusing on DDR2 SDRAM, the motherboard we received for review works with DDR-400. Using a per-module capacity of two GB, a maximum of eight GB RAM can be added.
Intel chose to integrate its own 82541 Gigabit Ethernet chip, which is attached via PCI Express.
The SE7525 is available as a dual LAN version, too.
Status LEDs indicate the system status by turning orange, blue and red.
The backplane carries six LEDs responsible for displaying the system status.
There is a second COM port, but it has to be lead outside using an adapter that Intel provides. However, we missed a parallel port, since many professional workstation-level applications require dongles as a copy protection.
