29...Intel® Q35 Express Chipset

The Intel® Q35 Express chipset addresses key requirements of many embedded computing designs, including graphics, low-power consumption, noise reduction, manageability, data protection and security. When combined with Intel® Core™2 Duo processors on 45nm and 65nm process technology, this impressive platform helps embedded equipment manufacturers deploy exceptionally responsive, high-performance, low-power systems for interactive clients (i.e., point-of-sale terminals and interactive PCs), industrial control and automation, gaming, print imaging and network security applications.

Features and benefits1333/1066/800 MHz front-side bus Validated with a variety of processors to meet a wide range of performance needs, including the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor E8400Δ with Intel® Virtualization Technology¹ and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology¹,²,±, Intel Core2 Duo processor E6400Δ with Intel® Virtualization Technology¹, Intel Core 2 Duo processor E4300Δ, Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor E2160Δ, and Intel® Celeron® processor 440Δ.
Dual-Channel DDR2 800/667 memory support Up to 12.8 GB/s (DDR2 800 MHz) bandwidth and 8 GB memory addressability for faster system responsiveness and support of 64-bit computing.
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 (Intel® GMA 3100) 3-D enhancements enable greater flexibility and scalability. Improved realism with support for Microsoft DirectX* 9.0c Shader Model 2.0, OpenGL* 1.4.
Intel® Fast Memory Access (Intel® FMA) Helps improve system performance by optimizing use of available memory bandwidth and reducing latency of memory access by monitoring all pending read/write requests; allows safe and efficient overlapping of commands on all system bus interfaces.
Lower thermals The updated Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) features a low-power graphics core with 13 watts thermal design power (TDP).
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.
PCI Express* x16 ports Can be statically configured as PCI Express x8/x4/x1. The Intel® Q35 MCH contains one 16-lane (x16) PCI Express port (compliant with the PCI Express Base Specification revision 1.1), intended for an external PCI Express graphics card or PCI Express I/O card.

Δ Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See for details.

± System and component performance and functionality will vary depending on specific hardware and software configurations. See for more information on use of Intel® TXT.

¹ Intel® Virtualization Technology and Intel® Trusted Execution Technology require a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.

² Not all specified units of this processor support Intel® VT or Intel® TXT. See the Processor Spec Finder at or contact your Intel representative for more information.
