P8B-M is the micro-ATX form factor UP server board designed based on Intel Bromolow platform. Featuring an Intel PCH chipset, with support of leading-edge architecture, dual Intel server class GbE, SATA 6 G storage interface and ASMB5-iKVM all these advanced features integrated the compact sized micro-ATX board makes the P8B-M best candidate to fit in various appliance server.
LGA1155 socket platform for outstanding performance
P8B-M supports wide-range CPUs to cover different levels of market segment. The platform architecture uses a LGA1155 package with memory and PCI Express controllers integrated to support dual-channel DDR3 ECC memory and 20 PCI Express 2.0 lanes. The support of ECC (Error Correcting Code) memory improves data integrity to offer higher reliability. Provision of more PCI Express 2.0 lanes benefits various server applications. Most important, the motherboard provides significant performance improvement around 25% over previous generation.
Native SATA 6 Gb/s support
P8B-M is built with Intel chipset which natively supports Serial ATA (SATA) 6 G interface. It provides up to 6.0 Gb/s bandwidth, which doubles than previous SATA 3 Gb/s interface. With better protocol and electrical characteristic, user can benefit from this interface.
Dual Intel server class GbE, IPv6 support ready
With the fast explode of Internet traffic, the P8B-M equipped Intel GbE LAN controllers with IPv6 support and backward compatible with IPv4 protocol. With IPv6 ready support, customer can deploy new systems seamlessly work with existing Ethernet environment. With teaming function which supports Fault Tolerance technology. Also, the load balance handles network traffics delicately which is good at enhancing network functionality.
Built in BMC engine, IPMI 2.0 + KVM-over-IP enabled by ASMB5 module
The ASMB5-iKVM provides remotely real-time and full control via accessing to the system based on BIOS-level keyboard, video monitor, and mouse from any local computer anywhere, anytime.
UEFI BIOS support
To meet the trend of large capacity hard disk drive, P8B-M equips UEFI BIOS. The UEFI BIOS supports the GPT (GUID Partition Table) partition format and backward compatible with legacy MBR (Master Boot Record) partition format, users can easily and flexibly manage very large capacity hard disk drive or partition.
Micro ATX compact form factor increases densityIn The Box
As a slim size server board, the mATX form factor of P8B-M is ideal for various small form factor appliance servers. Integrated in short depth chassis makes customer's solution increase the density in a rack cabinet to provide higher computing power per rack than before.
