Intel® 810E chipset
product overview

In the Intel® 810 chipset, Intel developed technology that enhances the performance and exceptional value of the Intel® Celeron® and Intel® Pentium® III processor-based PC. The Intel® 810E chipset integrates the innovative features of the 810 chipset with performance enhancements and added flexibility.

The 810E chipset embraces the stability of the 810 chipset by reuse of solid integrated technology. The 810E chipset provides flexibility to support all socket 370 Intel® processors based on .13 micron or .18 micron process technology, including those with the 133 MHz system bus as well as previous Intel processors with the 66 or 100 MHz system bus. The 810E chipset features Intel® graphics technology which further enhances performance by supporting both 133 and 100 MHz local display cache. The 810E chipset also utilizes the 810 chipset stable graphics software drivers, providing stability and value with Intel graphics performance and smart integration.

Performance Benefits at a Value Price
The 810E chipset is built on Intel's 800 chipset series integrated design technology, and offers all the features and benefits of the 810 chipset. Like the 810 chipset, the 810E chipset offers integrated graphics, Intel® Hub Architecture, direct AGP and AC97 audio controller.

The Intel 810E chipset features a unique internal gear arbitration, allowing it to run seamlessly with 66 MHz, 100 MHz and 133 MHz processor busses. Validated and tuned for both Celeron and Pentium III processors, the Intel 810E chipset offers a one-stop solution with a single, flexible motherboard, for Intel's value and mainstream processors.

An Integrated Design With Big Benefits
At the core of the 810E chipset is a memory controller with built-in graphics technology. By optimizing crucial memory arbitration, the 810E chipset is a more responsive and cost-effective system.

  • The 82810E Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) features Intel® graphics technology and software drivers, using Direct AGP (integrated AGP) to create vivid 2D and 3D effects and images. The 82810E features integrated Hardware Motion Compensation to improve soft DVD video quality and a digital video out port that enables connection of traditional TVs or the new space-saving digital flat-panel displays.

  • Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT) is an architecture that offers break-through integrated graphics performance with more efficient memory utilization and direct AGP. The system O/S uses the Intel software drivers and intelligent memory arbiter to support richer graphics applications.

  • The System Manageability Bus allows networking equipment to monitor the 810E chipset platform. Using ACPI specifications, the system manageability function enables low-power sleep mode and conserves energy when the system is idle.

  • The 82801 I/O Controller Hub (ICH) employs Intel® Controller Hub Architecture which makes a direct connection from the graphics and memory to integrated AC97 controller, the IDE controllers, dual USB ports and PCI add-in cards. At 266 MB per second, the Hub Architecture provides twice the bandwidth of the PCI bus.

  • The Integrated Audio-Codec 97 Controller enables software audio by using the processor to power integrated sound and modem software. Reusing existing system resources adds flexibility, improves sound quality and lowers system BOM costs by eliminating components.

The 810E chipset brings next generation processor technology to the mainstream with added flexibility and performance at value pricing.
