Block Diagram of Intel® EP80579 (Tolapai) Processor
The Intel 80579 (Tolapai) footprint when compared to the standard four-chip design is reduced by approximately 45 percent. Because it takes less power to drive electrons through its smaller traces, power consumption is reduced approximately 20 percent. Throughput performance and processor efficiency are increased. The on-die inclusion of Intel® QuickAssist Integrated Accelerator technology further enhances performance and power efficiency. In addition to the CPU/MCH/ICH and QuickAssist integration, Tolapai includes an IXP Network Processor Engine (NPE) on die. This density positions the chip to serve converged applications, such as IP PBX where its resultant high through translates to low latency.
