P8B-M is the 5th generation micro-ATX form factor UP serverboard whose design is based on the up-to-date Intel Bromolow platform. It features an Intel® C204 PCH chipset with support of leading-edge architecture, dual Intel server class GbE, SATA 6G storage interface and optional ASMB5-iKVM. All these advanced features integrated into this compact-sized micro-ATX board makes the P8B-M the best candidate to fit in any server application.
Up-to-date LGA1155 Socket Platform for Outstanding Performance
P8B-M supports wide-range CPUs to cover different levels of market segments, including Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 processor family, Intel® Core™ i3-2100 processor family, and Intel® Core™ G8x0/G6x0 processor family. The new platform architecture uses an 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. More PCI Express 2.0 lanes benefits various server applications. Most importantly, the motherboard provides significant performance improvements around 25% over previous generation.
Native SATA 6Gbps Support
The P8B-M is built with Intel® C204 chipset which natively supports latest Serial ATA (SATA) 6G interface. It provides up to 6.0Gbps bandwidth, which doubles previous SATA 3Gbps interface. With better protocol and electrical characteristic, users benefit from this new interface by better I/O performance. What's more, it's ready for upcoming SSD applications.
Dual Intel Server Class GbE, IPv6 Support Ready
With the explosion of Internet traffic, the P8B-M comes equipped with Intel® GbE LAN controllers with IPv6 support and is backward compatible with IPv4 protocol. With IPv6-ready support, customers can implement new systems to work seamlessly with existing Ethernet environments. This MB also features a teaming function, which supports Fault Tolerance technology. Also, the Load Balance handles network traffics delicately - which is good for enhancing network functionality.
Built-In BMC Engine, IPMI 2.0 + KVM-over-IP Enabled by An ASMB5 Module
The optional ASMB5-iKVM provides full remote, real-time control via access to the system based on a BIOS-level keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer - anytime, anywhere.
Wide Range OS Support
The P8B-M supports a wide-range of mainstream server and client OSs, including Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7, Cent OS, redhat, SuSE Linux and so on, to meet the demands of different customers.
UEFI BIOS support
Coinciding with the trend toward large capacity hard disk drives, P8B-M equips UEFI BIOS. The UEFI BIOS supports the latest GPT (GUID Partition Table) partition format and is backward compatible with legacy MBR (Master Boot Record) partition formats, so users will easily and flexibly manage very large capacity hard disk drives or partitions - ex: single hard disk or single partition larger than 2.2TB.
Micro-ATX Compact Form Factor Increases Density
As a slim size serverboard, the 9.6" x 9.6" mATX form factor of the P8B-M is ideal for various small form factor appliance servers. Integrating a small chassis increases the computing density in a rack or cabinet system, providing more power to your rack space.
