Product Details

The 6 Series/C200 Series incorporates a variety of PCI devices and functions separated into logical devices.Direct Media Interface (DMI) is the chip-to-chip connection between the processor and PCH. This high-speed interface integrates advanced priority-based servicing allowing for concurrent traffic and true isochronous transfer capabilities. Base functionality is completely software-transparent, permitting current and legacy software to operate normally.

Intel® FDI connects the display engine in the processor with the display interfaces on the PCH. The display data from the frame buffer is processed by the display engine and sent to the PCH where it is transcoded and driven out on the panel. The PCH integrates latest display technologies such as HDMI, DisplayPort, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP), SDVO, and DVI along with legacy display technologies - Analog Port (VGA) and LVDS (mobile only).

The PCH has two integrated SATA host controllers that support independent DMA operation on up to six ports and supports data transfer rates of up to 6.0 Gb/s (600 MB/s) on up to two ports while all ports support rates up to 3.0 Gb/s (300 MB/s) and up to 1.5 Gb/s (150 MB/s). The SATA controller contains two modes of operation - a mode using I/O space, and an AHCI mode using memory space. Software that uses legacy mode will not have AHCI capabilities.
