Sorry, early morning typo.  The Dell box is an LE chipset.

Has anyone seen docs for the HE-SL chipset that is being used for these
boards that are starting to show up, e.g SuperMicro 370DER? ServerWorks
only has public docs for the HE, LE and WS.  The HE-SL seems to have
similarities to both the HE and WS.  The WS has support for AGP which
the others do not.  The only machine that I have ever seen that claims
a WS chipset is the Intergraph ZX10 that SGI is now selling.

The biggest similarity between the WS and HE-SL is that they both seem
to support 2-way interleaving whereas the HE supports 4-way.
