Re: Define Core I/O

There is no rigorous definition as it means somewhat different things on different models. On some models there is literally a separate board labeled "Core I/O" so whatever is on that card is, by definition, Core I/O. In other cases, the core i/o functions are integrated with the systemboard. In general, it means those I/O capabilities/ports that are included with the base system as opposed to optional i/o boards.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

On most servers the core I/O card is a special card containing a LAN device and a console device. But it depends on the specific model - they are all different ...

Hope this helps!
