COM Express™ Modules with brand-new, quad-core 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processors

17 MAY 2012

MSC Vertriebs GmbH presents the first COM Express™ modules based on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family (formerly codenamed ‘Ivy Bridge’). The 3rd generation Intel Core processor family utilizes Intel’s advanced 22nm process technology with three-dimensional transistors for higher performance at lower power. The new COM Express modules feature a further leap forward in computing power, graphics and video performance in comparison to modules based on the previous generation Intel platform. Important innovations of this new product generation are lower power consumption at higher clock frequencies and an improved graphics and video performance. For the first time, the new Intel platform supports DirectX 11. The first products of these module families are equipped with the quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-3615QE processor with 45W thermal dissipation power (TDP) and the Intel® Core™ i7-3612QE processor (35W TDP). The quad-core processors include support for Intel® 64 architecture, Intel® Virtualization Technology, Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions and the Intel® Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Thanks to the integration of enhanced Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, single cores can be over-clocked in order to increase the performance.
