Kontron brings benefits of quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor technology to the embedded space

by donpedro

Kontron announced the support of the quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3615QE (4×2.3GHz, 6MB L2 cache) and i7-3612QE (4×2.1GHz, 6MB L2 cache) processors on seven embedded computing platforms, to match the market demands for ever increasing power savings and performance gains. These are the first boards and modules to feature the increased computing power, graphics performance, long-term availability and energy efficiency of the new transistor technology from Intel. Available in COM Express basic, Flex-ATX, Mini-ITX, AdvancedMC, 3U and 6U CompactPCI as well as 3U VPX, Kontron gives OEMs a jump-start in developing a broad range of leading-edge compute- and graphics-intensive applications.
Based on Intel’s innovative 22-nanometer (nm) 3-D tri-gate transistor technology, the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor-based boards provide up to 20% enhanced computing power and up to 40% increased performance per watt compared to designs based on the 2nd generation Intel Core processors. This meets and exceeds the requirement for improved size, weight and power (SWaP) of embedded designs and enables designers to utilize the power of the latest quad-core Intel processors for the first time on small form factors such as COM Express, AdvancedMC and 3U VPX.
