Third Generation Intel Core i7 Processor Third across Product Line
Page 1 of 1
Extreme Engineering Solutions is supporting the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor across eight industry-standard form factors: COM Express, 3U VPX, 6U VPX, 3U CompactPCI, 6U CompactPCI, VME, air-cooled PrPMC/XMC and conduction-cooled PrPMC/XMC. The XPedite7470 3U VPX Single Board Computer (SBC) and XCalibur4401 6U CompactPCI SBC are the first products available from X-ES to support the third generation Intel Core i7 processor.
Third generation Intel Core i7 processors provide higher performance and lower power compared to 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processors. Third generation Intel Core i7 processors also include Intel HD Graphics with DirectX 11, supporting OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1. Initially, X-ES products are available with these versions of the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor: Quad-core Intel Core i7-3615QE, 2.3GHz and Quad-core Intel Core i7-3612QE, 2.1GHz. When dual-core versions of 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors become available, they will be supported on X-ES products.
Because of the lower power consumption of the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors, quad-core third generation Intel Core i7 processors are more easily supported in conduction-cooled applications. As with all Intel processors used in X-ES designs, the third generation Intel Core i7 processors are on Intel’s embedded roadmap, guaranteeing at least seven years of availability for customers.
