X-ES Supports 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor Across Product Line

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) 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, 6U VME, air-cooled XMC/PrPMC, and conduction-cooled XMC/PrPMC. The XPedite7470 3U VPX Single Board Computer (SBC) and XCalibur4401 6U CompactPCI SBC are the first products available from X-ES to support the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor.

3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors provide higher performance and lower power compared to 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors. 3rd 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, 2.3 GHz
  • Quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-3612QE, 2.1 GHz

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 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors are more easily supported in conduction-cooled applications. As with all Intel® processors used in X-ES designs, the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors are on Intel&’s embedded roadmap, guaranteeing at least seven years of availability for our customers.
