AXIOMTEK is pleased to reveal the release of the IMB207 industrial ATX motherboard, designed based on the new 22nm 3rd generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors in the LGA1155 socket with Intel Q77 Express chipset. According to Intel, the next generation Intel Core processor family using 22nm process technology and 3-D Tri-Gate transistors, delivers up to ~15% more CPU performance, up to 60 percent more 3D graphics performance and up to 1.8x transcode speed.
The optimized IMB207 combined with extreme computing, high bandwidth, great energy efficiency, and powerful graphics performance is ideal performance for high-end industrial applications, such as network security, storage server, POS, kiosk, medical, gaming, digital signage, and surveillance security monitoring.
“In addition to our current range of first and 2nd generation Intel Core processor-based ATX form factor motherboards, we are excited about the launch of IMB207 which is the 3rd generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor-based solution. This embedded platform supports Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Intel HD 4000 Graphics with DX11 support, 32 GB DDR3 1600/1333 memory, and PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. The IMB207 also supports Intel Active Management Technology 8.0, Trusted Platform Module 1.2, SATA RAID, as well as PCIe x4 expansion for network-intensive applications, said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek. “Furthermore, this industrial grade main board is integrated with a new HD graphics core for powerful graphic processing and triple-display capability through dual DisplayPort, DVI or VGA interfaces. Axiomtek’s IMB207 is an excellent solution for applications requiring powerful computing, a complete set of I/O, and high-end graphics while still maintaining low power consumption.”
The IMB207 comes with rich expandability including one CFast socket, one PCIe x16, one PCIe x4, two PCIe x1, and three 32-bit/33 MHz PCI slots. Onboard there are two SATA-6Gb/s and four SATA-3Gb/s ports integrated RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5 to ensure reliable storage and system protection for network-intensive applications. Other I/O features include twelve USB ports (8 USB 2.0 & 4 USB 3.0), four COM ports (3 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), dual Gigabit LANs ports, DisplayPort, VGA, DVI-I, HD audio, 8 channels Digital I/O (4-IN & 4-OUT), and PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. To ensure reliable operation, the IMB207 supports watchdog timer and SMART FAN. The IMB207 also meets all requirements for the Windows 7 OS.
The high-performance IMB207 will be available around early July, 2012.
