AXIOMTEK Co., Ltd
23 August 2012
AXIOMTEK has announced the introduction of the SHB120, a high-performance PICMG 1.3 full-size CPU card designed for the latest 22nm 3rd generation Intel Core processors using LGA1155 socket, delivering significant performance, power savings and graphics enhancements.
Based on the 3rd generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors with Intel Q77 Express chipset, the SHB120 supports the world's first 3-D transistor, Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, Intel HD Graphics, and PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. The outstanding single board computer also supports 16 GB DDR3 1600/1333 unbuffered memory, SATA RAID, PCIe x4 expansion, as well as Intel Active Management Technology 8.0 for network-intensive applications. With the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics engine with DirectX 11 technology, the SHB120 offers advanced 3D graphics and dual display view via DVI and VGA or optional DisplayPort. This high cost per performance value single board computer is ideal for applications in network security, storage server, POS, kiosk, medical, gaming, digital signage, and surveillance security monitoring.
“Axiomtek’s newest SHB120 single board computer is a mainstream platform designed for the new 3rd generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors, providing extreme computing and high bandwidth with great energy efficiency and graphics performance said Roger Shyu, Product Manager of Product & Marketing Division at Axiomtek. “According to Intel, the new generation Intel Core processor family using 22nm architecture is nearly 30 percent smaller than the existing 32nm chips and delivers up to ~15% more CPU performance, up to 60% more 3D graphics performance and up to 1.8x transcode speed. While exhibiting advanced performance in both computing and graphics, this PICMG 1.3 full size slot CPU card still maintains low power consumption. Axiomtek’s SHB120 is fully compatible with our PICMG 1.3 full-size passive backplanes, and we offer various industrial housing enclosures and have the capability to assist with any customer's industrial integration requirements.
Data security and availability are enhanced by two SATA-6Gb/s and four SATA-3Gb/s ports with support for RAID 0, 1, 10, 5. The PCI Express available on the new Intel Core processors provides flexible x16, x4 or x1 lanes for versatile applications. The slot CPU board features rich I/O ports with twelve USB ports (10 USB 2.0 & 2 USB 3.0), two COM ports (1 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), dual Gigabit LANs, DisplayPort (optional), VGA, DVI-D, HD audio, and PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. With LPC I/O integrated, the board provides reliable operation and non-stop capability by watchdog timer, as well as SMART FAN which controls the fan speed to keep the temperature within a specified range. The SHB120 meets all requirements for the mainstream Windows 7 OS.
The high-performance SHB120 will be available around the early of August, 2012.
