MSI has today introduced a new Mini-ITX embedded board for high-density processing and graphic application markets. The MS-98C7 features great processing and graphic power and also supports sufficient memory capacity up to 16GB to ensure smooth outputs with efficiency, even when tough tasks are required. The MS-98C7 features the Intel 4th Generation 8 series chipset platform, whose CPU performance is rated to be 5 to 15% higher and graphic performance 30% higher than the 3rd generation platform.

Armed with the great processing and graphic power, the MS-98C7 also supports Plus its 3 or 2 independent displays with output interfaces of VGA, LVDS, and DP, the MS-98C7 delivers an excellent solution for industrial scenes with intensive display requirements, such as digital signage, onboard MOD, gaming, and more.

Two scalable SKU fulfill your cost-effective or high-end demands

MS-98C7 comes with 2 different SKU to satisfy different application requirements. Both the cost-effective H81 and high-end Q87 offer scalable CPU options. Users can freely choose the features needed to fulfill diverse demands.

Rich I/O with flexible configuration means

Aiming at industrial applications with diverse peripheral devices in fields, the MS-98C7 is designed with 10 or 8 USB ports, 5 COM ports (with 4 powered), and 8 GPIO for multiple connections. To facilitate the configuration of I/O according to different scenes, the MS-98C7 allows users to define the I/O via BIOS, giving more flexibility for industrial applications.
