GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the CT12 6U CompactPCI high performance single board computer, which is based on the latest 2.53 GHz Intel Core i7 (Arrandale) processor technology and features up to 8 GBytes of DDR3 memory. It is designed to bring high throughput computing and leading edge performance/watt to a broad range of applications. Intel’s latest Core i7 mobile processor technology is designed to deliver high performance with low power consumption and low heat dissipation. It is highly integrated, incorporating Northbridge components – memory controller, PCI Express for external graphics, integrated graphics and the DMI connector – which make it both faster and more compact. Its clock speed, dual core architecture and new performance features allow applications to be executed more quickly – or allow more tasks to be executed concurrently. Using TurboBoost technology, the CT12 can operate in single core mode – for applications where dual core operation is not necessary – at clock speeds of 3.33GHz, allowing some applications to execute even faster. The CT12 is designed to allow upgrade to faster Intel Core processors as these become available.
