COM Express Type 6 module includes quad core, 3rd generation Intel Core processors
Congatec Inc. introduced conga-TM77, a new module with a significant improvement in computing performance combined with enhanced energy efficiency, according to the company. The crucial innovations in the 3rd generation Intel Core processors relate to the construction, with 3D Tri-Gate transistors and 22 nanometer technology, plus a more powerful integrated graphics core. The type 6 pinout and 3x digital display interfaces provide better display options and increased bandwidths with extra PCI Express lanes. The COM Express module is fitted with the new quad cores, 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3612QE (4 × 2.1 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache memory, TDP 35W) and Intel Core i7-3615QE (4 × 2.3 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache memory, TDP 45W) processors along with the Mobile Intel HM76 Express chipset, as well as native USB 3.0 support and the fast dual channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory, providing up to 16 GB. The newly integrated Intel HD4000 graphics core is equipped with over 16 execution units, performs up to 50 percent better than its predecessors, according to the company, and can control up to three displays independently of each other.
