X-ES 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor-Based Product Line

Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) is supporting the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor (formerly codenamed "Ivy Bridge") across eight industry-standard form factors – COM Express, 3U VPX, 6U VPX, 3U CompactPCI, 6U CompactPCI, VME, air-cooled PrPMC/XMC, and conduction-cooled PrPMC/XMC. The first products available are:

3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors provide higher performance and lower power compared to 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processors. 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors also include Intel HD Graphics with DirectX 11, supporting OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1. Initially, X-ES products are available with the following versions of the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor:

  • Quad-core Intel Core i7-3615QE, 2.3GHz
  • Quad-core Intel Core i7-3612QE, 2.1GHz

When dual-core versions of 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors become available, they will be supported on X-ES products.

Quad-core 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors are more easily supported in conduction-cooled applications due to lower power consumption. As with all Intel processors used in X-ES designs, the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors are on Intel’s embedded roadmap, guaranteeing at least seven years of availability for our customers.
