3U VPX Uses 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor for performance boost

Concurrent Technologies announces their first processor board based on the quad-core 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family (previously codenamed “Haswell”). The TR B12/msd is a 3U VPX board featuring the Intel® Core™ i7-4700EQ processor and the associated mobile Intel® QM87 Express chipset. With up to 16 Gbytes of DRAM and a rich assortment of I/O interfaces, this board is an ideal processor board for 3U VPX solutions requiring the latest in processing performance. 3U VPX is particularly well suited to high-end compute intensive applications in military embedded, aerospace and transportation systems for data acquisition, control systems and video signal processing.

The 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor family is based on 22nm process technology. This quad-core processor provides enhanced CPU and graphics performance over previous generations at TDP levels up to 47W. Additionally, new instructions are introduced, including: the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 (Intel® AVX) to provide a performance improvement in integer and floating-point-intensive computations particularly appropriate for image processing applications, and the Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) enhancements to accelerate data encryption and decryption in hardware.
