DFI launches 2 new COM Express Basic form factor modules - CR901-B Type 6 and CR900-B Type 2, offering the 3rd generation Intel Core processors. The supported processors are built on Intel’s 22-nanometer process technology and boast a 15% greater CPU performance over the previous generation processors. The boards support the quad-core Intel Core i7-3610QE and the dual-core Intel Core i5-3610ME processors. These processors offer higher performance at lower power consumption than the 2nd generation Intel Core processors which are also supported on these module boards. The low power module boards take full advantage of the mobile Intel QM77 Express chipset which is packed with high performance I/O capabilities to provide increased mobile computing and graphics performance.
The Intel HD Graphics 4000 engine integrated into the processors delivers up to 50% 3D graphics performance improvement and up to 1.8x HD to HD transcode performance increase. Targeted at multimedia and medical applications, CR901-B brings enhanced graphics performance by supporting 3 independent displays in any combination of VGA, LVDS and DDI (HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, and SDVO) allowing you to choose the best combination to suit various applications requirements. CR900-B on the other hand supports VGA and LVDS interfaces for dual independent display with resolution up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz.The module boards support the same high performance I/O expansion except for CR901-B which supports the new USB 3.0 that is capable of processing more data load. The mobile embedded module boards are ideal for applications requiring a stable revision-controlled platform, such as gaming, medical equipment, and KIOSK embedded applications.
