Axiomtek's Released New Intel® Core(TM) i7 / i5/ i3 Industrial ATX Motherboard - IMB205

The latest industrial ATX motherboard IMB205 equipped Intel® Q57 Express Chipset and performs extreme computing power and excellent graphics performance

Taipei, Taiwan, -- Axiomtek Co., Ltd. today is pleased to introduce IMB205 ATX motherboard, designed for the new Intel® Core(TM) i7, Core(TM) i5 and Core(TM) i3 processors in the LGA1156 socket with 8MB Intel® Smart Cache, Hyper-Threading technology, Turbo Mode, QuickPath, DDR3 1066/1333 memory, and PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot. Incorporating Intel® Q57 Express chipset, the IMB205 powered by the Intel® Core(TM) i7, i5, and i3 processors supports Intel® Turbo Boost technology² and Intel® Hyper-Threading technology (Intel® HT technology) which boost computing performance up to 30% better than Eaglelake platform and increase 3D performance 1.5 ~ 2x. Moreover, the high C/P value motherboard with rich application interfaces and flexible I/O connections is an all-in-one embedded solution for DVR, digital security surveillance, gaming machine, visual inspection instruments, and video server.

"The IMB205 is our first ATX motherboard built around Intel® Q57 Express chipset, design to support the new Intel® Core(TM) i7, i5 and i3 processors with a 1066/1333 MHz front side bus in the LGA1156 package. All three Clarkdale CPUs bring memory and graphics controllers onto the CPUs themselves and offer a Turbo Boost feature and Hyper-Threading technology that can scale the clock speeds up on demand. Moreover, the built-in Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0 (iAMT 6.0) and Trusted Platform Module 1.2 (TPM 1.2) have answered today's customers' needs of enhanced security and remote access for easier maintenance," said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Product Manager of Embedded Board and Technology Business Unit. "The IMB205 ATX motherboard also meets all current requirements for the Windows® 7, making it ready to satisfy all the demanding needs of today's and tomorrow's applications."

The IMB205 comes with rich expandability including one PCIe x16, one PCIe x4, two PCIe x1, and three 32-bit/33 MHz PCI slots. Four DIMM socket slots on board implement up to 16GB DDR3 memory at speeds of 1066/1333MHz. Six serial ATA-II ports integrated RAID 0, 1, 10 and 5 function with transfer rates up to 3 Gb/s. Moreover, the ATX motherboard features a wealth of I/O ports, including four USB 2.0 ports and headers for eight more USB 2.0, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, four COM ports (3 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), DisplayPort, VGA, HD audio, iAMT, TPM and PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. The built-in Watchdog Timer (1~255 seconds/minutes) keeps system running smoothly.

The powerful ATX motherboard IMB205 will be available around early April, 2010. For more product details or pricing, global website or contact our sales representative at
