East Brunswick, N.J. ITOX has added the G5C100-N-G Mini-ITX motherboard with the Intel dual-core processors into its long-life product line.
"Many of our customers require additional processing speed to support new product applications, but are constrained by thermal-limitations," said Robert Liao, vice president, ITOX Applied Computing. "The Intel Core Duo processor has enabled ITOX to address this market demand."
The new G5C100-N-G Mini-ITX motherboard, equipped with an Intel Core Duo processor, provides up to 50% higher performance over our current Intel Pentium M processor based motherboards. If the application software has been written to take advantage of dual-core architecture, performance increases of up to 100% are possible, with no increase in power requirements, said Liao.
The G5C100-N-G motherboard utilizes the Mobile Intel 945GM Express chipset supported under Intel's Embedded Architecture program, and accepts a wide performance-range of Intel mPGA 479 packaged processors. This includes the Intel Core Duo processor featuring dual-core architecture, Intel Core Solo processor, Intel Celeron M processor and Intel\ Celeron M ULV processor.
Optimized for the Intel Core Duo processor featuring dual-core architecture, the G5C100-N-G motherboard retains full-compatibility with the Intel Celeron M processor. Maximum performance is leveraged through the use of DDR2 533MHz or 667MHz dual-channel memory, dual onboard PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet controllers and Intel GMA 950 graphics.
Intel Core Duo processors contain two execution units and one shared 2MB L2 cache memory, which features Intel Smart Cache Design to further enhance performance. This allows the processing units to operate in parallel, similar in performance to a dual-processor system, but with a lower power requirement.
In addition, the G5C100-N-G Mini-ITX board is RoHS compliant and utilizes the Intel' 945GM Express chipset paired with an Intel' ICH7M I/O controller hub. A single mPGA 479 socket provides support for specified Intel processors with 667MHz, 533MHz and 400MHz system bus speed.
The G5C100-N-G Mini-ITX form-factor (6.7"x6.7") motherboard includes: 2-Gigabit LAN Ports, 4-Serial COM Ports, 8-USB 2.0 ports, 2-PS/2 Ports, 1-VGA Port (2048x1536), 1-LVDS DFP Interface (1600x1200), Onboard 5.1 channel Audio with S/PDIF Out, 2-Serial ATA Interfaces, 1-Ultra ATA 100 Interface, 1-CompactFlash Type II Socket, 1-FDD Interface, and up to 4GB DDR2 533MHz or 667MHz dual-channel memory in 2-200-pin SODIMM Sockets.
Sample units of the ITOX G5C100-N-G product are available now, with production quantities available in the forth quarter of 2006. List pricing on the G5C100-N-G is $468. OEM volume pricing available on request.
