Great Intel® Q45 Industrial ATX Motherboard Performs Excellent Graphics Performance – IMB203

AXIOMTEK’s IMB203 industrial motherboard utilizes the Intel® Q45 Express chipset and Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q9400 to provide outstanding performance and energy efficiency

Taipei, Taiwan, April 20, 2009- AXIOMTEK’s IMB203 industrial ATX motherboard features a LGA775 Intel® Core™2 Quad processor with an 800/1066/1333MHz front side bus. Powered by the Intel® Q45+ICH10DO chipset, consisting of the Intel® 82Q45 Graphic Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 10DO (ICH10DO), the IMB203 delivers extreme performance and advanced I/O. Four 240-pin DDR3 DIMM sockets on the IMB203 have a maximum memory capacity of 16GB. The IMB203 motherboard also features excellent graphics performance with the integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 and a PCIe x16 slot. This industrial motherboard offers ideal performance for digital surveillance, gaming machine, POI, DSA, kiosk, and network security applications.

Processors supported on the IMB203 also include the Intel® Core™2 Duo and Celeron® processors. Incorporating Intel® Q45 and ICH10DO chipsets, the IMB203 comes with rich expandability including one PCIe x16, one PCIe x4, one PCI x1 and four PCI slots. To satisfy increasing demands on data transfer speed, the ATX motherboard provides twelve USB 2.0 ports and six SATA-300 ports integrated RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10 function. Networking is provided by Intel® 82567LM and Intel® 82574L Gigabit LAN interfaces. Moreover, the IMB203 with Q45 features an integrated Intel® Trusted Platform Module (Intel® TPM) and the latest Intel® Active Management Technology² (Intel® AMT) 5.0 for higher security, easier maintenance, therefore lowering total cost of ownership.

“The new IMB203 embedded ATX motherboard feature the 45nm Intel® Core™2 Quad processor Q9400 with 2.66 GHz, 6 MB L2 cache and a FSB of up to 1,333 MHz. The Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 and Microsoft® DirectX 10 provided with the Intel® Q45 Express chipset offers excellent graphics performance. For higher graphics computing ability, it provides a PCI Express x16 slot that delivers 3.5 times the bandwidth of traditional AGP 8X slots. Moreover, the IMB203 with built-in Intel® Active Management Technology 5.0 and Intel® Trusted Platform Module 1.2 (TPM 1.2) has answered today’s customers’ needs of enhanced security and remote access for easier maintenance. The IMB203 is an ideal for point-of-sale terminals, DVR, DSA, industrial control and automation, gaming, and network security applications,” said Joseph Chou, Product Manager of Embedded Computing Business Unit.

Measuring 305 x 244 mm, the newest IMB203 comes with rich I/O features including one floppy, twelve USB 2.0 ports, six SATA-300 interfaces, one PS/2 (keyboard and mouse), four COM ports (3 x RS-232 & 1 x RS-232/422/485), dual Gigabit LAN, audio, and LPT. Additionally, the built-in Watchdog Timer keeps system running smoothly. The product is RoHS compliance and will be available around early May, 2009.
