BCM Industrial ATX Motherboard Supports Intel® Core™ i7, Core™ i5 and Core™ i3 Processors

BCM Advanced Research’s BC57Q is based on the LGA1156 socket H with the Intel® Q57 Express Chipset architecture. This Single-chip design integrates the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and the memory controller into the Intel® Core™ i7, Core i5 and Core i3 processors while combining the other functionality of the North and South bridges into one single Controller Hub. This repartition of the processors and chipsets has a new platform terminology called the Platform Controller Hub (PCH), providing a Turbo Boost feature and Hyper-Threading technology that enables greater performances and system improvements over the previous generations.

The BC57Q provides many built-in advanced Intel® technologies including the Intel® vPro Technology, Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0, Intel® Anti-Theft Technology, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology, Intel® Virtualization Technology, Intel® Rapid Storage Technology, and Intel® Rapid Recovery Technology. The known Trusted Platform Module 1.2 (TPM 1.2) is also supported for security enhancement. “When equipped with the Intel® Q57 Express Chipset and powered by the Intel® Core™ i7, Core i5 or Core i3 processors, the BC57Q becomes an Intelligent and powerful computing system which will fulfills the needs of major performance hungry industrial applications such as medical imaging, industrial automation, and advanced surveillance systems”, said by Tom Skibinski, the VP of Sales and Marketing at BCM.
