RUBY-M710VG2AR features "greener" technology, DDR3 support and dual Gigabit Ethernet

FREMONT, CALIF. -- October 26, 2010 -- American Portwell Technology, Inc., (http://www.portwell.com) a wholly owned subsidiary of Portwell, Inc., a world-leading innovator in the Industrial PC (IPC) market and an Associate member of the Intel(r) Embedded Alliance, has launched its new RUBY-M710VG2AR. Aimed squarely at customers who seek significant computing performance and lower power consumption improvements, American Portwell's RUBY-M710VG2AR is the perfect tool to help them build the best environmentally friendly, greener embedded PC solutions. The new RUBY-M710VG2AR industrial ATX form factor motherboard is based on Intel's Mobile QM57 Express Chipset supporting the latest Core i5 or i7 processor for Quad Core CPU support. RUBY-M710VG2AR features: two 240-pin DIMM sockets to support dual-channel DDR3 1066/800 SDRAM up to 8GB; dual display via VGA/DVI-D/HDMI/ LVDS; one PCI-E x16, one PCI-E x4, one PCI-E x1, four PCI expansion slots and one Mini PCI-E socket; dual Intel GbE LANs (one of which can support iAMT 6.0); plus SATA (supporting RAID 0, 1, 5, 10), Audio and USB. The new RUBY-M710VG2AR also provides legacy support for Intel Celeron(r) processor P4500.

American Portwell's RUBY-M710VG2AR Intel Core i5/i7 processor-based industrial ATX motherboard is the ideal solution for Green PC and applications in such areas as Point-of-Sale (POS), lottery, medical, gaming, digital signage, surveillance security monitoring and kiosks.

Fast and powerful energy-saver
"The new RUBY-M710VG2AR offers the fastest mobile Intel Core i5/i7 and Celeron P4500 processors that provide significant computing performance and lower power consumption improvements over the previous Core 2 Quad and Core 2 Duo processors," says Robert Feng, American Portwell Technology's product marketing manager. "The key difference," Feng adds, "is that our RUBY-M710VG2AR industrial ATX motherboard is based on the mobile processor with CPU and chipset thermal design power (TDP) at 38.5W. This configuration saves more than 60 percent energy over most of the off-the-shelf PCs currently on the market. It's the leading motherboard for building green PCs in terms of protecting the environment and saving energy. In addition," Feng confirms, "it provides multiple expansion slots for add-on solutions to be used in a wide variety of industries."

Reduced yearly energy charge and long product life cycle

Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology's product marketing director points out that the major portion of the cost for those industries requiring high-performance computing is the yearly energy charge. According to Shen, American Portwell's new RUBY-M710VG2AR industrial ATX motherboard can help reduce this energy bill by more than 50 percent through its low power consumption without compromising its powerful performance. "This is a huge benefit for the 24/7 data center server room," says Shen, "as well as automotive production and security operations. When you combine our high-quality motherboard with the mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset, RUBY-M710VG2AR is right on track to deliver a green PC solution that is environmentally friendly and energy efficient too.

"Not only that," Shen continues, "but our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long life cycle support inherent with every Portwell product."
