System
The MX57QM is based on Intel®’s latest two-chip platform. By integrating the new Mobile Intel QM57 Express chipset and socket 989 together, the MX57QM supports Intel® Core™ series i7, i5 and i3 multi-core intelligent processors providing industry-leading performance, excellence graphics, and enhanced memory and I/O bandwidth. The board has two sockets support dual channel DDR3 SO-DIMM up to 8 GB system memory.

Display
The MX57QM supports dual display through onboard HDMI, DVI, 18/24-bit dual channel LVDS and standard VGA interfaces. The HDMI delivers uncompressed HD video and multi-channel audio quality and supports all HD 720p, 1080i and 1080p formats.

Intel® Advanced Technology
There are many built-in Intel® advanced technologies supported by the MX57QM. Such technologies include:

  • Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (iTXT) – providing hardware-based mechanisms that help protect against software-based attacks protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data stored on the client side computer
