6U VPX Dual Intel® Core™ i7 Computing Node
VX6060 is the computing tool the MAG HPEC users were waiting for to walk away from 10 years of PowerPC Altivec™ dominance. Combined with the power of 6U VPX backplane technology, a new range of rugged embedded computers are appearing, which allows outstanding applications to emerge.
» Twice the Computing Power:
Two CPUs, Four Cores, Eight Threads
Embedding two dual core high performance embedded processors, VX6060 is the right answer for rugged embedded computing where the power envelope and dissipation constraints at extreme temperature still prohibit the use of quad core silicon for another number of years.
» With the Right Implementation
Implemented as two independent computing nodes, attached to a powerful Ethernet and PCIe infrastructure, VX6060 is the ideal building bloc for intensive parallel computing loads. Any number of VX6060 can be used together in full mesh or switched OpenVPX environments.
» Each CPU Node Implements:
Intel’s next generation high performance embedded processor with integrated memory controller and graphics – Intel® Core™ i7. Highly integrated Platform Controller Hub – QM57 (codename: Ibex-Peak-M)
