ITOX Launches ATX, microATX Motherboards with Dual-Core Architecture

10/6/2005 - ITOX, a leading provider of embedded motherboards, announced the introduction of its first Intel dual-core products into its long-life product line. The company's new G7L630-B ATX and G7L330-B microATX motherboards utilize the Intel® 945G Express chipset supported under Intel's Embedded Architecture program, and accept a wide performance-range of Intel LGA775 packaged processors. This includes the Intel® Pentium® D Processor featuring dual-core architecture, Intel® Pentium® 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology, Intel® Celeron® D processor and Intel® Celeron® processor.

"Our customers are pressed to continually improve performance and contain manufacturing costs," said Robert Liao, vice president, ITOX Applied Computing. "Intel's introduction of a dual-core processor line-priced near parity with previous single-core processors-has enabled ITOX to address this market demand. The new ITOX G7L630-B and G7L330-B dual-core motherboards ensure higher performance, while holding costs and power budgets."

Optimized for the Intel® Pentium® D Processor featuring dual-core architecture, the G7L630-B and G7L630-B motherboards retain full-compatibility with the Intel® Pentium® 4 processor, Intel® Celeron® D processor and Intel® Celeron processor. Maximum performance is leveraged through the use of DDR2 533/667 dual-channel memory, onboard PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet controller and support for top-of-the-line PCI-Express 16 expansion cards.

Intel dual-core architecture products contain two processor execution units and two 1MB L2 cache memories, enclosed in a single package. This allows the processing units to operate in parallel, similar to a dual-processor system, but with a lower power requirement. Software must be rewritten to achieve maximum performance, but applications written to take advantage of Intel® Pentium® 4 processor hyper-threading are "dual-core ready."

In addition, each new ITOX board is RoHS compliant and utilizes the Intel® 945G Express chipset paired with an Intel® ICH7 I/O controller hub. A single LGA775 socket provides support for specified Intel processors with 1066, 800 or 533 MHz system bus speed, Hyper-Threading, Intel® EM64T, Execute Disable Bit and dual-core Architecture.
