DFI updates computers to 6th Gen Intel Core Processors

September 4, 2015 - DFI updates 12 industrial motherboards, 2 single board computers (SBC), 4 COM Express modules and 1 compact ULT-based embedded system computers to 6th Gen Intel Core Processors (Skylake).

These latest Intel Core processors are built on Intel’s 14nm technology using 2nd generation 3-D tri-gate transistors and deliver blazing fast computing and graphics performance. These new 19 products come with LGA/BGA-package processors designed with the Intel C236/100 Series chipsets to target the IoT (Internet of Things) smart computing solutions that require scalable processing power, enhanced display capabilities, and product stability.

DFI has deployed a complete product line applying the 6th Gen Intel Core processor. It covers from small form factor SBCs, industrial-grade motherboards to embedded systems such as the wide voltage and thin Mini-ITX motherboard – SU171/SU173; high computing workstation ATX board – SD631-C236; 4” fanless compact SBC – SU251/SU253; and COM Express Compact 15W ULT module – SU968.

6th Gen Intel Core processor-based boards support up to 3 independent video streams and increased display resolutions to provide an Ultra HD 4K media experience. This new generation platform allows the embedded boards to drive breathtaking 3D video content and multiple displays simultaneously for a variety of graphics and compute-intensive solutions.

The embedded solutions are also able to support DDR4 memory with optional ECC capability which offers customers optimizing speed and power efficiency to process data faster and draw on the improved responsiveness. Taking the advantages of DDR4 memory, the motherboards can satisfy the ever-increasing workload demands of data centers and enterprise servers nowadays.

A new version of Intel vPro Technology features, such as Intel Active Management Technology 11.0, enable enterprises to remotely manage and repair their workstations or servers in real time, thereby increasing efficiency. Furthermore, Intel VT and Intel TXT improve security and reliability by allowing critical applications like bank transaction to run safely in isolation and preventing unauthorized software from starting up.

DFI’s industrial motherboards are expected to satisfy an array of embedded vertical markets and smart solutions in IoT networks with high speed I/O, cost-efficient, excellent security and manageability features.
