"Advantech launched a flotilla of seven Linux-ready devices using Intel's new, embedded-oriented Core i7 processor. The products include two Mini-ITX motherboards (the AIMB-270 and AIMB-280), a microATX board (AIMB-580), an ATX motherboard (AIMB-780), the PICMG-format PCE-5125, the PCM-9593 "5.25-inch" SBC (single board computer), and the SOM-5788 COM Express module.

"Though specific processor support varies by model, Advantech's seven new devices -- six of which are shown at right -- are all designed to take advantage of the new embedded-specific Core CPUs Intel announced last week, along with the QM57 Express or Q57 Express chipsets. According to the chipmaker, advantages of the new parts include "Turbo Boost" technology that varies clock speed upon demand, integrated graphics cores adequate for "mainstream and casual gaming," plus advanced power-saving that can selectively shut down CPU cores."
