The XPedite7470 utilizes the processor's quad-core technology operating at 2.1 GHz to deliver enhanced performance and efficiency, making it an excellent COTS product for deployed military applications.

For floating-point intensive applications such as radar, image processing, and signals intelligence, XPedite7470 customers will benefit from the performance boost provided by the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) incorporated into the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor. Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc (X-ES) has teamed with RunTime Computing Solutions® to support applications that can take advantage of the SIMD architecture of Intel AVX. VSI/Pro®, the premier math and signal processing library available from RunTime Computing, will be supported on the XPedite7470 and all X-ES products based on the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The XPedite7470 is based on the Intel Core i7-2715QE processor and Intel® QM67 Express chipset.

The XPedite7470 features include:

- Quad-core Intel Core i7-2715QE processor with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
- Up to 8 GB of DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM in two channels
- 32 MB of boot flash and up to 16 GB of user flash
- An XMC/PrPMC site
- Two x4 Gen2 PCI Express VPX backplane interconnects
- Two optional 10/100/1000BASE-T or 1000BASE-BX Ethernet ports
- Two optional USB 2.0 high-speed ports
- Two optional SATA 3.0 or 6.0 Gb/s ports
- Two DVI graphics ports

Expert Comments:

Jennifer Skjellum, President of RunTime Computing Solutions, is convinced that X-ES’s customers will be impressed with the performance of their applications that utilize the Intel AVX capabilities through VSI/Pro®'s math libraries. Skjellum stated, “In order to deliver the performance levels required in their rugged, deployed systems, military customers need the type of cutting-edge hardware solutions that X-ES provides.”

“Intel has made a strong commitment to support the needs of the embedded computing customers,” states Ben Klam, VP of Engineering at X-ES. “Our customers are always looking for more performance, but they have to make tradeoffs between performance and Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP). Because each evolution of the Intel® Core™ processor family provides higher performance at lower MIPS/watt and a higher level of functionality and device integration, our customers can easily utilize the increased performance.”

“Developers with signal-processing applications will see profound performance increases by utilizing the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions capability of the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor,” said Matt Langman, director of product marketing, Intel Embedded Computing Division. “The complete portfolio of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors includes integrated features such as the processor graphics and memory controllers along with a more efficient microarchitecture that improves the performance reach for many of the most demanding embedded applications.”
