Integrated AI accelerators and 28 GB DDR4 RAM enable graphics intensive workloads to ‘see’ a boost of up to 70% compared to predecessors.
Congatec has introduced 20 new AI-based Computer-on-Modules following the launch of Intel’s 11th generation Core processor for IoT. Featuring 11th Gen Intel Core vPro, Intel Xeon W-11000E, and Intel Celeron processors, the new modules target the most demanding IoT gateway and edge computing applications.
Built on Intel’s 10nm SuperFin technology in a two-package design with dedicated CPU and platform controller hub (PCH) the new flagship COM-HPC Client and COM Express Type 6 modules impress with a new bandwidth benchmark of up to 20 PCIe Gen 4.0 lanes for massive connected real-time IIoT gateway and intelligent edge computing workloads. To process such massive workloads, the new modules boast up to 128 GB DDR4 SO‑DIMM RAM, integrated AI accelerators and up to 8 high-performance CPU cores that achieve up to 65% gain  in multi-thread performance and up to 32% gain  in single-thread performance. Moreover, visualization, auditory and graphics intensive workloads are enabled with a boost of up to 70% compared to predecessors , enhancing performance for these immersive experiences even more.
Flagship applications that directly benefit from these GPU enhancements can be found in surgery, medical imaging and e-health edge applications as congatec’s new platform supports 8K HDR videos for optimum diagnostics.
