ITOX Introduces G7B630-NRM-G Long Life ATX Motherboard with RAID

ITOX, a leading provider of embedded x86 products, announced the introduction of the G7B630-NRM-G motherboard supporting Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad processors. This high-performance ATX form factor board is designed specifically for embedded applications requiring a stable revision-controlled platform. Utilizing the Intel(R) Q965 Express chipset with ICH8DO Southbridge, this product has guaranteed availability through December 2011. The LGA775 socket supports a wide range of Intel Embedded Architecture processors, including the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad processor, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processor and Intel(R) Celeron(R) D processor.

ITOX G7B630-NRM-G Long Life ATX Motherboard with RAIDRAID 0, 1, 5 & 10 disk configuration support is incorporated into the G7B630-NRM-G system BIOS using Intel(R) Matrix Storage Technology. These BIOS based configuration controls allow pre-OS RAID creation, naming and deletion of disk arrays. Full management and status reporting of the RAID array storage devices is performed using Intel Matrix Storage Manager utility software. An auxiliary powered hardware and firmware solution incorporates Intel(R) Active Management Technology (Intel AMT), enabling remote monitoring and control of system resources. These features make the ITOX G7B630-NRM-G ideal for data intensive applications such as medical imaging, security & surveillance, interactive Kiosks, and additional applications requiring higher data security.

“With the introduction of the Intel Core 2 Quad processor it is now possible to accommodate medical imaging and video processing applications using a lower cost desktop solution,” said Todd Shaner, Business Development Manager, ITOX Applied Computing. “These market applications also demand high-performance disk storage systems that provide additional data integrity and security. Through incorporation of Intel Matrix Storage Manager technology, and the Intel Q965/ICH8DO Express chipset, these requirements are cost-effectively addressed.”

Optimized for the Intel Core 2 Quad processor, the G7B630-NRM-G motherboard retains full compatibility with Intel Core 2 Duo processor and Intel Celeron D processor. Maximum performance is leveraged with up to 8GB DDR2 800MHz dual-channel memory, dual PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet controllers and onboard Intel GMA 300 graphics.
