ADLINK: “quad” core i3 value processor on COM Express
ADLINK announces the addition of the quad-core Intel Core i3-8100H processor to its recently released Express-CF COM Express Basic size Type 6 module based on the 8th Generation Intel Core i5/i7 and Xeon processors.
Whereas previous generations Intel Core i3 processors supported only dual cores with 3MB cache, the Intel Core i3-8100H is the first in its class to support 4 CPU cores with 6MB of cache. This major upgrade results in a more than 80% performance boost in MIPS (million instructions per second), and an almost doubling of memory/caching bandwidth, all at no significant cost increase compared to earlier generations.
Intel Core i3 processors are widely recognized as the best valued processor and are therefore preferred in high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. They are popular choices in gaming, medical and industrial control to name a few. The ADLINK Express-CF-i3-8100H is currently in production.
