Computer-on-Modules with new processors offer up to 50% more multi-thread performance

Congatec has introduced its new conga-TS370 COM Express Type 6 Computer-on-Modules together with the launch of the 8th Generation Embedded Intel Xeon and Intel Core processors (codename Coffee Lake H). They launch the 35-45W TDP class of COM Express Type 6 modules to a new ‘six-pack’ level of high-end embedded computing, providing up to six cores, 12 threads and a turbo boost of up to 4.4GHz and drive up to three independent 4k UHD displays. Primary tests from the company show these new six-core modules offer between 45-50% more multi-thread and 15-25% more single-thread performance, compared to 7th Gen Intel Core processor-based variants. At a given TPD, system designs reach higher bandwidth at overall lower power consumption finally leading to higher system efficiency. Ideal applications are high performance embedded and mobile systems, storage servers and cloud workstations, industrial and medical workstations, as well as media transcoding and edge computing cores.

“Markets such as medical imaging and Industry 4.0 as well as video analytics, e.g. situational awareness and transportation observation are keen on any new performance improvement,” explains Martin Danzer, director of product management at Congatec. “We simplify the use of these performance improvements with our standardised Computer-on-Modules, cooling solutions and eAPIs, making upgrading to the latest processor generations more or less a plug & play task.”
