Portwell industrial mainboard

Portwell Inc. recently introduced the RUBY-9713VG2AR, a uATX form factor industrial mainboard that adopts Intel's latest PCI Express chipset based on Intel 945GM and ICH7R that supports the 667MHz FSB processor. According to the company, the device delivers outstanding system performance through high-bandwidth interface such as dual-channel DDR2 667 memory, PCI-Express x16 graphic, up to four PCI slots, up to four PCI-E x1 slots, two PCI-E based GbE ports, four SATA 300 ports and one IDE channel. This chipset includes the Intel GMA 950 graphics core that promises responsive graphics performance and stunning video playback.

Multi-core technology has been a major evolution in IT industry since various applications are now running in parallel. Multi-core processors help address computing challenges and offer significant performance and efficiency in computers. It has the ability to simultaneously run multiple complex applications at the same time complete multiple tasks beyond the capabilities of single-core processors. Furthermore, each core on a multi-core system has its own cache so the OS has sufficient resources to handle compute-intensive tasks in parallel.

Portwell's RUBY-9713VG2AR also features next-generation Serial ATA 300 ports and Intel Matrix Storage Technology. The chipset have four integrated SATA ports for transfer rates up to 3Gbps, which is double the speed of current SATA interfaces. SATA 3Gbps essentially provides a larger pipe to move data faster. Together with Intel Matrix Storage Technology, it adds support for RAID levels 0, 1, 5 and 10, promising quick access to data and protection against data loss for maximum performance, protection and upgradeability.
