PORTWELL ANNOUNCES NEW MICRO-ATX MOTHERBOARD BASED ON
THE INTEL® CORE™ I7 PROCESSOR AND THE MOBILE INTEL® QM57 EXPRESS CHIPSET

FREMONT, CALIF. February 16, 2010-- When Intel® introduced a proof-of-concept system, powered by Portwell's PEB-9737VGA, at the National Retail Federation Convention (NRF) in New York on January 12, 2009, the point-of-sale (POS), kiosk and digital signage in one integrated conceptual solution caught everyone's attention as a cost-effective way to enhance the retail shopping experience. In addition, the spotlight was also on its lower total cost of maintenance coming from the easy-to-upgrade feature set based on the modular design.

As the motherboard supplier for this retail point-of-sale (POS) proof-of-concept system, Portwell is pleased to announce PEB-9738VGA, a new micro-ATX motherboard based on the Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Mobile Intel® QM57 Express chipset. Built on 32nm process technology, this is the next-generation CPU platform retailers can use to remain in synchronization with the latest technology advancements on the system.

Portwell's new PEB-9738VGA harnesses Intel® Intelligent Power-Sharing Technology built into the Intel® processor, which enables it to deliver superior performance and performance-per-watt over the previous generation Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor-based platform. It also delivers greater graphics performance over the Intel® GM45 chipset-based platform. In the same way as the last proof-of-concept motherboard, the PEB-9738VGA features Intel® vPro™ technology with new Intel® Active Management Technology 6.0 and offers improved power management and greater security to allow the administrators to better manage systems remotely. This in turn reduces maintenance costs and increases energy savings.
