Keeping the Size Down Keeps the Cost Down
“Since we know high resolution imaging is one of the major criteria for medical applications,” Feng explains, “we integrated the latest Intel HD graphics 3000, combined with the newest 32nm processor technology, it means WADE-8011 can deliver the clearest high-end graphics performance with the lowest power requirements. The new integrated graphics engine also improves 3D rendering and more complex shading to create more responsive and realistic 3D visual views.”
Frank Shen, American Portwell Technology’s senior product marketing director points out that the six SATA ports on board the new WADE-8011 prove RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 for the storage appliance market. “In addition,” Shen says, “using the Intel C206 chipset also allows us to integrate two SATA 3.0 and four SATA 2.0 ports through two SATA controllers. The result is that WADE-8011 can provide an extremely fast, yet stable data storage solution. Plus, by utilizing Intel AMT 7.0 built into WADE-8011, we provide IT departments with a better way to discover, heal and protect their networked computing assets.
“Not only that,” Shen continues, “but our customers also benefit from the peace of mind they get from the long life cycle support inherent with every Portwell product.”
