The ultimate performance boost consolidated edge applications have been waiting for

congatec – a leading vendor of embedded and edge computing technology – announces the availability of new COM-HPC Client Computer-on-Modules based on high-end processor variants of the 13th Gen Intel Core processors. The launch expands the already available portfolio of high-performance COM-HPC modules with soldered processors to include the even more powerful socketed variants of this processor generation. The new conga-HPC/cRLS Computer-on-Modules in COM-HPC Size C form factor (120x160mm) address application areas that require especially outstanding multi-core and multi-thread performance, large caches, and enormous memory capacities combined with high bandwidth and advanced I/O technology. Target markets are performance-hungry industrial, medical, and edge applications utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), as well as all types of embedded and edge computing solutions with workload consolidation requirements for which congatec also supports real-time hypervisor technologies from Real-Time Systems.

"With currently up to 8 Performance cores in parallel to 16 Efficient cores, the socketed variants of the 13th Gen Intel Core processors empower our COM‑HPC modules to offer even more options for making edge computing more performant and efficient through workload consolidation," explains Jürgen Jungbauer, Senior Product Line Manager at congatec. IoT-connected systems have many tasks to process in parallel, and if OEMs do not want to realize this connectivity through adaptive systems, OEMs need to embed virtual machines into their solutions. The more cores a Computer-on-Module provides, the easier this becomes.

Major features that have been improved

The most remarkable improvement of the socketed 13th Gen Intel Core processors is the up to 34 % multi-thread and up to 4 % single-thread performance gain[1] as well as an impressive 25 % faster image classification inference performance[1], compared to 12th Gen Intel Core processors. The added DDR5-5600 support as well as an increased L2 & L3 cache on select variants contribute to even more outstanding multi-threaded performance. The computing core improvements of this performance hybrid architecture, which currently provides up to 8 Performance cores and 16 Efficient cores, are complemented by enhanced USB3.2 Gen 2×2 bandwidth of up to 20 Gigabit per second on the new congatec COM-HPC Size C Computer-on-Modules.

Application engineers can deploy the new COM-HPC Computer-on-Modules on congatec’s Micro-ATX Application Carrier Board (conga-HPC/mATX) for COM-HPC Client type modules to instantly capitalize on all the benefits and improvements of these new modules in combination with ultrafast PCIe connectivity.
