Taipei, Taiwan, December 23, 2014 - IBASE Technology Inc. (TPEx: 8050), a world-leading manufacturer of IPC motherboards and systems, rolls out a new Mini-ITX motherboard adopting the Intel® Q87 chipset and the new generation of Intel® Core™ processors. The high-computing MI981 motherboard is designed to provide high performance and flexibility for functional expansions, and is ideal for applications in industrial control, factory automation, communications and gaming industries. 

By integrating the 4th Generation Intel® Core™ processors manufactured on 22nm process technology with 3-D tri-gate transistors, the MI981 provides more excellent computing and graphics performance and enhanced security over earlier platforms built with the 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ processors. High-end graphics capabilities can be experienced with the available display interfaces, including VGA CRT, DVI-D, LVDS and Display Port. TPM version 1.2 helps assure computer platform integrity and iAMT 9.1, when used with a software management application, allows remote system monitoring, upgrading and repairing. 

IBASE’s MI981 supports two DDR3-1600 SO-DIMM memory slots for a maximum capacity of 16GB. It provides advanced and essential I/O connections such as six USB 3.0, six USB 2.0, six serial ports, four SATA III ports and two Gigabit Ethernets. Adding expansion cards is made possible by two Mini PCI-E, one mSATA and one PCI-E(16x) slots. Last but not least, the MI981 features IBASE’s iSMART green technology with intelligent scheduler and power savings that offers better environmental performance.
