Intel® G41 Express Chipset for Embedded Computing: Brief

The Intel® G41 Express Chipset provides an ideal price/performance solution for embedded computing applications needing HD video playback and 3D graphics. When combined with the Celeron® processor E3400 or E1500 this platform enables media-intensive embedded applications such as retail and transaction solutions—point-of-service, ATMs,... kiosks, digital signage, transaction terminals—, gaming machines and medical appliances.

The chipset consists of the Intel® 82G41 Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7. The GMCH includes the next-generation Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500 (Intel® GMA X4500) with built-in support for smooth high-definition video playback without the need for add-in video cards or decoders. Intel GMA X4500 comes with Intel® Clear Video Technology, which enhances the visual experience with a combination of video-processing hardware and software technologies. The chipset also delivers optimized 3D graphics performance and support for Microsoft DirectX* 10, Shader Model* 4.0 and OpenGL* 2.0.

Product Highlights
