September 26, 2019 Alix Paultre

SMART Embedded Computing announced the availability of the PCIE-7217 PCI Express card, featuring Intel’s Core i7 processor, along with Radeon RX Vega M graphics. Integrated with SMART EC’s MaxCore MC4100 high-performance server and running cloud gaming software such as that offered by Gamestream, the new PCIE-7217 add-in card will enable telecom/cable operators and hospitality providers to create branded gaming-as-a-service offerings for their customers.

The PCIE-7217 has been designed specifically to work in the 4U MaxCore MC4100 platform created by Artesyn Embedded Computing, taking advantage of special features such as a second connector for cable-free auxiliary power and integrated 1G Ethernet for a management network. The Intel Core i7-8705G’s dual-GPU architecture allows the SMART EC PCIE-7217 card to simultaneously service multiple gamers at different resolutions. Each processor complex has a dedicated M.2 for local storage of large game libraries, and an optional SSD can be soldered down for each processor to provide up to 512GB of memory.
