3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor Family Delivers Cutting-Edge Performance to the PXI Platform

Version 2

    With the release of Intel® processors in 2008, the 45 nm process technology added many features to the Intel® Core™ processor family. As process technology evolves, National Instruments is taking advantage of the latest 22nm 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors to deliver performance improvements and new features to PXI, which many test and measurement applications require.


    The 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, code-named “Ivy Bridge”, is based on the world’s first 22 nm process technology and offers many key features such as Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and SuperSpeed USB 3.0. The combination of Intel’s cutting-edge 3D Tri-Gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements provides significant processing performance,compared with Intel’s previous generation of chips, and delivers many new benefits to PXI applications. This white paper, co-written by National Instruments and Intel Corporation, explores the features of the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors and their impact on test, measurement, and control applications.
