Powerful ATX Motherboard to Accelerate
Compute-intensive Workloads

The IMBA-R680 is released to respond to the growing demands for massive data processing and high-performance computing in the industrial market. Integrated with the robust, innovative 12th Gen Intel® processor, DDR5 memory and PCI Express Gen5 technology, this ATX motherboard can deliver a massive leap forward in performance for applications requiring larger computational power and superior graphics capabilities.

Innovative 12th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors (Alder Lake S)

The latest Intel processor technology is adopted in the IMBA-R680. The supported 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors come with up to 16 cores and 24 threads, and feature a new performance hybrid architecture, which combines performance-cores (P-cores) and efficient-cores (E-cores) on a single processor die. P-cores aims at enhancing IoT workload consolidation while at the same time E-cores can handle background task management and multitasking without affecting overall performance. With such a high computing performance and flexibility for heavier IoT workloads, the IMBA-R680 motherboard can help unleash IoT potential, boost AI capability and accelerate real-time processing.

DDR5 RAM Achieves Next Generation Performance

Bandwidth increase is a noticeable feature of the 5th-generation DDR. When compared to DDR4-3200 (the max. data rate of this predecessor), DDR5-4400 present the approximate performance increase of 1.75x. With four DIMM slots, the IMBA-R680 can be installed with up to 128GB 4400 MT/s DDR5 memory, delivering data transmission of unparalleled quality and reliability for data centers, AI or other high-speed computing applications.

Benefits of DDR5

Higher capacity & Faster transfer

Up to 128GB capacity & up to 4400MT/s transfer speed

Low power

Voltage lowered from 1.2V to 1.1V

Dual sub-channel

Two 32-bit independent channels, doubling the bandwidth

New PCI Express Gen5 Ready for
Higher Bandwidth and Future Upgrade

Adopting the latest generation of PCI Express standard, the IMBA-R680 equips a total of 7 PCIe slots to provide multiple high-bandwidth expansions for peripherals like graphics cards, SSD, capture cards or wireless cards. Three of them are connected directly with the CPU, bypassing the bottleneck between the CPU and chipset, and further reducing latency. PCIe 5.0 at 32 GT/s offers twice that transfer rate of the current PCIe 4.0 offering. It not only provides backwards compatibility but also capability for future upgrade when more advanced technologies are emerging.

Reliable RAID Storage Secures Data Processing

The IMBA-R680 offers four SATA 6Gb/s interfaces to expand storage capacity and enable fast data transfer. The equipped Intel R680E chipset provides reliable and high performance hardware RAID protection to back-up your media and critical information. You can configure through different RAID levels (RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10) to increase performance and/or provide automatic protection against data loss from drive failure.

Dual M.2 M Key for NVMe SSD

SSD features shock and temperature resistance, long lifetime and high stability. It is widely used in industrial applications to provide reliable data storage. Both of the equipped M.2 2242/80 M-key sockets come with PCI Express® Gen3 x4 bandwidth and support up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds, making them the perfect choice for installing NVMe SSD to provide fast data access in rugged environment.

Stunning 4K Resolution and Triple Display

The IMBA-R680 is integrated with Intel® UHD Graphics driven by Intel® Xe Architecture to deliver videos and images in stunning 4K resolutions. Triple independent display is supported via DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI™ and IEI iDPM interface. The iDPM interface supports diverse display modules, enabling users to add LVDS, eDP or VGA display interface upon requirements. Up to 4K@60 high-resolution support provides great benefits for applications that demand on-image resolution and color realism at the edge.

2.5GbE High-Bandwidth and Low-Latency Data Transmission

The two RJ45 LAN ports both provide 2.5GbE connectivity that gives an immediate boost to overall network performance and improves the bandwidth required at large-scale workloads. By connecting with a 2.5G network switch, it can form a solid, optimized infrastructure for the deployment of smart surveillance and AI recognition to deliver lightning-fast transmission speed between devices.

Abundant Connectivity Options for Additional Peripherals

12 USB Ports up to 10Gbps for More Possibilities

USB ports have become one of the most popular ports for computers to connect with peripherals in industrial applications. Its features in high transfer speed, power management and backward compatibility make USB an ideal option for a communication port. The IMBA-R680 is designed with 12 USB ports, allowing you to connect various devices with up to 10Gbps data transfer speed. The peripherals requiring high bandwidth such as high-resolution cameras, HIDs (human interface devices) and other edge IoT devices can all be connected through the reliable USB interfaces in providing better data collection and acquisitions.

6 COM Ports Bring Intelligence to Legacy

Over decades, serial ports are still extremely reliable for connecting industrial computers with legacy peripherals. The IMBA-R680 comes with six serial ports to connect to legacy factory machinery and devices, allowing enterprises to bring intelligence to legacy equipment without having to replace them. In addition, the RS-485 ports support Automatic Flow Control (AFC), which can ensure UART buffers are never overrun so data transmission between devices can be complete without the risk of losing data.
