Delivering Quality Intelligent Computing Systems
RX170Q
The RX170Qis equipped with the Intel® Q170 chipset and LGA1151 socket to support 6th or 7th generation Intel® Core™ i3, i5, and i7 processors, codenamed Kaby Lake and Skylakeas, well as Intel® Pentium® and Celeron® processors.

The RX170Qis is equipped with gold plated pins for its critical connectors such as memory, SATA, PCIe, power, M.2, and USB 3.0. Additionally, these connectors are locking type. This combination of gold plating and locking ensures superior high speed signal conductivity, wear and corrosion resistance in tough environments, and that critical connections stay connected. The RX170Qis also supports three independent displays as well as Intel® Active Management Technology 10 (Intel® AMT).

The RX170Qis is ideal for applications that require high reliability, higher system and graphics performance, and the ability to process multiple complicated tasks simultaneously. These applications include medical imaging systems, luggage x-ray scanning systems, industrial control and automation, robotics, test & measurement, and digital signal processing.
