The UP Xtreme series meets 12th Generation Intel® Core™/Celeron® power with the release of the UP Xtreme i12 Edge.


(Taipei, Taiwan – January 18, 2023) AAEON, a leading manufacturer of AI development solutions, announces the UP Xtreme i12 Edge, its latest addition to the UP product series.

The UP Xtreme i12 Edge makes substantial upgrades on its predecessor with the power-efficient multicore architecture of 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i7/i5/i3/Celeron® Processors (formerly Alder Lake-P), onboard LPDDR5, and AI module support all contributing to its potential as a system suited to industrial, healthcare, and transport applications.

Providing exceptional expansion options, the UP Xtreme i12 Edge has four M.2 Keys for Wi-Fi 6, 5G, AI and PCIe 4.0 storage module support. With such options, users are able to bring edge AI computing capabilities to a wider variety of markets. Further, the UP Xtreme i12 Edge supports Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, Intel® DL Boost, and the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit, boosting GPU image classification inferencing performance by up to 2.81 times that of the previous generation.

Making use of its fanless 152mm x 123.8mm x 72.5mm chassis, the UP Xtreme i12 Edge is equipped with one USB 4.0, three USB 3.2, and three USB 2.0 ports, along with an Intel® i226-IT LAN port running at 2.5Gpbs with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). With such a combination, AAEON claim the system can achieve real-time data processing thanks to its onboard LPDDR5 system memory.

Its numerous I/O ports compliment the UP Xtreme i12 Edge’s display interface, which can support four simultaneous 4K displays via configurations of HDMI 2.0, DP 1.4a, and eDP 1.4b ports, further enhanced by Intel® Iris® Xe graphics. These features lead AAEON to believe the UP Xtreme i12 Edge will be a popular choice for smart retail and industrial automation solutions, particularly given its fanless chassis and 12~36V power input range.

The UP Xtreme i12 Edge is now in mass production and available for order, with prices dependent on SKU.
