BCM Advanced Research
Delivering Quality Intelligent Computing Systems
* EOL Notice: THE BC57Q IS ON THE PHASE-OUT LIST. BCM will continue to accept orders for the BC57Q through December 15, 2012 for the BC57Q.  At BCM’s discretion, last time buy orders may be scheduled to ship through June 15, 2013 with a non-cancellable and non-returnable (NCNR) PO. For details please download Official EOL Notice [PDF]
The BC57Q is based on the Socket H1 LGA1156 with the Intel® Q57 Express Chipset architecture. This is a new revolutionary Single-chip design which is a follow-on to the traditional two-chipsets solution by integrating the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and the memory controller into the Intel® Core™ i7, i5 and i3 desktop processors while combining the other functionality of the North and South bridges into one single Controller Hub. This repartition of the processors and chipsets has a new platform terminology called the Platform Controller Hub (PCH), providing a Turbo Boost feature and Hyper-Threading technology that enables greater performances and system improvements over the previous generations.
