Changing the World of Computing Forever

As important as computers have become in our homes and offices, the reality is that they are also quite limiting.

In fact, most computers are designed to help us do one or two things quite well — like word processing, number crunching, creating or watching videos, surfing the Internet or sending email. Otherwise, that's it.

Unfortunately, the ongoing rush of technological advancements means that our computers are out-of-date the moment we begin using them. Until finally — 2, 3, 4 years later — it's time to buy a replacement machine, and we start the process all over again.

Such built-in obsolescence is not only frustrating, but it's very expensive and not very good for the environment either. If only there was a way to break out of this cycle. Thankfully there is.

Introducing Xi3 Corporation.

Xi3 Corporation is empowering everyone to take control of their technological lives with the Xi3® Computer Architecture: An elegant new approach to technology that utilizes building block-like modularity to allow us to create new types of computers, as well as easily transform existing Xi3 Modular Computers with new capabilities and functionality.

Xi3 Corporation is charged with taking the Xi3 Modular™ Computer and related Xi3 Computer Architecture products throughout the world.

Although the Xi3 Modular Computer runs x86-based operating systems and applications, comparisons to standard PCs end there.

The Power of Modularity.

The first thing people notice about Xi3 Modular Computers is their small, cube-like shape — approximately 4-inches or less per side on the outside. And yet, the soft finish surface of the extruded aluminum casing and the chrome-plated honeycomb-shaped endcaps evoke feelings of a finely tuned racecar.

But good looks alone mean nothing without true power under the hood, and the Xi3 Modular Computer delivers here as well, both today and for years to come. Central to the power, functionality and capabilities of the Xi3 Modular Computer is the fact that the Xi3 Computer Architecture breaks the traditional mold of a computer motherboard by subdividing it into three separate but interconnected modules:
  • The Xi3 Processor Module,
  • The Primary I/O Module, and
  • The Secondary I/O Module.
The Xi3 Processor Module contains the microprocessor, RAM and Northbridge chip of the Xi3 Modular Computer. Conversely, the Primary I/O Module handles the majority of external communications and contains the Southbridge chip within the Xi3 Modular Computer, while the Secondary I/O Module is responsible for power and video management.

By separating different computing functions onto three distinct boards, the Xi3 Computer Architecture allows us to easily, simply and inexpensively update, upgrade, modify, replace and repair Xi3 Modular Computers. And it really is simple: Remove 4 screws, slide out the 3 interconnected modules, remove the module in question and replace it with a new one, put it all back together, plug it in and turn it on.

As a result, our computers no longer are limited to a likely shelf-life of 3-5 years, but instead can be expected to have a useful life of 6, 8, even 10 years, merely by replacing outdated gear with the latest and greatest technology advancements. And you can do so at a fraction of the cost to purchase a new machine.

The Green Benefits.

Not buying a new computer every 3, 4 or 5 years has other benefits too.

For one, it means that we get to significantly decrease the amount of eWaste polluting our planet because one Xi3 Modular Computer can fill the lifetime role of two or three traditional computers.

Additionally, the Xi3 Modular Computer only needs 20 Watts of electricity to operate versus the standard of 100 to 400 Watts for most personal computers. This is clearly a huge benefit, both to the environment and to our pocketbooks.

Beyond the Xi3 Modular Computer, however, Xi3 Corporation is also taking its Z3RO Pro Computer to market — an even smaller, low-profile and low-power device that's a complete desktop computer — even though it's about the size of a paperback book.

At roughly 15 Watts of power per Z3RO Pro Computer, electricity savings alone mean that whether a customer goes with X5A Modular Computers, Z3RO Pro Computers, or a combination thereof, Xi3 computers can pay for themselves in less than 3 years.

Xi3 Corporation — Elegant Modularity Empowering You.

The Xi3 Modular Computer and related Xi3 Computer Architecture products create a whole new way of approaching computing.

We can now decide how long we want our computers to last and what functions we want to perform with them. If we decide that we'd really like to upgrade our computer's capabilities, doing so is now easier than ever before — through Xi3 Corporation.

The fact is that we can take such smart steps and save ourselves money in the process because we buy less often to accomplish the same tasks. And we have the additional benefit of saving even more money because we use less energy to run these machines.

On top of this, we also create less harm to the environment by choosing computing technology from Xi3 Corporation, creating another added benefit everyone can enjoy.

We at Xi3 Corporation invite you to learn more about our elegant modular approach to computing and how modular computers can change the way you think about, and use, technology.
