INTEL® CORE™ i - PROFESSIONAL GRAPHICS WORKSTATIONS



Workstations based on Intel’s latest Core i processors have the highest clock speeds of any processor available today. Now with plenty of cores and threads they make a very well-rounded system platform. They are also among the cheapest of Intel’s processor offerings suitable for professional workflows; making these systems exceptional value for money.


What sets Intel® Core™ i5 / i7 / i9 Workstations apart?

With the exceptional single threaded performance of up to 5.0GHz that these processors offer, the Intel® Core™ i Series are the fastest processors on the planet for single threaded workflows. They can also take advantage of Intel’s Turbo Boost technology to enhance clock speeds even further, and certain processors in the range can make use of Intel’s Hyper Threading technology to double the amount of simultaneous tasks the processor can perform at any given time.


Intel® Core™ i vs Intel® Xeon™

A very common yet incorrect view on Intel’s processor options is that Intel® Xeon™ is required for workstation use due to its increased reliability. Whilst there was some merit to this several years ago, today we have found that the failure rate between these types of processor are now very comparable.

You should also consider that Intel® Xeon™ Processors often cost more due to support for additional features such as ECC memory and additional cores & threads. For many professional workflows these often add overhead which reduces performance and increase costs. So if your workflow includes 3D CAD Design, Architectural Design, Video / Photo Editing or Games development within a 3D Creation Engine then the Intel® Core™ i CPU’s will be a high performing and cost effective selection for you.


NVIDIA and AMD Graphics Options Available

Intel® Core™ i5 / i7 / i9 based systems from Workstation Specialists offers users a wide selection of graphical options to suit your needs. From NVIDIA Quadro or AMD Radeon Pro WX professional ISV certified graphics for 3D CAD Design and Architectural workflows to NVIDIA GeForce options for Video / Photo Editing or Games Development workflows. There is a graphics options to suit all requirements and budgets.


High Speed Data Storage

Take advantage of the very latest NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive (SSD) technology to dramatically increase the performance and responsiveness of your system. These storage drives are many times faster than traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDD) making a noticeable reduction in Operating System & application load times and the general user experience of your workstation is improved greatly.

We recommend that users utilise a NVMe M.2 SSD configured as their primary drive containing their Operating System, applications and active project files with a secondary HDD for long term storage. HDD are much cheaper per GB therefore with this configuration you will receive maximum performance whilst still maintaining good value for money on your storage options.
