Ground Breaking AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processor Technology

This extremely powerful yet cost effective workstation is based upon AMD’s new high end, enthusiast grade Ryzen Threadripper technology. This single socket CPU takes full advantage of their Enterprise Grade AMD Naples CPU technology and brings it to the masses. This huge 4,094 pin processor is a game changer for the industry offering a competitive product to Intel’s latest Core i9 'Skylake-X' processors at a very competitive price.

Featuring up to 16 Cores and 32 Threads whilst maintaining a base clock speed of 3.4GHz and Precision Boosting to 4.0GHz under load. This is no small feat of engineering by AMD. The multi core nature of AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors offers serious benefits for multi-tasking workflows such as simulation and rendering over previous generations of AMD and Intel products. The high clock speed at the same time means that those who require single threaded performance such as 3D CAD Designers and those who use viewports in 3D Design software applications will find that the system is fast and responsive.

AMD haven’t stopped there, they have introduced a new package of technologies called SenseMI to their processors. SenseMI is intended to assist workstation users and deliver a faster, more responsive experience within their applications of choice.

Neural Net Prediction – This technology brings Artificial Intelligence directly onto the processor in an attempt to replicate the way humans think. As a result Threadripper processors can predict the fastest and most efficient route data can take through the CPU to execute a task, process or operation.

Smart Prefetch – AMD Ryzen Threadipper processors will actively learn the way you interact with your application and adapt to give you the most responsive experience possible. Over time it will learn which data packets are needed and when. It can then adjust the way it operates to make information available to itself even before your program tells the processor it is needed.

Precision Boost – Based on the systems cooling capabilities the processor will boost from its base clock speed to higher levels to increase performance. For example the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X has a base clock speed of 3.4GHz however, using the Precision Boost technology this will rise to 4.00GHz.

Extended Frequency Range (XFR) – The AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors will detect the WS-1160A’s high airflow design chassis and the high-end Corsair H100i dual 120mm radiator in our liquid cooling solution. This results in very cool operating temperatures which the AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors takes full advantage of by dynamically adjusting voltages and clock speed to give users higher performance than the stated Precision Boost limitations.

Pure Power – This technology helps keep your energy usage / bills down and as a result helps you to be more green when working. AMD achieve this by automatically detecting when it is possible to lower clock speeds without affecting Workstation performance. Using this information the system will dynamically adjust the processor clock speed and power consumption in the background without any noticeable performance drop to the user.

AMD Radeon Pro WX or NVIDIA Quadro Professional Graphics

The WS-1160A can take full advantage of the latest AMD Radeon Pro WX Graphics series or NVIDIA Quadro Graphics solutions. Combining your next generation AMD Ryzen Threadripper workstation with either of these professional ISV (Independent Software Vendor) certified graphics solutions ensures you will receive a fully optimised, stable and high performance solution for your professional application of choice.

AMD Radeon Pro WX – This graphics card range designed by AMD is targeted at Workstation users in an effort to meet the demands of designers and creators. Visual Effects workflows, games developers and scientific workflows are constantly challenge the limits of Workstation hardware. Radeon Pro WX series looks to meet these demands by taking advantage of their latest Polaris architecture delivering uncompromising 4K video decoding technology, large capacity GDDR5 memory and thousands of Streaming Processor Cores, all whilst utilising a power efficient 14nm FinFET manufacturing process.

AMD have also put huge efforts towards software compatibility offering not only a fully ISV certified platform for mainstream professional application such as Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk products, PTC Creo and many more… The Radeon Pro WX series is also fully compatible with open source software via GPUOpen. This close relationship of software and hardware ensures professional users a powerful, optimised and stable platform to deliver on their demanding workflows.

NVIDIA Quadro – This well-established Professional graphics range has been a reliable choice for Workstation users for many years. This extensive range offers the perfect graphics solutions from entry level low intensity workflows, right through to those requiring the bleeding edge GPU computing performance available today.

Due to NVIDIA’s close relationship with all major professional software vendors NVIDIA Quadro products are fully ISV certified and optimised to offer the very best experience to end users. Using NVIDIA’s own CUDA technology, software vendors have been able to accelerate their applications to take full advantage of the Quadro series compute capabilities. Whether you are a 3D CAD Design professional, work within visual effects, perform simulations/analysis or an Architect designing your next creation. NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics workstations are the perfect solution.

Turbo Charge Your Workstation With M.2 NVMe SSD Storage Solutions

Two key components for processing data and executing your applications processes to maintain a smooth stress free workflow is your CPU and Graphics. However they can only perform these tasks as quickly and they receive the information required. That is why at Workstation Specialists we advise users to use the very latest Samsung M.2 NVMe SSD technology.

This storage technology takes advantage of the PCIe lanes which offer extremely high bandwidth and quick direct communication channels to your processor. This results in a massive up to 3,500 MB/s read and up to 2,100 MB/s write performance. To put this in perspective this is around 29x faster than a traditional Hard Disk Drive and 6x faster than a SATA based Solid State Drive. This ensures your high performance AMD Ryzen Threadripper Processor and your Pro Graphics Solution are kept working and not waiting, giving you the very best return on your investment.

WS-1160A is Ideal For

The WS-1160A is a highly cost effective multi core workstation ideal for multi-threaded workflows. These include but not limited to 3D CPU based rendering, simulation and analysis workflows. That said the processors high clock speed of 3.5GHz at base and 4.00GHz with precision boost means this solution is no slouch when it comes to single threaded workflows either. This means that those working with viewports on visual 3D Content Creation applications such as Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk Revit, Autodesk inventor, Trimble SketchUp Pro, PTC Creo, McNeel Rhino and many more.. can also expect exceptional performance from the WS-1160A workstation.
