Professional ISV Certified Graphics Workstation

If you simply buy any computer your applications may run but this isn’t enough in today’s world. Workstations have become essential components to business workflows and as a result you may be wondering what ISV certification is and what it means to you? Simply put it means your peace of mind. You can feel confident of the stability, reliability and performance optimisations between your workstation’s graphical components and the software applications, as they have been through hours of Independent Software Vender (ISV) testing. This ensures your workstation will deliver the very best user experience and in the unlikely event you should run into an issue not only will we help to resolve your problem, but the Software Vender and Graphics card manufacturer will also do all in their power to find you a solution.

Virtual Reality Ready Graphics Workstation

With Virtual Reality becoming an ever more prominent part of professional workflows, rest assured knowing that the WS-160 is fully VR Ready. This workstation combined with the latest graphics technology from NVIDIA or AMD is fully capable of delivering the graphical performance and clarity to fully immerse you in a virtual world. Whether you plan to combine your workstation with a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset the WS-160 is ready to go.

More Cores and Threads in Intel’s 8th Core i7 Processors

Intel’s most popular processors, the socket 1151 based Core i7 has made a big step forward over previous generations. What has been a staple 4 Core 8 Thread processor type for many generations has now increased to 6 Cores and 12 Threads in their 8th Generation Coffee Lake variant. This is a significant 50% increase in cores and threads giving you an impressive performance boost in multi core workflows such as rendering. The single threaded performance has not suffered however, at up to 3.7GHz base frequency and a massive 4.7GHz Max Turbo Boost. This processor remains the perfect solution for your 3D CAD Design applications.

High Speed NVMe Solid State Drive Storage

We recommend configuring your system with an M.2 NVMe based storage drive to take your system responsiveness to new levels. Your operating system, applications and models load in the blink of an eye when installed on these types of storage drives. By taking full advantage of PCIe lanes which is the same technology used by your Graphics card, NVMe based Solid State Drive can deliver 5x speed up over SATA based alternatives.
