The WS-X141 Frequency Enhanced workstation platform for extreme professional application users. The WS-X141 is a supremely fast quad core workstation powered by an in-house frequency enhanced, 6th Generation 64Bit Core i7 Skylake-S processor from Intel.
Why Enhance the Frequency of a Workstation?
Designed to enhance the speed and performance of single threaded workflows commonly found in software applications (3D CAD, CAM, Design & Modelling like Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor, SOLIDWORKS, Catia, Creo, SolidEdge, Advanced Steel and many more...). The WS-X141 delivers the fastest software experience available on today’s market. Enabling users to work with even the most complex 3D datasets and CAD assembly files comfortably.
How we Achieve a Dramatic Increase in Performance
Specialising in the very latest technology available in today’s market, our first consideration is selecting the very best components for the maximum performance and stability possible, rather than focusing on lowest budget. By ensuring we select the very best components possible that offer good value, great performance and longevity whilst giving an excellent return of investment due to increased productivity and reduced down time.
6th Generation Intel Core i7 'Skylake-S' CPU Architecture
After we have selected and configured high quality components we move on to the next stage of enhancing the workstation. We achieve this through a process known as professional CPU overclocking. The result of this procedure is to push the performance of the Core i7 Processor beyond the standard levels. This removes the bottlenecks of performance in single threaded workflows, dramatically speeding up the responsiveness of professional applications such as SOLIDWORKS, 3DS Max, Revit, etc...
Is it Less Reliable?
Intel has for many years provided CPU's with the ability and headroom to allow for overclocking. These processors can be identified with a ‘K’ or ‘X’ in the Intel Model SKU. Our WS-X141 takes advantage of the Intel Core i7 6700K processor, the very best 4 core 8 thread processor available today for overclocking. Our professional engineers, with over 15 years of experience frequency optimising workstations are able to achieve a stable 4.5GHz clock speed across all cores. To ensure stability and reliability all our enhanced WS-X141 Workstations go through a strict process of 48 hours stress testing and followed by stringent Quality Assurance checks. Finally our WS-X range is covered by the same 3 years full parts and labour warranty as all Workstation Specialists Systems.
Does it Create More Noise?
Volume levels are a key consideration when our workstation are configured. Whilst in a professional office environment it is not appropriate, acceptable or helpful to have noisy machinery disrupting the work place. We ensure that the optimum combination of chassis and cooling system are selected to achieve maximum airflow to the CPU for cooling, whilst keeping the noise level no higher than our standard, none frequency enhanced Workstations.
Also Featuring ISV Certified Professional Graphics
To complement the increased processor performance the Workstation Specialists WS-X141 Workstation supports industry leading professional graphics from the Nvidia Quadro and AMD FirePro Range. Designed and built from the ground up to cater for the professional market these graphics cards have achieved independent software vendor (ISV) certification from most professional software applications. This ensure maximum stability, reliability and optimised performance to get the most from your investment.

- Great machine, great performance, great service Review by Matt
Build Quality Performance Turnaround Time Likely To Recommend Overall Experience
Unfortunately the front dust cover detaches at the slightest knock (not great if the unit is on the floor under a desk) and on an aesthetics note with a drive bay occupied with a DVD drive its not the nicest thing to look at - I think the older WS case with solid screen printed front was much better.
We chose NVIDA over AMD GPU on these builds, Running SolidWorks 2015 with a benchmark score of 44.1 overall.
Ordered and delivered within a week for a reasonable price - I'll be buying more. (Posted on 08/07/2016)
