If you’re a business looking to give your mobile warriors a truckload of power in a portable package, Hewlett-Packard is delivering in spades with the new ZBook Studio mobile workstation. The company says that this is the world’s first quad-core workstation available in an ultrabook form-factor. The ZBook Studio features a sleek machined aluminum and die-cast magnesium body that weighs 4.4 pounds and measures just 18mm thin. Inside, you’ll find plenty of high-end hardware including your choice of Skylake-based Intel Core i7 or Xeon processors and support for up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 ECC RAM. A variety... Read more...
NVIDIA today launched a new batch of mobile Quadro GPUs for professionals who need desktop-class power while out in the field. There are six new Quadro parts in all, including the M5000M, M4000M, M3000M, M2000M, M1000M, and M600M, all of which are based on NVIDIA's mighty Maxwell architecture. According to NVIDIA, these new GPUs are up to twice as fast and energy efficient as their Kepler-based predecessors. Mobile workstations that use them pack nearly the same performance punch as desktop workstations, which means professionals can plow through the same complex and resource-intensive applications...

Lenovo expanded its ThinkPad line this week with the ThinkPad P Series of mobile workstations. The new line will include Lenovo’s highest-performing ThinkPad mobile workstations, edging the ThinkPad W series out of that spot. We had good things to say about the ThinkPad W series in our recent review, so we’re looking forward to kicking the tires on the ThinkPad P line and seeing how it measures up. One new feature that’s bound to get some attention is the Intel Xeon E3-1500M v5 processor.“We’ve built features into these machines that were previously unachievable in a notebook, making them the most...

This is a good year for creative professionals that are constantly on the go. After watching the corporate world trot around with thin and light notebooks that sport bleeding-edge hardware and touchscreens, the content creation and workstation set is finally getting to enjoy features in their notebooks that many others take for granted. Lenovo in particular has pumped up its workstation line with a slick ultrabook that is loaded for bear. Lenovo even heeded the complaints of some critics and reviewers (including ours) about the workstation line’s touchpad and gave it a complete overhaul on... Read more...
NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture has already torn up the gaming world, thanks to cards like the GeForce GTX Titan X and the GeForce GTX 980. NVIDIA recently took time to bring that same Maxwell goodness over the workstation market as well and the result is the new Quadro M6000, NVIDIA's new highest-end workstation platform. Like the Titan X, the M6000 is based on the full-fat version of the Maxwell GPU, the G200. Also, like the GeForce GTX Titan X, the Quadro M6000 has 12GB of GDDR5, 3072 GPU cores, 192 texture units (TMUs), and 96 render outputs (ROPs). At first glance, the M6000 may seem like a...

NVIDIA released its Quadro M6000 at last week's GPU Technology Conference, but interestingly, it was without much fanfare. Perhaps that has something to do with the card belonging to the professional market and NVIDIA doesn't feel the need to trumpet in a new release, but this thing deserves that. As the "M" in its name implies, this is a Maxwell-based Quadro - the first of its kind. Just as with the desktop GeForce series, the move from Kepler to Maxwell on Quadro offers a slew of benefits, from improved general performance (in some cases up to 2.5x) to increased power efficiency. Specs-wise,... Read more...
The folks at BOXX are no strangers to crafting some of the world's most advanced workstation PCs, but its latest APEXX 5 still somehow manages to kick things up a notch. This might be a good time to rest your fist under your jaw, because your salivary glands might get overly excited. The "5" in the APEXX 5 name represents the fact that five GPUs can be installed, which at the current time would be composed of a Quadro K2200 dedicated to viewport duties, and four Tesla K40s to handle computation. A wide-range of other GPU configurations exist, but that's the only one that utilizes 5 GPUs. Want 4x... Read more...
NVIDIA has unveiled its new line of Quadro GPUs for professional use. The Quadro line consists of five GPUs – the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620, and K420 that targets designers, artists, and scientists in the professional field. “The next generation of Quadro GPUs not only dramatically increases graphics and compute performance to handle huge data set,” said NVIDIA vice president of professional visualization. “It extends the concept of visual computing from a graphics card in a workstation to a connected environment. The new Quadro lineup lets users interact with their designs... Read more...
It has been almost two years since AMD launched the FirePro W9000 and kicked off a new battle in the workstation GPU wars. Today, we're reviewing the company's FirePro W9100 -- a new card based on the same Hawaii-class GPU as the desktop R9 290 and R9 290X, but aimed at the workstation market and professional consumers. Does AMD's new card have what it takes to seize the professional performance crown? The W9100 is a full Hawaii GPU with 2,816 stream processors, 320GB/s of memory bandwidth, and six mini-DisplayPorts, all of which support DP1.2 and 4K output. It carries more RAM than any other AMD... Read more...

Lenovo announced its latest workstation, the ThinkStation E32, and despite very solid specs, the machines cost far less than you might expect. Available in both traditional tower and SFF form factors, the ThinkStation E32 starts at a mere $729. For what is presumably a lot more money than $729 (the HP Z1 workstation PC we reviewed is $1.899 for example), you can configure a ThinkStation E32 with up to Intel Xeon E3-1200v3 processors, NVIDIA Quadro K4000 graphics, 32GB of 1600MHz ECC RAM, and three storage drives--a 3TB SATA HDD, 256GB SSD, and 128GB mSATA. Other configurations are available with... Read more...
Mainstream All-In-One PCs have become increasingly more popular in recent years, but AIO workstations remain a rare breed. After all, workstations typically require more horsepower than your average AIO, and IT folks demand better access to a computer’s internals than most ordinary AIOs allow. That makes HP’s Z1 workstation all the more attractive perhaps: it’s meant to give you the power and access of your big workstation box in a small footprint, with no (or few) compromises... That quad-core processor featured in the system is an Intel Xeon E3-1245v2... The CPU runs its four... Read more...

For nearly three years, Nvidia's Quadro line has relied on GF100 hardware. These cards, based on the original Fermi / GTX 480 architecture, have grown increasingly long in the tooth. NV launched new high-end parts a year ago, with the K6000 and K5000, but left the other cards mostly alone. Today, that changes. The Quadro K4000, K2000, 2000D (the same card, but with dual-DVI instead of DVI + DisplayPort, and K600 are the new entrants in the Quadro line, replacing the 4000, 2000, and 600 respectively. The upgrades are significant. The K4000 is a 768-core GPU with 3GB of DDR5 and an 80W TDP, as compared... Read more...
