When you think of “compact” or “small form factor”, it’s all too easy to make the leap to “weak” or “underpowered”, but AVADirect’s two new small systems are anything but. The company announced a compact gaming system and a workstation, and both systems pack a wallop. The Compact Gaming PC can be configured with an Intel Core i7-3930K or Core i7-3960K Extreme, up to 32GB of DDR3-1333MHz memory, up to two HDDs or SSDs, and up to a pair of graphics cards. The system also boasts a liquid cooling system and a chassis designed for easy portability. Compact Gaming PC Like the Compact Gaming PC, the Workstation PC features a six-core Intel... Read more...
"Making it rain" has never seemed so appropriate. Rain Computers has just introduced their new multimedia workstation, the Nimbus M2. It's detailed as a "powerhouse" for audio and video production, which -- we guess -- could end up making you enough cash to seriously make it rain. This is the follow-up to the original Nimbus, replete with a 6-core processor, NVIDIA Quadro 600 Workstation Video Card and 8GB or 16GB of memory right out of the box. The Nimbus M2 is built, in part, on the success of the Phenom II X6 6-Core processor developed by AMD, as well as 32GB of memory, an external HDD bay and a new cooling system developed by NZXT that combines modular cooling fans with advanced acoustic...

It has been a while since we last evaluated a workstation-class graphics card from the FirePro product line. The V9800 launched in September 2010 and was officially the last card to sport the ATI logo. Since then, AMD has released its Cayman-based Radeon HD 6900 cards for the consumer market, among many other Radeon HD 6000 series cards. It was only a matter of time before the new architecture made its way into the professional FirePro line. Today we'll be looking at a couple of new AMD FirePro models, specifically, the V7900 and V5900. A quick glace below outlines some of the important specifications of each model. With the AMD FirePro V7900, professional users are treated to 1280 stream... Read more...
Tired of consumers having all of the fun? Take a stand, Mr. Corporate! Dell's tickling their business side this week with the introduction of the new Precision M4600 and M6600, described as the world's most powerful 15.6" and 17.3" workstations. The company's also using this chance to debut the R5500 rack-mount workstation, which delivers similar horsepower in a machine that can easily be stowed away in a network control room. The two laptops come a decade after Dell launched their first-ever mobile workstation, and they'll ship with second-gen Core i7 processors and 1600MHz system memory options. These are also pretty darn slick given the horsepower and rigidity, with room for up to 32GB of... Read more...

We never put a whole lot of thought into the name of Maingear's SHIFT "personal supercomputer," but the machine sure is shifting with the tides of technology. This morning, Maingear revamped the SHIFT with the addition of Intel's newest Xeon processors, the X5687 and X5690.

Here at Hot Hardware, we've learned not to always believe claims of "portability." There are some 17" and 18.4" notebooks, which are technically portable, but hardly "mobile." But the truth remains: having a giant notebook like that is still more mobile than carrying around a tower, a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse. And so, there's now the question of mobility with workstations. Is is truly possible to condense a workstation like we have condensed gaming machines? Next Computing thinks we can. The company has just released their Radius workstation, a PC tower with an LCD infused in the same. This means that all you'll need is a keyboard/mouse, as your monitor and system are all-in-one. The genius... Read more...
We've talked about AMD's server roadmap on multiple occasions this year while simultaneously covering the company's ramp of its FirePro graphics cards. With all the Bobcat, Llano, and Bulldozer chatter, the quiet passing of AMD's workstation offering has gone all but unnoticed. That, at least, is the argument from John Peddie Research, which chronicles the decline of AMD's efforts in this sphere even as it aggressively ramps its professional GPU products. We wouldn't be surprised if AMD struck a different tone with regard to its workstation business, but the company's own website lists just two entries under "Workstation Products:" Professional Graphics and AMD FireStream Processors. Opteron... Read more...
Wow, a new Mac computer without any fanfare from Apple? That's odd. But this whole situation is an unusual one. Let's start with the departed. Apple has offered a rack-mount Xserve Mac OS X server system for a handful of years now, but they have always felt like an oddball. Apple's not really in the enterprise business, and it was one of just a few enterprise products offered by the company. Now, with their consumer products doing so well, it seems that Apple is shifting their focus. The Xserve has just been killed, with the final sales set to occur at the end of January 2011. So if you want an OS X rack-mount server, you better get it within the next couple of months. The good news is that Apple... Read more...
If you're an AutoCAD or 3ds Max user, you'll find this information out of AMD today to be very interesting. ATI's FirePro application support team have devised a way to drastically increase the performance of FirePro or FireGL workstation graphics cards when running AutoCAD or 3ds Max. AMD has just released a set of performance plug-ins designed to provide additional optimizations for AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2011, 3ds Max 2010, and 3ds Max 2011. With these plug-ins, ATI claims their "FirePro graphics cards offer more than double the performance over comparable consumer graphics cards." AMD claims users can expect significant improvements in visual quality as well. Plug-ins for... Read more...

As summer winds down, the professional graphics market, it appears, is just starting to heat up. About a month ago, we tested the Fermi based Quadro 6000 and 5000 graphics cards from NVIDIA. Although they were a few months late to the party, our results revealed the Quadro models held a measurable performance advantage over ATI's then flagship product, the FirePro V8800. But as expected, the red team has stepped their game up by offering a new workstation card that looks to close the gap while offering multi-monitor support that NVIDIA can't match currently. The FirePro V9800 offers similar features found in the V8800 we reviewed in April : Cypress GPU, 1600 stream processors, 147.2 GB/s memory... Read more...
Not long ago, we reviewed the entire FirePro workstation graphics card lineup from ATI. With the V8800, our testing revealed considerable performance gains over the previous generation V8750, coupled with a lower price point. Surely, that's a combination that consumers can appreciate, especially for those looking to upgrade sooner, rather than later. But, at the time, the market was not yet settled as we anxiously awaited a response to ATI's FirePro products from NVIDIA. Thankfully, the wait is over as the launch of a new series of professional graphics cards from NVIDIA based on the company's Fermi architecture has just arrived and we've got the high-end Quadro 6000 and Quadro 5000 cards in-house...
