CyberPower graphics PC
CyberPower on Wednesday released its high-spec graphics processing workstation, the Power Mega 1000. The headline specs of the PC include Intel's new 2.66GHz Core i7 processor set on an X58 Chipset SLI/CrossFireX-capable mainboard and NVIDIA's Quadro NVS 420 x16 PCIe graphics card, which is capable of driving up to four 30-inch displays. This can be achieved by connections on the card that are comprised of a dual DisplayPort/dual-link DVI port.
The Quadro card has 512MB of memory as well as a 11.2GB/sec memory bandwidth for each of its four effects cores. It supports CUDA to offload certain compatible processing tasks from the CPU.
Otherwise, the new CyberPower PC includes 6GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1TB SATA hard drive and a Blu-ray optical drive. The mainboard supports SATA RAID w/ eSATA connections along with 7.1-channel audio. CyberPower ships the system with Microsoft Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 as opposed to the newer Windows Vista operating system.
An Asetek liquid CPU cooling system is integrated into the PC and allows it to operate at just 20dB of noise, while power comes from a 580W power supply.
The Power Mega 1000 is available now, with pricing set at $1,469. [via PC Launches]
