  • thermal design power (TDP),
  • Once air passes through the HexPerf, it enters multiple channels guided by large diameter fans, ensuring cool air passes over key components, and warm air exits the system.
  • PC is a M93 ThinkCenter PC, the E32 is about $400 more. An i7 in the PC would provide Hyperthreading similar to the E32
  • ---24” 1920 x 1200, ---27 “2560 x 1440, ----30” 2560 x 1600
  • Top image is Point Cloud data imported into Revit 2014 … now, more detailed and up to 3x faster in displayBottom image has Anti-aliasing on (FSAA) which has no loss in performance but sharper, better lines … it’s what a graphics card should do … no more jaggies
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro K5000 4GB of memoryWhy – Supports the high end visualization needs, lighting effects, and animations for these applicationsCPU: •2x Intel®Xeon E5-2690 v2 (10C/3.0GHz/130W)Why? – Rendering needs cores and speed. This combination can process 20 threads, 40 with hyper-threading enabledMemory: 64 GB ECC memoryWhy? – this depends on model size, could vary. For best performance uses 4 GB DIMMs x 16 slotsStorage: 256GB 6Gb/s SSD, 1 TB Disk DriveWhy? – load OS and application on the SSD for quick performance, and store data on the disk drive for more expansionVisual: ThinkVision 30” LT3053p Monitor Why? – This is a very high resolution monitor, and screen space is an important productivity consideration. Some users will want 2.
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro K2000 2GB of memoryWhy – Supports the CAD visualization needs of 3D design. Those with large 3D models will want to upgrade to the NVIDIA Quadro K4000 3GB of memory.CPU: Intel® Xeon® E5-1660 v2 (6C/3.7GHz/130W)Why? – These applications are largely single threaded, and need the maximum in CPU performance. In addition many CAD applications provide rendering and analysis options so 6 cores will help with these tasks. Some cost conscious users will want to use the Xeon® E5-1620 v2 (4C/3.7GHz/130W) Memory: 16 GB ECC memoryWhy? – this depends on model size, could vary. 8 GB is the minimum. For large data sets use 4 GB DIMMs x 8 slots (32 GB Total)Storage: 256GB 6Gb/s SSD, 1 TB Disk DriveWhy? – load OS and application on the SSD for quick performance, and store data on the disk drive for more expansionVisual: ThinkVision LT2452p 24-inch IPS Monitor – QTY 2Why? – This is a very high resolution monitor and is needed for accurate design, and screen space is a very important productivity consideration. 2 24 inch monitors are less costly than 1 30 inch.
  • Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro 5000 4GB of memoryWhy – Supports GPU processing and display. Some users will want to add one or two Tesla K20 to get the maximum GPU performanceCPU: •2x Intel®Xeon E5-2690 v2 (10C/3.0GHz/130W)Why? – Simulation needs cores and speed. This combination can process 20 threads, 40 with hyper-threading enabled – Some users such as ANSYS users will want to match cores to licenses available, and change the core selection.Memory: 128 GB ECC memoryWhy? – this depends on application and could vary. For best performance uses 8 GB DIMMs x 16 slots to use the full memory bandwidth. We recommend a minimum of 4 GB per physical core for simulation.Storage: 256GB 6Gb/s SSD, 1 TB Disk Drive (Qty 2)Why? – load OS and application on the SSD for quick performance, and store data on the disk drive for more expansion. Some will want RAID configurationsVisual: ThinkVision LT2452p 24-inch IPS Monitor Why? – This is a very high resolution monitor and is needed for accurate design review.
  • DECISION MAKERS: IT MANAGERS, CAD Manager, Engineering ManagerINFLUENCERS: Architects, Lead engineers, Lead DesignerISV: Bentley , Autodesk, ANSYS, DEFINITIONS:CAD: Computer –aided DesignCAE; Computer-aided Engineering- - usually refers to analysis and simulationBIM: Building Information Modeling – life cycle of design
  • This is a very strong message, but we have the proof to back it up.Technology Business Research recently conducted a study of average warranty repair rates.Over a typical three year lifecycle, ThinkStations are 24% more reliable than Dell, and 16% more reliable than HP.
