Nashua, N.H. – NextComputing, a leader in high-performance portable and small form-factor workstations and servers, announces a new solution for CAD users looking for a powerful workstation computer to run their demanding applications, but have been dissatisfied with the limited options available in laptops. The Radius LE portable system offers workstation-class performance in a compact, all-in-one chassis that is suited for everyday office use, but can be easily transported when users need to work remotely.
Configured for engineers and designers running computing-intensive 3D CAD software, the diminutive Radius LE workstation takes up no more desktop real-estate than a notebook computer, yet offers the features professional users need to work quickly and efficiently, including:
- Quad-Core Intel® Core™ i7 2.80 GHz processor
- ATI FirePro™ graphics with up to 2GB GDDR5 memory
- Integrated 17-inch high-resolution (1920x1200) display
- 8GB DDR3 high-speed memory
- 1TB total internal storage
- Extensive I/O including USB 3.0 and 2.0, eSATA, Gigabit Ethernet, and integrated audio
AMD's ATI FirePro™ workstation graphics cards offer a number of advantages for CAD users. For example, a long list of certifications from major software vendors including Autodesk, Dassault Systémes, and Siemens PLM software, ensure that the drivers are tuned to get the most performance possible from the graphics engine.
In addition, ATI EyeFinity™ technology offers expansive multi-display desktop configurations, with the ability to power three high-resolution displays from a single graphics card. The Radius LE supports EyeFinity with up to two of NextComputing's, lightweight clip-on displays that can be mounted to the front and back of the unit for easy transport.
The Radius LE solution with ATI FirePro graphics is available now from NextComputing. Special pricing is available through January 14th, 2010. Systems start at $3,450.
