A Modern-Day, Xeon Micro Workstation
You can tailor a custom workstation in an infinite number of ways, but our goal today is to build a device offering powerful performance and strong 3-D rendering capabilities in a small, elegant package that remains cool and quiet, but also looks nothing like your typical tower workstation.
That’s right, we’re taking the performance of a Xeon processor usually found packed into 1U racks or large towers and bringing it to a stylish, small-format system. We could go the Intel Core route, of course, but would it really be a workstation then?
Featuring four cores of compute power running at 3.8 GHz with a turbo rate of 4.2 GHz, the Xeon E3-1275 v6 offers more than enough punch for a desktop workstation and supports up to 64GB of DDR4 or DDR3L ECC memory. It comes with built-in graphics capabilities too, but we are forgoing them in favor of beefier 3-D graphics.
