The Magnetar® S18X Workstation supports the latest Intel Core X-Series Processor in our award winning G2 Workstation chassis. Supporting DDR4-2666MHz memory, next generation PCI Express SSDs and new Pro graphics solutions from AMD and NVIDIA, performance levels of this single socket system can now easily out perform previous generation dual socket workstations.
Developed in-house and pulled from our experience of building professional workstations since 1994, the Magnetar® S-Series chassis has been designed completely from the ground up. Not limited by an off the shelf generic gaming or server chassis, has allowed us to design a solution that is directly focused on workstation and next generation technologies. With the rapid evolution of GPU computing in Media production, we realised even our entry level workstation need to properly support modern GPUs and address their cooling requirements.A secure transit bar prevents shipping damage of heavy GPUs.
The Magnetar® S18X delivers outstanding computing performance in a quiet and compact chassis with surprising good expansion.The high quality Japanese steel frame is finished with lightweight black Aluminium side panels.
