The Magnetar® X18 is our full sized technically advanced single processor workstation. Developed in-house and pulled from our experience of building professional workstations since 1994, the Magnetar® X18 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 Launch of the Haswell-E and EP processors as well as the rapid evolution of GPU computing, we realised there was simply nothing available that could bring all these technologies togther in a single system that really worked.
The Magnetar® X18 brings outstanding computing power and a quiet and compact chassis that imposes no limitation for future expansion.

The custom cooling system inside the AW1600H4-GPU has been designed to run a Core i7 Processor at an enhanced clock speed with complete stability.
Actualy speed is dependant on processor model and silicon quality.

Key features:
High performance single Intel Gen4 Core i7 6-core/8-core or single Intel Xeon E5 4 to18-Core processor. Up to 4 High end GPUs including NVIDIA TESLA, Quadro,Titan X, GeForce GTX or AMD FirePro, Radeon cards. An unprecedented number of storage drives can be fitted internally and by designing universal drive sleds the Magnetar chassis supports both 3.5inch and 2.5inch hard drives plus SSDs and all can be made hot-swap on a drive by drive basis. Even when running a tuned Core i7, the custom cooling system inside the X18 is unphased and maintains a low noise level under sustained load.
