They say the best things come in small packages and the Magnetar® M16 is no exception. Designing our own workstation chassis has allowed us to re-think the internal layout and remove inefficient spaces that have historically made PC workstations so bulky. What we achieved is a full specification Single Xeon E5v2 workstation that makes no compromises in spec, performance, ease of upgrade or noise levels, but fits into a 43 x 44 x 22cm profile.

The high quality Japanese steel frame is finished with lightweight brushed Aluminium side panels, making the M16 both strong and elegant. Hot Swappable Hard drives, Power supplies and thumb screw side panel access means working on the M16 is a dream for users and system administrators alike.

Our M16-AW1200R workstation has been designed to support up to 4 GPU Co-processors, including:
NVIDIA TESLA C2075 (Fermi)
AMD FirePro W8000/W9000

Being smaller than a typical microATX midi-tower PC, did not prevent us designing in the industry leading SPX cooling technology from our bigger X16 workstation series. Not only does this keep the M16 workstation running very cool and quiet, it also enables some unique performance features, which are the envy of our competitors.

Turbo Always On - is a feature of our Magnetar workstation range which allows Intels Xeon E5v2 processors to stay in Turbo mode all the time - which means a big performance advantage for users!
(Turbo mode is a feature built into Intel Xeon E5v2 processors and typically allows the processor to run at higher clock frequencies for limited bursts of time. Due to the thermal demands of Turbo mode, this is typically limited to periods of around 10 second on standard systems and then only following periods of low processor utilisation)

For example, during a full multi-threaded 3D render, a 2.20GHz Xeon E5-2660v2 processor will maintain 2.6GHz on all 10-cores for the duration of the render, even if it takes days. This is a 400MHz advantage and reduces rendering time by 18%.
Our Turbo Always On feature is not overclocking, but a feature enabled by our SPX cooling system which keeps the processors running up to 30 degrees cooler than standard cooling methods. The SPX cooling system not limited by wattage so the very high end E5-2697v2 12-Core Xeon processors run at 3.0GHz vs. 2.7GHz under full load.
