About Us

Armari, our early history

We started out building custom gaming and game development PCs back in 1994. As the focus has always been on using the best high-end components, we quickly got into building workstations. The first workstations featured Intel’s Plato motherboard and a single core Pentium 90MHz CPU. The demand for our professionally built workstations for games development and 3D professionals began to outpace the gaming machines in the early 2000’s. The year 2000 is also when we entered the HPC market, building Linux clusters consisting of hundreds of servers, 3 of these systems entered the TOP500 fastest machines in the world. In 2012 we designed our first fully bespoke Dual Xeon workstation, the X100, and in 2013 we started our OEM business, designing appliance servers for customers under their own brand.

Our many years experience of building review topping, high end workstations has only gone from strength to strength. In 2020 during the height of the pandemic, our inhouse designed flagship Magnetar X64T FWL workstation broke the world workstation performance record, smashing the previous SpecWorkstation™ 3 benchmark results, thanks to its Armari custom cooled and tuned 64-core AMD Threadripper processor running all-cores up to 4.1GHz sustained, making it the fastest production workstation on the market for 3D Content creators.
