Boutique builder stretches beyond its gaming roots
CyberPowerPC is probably best known for its line of gaming systems comprised of off-the-shelf parts that you could otherwise buy yourself at places like Newegg and Amazon. However, don't cast the company as a one-trick pony. The boutique builder actually offers a variety of systems, and today CyberPowerPC introduced its new Power Mega Pro Series of workstation systems with professional graphics card options and choice of AMD or Intel inside.
Depending on your budget, you can configure a Power Mega Pro with anywhere from 8 processing threads all the way up to 40 threads (dual Intel Xeon E6-2690 v2 processors). While gaming isn't the goal here, a typical Power Mega Pro system should be adept at video editing and 3D design and rendering.
There are seven different baseline configurations to begin with, which start and end with the following configurations:
Power Mega Pro 2000 CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K Cooling: Liquid cooled CPU Memory: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866MHz Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K600 Motherboard: Intel Z97 Express Chipset HDD: 128GB SSD + 2TB HDD Chassis: NZXT H440 OS: Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit Starting: $1,299
Power Mega Pro 3D Modeling CPU: 2x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v2 Cooling: Liquid cooled CPUs Memory: 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1866MHz Graphics: Nvidia Quadro K5000 MB: ASUS Z9PE-D8 HDD: 500GB SSD + 2x 2TB 7200RPM HDD in RAID 1 Chassis: Corsair 900D OS: Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit Starting: $4,811
If you want to go with an AMD setup, pricing starts at $1,419 and includes an AMD FX-8320 processor, 16GB of DDR3-1866 RAM, AMD FirePro V5900 graphics card, Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 motherboard, 128GB SSD, 2TB HDD, NZXT H440 case, and Windows 8.1 Pro.
