AVADirect, the boutique system builder based in Ohio, is now offering Supermicro FatTwin 4U server solutions with up to Intel Octa-Xeon processing and dedicated GPU options. The FatTwin uses a four-blade form factor that can be stuffed with high-end hardware, depending on what you're trying to accomplish. According to AVADirect, the FatTwin is adept at a number of different tasks, including complex calculations, video rendering, 3D modeling, simulation, multi-virtual machine environments, hosting, and more.
The braggadocios system builders at AVADirect are hooting and hollering about being the first vendor in the U.S. of A. to offer Clevo's P375SM gaming laptop, a powerhouse machine built around Intel's new HM87 chipset for Haswell. Pricing starts at just shy of two grand for the 17.3-inch notebook equipped with an Intel Core i7 4700MQ processor, though there are plenty of upgrade options at your disposable if you have too much cash in your pockets weighing you down.
Bringing a bit of peace and quiet to the workstation.
Quiet computing is an art form that isn't easily mastered, but once achieved, you'll wonder how you ever managed to tolerate a roaring PC. AVADirect claims you won't have to with its whisper quiet workstation configurations. There are two models to choose from, one with a single Xeon processor and other with two Xeon parts inside, both of which have been carefully constructed to keep a low noise profile.
The latest workstation from AVADirect is packing some serious horsepower.
AVADirect, a boutique system builder based in Ohio, sent word to us today that it's now offering a new workstation build configurable with up to two Xeon E5 eight-core processors and a whopping 512GB of RAM installed into 16 DIMM slots. At the heart of this monster system is the Asus Z9PE-D16/2L motherboard with optional SAS interfaces (using Asus PIKE RAID cards) and fan speed control.
Certain custom-built Clevo notebooks are eligible for a limited time discount at AVADirect.
For a limited time, boutique system builder AVADirect is shaving $50 off the price of certain "Quickship" model notebooks. The discount applies to custom-built Clevo-based models, of which there are several (nine, to be exact), and is good on configurations that are over $1,350. Quickship notebooks are configurable, though AVADirect removes the option of choosing specific brands of hardware in exchange for faster ship times (Quickship models ship within 5 business days).
After some initial hiccups, Clevo is back with the world's first X79 gaming notebook.
Being a system builders means you're at the mercy of hardware partners, and sometimes that's tricky business. Remember when Intel recalled its 6-Series chipset because of a SATA controller bug? That left OEMs with their pants down. It was around that same time that AVADirect began accepting pre-orders for Clevo's P270WM notebook, which would have been the world's first X79-based gaming laptop. Well, things happened -- "complications," AVADirect says -- and Clevo scrapped the design, went back to the drawing board, and built the P570WM. After taking a mulligan, Clevo is ready to let gamers experience the first true X79 desktop replacement, and once again, AVADirect is front in line.
Meet the world's first 2U four-way GPU server system.
AVADirect, a boutique system builder based in Ohio, claims it's the first system builder on planet Earth to offer 2U server systems with support for up to four GPUs or Tesla graphics cards. Having that much potential GPU horsepower crammed into a 2U server solution is supposedly something the industry has never seen, and it comes courtesy of Asus with its new ESC4000 G2 Black 2U server platform.
Just in time for the back-to-school shopping season, boutique system builder AVADirect out of Ohio announced today a new all-in-one (AIO) system with a 21.5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) LED touchscreen display, the Intel CAP08. AVADirect's latest AIO is built around Intel's Q77 mini-ITX platform and sports a metric ton of upgrade options, just in case the default $777.64 configuration doesn't float your back-to-school boat.
Dell's discontinued Alienware M11x notwithstanding, boutique builders have been paying a lot of attention to the 11.6-inch gaming laptop category, and it's all because Clevo concocted the W110ER, which is essentially a netbook on steroids (figuratively speaking -- steroids are bad, kids). Where can you get it? One place is AVADirect, the boutique builder based in Ohio that's now offering the Clevo W110ER starting at $937 and a penny.
Boutique system builder AVADirect readily admits it's "no secret" that it hasn't been offering Clevo-brand notebooks "for quite some time," and there was good reason for that. AVADirect was preparing for the next generation of notebooks built around Intel's HM77 chipset, which brings support for both 2nd generation (Sandy Bridge) and 3rd generation (Ivy Bridge) Core processors from Intel and native SuperSpeed USB 3.0 support.
