Engineers, designers, and power office users consistently demand higher performance and system reliability from their desktop computing solutions. As such, ASUS, producer of top-notch computer solutions, has released the ASUS Workstation TW100-E5 iQuadro. Catering to the needs of professionals who work with applications like AutoCAD and Adobe After Effects which require a graphics solution built for professionals, the TW100-E5 iQuadro will provide corporations with the ability to improve productivity through enhanced computing power and certified support for a wide range of professional graphics applications—all without the hefty investment.
Excellent Performance in Applications Developed by Certified Partners
The TW100-E5 iQuadro is the first workstation built with the high performance NVIDIA Quadro FX470 chipset. Besides its support of the integrated Quadro certification, the TW100-E5 iQuadro is also certified to provide excellent performance across a diverse spread of industry-leading applications developed by certified partners, such as Computer-aided engineering (CAE), Computer-aided design (CAD)/Autodesk/AutoCAD, Inventor, 3ds Max, Digital content creation (DCC), Research and Geographic information system (GIS)—serving as an impressive workstation solution that is optimized to handle graphics-intensive tasks in these varied fields.
The NVIDIA Quadro FX470 chipset addresses the ever-expanding graphics and parallel processing requirements that professional applications—from volume CAD to digital content creation applications—need. Compared to general workstations equipped with an FX570 graphics card, the TW100-E5 is able to support OpenGL 2.1 via its graphics chipset and deliver increased computing performance by 10% for the AutoCAD VMB 2008 GeoMean application.
Cost-effective Quad Display for Increased Work Efficiency
With the industry-standard architecture of the TW100-E5 iQuadro, multiple output functionality and support for dual-screen displays will provide cost-effectiveness to customers. In addition, the PCI-E 2.0 x16 expansion slot supports an optional Quadro graphics card—allowing users to further expand their screenspace for professional Quad-Display functions to make working much more convenient.
Energy-saving Green Design
With an emphasis on energy savings, ASUS’ green design team has developed the TW100-E5 iQuadro into an earth-friendly product. Equipped with an 86% high efficiency power supply, the TW100-E5 iQuadro is able to reduce power loss and save energy—helping customers save on energy bills and cut down total cost of ownership (TCO).
Flexible Storage Options
The TW100-E5 iQuadro supports three SATA HDDs to meet the data storage demands of professionals. In addition, to make hardware upgrades simpler and more convenient, the optional ASUS upgrade kits SASsaby 1064E (supports LSI® Integrated RAID 0, 1, 1E) and SASsaby M (supports H/W RAID 0, 1, 10, 5) provide direct support for SAS storage and ensure reliable data protection.
