MK IV Workstation - The Latest Addition

Rent IT has a long history of building hire PCs small and large for a variety of market sectors. The MK IV is our latest hire workstation to address the performance requirements of virtual reality , photogrammetry , video creation , animation and data processing – and gaming!

Technical

The processor of choice is the Intel Core i7 5930k (water cooled)with 6 physical cores running at 3.5Ghz , providing good cost versus performance and core speed verses number of cores. The chosen motherboard is an Asus X99 Deluxe USB3.1 which incorporates DDR4 memory support up to 64GB over 8 sockets (standard build has 32GB), dual gigabit networking, USB 3.1 ports and support for M2 solid state drives which is populated with a Samsung SM951 SSD capable of 2150MB/s read. Graphics is covered with a nVidia GTX 980ti 6GB card ideal for Virtual Reality , 4k video , gaming and processing that can utilise the 2816 cuda cores. And if more graphics performance is required we can a second (or third) GTX980ti in Sli. The Lian case provides excellent cooling with 2 x 12cm inlet fans at the front and 1 x 12cm exit fan at the rear and if bulk storage is required up to an additional 5 x 3.5” hard drives can be installed in the quick fit rack.
