Today’s workstations are designed for professionals in fields that require constant innovation and use graphically and computationally intensive applications for tasks like computer-aided design (CAD) or digital content creation. Ranging from entry-level CAD workstations to GPU supercomputers, Thinkmate workstations are engineered to deliver superior performance, versatility, and stability in demanding work environments. Robust hardware designs, high-quality components, and optional features such as error-correcting code (ECC) memory make our workstation computers durable and reliable—one of the many reasons engineers, researchers, and other professionals choose Thinkmate workstations over commodity desktop PCs.

Getting the Most Value from Your Workstation Investment: Choosing the Right Components

Workstations are sold in a wide variety of configurations at shifting price points; so, you’ll want to research the latest components in order to maximize your ROI when purchasing a workstation PC. Factors that you should consider include:

  • Processing power. Investigate how your primary applications and workflows may benefit from the use of a certain CPU (e.g., Intel® Xeon® vs. AMD Opteron™, quad-core vs. eight-core). Refer to the system requirements provided by software vendors as a baseline.
  • Memory. Decide how much and what type of RAM your applications need to run smoothly and reliably. Find out if you need ECC RAM, a type of memory that automatically corrects single-bit data corruption—a technology fast becoming the norm in professional-grade workstations.
  • Graphics processing units. Assess whether the use of a workstation GPU or multiple GPUs will accelerate your most frequently performed work processes. Determine whether your software can leverage the capabilities of a high-performance GPU workstation.
