NASHUA, NH — NextComputing (www.nextcomputing.com), a provider of compact, high-performance computing solutions, has introduced its sleekest and more powerful portable workstation yet, the Edge. This thin, low-profile portable combines engineering-class workstation performance with a distinctive look.
The Edge is consistent with the company's reputation for innovation in compact mobile systems that offer features and performance beyond the most powerful notebook computer. Users can take advantage of Edge’s small size for easy deployment or to maximize their workspace, while outperforming much larger stationary systems. There is no need to settle for bulky desktop towers or to utilize multiple systems when just one Edge gets the job done.
The Edge’s flexible design adapts to many demanding applications, including broadcast production and editing; eCAD, mCAD, and a range of complex CAD engineering applications; research-based work in the medical and scientific fields; simulation and visualization; gaming; mobile training facilities; and any tasks involving complex imagery, 3D models, and large datasets. The Edge also offers mid-range mobile server capabilities for tasks like vSphere-based application virtualization.
Laptop mobility is convenient but offers limited computing performance. The Edge allows users to work remotely or collaborate with partners and clients without sacrificing power.
Features include an integrated 17.3-inch full HD display, a carrying case, a 1-year parts and labor warranty, and flexible configuration options.
Workstation-class processor options include Intel Xeon or Intel Core i7. Users can request up to 256GB RAM, and there is support for two full-size PCI Express cards, including graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD. Up to four fixed internal Solid State Drives can be incorporated with up to 1TB each.
