The Chillblast Fusion Brutalist Architectural workstation is specifically designed to deliver the fastest possible performance in AutoCAD. For far too long professional architects have been told they need Xeon-based workstations equipped with startlingly expensive professional video cards when this simply isn’t the case. We’ve worked with some of the largest architectural practises in Europe and have proven our range’s superior performance, value and resilience.
At the heart of the Fusion Brutalist beats the exceptionally rapid Intel Core i7-10700K CPU. Based on the revolutionary Comet Lake architecture, the Core i7-10700K has 8 cores and 16 threads, making it extremely rapid for multi-core-optimised plugins including V-Ray. It also sports the fastest clock speed of all Intel processors, making it the fastest chip in the world for single-threaded, clock speed sensitive applications including AutoCAD. Supporting this processor is 32GB of fast DDR4 RAM, expandable to 64GB for users of very large models.
Graphics capabilities are handled by a GeForce RTX 3070 – one of the fastest video card available for Revit, AutoCAD, Creative Cloud, Rhino, Lumion, Enscape 3D, 3D Studio Max, ArcGIS, Vectorworks, Navisworks and many other applications in your suite. Application compatibility is assured, and you can lean on Chillblast’s legendary support team – 8 time winners of the PC Pro Excellence award - for assistance if you have any compatibility problems.
A professional grade workstation motherboard - the ASUS PRIME Z490M PLUS - ensures rock solid reliability as well as every conceivable feature you could need, including USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, gigabit LAN, USB Type-C and multiple SATA and M.2 slots for state of the art storage and 7.1 surround sound.
You can enjoy ultimate performance when it comes to starting CAD applications, loading large models, dipping into the page file or simply restarting Windows thanks to the Samsung M.2 NVMe SSD storage – a solution up to 5x faster than those found in competing architectural workstations.
All of this carefully selected and optimised hardware is shrouded within a stunning aluminium and steel case, complete with tempered glass fenestration that won’t look out of place in even the sleekest of practise boardrooms.
Don’t be left in the slow lane by buying under-powered, overpriced workstations from your traditional supplier. Isn’t it time you started buying smart?
This is the upgraded version of the review system seen in the Architect’s Journal.
