The Chillblast Fusion Palladian Architectural workstation is specifically designed to excel in all architectural workloads. For far too long professional architects have been told they need Xeon-based workstations when this simply isn’t the case. We’ve worked with some of the largest architectural practises in the UK and have proven our range’s superior performance, value and resilience.
At the heart of the Fusion Palladian beats the colossally powerful Intel Core i9 CPU. Based on the same Skylake-X architecture as the Xeon Scalable family, the Core i9-9900X has 10 cores and 20 threads. These credentials make it exceptionally fast for rendering plugins like V-Ray, whilst a blistering clock speed of up to 4.5GHz make it equally well-equipped for AutoCAD workloads. Supporting this processor is 64GB of fast DDR4 RAM, expandable to 128GB for users of the largest models.
Graphics capabilities are handled by a Quadro RTX 5000 – demonstrably The fastest video card available for Revit, AutoCAD, Creative Cloud, Rhino, Lumion, Enscape 3D, Sketchup, 3D Studio Max, ArcGIS, Vectorworks, Navisworks and many other professional applications. 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 WS X299 Pro – ensures rock solid reliability as well as every conceivable feature you could need, including USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, dual gigabit LAN, multiple SATA, M.2 and U2 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 modernist 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?
