Tornado F7W: Laptop-to-power-through-intense-jobs-anywhere
FRAMINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS, USA — Digital Engineering (DE; digitaleng.news) announces that the Tornado F7W Mobile Workstation from Eurocom is its Editor’s Pick of the Week for November 28, 2018.
“Eurocom recently announced availability of its new Tornado F7W Mobile Workstation,” writes DE Editor at Large Anthony J. Lockwood. “They call it 'a supercomputer-class laptop,' and its specs make a good case to back up that claim. … Let's start with the brains; first CPUs then GPUs (graphics processing units).”
“You have your choice of a six-core/12 thread Xeon E-2816G, an eight core/eight thread Core i7-9700K or Intel's next generation eight core/16 thread Core i9-9900K microprocessor,” he says.
“Graphics: You can trick out the Tornado F7W with a professional-level, high-performance NVIDIA Quadro P5200, P4200 or P3200 GPU,” Lockwood continues. “A neat thing here is that these GPUs are upgradable. Each has multi-gigabyte graphics memory.”
“The Tornado F7W supports up to 128GB of double data rate ECC or non-ECC RAM,” he notes. “The workstation's three solid state drive slots and two 2.5-in. SATA 3 bays means that its storage memory can reach 22TB. [It] comes with a 17.3-in. display. You can go for a 120Hz 1920x1080 full high definition or a 60Hz 3840x2160 ultra high-definition/4K screen. It handles four external displays too.”
Couple lots of memory and perky storage throughput with any combination of those CPUs and GPUs [and] you should get first-class response out of your CAD/CAM/CAE applications wherever you have to be,” he concludes.
