Image With so many powerful new technologies coming online, choosing a workstation for design and engineering is no longer the straightforward decision it used to be.

Image This slimline 15-inch mobile workstation breaks all the rules by putting the powerful ‘VR Ready’ Quadro P4000 GPU at its heart, writes Greg Corke

Image Greg Corke gives a rundown of the key things to look out for in a pro 3D laptop

Image With powerful processors, impressive cooling, good serviceability and excellent build quality, this 17” mobile workstation is hard to beat for taking CAD, viz and VR on the road

Image With dual 32-core AMD Epyc CPUs, this beast of a machine from Boston offers an incredible proposition for rendering – but at the expense of single-threaded performance

Image This dual Intel Xeon Gold workstation is not only phenomenally fast at ray trace rendering, but also delivers the goods in single-threaded workflows

Image Greg Corke looks at what AMD’s Vega GPU architecture brings to CAD, VR, viz and GPU rendering workflows

Image Workstation Specialists brings together the AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU and AMD Radeon Vega GPU to deliver a powerful workstation for CAD, viz and VR

Image With an overclocked six core ‘Coffee Lake’ Core i7 CPU and a well engineered compact chassis, this is an impressive CAD workstation but it does come at a premium

Image Greg Corke goes back to basics with some general advice for those looking to buy a workstation for Architecture, Engineering and Construction

Image HP’s new detachable 2-in-1 combines Wacom-grade digital pen technology with a Quadro GPU optimised for 3D CAD to deliver a new type of mobile workstation

Image This compact workstation not only delivers the goods for 3D CAD but with a powerful GPU, architects and engineers can also take their designs into VR

Image HP’s micro machine is great for bread and butter 3D CAD but buyers need to be confident that workflows won’t change

Image HP’s new ultra-portable laptop boasts a no-compromise quad core CPU but, for 3D CAD, the display needs to be carefully matched to the GPU

Image Fast, rugged, secure and available in capacities up to 2TB, there’s very little not to like about this compact external Solid State Drive

Image Designed and manufactured in Augsburg, Fujitsu has used its German engineering know-how to make a compact workstation with no compromise graphics

Image AMD has packed a powerful mid-range GPU into a low profile graphics card. CAD users no longer have to compromise on 3D performance to have a tiny workstation

Image With a significant boost in 3D graphics performance this impressive Small Form Factor (SFF) workstation should appeal to a much wider audience

Image The best performing of all the ultra portables but there are some compromises.
