A Serious Workstation
We're content creators ourselves, and we often find ourselves working to tight deadlines - so we know the importance of having a reliable system that won't let you down under pressure.
If you're looking for a robust and reliable workstation at a great price, this Workstation Desktop PC is an excellent choice.
When you buy a PC from us, you're not just getting an assembled box of parts - you're getting a machine that was built with decades worth of experience and the utmost attention and professional care.
All Playtech designed systems are safely packaged for shipping, and include a 3 year warranty. Each one must pass a rigorous stress test to ensure that it meets our high standards of performance and reliability before it's sold.
PURPOSE BUILT FOR 2d & 3d Workloads
A lot of people will tell you to "just buy a gaming system" when you're looking for a workstation.
Although it's true that a gaming system will still get the job done, there are some key differences in our workstations that you won't find on a system designed for gaming.
We've also stripped back the aesthetics to remove any unneccessary RGB lighting and instead opted for a more mature, professional design that will make it look at home in a professional environment.
In addition to the high performance CPU cooling systems that we install in these systems, our workstations also have internal acoustic dampening panels and specially designed acoustic channels which reduce and diffuse the operating noise by a remarkable amount!
These are truly some of the quietest PC's we've ever built!
Our workstation systems are outfitted with seperate high performance NVMe M.2 Solid state drives.
By using seperate drives it means that your performance will never be limited by bandwidth, which can bottleneck your system if you don't configure your storage correctly.
Why so many hard drives?
We also install additional high capacity mechanical hard drives as "mass storage" for you to store and archive completed projects.
Generally speaking the higher the capacity a hard drive is, the more platters they use internally which leads to slower speeds and higher failure rates.
So rather than outfitting these machines with a single 4TB high capacity drive we instead build these systems with two 2TB high performance 7200RPM drives.
We believe this is the best compromise to deliver high performance and to reduce the odds of total data loss in the even of a system malfunction.
Additionally, If you would like us to configure these drives in a RAID array, let us know in the comments when you place your order.
Interchangeable Top Panel
Can your iMAC Do this?
Our workstations come with an interchangeable top panel which allows you to quickly and easily swap out one of the acoustic panels for an additional air vent and dust filter.
This is perfect for the summer months, or long periods of rendering!
In professional rendering circles, you may hear mention of high end Nvidia "Quadro" Graphics cards, which are made for hardcore professional computing.
You might wonder why we've opted not to include them in these workstations, and why we've chosen to use Geforce RTX graphics cards instead.
There's a few reasons, but mostly it boils down to value for money.
Although Quadro cards offer some incredible high end performance - they also cost several times more than their Geforce counterparts.
Current market prices have Quadros costing about 3x their Geforce equivalent, while only offering 2x the performance.
Sometimes this means spending $10,000 on JUST the graphics card!
This is why for the bulk of our workstations we've opted to use Nvidia Geforce RTX graphics cards.
We're still big fans of Nvidia Quadro cards, and we know that when it comes to specialised workloads and super high end systems - they're still the king!
However, if you're in the market for a high end Quadro powered system we'd prefer that you reach out to us directly so that we can design a bespoke system that caters exactly to your needs.
Before we ship your new PC we'll make sure it passes our comprehensive series of stress tests and benchmarks so that when you receive it, there's no nasty surprises!
