NextComputing Incorporates Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ Processors Into its FlexTop, Portable Graphics Workstation
Unique Graphics Workstation Solution Combines Portability, Functionality and Compute-Intensive Performance
Nashua, New Hampshire --
NextComputing today announced the latest version of the NextDimension, a FlexTop, high performance mobile workstation with extreme graphics computing and throughput. Supporting Next-Generation AMD Opteron™ processors with energy-efficient DDR2 memory and outstanding AMD PowerNow!™ technology capabilities, the NextDimension is more capable of performing compute-intensive applications, storing large amounts of critical data, and decreasing total cost of ownership (TCO).
The NextDimension delivers AMD64 technology in a small form factor, empowering end-users with increased performance and energy-efficiency, while minimizing real estate needs. NextComputing
has aligned itself with AMD’s roadmap as they continue to develop a robust virtualization ecosystem that provides users with innovation and choice.
“With Next-Generation AMD Opteron processors, NextComputing’s customers can expect increased performance-per-watt and compute-intensive capabilities in a mobile solution,” said Bob Labadini, president and CTO, NextComputing. “Our latest FlexTop offering reinforces our mission statement to provide ever-improving functionality and flexibility in its small, portable workstation designs.”
The NextDimension is designed as a portable
, desktop-replacement system to provide CAD/CAM
, Oil and Gas
, and visualization markets with the ability to perform compute intensive 3D graphics applications in a much smaller form factor. The workstation supports next-generation AMD Opteron 2000 Series HE processors, as well as several new features, including the availability of Dual NVIDIA Quadro® FX 3500 graphic boards by PNY Technologies, Inc., SLI enabled, and a new HydraGraphics 6-display configuration
which utilizes the onboard ATI Radeon® graphics controller
and two NVIDIA Quadro® FX 3500
boards by PNY Technologies, Inc. to power this multiple display option.
also offers a line of semi-rugged mobile workstations, incorporating all of the features of the NextDimension with the added benefit of adaptability to harsh environments. The Vigor
line is targeted towards Military/Intelligence
applications that require deployment into the field.
With the addition of AMD Opteron processors with DDR2, the NextDimension
product lines are able to leverage proven technologies, adding further performance-per-watt enhancements and improved business capabilities by enhancing efficient dual-core capabilities, low-power/high-bandwidth DDR2 memory, AMD Virtualization support, and quad-core upgradeability.
“The collaboration between NextComputing and AMD has brought the functionality and extreme graphics performance of a stand-alone workstation into a unique, portable computing solution,” said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD (NYSE: AMD). “Next-generation AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture and DDR2 support deliver industry-leading performance-per-watt to enable advanced business computing platforms.”
