Cerise Quad-Core Workstation

ceris_quad-core Cerise Quad-Core Workstation ($ 3342 direct) is aimed at professionals who want a simple, quiet but powerful multimedia PCs. In line with this theme, it is not bloatware, no fancy additions, and nearly silent. What he does, a powerful quad-core processor; RAID-5 array for a safe, fast storage and stand ready to work. This computer jobs, rather than a game box, as a rule, can be found at this price. Your investment buys you the system is ready for you to make money, with the speed and storage to keep their projects on track.

Quad-Core Workstation comes in a standard promising Silverstone TJ10 silver case with a door that hides the system optical drive bays. The case is optimized for cooling water, with good ventilation. The case itself is spacious, with additional opportunities for future expansion, including additional hard drives, PCI and PCIe expansion and additional optical disks. You can even the other video card SLI configurations, but quiet performance, not graphics, so the focus within the system. Four hard drives have their rooms, separated from the rest of the system. This means that when you're doing disk-heavy tasks such as video editing, hard disks will not be the warmth of the remaining components, such as temperature-sensitive CPU. Although there are places in the event of the liquid cool, Cerise not. (For the reliability, Cerise not overclocking its components, so there is no heavy liquid cooling is not necessary.)

Cerise saves you scad of bloatware can be found at his usual level of consumer PCs. Working station on the hard drive was empty, except for Microsoft Office demo. You do not want software loaded Mucking their level of professional applications, if you want to participate in the purchase of a computer to make your life. Trialware and other bloatware can offer software errors, even when you do the real work.

The system comes with four 500 GB, 7200 rpm hard disks. Three disks in RAID-5 array, so if one of the three fails, you can still use the system to replace a bad drive. The system uses PCIe SATA RAID card is connected to the motherboard. If a disc space is always lost in a RAID-5 array, it gives you "only" 1 TB data on the disk. This is an acceptable compromise for the protection of data, especially for the target group of multimedia professionals who by the hard disks quickly. In the fourth hard drive, with the same criteria as the other serves as the system C: drive.

Apart from the extra space on the hard disk, RAID 5 will give you better performance than a single disc, especially when you compare it with an external hard disk. When I contradict Futuremark in PCMark05 test drive in a RAID array Cerise, he returned with 6627 points, which far outstrips even the fastest external eSATA disk LaCie Little Big Disk Quadra (4721) 40 percent. With 1 TB, you have the space to work with digital photos, uncompressed audio or video. Since the system has 3 GB DDR2 memory, you're in a good space until you do not need 64 - bit computing. We have the system comes with Windows XP Home, that is fine as long as you do not need to connect to the corporate network with Windows domains. Windows XP Pro, Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate 32 - bits, is also supported Cerise as options to purchase a system. Cerise XP chosen because there is a large user base for XP as well as additional software and drivers to support XP, in Vista.

Systems quad-core Core 2 Quad Q6700 processor works in a warehouse 2.67 GHz, Cerise led to very good scores on our core multimedia tests. Our test unit ready Windows Media Encoder test a sprightly 56 seconds (less than 1 minute very good), and ripped through our Photoshop CS3 tests in 26 seconds (less than 1 minute very good; under 30 seconds, is excellent) . Cerise has given a very high rate (9523) on CineBench R10, indicating that the processor Q6700 powerful multimedia tasks. The SYSmark 2007 provisional total score (131) was average for the high-end PC's (which is better than the average in general), indicating that this is a good table in the daily professional and business functions.

On the desktop, in 3D performance was adequate, if uninspiring 5459 points on 3DMark06, which is needed for the basic real-time and makes games (although pro animator would like to see higher station with a view to the pro - level video). NVidia GeForce 8600 GT, that my review system, with a decent mid-level graphics card-nothing special, but fully DX10-compatible. It can also serve for many years before are in need of replacement. 8600 GT is vitally important advantages over the more expensive game-class card: it is quiet. If you need to quickly map, Cerise decline in May 8600 GTS about $ 70 more, but this may be louder, and.

Unlike multimedia systems such as Velocity Micro Edge M40, Cerise quad-core eschews dual graphics, funneling that the cost of hardware RAID card and the extra devices. This configuration makes Cerise much quieter than systems such as Edge M40 and Polywell Poly X3800. Indeed, the quietest Cerise tower PC, I now have on my bench. To get any quieter, you have to switch to a completely fanless Zonbu Desktop Mini. If there are deficiencies in possession Cerise Quad-Core Workstation, they are limited technical support hours (9 to 5 East, from Monday to Friday), and the choice of XP Home XP Pro. Well, maybe this is a bit big for the desktop, but it works fine on multimedia PCs.

Cerise Quad-Core Workstation is a no-nonsense multimedia PCs. It has no frills, in addition to quiet work and the quality of construction. These two features are hard to find on the average consumer or computer. If you want to buy powerful workstations, but continue with the more pedestrian (and cheaper) consumer class components, Cerise must be on your short list.
