Maingear presents first workstation with Quadro M2000 video card
Maingear has become the first company in the world to offer a mobile workstation computer that features the just announced NVIDIA Quadro M2000 video card. The workstation is called Pulse 15 Pro.
The base configuration of the Maingear Pulse 15 Pro includes an Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake processor but for USD 250 more you can get an Intel Xeon E3-1505M chip. The workstation comes with 16 GB of DDR4 memory and an M.2 NVMe Samsung 950 Pro SSD that can have a capacity of up to 512 GB but there’s enough space for a second 256 GB or 512 GB SSD. In addition to this there’s a 1 TB hard drive inside, a DVD-RW drive, an optional Blu-Ray drive, Killer E2200 networking, a 15.6-inch display at Full HD resolution and a 60 watt-hour battery. The device has several connectivity ports that include four USB 3.0 connectors, a single HDMI 1.4 connector and two Mini DisplayPort connectors.
The base configuration of the Pulse 15 Pro costs USD 2550, which is not little at all, given that the gaming equivalent of this computer sells for less money. In addition to this the Maingear gaming equivalent comes with a GeForce GTX 970 video card, while the Pulse 15 Pro has a modified version of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 950 graphics card. But when you need a workstation, you need a workstation and the Pulse 15 Pro may as well be the machine you are looking for.
