Despite being our lowest cost computer range, the Pro’s offer solid performance in Windows and can hold their own against many competitors on the market.
Now featuring Intel’s 9th generation mainstream chips the Pro can offers really fast single thread performance at a really low price point.
CPU, Chipset & RAM
For the Pro PC you have the option of the i3 9100F, the faster i3 9350KF, or the more powerful i5 9600KF. Both the i3’s are quad core chips and the i5 is a six core processor.
The i3’s offer really fast single thread performance levels, this means programs will feel really responsive, ideally suited to more lightweight programs like web browsing, email use, or general office based software.
The i5 option increases the processing speeds further and also offers more scope for running multi-tasking workloads with it’s extra two CPU cores.
It comes as standard with 8GB of RAM which is still a very good amount for most purposes, you can double this to 16GB or even 32GB if you think you’re going to be running a lot of programs at once, or work with really large files.
Supplied as standard with a 120GB solid state hard drive, this is generally enough space for any software installation requirements and being a fast SSD ensures ultra responsive performance when booting and loading programs.
You have the option of increasing capacities of the SSD drive and adding an extra traditional 7200rpm hard drive for extra storage space.
The nVidia GT 710 cards power you screens and are more than capable of producing good Windows performance across all your connected monitors.
They are passively cooled which means silent operation and the lack of moving parts helps with reliability levels as well. Low power requirements also mean they are a pretty economical option.
Each card comes with 1 DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 VGA monitor output of which you can use 2 per card simultaneously.
For the 8 screen option we switch to two powerful nVidia Quadro graphics cards, these can each support up to 4 monitors per card however the monitor outputs are Mini DisplayPort so you will need adapters to connect to standard HDMI or DVI screens.
Case, Power & Cooling
The case is a nice Fractal Design branded Core 1100 and the power supply offers really low noise operation.
The case offers good internal design and ensures that airflow is optimum, keeping your components cooler which helps prolong their life.
The low noise 500w power supply likewise helps towards a long PC lifespan due to its stable power output.
The CPU is air cooled by the Intel stock processor fans which is manually tuned down by our technicians to reduce noise levels, this is a more than adequate solution for the vast majority of users.
Multi-Screen Computing at Fantastic Prices
If you’re looking at purchasing a multi-screen capable computer that offers solid performance across software like word processing, Internet browsing, emailing or any other general computing task then the Pro’s are well worth consideration.
Despite the lower cost of the machines we have not cut corners on component selection at all, everything we install has been specifically chosen to ensure the best possible performance combined with outstanding reliability by our expert system designers.
