There are plenty of custom PC manufacturers to choose from, but what if your needs go beyond just a powerful gaming PC? Maingear has a solution, thanks to its new line of high-end prebuilt systems designed for professionals spanning various industries.
The company’s new Pro WS series includes a collection of desktop workstations designed to excel at the most demanding tasks. The company says that these systems are designed for game developers, photo editors, graphic designers, videographers, 3D rendering artists, music producers, CAD engineers, data scientists and AI/machine learning developers.
Maingear currently has a total of three workstation options that can be customized according to your needs. According to the company, you can also configure it with the newly launched Threadripper 7000 CPU.
The first is the Pro WS which comes in a standard mid-tower design. It is configured in Fractal Design’s North mid-tower chassis with beautiful wood-finish panels on the front. You can opt for glass or mesh side panels, while the main hardware options include the latest Intel Core or AMD Ryzen CPUs, paired with dual Nvidia RTX 6000 GPUs for great graphics performance. If you remember, Maingear recently launched two custom gaming PC options in partnership with Fractal Design and Noctua.
Cooling for the CPU is handled by Noctua with additional case fans ensuring optimal temperature management, while there are memory options for up to 128GB of DDR5. Storage needs are met by a choice between a Samsung 990 NVMe SSD (1-4TB option) or a Seagate IronWolf HDD (8-16TB option). There’s a 1600W PSU to handle all the demanding hardware while operating system options include Windows 11 Pro, Linux, or a dual-boot setup. As a testament to its reliability, ProWS is backed by a 2-year Pro Solutions warranty, with the option to upgrade to a 3-year warranty.
The Pro WS Max and Pro RS are classified as extreme performance workstations that are designed to accommodate expanded performance capabilities and are configurable with some of the most powerful components. Housed in Fractal Design’s Define 7 XL chassis, the ProWS Max provides a complete tower solution, while the Pro RS, in a 4U rackmount form factor, is based on the Silverstone RM44 chassis.
CPU options are diverse, including the latest Intel Core, Intel Xeon, AMD Ryzen, AMD Ryzen Threadripper, or AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro for top-of-the-line processing power. The graphics capabilities are equally impressive, supporting up to 4x Nvidia A4000 or A5000 GPUs or 3x RTX 6000 GPUs.
Once again we have Noctua’s cooling solutions to ensure efficient thermals, while the memory capacity has been doubled, going up to 256GB DDR5. Storage options include Samsung 990 NVMe SSDs with 1-4TB capacities or Seagate IronWolf HDDs with 8-16TB capacities. You get the same power options as the Pro WS, including a 1600W PSU while operating system options include Windows 11 Pro, Linux, or dual-boot configurations. These workstations come with a 2-year Pro Solutions warranty, with the option to upgrade to a 3-year warranty for peace of mind.
The price of these high-end systems has not been disclosed, but there is a configurator that is available on Maingear’s official website.
