Leadtek WinFast Workstation Passes NVIDIA Maximus Certification - Overturning 3D animation, modeling and visual computing concepts

Taipei, Taiwan, Oct 25, 2012
The world's professional graphics-card maker, Leadtek Research Inc. launches the WinFast® WS1000 workstation that contains multitasking and visualization in one quiet and elaborate box. This NVIDIA® MaximusTM accredited dual-socket platform, equipped with the new-generation Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 CPU and the NVIDIA ® Quadro® professional graphics card with a NVIDIA ® Tesla® high-speed computing GPU, helps professional users enhance productivity and simplify work processes. Leadtek will continue to launch entry-level, high-level workstations to fulfill the demand of individual fields.

Engineers, designers, and professional content workers must complete content faster with visual design and physical simulation. For example, in order to find out how air flows across a vehicle in auto design, designers used to design and simulate scenarios with different systems or at different times. The WinFast WS1000 integrates the visualization and interactive design functions of the NVIDIA Quadro GPU and the high-performance computing of the NVIDIA Telsa GPU in the same workstation. The Telsa coprocessor can automatically execute complicated HDR (high-definition rendering) and simulation computing to release CPU resources to execute I/O, OS, and multitasking; while the Quadro GPU handles rich and full performance interactive design. This new system will also support the next-generation NVIDIA Kepler-based Maximus technology.

The WinFast WS1000 allows designers and engineers to design on the same platform and execute CAE, rendering or structure/fluidity analysis simultaneously. Professional content workers can edit, add special effects and finish animations faster. Commenting on the WinFast WS1000 equipped with the NVIDIA Maximus technology, Leadtek Chairman K.S. LU said, 'Leadtek has years of experience in producing professional graphics card, and is the sole Asia-Pacific agent of the NVIDIA Quadro. The new workstation series that has passed the NVIDIA certification for the Maximus technology will mean a double advantage integrating quality stability and price competitiveness.' Without a doubt, the WinFast Workstation is the best solution for auto and aeronautic design and the post-production of 3D filmmaking.

The WinFast WS1000 delivers a wide range of flexible hardware specifications and provides great expandability for a wide variety professional applications and complex work processes. These include 16 memory slots, hard drive hot swap, and the latest USB 3.0. Along with a high-performance green power supply, the WinFast WS1000 is a quiet computing solution with an elaborate appearance for use in limited space. It needs no tool to open the box for maintenance and comes with integrated (rail set) for mounting on standard racks. This new system is available now in Asia-Pacific.
