New Cadalyst White Paper Tests Workstation Against Gaming PC7 Dec, 2018 Sponsored By: Intel
Benchmark test scores illustrate specific pay-offs of professional hardware for design and engineering work.
Cadalyst announces the publication of its latest white paper, Workstation vs. PC: In the Race to Meet Design Deadlines, Which Option Wins?
Sponsored by Intel, the 11-page paper shares the results of recent benchmark tests to evaluate the CAD and graphics performance of a $2,200 professional CAD workstation against a $2,100 desktop PC outfitted for gaming.
Test results also illustrate the performance differentiation between the 2018 professional workstation and a comparably priced 2015 professional workstation.
The paper was produced by the editors of Cadalyst. Research, testing, and writing were conducted by hardware expert Alex Herrera, a consultant focusing on high-performance graphics and workstations and author of the Workstation Report series published by Jon Peddie Research. It is an updated version of a paper by the same name published in 2015.
The paper is available for free download here and from the Cadalyst Library, which offers numerous free white papers, tip sheets, and case studies about workstations and other CAD-related hardware and software.
