Despite being our lowest cost computer range, the Pro’s offer solid performance across Windows and can hold their own against many competitors on the market.
They are primarily purchased by people looking for a lower cost way to output different programs and images across multiple connected displays.
CPU, Chipset & RAM
The Intel Core i3 3.7GHz (6100) CPU which runs these systems offers really good performance for many Windows applications and tasks.
It is one of Intel's latest Skylake dual core chips with hyper-threading which presents the equivalent of 4 processors for Windows to utilise. The Skylake chip series are the fastest mainstream processors available and comfortably outperform their AMD rivals.
Performance is good for users who tend to keep their software usage to standard word processing, email and Internet browsing, only high levels of multi-tasking or using more demanding software packages will cause any kind of slowdown of operation of the machine.
It comes as standard with 8GB of RAM which is a very good amount for most purposes, you can however double this to 16GB for a small additional cost and if you think you’re going to be running a lot of programs at once then this would be a good option to consider.
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 AMD W4100 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 and power supply are both standard ATX products chosen for their good looks and performance.
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 fan 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.
