ConceptD 700 – A Creator’s Workhorse
The elegantly designed ConceptD 700 workstation features an Intel Xeon E processor and up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics to address the needs of filmmakers, animators and AEC (architecture, engineering, construction) designers with powerful and stable performance for 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and demanding content creator workflows.
Optimal thermal ventilation is critical for taking on heavy design rendering. The ConceptD 700 uses three efficient cooling fans to draw air in through the triangular-patterned front air panel and then circulates it throughout the chassis.
To ensure the system is running effectively, CPU, GPU, and memory usage can be easily monitored through the intuitive ConceptD Palette, which sports a health indicator to signal issues requiring troubleshooting.
The ConceptD 700 has been tested and certified by major independent software vendors (ISVs) to ensure software and hardware are compatible, stable and reliable.
The ConceptD 7 Ezel convertible notebook will be available in Q2 in EMEA, starting at EUR 2,499.
The ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro convertible notebook will be available in Q2 in EMEA, starting at EUR 2,999.
