Miami, FL (January 26, 2006)–Alienware has released two new workstations: the Intel-based MJ-12 7500i and the AMD-based MJ-12 7500a. The MJ-12 7500i and MJ-12 7500a are loaded with an NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16-based motherboard featuring two full bandwidth16-lane PCI Express slots to ensure optimized and scalable performance for digital content creators and developers.
The MJ-12 7500i is available with dual-core Intel Pentium processors while the MJ-12 7500a can be configured with dual-core AMD Opteron processors. Dual-core technology, which delivers comparable power to dual CPUs at a lower cost, allows these new Alienware workstations to provide enhanced multitasking capabilities and “outstanding performance” on multi-threaded digital media applications and other processor-intensive projects.
Offering the ultimate graphics solutions, the MJ-12 7500i and MJ-12 7500a are available with the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 graphics cards to deliver incredibly realistic rendered images. These workstations also maximize users’ storage flexibility with hard drives in RAID 0 and 1 configurations that provide up to 2TB of total data storage. Furthermore, different Alienware Acoustic Dampening options allow these systems to maintain quiet and cool operation, even under heavy use, by supplying up to a 40 percent reduction in noise levels and offering Alienware’s proprietary Liquid Cooling technology.
“The new MJ-12 7500i and MJ-12 7500a workstations are the ideal solution for demanding professionals seeking the combination of long-term reliability and advanced technologies,” said Frank Azor, senior vice-president and general manager/worldwide product group for Alienware. “Based on industry leading architecture, the new MJ-12 workstations deliver outstanding performance featuring shorter rendering times, crisp audio processing and quieter operation.”
“The NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 MCP ensures that all of the graphics, storage, memory, and security needs essential to workstation users are not only met but surpassed,” said Drew Henry, general manager of MCP business at NVIDIA. “As a result, MJ-12 7500i and MJ-12 7500a workstations with NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 MCPs and Quadro FX-based graphics cards are extremely powerful tools for those in the digital content industry.”
