MediaWorkstation a-XP - heavy duty portable PC weighing 13 kg
Outside the office and at home, it can sometimes require more processing power than a thin and light laptop can offer, and that's where mobile workstations can come in handy. But for the most part, computers in this category are just laptops with a little extra power.
The MediaWorkstations a-XP Portable Threadripper Workstation PC is definitely not a laptop. It's technically portable, of course, as it's a versatile device with a display, keyboard, trackpad, and even a carry handle.
But with support for up to 64-core AMD Threadripper 3990X processor and high-performance NVIDIA graphics, this device won't last long on battery power, so it comes without a battery. If desired, it can be powered by portable batteries.
MediaWorkstation a-XP is also a fairly large machine - it weighs between 10.5 and 13.5 kg and measures 35 x 42 x 18.5 cm. The computer is portable in the sense that it can be carried from place to place, but in fact, it is a desktop computer built for travel.
MediaWorkstations a-XP can be purchased starting at $7997. For this price, you get a laptop with a 24-core AMD Thredripper 3960X processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER graphics, 32GB RAM, 250GB SSD, but no operating system.
If you need a fully-loaded version of a-XP with a 64-core processor, 64GB RAM, 4TB SSD, 14TB hard drive, and NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU, the price can go up to $ 20,000. This price does not include Intel Optane storage. , network card, and other equipment.
Overall, it's impressive that the company has created a powerful PC with Threadripper workstation and made it mobile for people who need to do serious computing on the go. Only it was released at a time when many are working from home.
