Mobile Power - Massive DSP muscle (near dead silent)!
The stock Silent Micro-Tower case is sturdy and comes with a handle for easy transport.
The stock 650w power-supply is quiet.
The 9900k (eight cores) provides sixteen processing threads (sixteen virtual cores) at 5GHz.
All 8 cores are locked at 5GHz.
16GB to 32GB (dual-channel) is sufficient for most users.
For hard-core composers, the Pro Studio allows up to 64GB.
Small SSD as OS drive is what we recommend for most clients.
With a SSD, the machine boots quicker, apps open quicker, and navigating the OS is a little more "snappy".
A conventional HD can sustain over 100 solid/contiguous 24Bit/44.1k tracks of audio.
No need for SSD as Audio drive... (unless you're working at higher sample-rates).
m.2 Ultra SSD:
Disk-streaming sample libraries is where SSD really shines.
m.2 Ultra SSDs use 4 PCIe lanes and sustain 3200-3500MB/Sec (seventeen times the speed of conventional HD).
If pushing the limits with disk-streaming sample libraries, m.2 Ultra will yield absolute maximum polyphony.
UHD-630 is fine for straight up audio production (can run a pair of monitors).
Thunderbolt-3 is included.
15.6" Multi-Touch monitor can be placed in a 2U mobile rack (wheels)... along with your audio interface.
This makes cartage very similar to a laptop.
Take the Micro-Tower and 2U mobile rack to your gig. Connect HDMI, USB, and Thunderbolt (three cables)... and you're ready!
All the power of a fast desktop... with none of the limitation of a laptop.
At this point, nearly all major audio software/hardware is working well with Windows 10 x64.
For most users, we now recommend Windows 10 x64 Pro.
"Pro" version has Group Policy Editor (easy to shut down OneDrive, Cortana, etc)... and can fully disable all automatic updates.
