ISV-Certified Professional Graphics
We exclusively use NVIDIA Quadro and Nvidia RTX graphics cards on our engineering and CAD workstations. NVIDIA Quadro drivers are developed to maximize harmony between software and hardware in a way that goes far beyond what non-professional graphics cards require. NVIDIA works directly with dozens of Independent Software Vendors (e.g. Adobe, Autodesk, Dassault, etc) to optimize GPU drivers for those specific programs. These workstation GPUs are validated on hundreds of professional CAD/CAM/CAE and GIS applications to operate at the highest precision possible, leading to significantly increased productivity and truly professional grade results. Certain CAD programs benefit more from the higher spec, lower cost Nvidia RTX cards for their GPU accelerated tasks – contact us before ordering to ensure you’ll get the best possible GPU for your unique workflow. Orbital CAD workstations place a specific emphasis on powerful and capable graphics by including the strongest GPU options within a given price range. Many Computer Aided Design and post-processing programs out-source computationally intensive tasks to the GPU, improving workflow, decreasing CPU overhead, and decreasing time to market, making powerful GPUs integral to our engineering and design workstations.
11th Gen Intel Core i7 and i9 Processors
To optimize CAD/CAM/CAE performance, all our Intel based desktop workstations focus on maximizing processor frequency while retaining plenty of CPU cores, leading to drastically improved performance for common multithreaded CAD/CAM and Engineering functions such as rendering, simulation, toolpath generation and extensive multi-tasking. Many CAD program functions are largely single-threaded, benefiting from the high operating-frequency of our Intel Core i7, i9 and Extreme series processors, while simulation and rendering functions tend to benefit from more CPU cores and threads. We carefully select the Intel processors used in our powerful CAD computers to maximize both single and multithreaded performance by striking a fair balance between high operating frequency and multi-core configurations. The 11th Gen Intel Core i9 11900K CPU with 8 cores & 16 threads running at 5.3 GHz is our favorite highend CPU for most CAD/CAM/CAE and rendering workloads, providing maximum all around performance for a reasonable cost.
Industry Leading Warranty & Support Standard
Providing top-notch technical support is our main long-term priority. All support is provided by Orbital Computers’ own skilled in-house employees – we NEVER outsource our support! Our support staff are trained on the inner-workings of many common CAD/CAM/GIS applications, giving them an ability to respond immediately and effectively to help resolve technical issues. Every Orbital Computers Workstation comes with our comprehensive warranty which includes free lifetime tech support, lifetime labor & 3-year parts warranty (minimum), 3-year on-site service, and express parts replacement. None of our competitors’ support programs stack up. To ensure 100% reliability and stress-free Plug-and-Play operation, every professional workstation we build undergoes nondestructive stress and stability testing for up to 72 hours.
