CX & CUDATM
@Xi® Computer, as one of the top Nvidia®
Quadro® supporter, we are proud to be
part of the introduction to this
revolutionary new line of Nvidia Video
cards using CUDATM
(Compute Unified Device Architecture)
technology. The new Quadro® CX, with
1.5GB of video memory and countless
sophisticated features, directly aimed
at DCC, takes fully advantage of CUDA
and allows new specific computational
and graphic routines to be written and
executed by the GPU (Graphic Processing
Unit) at a much faster speed than the
hosting CPU. Adobe® Premiere® Pro CS4 &
Adobe® After Effects® CS4 are among the
first application to take full advantage
of CUDA, with a huge performance
improvement. CUDA virtually works on all
Nvidia video cards and can take
advantage of multiple GPU installed on
the same system.

More than a year ago we started offering
quieter but more powerful system
solutions, with the adoption of CPU water-cooling technology. The main
goal was to improve the thermal
convection of the stock CPU heat-sink,
while reducing the amount of noise
generated by the speedy cooling fan. We
just improved this concept with a new
revolutionary line of air-cooled
heat-sinks from Cooler-Master®, adopting
an massive amount of fin surface and
using a vertical, quiet 12cm fan. This
new technology combines the quietness of
the water-cooled approach, still
allowing a good amount of heat
extraction by keeping the air-flow from
font to back of the case. It also has an
even better thermal conveyance, compared
to the early water-cooling systems and
an intrinsically maintenance-free
reliability. With this improved
technology and Intel newest 45nm CPU, we
are currently offering an outstanding
Intel® Core®2 Duo E8600, or a Quad core
QX9770 at 3.60GHz, delivering
unsurpassed performance at a
With the advent of faster and more
powerful CPUs and video card, the need
for adequate case ventilation has been
quite a challenge. Our effort had paid
off with the newest offering of our Xi®
HAF model. Dubbed by Cooler-Master®
HAF (Headquarters Air Force), this new
full tower case has the best ventilation
design available on the market, while
maintaining a very quiet noise
signature. Equipped with three huge, but
extremely quiet, 23cm fan plus one 14cm
back fan, this innovative case offers
the adequate amount of cooling to
reliably support a Triple SLITM
configuration with power hungry video
cards like the Nvidia®
GeForce® 9800GTX+, combined
with both single and dual processor
multi-cores CPU and high speed RAM.

Is Microsoft® Vista™
really a new thing? Despite some
initial skepticism and critics, of
course it is new and innovative,
especially for the 64-bit version.
It will simply take time to
assimilate and perfect for
productive use. What that means in
plain words? Most of your old
applications will not run on Vista.
For example, AutoCAD® versions prior
to 2007 will, most likely, never
receive a patch or update to run on
Vista. ACAD 2007 and 2007/LT will
(possibly soon) get a patch only for
Vista 32-bit. The 2008 Versions will
run on both Vista 32 and 64-Bit, all
flavors from Home to Ultimate.
Expect the same behavior for other
old CAD and Game packages you
already own. If you really like to
get Vista now, we do recommend the
64-Bit versions. In the 32-bit Vista
versions, the memory limitation of
the old XP to 3GB (yes, even if you
have 4GB) is still there. With the
64-Bit version you can address
beyond 4GB to the max RAM offering
of our multiprocessor
Xeon® processors (32GB+), to
solve some of the memory swapping
problems of XP and improve

continuous increasing in clock
speed, RAM and Hard Drive capacity,
the amount of energy dissipated by

the associated heat and noise.
Recently we teamed up with one of
the most advanced computer case

provide you with state-of-the-art
air and water-cooling technology.

FX-70, FX72 and FX-74 come at 2.6, 2.8 &
3GHz clock speed with a performance above
the Opteron™ 2220 at basically almost half
the price. Even though preliminary
benchmarks still show the Intel holding the
absolute performance crown, this AMD
solution has few advantages of its own.
Among them are a competitive price for the
low-end clock and scalability to a second
dual core CPU at a later time, while the
multithread software is catching up. At the
FX-72 level, with 2 CPU installed, the
amount of power/heat to dissipate is quite
substantial and the price advantage is a bit
diminished by the extra cooling required. We

@Xi® The Fastest Workstation!
We do not
have to change the title, dejavu again and again. While
our competitors tried to follow with the same
configuration (Intel® based) of the previous review, we
gave them a new lesson in the art of system integration.
Our Xi® MTowerTM
64SLI, with the AthlonTM
FX55 (2.6GHz) and NVIDIA® NForceTM 4 SLI chipset motherboard, QuadroTM
FX4400 PCIe got the fastest result on CADalyst
2005 Workstations Roundup review. CADalyst give us the fastest record-breaking score with
Xi® MTower 2P64 Workstation

Quite an impressive result, a dual CPU system is finally
outperforming the fastest single processors. Well, of
course @Xi Computer is the workstation leader! Any
doubts? OK, PC-WORLD gives us the #1 spot with
the MTower AGE-SLI, still same FX55 and same chipset,

core CPU. That's just the beginning, we are just
shipping the first Dual Core 4400, 4800 AthlonTM
and the 270, 275 and 875 OpteronTM. Confusing? A Dual Core is a single chip containing two CPU
with it's own independent cache sharing the memory
controller that interfaces with the outer world. The
4400 and 4800 allows dual CPU power on a single
processor motherboard, a new level of affordability for
a workstation. The 270 and 275, being utilized on a dual
processor board, give you 4 (four) CPUs total. If you
have a multithread application that will take advantage,
or multiple applications competing for power, this it
the answer. Ultimately the 875 is a Dual Core CPU that
installed in our quad motherboard allows you 8 CPU
total. Never such power has been so affordable, dense
and reliable. The NVIDIA® GeForce 7800GTX and the

The Fastest Workstation!
One more time again, our Xi®
SP got the fastest result of all CADalyst November 2004
Workstations Roundup review. This achievement is quite
significant in several aspects: 1) The fastest result
using a 3.60GHz CPU clock speed vs. the second
competitor using a 3.80 GHz (costing much more), with a
virtually identical configuration, shows the @Xi
technological superiority in the workstation arena. Our
systems are not prepackaged overseas, but custom built,
tested and configured here in our labs in California,
with superior quality control and customization,
delivering a clear performance advantage. 2) When
comparing the price/performance ratio @Xi is the #1
workstation leader. 3) PCI-ExpressTM
with DDR2 are the clear winners even against more
performing video boards in the "old" AGP 8x, paving the
way for a "must have" new upgrade path.

After careful testing we have validated PCI-Express™
based systems both single and dual processor based on the
4 and XEON™
processors. Intel has been the promoter of this new graphic
interface that is initially capable of twice the bandwidth
of the AGP 8X "old" interface to 4Gbyte/sec. In addition to
a higher bandwidth, the PCI-Express interface allows easy
scalability with 2 PCI-E interfaces on the same motherboard.
The advantages are multiples: Better graphic performance,
balanced 3D performance with 4 screens configuration and the
ability to use Multiple Graphics Units (GPU) for a single
screen presentation. Nvidia®
is the leader in this concept with the introduction of the
(Scalable Link Interface) concept offering unsurpassed
performance, by using multiple Graphic Processors resident
on multiple graphics cards. At present we offer a XEON™

our review in every category". Click here to read the full review.
AMD Athlon is here; Xi 650K MTower is the fastest AutoCAD
workstation (one more time)! We
are shipping the newest 700MHz AMD Athlon, and the November
issue of CADalyst just gave the award for the FASTEST AutoCAD Workstation to our Xi 650K MTower SP, with 5 star
rating. In this review we used the AMD Athlon 650MHz and an
equally configured Intel 600MHz Pentium III processor for direct
comparison. The Xi 650K (AMD CPU) was, up to, almost 50%
faster… than the fastest Intel based (IBM & Xi too!), and
more than 15% faster than its closest Athlon-equipped
competitor. Xi has been rated the best price & best
performance of the all systems CADalyst reviewed and it features
a great new Tool Free Xi MTower Case. What’s
new? Xi is the uncontested leader of the CAD System market!
And those of you who ask the most important question: “How
much faster is the AMD compared to the Intel?” we can answer
that (based on the CAD benchmark) at same clock speed the AMD is
overall around 10% faster. Now the lead is in favor of AMD
considering clock speed, price & deliverance, taking into
account that Intel just announced the 733MHz with 133MHz BUS,
while AMD is now delivering the 700MHz and talking about 750Mhz
soon. Stay tuned for more details on the review, new Intel
products and the exciting new “war of the CPU clock”. Of
course you can always get the latest and fastest technology from
