Workstation R7

The KillaRad Workstation R7 is a pro's upgrade dream come true.  Based on AMD's X370 platform, it features the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X eight-core processor, or you can choose the 1800X.  In the Ryzen 7 CPU, each of the cores in the processor operate like two cores.  The result is a virtual sixteen core processor.  For system memory the X370 brings DDR4 memory.  The R7 pays off in the quick response that it delivers.  When paired with the latest software that takes advantage of a multi-core processor and/or a modern GPU, the KillaRad™ Workstation R7 can deliver some startling performance advances that can positively impact your work.

The new AMD Ryzen processor features XFR technology.  With better cooling (which KillaRad offers) the CPU will automatically run faster due to greater thermal headroom.

For graphics, the default choice starts you off with nVIDIA's leader in mid-range graphics, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4 GigaBytes of DDR5 memory.  Other options are available for state of the art nVIDIA GeForce Pascal generation GPUs.

nVIDIA GPUs accelerate several applications in Adobe's latest Creative Cloud software including: Adobe Photoshop CC, Bridge CC, Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, and Acrobat.

The Workstation R7 includes Windows 10 Pro, with default options including a Logitech keyboard and a high precision SteelSeries mouse.  With a KillaRad tower with a Pro-grade SSD, you're ready to upgrade your world.

  • Solid State Drives are all memory drives with no mechanical parts, now with enough capacity to begin to replace hard disk drives.  They have the fastest transfer speeds available and technically the right SSDs have overall greater reliability.  The wrong SSDs however are an accident waiting to happen.
  • † Manufacturer reported maximum sequential transfer rate figures. Your performance may vary in use and as the drive adapts to usage.
  • A 512 GigaByte drive gives you a large amount of space, at a more affordable price, with the option to add a hard drive for extra storage.
  • A 1 TeraByte drive offers an enormous amount of room for a massive library of games, applications, TV shows, and music.
  • Seagate Solid State Hybrid Drives offered here are 7200 RPM hard drives with an 8GB SSD flash memory cache in addition to the standard hard drive cache.
  • The flash memory in an SSHD adapts to your usage patterns to improve load times and overall speed.
  • You benefit from faster Windows boot times over a traditional hard drive.
  • Windows shows the formatted capacity for all drives as approximately 7% less than the capacity the drive is sold as.  For example 1 TeraByte offers ~930GB; 2TB offers ~1.8TB, etc.

All drives offered here have a minimum of 5-Year Manufacturer's Warranties.  However, it is normal and responsible to do your own periodic backups of your system to protect yourself from data loss.

 Add an Intel Centrino Wireless 802.11 A/B/G/N/AC Adapter with Bluetooth 4.0 +$65.00 

Wi-Fi networking for a home typically connects to a broadband router with built-in wireless.  Some provider supplied Internet modems include Wi-Fi.  (If your home doesn't have a fast Internet provider you might use Wi-Fi to tether off of a modern smartphone, but probably not for serious online gaming, or video or music streaming.)  While wired networking at Gigabit speeds is always preferred due to its speed and reliability, this wireless adapter is plenty fast enough for broadband Internet.  For e-sports competition and fiber optic Internet, go wired!  Otherwise wireless with a strong Wireless-N or -AC router should work fine.

Intel's Centrino Wireless-N/AC adapter offers Wireless-AC speeds up to 867 Megabits, and Wireless-N speeds up to 300 Megabits.  This has the latest Wi-Fi technology to operate in heavy traffic, crowded, and large area wireless environments.  It's designed for faster Internet connectivity when resuming your PC from sleep, and has Intel Smart Connect Technology, Intel WiDi Wireless Display a.k.a. Miracast, and Wi-Fi Direct capabilities, along with Bluetooth 4.0.

Software Included

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Operating System

Windows 10 includes Cortana, a speech actuated virtual assistant.  Plug in a microphone (or a webcam would do) and you can say "Hey Cortana" and do web searches by voice.  You can ask Cortana things like "What's the weather like out?" or "What's on my calendar?".  If you ask something it can't answer, it will bring up a web search results page for what you asked.  Cortana is integrated with the new Microsoft Edge web browser which strips out old Internet Explorer parts to work faster.  (Internet Explorer 11 is also included.)  When you buy Microsoft Office 2016, Cortana will also have useful integrations with that too.  Think of Cortana as a helpful, practical, "AI-lite" that takes us closer to the sci-fi inspired computer speech interaction that we've all been waiting for.  You receive free periodic updates to Windows 10 that make Cortana smarter.

Your new Windows 10 Start menu has Live Tiles which provide glanceable information, which you get to customize.  Afterwards the tiles come alive with photos, news headlines, weather reports, and other useful updates.  New Windows 10 apps borrow the popular 3-lines menu icon to hide bigger interface menus within.  This is a more intuitive user interface convention that works on the desktop, and on tablets and smartphones.  The concept is that apps that work on both the PC desktop, and mobile, will be easier to use.

DirectX 12, another Windows 10 exclusive, enables the latest high end gaming graphics on the latest PC hardware.

Windows 10 Pro adds Remote Desktop, the IIS web server, Hyper-V virtualization (bring your own OS licenses), and the ability to join a business network with a Windows Domain.

Anti-virus and anti-malware detection is like a flu-shot.  You need to keep up with yearly subscriptions to keep protecting your computer from the latest threats.  Symantec's Norton Security is an Editor's Choice winning anti-virus and firewall program.

MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware Premium is useful as a secondary layer of protection against viruses and malware.  This can be beneficial in protecting against certain threats that MalwareBytes can identify and eliminate sooner than some anti-virus companies can.  This is recommended for use in conjunction with a primary anti-virus program which we suggest to be a Symantec/Norton product.  The Premium version of MBAM dynamically protects your computer in real-time from malicious websites and certain in-bound Internet sourced threats.
