Form Factor



Third generation Dual Intel® Xeon® E5 2600v4 processor

  • Speed: 1.7GHz to 3.5GHz
  • Cache: 15Mb to 55Mb
  • Cores: 6 to 22
  • Alternatively for less demanding requirements an E5- 1600v3 Intel® Xeon® Processor can be used and later upgraded if required.The XENON Nitro™ Workstations are built to meet a broad range of Visual and HPC computing tasks and can be customised to operate more efficiently with the type of application being used.


Support for up to 1024Gb DDR4 High Speed DIMM error correcting memory. Supports 2400/2133/1866MHz clock speeds. High Performance memory is selected to reduce jitter and latency to ensure predictable performance when memory and CPU are optimised to exceed published specifications.

  • Single bit memory errors are corrected
  • Double bit memory errors are detected
  • Memory operates at 1.2V
