Fujitsu has updated its Long Lifecycle workstation line-up to include a new version of the Celsius M740 tower format system equipped with Intel's latest Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor family.
Available to order now, the updated Celsius M740 joins the existing Celsius W520 and the Celsius W550 in Fujitsu's Long Lifecycle portfolio of desktop workstations. These have been designed for a minimum lifecycle of 36 months, guaranteeing continuity and availability for long-term projects, the firm said.
The Celsius M740 has been in production for several years, and is aimed at customers running graphics-intensive applications in industry sectors such as computer aided design, media and entertainment, and computer aided engineering.
The latest update provides a performance boost thanks to Intel's recently launched Xeon E5-2600 v4 processor family, which supports more cores and faster 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
Configurations include up to 256GB of memory and a wide range of graphics accelerator cards topped by the Nvidia Quadro M6000. The tower format chassis has 12 drive bays for storage devices, plus room for seven PCI-Express (PCIe) slots, with fast PCIe SSDs an option.
Meanwhile, the workstation itself is nearly silent in operation emitting a noise level of only 20dB during operation owing to an optimised air flow management system inside the chassis, the firm said.
Fujitsu's Long Lifecycle products are designed to offer peace of mind for customers in industries where long-term continuity and availability are crucial.
Customers in markets such as healthcare, telecoms, security, energy and the public sector will benefit from minimised support costs, reduced complexity during the planning process for future components and systems, and long availability of spare parts, Fujitsu said.
The updated Celsius M740 is available with a choice of Windows 10 Pro, Windows 8.1 Pro or Windows 7 Professional 64-bit operating systems. Price depends on region and configuration.
