Mediaworkstations unveil the portable Threadripper Workstation a-XP – WePC

Various configuration options are available. The basic CPU offered is an AMD Threadripper 3960X, but you can also upgrade to a 3970X or 3990X. You can choose between 32 GB and 64 GB RAM. There are numerous SSD options available, starting at 250 GB up to 2 TB and offering space for up to two drives. On the GPU side, you have options for the entire RTX range from Nvidia, including standard consumer cards such as the 2060 and 2080 ti, the ridiculously powerful Titan RTX and the Quadro and Tesla workstation cards.

This is not the type of system that we would recommend to most users. It was clearly designed for very specific professional contexts where you need uncompromising workstation level performance in a somewhat portable form factor. But it is a funny curiosity and shows how much freedom different manufacturers have to design computers, laptops and components in such a way that they correspond to different budgets, requirements and usage scenarios. This isn’t the type of machine anyone would reasonably buy just to play a little Minecraft or Fortnite, but it’s still an interesting system.

We are not entirely sure of the screen’s specifications as it is not listed on the Media Workstations website. We hope it has at least one decent screen, however.

With a starting price of $ 7,997, this is certainly not a mass-market machine. Equipped with all of the top-end parts and extras, it’s a staggering $ 45,000. We can’t see this come in handy in any very specific circumstance, but it sure would be nice to have all that processing power in one portable device.
