Introducing Puget Labs Certified Systems

Posted in Blog on 06/14/2022 by William George

For a long time here at Puget Systems, we have been putting together computer hardware recommendations for a wide range of applications. A lot of that advice is gathered from the far corners of the internet, by a range of different folks here within our company, but our Labs team delves especially deep into certain software and workflows. As such, we are beginning to brand some of our recommended systems with an additional "Labs Certified" status - and I wanted to take a moment to give you some details on why we are doing this and what it means for you, our customer.

AMD Threadripper PRO 5000WX Series Workstations

Posted in Landing Pages on 06/07/2022 by William George

AMD has updated their workstation-class Threadripper Pro processor family with a new generation: the 5000WX Series. Like previous TR PRO chips, these are based on the same technology used in AMD's EPYC server CPUs but in a more workstation friendly platform. They still support features like an 8-channel memory controller, ECC & registered DDR4, and tons of PCI-Express lanes - but with improved processing speeds per core. We have gathered hardware specifications and will soon have links to articles about how Threadripper PRO performs with many popular applications and workflows.
