The world's most powerful personal computer
CoreMC creates the new EnterprisePro class of products bringing the highest performance and quality to the masses.
What is EnterprisePro? In the past, there was a need for a product class to be created for average consumers requiring professional level products, this was called Prosumer. Today we face the same needs but the demand has increased to even higher levels, the new EnterprisePro personal computing systems bring the absolute highest performance and quality to the masses. The concept was to use enterprise-level components found in today’s super computers, which are designed for maximum performance and stability, to create compact computer systems for personal or studio use.
The World's Most Powerful: CoreMC can be equipped with up to dual Xeon® 8-core processors (16-cores total), 768GB of RAM, 21TB of hard drive storage, the highest performance video cards and best quality audio interfaces. Based on the Windows® 8 (64-bit) operating system, CoreMC is capable of running any Windows compatible software for music production, HD video editing or even gaming.
Instant Access on Demand: With CoreMC, it's now possible for the user to virtually run all needed applications at once, load everything into RAM and leave the system on so it can provide instant access whenever it’s needed. The very same features provided by today’s super-computing mainframe systems.
Elegance and Quality : Each CoreMC is housed in a stylish black brushed aluminum chassis equipped with four (4) oversized 140mm fans providing ample airflow, yet able to rotate at reduced speeds for near silent operation. A front name plate is part of the design and acts as a baffle to further reduce operational noise. Extras include removable dust filters to keep the interior of the system clean, shock mounting for hard drives and optical drives to reduce noise and vibration, and even anti-vibration pads for the power supply. For those needing advamced cooling for the system, four (4) coolant hose ports are provided on the rear of the chassis with star grommets providing a professional fit.
Supreme Video Performance: Four (4) PCI-E 3.0 (x16) slots, One (1) PCI-E 3.0 (x8) and One (1) PCI-E 3.0 (x4) are available, which can be equipped with video cards ranging from the 1GB high-performance card included in the base model to 3-way SLI GTX 680 cards or even a Quadro 6000 card with a GPU designed specifically for Adobe software acceleration.
Unmatched Audio Quality: CoreMC can be equipped with a wide variety of audio interfaces including: Echo MIA MINI Digital Audio card (2ins, 2outs , MIDI, S/PDIF, 24bit-96kHz) --or-- RME Hammerfall HDSP 9652 (3 x ADAT digital I/O, 1 x SPDIF digital I/O, S/PDIF, 1 x Word clock I/O (BNC), 1 x ADAT Sync In (9-pin D-type), 2 x MIDI I/O, 32 channels high-speed MIDI, 12 channels 96 kHz/24 bit for record and playback on ADAT optical) --or-- RME HDSPe RayDAT (36 Inputs / 36 Outputs, 4 x ADAT I/O (up to 192 kHz via S/MUX4), 1 x AES/EBU I/O (192 kHz), 1 x SPDIF I/O (192 kHZ), 2 x MIDI I/O, Supported sample frequencies: Internally 32, 44.1, 48, 64, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 kHz. Externally 28 kHz - 200 kHz)
Ahead of the Curve: More often than not it’s software that is more advanced than hardware, thereby forcing users to upgrade expensive hardware every few years. CoreMC is the reverse of this because it is so advanced; many software applications and even the operating system cannot yet fully utilize its capabilities at this time. For example, the current version of Windows 8 Professional can only access up to 512GB of RAM, however; it is nice to know when its features are improved in future versions, CoreMC will still be able to take full advantage of it without having to be replaced. Save time, money and future headaches by investing in advanced hardware now instead of playing catch-up later. This is what we call future-proofing your investment.
The Goldilocks Principle: At Music Computing we believe in providing our customers with what they need, when they need it. This means you can start with the base configuration for the CoreMC with a single Xeon 6-core processor, three (3) 2GB memory module (total of 6GB for triple channel access), one (1) 1TB hard drive and a 1GB video card all for just $2,499 and add more as you need it. That's the magic about the new CoreMC (Gen3), it's the right size tool for your needs the day you purchase it, and it will stay the perfect tool for you for many years to come.
Incredibly Long Lifespan: Enterprise-class computer components found in super computers are designed to be used for decades. As each super computer is very expensive, they need to have a long lifespan to justify the cost. Therefore companies like Intel and others who provide the core technologies are obligated to keep supporting them for much longer than usual. This is why it makes better sense to invest in server-based hardware than consumer-grade versions, which will require the user buying new computers every few years.
Unlimited Power and Upgrades: Every EnterprisePRO product we offer including the CoreMC has the ability to be used in a CLUSTER. That means when you top out the CoreMC, you can connect more of them together and they will essentially perform as a single unit. By utilizing clustering, they should last decades and you will not have to scrape the original CoreMC as it will continue to be a vital part of your computing system. This is a great way to keep your investment working for you longer.
Just Remember: The CoreMC has the capability of running up to 768GB of RAM. On the surface the user may think that is excessive and will never need that amount. However, HD and 4K video editing can easily consume hundreds of Gigabytes of RAM memory. For Enterprise-Class servers in data centers world-wide, the minimum amount of RAM is 128GB standard, so it is essential the CoreMC can provide sufficient memory for users today and also years into the future. Rumor has it in 1981 Bill Gates said: "640K is more memory than anyone will ever need." However when asked recently Bill says "I've said some stupid things and some wrong things, but not that. No one involved in computers would ever say that a certain amount of memory is enough for all time." So as far-fetched as it may seem for the CoreMC to use up 768GB of RAM, it WILL happen and you'll be right there, instep ready to keep on working.
World's Most Powerful Gaming Computer too!: While we originally designed CoreMC mainly for music and video production, if you configure a mid level CoreMC with dual Xeon 8-core processors, 24GB of RAM and triple SLI GTX680 video cards with water-cooling, it would in fact be one of the most, if not the most, powerful gaming machines available today. The cool thing is as games demand more RAM you can keep being king of the hill and through clustering, even add more processor cores if needed!
Custom Options: Rack versions of the CoreMC are available in a compact 4U (15.25" depth) chassis as well as a full size version with redundant power supplies. Thunderbolt is also available via PCIe expansion cards. Please contact us for complete details.
