    Titan Computer... any opinions?

    Jonathan Wilkof

      My philosophy has been buy the best computer with room for upgrades and keep it for a long time.  I currently run a Dell T5400 with Dual Xeon Quad cores at 2.5 Ghz that is now 10 years old and showing it's age.  I do quite a bit with Solidworks, but also many other apps at the same time (ERP system, SQL DB work, MS Office, etc).

       

      Looking for the next great thing.  I've been looking at Boxx, Xi, and recently found Titan Workstation.  Titan seems to have the highest performance with costs 10-15% lower than the others.  I'm not considering Dell, HP, etc, because they really aren't pushing the boundaries like the other guys.  I've read reviews on this forum and people seem to really like Boxx.  Anyone have experience with Titan?  I'm going nuts over the x299 Vulcan 10!

          Great philosophy for sure.  The new Intel processors are definitely screamers.  Upgrade to a Quadro card and you have a nice SW machine.  If you want it be really fast ditch that SATA SSD and go for the Samsung Pro M.2 SSD (the motherboard can support 2 of them if you are greedy like me and want to run your models on a SSD, its been shown to give an additional 12% increase in performance.)  Those drives have crazy good benchmarks.  They are literally 6 times the speed of that SATA drive.  The CPU will definitely keep up with multitasking.  There is a lot of room for expansion in that thing too.
