Maingear 'Remix'es high-powered computer

Maingear uses gaming expertise to power Remix PC for creative types

Maingear Computers has launched a high-performance version of the Remix PC for people who work in creative fields such as photography, graphic design, video production and professional audio.

Maingear has long targeted the PC gaming market and is now translating that experience into a high-powered PC designed for creative professionals, the company said.

The Remix integrates NVIDIA Quadro CX and is optimized for Adobe Creative Suite 4, Maingear said. It can encode H.264 video up to four times faster with NVIDIA CUDA-enabled plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro Creative Suite Pro, the company said.

The extra power makes for more fluid image navigation, enabling faster image rotation, zooming and panning, Maingear said. The Remix also offers advance sound insulation, which makes it especially suitable for audio editing, Maingear said.

The PC uses Domino advanced liquid cooling technology from Coolit Systems to keep the Intel Core i7 CPU from overheating.

The Remix is available for Windows Vista Business, Vista Ultimate and XP Pro operating systems and comes with up to a terabyte of storage.

The base Remix model sells for $2,000. A version equipped with NVIDIA Quadro CX costs $4,000.
