Two New "Professional" Series Models from MusicXPC

June 8, 2005

Professional C3 and C4 are Windows-based computers specially tweaked for media production. The computers are configured from the BIOS up to handle dozens of audio tracks, effects and virtual instruments.

The Professional C3 features an Intel Pentium 4 processor running at 3.0 GHz on an 800 MHz front side bus. The machine comes with 512MB of DDR-400 RAM, a 16X DVD-/+RW and two separate 7200RPM hard drives providing a total of 280GB of storage. The hard drives [120GB and 160GB] also have 8MB cache for fast throughput and high track counts.

The Professional C4 features a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 processor on an 800MHz bus and ships with 1GB of DDR400 RAM as standard. Add to that a 16X DVD-/+RW, 320GB of hard disk storage split over two 7200RPM 8MB-cache drives, Gigabit LAN and dual VGA outputs.

The Professional C3 and C4 come with virtually all popular interfaces, ports and connectors including FireWire, USB 2.0, 8x AGP, PCI and S/PDIF.

Both computers feature heat-pipe technology which ferries heat away from the CPU without the use of the large noisy fans that usually reside about the processor. The result is very quiet computer operation, ideal for music production and recording spaces where noise is public enemy number one.

The C3 and C4 come with a comprehensive back-up and restore utility. The back-up system allows the user to restore the computer to factory setting even after a catastrophic failure, a drive crash or even a re-formatting. The factory state is stored in an invisible part of the main hard drive. This feature will allow musicians to minimize downtime caused by system failures.
