Go beyond Stratosphere Pro Z-series with a robust, AI-ready platform

Stratosphere Pro Z-series is our most popular desktop platform, featuring Intel processors and platform features designed to meet the needs of demanding professionals and financial traders.

Stratosphere Evolution Z3 for Pro Visualization and Design goes beyond Stratosphere Pro Z-series by offering a more powerful base platform, offering many advanced features standard and also the ability to support AI and GPU compute applications with up to two powerful graphics cards.

Here are some of the many standard features that go beyond Stratosphere Pro Z-series base specs:

  • Workstation-class motherboard with much greater expansion support
  • Dual PCI Express 5.0 graphics card slots, supporting the fastest graphics cards required for AI / GPU compute and operating in PCIe 5.0 x8 mode when two GPUs are installed. On Stratosphere Pro Z-series and most Intel desktops, any secondary graphics card is limited to PCIe 4.0 x4 mode, which is adequate for display use but which can significantly reduce the power of a GPU used for GPU compute or as an AI accelerator.
  • Fractal Define 7 case, supporting up to three dual-slot graphics cards, a front DVD/Blu-ray drive, much more drive expansion, and larger radiators for liquid cooling.
  • 1200W power supply vs 750W capacity
  • Intel Core i7-14700K standard processor, with 20 CPU cores and 3.4 - 5.6 GHz clock speed. This is Intel's fastest Core i7 processor and is upgradable to the top-of-line Intel Core i9-14900K, with 24 CPU cores and peak 6.0GHz clock speed. Meanwhile Stratosphere Pro Z-series has Intel Core i5-14500 standard processor, with 14 CPU cores and max 5.0GHz clock speed.
  • DeepCool AK620 ultra-quiet premium CPU cooler, certified to cool even the very hot Core i9-14900K CPU with exceptionally quiet cooling.
  • 64GB DDR5-5600 RAM, twice the standard RAM for Stratosphere Pro and also faster.
  • 1TB SSD: Gen4 NVMe, upgradable to 4TB Gen5 SSD or 8TB Gen4 SSD..

You may configure your new Stratosphere Evolution workstation with any of the following Intel CPUs, which you can choose in our configurator:

  • Intel Core i7-14700K: 14th Gen, 20 cores/28 threads, 3.4-5.6 GHz (standard)
  • Intel Core i9-14900K: 14th Gen 24 cores/32 threads, 3.2-6.0 GHz (upgrade)
Benefits for GPU-accelerated computing

In GPU-accelerated computing, one or more graphics cards are repurposed to become coprocessors in the system, able to marshal their thousands of compute cores and hundreds of tensor cores for computing work instead of creating a 3D virtual world (typically for gaming). Led by NVIDIA, GPU computing is driving AI neural networks and machine learning in general. GPUs are so successful at high-performance computing tasks that NVIDIA now makes the great majority of its revenue from data centers.

Stratosphere Evolution Z3 for Pro Visualization and Design goes beyond Stratosphere Pro and mainstream desktop PCs by supporting two graphics cards at the high bandwidth required for GPU compute applications. Compared to Stratosphere Pro and similar systems, this system offers 2 to 4 times the typical bandwidth available for a second graphics card, enabling GPU compute applications two GPUs for nearly twice the compute power of a single GPU.

Beyond AI, GPU compute also benefits content creators through applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Lightroom. These applications now depend on GPUs for processing images and video, with particular benefits from the fastest tensor cores found in the latest NVIDIA GPUs. The software offers new AI-powered features such as noise reduction and image scaling, which can take more than a minute to process per image on entry-level graphics cards, or as fast as 10-15 seconds on the fastest GPUs.

Massive internal storage + fast Thunderbolt 4 external storage connectivity

Massive SSD and hard drive expansion options help content creators maintain fast local storage libraries for highest performance. In addition, the system supports external storage arrays at fastest possible performance though dual Thunderbolt 4 ports (40Gb/s) that can connect to external storage arrays at much faster data rates than even 10G LANs support. Thunderbolt 4 operates at up to 40 times the transfer rate as a typical 1Gb/s LAN.
