Stratosphere Express Z4 is our affordable, newly updated workstation supporting four monitors, available now with new high-performance 14th Gen Intel processors first shipping today.
With our extensive product configurator, you can choose the options you value while keeping your total purchase price affordable.
Stratosphere Express is our second most popular system platform after Stratosphere Pro. While Stratosphere Pro starts with a recommended configuration incorporating a wide range of features, Stratosphere Express starts with a more basic configuration and allows you to add only the key features of importance to you. The resulting configuration often costs hundreds of dollars less than Stratosphere Pro while still including matching performance features such as CPU, RAM, SSD and graphics.
Stratosphere Express Z4 is as powerful and as affordable as you want it to be.
Industry-fastest 14th Gen "Raptor Lake-R" Intel Core i5 / i7 / i9 CPUs!
Stratosphere Express Z4 is fully customizable with a long list of options, headlined by three new class-leading 14th Gen Intel Core CPUs first available today. Of these, the fastest is Intel Core i9-14900KF, newly crowned the world's fastest desktop CPU.
The three new 14th Gen Intel upgrade CPUs deliver up to 151% faster performance than the standard 13th Gen Intel Core i5-13400 CPU, or 2.5X the base CPU speed.
Configure and quote your system today with the CPU that meets your budget:
- Core i5-12400F: 12th Gen, 6 cores, up to 4.4 GHz (standard)

How Intel Thread Director improves multitasking performance
Intel's new 14th Gen Core CPUs maintain Intel's industry lead for CPU performance, beating AMD's latest Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs in benchmark tests such as the widely respected Cinebench R23 test.
In addition to winning synthetic tests composed of pure multithreaded operations, Intel 14th Gen CPUs trump AMD CPUs in handling competing workloads, such as when a user's foreground tasks are competing with ongoing background tasks. Through an Intel-exclusive called Intel Thread Director, Intel's most advanced CPUs significantly boost multitasking performance by prioritizing user foreground tasks, resulting in a more responsive computing experience.
Intel Thread Director is a workload management controller on the CPU that works directly with the operating system to ensure that top-priority tasks are executed first and with the highest performance. Intel worked together with Microsoft to implement the new technology, and currently only Windows 11 is able to take advantage of Intel Thread Director. For this reason, we recommend Windows 11 for Stratosphere Pro Z-series. We also offer Windows 10, but Windows 10 cannot take advantage of Intel Thread Director.
Intel's 13th Gen and 14th Gen processors employ an innovative hybrid architecture combining high-performance CPU cores (Performance cores, or P-cores) and high-efficiency CPU cores (Efficient cores, or E-cores) on the same chip. Intel Thread Director segregates background operations on high-efficiency E-cores, while promoting foreground priority tasks to the high-performance cores (P-cores). The least important tasks are assigned to virtual cores, which use free cycles on P-cores through a method known as Hyper-threading or simultaneous multithreading.
The result is the first CPU optimized for multitasking and responsive computing, in which your high-priority work gets the CPU's top focus. Now your top-priority work is far less likely to suffer from intermittent slowdowns and stalls caused by background tasks grabbing the focus of the same CPU cores being used your top-priority tasks. Priority is determined by Windows 11, which monitors which applications are visible to the user, with particular priority given to the application that has the user's current focus, as well as processes that are assigned high process priority in Windows.
Intel Thread Director requires Windows 11, which is uniquely optimized to work with this on-chip Intel microcontroller to manage competing workloads on 13th Gen and 14th Gen Intel CPUs.
