The xw4100 uses the Intel 875P high-performance chipset and it includes Intel Performance Acceleration Technology for enhanced system performance due to reduced memory access latencies. The workstation also is optimized for Intel Hyper-Threading Technology to efficiently run multiple applications simultaneously and to speed processor-intensive tasks. The device’s convertible mini-tower and tool-less chassis are designed to provide mechanical computer-aided engineering (MCAD/CAE), digital content creation (DCC), and geographic information systems (GIS) with the flexibility they need for their work environments. The chassis allows it to go easily from deskside to desktop and improves serviceability and heat management. The workstation also features a convenient front-access input/output panel and two USB v2.0 ports.
