Fujitsu Brings Engineering Excellence and Innovation to CELSIUS Workstations
- Fujitsu launches two new desktop workstations, CELSIUS M770 and CELSIUS R970
- Completely redesigned CELSIUS M770 desktop workstation is packed with new innovative features for easy usability, upgradeability and serviceability
- Fujitsu CELSIUS M770 wins Good Design Award 2017
Drawing on a long history of innovation, Fujitsu continues to set new industry standards with the arrival of the new CELSIUS M770. Remodeled Fujitsu-designed mainboards are a driving force behind the updated features, enabling an innovative new workstation layout and significant original housing characteristics.
Rüdiger Landto, Head of Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu in EMEIA, comments: “We listen to feedback from our customers, the CAD innovators and creators, designers and visual pioneers, who rely on Fujitsu workstations every day. Our product management, design and engineering teams have created a complete new CELSIUS M770 housing to deliver a user and service-friendly machine. Its flawless performance allows users to focus on designing the products of the future, enabling them to bring them to life in new ways with its virtual reality capabilities.”
Fujitsu now brings great design to the hard-working CELSIUS M770 single-processor workstation, with a sleek new chassis that makes key components and features easy to access. Storage disks, which many users remove at the end of their workday, are conveniently located in a front disk tray, which can be released by pushing an integrated button. The tray holds four cold plug disk drive slots, designed for standard 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch hard disk drives or solid state disks. In addition, the new I/O interface at the front comes in two options, one providing easy access to the USB Type-C connector.
Bob Pette, Vice President Professional Visualization at NVIDIA, adds: “From healthcare to oil and gas, professional workloads across industries are growing more complex as they increasingly incorporate new technologies like virtual reality, deep learning and photorealism. The latest CELSISUS workstations powered by the Quadro P6000 provide the horsepower necessary to meet the needs of even the most demanding workstation users.”
Smart Usability and Serviceability
As well as adding an aluminum handle for easy transportation, the new workstation design extends to the side access door – which opens to reveal a clean, cable-free, molded internal housing with dedicated service doors that make replaceable parts accessible at the touch of green buttons. These allow the workstation’s storage, power supply, PCIe cards, memory or systemboard to be accessed and replaced easily by a user or a service team with no need for specialist tools. Although primarily designed as a desktop product, the CELSIUS M770 can also be mounted in a data center rack, requiring only 4U of rack space.
As security is top of mind for many businesses, the latest workstation’s front and side access doors are lockable. In addition, the power supply now features an intrusion switch which immediately flags any unauthorized access via the DeskView Desktop Management Software.
Smart Thermal Management
Since processors and graphics cards can generate significant heat under full load, the M770 features excellent thermal management capabilities thanks to Fujitsu’s innovative airflow design. This comprises three separate cooling channels that route fresh air through the workstation and over the key components. Even under full load, its whisper-quiet operation will not disrupt an office work environment.
Smart Power Supply
The redesigned workstations also include a number of smart power features, including cold-plug functionality that makes removing the power supply extremely easy. The machines support IOT-specific data evaluation – as the digital power supply allows an administrator to capture certain information such as working time. The IPMI-FRU displays Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) information, for example the PSU serial number. In addition, a software based diagnostic tool makes it possible to track and extract information including usage data, temperature as well as the power output of the power supply.
CELSIUS R970 dual-processor desktop workstation
Fujitsu has refreshed its CELSIUS R970 dual-processor desktop workstation, which is optimized for most demanding, memory intensive multi-threaded applications. This latest model includes the new operating system from Microsoft, Windows 10 for Workstations, the new Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family with up to 56 cores, 1 TB DDR4 2,666 ECC memory and up to 2x 1 TB Fujitsu SSD PCIe cards. It can host up to two ultra-high-end graphics cards like the NVIDIA Quadro P6000 and AMD Radeon Pro WX 5100 or three high-end 3D graphics cards. This feature set makes it ideally suited for extremely demanding and memory intensive multi-threaded applications such as high-end design and visualization, simulation, engineering, analysis as well as high-performance computing (HPC).
Notes to editors
Pricing and availability
Both models are available to order now. First shipments of CELSIUS R970 will start in November and of CELSIUS M770 in December. Pricing depends on country and specification.
