Fujitsu Powers the Data-Enriched World with Four New Mobile and Desktop CELSIUS Workstations
- Fujitsu workstations CELSIUS H780 and H980 offer on-the-go performance with the world’s most secure, VR-ready mobile workstations
- The industry’s smallest VR-ready desktop workstation, Fujitsu CELSIUS W580power+, delivers performance, serviceability and reliability, powering Virtual Reality applications for CAD engineers, architects and designers
- No compromise between power and size: the CELSIUS J580 is the world’s only Small Form Factor workstation to pack a full-height graphics card into a 10-liter design
The new workstations are the VR-ready mobile CELSIUS H780, CELSIUS H980, microtower CELSIUS W580/W580power+ and the Small Form Factor CELSIUS J580. All models build in the latest technologies from Intel and NVIDIA, advancing workstations to a new era of processor and graphics accelerated computing. At the same time, Fujitsu has maximized physical and biometric security across the range, enabling secure working for an increasingly mobile workforce, and meeting even the strictest compliance requirements.
Across the line-up, Fujitsu’s new CELSIUS workstations offer biometric authentication. For the CELSIUS H780 and CELSIUS H980 mobile models, Fujitsu’s contact-free Fujitsu PalmSecure
sensors are integrated into the top case – a further measure to protect against data loss in case of device or password theft, in addition to an integrated Smart Card reader and the secure cryptoprocessor TPM 2.0. For the new CELSIUS desktop workstations, Fujitsu offers a keyboard with a built-in PalmSecure sensor, plus no less than three lock mechanisms: a key, a Kensington or a padlock. In addition, ports and cables on the rear of the CELSIUS W580 micro tower are protected by a lockable cable cover.
Digitalization is driving increasing use of large and complex data sets, with some of the biggest data packages being generated in the fields of 3D CAD modeling, visualization, as well as content creation in the media and entertainment industries. The new line-up of Fujitsu CELSIUS workstations is optimized for multiple processor cores which helps ensure that application software and tools can make full use of graphics processing unit (GPU) acceleration. Fujitsu has designed the new workstations to perform flawlessly with large amounts of data, for uses including recording high-resolution videos, projecting on big display walls and creating 3D models from scans. These are applications where workstations are the only choice, since the size of data sets is already beyond the capabilities of standard desktop computers and laptops – while the use of VR is pushing these limits even further.
Ruediger Landto, Head of Product Category Management for Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu EMEIA, says: “Virtual Reality is increasingly used in a range of industries to bring stories to life, to create innovative new designs and build experiences with enriched data – not only in the media and entertainment industry but also in engineering, architecture and education. Our new CELSIUS models pack all the graphics power needed into compact and portable workstations. With cybercrime on the rise and organizations facing stiff penalties for data breaches, workstation users are looking for the highest levels of protection for the intellectual property they are creating. This is why we have boosted security for the new line-up of Fujitsu CELSIUS workstations, integrating PalmSecure, Fujitsu’s unique biometric technology, which is more accurate than fingerprint authentication and more convenient than iris scanning.”
Performance without compromise for designers, architects and engineers
Fujitsu’s mobile workstations are a no-compromise combination of optimum performance and lightweight design. The completely re-designed, new look CELSIUS H780 and CELSIUS H9801
deliver the performance needed by creative and innovative users. Both feature the first Intel hexacore Xeon processors and the latest NVIDIA mobile workstation graphics. The 17.3-inch mobile workstation is equipped with the NVIDIA Quadro P5200, supporting 16GB of GDDR5 memory and 2560 CUDA cores which allows mobile workstations to match the performance of entry-level desktop workstations. Service friendly and portable while still offering a full set of connectivity ports, these 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch CELSIUS models are aimed at engineers, architects and for use in media post production as well as for showcasing fully immersive VR environments.
Fujitsu CELSIUS W580/W580power+
The industry’s smallest VR-ready desktop workstation, the Fujitsu CELSIUS W580/W580power+2, is designed to outperform its 21-liter microtower size. Customers can choose between the low power consumption (280W) model and the cable-free model, which offers cold-plug front access to hard drives for easy replacement or upgrade. This workstation offers maximum productivity and short turn-around times for video editing, MCAD/electrical CAD and applications in architecture, engineering and construction, and is capable of supporting virtual reality. Its small size, whisper-quiet operation and VR capabilities also make it the workstation of choice for education environments
Fujitsu Workstation CELSIUS J580
The Fujitsu Workstation CELSIUS J5803 is a small form factor desktop workstation optimized for 2D and 3D CAD designs, and for connection to multiple displays. Despite a compact 10-liter design, it supports a full-height graphics card of up to NVIDIA Quadro P2000 supporting 1024 CUDA cores, making it the world’s only small form factor workstation boosting performance at such a level. It also supports up to 11 displays, which is ideal for control rooms, surveillance, trading floors and showrooms with the need to highlight 4k content on a display wall.
All Fujitsu CELSIUS workstations are engineered and made in Germany, designed for 24/7 usage. They are certified and optimized for use with leading software applications including Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, PTC and Siemens PLM.
Pricing and availability
The new Fujitsu CELSIUS workstations can be ordered immediately, directly from Fujitsu and through channel partners. Pricing varies by configuration.
