These sleek new Threadripper workstations pack up to 4 GPUs

There are quite a few custom PC builders to choose from, but what if your needs extend beyond just a powerful gaming PC? Maingear has a solution, thanks to its new range of high-end prebuilt systems tailored for professionals spanning various industries.

The company’s new Pro WS series includes a collection of desktop workstations designed to excel in the most demanding tasks. The company says that these systems have been tailored for game developers, photo editors, graphic designers, videographers, 3D rendering artists, music producers, CAD engineers, data scientists, and AI/Machine Learning developers.

Maingear currently has a total of three workstation options that can be customized according to your needs. As per the company, you can even configure it with the newly launched Threadripper 7000 CPUs.

The first one is the Pro WS which comes in a standard mid-tower design. It is configured in Fractal Design’s North mid-tower chassis with elegant wood-finish panels on the front. You can opt for a glass or mesh side panel while core hardware options include the latest Intel Core or AMD Ryzen CPUs, paired with dual Nvidia RTX 6000 GPUs for formidable graphics performance. If you remember Maingear recently launched two custom gaming PC options in partnership with Fractal Design and Noctua.

Cooling for the CPU is handled by Noctua along with additional case fans, ensuring optimal temperature management, while memory options for up to 128GB of DDR5. Storage needs are met with choices between Samsung 990 NVMe SSDs (1-4TB options) or Seagate IronWolf HDDs (8-16TB options). To handle all the demanding hardware there is a 1600W PSU while operating system options include Windows 11 Pro, Linux, or a dual-boot setup. As a testament to its reliability, the ProWS is backed by a 2-year Pro Solutions Warranty, with the option to upgrade to a 3-year warranty.

The Pro WS Max and Pro RS are categorized as extreme performance workstations designed to accommodate expanded performance capabilities and are configurable with some of the most potent components. The ProWS Max, housed in the Define 7 XL chassis from Fractal Design, offers a full tower solution, while the Pro RS, in a 4U rackmount form factor, is based on the Silverstone RM44 chassis.

The thinnest laptops you can buy
Fitbit Versa Lite Review

The thinnest laptops of today are paper-thin compared to their predecessors, and though they aren't literally that trim, they're getting pretty close. In recent several years, one of the biggest advances made to the modern laptop is that the chassis continues to shrink. Best of all, battery life and performance continue to improve. It's a no-compromise situation — and we love it.

One of the thinnest laptops around is the Apple MacBook Air M2 at just 0.44 inches thick. It's incredibly thin but provides awesome performance and battery life thanks to Apple's excellent M2 CPUs. There are some other excellent laptops that are also incredibly thin. Here are some of our favorites.

HTC just fixed a major shortcoming of standalone VR headsets
Tech of the Week HTC Vive Tracker

HTC Vive recently announced a new virtual reality tracker specifically designed for standalone VR headsets like the Vive XR Elite and Vive Focus 3. The VR division of this tech giant also makes base stations and motion-tracking hardware that's required for most PC VR headsets.

In VR, your head motion is detected by sensors in the headset while your hand position is captured by the controllers. What's missing is body tracking. That means the game or app has no way of knowing for certain where your feet and hips are. That's why trackers are needed.
