With the launch of Adobe CS5 today comes another announcement of some import. The gang over at MAINGEAR has announced a system called the Quantum SHIFT. This is a dual CPU (Intel Xeon) system with an NVIDIA Quadro GPU inside. The system will be built specifically for the needs of photography and videography professionals.
The Dual Xeons will give more than enough CPU horsepower while you can chose either a Quadro FX or a GTX 480 to handle the new CUDA accelerated Mercury Engine found in Premier Pro. The shift also uses a vertical design to keep these GPUs cool. The new MAINGEAR SHIFT certainly looks like an excellent entry into the high-end professional market.
