SHIFT now configurable with Intel's 6 core Core i7 980X processor, SATA 6Gb, and USB 3.0, winning PC Mag's Editors' Choice Award
Union, New Jersey - March 16, 2010 - MAINGEAR Computers, award-winning builders of custom computers for PC gamers and enthusiasts, announces a hardware refresh for the SHIFT everyday supercomputer. The revamped hardware is highlighted by Intel's Core i7 980X 6 core, hyperthreaded 3.33GHz processor, giving enthusiasts the ability to run up to an astonishing 12 threads in parallel enabling your PC to execute multiple CPU intensive tasks at once. SHIFT also now boasts scorching fast SATA 6G that enables Crucial's new RealSSD C300 to reach speeds of 335 MB/s on sustained reads, which is now also available on the SHIFT.
MAINGEAR's implementation of USB 3.0 further solidifies SHIFT's high performance prowess allowing newer flash drives and external SSDs to really fly at speeds up to 5Gbps. To ensure the new state-of-the-art hardware doesn't come at the cost of added decibels, MAINGEAR integrated AcoustiPack sound dampening that keeps the system whisper quiet no matter what's going on under the hood. In their review on March 11th, PC Mag awarded this new SHIFT their coveted Editors' Choice award.
"The new Intel Core i7 980X is the fastest, smartest Desktop PC microprocessor on the planet, and it only makes sense that it's prominently featured in the masterfully hand crafted MAINGEAR SHIFT," said CJ Bruno, VP, GM Intel Americas. "The MAINGEAR SHIFT, featuring an overclocked Intel Core i7 980X, was recognized by PC Magazine as one of the fastest gaming PCs on the market today and awarded their Editors Choice."
