What is the difference between a workstation and a PC?
The difference between a workstation and a PC for private or normal business use is the equipment. The core element of a workstation is a professional ISV-certified graphics card. Furthermore, workstations use high-performance processors and a lot of powerful RAM. This gives a workstation the performance for 3D design, computer simulations, video rendering and virtual reality applications.
What to look for when buying a workstation?
To achieve maximum productivity, the workstation must be able to fully exploit the potential of the application.
Recommendations from manufacturer of the applications
The manufacturers of software applications usually give recommendations for suitable hardware. When purchasing a workstation, it is worthwhile to consider the system specifications recommended by the software manufacturer.
These indicate, for example, whether the application can use processors with several cores, or whether it works better with only one processor core with a high clock rate.
If you pay attention to the requirements of the software you are using, this has two positive effects:
- there are no bottlenecks in the system that slow down productivity
- the workstation is not unnecessarily made more expensive by superfluous features.
The security of the ISV certificate
When choosing a graphics card, the decisive factor is whether it has an ISV certificate for the application used.
The ISV (Independent Software Vendor), i.e. the seller of software applications, tests the hardware together with the software. He checks, for example, whether a graphics card is compatible with a certain CAD software and functions stably. If this is the case, the ISV issues the graphics card the ISV certificate for the CAD application.
Therefore, the ISV certification confirms that the application is optimally supported by the graphics card and that the graphics card manufacturer supplies the appropriate drivers.
