CAD Workstations

CAD Workstations used to be a specialist market for business and IT companies involving large systems, often based on server technology.

However, due to huge developments in processor, chassis and graphics technology in recent times a CAD workstation no longer requires a large powerhouse system.

With the development of low temperature high core count processors, that require very limited cooling to perform at high clock speeds, the CAD Workstation can now be found in small form factor and Mini PC formats, as well as in Laptops smaller than your ordinary desktop PC. Obviously, there are still options for larger desktop systems if required, it really depends on what our customers need.

Here at Continental we have the expertise to provide advice on all of your CAD requirements. With our large number of suppliers we have can design Intel® based systems or AMD based systems to match whichever combination of Operating System and Software you require.

We build systems compatible with software from Autodesk*, Solidworks* and Creo* and others.
