Amulet Hotkey Unveils Best-in-Class Density Workstations and Entry-Level Models with Intel Xeon E-2100 Processors
Amulet Hotkey announced key additions to the CoreStation workstation family based on the Dell EMC PowerEdge FX2, M-series and Dell Precision platforms.

Amulet Hotkey's CoreStation solutions help speed the design, visualization and simulation of anything from animation and movies to cars, airplanes and financial trading models. They allow valuable IP to be moved into the data center to boost productivity, security and availability. Professionals can connect to graphics-intensive applications anytime, and from anywhere using Amulet Hotkey zero clients or mobile devices.

The CoreStation WFC640 blade workstation incorporates unique PCIe expansion modules and GPU cards to create a powerful platform to handle a broad range of tough workloads. Developed in collaboration with Dell EMC and NVIDIA product engineering teams, the Amulet Hotkey DXF-EXP-W modules can support up to eight NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs within the FX2s chassis while maintaining the benefits of the FX2 architecture. The WFC640 delivers class-leading density and efficiency by fitting up to four multi-GPU and dual-socket workstations in an industry standard 2U rackmount form factor.

The DXM-P5000 mezzanine card for the CoreStation WM640 uses the NVIDIA Quadro P5000 GPU for a 2x increase in GPU memory and 1.5x increase in GPU performance while delivering scalability and efficiency. This enables new applications and workloads for blade workstations that were not previously possible.

The CoreStation WR3930 1U rack workstation is optimized for single threaded application performance at affordable price points. Intel Xeon E-2100 or 8th generation Core i7, i5, i3 processors deliver clock speeds up to 3.8 GHz / 4.7GHz turbo. Amulet Hotkey DXP4 PCIe cards enable unique multi-monitor options with multi-GPU and remote display protocol acceleration. When using Intel integrated graphics or full-size graphics cards, the Amulet Hotkey low-profile DXH4 PCIe card provides secure remote access for up to four monitors. With a combination of NVIDIA Quadro P6000 graphics cards and Intel Core i7-8700K processors, the Dell Precision 3930 rack is the world's fastest workstation.

"The need to deliver scalable and secure infrastructure with exceptional performance for demanding professionals is significant," said Tony Hilliard, global sales director, Amulet Hotkey Inc. "Our new CoreStation solutions combine powerful GPUs, flexible platform options and class-leading density to address this and help companies focus on innovation to gain a competitive edge."

"The NVIDIA Quadro P5000 redefines the graphics and compute performance of blade workstations with breakthrough capabilities for workflows infused with artificial intelligence and photorealism," said Bob Pette, vice president, professional visualization, NVIDIA. "Customers that need creative freedom while working with large datasets and complex models can turn to high-density workstations integrating NVIDIA Quadro GPUs and Amulet Hotkey technology."

"Today workforce transformation is being driven by need for increased productivity while optimizing graphic-intensive applications and customers are looking for solutions that drive performance and efficiency while delivering maximum return on investment," said Ron Pugh, vice President and general manager for the Americas, Dell EMC OEM Solutions. "We are excited to work with Amulet Hotkey on innovative solutions for our customers to increase productivity, creativity and accelerate growth."


The CoreStation WFC640, WM640 and WR3930 are available now. They can support multiple protocols such as Teradici PCoIP, Citrix HDX and Mechdyne TGX as well as connection brokers such as Leostream and VMware Horizon.
