Alienware MJ-12

Alienware kicked off its presence at this week's Game Developers Conference by shipping two new versions of its MJ-12 pro workstation. The AMD Opteron-based 8550a and Intel Xeon-based 8550i each support multi-core chips in dual socks, with each sporting two CPU sockets for as many as eight cores in the case of the Intel system. Other elements are characteristically high-end, Alienware notes: the workstations can be ordered with up to 16GB of memory or as many as four 15,000 RPM hard drives. Dual gigabit Ethernet ports are standard across every model.

The custom PC builder ships its most affordable quad-core Intel system with a 1.6GHz Xeon 5310, 1GB of RAM, 250GB of storage, and a Quadro FX 350 for $2949; its AMD equivalent ships with two 2GHz Opteron 2210 processors for $2749.
