MaxVision Eight-Core PCs

System builder MaxVision on Tuesday launched a pair of heavy-duty computers designed to provide as much power as possible in the harshest conditions possible. The MaxRax (pictured) and MaxCube each pack up to eight processor cores but can withstand warzone-level conditions: each has a custom-designed Baghdad Filter that keeps out 99 percent of dust. Either is toughened for military-grade shock resistance; the MaxRax is even tough enough to be mounted in a helicopter, MaxVision is keen to point out.

Prices depend on need: the MaxCube (shown below) is built as a high-end workstation and ships with a pair of dual- or quad-core Xeons, two notebook-sized rugged 100GB hard drives, and either a DVD or Blu-Ray rewriter. A "well-configured" system starts at $16,000, the company says. The MaxRax shifts its attention towards servers and has three small systems in one box, each of which can have as many as two quad-core AMD Opteron 2000 CPUs, four 120GB notebook drives, and a DVD burner; a system with three of these sub-systems can ship for $50,000.
