The Artifex - Built to Create
The Artifex is Alexander PCs entry level content creation build. We designed this model specifically for those who like to do serious editing work with photos and video. Since we've had so many creative users ask for small form factor builds, we've re-designed The Artifex to accomodate!
For our redesign, we've opted for a mini ITX form factor in the absolutely stunning Lian Li Q58 Gen 4 case - your choice of black or white.
We chose the ASUS ROG Strix B660-I Gaming WiFi for this one. It brings premium grade power delivery to the fold, and also provides all the connectivity and performance you need with onboard WiFi 6, bluetooth, and USB Type C.
For the CPU, we offer the option of an Intel Core i5-12600K or Core i7-12700K. Both of these latest generation Intel chips boast a hybrid core architecture that goes hard in the paint for all your editing programs.
We also wanted to keep you on the leading edge of performance with respect to memory, so we've chosen a DDR5-compatible platform to ensure you won't be digging into your piggy bank for upgrades again in the near future. Speaking of DDR5, we're delivering 32GB of Kingston FURY Beast at 5200 MHz speeds for this one.
For a GPU, we went with a GeForce RTX 3060 or 3060 Ti, depending on your needs. We like NVidia’s chipset much better than Radeon for application acceleration, and whether you go 3060 or 3060 Ti, this one will shred your rendering tasks! As a bonus, these GPUs have serious gaming chops as well for your in-between work time.
For your primary drive, we've selected the Western Digital SN850 Black. Eye-watering speeds of 7000/5300 MB/s read/write mean this one can take anything you can throw at it. We've added a second M.2 NVMe SSD drive as well - 2TB of storage in this one for all your editing files. Or, you know, maybe a large games library...
We power this one with an efficient 750-watt 80-Plus Gold rated SFX form factor power supply unit.
The Artifex comes with Windows 11 Professional edition installed and updated.
