The Artifex is Alexander PCs content creation build. We designed this model specifically for those who like to do serious editing work with photos and video. This system is driven by the awesome AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU with 8 cores/16 threads that will run at speeds up to 4.4 GHz. With a 1 TB PCIe based M.2-2280 NVMe Solid State Drive for the operating system and your editing software, and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM at an enhanced speed of 3200MHz, this machine is definitely ready to do battle with your Adobe and similar programs. We add a 2TB HDD for convenient, inexpensive mass storage.
For a GPU, we went with an NVidia GeForce GTX 1660 - we like NVidia’s chipset much better than Radeon for application acceleration. And the GTX 1660 has serious gaming chops as well. Platformed on the rock solid MSI B550-A Pro motherboard, this one is compatible with next-gen hardware for future upgrades. We power this one with an efficient 650-watt 80-Plus Bronze rated power supply unit, and we round out a polished, professional look with sleeved cables extensions in your choice of color.
The Artifex comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and fully updated.
