With PREVAILPRO, PNY Launches the World’s First Four 4K Display and VR Capable Thin and Light Mobile Workstations at SIGGRAPH 2017

SIGGRAPH 2017, LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, [July 30, 2017] – PNY Technologies reset mobile workstation expectations by launching extraordinarily powerful, thin and light PNY PREVAILPRO P4000 and P3000 mobile workstations.  With their NVIDIA Max-Q design, these innovative systems are designed from the NVIDIA Quadro GPU out, to deliver capabilities, compute performance, unmatched simultaneous four-display screen real estate, and immersive VR (P4000), to drive next generation workflows across industries ranging from AEC and Manufacturing to M&E and Scientific and Technical computing.

“Until today mobile workstations really weren’t very mobile.  Our PREVAILPRO series breaks barriers like the ability to drive up to four 4K UHD displays at once, or render vividly interactive VR experiences, without breaking backs or budgets.” Steven Kaner, Vice President of Commercial and OEM Sales at PNY Technologies, said, “The increasing power efficiency of NVIDIA Quadro graphics and our P4000-based P955 NVIDIA Max-Q technology platform, allows PNY to deliver professional performance and features in thin and light, cool and quiet, form factors never before seen.”

Taking PNY’s longstanding relationship with NVIDIA to the next level, PREVAILPRO features powerful and power efficient Pascal architecture P4000 and P3000 mobile GPUs, with Intel® Core i7-7700HQ CPUs and the HM175 Express Chipset, to implement a carefully balanced system architecture that delivers superior performance per watt, or viewed by another metric, better features and benefits per pound or kilogram.

“Despite ever increasing mobility, creative professionals require workstation class performance and features from their mobile laptops to accomplish their best work, from any location,” says Bob Pette, Vice President, NVIDIA Professional Visualization. “With our new Max-Q design and powered by NVIDIA Quadro P4000 and P3000 mobile GPUs, PNY’s new PREVAILPRO lineup offers incredibly light and thin, no compromise, powerful and versatile mobile workstations.” 

Either PREVAILPRO system features a 15.6” 4K UHD or FHD display – and the unrivalled ability to drive three external displays (2x mDP 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 with HDCP) and a built-in display at up to 4K resolution, for a total of four simultaneously active displays – providing unequalled screen real estate – a feature unavailable on any competing system.  The P4000 version supports fully immersive VR, NVIDIA VRWorks software development kit, and innovative immersive VR environments based on the Unreal or Unity engines, a breakthrough for any thin and light mobile workstation.

With 8GB (P4000) or 6GB (P3000) of GDDR5 GPU memory, up to 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz DRAM, 512GB SSD availability, HDD options up to 2TB, a comprehensive array of I/O ports, and the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth implementations, PREVAILPRO is compatible with all commonly used peripherals and network environments – and provides demanding professionals with the interfaces and storage capacity needed to complete business-critical tasks.  Depending on use case, Mobile Mark 2014 projects the embedded Li polymer battery can reach 5 hours over a lifetime of 1,000 charge/discharge cycles.  

PREVAILPRO’s thin and light form factor measures 14.96” x 9.8” x 0.73” (379mm x 248mm x 18mm) and weighs 4.8 lbs. (2.17kg).  Quad display and VR power has never been this svelte and portable.

During SIGGRAPH Exhibition hours, PREVAILPRO presentations will take place in PNY’s booth # 317 on Tuesday, August 1 and Wednesday, August 2 at 11:30 am and 2:30 pm.  Another PREVAILPRO session takes place on Thursday, August 3 at 11:30 am.  PNY management and staff will be available to answer questions during SIGGRAPH 2017, and press inquiries are welcome throughout the show.
