On Tuesday Richmond, Virginia-based Velocity Micro launched the Vision M35 desktop powered by AMD's FX-9000 series processors. Configurations start at a meaty $2,799, and are hand-built right here in the USA for gamers, enthusiasts and workstation applications.
"AMD FX Processors have allowed us to reach that 5.0 GHz milestone that seemed so far away just a few years ago," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "With up to 5.0 GHz Max Turbo frequency, the Vision M35 is an absolute monster and a great representation of the Velocity Micro brand. We’re thrilled to have been a part of AMD’s launch of these amazing processors."
According to the company, the Vision M35 will have two FX-9000 options. The AMD FX-9590 has eight unlocked cores, a base clock speed of 4.7 GHz, a max turbo clock speed of 5 GHz, and 16 MB of L2/L3 cache. The AMD FX-9370 has eight unlocked cores, a base clock speed of 4.4 GHz, a max turbo clock speed of 4.7 GHz, and 16 MB of L2/L3 cache.
As for the GPU options, Velocity Micro provides an insane number between Nvidia and AMD, ranging from three eVGA GeForce GTX 780 3 GB GDDR5 cards to a single AMD Radeon HD 7950 3 GB GDDR5 video card. There are also SLI and CrossFire options adding $710 and more to the base price. Some of the GPU card configurations require a 1200 watt power supply which adds yet another $180.
"This AMD system is designed to offer screaming computer power for both gaming and HD content," the company said. "Built in a solid aluminum chassis using premium components and our trademarked precision and benchmarking for maximum performance and remarkable reliability. A rare combination of muscle and value, perfect for the enthusiast looking to live on the bleeding edge."
This powerhouse desktop features the Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard, Velocity Micro's LiquidCool 6 fluid cooling system powered by Asetek, between 8 GB and 32 GB of DDR3-1600 memory, optional Creative Labs Sound Blaster Recon3D sound, and an integrated 52-in-1 media card reader.
