Digital Audio Wave has launched a new line of PC DAW systems featuring an ultra-quiet, high performance platform utilizing the BTX architecture. The new DAWin BWX PC DAWs are based on the patent-pending design that optimizes Balanced Technology Extended (BTX) architecture, resulting in a quieter and more reliable PC. DAW's BWX series PCs circulate up to two times more air than traditional PCs, so internal components like processors, memory and hard drives are cooled more efficiently.
The DAWin BWX PCs build on BTX design to incorporate large, slow-speed fans which provide whisper-quiet operation. Also, the overall performance is improved by design, which better cools the CPU that faces into the wind tunnel. This design also allows a high end video card to occupy only one slot, instead of two, leaving an additional slot for power users to fill. DAW's BWX desktop case is ready for expansion with seven bays and four PCI slots (one PCI Express x16, two PCI and one PCI Express x1 slot.)
The DAWin BWX incorporates the new Intel Pentium 4 600 sequence processors that are ready to support 64-bit software using Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology. HT (Hyper-Threading) Technology can make it easier and faster to take on several tasks. Also, the new Intel Pentium 4 600 sequence processors have twice the cache (2MB L2 Cache), enabling improved performance, enhanced power management and improved virus protection.
These new PCs can be customized with the latest high-end features. Customers can choose several options of SATA hard drives, up to 4GB of DDR2 memory, and up to 1.2TB (1200GB) of storage . The systems also feature integrated Gigabit (10/100/1000) Ethernet to ensure fast data transfer over a network connection.
Digital audio is also enhanced through 24-bit 192kHz Intel HD Audio (High Definition Audio for high-fidelity supporting 8 channels). Customers can select from multiple optical drives, including a double-layer DVD+/-RW multi-format drive that can burn up to 8.5GB of data on double-layer DVD media, as well as a 7-in-1 memory card reader. The PC DAW BWX is offered in several recommended configurations that can be customized with a selection of options starting from $999.00.
