Silverdraft SD-DEM-SP-8WX-2 Overview

  • 1Description

Designed for motion graphics, visual effects, and compositing software, the Demon SP Workstation from Silverdesk is optimized to work with Cinema 4D, Autodesk VRED, Maya, Flame, 3Ds Max, Solidworks, Adobe After Effects, Premiere, Photoshop, and DaVinci Resolve. This model is aimed towards professional designers and adds a third graphics card and increases the CPU to 18 cores with 88 PCIe lanes. All of this helps to deliver performance and temperature control, while also decreasing render times and increasing frame rates for a fast, efficient, and fluid work flow. The system is powered by a liquid-cooled 2.6 GHz Intel Core i9-7980XE processor, which has 18 cores and 24.75MB of L3 cache. This processor, cores, and cache will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously and provide significant performance gains when running multi-threaded tasks. If you need more power, the CPU can deliver extra performance by increasing the clock speed up to 4.2 GHz utilizing Intel's Turbo Boost technology.

The 128GB of 3600 MHz DDR4 RAM allows the computer to run multiple applications simultaneously and also to quickly access frequently used files and programs. For long-term storage of your files, a 1TB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD allows quick access to your data. The Demon SP's internal storage can also be expanded using one additional M.2 slot, two U.2 ports, and eight 3.5"/2.5" SATA drive bays.

The three liquid-cooled NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards each feature 11GB of GDDR5X RAM and deliver a sharp, clear picture while allowing multiple simultaneous displays to be used via each card's three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.0b outputs at resolutions up to 7680 x 4320 @ 60 Hz. If you need more graphics processing power, an additional 1080 Ti card can be added, for a system total of four. Connect compatible wired peripherals to your Demon SP using one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port, ten USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, and four USB 2.0 Type-A ports. Network connectivity is achieved using dual Gigabit Ethernet ports and audio can be output using the S/PDIF output or eight 3.5mm audio I/O jacks.

Silverdraft's Demon SP Workstation includes a keyboard, mouse, and power cord. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
