ASUS PA90 Mini Overview

The ASUS ProArt PA90 Mini Workstation is a compact workstation designed for creative professionals dealing with computer-aided design (CAD) and content creation. Specs-wise, it's equipped with a 9th Generation 3.6 GHz Intel Core i9 8-Core processor, 32GB of DDR4 RAM, a 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD paired with a 1TB 7200 rpm HDD, and an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 graphics card. With these combined, this system provides you with quick and efficient performance. Users can also connect up to four displays for multitasking. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.

NVIDIA Quadro Graphics

The NVIDIA Quadro P4000 provides the performance for a variety of graphical tasks including photo and video editing, computer-aided design (CAD) workflows for architecture, engineering and manufacturing, as well as media and entertainment. It's also VR-ready, so users can work in 3D space and create immersive virtual environments.

Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Certification

The ISV certification ensures that this system is reliable and compatible with a variety of software including the Adobe and Autodesk suite, and more.

Liquid Cooling

A compact chassis leaves little room for cooling. Therefore, this system is equipped with liquid cooling for optimal performance. It operates at 25.5 dB at idle and 32 dB at full load. Moreover, the top of this system opens up for increased airflow when needed.

Thunderbolt 3

Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.

Windows 10 Home

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.

Cortana

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.

If this is geared towards professional content creators such as myself, why does it ship with Windows 10 Home and not Pro?
