Sterling Heights-based Rave Computer Thursday unveiled Rave Ignition, a full line of high-performance engineering workstations that are available in standard, premium, and elite configurations.

The new systems are designed specifically for engineering professionals operating compute-intensive three-dimensional computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering applications such as designers, scientists, geophysicists, and media professionals.

The ultra quiet Rave Ignition series features the latest Intel technologies and industry leading graphics options from Nvidia and ATI. The systems all incorporate an 85 percent efficient power supply, assisting in reduced power consumption while maintaining performance. The custom thermally controlled cooling systems ensure the best possible airflow helping to preserve component life.

“Rave has designed, integrated, and supported high performance workstations for over 20 years,” said Rick Darter, CEO and president of Rave Computer. “The Ignition series workstation is simply Rave putting our name on what we do best, building customized computers. We understand what’s important to engineering professionals and we’re delivering workstation solutions that offer maximum performance, flexibility, and reliability.”
