The Entroware Hades Workstation

Meet the Entroware Hades

British Linux computer company Entroware has unveiled its latest Linux-powered offering — and it’s something of a beast!

The Entroware Hades is the company’s first workstation PC to offer AMD processors and multi-GPU configurations.

The base model comes equipped with an octa-core AMD Ryzen 1900X, Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 (2GB) and 16GB RAM and a 120GB SSD.

All options are configurable, too.

The CPU tops out at a 32-core 4.2GHz Ryzen TR 2990X, memory goes up to DDR4 128GB, and when it comes to graphics you can have total of 4x Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (11GB).

Very nice!

Ports wise the machine has everything one might need, including a slew of various USB ports (including USB Type-C), ethernet, full compliment of audio jacks, microphone input, and HDMI out.

Operating system choices are Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 18.10, Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS, and Ubuntu MATE 18.10.

As you’d expect for a machine of its calibre, the Entroware Hades isn’t cheap.

Prices for the workstation begin at £1,599 for the base model, with component upgrades costing extra. The price is competitive with similar spec’d machines available to buy elsewhere (loaded with Windows 10).

But before you baulk at the price do keep in mind that the Entroware Hades is not a mom ‘n’ pop PC. It’s not targeted at regular desktop users who want a machine to GIMP their selfies or chat on Discord.

No, the Hades is a beast of a machine built to handle intensive business, animation, AI, and scientific applications.

— And with a maximum of 128GB RAM on offer It should just about cope with GNOME Shell animations too. 😉
