VSPC Qubist Gold, technical features
When we say VSPC Qubist Gold is computer performance, we are not saying that they are the default office and browsing computers. Instead, we're talking about a computer designed for more complex tasks, such as graphic design, industrial design, photography, architecture and video editing. What is best known as a work environment.
So, Qubist Gold comes out with programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Corel Draw, Avid Pro Tools, Autocad or Maxwell, among many others, thanks for equipping the card The NVIDIA Quadro P4000 graphics, combined in this case PNY, has 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM and 5.2 TFLOPS FP32, based on the Pascal build. With these benefits we guarantee working with 4K content without any problems.
Quadro can cost between 3 and 10 times more than GeForce cards with the same GPU. However, there are three important distinguishing features to call for more. First of all, NVIDIA selects the best GPUs of each type to ensure good performance, which is essential if it is going to be running years of high performance. After that, ECC memory is used to avoid errors, and last and foremost, we have cards that are able to perform high-speed floating point (FP64) operations, which are very reliable.
In addition, the cards are made to work better with programs like the one we mentioned, because they get much higher performance than the standard GeForce card. In all of this, it is a sensible choice for a computer that works well. In fact, programs like Avid Pro Tools only recognize Quadro graphics cards.
The PNY Quadro P4000 comes with some great features, such as the Intel Core i9-9900K, 32 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM with RGB, Samsung 860 QVO 1 TB SSD, and 2 TB Seagate Barracuda hard drive. 7200 RPM The motherboard is an ASRock Z390 Extreme4, while the Nox GD850 electric power has 850 W of power and 80PLUS Gold certification.
In the event that we want to introduce some modifications to the computer configuration, we can pass it to the company to install the desired component. For example, if we wanted to install an AMD processor, they would have to convert the CPU and motherboard, which would be passed to them and they would just suggest an alternative for those components.
In total we have three separate VSPC computers: Office, Expert & Games, Qubist Gold under Expert Level.
All of this is placed inside the tower Nox Hummer TGF RGB, consisting of four RGB Rainbow 120mm fans including an RGB lighting with multiple color options that we'll see later in the video. For those four fans (one at the front, two at the top and one at the back) we have to add two more of the 120 mm H-240CL liquid cooling set near the radiator, with a maximum air flow of 88.3 CFM and a very low noise of 25 dBa. These fans are also RGB and synced with the previous ones, so we have six fans. Ideal for high performance and forget about heat issues. Should we not want enlightenment, it can also be turned off.
Inbox and outbox updates
Everything is packed in a large box. When we open it, we find a tower with all the features in it, as well as a mother case that has additional elements, such as graphics card adapters or extra liquid cooling adhesives.
Just open the box with air bags to protect the box from the parts. After that we have a plate area, and the one already below the PC, which has more protective plastic at the bottom.
To open the motherboard case first, we get the most important sheets first. For the first time we have a list of things installed on the computer. The second tells us how to turn on the computer. The third is a sheet where you see all the tests performed on the computer.
Also that the VersusPC computers are assembled by their experts, and they do a comprehensive testing process to make sure everything is working properly. This review is divided into several sections. The first update is on the body level, looking for things like connectors, screws, wiring, etc. Afterwards, it is analyzed that the fans are working properly and the temperatures of the components are measured to see if everything is accurate.
Finally, the computer is tested in a 24-hour test to see if there are any compatibility or performance issues, and it is noteworthy if it passes the tests of programs such as Memtest, 3DMark, PCMark, FurMark or Unigine. After that, they recorded the temperatures they received, as well as the energy consumption of the entire tower.
When we look inside the box, we see other parts that are included, most of which are not on the motherboard. We have the installation manual and the ASRock Z390 Extreme4 software manual, as well as a disk with drivers. We also have two SATA3 cables, besides the two that have already been used by the last two computer installations.
We also have three screws for M.2 units: two storage units, one for a WiFi card in case we want to install it. The motherboard also has two holes in the back to remove the horns from the WiFi card. We also have extra spare screws (for fans, storage units, motherboard, etc.) as well as rubber bumpers, as well as the thermal insulation we've talked about before. Finally, the motherboard features the SLI Bridge, which is sure to be a great help if you want to have two graphics cards to render quickly.
We also get access to other things, such as power outages, or the SSD manual. The company also includes a 16 GB small drive.
As for the graphics card, we have a box that includes five video adapters. The graphics card has four DisplayPort 1.4 ports, so it is necessary to use adapters to connect DVI-D or HDMI. In HDMI we have the connector, while we have four other DisplayPort in the same DVI-D adapters. The reason for adding so many is that in the art part there are almost always more monitors, and for example in the list of films some observers from the last few years use DVI-D connections, and it is better to use the adapter than to drop thousands of euros on new monitors if those are fully functional.
Depending on the computer case, we have complete protection everywhere. We have two plastic panels designed to protect the crystals on each side of the box, in addition to the other crystals; one at the top and one at the front. As soon as the protective plastic is removed, we have a thick and beautiful fist, while the side crystals are protected by two transparent films on each side to prevent scratches.
The box contains hexagonal messages that will stop the entry of fat fluffs, simplifying future cleaning. To remove the front and top glass it is necessary to do it from the inside of the box by combining the elements, while the two side panels come out easily with their wire screws. In addition, the side glass panels divide well inside the box.
In the upper part we find, in addition to a glass with a small area of fans, it is a very complete connection. From left, we have an LED button to move through a bunch of lighting modes. Next to it are two USB ports, a red LED indicator, a reset button, power button, headphone and connector jack connectors, two USB 2.0 ports, and a three-way ventilation switch: speed, standard and immediately.
In the background we have all motherboard connectors, four USB 3.0 ports, one USB 3.1 (one type A and one C type), an Ethernet connector, three video connectors (HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA), antennas output of WiFi when we place the card, five audio jacks and a light effect. The graphics card, as we mentioned before, has four DisplayPort 1.4 effects programmed into one place. Below we have the power supply.
Finally, at the bottom we have space for the pea to breathe through the power outage.
An internal review
When we remove the side panels of the glass (screws can be easily resolved by hand) and the plastic bubble protects the elements, we can see the neatly folded box and the wires are well connected, aided by the fact that the graphics card has the Source connector at the bottom of the side, and NOX fluid cooling.
Auxiliary fans are more flexible because of the box-mounted controller. We have a tab in the front and three levels, where it's very low and quiet. Medi starts to make a little noise, and the top puts the fans up so the air goes out faster. This is especially important if the computer offers 100% of all the components, since we can quickly cool it to a higher level to get the best performance of the components and avoid thermal softening.
With the controller we control four of the six boxers: the back, the upper one, and the one down the front. The other two boxing fans are responsible for cooling the radio. The auxiliary fans above are also responsible for air flow, as they are arranged in different configurations: one by pulling, and the other by connecting.
The graphics card takes one slot, as it is designed to insert multiple cards into tight workplaces. In addition, we can see that it has Quadro Sync connectors between its connectors and its many advantages of eliminating art from image, syncing input signals, reproducing 3D images, etc.
32 GB of RAM stays in all spaces to be up to 8 GB DIMM, and has a lot of RGB light as we'll see later.
When we turn on the computer, we find the cables exactly the computers with flanges, fan control, and two storage areas. The hard drive is placed in its pool, and then the SSD is programmed directly. We have a place to install another hard drive, a lower pool, and on top we can add another one and SSDs to look at.
The computer comes with Windows 10 Home installed, but it doesn't work, so we'll have to buy a separate license. It is also possible to get it directly from the VersusPC website when you buy a computer, so you don't have to worry about running it yourself. In our test case, we chose to install from scratch with Windows 10 Pro to avoid any potential problems and to make sure that we back up the updates.
The liquid cooling fans are set to 100% by default, and operate without any three operating modes that allow us to select the case using the front switch. Therefore, it may be best to download the AI Tweaker from ASRock to adjust the fan curve depending on the temperature they reach. In our case we have set them up to 50% when the temperature is below 50 ° C, and the fans almost have no noise, in addition to keeping it well warm.
At an ambient temperature of 17 ºC, the CPU stands at 31 ºC at rest, reaching 89 ºC at 100% load per wPrime. The graphic card is completely quiet at rest at 31 ° C (fan remains active, even when sound is relaxing), while it goes up to 72 ° C with maximum load.
RGB lighting is one of the best things we've seen on the computer, with the ability to customize the color the way we like. To select a light color we have to press a button on the front, and it will pass us through a variety of options, including one of the closures if we do not want the light.
As we can see in the pictures, we have options including several colors, fixed colors, various RGB modes, etc. In the following video you can see how all the methods work.
On the CPU-Z we can guarantee you computer performance, such as 3200 MHz where RAM is running, 8 GB of VRAM graphics card, or a little faster test that installs the system. In a single-line we get 592.5 points, while in most threads we score 6,120.2 points.
On the GPU-Z we see that we are experiencing quite a Quadro P4000, along with the latest drivers.
CrystalDiskMark and CrystalDiskInfo
For SSD performance testing we get the expected performance of this Samsung 860 QVO 1TB unit, which has a read and write sequence of 555/500 MB / s. In the case of hard disk, performance also rises above the first 230 MB / s of read and write, and falls as fast as we see in the last two sections, as is often the case with hard disks.
In wPrime we can see the performance of the processor when doing mathematical calculations, it becomes a valid test to know the processor's performance. At 32M, the processor only takes 3.4 seconds, while at 1024M it takes 89.9 seconds, a staggering performance figure.
AIDA64 (RAM Memory Test)
In AIDA64 we get good RAM memory performance, has good latency and speeds up to 48,685 MB / s in writing.
The Cinebench R15 also shows this dual graphics and processor card, gaining 2052 cb in processor, and 246.39 fps in graphics test with OpenGL.
The latest version of Cinebench, optimized for AVX instructions for later developers. Here we get 4916 points, a very good figure.
Adobe Premiere Pro 4K rendering
With Adobe Premiere Pro we wanted to do a 4K test of the video we recorded to show the computer light colors, rendering it faster for CUDA. The original video was recorded at 1080p, but when we put it in 4K we had a very high bitrate, and also tested the computer muscle. It only took one minute and 48 seconds to translate the video, this time to less than the video itself lasting (2 minutes and 53 seconds), so the computer is able to render more than one second of video per second. However, when we activate CUDA, the time given is the same as the duration of the video: 2 minutes and 53 seconds.
PCMark mimics standard computer usage, thus giving us a realistic idea of what to expect in everyday use. In total we get a score of 5,862 points, and for each call, the output and output phases are visible, where this computer passes.
Corona is another test that offers a 9900K exit, completing the test in 1 second and 37 seconds.
Here we go completely into graphic tests with Unigine Heaven, allowing us to see the pure graphics performance. We get 170.2 FPS at 1080p with high-resolution settings and without the hassle, which is how testing comes automatically. As we can see, even though the graphics card is not designed to play, the effect of this type of environment is good.
Photo by Tomb Raider
We also wanted to test the game on the graphics card. Although it is not advisable to buy Quadro cards for play, their performance is excellent. If you want the card to play, at its price, it's best to buy a GeForce collection card, because with our money we will get more performance. In this case, in the Tomb Raider Shield we get 68 FPS on average with Ultra image resolution.
3DMark Time Spy
Time Spy also gives us a good overview of graphics performance and processor testing, gaining 5,124 points for the GPU and 11,639 for the CPU.
The last three tests are aimed at the professional sector, where Quadro cards come out thanks to their great performance and reliability when they provide components that use the benefit of the card. The first test is LinuxMark v3.1, which is probably the most widely used OpenCL benchmark. In the test we get 16,021 points.
After that we also performed a test with SPECviewperf 13, a bench that is considered standard for graphics card performance measurement in a professional app. To do this, check out the functionality of 3D graphics under OpenGL and DirectX, which show the behavior that happens in real programs all the time. As we can see from the results, measured in the SPF, there is no evidence to resist it.
It's Soft Sandra
Finally, we also want to do two graphics card-based tests with SiSoft Sandra. The first is cryptography, where we get a performance of 40.51 GB / s. Secondly we have image processing, where it can process 949 MPixel / s.
The choice of the i9-9900K on this computer is not a mistake. Companies want to get the best performance possible with their computers, and in the last two years Intel and AMD bets in the mid-range have allowed to outsource powerful computers to work with. Currently we can get chips like the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X or 9-9900K itself which yields that a few years ago we only got on HEDT or Xeon chips.
So, we have every chance that a computer will work like Qubist Gold using the cheapest features, but it has the best performance offered by Intel chip at this level, in addition to the robustness and features of the technology that Intel operates today, where more than -ASRock Z390 Extreme4 can add Thunderbolt connection thanks to a 5 pin connector.
Also, the advanced part is very different from the one, where the user can have time to integrate the computer as he pleases and select the elements. In the field of technology, time is money, and being able to find a computer that works equally well that will allow you to earn money in a minute of zero is something to keep in mind. And more so when the computer is just as important as collecting the pieces.
The functionality it offers is perfect for 3D rendering programs and for editing multimedia content such as images or video. In short, a well-functioning computer that can handle high performance tasks, as well as great airflow and good aesthetics. For all of this, you get our platinum medal and our commendation for its performance and design.
