Work station PC, described as on Wikipedia


“Workstations offered higher performance than mainstream personal computers, especially with respect to CPU and graphics, memory capacity, and multitasking capability. Workstations were optimized for the visualization and manipulation of different types of complex data such as 3D mechanical design, engineering simulation (e.g., computational fluid dynamics), animation and rendering of images, and mathematical plots. Typically, the form factor is that of a desktop computer, consist of a high resolution display, a keyboard and a mouse at a minimum, but also offer multiple displays, graphics tablets, 3D mice (devices for manipulating 3D objects and navigating scenes), etc. Workstations were the first segment of the computer market to present advanced accessories and collaboration tools.”


So when real power is needed and main stream PC even a high end one don’t cut a work station PC is required. The extra cores and threads that these CPU’s pack is much more beneficial in games then it is with crunching large amount of data fast, like:

  • Video Editing
  • Photo Editing
  • 3D designs
  • All sort of renders
