    Phoronix: Airtop3 Manages A Passively-Cooled Core i9 9900K + Quadro RTX 4000

    The folks at CompuLab have achieved another engineering masterpiece with a passively-cooled PC with an Intel Core i9 9900K processor and up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics. Coming out of CompuLab, the PC is also Linux-friendly...

    Our production studios simply run the microphone cables from the very loud giant workstations under the false floor into the recording room next door. Problem solved.

    I would really dig an AMD-based version; even with the current options it might be a really good way to go for my application at work.

    Wonderful looking hardware, but I wouldn't even consider buying it with NVIDIA graphics.

    So many people have worked so hard to give us fully Free Software / Open Source systems. Now that we have that, I don't want to take even a single step back. Hardware which requires proprietary drivers are not an option for me.

    I want my/our next steps to be forward. Open firmware and open hardware (full schematics available and usable by competitors).

    Compulab: if you're going to offer GNU/Linux support, please use an AMD graphics card or, in the future, an Intel graphics card. NVIDIA do not play well with the GNU/Linux culture and way of doing things.

    Oh for an edit button or at least a less buggy mobile UI on this site

    Nice to know becauI will be looking for a passively cooled Zen2 or ice-lake whenever those hit the market.

    Price isn't actually that bad. $2,112 for one with i9 and 1TB ssd and nvme. Probably priced like a similarly loaded laptop would cost.

    they must be sponsored by Intel or Nvidia I guess.. I hate that they're not AMD based

    You don't seem to have a real grasp of the industrial work environments where these kinds of computers are used.

    Agreed, but there are situations (mainly dusty / dirty environments) where you do not want airflow into the chassis. Also places like recording studios where even a noctua fan is too noisy. So there definitely is a market for these products, even if it's not you and me. That said, they do make some *really* nice hardware, world class stuff from this company for sure.
