    Phoronix: OnLogic Karbon 700: Passively-Cooled, Up To 8 Core / 16 Thread Industrial & Rugged PC

    OnLogic (formerly known as Logic Supply until a recent rebranding) announced the Karbon 700 back in August as a durable Linux-friendly computer largely intended for industrial applications but nothing prevents the user from using it as a passively, well-built desktop PC either. OnLogic recently sent over the Karbon 700 and it's been working out very well even with passively cooling an Intel Xeon eight-core / sixteen-thread processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB NVMe storage, and more.

    mmm this would have been interesting with a Ryzen/Pro 3700 but with a Xeon is kinda, Meh!!

      It isn't clear if the Karbon 700 was tested with a discrete GPU or not.
      If no such GPU was installed then the comparison is not very meaningful.

        Well, but:
        the price can quickly approach the $2,000 USD threshold
        Don't get me wrong: for industrial use this rugged machine maybe worth every buck...

          What a expensive looking way to get your industrial processes ... backdoored a bit, ehehe.

            Industrial stuff's "security" is debatable at best. If someone has physical network access you are screwed anyway.

              It doesn't appear to have one, based on both the pics of the HW and this (hint: right-click to view in a separate tab/window):

              That's nonsense. None of these tests involved the GPU. Sure, just showing a GUI means the iGPU will eat a little bit of main memory bandwidth, but it shouldn't be much.

                Whatever, there are numerous REMOTE facilities that need monitoring if not control. And I'm sorry to inform you but companies just wouldn't put full team of alive humans if they can avoid that. Because at the end of day companies are greedy, you can count on it. Also, building entirely separated network to facility 500 miles away could be goddamn expensive and inefficient thing to do. So remote telemetry and control IS here, and I'm dead sure more will come. Yes, it a bit playing with fire for the sake of saving money... but that's how business works.

                  Good choice to go for Intel CPUs!
                  And the super friendly Nvidia CPUs.. way to go mates!!

                    Remote control and management is not a backdoor.

                    VPNs are a thing.
