Rave Computer to launch high-performance Nvidia workstation

STERLING HEIGHTS—Rave Computer, a manufacturer of purpose-built computing equipment, announced it will debut the new RenderBeast X2 workstation, purpose-built to run Nvidia Omniverse workloads, the latest in its series of GPU-intensive computers, at Nvidia GTC, running March 18-21 in San Jose, Calif.

Designed to meet the demands of today’s immersive computing landscape, the RenderBeast X2 uses dual Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs and an AMD Ryzen liquid-cooled CPU. It’s specially created for complex rendering tasks, including demanding immersive, XR, and AI scenarios, and large design and engineering workloads.

“Our single-GPU RenderBeast has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our customers,” shared Matt Moy, senior systems engineer for Rave Computer. “As the Nvidia Omniverse development platform sets new standards with ray tracing in XR and multi-GPU support, RAVE aimed to maintain the compact size, quiet operation, and superior performance of the original RenderBeast in multi-GPU configurations. The performance data we’ll share at GTC demonstrates that we’ve achieved an exceptionally efficient and balanced configuration, pushing the boundaries in both raw performance and cost-effectiveness.”

Rave will feature the RenderBeast X2 in Booth 1641 for live demos in the XR pavilion of the Nvidia GTC exhibit hall, and Moy will discuss features of the RenderBeast X2 on the XR stage on Tuesday, March 19 at 12:30 p.m. Pacific time. Both Rave’s demo and stage presentation feature how to implement real-time ray tracing in mixed reality, with the RenderBeast X2 powering OpenUSD and Nvidia RTX-based scenes from Nvidia Omniverse, maximized by Varjo’s latest XR-4 Series headset for a true photorealistic immersive experience. Moy’s in-person session will also provide practical advice and strategies for initiating XR projects using Omniverse and the Varjo XR-4 headset powered by the RenderBeast X2.

Rave’s RenderBeast lineup of GPU-intensive computers is designed to be customized and adapted to customer specifications. Boasting compact form factors and whisper-quiet performance, they have been rigorously tuned to support power draw, acoustic output, and thermal performance targets to ensure customers have a balanced system that can run in boost mode for extended periods. This balanced approach delivers highly efficient workflows, allowing maximum compute power that delivers professional AR/VR/XR experiences.

Rave is an Elite Solution Provider in the Nvidia Partner Network and participates on the Nvidia Federal Advisory Council. “Rave’s RenderBeast line of computers harness the powerful performance of Nvidia RTX GPUs to help meet the demands of today’s immersive computing landscape,” said Kevin Berce, sernior director of public sector software at Nvidia.

RAVE is also Varjo’s only Elite Reseller partner in North America. “Our partnership with RAVE, grounded in our shared commitment to innovation, has significantly advanced the industrial use of VR and XR technologies, especially in the automotive, manufacturing, and defense sectors.
