The phenomenal effect of this processing power enables the compact Prime-16 to deliver true laboratory-level computational power, equipping high end power-users who have a distinct need for portability and on-demand desktop-grade CPU performance with the ultimate mobile solution. So whether you're burning the midnight oil putting the finishing touches on your robots mechanical design or processing a computationally intensive dataset of fluid dynamics, the Prime-16's incredibly robust i9 processing engine gets you to the finish line faster and with far greater efficiency.
Intel i9-12900H Engine.
Brimming at the processing core of the wonderfully compact Prime-16 lies Intel's incredible 12th generation i9-12900H 14-Core computational giant.
20 Threads Of Immense Power.
Embedded at the Prime-16's processing nucleus are an immense 20 separate processing threads that operate at incredibly stable clock frequencies to deliver repeatable high-end performance.
Incredible GPU Compute Power.
The compact Prime-16's graphical power plant has been built on NVIDIA's esteemed top-end RTX 3060 engine. Through an extensive development process, the compact Prime-16's RTX engine has been optimised in-house to deliver a sustained 115 Watt's of repeatable TDP power. This has been achieved by leveraging the Prime-16's cutting-edge cooling technology and in turn delivers extraordinary rendering power that belies it's wonderfully compact form. Fused into the Prime-16's hi-tech graphics routing circuitry is a unique hardware level dGPU (Dedicated Graphics Processor) graphics switch, that enables power-users through a simple click of a built-in software button, to actively choose between Hybrid graphics (Optimsed for Battery) or Dedicated graphics (Optimised for GPU Compute Power). In turn when the Dedicated graphics switch is enabled, GPU compute performance is boosted by up to a groundbreaking 15% compared against traditional and most commonly found Hybrid graphics processors. Together, these technologies enable the compact Prime-16 to deliver a level of graphical power well beyond its peers.
115W High Wattage Graphics Engine.
Tuned In-House, the Prime-16's NVIDIA graphics engine has been specially optimised to deliver a sustained 115 Watts of TDP Power, achieved by leveraging the Prime-16's cutting-edge cooling technology, in turn delivering extraordinary rendering power that belies it's wonderfully compact form.
Dedicated dGPU Technology (MUXed).
The Prime-16 uniquely integrates a hardware-level graphics switch, referred to in the industry as a MUX switch, which when activated enables the Prime-16 to dedicate (dGPU Technology) all graphics commands through the NVIDIA graphics engine rather than routing graphics commands through the built-in Intel graphics engine before reaching the display output. In short this means that the Prime-16 has a direct link from the NVIDIA graphics engine to the display, reducing transmission latency and resulting in an incredible increase in graphical rendering performance, with up to a 15% increase in FPS (Frames Per Second) when compared against the traditional non-dedicated graphics system (Hybrid Graphics Technology).
Hybrid Graphics Technology (Muxless)
In a Hybrid Graphics layout, which is the standard in laptops today, the NVIDIA graphics commands go through the Intel graphics engine before outputting to the display. As a result, this inherently comes with a degree of latency.
Dedicated dGPU Technology (MUXed)
The Prime-16 uniquely integrates a hardware-level graphics switch, referred to in the industry as a MUX switch, which when activated enables the Prime-16 to dedicate (dGPU Technology) all graphics commands to the NVIDIA graphics engine alone. Boosting FPS (Frames Per Second) by up to an astonishing 15%.
Compact Form, Sleek Design.
Each design element on the Prime-16 has been engineered meticulously with the purpose of maximising mobility, to such an extent that the Prime-16's combined weight tips the scales at a mere 2.15 kilo's. Flanked by ultra thin display bezels, its expansive 16.0 inch display is encased wonderfully by a sleek profile that enables an exceptionally compact set of dimensions. With the width of the sleek Prime-16 measuring a narrow 35.9 centimetres wide, with a short depth of only 26.3 centimetres and a robust yet thin height of 2.43 centimetres. Meanwhile, the Prime-16's construction has been designed with purity in mind, with a beautiful, elegant and understated slate concept that is instantly familiar, blending seamlessly into a high-end corporate boardroom or home office. Finished in a contemporary dark space-grey-walnut colour that has a subtle hint of metallic sheen, with the top cover (A-Cover) of the Prime-16 reinforced by a solid Aluminium Alloy case.
