Digital Audio Wave Launches DAWin G5000 PC Digital Audio Workstation
Posted Aug 20, 2004

The ultra-quiet (18dB) DAWin G5000 digital audio workstation is a desktop system with Intel Pentium 4 Processor supporting HT Technology Extreme Edition 3.4 GHz, two 74GB Western Digital 10000RPM Raptor SATA drives powered by Intel(R) Matrix RAID Technology, and NVDIA PCI Express X16 graphics card.

G5000 features:
-PCI Express bus architecture delivers over 3.5 times more bandwidth for graphics cards than AGP8X, supporting the latest high performance graphics cards. It also offers over 3.5 times more bandwidth than PCI for I/O cards, for top-notch performance with Gigabit Ethernet devices.
-Intel Matrix Storage Technology enables increased storage performance on dual hard drives via Native Command Queuing and RAID 0 stripping, while helping to protect your valuable digital archives through RAID 1 mirroring. Native hot plug capability lets you swap hard drives while your PC is running.
-Dual-Channel DDR2 533 memory delivers up to 8.5GB/s bandwidth for incredibly responsive realistic high-definition audio, high-definition video, faster 3D modeling, and better system performance.
-DAWin G5000 features deliver a compelling solution for both consumer and corporate market segments.
-800-MHz FSB (Front Side Bus) enables support for today's highest- performing Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology Extreme Edition 3.4 GHz
-Optimized for Intel Pentium 4 Processor supporting HT Technology to enable improved system performance and responsiveness.
-Enhanced performance architecture, with 800-MHz system bus processors and DDR2 memory, optimizes data transfers between the processor and system memory
-Flexible memory support, with dual-channel DDR2 533 / DDR2 400 memory, providing up to 8.5GB/s memory bandwidth, in configurations up to a maximum of 4GB of Random Access Memory (RAM).
-PCI Express delivers up to 4GB/s per direction for graphics bandwidth and up to 500MB/ s concurrent data transfers for I/O. -Intel Matrix Storage Technology, with integrated Raid 0 and Raid 1 capabilities using the latest SATA interface, for accelerated disk I/O performance. Serial ATA hard drives deliver enterprise-class specifications with 10,000 RPM. The newest generation Western Digital Raptor SATA drives offer the digital audio market 74 GB capacity, and Rotary Acceleration Feed Forward (RAFF) technology to maintain hard drive performance in high-vibration environments. These new class of hard drives match SCSI reliability and exceed comparable SCSI performance in audio-video workloads while providing simplified connectivity for less cost than SCSI drives. Serial ATA incorporates significant technical enhancements over traditional ATA making it ideal for RAID implementations. Along with several configuration benefits, SATA technology improves data transmission through a point-to-point topology, eliminating bus sharing and delivering a full 1.5Gb/s bandwidth to each drive. -Intel High Definition Audio features eight independent DMA audio engines (192 KHz at 24-bit converters) can enable multiple separate, simultaneous audio streams with support for major audio formats, such as Dolby Digital and 7.1 surround sound.
