The Scan 3XS GW-HTX35 is a monster of a system in every respect. The dual Xeon E5-2687W v3 processors provide a massive amount of rendering power, far ahead of anything KitGuru has tested in the past. Thanks to the NVIDIA Quadro M6000 graphics, the story of success continues onto modelling.
There are a few areas where a faster-clocked Intel Core i7 system might provide a slight edge, such as Maxon Cinema 4D or Autodesk 3ds Max 2015. But with every other software we tested the Scan’s CPU and graphics combination makes it the fastest option around, and in some cases by an enormous margin.
The only significant downside with this system is the price. You are paying more than £9,000 inc VAT for this huge specification. We also would have liked to have seen a M.2 x4 SSD instead of a SATA device for main storage. But this is the only quibble with the component selection.
Overall, although you are paying a fortune, at least you can do so in the knowledge that you’re getting what you paid for – the fastest 3D workstation we have ever tested.
