C1 workstations

Updated: C1 entry-level workstations by XI-MACHINES

Hamburg, March 2019: XI-MACHINES GmbH has updated its C1 entry-level workstation series to a new performance level. The C1 is now equipped with the new Intel Coffee Lake R CPU series. The new platform offers a significant increase in performance with a maximum of 8 cores and 16 threads.

The updated C1 series also features the new Nvidia RTX graphics accelerators. With up to 8GB GDDR6 VRAM and additional ray tracing and tensor cores, Nvidia RTX offers significantly increased real-time and rendering performance.

As usual the interior of the C1 high-performance workstation comes perfectly tidied up. The integrated high-end silent cooling concept, with optimized airflow, ensures the longevity of the installed components for many years under continuous load, while at the same time ensuring whisper-quiet operation. The stylish all-aluminum chassis is identical to the premium X1 series, with an integrated 4-bay SATA backplane for easy installation of storage media. Other features of the C1 workstation: Up to 64GB system memory, Thunderbolt 3 ready (via optional expansion card), fast SSD connectors in M.2 and U.2 format.

All components of the C1 have been carefully selected and validated in extensive shootout tests. Each workstation leaves XI-MACHINES´ own production facility in Hamburg, only after passing a certified 36-hour system stability test.

The new C1 series is available in three pre-configured configurations (basic, advanced and ultra), and can also be configured to meet the customers individual requirements.


Since 2005, Hamburg based company XI-MACHINES GmbH is one of the leading manufacturers of individual high-performance workstations, servers and custom solutions for professional use. The systems are optimized for professional fields such as Media & Creation, AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction), ProAudio, Broadcast and Event.

All systems are developed, manufactured and individually tested in Germany with the perfectionism and high-quality standards typical to XI-MACHINES. Each system is optimized for the corresponding field of application. As a result, XI-MACHINES offers its customers turnkey high-performance solutions that work reliably and quietly even in demanding, 24/7 operation. And thanks to their appealing design, they also look good at their place of work.
