AMD-Powered Workstation


Rain Recording has announced Solstice, their first AMD (NYSE: AMD) processor-based audio workstation. Solstice workstations are a new addition to Rain's line of computers built specifically for the demanding needs of professional audio and video production.
Powered by innovative AMD AthlonT 64 X2 dual-core processors, Rain tell us that the new Solstice 01 and 02 workstations can support the most demanding applications without the potential bottleneck of a traditional front side bus. They say that, with more efficient and fast communication including memory and video sub-systems, DAW software audio engine computations and file streaming have a wide road to travel on - not to mention high speeds. This means added performance while using less processor power and generating less heat - the hallmarks of Rain Recording's philosophy of component balancing and "Quiet Cool" performance.
Bill Paschick, Rain Recording US President told us, "The Rain alliance with AMD is an extremely powerful convergence of design philosophies. The outcome of which is sure to drive the creativity and confidence of our customers even further. Incorporating these new AMD processors into the Solstice line has allowed us to attain equilibrium between power and affordability like never before."
Ron Myers, AMD Validated Solutions, Senior Manager had this to say, "Rain's commitment to balance and stability mirrors our own philosophy. The AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor line is in good hands at Rain and we're excited to be at the core of their new Solstice Digital Audio Workstation."
