This machine was configured with very large multidimensional data-sets in mind, that require interactive image processing.

Accordingly this desktop computer was configured with a focus on fast I/O and good visualization capabilities. The hard disk and the RAM are among the fastest we could get in 2017. The big, bright monitor with color fastness (100% sRGB) backed up with a high performance graphics card matches video and photo editing standards.
