Workstations are computing systems that typically offer better performance than desktop computers, making them useful in compute-intensive areas such as engineering and mechanical design. While the term workstations isn't used as frequently as it once was when systems from the likes of SGI, DEC, Sun Microsystems and PowerPC were in vogue, hardware manufacturers like HP and Dell continue to market and sell workstations for high-end use.
From traditional workstations to the latest in ultra-high performance workstations, our workstations dictionary offers a glossary of key terms you need to know.
