Product Details

The 10th Generation is Here!

Intel just released the 10th-generation line of CPUs, and we're offering the new flagship i9-10900 CPU. Performance is at similar speeds as the i9-9900K found in our DPC1 (which run at 4.9GHz across all cores), but while the 9th-generation CPUs had an 8-core/16-thread count, the new i9-10900K features 10 cores and 20 threads for even more high-end processing power with apps that can take advantage of more cores (not all audio apps do a great job of that, but if you're doing audio for video work, you'll easily benefit).

The other big difference here is the case: this gorgeous, premium case is a little bit larger than our DPC1, or just an inch or two larger on each side than the classic Apple Mac Pro 2009-2012, but this can accommodate a pair of 2.5" SSD drives plus an additional 6-10 2.5"/3.5" hard drives or SSDs (vs. 2 SSD plus 3 HD/SDD in the DPC1).

NOTE: You can custom-configure this case with an 9th-generation i9/9900K to save some money, but note that the new 10th-generation Intel CPUs require a new motherboard design. Systems purchased with the 9th-generation CPU can't simply swap it out for the 10th-generation without also replacing the motherboard.

Just like the DPC1, the new DPC2 is ready for tracking and mixing right out of the box. Various options will let you expand from here should you want to start with even more memory, storage, or more powerful graphics capabilities (suggested if you regularly edit 4k video or larger). However, please note that our default configuration already includes plenty of storage to get you going. Check out the standard DPC2 specs:

  • Intel 10th-generation Core i9 10900k CPU, 10-core, 4.9GHz *
  • 32GB Ballistix DDR4 3200ns RAM
  • 1TB m.2 NVMe solid-state storage for the OS, applications/installs, etc.
  • 1TB SSD for data: sample libraries, music sessions, etc.
  • 4TB WD Black 7200 RPM HD for data: sessions/tracking and/or backups
  • GeForce RTX 2060 with 6GB VRAM
  • Premium Logitech RGB keyboard and wireless mouse
  • Windows 10 Home Edition

* The i9-10900K CPUs are back-ordered as of June 20, 2020, so we have not confirmed how far we can reliably overclock them. Thus the actual speed is subject to change in the next few weeks.
