  • Intel 6th gen “Next Unit of Computing” hotly anticipated

    Updated 30/11/2015

    We’re eagerly anticipating the arrival of Intel’s new 6th generation NUC, otherwise known as “Next Unit of Computing”.  As one of our best selling products, we were the first company in the world to rack-mount NUC and haven’t looked back, innovating around the platform ever since its launch in 2013.

    The new 6th generation NUC, powered by a Skylake-based chipset dubbed “Skull Canyon” and “Swift Canyon”, promises to be the most powerful family of NUC’s yet, with various product iterations up to Core i7.  Whilst information is limited at this stage, depending on the model, new features are expected to include:

    • 4K display capability, over mini HDMI 1.4a and mini DP 1.2
    • Purpose-built for Windows 10
    • Superfast 11ac wireless (option)
    • 2 SSD for lightning fast data transfer
    • Intel’s much acclaimed Iris Pro graphics

    The small form factor and powerful capabilities of NUC make it particularly well suited to a host of applications including immersive gaming, content creation, digital signage, point-of-sale and kiosk.

    Expected Q1 2016, we hope to get an early look at the new offering soon, enabling us to begin our own innovation process of continuing to rack-mount NUC as a short-depth, 1U product for specialised computing environments like audio-visual and display media.

    If you’d like to know more about NUC get in touch or take a look at our product line-up.

  • New architecture takes to the sky at last

    Updated 27/11/2015

    After a period of well publicised constraint, commonplace when transitioning between architectures, Intel has made progress with availability of Skylake; its latest processor platform.  As such, we’re pleased to announce that we are now shipping a number of our products with the new 6th generation architecture including:

    1U Nano – Workstation Series

    1U PC – Workstation Series

    1U PLUS – Entry Level Series

    2U PC  – Entry Level Series 

    We will soon also be able to offer 6th generation support in our ‘Entry Level’ series once a suitable motherboard becomes available. Unfortunately, the ‘Industrial’ and ‘Performance’ options are based on chipsets that are not due for release yet.

    To learn more about the benefits of choosing Skylake, read our recent blog article.  Alternatively, contact us to speak to one of the team.

  • ISO 9001: An invaluable achievement for G2 Digital

    Updated 24/11/2015

    We are thrilled to announce that we have now officially achieved the ISO9001:2008 standard and are Quality Assurance approved.

    This Certification recognises that we have demonstrated our products and services are consistently meeting both our customers’ and statutory and regulatory requirements.

    Gaining ISO 9001 means that the Quality Management System we have in place enables us to continually monitor and manage the quality of our products across all of our processes. ISO 9001 confirms that there is rigorous testing on quality, and that Remedial Materials Advice (RMA) is given for any faulty returns that we do receive in order to eradicate any potential faults in the future.

    We believe the achievement will allow us to also become an even more customer-focused organisation. Through our new quality management capabilities we will be able to sustain better customer satisfaction and service by providing for our customers’ needs and expectations through the very highest quality possible.

    The process is one of continual improvement, our approaches becoming more effective and our number of errors being reduced to pave the way for a better performance. This is then tracked by ISO 9001’s managers to make sure that we are keeping on top of our quality care and are always using best practice methodology in order to constantly improve.

    The Certificate is audited annually and is renewed every three years so that you, the customer, can be certain that our quality is always at the forefront of our business.  Contact us to learn more about our ISO 9001 certification.
