MediaWorkstations is selling a briefcase-shaped workstation PC for those of you who have dreamed of hauling the power of AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper processors into Starbucks. The a-XP, as it’s called, starts at $7,997 and weighs 30 to 45 pounds, which doesn’t seem too bad for the power it’s packing. It also seems to be quite airport-friendly, as it can be turned into a piece of luggage.

“Featuring an AMD Threadripper CPU up to 64 cores, 256GB RAM, up to two discrete GPUs and space for two additional single slot PCIe cards, the a-XP Portable AMD Threadripper Workstation PC is the mobile version of our a-X, a cost effective and powerful portable workstation ready to go wherever you need to,” wrote MediaWorkstations.

The a-XP can be fitted with a 24-Core, 48-Thread Threadripper 3960X, 32-Core, 64-Thread Ryzen Threadripper 3970X, or 64-Core, 128-Thread Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. There’s also plenty of potential graphics cards options, ranging from the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER to TITAN RTX with 24 GB of GDDR6.

MediaWorkstations kept the motherboard a mystery on the product page, but Tom’s Hardware believes that the a-XP utilizes ASRock’s TRX40 Creator, a clean-looking board with an eight-layer, server-grade PCB comprising two-ounce copper inner layers.

Of course, what we’re really wondering is whether it can do this…
