315 new HP Z240 computers have been installed into the following CAEN Labs for start of the Fall 2016 term:

  • Beyster 1620
  • Beyster 1695
  • EECS 1230
  • EECS 4440
  • GFL 224
  • GGBL 2570

These computers have the following specifications:

  • Small Form Factor (SFF) design

  • RAM: 16 GB DDR4-2133 nECC
  • Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K620 2 GB
  • Disk: 1 TB SSD

In addition, CAEN has deployed limited numbers of Samsung 34” curved LED monitors (model S34E790C) on the new computers installed in GGBL 2570 and EECS 1230.

These monitors offer more screen real estate with a resolution of 3440×1440 (QHD). You are encouraged to try these new monitors and give CAEN feedback on them. If these larger monitors prove useful to students, CAEN will increase the numbers of these units and expand them into other CAEN student computer labs.

For lab changes, the CAEN Lab in GFL 224 is nearing the end of an extensive renovation. It is expected to open later in September. It will be remodeled as a reservable instructional classroom / computer lab. The room will be equipped with 11 desktop computers and 11 55” 4K displays lining the room. When not reserved, the lab will open for general walk-in and collaborative (group) work.
