Wacom introduces Cintiq Pro Engine module to turn your tablet into a PC

New, 27 comments

Wacom announced the Cintiq Pro 24- and 32-inch displays last summer, and now the company is introducing a new PC module that integrates into the back of the display to turn it into a Windows 10 workstation. The Cintiq Pro Engine memory and SSD are exchangeable as well as upgradable, so you can swap it out and move your work between the Cintiq 24-inch and 32-inch displays.

Wacom is releasing two versions of the Pro Engine which are both powered by the NVIDIA Quadro P3200 graphics card; one with an Intel i5HQ processor, 16GB RAM and 256GB storage for $2,499, and a version with the Intel XEON processor with 32GB RAM and 512GB storage for $3,299. They’ll be available this coming May.

The Cintiq Pro Engine also offers virtual reality support, so it can power an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive VR headset. Though most Wacom products have already been able to support VR content creation, the Pro Engine lets artists review the VR content they’ve created without having to test it out on a separate PC.
