Fifteen of Inmars top IT talent competed last week during the companys annual IT Killer Rig competition. With their peers and Leadership team members looking on, the competitors machines were put through rigorous tests against industry and company benchmarks. In the end, winners with the best-performing systems were crowned in three categories.

Every year, a group of Inmar engineers seeks to prove that they can, for the same price, build a better system than the commercially available PCs or laptops typically issued. Taking them up on the challenge, Inmar gives competition participants a budget of $1,000 and some ground rules, such as no kits or overclocking, and the systems must use Inmar licensed software and comply with all Inmar policies. They have two weeks to build their system on their own time and retain the system, with its killer speed, as their Inmar system, after the contest.

The speed of an engineers system directly impacts his or her productivity and efficiency, says Inmar Chairman and CEO David Mounts. If they tell us they arent satisfied with their system and that they can build a faster one, we say great! Go do it! It is a fun, highly completive event and they impress us every year.

Winners of the 2014 Inmar Killer Rig Competition:

  •     The da Vinci Award (best overall) and Roadrunner #1 Award (best performance against industry benchmarks) went to Steve Chipman, software engineer. Steve used his $1,000 to build a machine that boasted an Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4 GHz (4 core) CPU, 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 MHz memory and a Samsung 840 EVO 128 GB SSD.
  •     The Roadrunner #2 Award (best performance against Inmar benchmarks) went to software engineer, Matthew Lingelbach. With his $1,000 budget, Matthew built a machine with an Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz (4 core) CPU, 32 GB (4 x 8 GB) of G Skill Ripjaws Z 1600 MHz memory and a Crucial M500 240 GB SSD.
Both are enjoying the fruits of their labor this week as they put their Killer Rigs to work.
