Introducing the Shift Pro

Designed for the Creative Professional

From 3D modeling to post-production, the Shift Pro is a versatile workstation design. Its high level of customization allows for infinite configuration possibilities that will deliver performance where you need it the most. From high end NVIDIA Quadro professional or AMD FirePro™ graphics to high-bandwidth, redundant storage, the Shift Pro is a robust and reliable solution.

Bold is Beautiful

The Shift Pro's award-winning design keeps strength and style in mind. That means a sublime blend of a server-grade steel frame for strength, and a beautiful brushed aluminum exterior to reduce weight and increase heat dissipation. With its unique layout, the Shift Pro is aesthetically beautiful from every angle.

Natural Cooling Design

Winner of the CES Design and Innovations award, MAINGEAR's Shift Pro features VRTX (Vertical Exhaust) Cooling Technology, turning the motherboard 90 degrees in order to dissipate GPU heat from the top while pulling in cool air from the bottom, promoting cooler temperatures and improved performance potential. The Shift Pro keeps your system cool by allowing hot air to dissipate out of the top of the chassis, while drawing in cold air from the bottom, creating a cooling cycle of airflow.

No-Fuss Liquid Cooling

MAINGEAR's exclusive EPIC 180 liquid cooler provides extreme processor cooling; maintaining low temperatures during intensive activities, reducing fan workload and noise, as well as boosting overclocking and performance capabilities.

Extreme Processors

Featuring support for up to dual Intel® V3 Xeon processors with Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology. With up to 72 threads of raw processing, the Shift Pro will easily hand even the most CPU intensive tasks with ease.

Customized for YOUR work-flow

The Shift Pro can be configured for a wide range of software solution including:

The Best in Professional Graphics

With support for multiple NVIDIA Quadro, AMD FirePro™, GeForce, and Tesla cards, the SHIFT will allow you to fully harness the power of GPU computing. Today's GPUs are powerhouses and contain hundreds of individual stream processors for massive parallel computing and everything from video transcoding, encoding, and editing get a speed boost from stream processing.

Upgrade your workflow

The Shift Pro includes room to accommodate up to three GPUs, and has easy-to-install pre-wired hot-swap hard drive bays. Here at MAINGEAR, we continually improve and build upon the Shift Pro based on your needs thanks to its easily upgradable design.

Intelligent Airflow Control

MAINGEAR's Intuitive Airflow Control technology delivers an unprecedented level of PWM (Pulse-width Modulation) control by pairing with the motherboard's BIOS for enhanced efficiency and quieter operation. The fans’ speed is directly adjusted by the system temperature, dynamically adapting to the system performance level and heat generation, reducing unnecessary noise in the process.

Turbo Storage and Premium Memory

The MAINGEAR Shift offers incredibly fast storage options with six hard drive bays supporting up to 6x 2TB Samsung® 850 Pro SSDs with 550MB/s Read speeds, as well as Intel blazing fast 750 series NVME drives. Additionally, memory options allow for up to 256GB of premium Kingston® ECC DDR4-3000 memory.
