Those two models come with Dual Intel Xeon Gold 6148 and Intel 9th generation i9 processor. The Intel Xeon Gold 6148 processor has about 40-cores which able to perform a complex task. At the same time, it allows multitasking to an extreme level.
Both of the desktop is using the NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPU. Other than that, the storage can be upgraded up to 60TB and having all these high-end specifications, the fan noise is reduced to lesser than 40dB. This means very hardly you can hear the fan noise inside.
