Dell unveils new workstations
Sep 17, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Dell has unveiled the Dell Precision M4800, M6800, T3610, T5610 and T7610, expanding its workstation portfolio.
According to the company, the new workstations are designed to seamlessly run the leading content creation, engineering, scientific and other professional software applications. Committed to improving the performance and personal experience and interaction with its new Dell Precision M4800 and M6800 mobile workstations, Dell is the first to bring a 15.6-inch Quad HD+ IGZO panel to the workstation market, with higher resolution than the Apple MacBook Pro Retina display, and the only to offer optional 10-finger Wacom multi-touch on a 17.3-inch display for intuitive control and interaction with creative and design applications. Dell is also the first to offer WiGig wireless docking and has improved audio performance with WAVES MaxxAudio Pro integration. The new Dell Precision mobile workstations also deliver the highest performance with up to 16GB of 1866MHz memory, fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processor options up to Core i7 Extreme Edition, and AMD FirePro and NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics, with up to 8GB graphics memory on the M6800 configured with NVIDIA Quadro K5100M, for handling complex 3D work, including rendering and simulation.
Both systems also provide superb reliability with all-day battery life, including a secondary slice battery, new AMD Enduro and NVIDIA Optimus, and industry-leading endpoint security solutions that include comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication and leading-edge malware protection.
Offering an award-winning chassis design and cutting-edge technology, the new Dell Precision tower workstations include next generation workstation-class processors and professional graphics, Windows 8 factory installed, new Intel Cache Acceleration Software, PCIe SSDs and updates to Dell Precision Performance Optimizer. Designed for scientific analysis, professional engineering and complex 3D modeling, the new tower portfolio, adding to the Dell Precision T1700 Small-Form Factor and Mini-Tower, includes the Dell Precision T3610 with advanced single CPU performance, the Dell Precision T5610, a high-power dual-processor workstation in a small footprint, and the Dell Precision T7610, the world's most powerful tower workstation. The T7610 will offer up to 512GB system memory and power up to three high-end graphics cards, including up to two NVIDIA Quadro K6000s cards starting in October, the company said.
Dell Precision Performance Optimizer, or DPPO, the world's first automated workstation performance tool that configures settings based on the software application, will be updated with new profiles for Siemens NX 8.5 and Dassault CATIA and French and German languages starting September 17 via online and factory install on new workstations in October. The Intel Xeon Phi co-processor is a new manycore x86-based computational architecture built for high efficiency and exceptional performance on highly parallel workloads. Offered as a coprocessor on a PCIe card, it works synergistically with Intel Xeon Processors to deliver accelerated performance on Dell Precision T7610 tower and R7610 rack workstations, the company added.
Dell is the first to bring Micron PCIe SSD technology to the workstation market on its tower and rack workstations starting in October. The PCIe SSD is one of the highest performance storage options that merge SSD technology directly with the fast PCIe system communication bus. Dell has deeply collaborated with Intel to bring to market and tune the first workstation enterprise-grade storage acceleration software application, Intel CAS-W, which improves workstation application performance . It is available exclusively on Dell Precision rack and tower workstations starting in November, the company reported.
"From designing the fastest F1 racecars to creating the most complex visual effects in Academy-Award winning films, our workstation customers require the latest cutting-edge technology to run their critical software applications," said Andy Rhodes, executive director, Dell Precision workstations. "Our new workstation portfolio gives creative, design and scientific professionals even more power, speed and reliability to imagine, create and accelerate their workflows."
