Dell Beefs Up Precision Workstation Offerings

Dell Beefs Up Precision Workstation Offerings

The T3610 Precision tower desktop ($1,099) is the lowest-priced model of the five new Precision workstations Dell has to offer, with a single Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 v2 with up to six cores and, for graphics, Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro processors. Also offered by Dell are two other towers and two mobile workstation laptops.
 



Dell announced Monday new desktop and mobile workstations, taking direct aim at the high-end professional market willing to pay the price for hardware that can deliver processing power and speed. Think stallion, not workhorse. Three new tower (desktop) workstations and two mobile workstations (laptops) will be available worldwide starting Thursday.

The three tower workstations, Precision T3610, T5610 and T7610, feature high-end processors, graphics, storage, display and other technologies designed for those who work with scientific analysis, professional engineering and complex 3D modeling.

The T3610 ($1,099) has a single Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 v2 with up to six cores and, for graphics, Nvidia Quadro and AMD FirePro.

The T5610 ($2,729) has one or two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors with up to 10 cores, and the T7610 ($3,059) is the elite model with one or two Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors and up to 12 cores. All will feature factory-installed Windows 8 Pro 64-bit operating systems.

Power Mobile

Along with the tower debut, Dell's hardware story for the high end gets particularly interesting with a mobile platform debut of two Precision mobile prancers, the M4800 and the M6800.

These are laptops designed for professionals, including CAD designers, looking for machines that can deliver powerful graphics, and generally as much power as possible. The two models offer the latest AMD FirePro and Nvidia Quadro graphics.

The Dell Precision M4800 ($1,249) is a 15.6-inch workstation with a Dell UltraSharp QHD+ panel with highest resolution (3200x1800), providing exceptional picture quality. The larger, 17-inch Precision M6800 ($1,599) is optimized for handling complex 3D work, including rendering and simulation. Both offer fourth-generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7, up to the Core i7 Extreme Edition.

Productivity at High Pitch

Workstation productivity in many engineering and creative spaces call for solid graphics processing performance. Dell fittingly turned to AMD as one of its partners. David Cummings, senior director and general manager of Professional Graphics at AMD, said the company worked closely with Dell "so users can work on more complex/detailed 3D models and work on larger data sets."

Cummings said both AMD and Dell saw there had been an increasing requirement for OpenCL (Open Computing Language) support when it comes to workstation productivity with industry-leading applications.

Both models are designed to work with WiGig wireless docking, meant for fast transfers, where users wirelessly stream content to a number of devices simultaneously. Also, both systems are capable of all-day battery life, including a secondary slice battery.

The features and extras that have gone into the new tower and mobile models can be interpreted as Dell's move to stay strong in one pocket of the faltering PC marketplace.

That pocket is represented by companies whose skilled workers require workstations for creative, engineering and scientific tasks. They continue to show interest in leveraging best-of-class processors, graphics, storage and display technologies. Dell's new workstation portfolio may provide just that kind of grip.
