May 28, 2019
Now featuring the latest processors, next-gen graphics, new display options and longer battery life, Dell’s new mobile workstations give customers the freedom to create wherever they are, the company reports. Designed for creators needing performance and reliability, these systems are fully equipped to take on data- and graphics-intensive workloads.
Dell Technologies also announces updates to its Precision 3000 series towers and the Precision 1U rack workstation, all offering performance and affordability within a small form factor.
Applications will run smoothly whatever the workload, as all Dell Precision workstations are Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certified and also equipped with Dell Precision Optimizer software, a solution that automatically tailors the system’s settings to maximize software performance from the workstation, according to Dell.
“The Precision workstation portfolio is all about creating and working without limits. Today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before, and our customers have come to rely on Dell workstations to deliver the highest performance for their critical workflows, no matter where they are working that day,” said Tom Tobul, vice president and general manager of Dell Commercial Specialty Products. “Incorporating the latest components and intelligent features like Dell Precision Optimizer, our new workstations are designed with power users in mind and allow for innovation and creativity to flourish.”
The new 5000 and 7000 series mobile workstations feature a compact design for mobility. The combination of battery life, processor configurations and large storage options mean that users can stay connected and deliver their projects wherever they are.
Starting at 3.9 lbs, Dell’s thinnest and lightest 15-in. mobile workstation, the Dell Precision 5540 features up to Intel Xeon E or 9th Gen Intel Core 8-core processors. Professional-grade graphics are powered with up to an NVIDIA Quadro T2000 (4GB).
Embodying a sleek design that fits a 15.6-in. InfinityEdge display into a 14-in. chassis, the Precision 5540 is thin on the outside, but up to 4TB of storage and up to 64GB of memory means you can access, transfer and store large 3D, video and multimedia files quickly and easily. Designers focused on the finer details also will benefit from contrast ratios, touch capability and picture quality with up to an UHD, 100% Adobe color gamut display or the new OLED display with 100% DCI-P3 color gamut.
Its sibling, the Dell Precision 7540 mobile workstation, is Dell’s 15-in. mobile workstation and comes with a range of 15.6-in. display options, including a UHD HDR 400 display. It supports up to 8K resolution and playback of HDR content via single Display Port 1.4.
Despite its compact form, the device is Dell’s smallest Ready for Virtual Reality (VR) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) mobile workstation. For users with data and content to process, the Precision 7540 can accelerate heavy workflows with up to 3200MHz SuperSpeed memory or capacity—up to 128GB of 2666MHz ECC memory.
For customers whose process requires an even more immersive experience, the new Dell Precision 7740 with its 17.3-inch screen is Dell’s most powerful and scalable mobile workstation made with premium materials and professional components, and available with the choice of a Titan Gray aluminum or carbon fiber cover. VR and AI-ready it is designed to help users bring their most data-heavy, graphic-intensive ideas to life from complex CAD designs.
The Precision 7740 has been updated to feature up to the latest Intel Xeon E or 9th Gen Intel Core 8-core processors. The 7740 comes with up to 128GB of ECC memory, and a large PCIe SSD storage capacity (up to 8TB). The latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX graphics deliver real-time ray tracing with AI-based graphics acceleration. Additional options include next-generation AMD Radeon Pro. It is available with a range of display options including a new 17.3-in. UltraSharp UHD IGZO display featuring 100% Adobe color gamut.
Dell Precision rack solutions offer secure, remote access for applications and help keep intellectual property in the data center. Space-constrained offices can benefit from moving the workstation to the datacenter, and the Dell Precision 3930 rack workstation is a solution for customers running complex application environments such as interactive design and large data set analysis workloads. The 1U rack workstation offers scalability in a compact form factor and has been updated with Intel Xeon E or 9th Gen Intel Core processor options. The solution now offers up to 128GB of memory and up to one double-width 295W of NVIDIA Quadro or AMD Radeon Pro professional graphics support.
The next-generation Dell Precision 3630 and 3431 tower workstations maximize workspaces. These towers will accelerate workflows and improve response time with up to 128GB or 64GB of 2666Mhz ECC or non-ECC memory respectively, and both offer scalable storage options, the company reports. The Precision 3630 offers up to delivers up to 16GB video memory with Quadro P5000 graphics. Users also have the option of graphics support with the AMD Radeon Pro WX7100.
