Dell Offers SATA3 SSD Storage in Mobile Workstations

Round Rock, Texas - Dell has released for artists, engineers, architects, and people who need serious mobile computing power the Dell Precision M6600 and M4600 mobile workstations, available with 512GB (SATA3) Mobility solid-state drives. The M6600 is also offering the Nvidia Quadro 5010M mobile professional graphics processing unit (GPU) with 4GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory.
Media & entertainment and other creative customers have consistently asked for a means to manipulate and render massive amounts of data faster, says a spokesperson. These customers regularly work with video content, and faster hard drives and enhanced graphics allows them to make faster edits, achieve faster playback speeds, and simultaneous video streams.

To help businesses address these issues, the Dell Precision M6600 and M4600 mobile workstations offer 512GB SATA3 Mobility SSDs, giving users quick 500MB/s read and 300MB/s write times. With the M6600 offering two full storage slots with up to two 512GB SSDs and one mini-card slot with up to 128GB, workstation users can experience more than a terabyte of solid-state storage in a mobile workstation.

With lightning fast read/write times, engineers, artists, architects, and other professionals can boot their systems and launch their professional software applications much faster. For instances where disc I/O is critical, they can greatly reduce the time it takes to access their data, enabling them to substantially increase their project workload in the same amount of time, or simply reduce the time it takes to accomplish a single project--while having the freedom to work wherever the job takes them.

SSDs, with no moving parts, have the highest durability with up to 15 times more shock, vibe, dust, and other impact resistance than standard hard drives. SSDs, as well as shock-mounted hard drives and free-fall sensor drives, can help reduce the risk of drive failure and potential data loss from impacts, vibrations and other movements. It provides the reliability and assurance data is protected without the need for a RAID solution. This is very important for users that are travelling, on set or in the field where conditions vary.

For customers who need the best graphics and computing performance to handle today's professional applications, the Dell Precision M6600 is now available with the Nvidia Quadro 5010M, the company's powerful, new flagship, professional mobile GPU. Professionals working with mission critical applications like computer-aided design (CAD), finite element analysis (FEA), and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can ensure they have the reliability and uncompromised computing accuracy they need with Error Correction Code (ECC) Memory and 64-Bit floating point precision, available on the Quadro 5010M.

The Quadro 5010M combines high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities with advanced visualization.

The 512GB SSD and Nvidia 5010M are available now globally with pricing starting at $1120 USD and $1640 USD, respectively.
