Dell Rolls Out New Tower, Rack Workstations

Designed to address mission- and time-critical needs of customers in compute-intensive fields, Dell’s new tower and rack workstations based on the new Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 and E5-1600 v3 processors are available now. 

With 2133MHz DDR4 memory, they perform up to 4.7 times faster than the previous generation, making it possible to design and iterate faster than ever.

This launch is unique because all the core system components have been refreshed at the same time, which is very unusual across the industry – in addition to Intel’s latest processors, the new workstations feature the latest AMD FirePro and Nvidia Quadro professional-grade graphics technology, deliver faster speeds and increased memory capacity, and enable Dell workstation customers to take advantage of greater performance and scalability by upgrading all the key components at once.

The updated tower workstations include the compact, single-socket Dell Precision Tower 5810 and dual-processor Dell Precision Tower 7810 and the highly expandable dual-processor Dell Precision Tower 7910, all of which feature Dell’s industry-leading chassis design for quick internal access for updates and maintenance. Also new with these systems is the option of Thunderbolt 2 technology, which allows for faster transport speeds and simultaneous 4K video file transfer, and quieter acoustics versus the previous generation with the Tower 7910 running up to 49 percent quieter under heavy processor workloads.  

Also available now is the new Dell Precision Rack 7910, which offers all the capabilities of the Tower 7910 in a 2U rack form factor including forthcoming qualifications of Citrix XenServer and VMware ESX hypervisors to support virtualized workstation environments with true workstation class graphics.  

Dell Precision Tower 5810 – Delivers up to 75 percent better performance for iterative design and prototyping and provides higher graphics performance than previous generation systems, of up to 6.8 times higher on Autodesk Maya, 5.5 times higher on Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, and 5.5 times higher on PTC Creo

Dell Precision Tower 7810 –  Enables peak performance with dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors featuring up to 14 cores per processor.

Dell Precision Tower 7910 – Performs up to 4.7 times faster performance for analysis, simulation and rendering, and delivers higher graphics performance than previous generations, up to 4.3 times higher on Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks , 3.6 times higher on PTC Creo, and 3.2 times higher on Siemens NX

Dell Precision Rack 7910 – Offers secure, flexible deployments for 1:1 or virtualized 1:many computing environments with the same power and scalability of the Dell Precision Tower 7910 in a slim, 2U design  

The new tower workstations will also release with a new version of the Dell Precision Optimizer announced earlier this month, which automatically configures workstation settings to maximize application performance and delivers gains of up to 121 percent, and will also be available with new Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software to enable remote access for workstation users regardless of location.
