Dell Precision Tower Workstations Provide New Levels of Performance
Dell recently announced its newly redesigned portfolio of tower workstations: the Dell Precision T7600, T5600, T3600, and the T1650. These workstations deliver superb performance, accessibility and best-in-class chassis design to help creative and design professionals deliver results faster. From creating the 854 stereo 3D VFX shots featured in the award-winning movie 'Hugo' to analyzing seismic data to accelerating exploration of natural reserves, companies around the world rely on Dell Precision workstations to design and deliver results fast.
“Dell Precision workstations are the number one recommendation I've made to other visual effects professionals over the years. We need cutting-edge technology and performance while working tough deadlines,” said Adam Watkins, Computer Graphics Supervisor, Pixomondo. “I have been delighted --and sometimes saved -- by every Dell workstation I've ever used for more than 20 shows! It's one technology that I know I can consistently count on and I’m looking forward to the new design and performance of Dell’s new workstations."
The computer corporation obtained input from hundreds of the top engineering, finance, software development, scientific, and media and entertainment companies to design the new chassis. The interior separates areas more commonly accessed by users, such as memory and hard drives, from more service accessed components, such as wiring harnesses and fans, thereby simplifying tasks and greatly reducing time required for service or upgrades. Additional innovations built into the new workstation family include an externally removable power supply, front accessible hard drives and Reliable Memory Technology (RMT), which eliminates the need for extensive full memory tests, IT support calls or memory DIMM replacement.
Frank Soqui, General Manager, Workstation Product Group, Intel Corporation said, “Dell’s new Precision workstations, based on the recently announced Intel Xeon processor E5-1600/2600 product families, will provide artist, animators, engineers, analysts and scientists the performance they need to inspire their creativity.”
The new Dell tower workstation portfolio includes:
- Dell Precision T7600 – The advanced architecture of the T7600 features one of the highest performing CPU stacks, power supplies and graphics power for a dual-socket system. It offers up to two Intel Xeon E5-2687W 150 watt processors with a total of 16 computational cores, a 1300W 90-percent efficiency power supply, up to 600W of graphics, and up to four full x16 graphics slots capable of powering an NVIDIA Quadro ultra high-end 6000 professional graphics card and two NVIDIA Tesla C2075 processors simultaneously.
- Dell Precision T5600 – This powerful dual-socket workstation features up to two Intel Xeon processors each supporting eight processing cores, 128GB of quad-channel ECC memory, two power supply options of 635W or 825W and up to an NVIDIA Quadro 5000 high-end professional graphics card and NVIDIA Tesla C2075 processor.
- Dell Precision T3600 – Dell’s single socket workstation possesses an Intel Xeon processor E5-1600 or E5-2600 family, two power supply options, up to 64GB 1600MHz ECC or non-ECC memory and up to a single NVIDIA Quadro 6000 or two NVIDIA Quadro 5000 professional graphics cards, and an NVIDIA Tesla C2075 processor.
- Dell Precision T1650 – This entry-level tower workstation offers certified performance for professionals working with 2D and basic 3D models, editing photos, CAD drawings and web development. The T1650 will feature next-generation Intel Xeon processors, up to 75W for graphics and new ISV and graphic certifications.
These new workstations offer NVIDIA Maximus technology, which enables simultaneous visualization and rendering or simulation, and feature a broad range of professional-class graphics cards from AMD and NVIDIA including up to an AMD FirePro V7900 and NVIDIA Quadro 6000. They also come with Dell Data Protection, optional Intel vPro technology, lockable ports and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that offers security for network-based client computing.
Jeff Brown, General manager, Professional Solutions Group, NVIDIA said, “With NVIDIA Maximus technology, which revolutionized the workstation last fall with simultaneous visualization and rendering or simulation, professionals are empowered to design and create like never before with these latest workstations from Dell.”
The Dell Precision T3600, T5600 and T7600 workstations will be available worldwide starting in May. The Dell Precision T1650 will be available in June.
