Get ready to accomplish more—faster than ever. Dell has rolled out a new portfolio of powerful mobile and tower workstations that harnesses the latest technology throughout. In addition, Dell also boasts end-to-end support solutions so that the only downtime experienced is voluntary. The one problem for those searching for a new workstation—which one should you choose? Here are a few things to consider:
Starting with its new mobile offerings, the Dell Precision M4800 is the first laptop to bring a 15.6″ Quad HD+ IGZO panel, with a resolution (3200 x 1800) so clear it beats Apple’s Retina display, to the field. And the Dell M6800 is the only machine to offer an optional 10-finger Wacom multi-touch on a 17.3-inch display (caveat: keyboard is not waterproof to protect from designer drool). These powerful workstations are also the first to offer WiGig wireless docking and have substantially improved audio performance with WAVES MaxxAudio Pro integration.
Since speed and power are important when using high-powered software, all Dell’s new mobile workstations run on the latest processor and graphic card technologies, including fourth generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors—up to Core i7 Extreme Edition—and choice of AMD FirePro and NVIDIA Quadro professional graphic cards. All of the user data can then move swiftly when packed with a total of 16GB of 1866MHz memory.
When it comes to tower solutions, Dell has just released the Precision T3610, T5610, and T7610 workstations. As you might expect, with a little more room under the hood you get even more performance. These machines come with Intel Cache Acceleration Software, which improves workstation application performance; PCIe SSDs, accelerating storage processes; and updates have been made to Dell’s Precision Performance Optimizer , a tool that configures settings based on the software application to provide maximum performance.
These new towers were built to handle the most rigorous production requirements out there, from professional engineering and 3D animation to scientific analysis and complex 3D modeling. This also means working seamlessly with the software that makes all these tasks possible, whether using a mobile workstation or tower. All of the new workstations are independent software vendor (ISV)-certified, meaning all the major professional software applications will run at peak performance, from AutoCAD to Avid. When a more hands-on approach is needed, Dell has one ready.
Dell ProSupport is a service that provides 24/7 direct access to highly trained experts who are ready to deliver professional-grade tech support. Dell’s ProSupport also provides remote and on-site support and will offers four to eight hour parts and labor response oprtions so you don’t have to worry about a long down time. When a problem is outside the expertise of the ProSupport staff, Dell is ready with third-party assistance. Another optional service will provide data and asset protection.
The demands of software have never been greater. Thankfully there’s a new family of workstation hardware from Dell to exceed the demands.
