Dell announced its new Dell Precision workstation portfolio that includes what the company says is the smallest tower workstation chassis in its class, the Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor, and a new rack workstation, the Dell Precision R7610. In addition, the new family features the Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower.
The Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF) is approximately 30% smaller than competitive systems. The T1700 SFF and the Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower (MT) are designed and certified for engineering, architecture and finance professionals. The workstations also are ideal for higher education and high-school students working with 2D, entry-level 3D simulation or multitasking with demanding applications, the company says.
Both the units offer next-generation Intel workstation-class processors, NVIDIA and AMD professional-grade graphics with PCIx x16 Gen 3 slots and expanded ISV certifications. The T1700 SFF includes two front USB 3.0 ports.
The new Precision R7610 is as powerful as the T7600 tower workstation, and is available in a 2U rack form factor suited for datacenters or OEM embedded solutions. It features GPU pass-through and certifications with Citrix XenServer 6.1.0 using Citrix XenDesktop HDX 3D Pro, which allows all the resources of a dedicated discrete graphics card to be shared with multiple users in a hosted-shared environment or made available to a single user or virtual machine in a virtualized environment. It can support up to four single wide graphics cards.
