Dell Releases Smallest Tower, New Rack Workstations

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.
