Presicion T7710 upgrade options

Jump to solution

The T7710 was crawling during rendering of an hour of 4k footage and took about 6 hours to complete. Need to know from Dell or other users if the existing motherboard and support an Intel Xeon-W 10885M processor for more power, DELL 370-ABYW 32GB for more RAM. I am also considering upgrading the graphics card to quadro M5000M.

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the Dell Community @majpogi 

This is what I have found.

You can upgrade to a Xeon Quad Core but you would need to replace the system board. "Soldered"

NOTE: Install either one, two, or four memory modules in the memory module slots to ensure optimum system performance. Installing three memory modules can lead to system performance issues.

The Quadro M5000M is a go.
