    A graphics card is hardware dedicated solely to helping the workstation render graphics. After the processor, the graphics card is probably the hardware component that has the most impact on mobile workstation performance.

    Unlike laptops designed for typical business use, Dell Precision™ mobile workstations come standard with discrete graphics cards that support professional 3D OpenGL® and DirectX® graphics. They also meet or exceed the minimum graphics requirements for most leading workstation-class applications.

    Be sure to check the minimum and recommended graphics card requirements for the workstation application or applications that will be run on this workstation.

    The system you are configuring may or may not include all of the options listed here.
