Precision 5470 Delivers Unrivaled Power in a 14” Workstation

Introducing the mobile workstation that’s setting a new standard for power.

Big ideas start small. A sliver of inspiration or an aha moment can change the industry and leave an impact.

That’s exactly what we aimed to do when developing the Precision 5470 mobile workstation. Announced today, this workstation is a small device made for big ideas. It’s not just the most powerful 14” workstation in history, it’s also the smallest and thinnest in the world.¹

The timing is significant as we celebrate Precision’s 25th anniversary this year. It’s been 25 years of groundbreaking innovations and award-winning products that pushed the industry forward – and the Precision 5470 proves that we’re not slowing down any time soon.

Let’s meet the world’s most powerful 14” workstation

If there is one thing to walk away with, it should be this: The Precision 5470 delivers performance levels previously only offered in larger workstations. This much power is unavailable in any other competitive 14” form factors. The thinnest and smallest workstation – starting at 3.26lbs² – the Precision 5470 is the world’s first laptop based on the 12th Gen Intel® Core™ H-series processor that is both verified to meet the Intel® Evo™ platform requirements and is based on the Intel vPro® platform.³ It comes with up to 64GB of DDR5 memory,4 up to 4TB of storage and up to NVIDIA RTX™ A1000 graphics.Precision 5470 workstation angle view.

More power means more heat, making the Precision 5470’s cooling system vital to its performance, especially in such a streamlined design. To overcome this challenge, Dell engineers developed an innovative new thermal management system that fits within the confines of the compact system without sacrificing memory or the convenient Thunderbolt™ ports. We’ve included patented Dual Opposite Outlet fan technology to help the system run at high speeds needed for complex workflows. And our first bonded hinge architecture was developed to improve hot air exhaust, also contributing to the optimized system performance.

That’s not it either

The Precision 5470 is built around an immersive edge-to-edge 14” Infinity Edge display so you can see your ideas more clearly in a compact footprint for highly mobile creators, engineers and specialty professionals. The display comes with TUV-certified ComfortView Plus, a hardware-based low blue light filter that doesn’t consume resources or affect the true color in which your ideas deserve to be seen.

The Precision 5470 delivers high-speed Wi-Fi 6E connection and Dell Optimizer for Precision software makes your system work smarter with you. This AI-based software learns your work style and responds to your needs, automatically improving application performance, battery run-time, audio settings and privacy. Two new features that take this intelligence to the next level include:

    • New intelligent privacy features dim the screen when you look away and let you conceal sensitive information and projects when an onlooker is detected.
    • With mobility at the core of the Precision 5470, we now provide the world’s first simultaneous multi-network connection for faster data and video downloads5 – something every creator needs.

The Precision 5470 isn’t just smart – it looks and feels good too. A large click pad provides plenty of room to navigate around the screen, while the modern Pro keyboard and optional fingerprint reader provide comfort and easy access. An optional touch and pen-enabled display provides more ways for users to bring their creations to life. The premium look and feel of the Precision 5470 extend to the body of the device which is constructed from engineered aluminum and finished with a texture treatment for added tactility and grip.

And if you weren’t already sold – consider this:

    • Dell is supporting emerging creators and professionals with training at no additional cost. For the first time – and unique to Dell – we’re bundling top ISV (Independent Software Vendor) professional software training for ANY NEW Precision workstation purchased in the U.S., completely complimentary.6 So you can sharpen your skills on Adobe Creative Cloud applications, Maxon Cinema 4D, select Autodesk applications, Blackmagic Design Resolve and more. Trainings are virtual, live, interactive and instructor-led, with ISV certification of completion provided at the end.
    • In alignment with Dell’s commitment to sustainable design, we’re proud to say that the Precision 5470 uses 100% recycled or renewable materials in the packaging.7

Our Precision workstations have delivered innovative technologies that power some of the most data and graphic-intensive applications for the last 25 years. The Precision mobile workstation portfolio continues to level-up with the new Precision 5570 and 5770 (Dell’s thinnest and smallest 15” and 17” mobile workstations)8 and the Precision 3000 series – all made even more powerful with 12th Gen Intel® Core™ processors. The new Precision 3570 is the perfect entry-level workstation, featuring up to 21% bio-based materials in the LCD coverlid, aligning with our sustainability goals.

There’s no better way to celebrate our 25th anniversary than by pushing boundaries further than anything we have done before. Stay tuned for more exciting Precision updates later this year.
