Today, we are excited to announce our expanded Dell Precision workstation portfolio that will help redefine the boundaries of workstation computing for our customers. At Dell, our goal is to give customers the power to do more through secure, manageable and reliable solutions as well as through cutting-edge technology, which is why I am even more excited to present the new Dell Precision workstations.

The new Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF) and T1700 Mini-Tower (MT) are the smallest and lightest workstations in their class – approximately 30 percent smaller than competitive systems. This means easy deployment of an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certified workstation without worrying about limited space.

The T1700 SFF and T1700 MT offer next generation Intel workstation-class processors, NVIDIA and AMD professional grade graphics and expanded ISV certifications to do more, faster. While these nimble workstations are designed and certified for engineers, architects, finance professionals and students working with 2D and entry-level 3D simulation.

Complementing the T1700s in the expanded portfolio is the next generation Dell Precision R7610, the world’s most powerful rack workstation.  The R7610 rack features significantly more power, an enhanced remote experience and new virtualization capabilities for engineers, designers and other professional users that demand the best.

And with the power of our flagship T7600 tower workstation in a sleek 2U rack form-factor, it is the perfect solution for professionals to share resources, leverage their worldwide talent pool and centralize, secure and manage data.

Further, the R7610 leverages our Reliable Memory Technology, a Dell patented code that eliminates virtually all memory errors.  This technology ends the need for extensive full memory tests and mitigates the frustrating IT support calls and memory DIMM replacement, something our customers are sure to appreciate.

Finally, in addition to our best in class 1:1 remote computing model, we are now enabling our customers to give four users access to one rack workstation without sacrificing performance, resulting in increased access and better utilization of their assets.  The new R7610 achieves this via 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 uniquely shared with multiple users in a hosted-shared environment or made available to a single user or virtual machine in a virtualized environment.

The R7610 is equally at home on an oil rig or factory shop floor – or comfortably deployed in a data center with flexible remote access. Our customers in oil and gas, finance and media and entertainment have been asking for high performance virtualization solutions for some time and we are really pleased to deliver this to them and the many benefits it provides – increased security, manageability, flexibility of deployment and endpoint devices, global collaboration, among many others. In all, our enhanced Dell Precision portfolio extends our resolve to provide you, the customer, with the best technology offerings to maximize your success.

We are excited to hear your success stories and learn how the T1700 and R7610 have empowered you and your organization to do more.
