More Flexible Purchase Options and Optimized Application Performance for Dell and Autodesk Customers

Dell Workstation with Precision Performance OptimizerIn conjunction with Autodesk’s launch of its 2015 Design Suites today, which offers new convenient, flexible subscription options, we are excited to announce an enhanced partnership with the company to make it even easier and more convenient for our customers to purchase, upgrade and support their Dell Precisions workstations and Autodesk software and optimize their design workflows.  

We’ve been working closely with Autodesk behind the scenes to test, certify and optimize their new portfolio of design applications, their most ambitious redesign of the software in more than ten years, on our latest Dell Precision tower, mobile and heavily configured rack workstation ready for virtualized environments.

With an ISV-certified system, our architecture, manufacturing, engineering and design professionals know they can depend on their applications and workstations to work reliably together to get projects done on time and to standards, and get fast, accurate results for even the most demanding modeling, simulation and visualization projects. For example, Tyler Hanel, lead surfboard engineer at KKL relies on the consistent performance of Dell Precision T3610 workstations with AutoCAD to deliver precise, uniformly designed surfboards to surfing competitors around the world.

Additionally, our performance engineering team worked with Autodesk to architect an application profile for the Dell Precision Performance Optimizer (DPPO) to maximize the performance of the new design applications on Dell Precision workstations. DPPO automatically configures Dell workstation settings per application and today we’re excited to announce the release of a new profile for Autodesk AutoCAD that can deliver increased performance. The profile is available today via
