Topics in this article

I’m proud to announce that we are building on our more than 15 years of workstation industry leadership today by introducing the world’s most powerful 15” and 17” mobile workstations – the Dell Precision M4700, M6700 and M6700 Covet Edition. These systems deliver unrivalled performance, dependability and innovative design allowing professionals like film editors, architects and geophysicists to do their critical work anytime, anywhere.

As a result of our strong heritage, direct customer relationships and world-class engineers and designers, we know the market better than anyone and are able to consistently introduce industry-leading solutions to solve specific problems for our our customers. Examples of those solutions include the first mobile workstation, first dual-processor workstation and first 2U rack workstation.

In addition to being the most powerful mobile workstations, the new M4700 and M6700 offer a number of first and industry leading technologies to help our customers design, render and analyze more data faster. A few of those features include:

  • First to offer NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro solution that provides true to life 3D visualization

  • Most extensive choice of professional graphics including NVIDIA Quadro K-series, AMD FirePro, and Intel integrated graphics for NVIDIA Optimus to extend battery life

  • Only to offer AMD FirePro M6000 with PCIex16 Gen 3 for fast throughput for large data sets

  • Fastest memory speed of 1866MHz for high performance and faster access to large data sets.

  • Highest Expandability and Storage Options: Large drive options, Mini Card and RAID options, and an optical drive for DVD-ROM or Slot load DVD+/-RW; Blu-ray Disc writer plus an optical bay caddy for additional hard drive or solid state drive

Our customers, especially creative professionals, will be thrilled that we heard them and are bringing back the Covet Edition with a Phoenix Red color finish and edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for brighter images.

On all three Precision mobile workstations, we also offer beautiful IPS RGB LED displays with one of the widest spectrum of colors and more than 100% Adobe color gamut for color critical work. All display options now open more than 180 degrees enabling a flat surface for easier use of the touch capabilities and integration into medical carts and other vertical uses.

We realize weight, battery life and ports are critical to our mobile workstation customers. To enable long periods of performance and the utmost productivity, we offer three video outputs, DP, HDMI and VGA with screws, the lightest 17-inch mobile workstation, and dual quiet fans and cooling solutions for the CPU and graphics.

Finally, we test, certify and support our workstations for maximum dependability so our customers can focus on their creative and design workflows and less on system administration. You can learn more about the dependability and other benefits our technology brings our customers like Tippett Studio, Appalachian State University, and Repertoire Productions in the video below:

During my discussion with these customers three themes emerged: Dell Precision workstations offer unbeatable performance, smart design and outright dependability. Sanjay Das, CTO, Tippett Studio, said it best when asked about the benefits he’s seen from using Dell workstations, "Dell enables me to sleep at night knowing we have a technology partner that understands the complexities and challenges of our compute infrastructure. And during the day, my team can focus less on system administration and more on improving efficiencies in the workflow and improving the creative output of our studio.”

Today’s announcement underscores our commitment to the market, our customers and the promise of high-performance, dependability and smart design that comes with the Dell Precision brand. We look forward to hearing your feedback on the new systems.
