Dell Australia  announces a new workstation portfolio with high-performing and dependable solutions for entry level and high-end users.

Dell’s expanded Dell Precision workstation portfolio ranges from the small tower workstation, the Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor to the powerful rack workstation, the Dell Precision R7610. The Dell Precision family also features a more powerful and reliable Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower.

Dell Precision T1700 small entry-level tower workstations

Offering powerful workstation performance at near desktop PC prices, the new Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF) is approximately 30% smaller than competitive systems and also lightweight, allowing the simple deployment of an ISV certified workstation almost anywhere, regardless of space constraints. Designed and certified for engineering, architecture and finance professionals, the T1700 SFF and Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower (MT) workstations are also ideal for higher education and high-school students working with 2D or entry-level 3D simulation, or multitasking with demanding applications.

Both the T1700 SFF and T1700 MT offer next generation Intel workstation-class processors, NVIDIA and AMD professional-grade graphics with PCIx x16 Gen 3 slots and expanded ISV certifications to help accomplish more in less time. Two front USB 3.0 ports in the T1700 SFF help move data faster and enable easy connectivity to external media and accessories.

Dell recommends dual Dell UltraSharp U2312HM displays and the Dell Dual Monitor Stand MDS14 to maximise viewing real-estate and productivity for T1700 workstations.

Dell Precision R7610 rack workstations

Offering ultimate performance and dependability for remote and virtualised environments, Dell’s newly updated rack workstations deliver significantly more power, an enhanced remote experience and new virtualisation capabilities for engineers, designers and professional users.

The new Dell Precision R7610 now packs the power of Dell’s flagship T7600 tower workstation in an intelligently designed 2U rack form-factor ideal for data centres or OEM embedded solutions. The Dell Precision R7610 enables customers to centralise, secure and manage data, leverage their worldwide talent pool, and share resources for improved cost effectiveness.
Four users can use a single R7610 rack workstation without compromising on performance, helping organisations better utilise 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 virtualised environment.

The R7610 can support up to four single wide graphics cards such as the NVIDIA Quadro K2000 and AMD FirePro W5000 mainstream cards, and high-performance NVIDIA Quadro K4000 cards, or up to three double-wide NVIDIA Quadro K5000 cards.

Users can optionally connect to the R7610 1:1 via Teradici Tera2 PCoIP from Dell Wyse P25 zero client, paired with dual Dell UltraSharp U2413 displays with PremierColor and the Dell Dual Monitor Stand MDS14. Alternatively, customers can remotely connect through other Dell and non-Dell computing devices including thin clients, laptops, desktops or mobile devices with Citrix Receiver.

The R7610 now comes with the exclusive Reliable Memory Technology, a Dell patented code programmed at the BIOS level that eliminates virtually all memory errors and therefore the need for extensive full memory tests, IT support calls and memory DIMM replacement.

The R7610 also is designed, tested and certified for a broad selection of applications for confident, reliable performance. In addition, the memory has been expanded to four channels with up to 256GB in 16 DIMM slots, with future availability of 512GB, an integrated 6 GB/s LSI2308 SATA/SAS controller and available dual Intel E5-2687W 150 watt 8 core processors.
