Dell has launched a new line of Precision Workstations with four new models.
Dell says it solicited input from some of the top engineering, finance, software development, scientific, and media & entertainment companies during the development process to design the new chassis. Another improvement includes the design of the workstation interiors, where areas more commonly accessed by users, such as memory and hard drives, are separated from more service accessed components, such as wiring harnesses and fans, making it easier for these machines to be serviced or upgraded.
The new Dell tower workstation portfolio includes:
Dell Precision T7600 – The T7600 features one of the highest performing CPU stacks, power supplies and graphics power for a dual-socket system, says Dell. It offers up to two Intel Xeon E5-2687W 150 watt processors with a total of 16 computational cores, a 1300 watt 90 percent efficiency power supply, up to 600 watts of graphics, and up to four full x16 graphics slots which can power up to an NVIDIA Quadro ultra high-end 6000 professional graphics card and two NVIDIA Tesla C2075 processors at the same time.The Dell Precision T7600 starts at $2,149 .
