New workstations offer future fourth-generation Intel Core processor support
Dell today announced an expanded and stronger Dell Precision workstation portfolio that includes the company's smallest tower workstation chassis in the Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF), a more powerful Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower, and Dell's most powerful rack workstation, the Dell Precision R7610.
Both the T1700 SFF and T1700 MT offer next generation Intel workstation-class processors including the Xeon E3-1200 V3 family or fourth generation Intel Core processors, NVIDIA and AMD professional-grade graphics in a PCI-E x16 third generation slot. The T1700 SFF is the only entry-level workstation offered by Dell to offer two front USB 3.0 ports to help move data faster and enable easy external connectivity.
The new R7610 boasts dual Intel E5-2687W 8-core processors, 16 DIMM slots allowing for four-channel RAM I/O, 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 shared with multiple users in a hosted-shared environment or made available to a single user. 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. Expanded capabilities, including NVidia GRID with virtualized graphics, will be available later this year.
