Today Dell announced its new desktop and mobile workstation models, the Dell Precision M4800 and M6800 mobile workstations and the T3810, T5610 and T7610 desktop workstations. The release means across-the-board updates in graphics and processors, as well as expanding the memory capability on many machines, or adding the capability to use faster memory.
The new Precision M4800 and M6800 mobile workstations bring the latest 'Haswell' fourth-generation i5 and i7 processors to the product line, up to and including the Core i7 Extreme Edition, along with the latest graphics from Nvidia's Quadro and AMD's FirePro lines.
The M6800 also allows for up to 32 GB of 1600 MHz memory, or 16 GB of 1866 MHz memory. It can also take up to four storage devices, and features an optional 10-finger touch display.
The M4800, meanwhile, can take the same mount of memory, up to three storage devices and an optional QHD+ IGZO (opens in new tab) display featuring 3200x1800 resolution and a full sRGB color gamut.
Both machines also feature optional WiGig wireless docking capability, MIL-STD-810G ruggedization, and Waves MaxxAudio Pro audio enhancement.
Dell's Precision desktops are also being updated, in this case to the Ivy Bridge-E processors, and also feature a slight case redesign from the previous T5600, adding another drive bay (an item we specifically mentioned in our review of the 5600.) The desktop update also features enhanced memory speeds (up to 1866) and enhanced capacities (up to 512 GB in the T7610, and doubling the DIMM slots in the T3610 up to 8.) The T7610 will also be capable of powering up to three high-end GPUs, including powering two Nvidia Quadro K6000 cards when they become available in October.
Other new additions to the desktop machines are options for a Micron PCIe SSD card and an Intel Xeon Phi 3210A card, as well as Intel's Cache Acceleration Software-Workstation (CAS-W) and the Dell Performance Optimizer software for automatically tuning the performance of your workstation based on profiles they have developed for many professional applications.
