The Dell Precision
Dell revealed the Dell Precision T5500, T7500, and T3500 tower workstations.
One of the first workstation lines to ship with Intel Xeon 5500 Nehalem processors, the Dell Precision T5500 and T7500 deliver up to 90 percent better multi-threaded application performance.
The new systems are purpose-engineered for professionals in engineering, media, entertainment, biosciences, exploration, economic modeling, and risk analysis.
Kinds of Dell Precision
Designed for performance, reliability, and scalability, the three new Dell Precision tower systems are available for order and include:
The Dell Precision T7500 is the best powerful Dell workstation. It has 192GB of three-channel DDR3 ECC memory at 1066 or 1333MH and extends up to two quad-core processors, z, dual native Gen 2 PCIe x16 graphics slots with up to 450 watts and can support for NVIDIA SLI technology without a riser. The system starts at $1,800.
The Dell Precision T5500 offers dual-socket Intel Xeon performance in a small footprint system with a memory capacity of up to 72GB3 and graphics slots that scale up to 300 watts (two 150W or single 225W). Prices start at $1,620.
The Dell Precision T3500 offers a balance of performance, scalability, and affordability.
The T3500 features up to 24GB DDR3 ECC memory and an integrated memory controller, resulting in low latency and excellent application performance, according to Dell. It starts at $999.
Dell partners with at least 35 leading independent software vendors (ISVs) to test and certify compatibility for 90 applications in areas such as mechanical computer-aided design, architecture, engineering, construction, digital content creation, biosciences, financial services, and oil and gas.
Broad-based ISV certification helps customers create a complete, customized solution for the specific single- or multi-threaded application they use.
There is also up to 350 percent more memory bandwidth on the Dell Precision T7500 and up to 282 percent more bandwidth on the T5500 with dual processors using the SiSoft Sandra 2009 Bandwidth benchmark test.
