Strengthening its entry-level repertoire of industry-grade workstations—and aimed at engineering & manufacturing, media & entertainment and other verticals—Dell has launched Precision 3000 Series of quality machines in both rack as well as tower form-factors. The rack model includes Dell Precision 3930, while Dell Precision 3630 and Dell Precision 3430 come in tower form-factor. The company has also brought in newer options for upgrading earlier workstation models including Dell Precision 5820.
“Customers across verticals have come to rely on Dell workstations to deliver the highest performing systems for their critical workload. But as we enter the next era of workstations, power is becoming table stakes and the conversation is accelerating to immersive workflows utilizing even smaller footprints. Dell is leading the way in this evolution with these new entry-level workstations designed to deliver the ultimate in performance with a substantially smaller footprint,” said Rahul Tikoo, Vice President and General Manager of Dell Precision. “When access to leading technology improves, innovation flourishes. Sometimes something as simple as a smaller form factor can unleash new ideas and capabilities that have the power to reshape an industry”, added Tikoo.
Built with customer feedback in mind, the Dell Precision 3930 Rack delivers powerful performance in a compact industrial footprint. The 1U height delivers better rack density, extended operating temperatures and features such as short depth, dust filters and legacy ports allow it to integrate seamlessly into complex medical imaging and industrial automation solutions.
With the debut of Intel Xeon E processors and recently introduced 8th generation Intel Core processors, the rack provides up to 64GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory. In addition the Intel Xeon E processor supports Error Correcting Code (ECC) for increased reliability.
The rack offers best-in-class workstation performance and provides the flexibility of up to 250W of doublewide GPUs, and scalability with up to 24TB of storage. With 3 PCIe slots including an optional PCI slot, this rack workstation can tackle complex tasks with ease.
A range of NVIDIA Quadro professional GPUs are available. With the Quadro P6000, users benefit from 24GB of GDDR5X and powerful ultra-high-end graphics performance. In addition, customers have the option to choose from a range AMD Radeon Pro graphics.
Power packed in smaller foot-print
Going small can lead to big things, and Dell has purpose-built these new entry-level workstations to fuel the future of innovation across engineering design, science, mathematics and other data- and graphics-intensive fields. Having a highly powerful machine no longer requires having a large work space or a large budget, making this level of performance available to many companies and workers for the first time.
The Dell Precision 3630 Tower is 23 percent smaller than the previous generation with more expandability so workers can precisely get the solution they need regardless of workspace constraints. It features a range of easy-to-reach ports that make it possible to connect to external data sources, storage devices and much more. As workstation users often create IP, Dell will also offer an optional Smart Card (CAC/PIV) reader to make secure data management easier.
It may be small in size, but it’s big in performance – ideal for creating or enjoying VR experiences and other resource-intensive tasks. It features 8th Generation Intel Core i and new professional-grade Xeon E processors with faster memory speeds up to 2666MHz 64GB and offers up to 225W of graphics support.
The Dell Precision 3630 Tower offers scalable storage featuring SATA and PCIe NVMe SSDs, which can be configured for up to 14TB with RAID support.
The new Dell Precision 3430 Small Form Factor Tower is a great fit for many workstation users, offering many of the same benefits as the Precision 3630 but in an even smaller form factor and up to 55W of graphics support. It’s also expandable with up to 6TB of storage with RAID support.
Dell has also introduced support for Intel Core X-series processors in addition to the Intel Xeon W processor options already available on the Dell Precision 5820 Tower. These new processor options bring the enhanced performance and reliability of a workstation at a more affordable price point for customers.
On all Dell Precision 3000 series workstations announced, adding Intel Optane memory keeps responsiveness high and high-capacity storage costs lower. Customers can expect the same build quality and reliability of the Dell Precision line.
