Dell promises 49% quieter workstations

Dell on Tuesday announced the launch of new tower and rack workstations — Dell Precision Tower 5810, Tower 7810, Tower 7910, and Rack 7910 – promising 49 percent quieter than Dell’s previous generation of tower workstations.

The enterprise IT vendor will be targeting customers in engineering, manufacturing, and media and entertainment fields.

The updated Dell Precision tower workstation portfolio includes the single socket Tower 5810 and dual processor Tower 7810 and expandable Tower 7910.

The new Dell Precision Rack 7910 offers all the capabilities of the Tower 7910 in a 2U rack form factor and support for workstation virtualization with Citrix XenServer and VMware ESX hypervisors.

The company said it is the first Dell Precision workstation to include an Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), which increases security by enabling remote datacenter manageability.

New Dell Precision Tower and Rack Workstations

The new tower and rack workstations feature Intel Xeon processors and are available with the latest AMD FirePro and NVIDIA Quadro professional-grade graphics technology.

The new workstations also offer improved I/O performance and data availability with up to 1TB4 of DDR4 RDIMM memory.

In addition, availability of Thunderbolt 2 technology on the new towers increases productivity and workflow innovation, supporting data transfer speeds of up to 20Gb/s and allowing for simultaneous 4k video file transfer.

The company said Dell Precision Optimizer v2.0 (DPO), which will be available for download from September 4, and will be factory-installed on Dell’s new tower workstations in mid-October, provides dynamic performance tuning of the workstation system settings according to the application.

Dell Quick Resource Locator (QRL) feature provides immediate access to extensive system information and detailed how to videos accessible via smartphone and a model-specific QR code, helping customers to be more efficient and effective in managing their hardware.
