Dell is one of the world’s most enduring tech brands, outlasting even IBM. Ask most consumers, and Dell brands like Alienware, Inspiron and XPS pops to mind. But did you know that the Dell Precision workstations have been powering many of the world’s greatest endeavours for the last 20 years?
Dell Precision Workstations
Dell created the Precision workstation line for CAD, architecture and computer graphics professionals. The first model – the Dell Precision 410 MT – was introduced in 1998. Powered by dual Intel Pentium II processors, it was a computing beast for its time.
Over the next twenty years, Dell Precision workstations steadily racked up a number of firsts:
- the world’s first dual-core workstation
- the world’s first mobile workstation
- the world’s first rack-mounted workstation
- the world’s first VR-ready mobile workstation
- the world’s first workstation powerful enough to develop and deploy machine learning and AI applications and algorithms
It’s no surprise that Dell Precision workstations have been deployed in industries as diverse as automotive, aeronautics, oil and gas, to finance, media and entertainment. By 2016, IDC reported that Dell Precision tied HP for the title of the No. 1 Workstation Worldwide.
One of the secret to the success of the Dell Precision platform is the long-standing Dell partnership with Intel. Every Precision workstation – whether desktop, mobile or rack-mounted – is powered by the latest Intel Core i7 and Intel Xeon processors, with Intel vPro.
This allows Dell’s Precision workstations to offer up to 28 processor cores, and memory sizes of up to 512 GB, to support the most demanding requirements.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dell’s Precision workstations, Dell introduced the next-generation Dell Precision fixed workstation models, a special anniversary edition of the Precision 5520 mobile workstation, and the Dell Canvas.
