How Dell Precision Workstations Powered The World For 20 Years!

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

They also introduced a number of innovations like the Dell Precision Optimizer and Dell Reliable Memory Technology, while offering industry-leading support with Dell ProSupport Plus.

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.


Powerful Inside

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.


The 20th Anniversary Of Dell Precision

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.

New Dell Precision Fixed Workstations

The new-generation Precision 5820 Tower, Precision 7820 Tower, Precision 7920 Tower and Precision 7920 Rack combine brand-new chassis designs with the latest Intel Xeon processors, the next-generation AMD Radeon Pro SSG or NVIDIA Quadro GP100 professional graphics cards.

Certified for professional software applications, these new Dell Precision towers come with the exclusive Dell Precision Optimizer (DPO) and Dell Reliable Memory Technology (RMT) Pro. The patented DPO optimises performance based on your unique hardware and software combination, while RMT Pro ensures that memory challenges won’t kill your workflow.

Dell Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition

The Precision 5520 Anniversary Edition is Dell’s thinnest, lightest, and smallest mobile workstation available for a limited time with an exclusive hard anodized aluminum, brushed metallic finish in a brand-new Abyss color with anti-finger print coating. The device is available with two high-end configuration options.

Dell Canvas

Dell Canvas is a new workspace, designed to make digital creative work more naturally. It features a 27” QHD touch screen that sits horizontally on your desk and can be powered by your current PC ecosystem and the latest Windows 10 Creator’s Update.

A digital pen offers precise tactile accuracy and the totem offers diverse menu and shortcut interaction. Dell Canvas is already supported by some of the most critical professional applications in the industry.

    The NVIDIA Quadro Pascal GPUs Launched

    6 February 2017NVIDIA today introduced a range of NVIDIA Quadro products, all based on its Pascal architecture, that transform desktop workstations into supercomputers with breakthrough capabilities for professional workflows across many industries.

    Workflows in design, engineering and other areas are evolving rapidly to meet the exponential growth in data size and complexity that comes with photorealism, virtual reality and deep learning technologies. To tap into these opportunities, the new NVIDIA Quadro Pascal-based lineup provides an enterprise-grade visual computing platform that streamlines design and simulation workflows with up to twice the performance of the previous generation, and ultra-fast memory.

    “Professional workflows are now infused with artificial intelligence, virtual reality and photorealism, creating new challenges for our most demanding users,” said Bob Pette, vice president of Professional Visualisation at NVIDIA. “Our new Quadro lineup provides the graphics and compute performance required to address these challenges. And, by unifying compute and design, the Quadro GP100 transforms the average desktop workstation with the power of a supercomputer.”

    Benefits of Quadro Pascal Visual Computing Platform

    The new generation of Quadro Pascal-based GPUs –the GP100, P4000, P2000, P1000, P600 and P400 –enables millions of engineers, designers, researchers and artists to:

    • Unify simulation, HPC, rendering and design – The GP100 combines unprecedented double precision performance with 16GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) so users can conduct simulations during the design process and gather realistic multiphysics simulations faster than ever before. Customers can combine two GP100 GPUs with NVLink technology and scale to 32GB of HBM2 to create a massive visual computing solution on a single workstation.
    • Explore deep learning – The GP100 provides more than 20 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point precision computing–making it an ideal development platform to enable deep learning in Windows and Linux environments.
    • Incorporate VR into design and simulation workflows – The “VR Ready” Quadro GP100 and P4000 have the power to create detailed, lifelike, immersive environments. Larger, more complex designs can be experienced at scale.
    • Reap the benefits of photorealistic design – Pascal-based Quadro GPUs can render photorealistic images more than 18 times faster than a CPU.
    • Create expansive visual workspaces – Visualise data in high resolution and HDR color on up to four 5K displays.
    • Build massive digital signage configurations cost effectively – Up to 32 4K displays can be configured through a single chassis by combining up to eight P4000 GPUs and two Quadro Sync II cards.5

    The new cards complete the entire NVIDIA Quadro Pascal lineup including the previously announced P6000, P5000 and mobile GPUs. The entire NVIDIA Quadro Pascal lineup supports the latest NVIDIA CUDA 8compute platform providing developers access to powerful new Pascal features in developer tools, performance enhancements and new libraries including nvGraph.
