Dell has announced new workstations aimed at compute-intensive graphics users and applications. During SIGGRAPH 2014, Dell introduced the Precision Towers 5810, 7810, 7910, and the Rack 7910. The workstations are updates to Dell’s previous Precision Tower, 5610, 7610, and Rack 7610 workstations. Included component upgrades from the older workstation versions are the latest Xeon processors, new graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD, and two times the memory capacity for up to 256GB DDR4 SDRAM for the 5810 and the 7810 and up to 1TB for the 7910 series.

The more expandable Tower 7910 allows for four graphics cards up to 675W and up to four 3.5″ or eight 2.5″ hard drives. The Rack 7910 is the 2U version of the Tower 7910 which offers support for Citrix XenServer and VMware ESX workstation virtualization. With the announcement made during the SIGGRAPH 2014 computer graphics conference, Dell hopes to demonstrate its commitment to the high-end graphics workstation market. As of Q1 2014, Dell currently controls 33 percent of this market sector according to the JPR Workstation Report. HP is the current leader in this sector with 40 percent of the market. Dell’s Precision workstations will be bundled with the latest version of Dell Precision Optimizer (DPO) software. This software will automatically adjust system settings for optimal performance.
