Dell Precision Workstations Get Smaller, Faster and Cooler

first_imgThe new Dell Precision 3550 and 3551 mobile workstations offer workstation-class reliability and performance at an accessible price point. They are ideal for users with less intensive graphic needs, like those working on 2D CAD, heavy Excel workbooks or entry-level creative applications.Photo courtesy of Dell Client Technologist, Amit BhagaThe cool factor – intelligent design inside and out Rigorous tasks and high-performance applications often result in the creation of more heat. Dell engineers have developed thermal design solutions to overcome the challenge of balancing the high performance of CPU/GPU concurrency and higher wattage graphics power despite the reduction in footprint the new mobile workstations. Examples include the adoption of dual opposite outlet fans that dissipate heat quickly, alongside thinner vapor chambers in the place of some heat pipes. Software-based thermal management solutions, high-tech Gore technology insulation layers, plus graphite spreaders and copper materials provide impressive thermal performance.

Dell’s innovative engineering and design isn’t limited to our mobile workstation portfolio. Today, we’re also announcing upcoming additions to our entry-level tower workstation line up, including a brand-new ultra-small form factor (USFF) workstation, the Dell Precision 3240 Compact.Designed for the tightest workspaces and Edge Computing workloads, this small (2.3L) yet powerful system can push up to seven 4k displays and will be ready for VR, with NVIDIA Quadro RTX™ 3000 professional graphics. Available from Q3 2020, this ultra-small form factor workstation is perfect for use in schools, factories, retail, and trading floor environments, where space is a premium.We’re also introducing the new Dell Precision 3640 Tower workstation and Dell Precision 3440 small form factor (SFF) workstation, available from July. They are perfect for content creators and engineers working with 3D or complex 2D graphics, as well as power users working with large data sets and complicated analysis that require ISV certification. These scalable and affordable systems offer a range of high-performance options for productivity and accessible ports for connectivity.Optimized for your unique workloads As with all Dell Precision workstations, we collaborate with Independent Software Vendors (ISV) to test and optimize these systems to give you the best user experience possible. Additionally, the new Dell Optimizer for Precision, exclusive to Dell, is now included on these platforms. Dell Optimizer for Precision is the only AI-based optimization software in the industry that automatically tunes your application performance using machine learning.We’re excited to share our latest innovations with you – Dell Precision customers are doing some of the most ground-breaking, innovative work out there, and we can’t wait to see what you create with these new products!Featured photo courtesy of Mark Mann Photography¹ Based on Dell analysis using publicly available data, January 2020.

High-end application users working in mission-critical workflows have historically relied on desktop workstations to provide the power and performance they required. And back when “work” was viewed as a destination, it didn’t matter. However, the workplace is changing. Whether customers are working on ground-breaking healthcare research, designing innovative engineering solutions or editing the next big TV series, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice performance for portability.Today, we announced the biggest updates to Dell’s mobile workstation line since we first introduced the award-winning Dell Precision M3800 in 2013. Our product and engineering teams continue to redefine the mobile workstation category. With this mobile workstation lineup, we believe we’ve found the perfect combination of power and style. We’re bringing award-winning Dell design and combining it with the latest thermal innovations, professional graphics and powerful CPU technologies into sleek devices to deliver heavy-duty performance wherever your work takes you.Designed for professional creators and engineers in mind, our smallest and thinnest mobile workstations¹ are the Dell Precision 5550 and the brand-new Dell Precision 5750. These 15- and 17-inch workstations feature stunning 4-sided InfinityEdge 16:10 aspect ratio displays and a top bezel Infrared camera for maximum screen real estate and an improved video conferencing experience. Starting at 4lbs and 4.7lbs², with a 92 percent & 94 percent display/body ratio respectively, they perfectly balance power, style and mobility in a lightweight aluminum package. The Dell Precision 5750 also joins the 7000 series in the NVIDIA® RTX Studio program, with the availability of NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 3000 graphics.

Vaughan expects Captain Cook to step down

first_imgALSTAIR Cook is “very close” to quitting as England captain, believes former skipper Michael Vaughan.Cook, 31, said he will “go home and do some thinking” over his future after the 4-0 Test series defeat by India.“His body language over the last three matches was one where he looks like he might be thinking of calling it a day,” Vaughan told BBC Sport.However, Vaughan believes Cook is not certain to resign and said taking time to decide was the correct move.“He’s earned that right to have a period of time at home. We’ll wait and see,” the 42-year-old added.“He’s stubborn and mentally very tough. He’s been through this sort of spell two or three times in his captaincy and carried on.“But he has to be very honest with himself. Does he have the passion and energy to take the team forward through the seven Tests next summer? And then through the Ashes next winter?“If the answer is just 1% no, then he has to stand aside.“Towards the end of my captaincy, I just was not enjoying the game. I could see from his face he just is not enjoying cricket.“I would think it’s very close to being the time to call it quits from his perspective.”England assistant head coach Paul Farbrace said Cook had the support of players and management.“If he chooses to step down, that would be a shame because we want him to carry on,” said Farbrace.“When you lose a series 4-0, of course people will talk about the leadership. We all know that.“But there’s nobody looking around the dressing room thinking ‘ooh, I wonder who’s in charge?’ It’s very clear who’s in charge, and that hasn’t changed.”(BBC Sport)last_img read more
