Dell has released its redesigned Precision Mobile Workstations, optimised for individuals and professionals.

The workstations are thinner and lighter, with updated graphics technology, new processors, memory and storage. They have also been certified for professional applications and support.

In terms of configuration options, this portfolio includes the new 6th Generation Intel Core processors, first Intel Xeon processors for mobile workstations and future Intel Xeon processors E3-1200 product families.

They also include professional graphics from AMD and NVIDIA for improved compute capacity and visual performance.

New screen options include the first PremierColor 4k Ultra HD displays with 100% minimum Adobe RGB color gamut. Full HD and UHD options on the InfinityEdge display gives a 15.6" viewing area.

This generation also features new elements of industrial design with carbon fibre and aluminum for thinner, lighter, yet durable exteriors.

For professional users, Dell has added certifications for various professional applications, hardware customisation so systems can be adapted to specific needs, and comprehensive support helps to help limit downtime.

The new systems are ISV-certified and come with Dell Precision Optimiser, now with SCCM integration, to improve performance of professional applications.

The new mobile workstations will support the latest USB technology, plus Thunderbolt 3, and new M.2 PCIe NVMe storage options for maximum throughput when managing large files.

The option of ProSupport Plus for PCs and tablets gives customers complete support service combining priority access to expert support, accidental damage repair, and proactive, predictive monitoring for automatic issue prevention and resolution. 

“We listened to our customers from media and entertainment, engineering, manufacturing, finance and beyond to deliver the highest performing systems for their critical workloads,” says Rahul Tikoo, Dell Precision director and general manager.

“This portfolio brings together industry-leading solutions combining great, new technologies from our hardware partners, seamless functionality with critical applications from our software partners, and amazing innovations from our Dell engineering teams to deliver powerful and beautifully-balanced mobile and fixed workstations to our customers,” Tikoo says.

The new Dell Precision workstations are expected to be available in Australia and New Zealand starting early Q4 2015.
