Dell Precision Tower Workstations featuring Intel® Xeon® 5600 Processors
In addition to introducing nine new Dell PowerEdge servers based on Intel Xeon 5600 series processors, the company is making available three new workstations in the coming weeks—the Dell Precision T7500, T5500 and T3500 models. Tailored and optimized for 3D design and animation, engineering, oil and gas exploration, scientific visualization and defense professionals who are seeking standards-based solutions that enable greater flexibility, improved performance and the ability to help their business thrive.
“Intel has focused on three key areas when developing our latest Xeon 5600 series processors—security, virtualization and energy efficient performance,” said Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Data Centre Group. “Dell has chosen to use the Xeon 5600 across its entire 2-socket portfolio, using unique-to-Intel features such as more cores and cache, and new security features, making these servers an ideal cornerstone for any enterprise, capable of meeting the computing demands of businesses of all sizes.”
“IT organizations are under increasing pressure to improve business productivity while prioritizing technology spend within decreasing budgets. Dell’s 11th generation Dell PowerEdge servers help customers spend more time on creating business value and less on planning, deploying and maintaining IT with customer inspired design and advanced systems management,” said Brad Anderson, senior vice president, Dell’s Business Product Group. “With massive performance gains from greater memory and processing power in our updated servers and built in reliability to minimize single points of failure, Dell is helping companies achieve better business results.”
