Dell introduces new ‘Skylake’ entry-level desktop workstations
Entry-level desktop workstations, the Dell Precision Tower 3620 are based on the new Intel Skylake processors (Core i3, i5, i7, and Xeon E3-1200 v5), feature up to 64GB RAM, support new generation M.2 PCIe SSDs and offer optional Thunderbolt 2.
In addition to size, there appear to be other notable improvements over the Precision T1700 SFF – specifically in terms of graphics and storage.
Graphics: The Dell Precision Tower 3620 offers a bigger choice of GPUs up to a Nvidia Quadro M4000 or AMD FirePro W7100.
Storage Options: With up to 2 x 3.5-inch or 4 x 2.5-inch drives in addition to its optional on-board M.2 PCIe SSD.
Dell is also releasing version 3.0 of its Dell Precision Optimizer (DPO) software, which is used for automated performance tuning, utilisation monitoring and system updates.
The standout feature is a new System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM), which gives administrators centralised management capabilities to deploy and configure Dell Precision Optimizer on multiple machines. Dell says analytics can be gathered from a group of users to create performance, reliability and usage reports to assess, plan, and address resource needs
