Yes, workstations are designed to withstand large workloads and deliver great performance at all times. Dell knows it and has just updated its Precision family, with which they seek to attack important segments such as the scientific, health care, military, content creation and, of course, artificial intelligence.
Given this, with the new Dell Precision 7000 series is precisely intended to offer equipment with the latest components, as the case of the new Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 family, introduced last week, with which we will be before workstations up to 56 cores and 112 threads. Some true beasts.
As we know, the new Intel Xeon micros are based on ‘Cascade Lake-SP’ architecture and the Dell Precision 7000 will be the first workstations to use them.
The new Dell workstations will be divided into two: the Precision 7820 that will be available in desktop tower format; while the Precision 7920 will arrive in tower format or ready to be mounted in a rack (2U).
Both models will have scalable component design and, for example, will be able to carry up to two Xeon Platinum 9200 processors. The Precision 7920 will have a capacity of up to three NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPUs and there will be an option to choose GPUs based on GV100.
Dell Precision 7000
As for the rest of the specifications, Dell mentions that we will have up to 3 TB of DDR4 DRAM, up to 16 TB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage , that is, several M.2 and / or U.2 units, depending on the configuration. Up to 120 TB of hard drive storage, which will be possible thanks to a capacity of up to ten SATA 3.5-inch HDD. In fact, the Dell Precision 7000 will be the first manufacturer to be compatible with 12 TB hard drives.
According to Dell, to maintain performance and avoid overheating, workstations have a special cooling system called “intelligent multi-channel thermal design” , which is based on the same chassis of the machines, which would allow “cooling and advanced acoustics “.
During the next month of May, Dell will announce the configurations and prices that these Precision workstations will have. Prices that are calculated in tens of thousands of dollars.
