Today, Dell announced a new range of workstations from its Precision 3000 series lineup, which is the entry-level line. These include the Precision 3430 tower, the 3630 tower, and the 3930 Rack. All of them are built to offer powerful performance in a smaller footprint.
Dell says that the Precision 3430 tower is 40% smaller than its competitors in an eight-liter body. You can have it configured with up to an eighth-gen Core i7 or Xeon E CPU, and up to Nvidia Quadro P1000 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics. With four Dimm slots, you can get up to 64GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory, and up to a 2TB Dell Precision Ultra-Speed SSD.
"The new Dell Precision entry-level workstations pack a lot of punch into a small footprint," said Bob Pette, Vice President of Professional Visualization at Nvidia. "Powerful NVIDIA Quadro GPUs deliver best-in-class performance and are a great fit for pro users who may have constraints due to their space or location."
The Precision 3630 comes in a 20-liter chassis, and it's 23% smaller than the Precision 3620. It also comes with Coffee Lake processors, up to a Xeon E. This one also comes with an option for a Core i7-8700K, which is unlocked for overclocking. Graphics go up to dual Nvidia Quadro P4000 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100.
And then there's the Precision 3930 Rack. This is built for expandability, supporting up to 24TB of storage. It also comes with Coffee Lake processors, up to Xeon E-2100. You can get it with up to Nvidia Quadro P6000 graphics. With its compact design, it's great for constrained spaces.
Dell also announced a refresh for its Precision 5820 tower, which is now offered with eighth-gen Intel Core processors. Previously, it was Xeon only.
The Precision 3430 is available today starting at $649, with the 3630 starting at $749. The Precision 3930 Rack will be available on July 26, starting at $899.
