One key thing he notes is they have upped the power in a smaller design and are now offering a: “Pretty powerful work station in a small form factor,” he told us.
Jennifer Huffstetler, GM of Datacentre Product Marketing at Intel Corporation commented in the announcement that: “The combination of the Dell Precision 3930 Rack with the Intel Xeon E processor is bringing new levels of performance in a small form factor to data and graphics intensive fields.”
Rahul Tikoo, General Manager of Dell Precision added that “power is becoming table stakes and the conversation is accelerating to immersive workflows utilising even smaller footprints… “
Packed with Graphics
Speaking to Computer Business Review Mike Guinan told us that: “the inclusion of Radeon Pro graphics and NVIDIA’s Quadro GPUs make it the ideal entry level station for those working in media.”
However, while he does note that these entry level work stations are good for those beginning to work with AR and VR applications, they may not be suited for heavy VR computational work.
“I don’t think it probably would be, I think you probably need a bit more of a powerful processor”
“However for those that are looking at beginning to start work with VR, because of that graphics capability you can certainty start using this as suitable device for that,” he added.
