ROUND ROCK, Texas -- May 16, 2013

Dell today announced an expanded and stronger Dell Precision workstation
portfolio that includes the smallest tower workstation chassis in its class,
the Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor, and the world’s most powerful rack
workstation, the Dell Precision R7610. In addition, the Dell Precision family
features a more powerful and reliable Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower rounding
out a workstation portfolio that offers increased performance, dependability
and smart design for entry-level and high-end workstation users.

Industry’s Smallest Entry-Level Tower Workstations

Offering powerful workstation performance at near desktop PC prices, the new
Dell Precision T1700 small form-factor (SFF) is the smallest, approximately 30
percent smaller than competitive systems, and lightest¹ workstation in its
class allowing IT to easily deploy an Independent Software Vendor (ISV)
certified workstation almost anywhere, regardless of space constraints. The
T1700 SFF and the Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower (MT) are designed and
certified for engineering, architecture and finance professionals. The
workstations also are ideal for higher education and high-school students
working with 2D, entry-level 3D simulation or multitasking with demanding

Both the T1700 SFF and T1700 MT offer next generation Intel workstation-class
processors, NVIDIA and AMD professional-grade graphics with PCIx x16 Gen 3
slots and expanded ISV certifications to help accomplish more in less time.
The T1700 SFF is the only entry-level workstation to offer two front USB 3.0
ports to help move data faster and enable easy connectivity to external media
and accessories.

And for crystal clear high definition resolution, Dell recommends dual Dell
UltraSharp U2312HM displays and the Dell Dual Monitor Stand MDS14 to maximize
viewing real-estate and productivity for T1700 workstations.

New Rack Workstation Offers Ultimate Performance and Dependability for Remote
& Virtualized Environments

Dell, the industry leader in rack workstations¹, is announcing updates to its
rack workstation including significantly more power, an enhanced remote
experience and new virtualization capabilities for engineers, designers and
other professional users who demand the best. The new Dell Precision R7610 now
packs the power of Dell’s flagship T7600 tower workstation in an intelligently
designed 2U rack form-factor that’s ideal for datacenters or OEM embedded
solutions. The Dell Precision R7610 enables customers to centralize, secure
and manage data, leverage their worldwide talent pool, and share resources for
improved cost effectiveness.

Organizations using the R7610 rack workstation can improve ROI through
increased access and better utilization of their assets as a single
workstation can be used by four users without sacrificing performance. The new
R7610 achieves this via GPU pass-through and certifications with Citrix
XenServer® 6.1.0 using Citrix XenDesktop® HDX™ 3D Pro, which allows all the
resources of a dedicated discrete graphics card to be uniquely shared with
multiple users in a hosted-shared environment or made available to a single
user or virtual machine in a virtualized environment. The R7610 can support up
to four single wide graphics cards such as the NVIDIA Quadro K2000 and AMD
FirePro™ W5000 mainstream cards, and high-performance NVIDIA Quadro K4000
cards, or up to three double-wide NVIDIA Quadro K5000 cards. Expanded
capabilities, including NVIDIA GRID with virtualized graphics, will be
available later this year.

Among other options, users can connect to the R7610 1:1 via Teradici® Tera2
PCoIP from Dell Wyse P25 zero client, paired with dual Dell UltraSharp U2413
displays with PremierColor and the Dell Dual Monitor Stand MDS14.
Alternatively, customers can remotely connect through other Dell and non-Dell
computing devices including thin clients, laptops, desktops or other mobile
devices with Citrix Receiver™.

Further increasing Dell’s industry-leading reliability, the R7610 now comes
with the exclusive Reliable Memory Technology, a Dell patented code programmed
at the BIOS level that eliminates virtually all memory errors and therefore
the need for extensive full memory tests, IT support calls and memory DIMM
replacement. The R7610 also is designed, tested and certified for a broad
selection of applications for confident, reliable performance. In addition,
the memory has been expanded to four channels with up to 256GB² in 16 DIMM
slots, with future availability of 512GB², an integrated 6 GB/s LSI2308
SATA/SAS controller and available dual Intel E5-2687W 150 watt 8 core

Pricing & Availability:

The Dell Precision R7610 rack workstation will be available on May 21 starting
at $2,179 and the Dell Precision T1700 Mini-Tower and Small Form-Factor are
available on June 4 worldwide^³. Pricing for both T1700 workstations will be
released on June 4.
