Dell unveiled a new workstation which can be shipped with Intel's latest X38 Express chipset.

“The Dell Precision T3400 redefines the levels of performance and flexibility customers should expect for mainstream workstations,” said Vivek Mohindra, vice president, Dell Product Group. “We are reinforcing our market leadership position by delivering leading-edge features such as dual graphics and higher bandwidth processors and memory that customers could not get in this type of system before.”

  • A single socket supports new Intel Core 2 Duo and Extreme processors for tangible performance benefits. These processors feature the new Intel Core microarchitecture with the Intel X38 Express chipset. This technology provides a shorter pipeline, lower clock speeds and higher (1,333MHz) front-side bus speeds to help deliver performance gains over comparable Intel Pentium D and Extreme Edition processors.2 The range of processors includes dual- and quad-core offerings and the capability to run both 32- and 64-bit operating systems.

  • Extensive memory and storage options. The Precision T3400 supports 800Mhz ECC memory from 1GB to 8GB. Customers can order the system with up to four3 hard drives and choose from a range of SATA and SAS options and RAID configurations.

  • Industry-leading workstation-class graphics options, from entry-level 2D to high-end 3D. For demanding 3D applications, the PrecisionT3400 is available with the latest NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600. The Precision T3400 also supports dual-graphics configurations and supports up to four external displays.

  • Smart chassis design. The compact chassis allows for both mini-tower and desktop orientations and features rotating optical drives that can be installed horizontally or vertically for optimal loading and functionality.
  • The base configuration starts at (US) $1,000.
