The Dell Precision T3400 redefines the levels of performance and flexibility customers should expect for mainstream workstations

    "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."

Dell Precision has been the world's top-selling line of professional workstations for the past eight years.(1) Dell simplifies its workstation line by designing and certifying its platforms with more than 27 independent software vendors, supporting 63 different applications and services. This gives professional workstation customers true "peace of mind" when running high performance applications in fields that include engineering, digital content creation, scientific, finance and software development.

Key features of the Dell Precision T3400 include:

-- A single socket supports new Intel(R)Core(TM)2 Duo and Extreme processors for tangible performance benefits. These processors feature the new Intel(R)Core(TM) 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(R)Pentium(R)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 four(3) 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.

Available now globally, a base configuration starts at (US) $1,000. For more information on the Dell Precision T3400, visit
