Dell Launches 4 Rockin New Precision Mobile Workstations with 8th Gen CPUs


We already dig Dell’s Precision line. They are portable laptops, full of hard-core machine specs, and now, even more so, due to brand new Intel Core mobile CPU processors (8th generation), as well as discrete graphics and faster memory than ever. Dell updated this line well, ensuring more security, seamless viewing, a lighter build, and an overall experience that businesses require. This means a consistent vibe of productivity, and access to the latest machine learning innovations (AR/VR), ensuring practices of all sorts have a seriously balanced PC.

The refreshed Dell Precision workstation portfolio includes four different models, and there is more to it than updates to hardware. Dell build these refreshed laptops with a lighter fit, a more squared-off physique, smaller hinges, and a slightly altered keyboard layout. Because Dell had the intention of an elevated workload potential in mind, let’s take a look at Dell’s four models. First are the Precision 7530 and the Precision 7730, which are among the two most qualified workstations we’ve seen in a long time. They are the core of the new lineup-both incredibly powerful and packed with tons of I/O. In fact, Dell proclaims the 7530 as the first 15-inch mobile workstation “ready for VR”; that’s because inside, lives the highly regarded Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU (2.90 GHz, 4.80 Turbo), alongside Nvidia’s GP104 Quadro P3200 graphics.

Both the Precision 7530 and Precision 7730 share the help of having 4 M.2 slots for SSDs, allowing up to 6TB of storage capacity. Additionally, the models have the option of up to 64GB of DDR4 memory; even up to 128GB of 3200 MHz ‘SuperSpeed’ memory. This is an incentive, because loads of RAM is helpful for any mobile workstation, especially in the business or creative sectors. With the exact same delicacies inside of its hard drive, the difference in the 7730 is it’s larger, 17-inch display. Both 7000-series models offer multiple display options, including up to an Ultra HD IPS LCD screen, made of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. Reviewers say these displays are better than ever, allowing the IGZO-panels to cover 100 percent of the AdobeRGB color gamut. This means a delivery of pretty darn seamless viewing, in any configuration you may choose (mentioned above is the highest), which is perfect for presentations, and an overall professional experience.

Next is the Precision 5530 2-in-1, a model that Dell claims as the “world’s smallest 15-inch 2-in-1 workstation”, allows for 360 degrees of freedom, meaning all of your favorite laptop positions. The 2-in-1 model features a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 to 3840 x 2160 multi-touch display (which, just as the 7000-series big brothers work with, means 100 percent coverage of AdobeRGB), uses Intel’s nicest- either the Core i5-8305G (2.80GHz, 3.80GHz Turbo), to Core i7-8706G CPU processors (3.10 GHz, 4.10 Turbo), and contains graphics from AMD’s Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL GPU. Storage and memory include up to 2TB of SSD, and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, respectively. Additionally, there are 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports, 2 USB-C 3.1 ports, and a charging port. of RAM. The 5530 will get its share of attention. This 2-in-1 Dell will work wonderfully for the business individual, and with the unified element of both Intel and AMD chips, this the machine for the gamer, or the professional endeavor.

So, to conclude, the 7000 series offers up the goods as being more of an industry powerhouse, in terms of having insane storage and memory inside of a mobile workstation, while the 5530 2-in-1 works in the direction of graphics creatives. Pricing for the 7000 series range from $1,119 to $1,159, while the 5530 2-in-1 begins at $1,450. As the most equipped machines for the most demanding of tasks, laptop workstations are always evolving. Declaring its position that of these Precision models, include “the world’s most secure commercial PC”, Dell is in a huge advancement stage, where the niche of the true ultrabook workstation meets the goals of better productivity, design, and security. This is a perfect fit for the diverse universe that is the workplace.

    I’m looking forward to when Parts People has the 7730 or 7530 new keyboard layouts available for resale. I want to try installing the new keyboard into my 2016 Dell Precision 7710. The new keyboard as shown in the Dell users guide manual appears to indicate all keyboard ribbon cables, screw holes and dimensions line up with my 7710 keyboard.

    The advantage of installing newer keyboard is that it has better layout for HOME and END (without having to use FN key).
