Dell launches entry-level workstation for creatives

Dell Precision T3400 pitched at 3D artists

Dell today launched the Dell Precision T3400, a workstation for 3D artists and other creative professionals.

The Dell Precision T3400 is based around a single processor socket, and supports new Intel Core 2 Duo and Extreme processors. These processors feature the new Intel Core microarchitecture with the Intel X38 Express chipset. This 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, according to Dell

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

For demanding 3D applications, Dell recommends outfitting the Dell Precision T3400 with nVidia's Quadro FX 4600. The Dell Precision T3400 also supports dual graphics configurations and supports up to four external displays.

The Dell Precision T3400's 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 Dell Precision T3400 costs from £579 plus VAT.
