Dell beefs up Precision workstations with new processors and NVIDIA Quadro graphics

Dell's Precision mobile workstation lineup is getting a boost today with its latest refresh. The commercial PCs are now smaller and lighter while offering up more power in the form of Intel's latest processors and NVIDIA graphics.

At the top of the line are the Dell Precision 7730 and 7530. Both workstations include Intel's 8th Gen Core and Xeon processors, along with AMD Radeon WX and NVIDIA Quadro graphics options. The 17-inch 7730, in particular, includes support for up to a Core i9 processor, along with up to 64GB of RAM, and Quadro P52000 graphics. The 7530 comes in at a smaller 15-inch screen with up to 64GB of RAM and NVIDIA P3200 graphics.

Where Dell is shaking things up is with the new Precision 5530 2-in-1, which packs plenty of power into a convertible frame. Pegged by Dell as the "world's smallest 15-inch 2-in-1 mobile workstation," the Precision 5530 2-in-1 includes a 36-degree hinge, touch and pen support, and a 4K display. That's backed up by Intel's 8th Gen Core i7 processors, Radeon Pro WX Vega M GL graphics, and up to 32GB of RAM.

On the low end are the standard Precision 5530 and Precision 3530. The 5530 is a 15-inch device with a 4K display option, up to an Intel Core i9 processor, NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics, and up to 32GB of RAM. The 15-inch 3530, on the other hand, allows for up to an Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and NVIDIA Quadro P600 graphics.

Dell OptiPlex

While the Precision workstations may be getting the lion's share of attention, Dell has also introduced a new family of OptiPlex All-in-One (AIO) PCs. The new lineup includes up to 32GB of RAM, Intel's 8th Gen Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, and up to NVIDIA GTX 1050 discrete graphics (depending on model). The new OptiPlex PCs also include a pop-up webcam along with infrared camera options with Windows Hello support. The AIO options are also bolstered by new OptiPlex towers with similar 8th Gen Intel processors and up to 64GB of RAM.

Lastly, Dell's Latitude 5491 and 5591 now include smaller chassis, with a footprint that has shrunk by 30 percent over the past three generations. With up to 19 hours of battery life, the Latitude lineup can be equipped with Intel's 8th Gen i5 and i7 processors, up to 32GB of RAM, and NVIDIA graphics options.


Dell's Precision 3530, 5530, 7530, and 7730 will be available on May 22 starting at $1,049, $1,459, $1119, and $1,519, respectively. The OptiPlex AIOs and towers will be available on May 22 as well, starting at $869 and $499, respectively. Lastly, Dell's refreshed Latitude 5491 and 5591 will be available on May 22 starting at $899 and $999. There's currently no pricing or availability available for the Precision 5530 2-in-1, but Dell promises information will be "coming soon."
