Dell announces new, budget-friendly solutions with the latest Dell Precision 3540 and 3541 mobile workstations. Targeting those looking for workstation-class performance in a small footprint, the Dell Precision 3540 mobile workstation is what the company says is its “most affordable mobile workstation.” It comes with the latest 4-core Intel Core 8th-generation processors, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, AMD Radeon Pro graphics with 2GB of dedicated memory and 2TB of storage.
The new Dell Precision 3541 mobile workstation will offer more power, with 9th generation 8-core Intel Core and 6-core Intel Xeon processor options. It’ll be available with next-generation NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics with 4GB of dedicated memory. As with the Precision 3540, the Precision 3541 comes with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and optional features to enhance security such as fingerprint and smartcard readers, an IR camera and a first for Dell, a camera shutter.
It features a streamlined design with a narrow-edge 15.6” display that provides ample viewing space for CAD applications. It is 10% smaller and lighter than the previous generation, the Dell Precision 3540 weighs in at 4.04 lbs. and the Dell Precision 3541 starts 4.34 lbs.
Both devices are Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certified, having undergone testing with professional applications like Autodesk Inventor and Dassault Systemes SolidWorks. Dell Precision Optimizer software also automatically tailors the system’s settings.
The Dell Precision 3540 is available now, starting at $799, while the Precision 3541 will be available in late May.
