Dell Precision Workstation 530

Sep, 2002

Product Specifications

The new Dell Precision 530 is a highly scalable workstation designed to deliver optimum performance for demanding workstation applications. Capitalizing on the next-generation Intel Xeon processor and i860 chipset technologies, the Dell Precision 530 also continues the Dell commitment to strong application support on its workstations. If you are working with CPU and graphics-intensive applications such as MCAD, AEC, GIS, EDA, electronic publishing and digital content creation, the Dell Precision 530 offers an incredibly rich feature set with excellent price/performance and high levels of service and support. With support for dual Intel Xeon processors, users get to experience new levels of performance rarely seen in a workstation of its price or class. The Xeon processor features Intel's ultra high performance NetBurst architecture for outstanding performance in processor-intensive applications such as financial analysis and CAE. The Dell Precision 530's graphics architecture is based around proven technologies such as AGP Pro 110 4X, delivering exceptional bandwidth to support a variety of current and future high-end graphics card options whatever the required application. For computer intensive applications, the Dell Precision 530 delivers outstanding performance from its dual-processor core. Dual-channel memory architecture and a 400MHz system bus complement the processors with the latest relevant workstation technologies to ensure applications benefit from a balanced system. The Dell Precision 530 boasts an all-new Mini Tower chassis designed specifically to address the thermal and acoustic challenges presented by high-performance workstation systems. With Dell's QuietCase and noise damping technologies, acoustic levels are minimized. The chassis also provides tool-less access to internal components and toolless removal of peripherals from the drive bays, making upgrades and maintenance quick and easy. The Dell Precision 530 provides the same manageability features as the OptiPlex line of corporate desktop PCs making integration and management of a complete environment less complex. Using Dell OpenManage IT Assistant and standards-based systems management software, the system and network management capabilities provide a fitting match to the performance of the Dell Precision 530.
