Dell’s new Precision mobile workstations are smaller and more powerful

Precision family

Today, Dell is announcing its new Precision mobile workstations, from the 3000 series to the 7000 series. In fact, the company says that this is the biggest update to the lineup since it first introduced the brand in 2013.

The laptops that stand out in the image above are actually the ones from the middle of the Precision lineup, the 15-inch 5550 and 17-inch 5750. They have the same chassis as the XPS 15 and XPS 17 that was announced last week, with four-sided InfinityEdge screens. Those displays are 16:10, and come in FHD+ and UHD+ flavors

Naturally, they come with Intel’s 10th-generation 45W ‘Comet Lake H’ processors, and while the Precision 5550 comes with up to an Nvidia Quadro T2000 with 4GB GDDR6, the 5750 actually comes with Quadro RTX 3000 graphics with 6GB GDDR6.

Precision 7750

The Precision 7550 and 7750 are completely different beasts. If you’re looking for a mobile workstation that has the most power that you can possibly get, this is it. They also have 45W CPUs with up to a Core i9 or Xeon W, but these can come with up to an Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 with 16GB GDDR6.

While they don’t have the XPS look, they’ve also been redesigned. Dell says that they’re 20% smaller and 6% lighter than their predecessors.

Finally, there’s a new Precision 3550 and 3551, which is at the entry-level and meant to be more affordable. The 3550 actually comes with a 15W U-series processor, while the 3551 comes with a 45W H-series processor up to a Core i9 or Xeon W. Graphics are limited to an Nvidia Quadro P620 with 4GB GDDR5.

The Precision 3550 and 3551 are available today, starting at $1,049 and $939. The Precision 5550 and 5750 are coming on May 28 and June 9, respectively, and will start at $1,999 and $2,399. Finally, the Precision 7550 and 7750 will both be available on May 28, starting at $1,709 and $1,999, respectively.
