DELL’s intense day of announcements saw metaphorically taking the stage, to bask in the performance light of the new 12th generation Intel (with what follows as Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt 4) even the renewed Precision mobile workstations
After showing off the renewed notebooks of the Latitude range, the American brand DELL proceeded to the second phase of its spring announcements at the end of March / early April, moving to the Precision range, also in this case with attention to new functions and sustainability.
The Intel Core 12th gen mobile vPro processors of the H and P series also make artificial intelligence available to security, in the Precision 3570 and 3571, Precision 5470, 5570 and 5770 mobile workstations, also appreciable in terms of autonomy, and screens for color rendering and resolution. The small Dell Precision 3570 (22.15 for 1.59 Kg) and 3571 (25.7mm for 1.79 Kg) share the 15.6-inch screens: the first model focuses more on autonomy, while the second, from the use of the Intel 12th gen H series , betrays focusing more on performance.
Among the common denominators are screens that reach 4K with 100% coverage on the sRGB color gamut, surmounted by FullHD webcam with infrared and AI sensor for proximity. In the internal data sheet, the 3570 model opts for the U and P series of Intel’s 12th gen U / P (with the highlight in the Core i7-1280P), with max 64 GB RAM but DDR4, while the 3571 allows itself to be Alder Lake the H series up to the Core i9, with a 45W TDP and a DDR5 4800 RAM here again up to 64 GB.
SSD storage doesn’t compliment it, hitting peaks of 2 TB (in M.2 PCIe 4.0). For graphics, the choice fell on the A series of the Nvidia RTX which, in the case of the A2000, can show off 8 GB of reserved memory): the danger of heat accumulation is averted by an advanced system for thermal dissipation. Remaining in the multimedia section, the Waves MaxxAudio Pro optimizations enter the scene. On the expandability side, the array of input – output interfaces is very respectable, with the combo jack for audio, and a sequence of RJ45, USB Type -A 3.2, HDMI 2.0 and Thunderbolt 4 while, for connectivity, there is the top with Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6e and the option for 4G LTE. Of note, in terms of autonomy, being able to rely on ExpressCharge / Express Charge Boost fast charging.
The 14 “Precision 5470, 15” Precision 5570 and 17 “Precision 5770 models are candidates to be the most powerful mobile workstations in their category: the progenitor of the trio, the Dell Precision 5470, has a thin (19 mm thick ) and lightweight (1.48 kg) frame with a QHD + screen with 100% sRGB, 500 nits, stylus and touch support, narrow bezels (Infinity Edge), topped by an IR FullHD camera. In contrast, efficient typing is used on the comfortable Pro 2.5 keyboard, with the user getting comfortable on the always cool carbon fiber palm rests.
Also here is the fingerprint reader and, for audio, a central subwoofer together with two side speakers, in the name of an audio that also counts on an array of microphones. On the performance side, the Intel 12a processors go up to the Core i9-12900HK, with the graphics that can remain the integrated Iris Xe, or opt for the dedicated RTX A1000 Laptop from Nvidia with 4 GB reserved.
The RAM (DDR5) reaches up to 64 GB and the SSD storage (PCI-E 4.0) up to 2 TB. As a result of these choices, the Thunderbolt 4 connector and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity are stationed via Type-C, with many other specifications borrowed from the 3000 series: the Precision 5000 series of workstations can reach, as batteries, up to 72 WHr.
One step below, here are the 5570 and 5770 models of the DELL Precision workstations. Suitable for graphics lovers (given the color gamut AdobeRGB at 100% and DCI-P3 at 99%) the 5570 deploys a display with 16:10 ratio, WVA PremierColor, capable of up to a UHD +, with touch option, well readable outdoors (contrast at 1600: 1 and 500 nits of brightness). The logic section has no compromises, with the Core i9-12900HK flanked by Nvidia’s RTX A2000 graphics card while the memories arrive at a 64 GB DDR5 RAM and a 4th gen PCIe SSD storage up to 4 TB.
The energy here is stored in 86 WHr of battery. In the almost twin 5770, a sort of older brother of half a kg heavier, from the top of its 2.56 kg, there is a 17 “display: the machine body, including the new PCI-E 4.0 for SSD up to 8 TB, keeps the roaring engine of the new processors at bay, which offer options up to a 14-core i9 with Nvidia’s dedicated RTX A3000 GPU equipped with 12 GB reserved, with an obviously advanced dissipation system. On the other hand, there is support for Thunderbolt 4 in 4 Type-C even with Power Delivery and Display Port. In this case, the laptop that can replace Windows (10 or 11) with Linux (Ubuntu and RedHat), integrates a battery that rises to 97WHr.
