Dell Precision M3800 workstation gets some new options
Calling all graphics designers, engineers, and video editors: Dell has made available new configurations and hardware for the popular 15.6-inch Precision M3800 mobile workstation. In addition to more storage options alongside the already high-capacity internal 2 TB drive, the model can now be configured with IGZO panels from Sharp.
The UltraSharp touch panel with Gorilla Glass NBT is particularly impressive. The aforementioned IGZO Sharp panel boasts a whopping 3840 x 2160 pixels and should offer very deep colors with high backlight brightness. At over 8 million pixels, this panel uses almost twice the pixels as the Retina display on the MacBook Pro 15.
The workstation can also be equipped with a Thunderbolt 2 port for transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbits/s. According to Dell, users can view and edit RAW file formats in UHD while simultaneously backing up the same file. High-resolution displays and high-performance RAID setups are also supported.
[UPDATE 10/07/2015] Post from Dell:
The current Precision M3800 already carries a Thunderbolt interface. Instead, the newer model has removed one USB port on the left edge and one Mini-DisplayPort as the latter is already supported through the Thunderbolt port. The images below show the ports of the newer model.
