CES 2017 | Dell announces Precision 7720 with Pascal Quadro GPUs
One of the biggest gaps in products since the launches of Kaby Lake and Pascal were the workstations. Now that quad-core Kaby Lake Xeon processors have been announced, it's expected that Nvidia will reveal the Pascal PxxxM Quadro GPUs very soon for workstations.
Major manufacturers like HP and Lenovo have yet to update the ZBook and ThinkPad P/W series, respectively, due to the lack of any new Quadro announcements as of late. Dell, however, looks to be the first out the door with a mobile workstation sporting both Kaby Lake and Pascal. Called the Precision 7720, the workstation refresh was leaked earlier this week and this one in particular will be the successor to the Precision 7710. Since Nvidia has yet to officially reveal the Pascal Quadro series, however, Dell has not specified the exact Quadro model options in the new refresh. The new SKU will also come with AMD options likely at a lower starting price.
Dell will launch the new Precision 7720 this February 28th meaning that Nvidia is expected to make the next generation Quadro series official sometime before then.
The Alienware and Inspiron series are also being updated with Pascal GPUs this year.
