Mobile Nvidia Quadro T2000, RTX 3000, 4000, and 5000 to debut on the upcoming Dell Precision 7740
It's not just XPS and Alienware laptops that are getting all the love this week. Dell will be updating a few of its business-centric Precision laptops with new SKUs for even faster performance. The upcoming 17.3-inch Precision 7740 flagship, 15.6-inch Precision 7540 flagship, and mid-range 15.6-inch Precision 5540 will replace the existing Precision 7730, 7530, and 5530, respectively.
The updated models are most notable for their new Turing-based Quadro GPUs. The high-end Precision 7740 in particular can be configured with up to the Quadro RTX 5000 while the 7540 can go up to the RTX 3000. The mid-range 5530 can be configured with up to the Quadro T2000 which will lack the AI-accelerated capabilities of the faster Quadro RTX 3000, 4000, and 5000 GPUs. These options are set to succeed the Pascal-based Quadro P2000, P3000, P4000, and P5200 SKUs.
Outside of the above GPU updates, users can expect Intel 9th gen CPUs up to the unlocked Core i9-9980HK or the Xeon E-2286M to support up to 128 GB of ECC RAM.
The chassis of these new laptops are otherwise identical to the existing models save for an extra USB Type-C port on the new 7740. Thus, we recommend checking out our existing reviews on the Precision 7730, 7530, and 5530 for more information about the chassis and their features since they all apply here on the upcoming refresh.
The Precision 7740, 7540, and 5540 will each be available this July for a starting price of $1410, $1150, and $1340 USD, respectively. HP will be launching its refreshed ZBook with similar Quadro RTX GPUs at around the same time as well.
