Dell has just announced that their updated line of professional mobile workstations M6700 with Intel Ivy Bridge processors and Nvidia Quadro K5000M professional graphics with 4GB GDDR 5 video memory will have an optional 17.3-inch Full HD 3D display for use with the Nvidia 3D Vision Pro active shutter glasses using RF technology. The starting price point for a 3D-capable Dell Precision M6700 mobile workstation is around $4400 USD and that is with the base specifications that you can configure the system with. There is also an optional more affordable version of the Precision M6700 based around AMD FirePro M6000 professional graphics, but it does not come with an option for a stereoscopic 3D-capable display, though you can still use a compatible external 3D monitor with it.
“Our new family of mobile workstations offer uncompromising performance, dependability and design,” said Kirk Schell, vice president of Computing Products, Dell. “We are continuing to build on our heritage of developing innovative workstation technology by offering the first NVIDIA 3D Vision Pro solution, Gen 3 graphics and 1866MHz memory in a mainstream mobile workstation, enabling our customers to bring their creative and design work to life fast regardless of their location.”
Dell targets the 3D-capable Precision M6700 mobile workstations at professionals working with CAD/CAM/CAE, DCC, seismic visualization, life sciences and other professional applications giving supporting stereoscopic 3D visualizations in order to improve the usefulness of the application and deliver better results and increase productivity. The fact that Dell turns more attention to stereoscopic 3D features and support in their professional line of mobile computers simply means that there is more demand for such from professionals working with stereoscopic 3D content.
