Dell Precision Tower 7810 Workstation Performance:

The dual 2.2 GHz Xeon Processors with 55 MB of cache have 22 cores each with 44 threads each — that’s a total of 44 cores and 88 threads. That’s some processing power. Each processor retails on the street for $4,115, so $8,230 of this computer comes from these two processors. If you’re building your own 7810 and need to cut some cost, a single processor should do well. This setup might be a bit of overkill unless you are doing some high-resolution spherical video stitching.

The video card, also called the GPU or graphics processing unit, will dictate how quickly and efficiently many processes within your editing program run. As equipped, this machine has the NVIDIA Quadro M4000. M indicates that it has the Maxwell GPU architecture rather than the older K, or Kepler, GPU architecture. The M4000 has  8GB of GDDR5 GPU memory and will compute APIs like CUDA, DirectCompute and OpenCL R5. It has a max power consumption 120 watts.

One nice thing about building your own 7810 with Dell is that they won’t let you build your computer with an insufficient amount of power, but in general, you should always pay attention to the power consumption of your hardware so you have the right power supply. The video card is a place where we suggest spending as much as you can handle. The biggest change in performance for video production will come from your GPU.

Conclusion:

The Dell Precision Tower 7810 is all about customization and power. The 7810 is aimed at engineering and manufacturing with the ability to run graphics-rich application, and with the addition of Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software these application can be accessed and ran remotely from anywhere in the world. Though companies and user have a wide choice, the dell precision t7810 drivers can have a maximum 128GB (8x16GB) 2133MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC of memory and up to 12TB (3 x 4TB) of internal storage, though this is the highest HDD storage and there are a variety of other choices, including several SSD configurations. In order to further improve performance, Dell equips their Precision Tower line with Optimizer 2.0 that automates system settings for maximum performance and optional Intel CAS-W software solutions that enable I/O speeds close to SSD configurations.

Looking at performance, the dell precision tower 7810 specs not only held its own in against a strong productions hybrid storage array in our SQL Server OLTP testing protocol, but the 7810 came out with more transactions per second was well as over fives times lower latency. For developers this means locally they can spin new queries at a faster pace that what would generally be seen on their production storage environment. For the rest of our testing we compared the 7810 PCIe SSD against the HP Z620 with its PCIe offering as well as other 3rd party flash offerings. The 7810 PCIe SSD performed very well in our synthetic workload tests coming out on top in our sequential 2MB transfer, random 4k aligned write and read tests. The 7810 PCIe SSD also performed well in our synthetic benchmark tests running near the top of the pack in all four tests. In some areas the Dell Precision Tower 7810  enterprise PCIe SSD didn’t offer as much low-end punch as consumer SATA or PCIe offerings, but that trade-off is more than welcomed for the very heavy transactional and I/O performance it was able to dish out Dell Precision Tower 7810 Workstation.
