Dell Precision Workstations become 20! Happy Birthday!

Since 1997 Dell Precision workstations have provided the foundation for bringing creativity into real life. Out of there many popular creatures from the movies were built – amongst them some spectacular Dragons you may recognize.

“Looking back at 20 years of Dell Precision workstations, you get a sense of how the capabilities of our workstations, combined with certified and optimized software and the creativity of our awesome customers, have achieved incredible things,” says Rahul Tikoo, vice president and general manager for Dell Precision workstations. “As great as those achievements are, a new lineup of Dell Precision workstations enables our customers to be ready for the next big technology revolution that is challenging business models and disrupting industries.”

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Dell Precision workstations, Dell ads a new line of products to the Dell Precision fixed workstation portfolio: a special anniversary edition of its Dell Precision 5520 mobile workstation and the official availability of Dell Canvas, the new workspace device for digital creation.

To see what you can do with Dell workstations you might want to watch the famous HBO series “Game of Thrones”.

Letting Drogon grow

In fact, Daenerys Targaryen’s beautiful Dragon-Babies are created on Dell Precision workstations. The workload for the Dell products is massive. Creating Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal is incredibly complex because even creating the skin, scales and veins is a never ending-changing process as dragons are growing. “It’s sheer amount of detail. When the dragon met Jon Snow, we had to get very close to the dragon. This amount of detail make the work more complex”, says Sven Martin, VFX supervisor at Pixomondo.


Dell Precision workstations push your ideas with maximum scalability and performance. Built with a new FlexBay design that supports a range of modules, you can customize each tower to your requirements, from audio editing to creating new worlds for virtual reality. Plus, each workstation is complete with the Dell Precision Optimizer—software that runs the most popular ISV applications at the fastest speeds possible, all in an elegant UI.
