Impressive new Dell hardware at CES!

Posted this on my blog a little while ago. Figured it would be of interest to all of you too.

AnandTech's Day 1 report from CES 2006 looks at some awesome new products that Dell just announced.

The first is the 30" UltraSharp 3007WFP display with a native resolution of 2560x1600. Launching at $2,199 and bound to go down soon enough ($300 less than the Apple display already), it also includes four USB 2.0 ports, a built-in card-reader, and HDCP support to view DRM-protected HD-DVD content in Windows Vista later this year.

If that wasn't impressive enough, the company is also launching the XPS 600 Renegade desktop, with a factory overclocked 4.26GHz dual-core Pentium EE 955, and two dual-GPU 512MB GeForce 7800 GTX cards, running in SLI mode, for a total of four GPUs and 2GB of video memory. Holy freakin' crap! Couple this beast with a 3007WFP (or two?), and you have the ultimate God-box. :D

Then there's the new Inspiron E1705, with a 17" widescreen display and Intel's 2.0GHz Core Duo processor. Pretty cool, but give me the Toshiba M400 any day of the week. I'm still waiting for Dell to launch its own Tablet PC. That will be the day.

Finally, there's Dell's Mobile Concept PC, which is an interesting portable desktop of sorts. It's essentially a dual core Media Center machine with the innards of a laptop and a 20" display that can be folded up and carried around. At 17 lbs, it's obviously not meant to replace laptops, but as Anand points out, the ability to transport it easily, while still having a nice 20" display, could make it quite appealing to university students. The downside is that even with the dual-core processor, it still lacks the power of a full-fledged desktop due to the integrated graphics chip and the slow, 2.5" notebook drives, so I'm not quite sure if something like this will really take off. Still, it's an interesting and very different kind of machine.

NVIDIA and Dell Showcase First-Ever Quad-SLI PC

NVIDIA and Dell unveiled the first-ever Quad-SLI PC at the Consumer Electronics Show 2006. Taking its acclaimed SLI technology to the next level, NVIDIA introduced support for not one, not two, not three, but FOUR GPUs. Delivering the most extreme high definition gaming experience available on the PC, Quad SLI features four of NVIDIA's flagship GeForce® 7800 GTX GPUs with an NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI motherboard.

Imagine tearing through today’s most advanced PC games with an unheard of 41 gigapixels per second of raw graphics performance, 5.2 teraflops of compute power, 96 pixel pipes, and an astounding 2 GB of on-board graphics memory. Nothing can stop you when you have this kind of hardware on your side.
My God 96 pixel pipes.:eek:
Rest of it here

Their software? You mean pre-loading machines with all those unnecessary apps?
Yeah :p. Its not hard to format and clear it out, but it just seems strange to make a gaming computer then junk it up with software.
