The Dell Precision M6500 is also the first mobile workstation to offer the new NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M graphics solution featuring:

  • 128 NVIDIA CUDA parallel computing cores;
  • Optimization for OpenGL 3.2 / Shader Model 4.0 / DirectX 10.1 / Direct Compute / OpenCL professional applications;
  • A 256-bit memory interface;
  • 1GB G-DDR3 graphics memory;
  • Ultra-fast 64 GB/sec graphics bandwidth; and,
  • NVIDIA’s PowerMizer 9.0 power management solution.

Other graphics options include the NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M and the ATI FireProM7740.

The Dell Precision M6500 offers compatibility and optimized performance on 95 key applications from leading Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) such as Adobe, Schlumberger and Dassault Systèmes.

Compatibility for Ease of Use and Deployment

The M6500, as a part of the Dell E-Family product line, is compatible with E-Family accessories, including port replicators, notebook stands, display and monitor stands, and external storage modules. In addition, the M6500 comes with optional security features including Dell ControlVault security, FIPS fingerprint reader and a contactless smart card reader, delivering very comprehensive security options.
