The Dell Precision 490 is a fully-featured high-performance workstation with a compact, flexible chassis design. With excellent scalability for its size, the 490 offers up to
two Dual-Core Intel Xeon 64-bit processors, up to 32GB of memory in four fully-buffered DIMM channels and a wide range of high-performance OpenGL graphics
cards. This all means that the Dell Precision 490 is an excellent choice for critical, compute-intensive workstation environments where space is a concern.
The Dell Precision 490 is equipped with up to two Dual or Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5100 and 5300 series 64-bit processors for a total of up to eight execution cores in
two sockets. Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors can deliver a substantial performance increase over Intel single-core processors for multi-threaded applications, multi-
tasking environments or very demanding single-threaded applications
