Dell Precision 3420 Overview

  • 1Description

Built to deliver professional performance, the Precision 3420 Small Form Factor Workstation from Dell is a fully configurable and ISV-certified system. This system is powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor, which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 4GB, there are four 288-pin DIMM memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using one 16GB module in each of the four memory slots.

For storage of your files, a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drive offers quick access to your data. If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Precision 3420 features six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports (2 front, 4 rear), four USB 2.0 Type-A ports (2 front, 2 rear), two PS/2 ports, and a serial port. For users who wish to add additional components or upgrade the drive bays, there is one M.2 2280 slot, a PCIe Gen 3 x16 slot, and a PCIe Gen 3 x4 slot. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 530 chipset delivers a sharp, clear picture while allowing for multiple simultaneous displays to be used via its two DisplayPort and single HDMI video outputs. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC3234 audio codec outputs high-definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.

The Precision 3420 Small Form Factor Workstation includes Dell's KB216 USB keyboard, MS116 USB mouse, and a power cord. It operates using a 240W 85% efficient power supply. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Pro (64-bit).

Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit)

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
Windows 10 Pro
The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for business users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.
