Dell Precision T5810 Workstation
Dell Precision T5810 Workstation Review
The Precision T5810 is an impressive and very usable system that delivers the performance needed by design and engineering professionals on a budget.
Following the release of Intel’s Haswell-based Xeons, Dell has acted quickly to adopt the new processor and use it to put extra spring into the step of its popular Precision workstation family. Dual and single-socket workstations will both benefit from the makeover and for this review we checked out the Precision T5810, a single-socket workstation that sits at the more affordable end of the spectrum.
Following the standard workstation pattern, the T5810 is housed in a substantial yet compact black and silver tower which, thanks to a couple of design flourishes, manages to somehow look pretty stylish. Power comes from an externally removable 685W AC supply which has two fans built in for cooling with, on the review system, another built onto the video card. The end result was far from silent, but we’d still put it down at the quiet end of the scale for this type of system.

Designed to be customised, access is provided via a lift-off side panel with plenty of room to get to all the important bits and pieces. And that includes an all-new motherboard sporting a single socket for the Haswell-based Intel Xeon processor plus, of course, the latest C612 chipset required to manage it.
