DELL WORKSTATIONS OFFER TECHNOLOGY FROM SILICON GRAPHICS.
Dell Computer Corporation (NASDAQ:DELL), a direct computer systems company, is offering the all-digital Silicon Graphics 1600SW 17.3-inch flat-panel monitor as an option for Dell Precision WorkStation customers. Available from the Dell Precision WorkStation Web site at http://www.dell.com/products/workstat/, the Silicon Graphics 1600SW digital flat-panel monitor offers state-of-the-art screen resolution, color quality and fast pixel response to generate smooth, artifact-free video and animation. The monitor's SuperWide format, similar to High-Definition Television (HDTV), provides a 16:10 aspect ratio and 1600x1024 resolution, capable of displaying two full pages of information simultaneously. "The extraordinary digital display technology offered by Silicon Graphics complements the award-winning design and performance of Dell Precision WorkStations," said Jeff Clarke, vice president, Dell Precision WorkStations. "We believe customers will also find the price/performance ratio of Dell systems to be more compelling than that offered by other vendors." The 1600SW flat-panel monitor is powered by the Revolution IV-FP, a 32MB graphics accelerator from Number Nine Visual Technology Corporation. Number Nine's graphics card uses a dual graphics pipeline and dedicated digital path from the graphics card to the display, delivering superior image quality and consistency for smooth video-conferencing, full-screen MPEG video, professional applications or game development. Combining a large viewing format and ultra-high resolution, the Silicon Graphics 1600SW flat-panel monitor provides resolutions at 110 dots-per-inch (dpi), more than most high-end flat-panel monitors, which typically provide less than 90 dpi. This difference is best seen in the fine quality of images, where even the smallest details are cleanly viewed and jagged edges are minimized. Prices for Dell Precision WorkStations configured with the digital Silicon Graphics 1600SW flat-panel monitor start at $4,222.
