• Dell Precision Performance Optimizer simplifies, automates and optimizes Dell Precision workstation settings to maximize application performance
  • Software can improve application performance by up to 57 percent¹
  • Application profiles available for Autodesk Maya, PTC Creo® andDassaultSolidWorks with other profiles available soon


MANILA, Philippines,Dell today announced Dell Precision Performance Optimizer (DPPO), the industry’s first software that automatically configures Dell Precision workstation settings to maximize performance of engineering, design and digital content creation applications.DPPO is preloaded with profiles for popular applications such as Autodesk Maya, PTC Creo and Dassault SolidWorks and once activated automatically adjusts system settingsto optimize performance. Additional features include proactive system maintenance and tracking and reporting of system utilization – helping Dell Precision customers enhance and speed up their design and render times.

Dell Precision Performance Optimizer is an extension of Dell’s existing workstation toolsdesigned to provide customers maximumperformance and dependabilityso they can remain focused on being creative. For example, as part of the Dell Precision Technology Program, Dell engineers work closely withtechnology partners to architect, design and test joint solutions providing customersassurance that their hardware is compatible and optimized for their software.Dell also develops andprovides recommended configurations for customers’ specific software and workflows through theDell Precision Workstation Advisor. Dell Precision Performance Optimizer is the next step in Dell serving as the trusted advisor to help customers maximize efficiency and productivity.

Dell Precision Performance Optimizeroffers three main features to enable comprehensive yet simplified system optimization and eliminate the guesswork from adjusting system settings:

  • Automatic Performance Optimization– DPPOcomes preloaded with predefined performance profiles for popular applications such as Autodesk Maya, PTC Creo and Dassault SolidWorks. Unlike other tools, once activated, the software automatically adjusts system configurations such as CPU, memory, storage, graphics and operating system settings whenever a supported application is launched. This allows workers to quickly improve workstation performance when switching between applications and projects, like moving from rich animation projects to detailed CAD design.Based on Dell testing and benchmarking, users can experience up to 57 percent increase in application performance¹with DPPO.
  • System Maintenance–IT professionals and users can gain greater control and knowledge oftheir system through automated or manualupdatesfor new drivers,BIOS, application software, firmware and other vital components. This helps ensure systems are running optimally and increases user productivity.
  • Tracking & Reporting–The application also includes advanced tools to analyze and model system utilization such as how much free memory is available, processor utilization, thermal sensor data,battery state and more.Detailed reportscan be scheduled to run and analyze system utilization at any time, even during intensive tasks like compiling code or rendering frames.

Pricing & Availability:

Dell Precision Performance Optimizer is free and ispre-installed on Dell Precision T1650, T3600, T5600, T7600, M4700 and M6700 workstations with Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit) and Windows 8 (64 bit) operating systems and available for download here. Application profiles are currently available in English for Autodesk Maya, PTC Creo,DassaultSolidWorks with Adobe® Premiere® Pro andAdobe After Effects®  and other profiles available soon. French and German languages will be available for download in the coming months with other languages available later this year.


“We’re excited to continue introducing innovative new solutionslike Dell Precision Performance Optimizer that empower our customers with uncompromising performance, dependability and design,” said Christopher Papa, country manager, Dell Philippines. “From hardware design to software enhancements, we are always looking for new and meaningful ways to make our workstation customers more productive.”

“Broadcast and video pros demand top performance and increased speed to optimally run Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. Customers will appreciate knowing that their system can be returned to peak performance for their application with the DPPO technology,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “If for some reason a customer’s system is altered or they run applications that require radically different set ups, this technology will help deliver optimal performance.”

“We work closely with Dell to make sure our software runs smoothly on Dell Precision Workstations, and we’re excited how today’s solution helps to further enhance our customer’s experience,” said Mark Strassman, vice president of Media and Entertainment Industry Strategy and Marketingat Autodesk. “As a result, Autodesk Maya users can create more engaging content faster using Dell Precision workstations.”

“PTC and Dell have a long history of delivering technology solutions that transform the way our customers create and service products,” said Brian Thompson, Vice President of PTC Creo Product Management at PTC. “We are excited about the potential for Dell Precision Performance Optimizer to deliver additional value for PTC Creo customers using Dell Precision workstations.”
