Aaron44126 Posted February 18, 2022 Share Posted February 18, 2022 Pleased to kick off an owner's thread for the Dell Precision M6700. Release date: July 24, 2012 Intel 3rd-gen CPUs ("Ivy Bridge") Up to 32GB DDR3 memory NVIDIA Kepler Quadro GPUs (K3000M, K4000M, K5000M) This machine is near and dear to my heart, serving as my personal daily driver for nearly a full decade. It is highly tinkerable! With a MXM GPU slot, you can fit in a Maxwell GPU like the Quadro M5000M or GeForce 980M with little trouble, bringing it forward a few years in terms of graphics performance. (Pascal and Turing GPUs are also feasible, but with more work required.) With an mSATA slot and the ability to install a 2.5" SATA drive in the optical drive bay, you can fit in up to four SATA SSDs. The system was released at the tail end of the Windows 7 era, but received a BIOS update adding support for Windows 8 features like UEFI seamless boot and UEFI secure boot. It still works great with Windows 10 today.
