Processor The following table lists the details of the processors supported by your Precision 3260 Compact.

NOTE: Global Standard Products (GSP) are a subset of Dells relationship products that are managed for availability and

synchronized transitions on a worldwide basis. They ensure that the same platform is available for purchase globally. This

allows customers to reduce the number of configurations managed on a worldwide basis, thereby reducing their costs. They

also enable companies to implement global IT standards by locking in specific product configurations worldwide.

Device Guard (DG) and Credential Guard (CG) are the new security features that are only available on Windows Enterprise today. Device Guard is a combination of enterprise-related hardware and software security features. When you configure them together, it locks a device down so that it can only run trusted applications. Credential Guard uses virtualization-based security to isolate secrets (credentials) so that only privileged system software can access them. Unauthorized access to these secrets can lead to credential theft attacks. Credential Guard prevents these attacks by protecting NT LAN Manager (NTLM) password hashes and Kerberos Ticket Granting Tickets.

NOTE: Processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor availability is subject to change and may vary by

region/country.

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks)

For optimal performance when configuring drives as a RAID volume, Dell recommends drive models that are identical.

Specifications of Precision 3260 Compact 17

NOTE: RAID is not supported on Intel Optane configurations.

RAID 0 (Striped, Performance) volumes benefit from higher performance when drives are matched because the data is split across multiple drives: any IO operations with block sizes larger than the stripe size will split the IO and become constrained by the slowest of the drives. For RAID 0 IO operations where block sizes are smaller than the stripe size, whichever drive the IO operation targets will determine the performance, which increases variability and results in inconsistent latencies. This variability is particularly pronounced for write operations and it can be problematic for applications that are latency sensitive. One such example of this is any application that performs thousands of random writes per second in very small block sizes.

RAID 1 (Mirrored, Data Protection) volumes benefit from higher performance when drives are matched because the data is mirrored across multiple drives: all IO operations must be performed identically to both drives, thus variations in drive performance when the models are different, results in the IO operations completing only as fast as the slowest drive. While this does not suffer the variable latency issue in small random IO operations as with RAID 0 across heterogeneous drives, the impact is nonetheless large because the higher performing drive becomes limited in all IO types. One of the worst examples of constrained performance here is when using unbuffered IO. To ensure writes are fully committed to non-volatile regions of the RAID volume, unbuffered IO bypasses cache (for example by using the Force Unit Access bit in the NVMe protocol) and the IO operation will not complete until all the drives in the RAID volume have completed the request to commit the data. This kind of IO operation completely negates any advantage of a higher performing drive in the volume.

Care must be taken to match not only the drive vendor, capacity, and class, but also the specific model. Drives from the same vendor, with the same capacity, and even within the same class, can have very different performance characteristics for certain types of IO operations. Thus, matching by model ensures that the RAID volumes is comprised of an homogeneous array of drives that will deliver all the benefits of a RAID volume without incurring the additional penalties when one or more drives in the volume are lower performing.

Precision 3260 Compact supports RAID with more than one hard drive configuration.
