The Precision 5480 is a 14-inch workstation with options for QHD+ and FHD+ 16:10 60 Hz 4-sided InfinityEdge displays, with active pen support included on the QHD+ model. Both display options are rated to cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut and have a maximum brightness of 500 nits.
Dell offers a variety of Core i5-13500H, Core i5-13600H, Core i7-13700H, Core i7-13800H, and Core i9-13900H Intel 13th generation Raptor Lake-H vPro options.
Intel began segmenting vPro functionality based on necessary security features starting with the Alder Lake generation. Consequently, vPro Essentials are available with the Core i5-13500H and Core i7-13700H, whereas vPro Enterprise features are available with the other CPU options.
The Precision 5480 offers the same Nvidia RTX A1000 Ampere GPU with 6 GB GDDR6 Memory as the Precision 5470. Moreover, customers have the option of the 8 GB GDDR6-equipped RTX 2000 Ada or RTX A3000 Ada.
The Precision 5480 has passed MIL-STD 810H durability testing and has received ISV certification for workstation software. In place of USB Type-A ports, four Thunderbolt 4 ports with Power Delivery and DisplayPort-out are used instead.
Additional features include a carbon fiber palmrest, an Infrared camera and fingerprint scanner for biometric logins, Dell Optimizer, Intel AX211 Wi-Fi 6E with Bluetooth 5.2 and optional NFC connectivity, and a carbon fiber palmrest.
Beginning on April 20, the Dell Precision 5480 mobile workstation will be accessible. Pricing will be made available later.

The Precision 5680, according to Dell, has the smallest footprint of any 16-inch workstation. Many of the features of the Precision 5680 are similar to those of the Precision 5480, but the larger chassis makes it possible to use a more potent GPU, a UHD+ screen, and a bigger battery.
