  • 1.  Is ESXi compatible with Dell Precision Workstation?

    Posted Feb 04, 2023 12:37 PM

    I want to buy Dell Precision T7810 Workstation to run ESXi on it but I am not sure if it is fully compatible.

    I was not able to find it in the https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php

    However, I was able to find that the CPU are compatible with it - Intel Xeon E5-2660 V4.

    Other specs:
    64GB - DDR4 2400MHz (PC4-19200LR, 4Rx4) - 2x

    - 1TB - NVMe SSD

     

    Is the CPU compatibility the only one I need to look at or which other factors should be taken into consideration?

    Not exactly the same but I am running 7.03 on a 5810 with E5-1650 V3 and it runs OK. I do get warnings that the CPU will not be supported in the future, have to specify no warnings during updates. Probably won't run Version 8, haven't tried. I am using a 2 port NIC and an old Nvidia video card, both with passthrough.
