Dell has released a brand new line of XPS Desktop PCs, complete with a fresh new look and upgraded processors.
The manufacturer says the new PCs have been designed from the ground up to bring the XPS Desktop range in line with the sleek XPS laptops that were released earlier this year.
Dell has also announced plans to release all-new S-series monitors in August, with 4K, UHD and IPS-type variants giving desktop users more display options this summer.
New XPS Desktops
Available for purchase now in US and Canada, the new XPS Desktops have been given a more “minimalist and modern” design inspired by the latest XPS laptops that were revealed in May, according to Dell.
With Mineral White or Night Sky (black) versions to pick from, the new XPS Desktop features a more compact design than the previous generation – 19L in volume versus 24L.
The chassis features tool-less entry and more modularity allowing for easy upgrades via its four storage bays and three expansion slots. A 500W power supply is included.
Of course, the new models get refreshed processors, including 10th Gen Intel Core processors (up to the Core i9) and faster graphics up to an Nvidia RTX 2070 Super, making these the most powerful XPS Desktops yet.
Cooling is helped along by a voltage regulator that balances performance with power, and high RPM fans that force out through large vents on the front and rear.
Dell says these new desktops have been built to support everything from gaming and VR to intense productivity and creative production.
Dell tags certain configurations of the XPS Desktop with a ‘Creator Edition’ badge, “designed for hobbyist content creators” like photographers or graphics designers, with the help of Nvidia’s RTX Studio Program and drivers for enhanced performance and reliability. Pricing starts at $649.99.
To bring its desktop offerings in line with the new XPS PCs, Dell is also releasing a new line of redesigned S-series monitors.
With a clean design in Platinum Silver and set for release on August 20, the new monitors will come in three variants; a 32-inch model and two 27-inch versions.
At $499.99, the 32-inch Dell 32 Curved 4K Monitor (S3221QS) sports dual 5w speakers built in, seemingly aimed at premium media consumption and office use with its ultra HD resolution and subtly curved display.
Meanwhile, the 27-inch Dell 27 Monitor (S2721DS) and its 4K sibling, the Dell 27 4K Monitor (S2721QS), will be equipped with IPS-type displays better suited to professionals in need of greater image quality and color accuracy. Those will be priced at $349.99 and $449.99 respectively.
Arctic White XPS 15 Laptop
In addition to today’s news, Dell has also announced an arctic white version of the XPS 15 will be released this summer – the first color variant ever offered in the XPS laptop line.
