Dell has announced that it will be upgrading its XPS 15 and XPS 17 ultraportables to Intel's new Raptor Lake-H processors. The H series is distinguished by offering superior performance, but at the cost, yes, of increased consumption.
The Dell XPS 15 and the XPS 17 will maintain the same design and finish as the previous generation. Both may have minor differences, but the fundamental theme of both will remain the same. At the CPU level, we will find a total of three different options:
- Intel Core i5-13500H: four high-performance cores and eight high-efficiency cores.
- Intel Core i7-13700H: six high-performance cores and eight high-efficiency cores.
- Intel Core i9-13900H: six high-performance cores and eight high-efficiency cores (it will have higher clock rates on its two core blocks).
The 15-inch model can be configured with screens IPS and OLED (traditional and touch) at a resolution of 3,840 x 2,400 pixels, and will offer different graphic options starting with an Intel Arc A370M and can be expanded to a GeForce RTX 4050 Mobile, GeForce RTX 4060 Mobile, and GeForce RTX 4070 Mobile.
Both Dell laptops will have dual-channel DDR5 4,800 MHz memory, PCIe Gen4 SSD drives, Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and a Thunderbolt 4 connector.
Both Dell XPS 1 and Dell XPS 17 will be available from March 2, although we do not know their official prices in Spain. In the United States, the Dell XPS 1 will cost $2,949 in its base configuration, while the Dell XPS 17 will cost $3,399. In euros, they are equivalent to 2,782 and 3,206 euros, and we would have to add VAT.
