We’ve already seen updates to Dell’s high-end Alienware gaming PCs, and now it’s time for the company to pay some attention to its mainstream G-Series laptops and desktops. The company today announced the new G7 in both 15-inch and 17-inch flavors along with the G5 desktop. The G7 laptop family is available with one of three 10th generation Intel Comet Lake-H processors: the Core i5-10300H, Core i7-10750H, or the Core i9-10885H. Up to 32GB of DDR4-2933 memory can be installed, along with up to a 1TB PCIe SSD. A plethora of graphics options are available ranging from a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti to a GeForce RTX 2070 with Max-Q. Those GPUs can drive one of two Full HD display... Read more...
How many times are we going to spy leaked benchmarks for Intel's upcoming Tiger Lake processors? At least one more time, apparently. Once again, the unreleased Core i7-1165G7 has made a cameo in a benchmark database, this time by hitching a ride on an upgraded Dell Inspiron 7506 2-in-1 system that is also not yet available (as configured). It is actually a pair of benchmark leaks that give us yet another glimpse of the Core i7-1165G7, along with a Core i7-1135G7, both spotted by Twitter user APISAK. The first one comes by way of a UserBenchmark database entry. Have a look... Source: APISAK (Twitter) via UserBenchmark According to the benchmark entry, the Core i7-1165G7 is a 4-core/8-thread processor... Read more...
Dell’s premium XPS family of notebooks is growing, literally. The company recently announced the all-new XPS 17, and as the name implies, this new Dell laptop features a spacious – and gorgeous – 17-inch display. It also features the updated design language introduced with the company’s redesigned XPS 13 9380, and the new 2020 XPS 15 9500 carries that DNA as well. A 17-inch laptop may sound cumbersome to some folks that might travel a lot with their notebook. Fortunately, Dell did more than simply scale up the previous generation XPS 15. The new design language features a taller 16:10 aspect ratio and virtually eliminates the bottom bezel. As a result, the XPS 17 is less... Read more...
Recently, Dell introduced a new and impressive notebook to the market aimed at gamers, called the G5 15 SE. One of the key features of that gaming notebook is AMD's new SmartShift technology. Any AMD fans who are hoping that technology would land in other brands or models of laptops may be disappointed to hear that Dell has the exclusive on that technology until 2021. But what's so special about SmartShift? The AMD Ryzen 4000 family of processors were unveiled at CES 2020, and one of the more exciting technologies that the CPUs enable, when paired with an AMD Radeon GPU, is SmartShift. The technology pools the thermal and power budget for the GPU and CPU, and doles out those resources depending... Read more...
Dell’s XPS family of laptops is familiar territory for us here at HotHardware, as they have continually presented as premium products that offer some best mainstream laptop experiences in the market. The company recently unveiled a complete redesign of its XPS 15 and reintroduced the XPS 17, both of which now feature 16:10 displays maxing out at 3840x2400 with super thin InfinityEdge bezels on all four sides now, including the bottom. The result is a very form factor-efficient design that looks spectacular. Luckily, we have a brand-new XPS 17 in-house, and we’re giving it a thorough workout through our benchmark regimen. We’re not quite ready to give you our complete review... Read more...
AMD is in an enviable position in the gaming laptop world. Not only does the red team arguably produce some of the fastest mainstream mobile CPUs around in its Ryzen 4000 series, there's also formidable graphics horsepower in the same camp. As a result, AMD can control the whole platform, hardware and driver stack in a PC with its CPU, GPU, and accompanying chipset, if a manufacturer chooses to use those components. The first of these gaming laptops to hit the lab with an all-AMD bent comes from Dell. The G5 15 SE launches today with a feature set, performance target, and price point that makes for a very attractive solution for gamers on the go. Because of its single-vendor hardware configuration,... Read more...
Dell is getting down to business with its latest product refresh. Hot on the heels of Intel attaching its vPro platform to its 10th generation Core "Comet Lake" processors, Dell has come out new Latitude 9000 series business laptops and Precision 5000 mobile workstations that both offer vPro as an option, among other upgrades. Starting with the Latitude 9000 series, these are "ultra-premium" laptops and 2-in-1 devices featuring machined and brushed aluminum designs. Dell bills these as the "world's most intelligent business PCs with built-in AI," which is in reference to the Dell Optimizer utility. "Dell Optimizer uses built-in AI and Intel Adaptix technology to learn how you typically use your... Read more...
We’ve already covered Alienware’s new Area-51m R3 and m15/m17 R3 gaming laptop releases, and now it’s time to shift focus to their desktop sibling. We’re of course talking about the Aurora desktop, which is aimed squarely at the eSports market. Liquid cooling – for the processor – has long been a staple of Alienware desktops. However, the 2020 edition of the Aurora is bringing a first for company: liquid cooled graphics cards. The Aurora’s PCIe liquid cooling solution is available with its GeForce RTX 2080 graphics option, and promises a further 19.5 percent temperature decrease along with a 69.2 percent decrease in noise reduction compared...

Earlier this year, Dell gave its popular XPS 13 a full redesign with slimmer InfinityEdge display bezels, 10th Gen Intel Ice Lake processors and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. Since that launch, we've seen leaked images and specs for the XPS 15 and the return of the XPS 17. However today, Dell is getting official with these two new XPS family members that complete the line-up refresh. Starting off with the XPS 15, the specifications for this Dell laptop match the leaked specs that we've seen for the past month. That means that there's a 15.6-inch panel (16:10 aspect ratio) that is available in FHD+ (1920x1200) or 4K UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions. That panel is backed by either Intel... Read more...
Earlier this month, we got our first look at the 2020 editions of the XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptop, which will be featuring 10thgeneration Intel Core (Comet Lake-H) processors. Today, we’re learning much more information about the two laptops, which look to be two formidable competitors that bracket the current 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro in size. The XPS 15 features a 15.6-inch Infinity Edge display that can be had in either FHD+ (1920x1200) or UHD+ (3840x2400) resolutions (16:10 aspect ratio). Base systems get a Core i5-10400H (4 cores/8 threads, 4.5GHz boost), while flagship models are powered by the Core i9-10885H (8 cores/16 threads, 5.3GHz boost). You can opt for integrated Intel...

As tens of thousands of workers have been pushed out of the office and into remote working from home environments due to the coronavirus outbreak around the world, new types of challenges have surfaced that businesses are having to deal with. The big issue is that with so many new companies and workers now working from home, cybercriminals are out to take advantage of those who may not understand the security risks they face and how to take proper countermeasures. Dell reminds us today that with cybercriminals ramping up nefarious activity, organizations need to protect remote workers, starting with the devices they are working with. To help facilitate that protection, Dell has introduced Dell... Read more...
When we evaluated the late 2019 model of Dell's XPS 13, we thought a few small things kept that ultraportable from achieving complete perfection. That machine shipped with Intel's Comet Lake-U family of processors, which are plenty fast on the CPU side of things. However, they lack the graphics "oomph" of Intel's latest Iris Plus graphics, available in Ice Lake-based 10th-Gen processors. This (very slightly) older model also had a 1920x1080 display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, while the Ice Lake-equipped 2-in-1 model had a slightly higher resolution 1920x1200, 16:10 display. We felt like adding those two features to the already excellent XPS 13 would make the perfect ultraportable, but apparently... Read more...
Last week, Intel launched its new 10th generation Comet Lake-H mobile processors, which will find their way into new laptops from the likes of Lenovo, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASUS (among others). As you might expect, Dell will also be among the major OEMs to adopt Comet Lake-H processors, and today we’ve got leaked images of three such devices. The first is the XPS 15 9500, which is a complete redesign for the laptop. In the image above, the XPS 15 9500 is pictured at top, with its larger XPS 17 9700 sibling shown at the right -- the new Precision models are shown at the left and at the bottom. The most striking difference, however, is with the display, which is allegedly... Read more...
Apple iPhones and Macs go together like peanut butter and jelly, but Dell is looking to improve the experience of using an iPhone with a Windows PC. The company is achieving this with an update to its Dell Mobile Connect iOS app, which has now been bumped to Version 3.0.  Dell Mobile Connect for iOS has now gained screen sharing functionality, which was previously only available for users of the Android app. With this feature, whatever is currently displayed on your iPhone is mirrored on your Dell computer’s desktop. You can fully interact with the apps and navigate the UI using your computer's mouse and keyboard (or touch display), just as you would with your fingers if... Read more...
Dell is getting ready to launch new desktops built around Intel's 10th generation processors. Otherwise known as Comet Lake-S, Intel has not yet formally introduced any 10th generation CPUs on the desktop, but given the increased occurrence of types of leaks we have been seeing recently, it was safe to assume a launch was imminent. The new chips will find their way into Dell's XPS Tower and XPS Tower Special Edition desktops. Dell revealed as much in a new promotional video for its 2020 model XPS Tower systems, though did not into detail about the specific processors, only that they are 10 generation parts. Have a watch... "Create without limits using the all-new XPS Tower. Featuring powerful... Read more...
Dell's new OptiPlex 7070 Ultra desktop PC features a new innovative design approach that's sleeker and more useful than traditional small form factor machines, when integrating them with standard displays. Small form factor PCs, like the Intel NUC, Gigabyte BRIX and ZOTAC ZBOX, tend to include VESA mounts for easy attachment to the back of your monitor for a cleaner, all-in-one PC-like appearance while using a standard monitor. The flaw in that methodology is not all monitors have VESA mounting holes on the back and the ones that do tend to either have basic stands that have minimal adjustments or nicer swivel and height-adjustable options that attach to where the VESA holes are. This was a flaw... Read more...
So you slept through the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and now wish you could travel back in time? Forget the DeLorean—the price of plutonium is off the charts these days—because there are still bargains out there. Over at Dell, you can score discounts on several different gaming PCs, including Alienware-brand desktops and laptops. One of the deals I find especially intriguing is for a decked out Alienware Aurora gaming desktop for $1,564.99 (save $765 over list price). At the heart of this system is a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9700K processor (8-core/8-thread, 3.6GHz to 4.9GHz, 12MB L3 cache) paired with a brawny NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super graphics card. Those components... Read more...
The Alienware Concept UFO wasn't the only wild design on display from Dell this week at CES 2020. The company also let loose two additional concepts that are seemingly closer to being actual production devices than the admittedly cool Concept UFO. The two new entries are called the Concept Ori and Concept Duo, and the most intriguing is the former. Concept Ori looks similar in design to the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold that we told you about yesterday, and features a folding 13.3-inch QHD+ OLED display. The display is made of plastic and is one continuous piece that folds right in the middle. Concept Ori When folded, Concept Ori is highly portable, making it easier to fit into... Read more...
Handheld gaming is something that many of us take for granted these days, be it with portable console or a quick Fortnite session with our smartphones. So why couldn't we have that same experience with fully-fledged PC games, albeit with more powerful hardware under the hood than what's fueling your smartphone?. That's a question that the folks at Dell's Alienware division asked, and the result is the Concept UFO prototype, which looks like a chunkier version of the Nintendo Switch with a more premium aluminum-clad chassis. The Concept UFO consists of the main unit which contains the display, and two Joy-Con style controllers that attach on either side of the main unit with a magnetic rail system.... Read more...
Yesterday morning, we first brought you word of Dell's latest XPS 13 ultraportable, which has been completely redesigned for 2020. Dell has hit it out of the park this time around with a device that is smaller, thinner, and lighter while at the same time packing in a slightly larger 13.4-inch 16:10 display. Needless to say, we were eager to get our hands on the new laptop, and we've got video footage of the XPS 13 in its full glory embedded below: It's one thing to see the XPS 13 in renders, but the real-life footage gives you a good idea at how tiny the bezels are with the “Four-Sided” InfinityEdge display. Even with the extremely tiny bezels all around, Dell was still able... Read more...
Earlier this morning, Dell announced its all-new XPS 13 ultraportable, but that's not all that the company has to offer. It has also pulled the wraps off the brand-new Latitude 9510 family, which is a business-class 15-inch notebook/2-in-1 that is powered by Intel 10th generation Core processors. With the Latitude 9510, Dell has further trimmed the bezels, giving users fewer visual distractions to the vibrant 15-inch InfinityEdge display. Since the Latitude 9510 is available in traditional laptop and 2-in-1 configurations, there are two display options presented to customers. The former gets a 15-inch FHD anti-glare panel, while the latter features a 15-inch FHD touch display covered... Read more...
Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor (AW2521HF) The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is just around the corner and many companies have already hinted at the kinds of products that consumers can expect this year. Dell just announced several monitors that cover everything from their Alienware to their UltraSharp line. Gamers will be particularly interested in the new Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor (AW2521HF). It features a 240Hz refresh rate, 1ms response times, IPS technology, and AMD Radeon FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility. The monitor has a sleek and slim design and even includes height markers for more versatility. It will be available on March 11th, 2020 for $499.99 USD. Dell also plans to release... Read more...
