A week ago, we were able to give you a quick look at the performance of Intel's new 10th generation Core processors based on the 10nm process node. These processors have been a long time coming, as Intel has been overly reliant on its 14nm process node as it worked to overcome engineering challenges at 10nm. Now, one of the first machines packing these new Ice Lake-based processors is available to purchase, and it comes from Dell. The XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) was first announced back at Computex, and represents a huge step up in performance compared to its predecessor.  Base systems come with the Core i3-1005G1, which is a dual-core, quad-thread processor with a base clock...

It's finally here folks, the first crop of devices rocking Intel's 10nm Ice Lake-U processors have been announced. And one of the first OEMs out of the gate is Dell, which is launching the XPS 13 7300 Series 2-in-1 convertible. The latest XPS 13 2-in-1 is available with one of three new 10th generation Core processor options: Intel Core i3-1005 G1 processor (8MB cache, up to 3.4GHz) Intel Quad Core i5-1035 G1 processor (6MB cache, up to 3.7GHz) Intel Quad Core i7-1065 G7 processor (4MB cache, up to 3.9GHz) According to Dell, these processors are rated at 15W and are up to 2.5 times more powerful than the previous generation machine. The uses of these new cooler-running processors... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 family has always been highly regarded for performance-value and solid build quality, and now the company is upping the value quotient with a new lower-end SKU. Priced at a low $899, this is the lowest entry point yet for an XPS 13 equipped with an 8th generation Core processor. That price gets you a Core i3-8130U processor paired with 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and a 13.3-inch 1080p Infinity Edge display. Although the $899 price point is a new low for an 8th generation Core SKU, an XPS 13 with a Core i3-7100U can be had for just $799, while the next step up is a Core i5-8520U configuration for $949.99 with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. In addition to the XPS 13 SKU, Dell has... Read more...
Dell's XPS 13 and 15 line of notebooks have done well for the company, sparked by a reinvention of the product line back in 2015. Since then, its design signature has reached iconic status for Round Rock, with the ultra-thin bezel of its Infinity Edge display and hatched carbon fiber composite palm rest and keyboard area earning the series many awards, including our Editor's Choice on multiple occasions. And as you might expect, Dell has continued to evolve its well-received XPS product offerings, not only as new notebook platform architectures roll out, but the company is also now looking to capitalize on its the XPS design signature with new machine types, cut from the same cloth. Dell... Read more...
Intel has been gradually rolling out its 7th generation Kaby Lake-based Core series processors for an array of computing platforms, from desktops to notebooks and 2-in-1 hybrid devices. We've shown you what Kaby Lake can do for enthusiast and gamer desktop platforms. We've even recently explored optimizing its price/performance ratio through overclocking, and of course, Kaby Lake notebooks led Intel's charge starting in the summer of last year.What we haven't gotten a chance to look at yet is Intel's lowest powered Kaby Lake variant, known as Kaby Lake-Y. Kaby Lake-Y is the the 4.5 - 7 Watt family of processors intended for thin and light, fanless 2-in-1 devices. Fortunately, since... Read more...
