The Dell XPS 15 has long been considered one of the best laptops on the planet, sporting a beautiful infinity-edge display and killer specs for professionals. Earlier this year, the company introduced a refreshed XPS 13 laptop, with Intel’s newest Kaby Lake chipset and Thunderbolt 3 connections. Though this laptop has remained insanely popular since launch, customers have been yearning for a refreshed slightly larger model ever since, and it seems like Dell has accidentally leaked some specs just a bit early, which include the new NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card.
The company has taken down the page since they realized their mistake, but a page has been cached so we can take a look at all the juicy new specs.
The laptop is said to have options for all three tiers of quad-core Kaby Lake CPU’s, (i3-7100HQ, i5-7300HQ or i7-7700HQ), and will sport a new 4K display that can show off 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut. Along with this, we’re getting up to 32GB of 2133MHz memory and up to 1TB of SSD storage, with a new Killer 1535 AC wireless card. There’s also going to be an optional fingerprint scanner on board, complete with Windows Hello support.
To top it all off, the new spec we’re all drooling over is the introduction of NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 graphics solution. The current model features a GTX 965m, which isn’t bad at all, but the GTX 1050 should absolutely fly by comparison. The chip is insanely low power, and can run games like Overwatch at 1080p ultra settings.
We’re expecting the company to continue using their huge 99 watt-hour batteries for this solution, meaning you should still get the same great battery life you were able to get on the previous models. With all these specs rolled up into one package, there is no doubt this may be the professional’s laptop to beat.
Are you interested in the XPS line? The infinity-edge displays are absolutely beautiful, and with any luck we will have one in hand in the coming months. If you want to check out the list of specs from the page that was taken down, you can find a cached version here.
