Dell Launches XPS 15 7590: Up to 5 GHz and Overclockable, 15.6-Inch OLED
Dell has introduced its new flagship XPS 15.6-inch laptop aimed at performance-demanding users such as gamers and prosumers. The new XPS 15 7590 machine can be equipped with an eight-core Intel processor, a performance mainstream discrete GPU, as a well as an optional 15.6-inch OLED monitor.
The new Dell XPS 15 comes in the same anodized aluminum chassis with a carbon figer palmrest (featuring an 11 – 17 mm z-height) as its predecessors, but its internals were upgraded quite significantly. The new notebook is based on Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors and can be equipped with the eight-core Core i9-9980HK (up to 5 GHz, 16 MB cache) with which can be overclocked because of unlocked multiplier. The CPU can be accompanied by up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 memory, up to 2 TB of NVMe/PCIe storage, and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 graphics processor.
On the display side of things, the XPS 15 7590 offers three InfinityEdge 15.6-inch panels with thin bezels: a Full-HD (1920×1080), an IPS Ultra-HD (3840×2160) with 100% AdobeRGB color gamut and touch support, as well as an OLED Ultra-HD non-touch option covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color range.
When it comes to I/O, the XPS 15 7590 laptop has Rivet Networks’ Killer AX1650 802.11ax 2×2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 controller (based on Intel’s silicon), one Thunderbolt 3/USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 connectors, an HDMI output, a 720p webcam, speakers, microphones, an SD card slot, a 3.5-mm audio jack for headsets, and so on. Since we are talking about a notebook that could potentially be used like a workstation in appropriate environments, Dell also integrated a Windows Hello-compliant fingerprint reader into the power button (select SKUs only).
Just like predecessors, the new Dell XPS 15 7590 comes with a 56 Wh or a 97 Wh integrated battery that cannot be replaced by the owner. A model with a lower-capacity battery weighs 1.8 kilograms, whereas a model with a higher-capacity battery weighs 2 kilograms.
Dell says that the new XPS 15 7590 will be available shortly starting at $999.99 for a quad-core Full-HD SKU as well as $1,899.99 for a version with an OLED display.
