Dell XPS 15 Overview

Dell XPS 15 (Kaby Lake) lineup received much recognition in the last two years, and we mostly agree with actual reviews out there, but if you go for the 15-inch version, you should consider a good number of tricks. If you read our review of previous technology XPS 15 with UHD screen, you’d remember that the particular nature of the (CPU and GPU) combined with extra slim profile raised some issues about the stability and the effectiveness of the cooling system and thus, stored us from giving an excellent score. We were also frustrated by the audio quality, battery life, and loud fan operations.

But even if the this year’s Dell XPS 15 views just about the same, you are incorrect. Preparing totally new under the cover, The above is required to generate just as much heat, we need the cooling system to be able to support the Core i7-7700HQ CPU and GTX 1050 GPU, but we expect some serious temperature drops in our checks from the GTX 1050. Also, we would like to review the Full HD version of the notebook this time and value how this affects battery life compared to the UHD version from last year and see if it’s any good for multimedia and sensitive work.

Every other model came with a quad-core 2.6GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ (with Turbo Advancing up to 3.5GHz) and 16GB DDR4 memory. Here, the main variation between the spare models is storage space. There was a 1TB hard disk + 32GB SSD option ($2,074.99 at a time of writing), All 4 models came with Nvidia GeForce 960M graphics that has 2GB of GDDR5 and a 1TB PCIe SSD ($2,574.99) version, a 512GB PCIe SSD model ($2,074.99).
