Dell has introduced its first all-in-one PC based on AMD Ryzen microprocessor. The new Inspiron 27 7000-series expands options for those seeking for a system featuring AMD’s latest CPU and is also among the first computers from a top PC OEM to feature Ryzen. Dell will offer multiple configurations of the new Inspiron 27 7775-series computers, some of which will feature a 4K display, an eight-core CPU and 32 GB of memory. Meanwhile, entry-level Inspiron 27 7775-series starts at $999.99.

AIO PCs are gaining traction for many reasons these days; space-saving, style, prices and ease-of-deployment are among them. As with any growing product category, we see segmentation into numerous directions: some systems are getting more sophisticated, the others are getting more affordable and everything in the middle is getting very diverse. With its Inspiron 27 7775-series Dell is targeting two different segments: performance mainstream and premium. This is actually an uneasy thing to do in case of an all-in-one system. The former segment demands maximum value (so, customers are still somewhat price-conscious), the latter segment demands maximum performance, which comes at a price and high-TDP. Creating an AIO platform that could fit a variety of components and appeal to different kinds of audiences is a challenge and it appears that Dell has succeeded in cracking it.

The Dell Inspiron 27 7775 offers two CPU/GPU/PSU options targeted at different kinds of customers. The quad-core AMD Ryzen 5 1400 is accompanied by the AMD Radeon RX 560 with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 180 W PSU. Meanwhile at the high-end there is the considerably more powerful eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 1700 paired with AMD's Radeon RX 580 with 8 GB of GDDR5 and a 330 W PSU (this one is going to carry Dell's "VR Ready" badge). Keep in mind that there will be different configurations available across the world, so you might see different combinations of CPU and GPU rather than the "base" configs mentioned above (still, the higher-end GPU requires a more powerful PSU). Dell does not explicitly disclose whether the Ryzen 5/Radeon RX 560-based AIOs come with an FHD display - whereas the Ryzen 7/Radeon RX 580 SKU features a 4K screen -  but from an end-user point of view it is logical to get a higher-performance PC with a higher-res monitor.

When it comes to DRAM and storage options, everything gets a little trickier. Dell offers a variety of memory configs, including dual-channel 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB options as well as single-channel 8 GB, 12 GB and 16 GB options. As for storage, Dell has affordable models with a 1 TB HDD (with either 5400 or 7200 RPM spindle speed) as well as more advanced dual-drive solutions featuring a 256 GB PCIe/NVMe SSD plus a 1 TB HDD.

Next up is connectivity. The Dell Inspiron 27 7775-series offers 2x2/1x1 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a GbE port, one USB 3.1 Type-C connector, one USB 3.1 Type-A port, three USB 3.0 Type-A headers, two USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI output, one HDMI input, one DisplayPort 1.2, an SD/MMC card reader, a 720p webcam with an IR sensor for facial recognition, a microphone array and so forth. Finally, the systems feature a front-shooting stereo audio sub-system co-tuned with Waves MaxxAudio Pro.

    Lost me at 4k and 1080p. If this was 1600p, maybe we have a deal. For that matter, I'm putting off ANY monitor purchase until I can get a 16:10 with gsync or freesync (gen2 I guess, gen1 isn't worth free). If forced I guess I'll have to drop the last part as 16:10 is available, just not gsync/freesync yet.

    I don't want either res offered here on a 27in. 4K gaming is pointless for me if I have to turn crap off (any res, I want it all on always). AMD just did their vega demo at 4k with 2 vega cards (even they know 1 card is still stupid for 4k). It's comic review sites (including anandtech) and even AMD talk like 4k is actually what we use...LOL. IE Ryzen reviews, "what testing 1080p? You're doing it wrong, our chips are for 4K where the gpu is tapped out and our cpu scores better in gaming...future-proofing man...Our cpu could win...SOME DAY"...ROFL. Whatever AMD, I suppose it was smart aiming at workstation/server first where big margins are. I guess I have to wait until rev2 for the gaming version.

    As for the resolutions here, Until market share crosses 10% (much like devs support of a console after 10mil units shipped, or mac games) of the market, you're pretty much wasting time benchmarking it, or worse ignoring win7 while testing the latest stuff since 50% of the world is still using it. As someone else asked, why not 1440p (and even that would be pushing it in many games)? This is about like buying a 4k tablet or phone or my dad's 10in nexus at 1200p (useless for games, and microscopic print...LOL). Not sure why people keep building things that kill much of the idea before the product gets out of the box. You're not going to watch 4k content (60in+ 4k is cheaper than one of these) or game at 4k really, and not exactly sure I'd like 4K anything on less than 30in for pc. Things just get too small IMHO or require monkeying with settings constantly depending on what you're doing. VR ready...LOL. Why not offer the better card/psu with the 1080p monitor also? At least that one could game for real then. Couldn't this thing really use some freesync help?

    Looks great, but I don't buy things for that usually. Functionality first, looks if I can afford them. :)

    I wonder if the hard drive will be easily user accessible.

    Dell's usually good with that, though not on some lower end all in ones I've seen from them.

    Nice unit for an all in one though. Good CPU and GPU, and it's great to see AMD get some love...and in their higher end unit! This is much better than the Intel based all in ones from Dell/HP I've seen.

    Any word on GPU clock speeds? Is it the same as the desktop AIB model? Reply
