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.

    Unless they changed it from the previous three generations all you need to do is remove about 10 screws on the bottom and the whole bottom plate comes off, then there are maybe 8 screws holding the battery in place. Once those are removed it comes right out. Reply

    Still over an inch of wasted space below the screen. Please, Dell put a 16:10 screen in there! Reply

    i9-9900k is almost twice faster than i7 7700K if turbo off (45W), its real score are in turbo & 90W (3 times speed of i7 7700K according to cinebench r 15). Stress mode only a bit faster than it at 200W)...
    This is fast.....
    Intel didn't lose in speed war, & I can claim if you saw such claims, it will be false...
    But in power consumption, it disappoints you IN REAL WORLD..... Not many need such speed, most people need less pricey less power hungry laptops.. I wish Qualcomm brings it.... I wait to hear more about SD 8cx..

    Thanks!

    Sketchy, scammy Killer networking AND insta-throttle overclocking?! That's like two pointless, on-paper features crammed into the same overpriced mobile chassis! Where do I sign up to get raked across the coals by Dell to own this gemstone of a system? Reply

    Wow I pleasantly surprised Dell was able to keep the base model at $1k. Also I have not seen many laptops with three display options which means these must be selling well. At least as well as the amount of comments on this article would indicate. Regardless if I did not need a Mac laptop the XPS 15 would be my goto system. As long as they get a few of the random kinks out that pop up every few year models. Reply

    Why did they remove the numpad?

    Why remove the numpad on a premium product, especially with that much area on each side of the keyboard?

    I always found numpads somewhat awkward to use on a laptop, though I would have liked at least the del/ins/pos1 etc. to the right like for example Clevo does. Reply

    Is this the one with the soldered ssd that can not be upgraded by the user? Reply
