Dell XPS 15 is getting Intel’s new chip and a 1050 Ti GPU

Intel’s new high-end laptop processors aren’t just for people who like to aesthetically identify as gamers. Dell is cramming the new six-core H-series CPU into a mild refresh of its popular XPS 15 form factor. The entry-level model starts at $999 with integrated graphics and the Core i5-8300H CPU, but you can scale all the way up to a Core i9 processor, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics (the last generation maxed out at 1050), and 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.

Like with the existing XPS 15 models, you get a 56WHr battery in the low-end, but a 97WHr battery comes standard on the higher-end models. Dell claims you can get up to 21.5 hours of battery on one of these laptops, which is not bad for a 15-inch laptop with a 4K screen.

The form factor is basically unchanged from previous models, so there’s still that weird webcam placement, but PCWorld points out that the Thunderbolt 3 port has increased to four PCIe lanes instead of two, so that’s a nice little tweak.

Preorders for the XPS 15 9570 will be available on April 16th.
