Designed with you in mind, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors give you the performance you've always wanted, for everything you do.

Up your creative game: The GeForce® GTX 1660 Ti is built with the breakthrough graphics performance of the award-winning NVIDIA Turing™ architecture.

Finish important tasks faster: Watch all your advanced applications perform at blazing speed with features including memory of up to 64GB DDR4 (16GB x4) at 2933MHz.

Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughput speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer AX1650i is nearly 3 times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2x2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system for fast, smooth online experiences.

Intelligently and purposefully designed

Keep your cool: All of the decisions made through the design process for the desktop were made purposefully to maximize performance and airflow. Starting with the use a front bezel which allows the airflow path to draw cool air from front to back over graphics cards and CPU, the power supply unit and the M.2 SSD storage. Finally, the open architecture layout means nothing is sitting on top of the CPU and GPU, limiting airflow.

Regulated cooling: Our engineers designed this system to include voltage regulator cooling with select processors to ensure system optimal performance by maintaining adequate airflow over the VR components. They also selected an optimal location for the placement of the M.2 SSD to maximize performance and rigorous, proprietary testing ensures that all system components are kept cool, even under the most intensive loads.

Designed to stay quiet: The XPS Desktop was designed to blend into your environment, whether that be a family room, office or kitchen, you can be assured your desktop will stay quiet, even when it’s performing at its highest. The desktop uses high RPM fans, with a maximum system fan speed of 4500 rpm to more efficiently cool. Fans can run slower, therefore at lower acoustics.

Prepared for your future needs

Endlessly expandable: When it comes to work or passion projects the more memory your system has, the better. Enjoy plenty of storage with capacity for one 3.5" HDD plus two 2.5" NB drives plus one internal optical drive.

Your command center: Connect all your devices in a snap with 10 total USB ports, including four front facing ports for easy access.

Easy to access: The optimized size of the desktop required an innovative approach to maintaining tool-less access to the internal components. Once the side is removed you gain easy access to the chassis, so you can expand and upgrade seamlessly.
