Unprecedented performance and innovation

Unprecedented performance and innovation

Bigger and better: Now sporting a larger chassis than before—27L vs 19L—the new XPS Desktop packs more power than ever. The bigger chassis gives creativity room to grow, with peak performance today, infinite expandability tomorrow.

Peak performance: Take a revolutionary leap into real-world hybrid performance with an innovative design that distributes processing power to where you need it most. Streaming, browsing, video editing and more—up to 12th Gen Intel® Core™ i9k processors give the boost you need for your biggest breakthroughs.

World-class NVIDIA® GPUs: The XPS Desktop is available with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs, up to the RTX™ 3090. These GPUs are powered by NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture, delivering the ultimate performance, ray-traced graphics, and AI acceleration for gamers and creators.

Elite AMD GPUs: You can equip your new XPS Desktop with up to AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT 16GB GDDR6 graphics cards. These powerful GPUs can help you dive into 4K gaming and elevate content to new levels of fidelity, thanks to a blend of raytracing and rasterizing effects.

Next-level memory: DDR5 memory boasts up to 50% faster clock speed than DDR4 memoryi, while supporting capacities up to 128GB and speeds up to 4400MHz. This means you can expect better overall performance, especially when managing large creative content or gaming with friends.

Smoother experiences: Killer™ Networking and Wi-Fi 6 combine to bring you Intel® Killer™ Wi-Fi 6 AX1675, which can detect, classify and prioritise system traffic, delivering up to 75% less latency than competing 2x2 Wi-Fi productsi—for a smooth, premium online experience.

Thermals that power your creativity

Purposeful design: Down to even the smallest details, the XPS Desktop was designed for thermal efficiency and runs cooler than the previous generationi desktop. Cool air enters through a specially designed front bezel, moving front to back—over the graphics, power supply and M.2 SSD storage, without ever being recirculated.

Improved airflow: Engineered with an open layout, the new XPS Desktop is built without anything sitting on top of the CPU/GPU, to avoid limiting airflow. This enables the desktop to remain cooler, compared to its predecessor.

Quiet efficiency: The XPS Desktop delivers peak performance with the help of high-RPM fans. While these fans have max speeds of 5000 RPM, they can also run slower, therefore at lower acoustics, for a quieter machine—one that blends into any environment.

Optional liquid cooling: Liquid cooling is the superior way to cool a CPU—as water transfers heat with more efficiency and less noise than air. The magic happens via a self-contained water loop, without depending on high-RPM fans. The XPS Desktop with liquid cooling is cooler and quieter under load than the 125W thermal solution.i
Thermals that power your creativity
Creation without limits

Creation without limits

Creator Edition: XPS configurations badged with Creator Edition have been carefully selected for those wishing to cultivate their content creation skills—be it photography, graphic design, music production or beyond.

Minimum recommended configuration: i5 processors, 16GB, 512GB, (discrete graphics are recommended for music production or graphic design).

Fast-track your creativity: If you’re looking to do your best work, NVIDIA® GPUs can make it happen—fast. Render quicker. Broadcast clearer. Edit videos better. From raytracing and VR to AI-powered 8K video editing, NVIDIA® GPUs paired with exclusive, free NVIDIA® Studio drivers, boost workflow and brings out the best in your creative apps.

Creative command center: The XPS Desktop has nine USB ports and an integrated card reader, to improve connectivity and RAW image importing for creators.
Elegant design, minimalist appeal

Elegant design, minimalist appeal

Stylish colors: Available in two colors, the XPS Desktop can blend into almost any home or shared workspace. Night Sky features a two-tone resin front and steel on the sides. Platinum Silver sports an aluminum bead-blasted front panel, steel sides, a resin grill, and aluminum feet —for an extra touch of elegance.

Finishing touches: The XPS Desktop features a minimalist, glossy XPS logo—because every detail counts.

Perfect for today. Ready for tomorrow.

Outstanding accessibility: The larger chassis of the XPS Desktop, along with tool-less entry and an easily removable side panel, allow for quick access to internal components and more room to easily upgrade CPU, GPU, memory and storage.

Endless expandability: The XPS Desktop has four DIMM slots, three tool-less backplane slots and room for up to four storage devices. The backplane slots can be used to add sound cards, additional hard drives, PCIe SSDs or accelerator cards.

Unlimited potential: Built to run the absolute latest and greatest in 3rd party graphics, an XPS Desktop with the optional 750W power supply can accommodate up to 310mm or 350W graphics while also supporting next-gen PCIe 5 graphics.
