[Specs, Info, and Prices] The Dell XPS 15 9510 and XPS 17 9710 get revamped with Tiger Lake CPUs and RTX Graphics

The XPS 13 is the most popular XPS device by far, as it combines an extremely lightweight chassis with just enough performance to make it suitable for work and design.

Now Dell is upping their game with the larger XPS 15 and 17, upgrading them with the latest Tiger Lake H processors from Intel as well as the RTX family from NVIDIA. These are truly workstation and productivity laptops with 16:10 displays that offer high resolution and color coverage that is through the roof.

Today we are giving you a quick overview of the Dell XPS 15 9510 and the XPS 17 9710.

The Dell XPS 15 9510 and 17 9710 will be available this summer with a starting price of $1,249.99 and $1,449.99 respectively.

When it comes to the design, the laptops definitely deliver in spades. Using a similar exterior to the previous generation XPS 15 and 17 devices, the devices are built using aluminum and carbon fiber. We especially like the choice of the latter, since carbo fiber is known to be one of the best materials when it comes to weight and rigidity. The aluminum is used mainly for the lid and bottom panel, while the base is mostly made out of carbon fiber, which has an interesting pattern. The weight and height are spectacular when you factor in the hardware that’s inside. The XPS 15 weighs in at 1.81 kg and is 18 mm tall exactly. The XPS 17 is obviously the bigger device so it has a weight of 2.21 kg and a height of 19.5 mm.



The display choices differ between the XPS 15 and XPS 17, but we’ll try to simplify as best as we can. Starting with the XPS 15, it has three 15.6-inch displays to choose from, all of which have a 16:10 aspect ratio. The first one has a Full HD resolution, a max brightness of 500 nits, and 100% sRGB coverage. After that, we have one OLED panel with a resolution of 3.5K, 100% DCI-P3 coverage, and DisplayHDR 500. The final panel comes with 4K+ resolution, 500 nits of brightness, and 100% AdobeRGB coverage, making it a beast for creators. The XPS 17 has the same display choices, except for the OLED panel.

Specifications and features

The specifications are where the real upgrades are found. The processors have been replaced by the 11th Gen Tiger lake H CPUs from Intel. The base configuration of the XPS 15 comes with the Core i5-11400H, while the top one is equipped with the Core i9-11900H. For the XPS 17, the situation is similar, with the only difference being the availability of the Core i9-11900HK, which has an unlocked multiplier, allowing for overclocking.

The graphics are either integrated or discrete. The iGPU option is the UHD Graphics Xe G4 from Intel, which has 48Execution Units. The discrete graphics options are the RTX 3050 (Laptop) and the RTX 3060 (Laptop). These GPUs are mainly known for their gaming prowess, but the performance that they can bring when it comes to productivity or encoding is overlooked more often than not.

The laptops are stacked with features, some of which include a fingerprint reader, an HD webcam with IR face recognition, a backlit keyboard, and a set of stereo speakers with stereo woofers, provided from MaxxAudio Pro.
