Dell XPS 13

Dell unveils new products, software at key tech event

LAS VEGAS, January 12, 2018

At the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), being held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Dell is unveiling a suite of elegant new products and software to address the myriad ways people play and work.

In addition to revealing some of the world’s most beautiful devices, Dell will highlight incredible hidden innovations within these products designed to improve performance, functionality and the overall user experience.

“At Dell, innovation never sleeps. We’re passionate about creating technology that expands the boundaries of what’s possible,” explains Sam Burd, president, Client Solutions Group, Dell. “With Dell, the incredible product design you see on the outside makes for gorgeous machines, but one of our most striking advantages comes from the innovation within. Beauty and brawn lurk beneath those beautiful exteriors, revolutionising and redefining personal computing, and giving people experiences they want – and some they’ve never dreamed possible.”

Feats of engineering—XPS 13 and XPS 15 2-in-1

Dell’s XPS portfolio has won more product awards than any other brand in the company’s history. The latest XPS 13 is improved in every conceivable way and was just named a CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree. Along with its next-generation InfinityEdge 4K Ultra HD display, the XPS 13 adds a dazzling Rose Gold and Alpine White woven glass fibre interior as an option to traditional silver and black, with narrower borders, up to 80 per cent more thermal headroom, a brighter display and higher 4K Ultra HD resolution. Inside its thinner, lighter design, the Dell Power Manager delivers power just when needed, while Gore Thermal Insulation, the same material used in the Mars Rover to diffuse and dissipate heat, introduces an innovative material into the thermal design to keep the system cool while it works hard.

Addressing a gap in the marketplace for thinner, lighter and more powerful mobile devices that both hobbyists and professional creators demand, Dell unveils the first XPS 15 2-in-1, the world’s most powerful 15-inch 2-in-1, a feat of engineering that embodies innovation on every level. Balancing high performance with a sleek design, the smallest and thinnest 15.6-inch 2-in-1 available  delivers the CPU and graphics horsepower to run content creation apps, process huge files and play AAA games while featuring touch, pen, an innovative maglev keyboard and the screen real estate that creators crave. New eighth Gen Intel Core processor combining a high performance CPU and discrete Radeon RX Vega M graphics in a single package, helps make the new XPS 15 2-in-1 possible. The XPS 15 2-in-1 also offers an eye-catching next-generation InfinityEdge 4K Ultra HD display with vivid colour and cinematic immersion in an impossibly slim 16mm form. Expert craftsmanship, premium materials and finishes including machined aluminium, carbon fibre and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 make this a functional, futuristic design.

Immersive experiences with Dell Cinema

Now more than ever, people watch movies and TV shows on their PCs with the expectation of a full cinematic experience, including studio sound and visual quality, as creators intend. That experience is now available on XPS and select Inspiron PCs through Dell Cinema, an immersive audio and visual experience.

● CinemaColor: powered by Windows HD Color in partnership with Microsoft, decodes and displays high dynamic range (HDR) streamed content with enhanced detail, more vivid hues, sharper brightness and a wider colour gamut
● CinemaSound: a Dell exclusive audio innovation powered by WavesMaxx Audio Pro that delivers clearer highs, enhanced bass and higher volume for a true cinematic audio experience
● CinemaStreaming: powered by Killer and SmartByte, a software-based solution co-developed by Dell and Rivet Networks that optimises online streaming and interactive video resulting in less buffering, more bandwidth and better resolution

New monitors and a significant performance uplift for Dell’s Latitude portfolio

Dell continues to lead the industry in displays with the addition of the world’s brightest ultrathin monitors in their class : the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DM) and Dell 24 Ultrathin Monitor (S2419HM). Pictures come to life in luminous, vivid colour and both monitors support HDR-content playback for a CinemaColor experience, producing beautiful colour depth, clarity and contrast in a virtually borderless InfinityEdge display for strikingly realistic images. With a sleek profile at only 5.5mm at its thinnest, both monitors deliver peak brightness of 600 nits.

Designed for the mobile workforce, Dell’s Latitude portfolio of secure and manageable commercial notebooks and 2-in-1s has been fully refreshed with the latest eighth Gen Intel Core vPro 15W dual-core and quad-core processors delivering significant performance improvement. Productivity benchmark tests show dramatic performance uplift over products based on the previous generation processors. The additional cores and threads make a noticeable difference on company networks when IT is running encryption, malware scans and other background apps to secure and connect employees. The Latitude product line also has been updated with several exciting new hidden innovations. For example, the Latitude 7490 notebook features an exclusive active steering antenna that delivers better wi-fi range, speed and connection reliability, and a new Full HD super low power display that reduces power consumption by up to 50 per cent, resulting in several hours of additional battery life. Check out this blog for more details on these innovations and the exciting new line-up of Latitude business solutions.

To maximise productivity for on-the-go professionals and media enthusiasts, Dell is introducing the world’s most compact Thunderbolt three storage device and one of the fastest portable drives available, the Dell Performance Portable Thunderbolt SSD 1000 (1TB) and SSD 500 (500GB).
