Dell Accidentally Leaks Out the Specs of Its Updated XPS 15


Going into 2017, Dell has probably revealed what kind of performance we’ll be expecting from its upcoming XPS 15 lineup and it turns out that notebook should exhibit some decent performance due to the fact that there’s going to be a dGPU present underneath the hood of the notebook.

GTX 1050 Expected to Be Present in the Upcoming XPS 15 – NVIDIA Hasn’t Publicly Released the GPU for Notebooks

The actual name of the upcoming notebook is said to be the Dell XPS 9650 and is expected to feature a 15-inch UHD display. We’re not sure if the company is going to announce a 1080p model down the line, but let us keep our fingers crossed for that little announcement. The upcoming notebook will also be rocking Intel’s 7th generation lineup of processors and the notebook will be available later in 2017 in the following CPU configurations.

  • i3-7100HQ
  • i5-7300HQ
  • i7-7700HQ

One huge change expected from the notebook is that it will be running NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with up to 4GB VRAM. Keep in mind that the GTX 1050 is available with 2GB VRAM for the desktop version, while the ‘Ti’ variants come with 4GB of GDDR5 of video memory, so we don’t know what to expect from the upcoming model. It could just be that the leak was referring to the GTX 1050 series in general, meaning that we could also see the XPS 15 tout a GTX 1050 Ti version as well. The GTX 1050 series of graphic chips do not have vast power requirements so we doubt that there are going to be astronomical differences in the notebook and desktop GPU clock speeds.

In case you were wondering the information that Dell leaked prior to removing it, it has been detailed below:

“Super-speed: The most powerful XPS laptop we’ve ever built includes the latest 7th Gen Intel® Quad Core™ processors and an optional 4GB GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics card with the latest and greatest Pascal™ architecture, so you can blaze through your most intensive tasks.”
