Dell has introduced its new flagship XPS 15.6-inch laptop aimed at performance-demanding users such as gamers and prosumers. The new XPS 15 7590 machine can be equipped with an eight-core Intel processor, a performance mainstream discrete GPU, as a well as an optional 15.6-inch OLED monitor.

The new Dell XPS 15 comes in the same anodized aluminum chassis with a carbon figer palmrest (featuring an 11 – 17 mm z-height) as its predecessors, but its internals were upgraded quite significantly. The new notebook is based on Intel’s 9th Gen Core processors and can be equipped with the eight-core Core i9-9980HK (up to 5 GHz, 16 MB cache) with which can be overclocked because of unlocked multiplier. The CPU can be accompanied by up to 64 GB of DDR4-2666 memory, up to 2 TB of NVMe/PCIe storage, and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 graphics processor.

On the display side of things, the XPS 15 7590 offers three InfinityEdge 15.6-inch panels with thin bezels: a Full-HD (1920×1080), an IPS Ultra-HD (3840×2160) with 100% AdobeRGB color gamut and touch support, as well as an OLED Ultra-HD non-touch option covering 100% of the DCI-P3 color range.

When it comes to I/O, the XPS 15 7590 laptop has Rivet Networks' Killer AX1650 802.11ax 2×2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 5 controller (based on Intel’s silicon), one Thunderbolt 3/USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 connectors, an HDMI output, a 720p webcam, speakers, microphones, an SD card slot, a 3.5-mm audio jack for headsets, and so on. Since we are talking about a notebook that could potentially be used like a workstation in appropriate environments, Dell also integrated a Windows Hello-compliant fingerprint reader into the power button (select SKUs only). 

Just like predecessors, the new Dell XPS 15 7590 comes with a 56 Wh or a 97 Wh integrated battery that cannot be replaced by the owner. A model with a lower-capacity battery weighs 1.8 kilograms, whereas a model with a higher-capacity battery weighs 2 kilograms.

Dell says that the new XPS 15 7590 will be available shortly starting at $999.99 for a quad-core Full-HD SKU as well as $1,899.99 for a version with an OLED display.

    Overclocking and laptops never ever ends well.

    Can someone PLEASE tell them to move the webcam to the top of the screen? For people that need to do video conference calls it’s a huge pain.
  • Ikefu - Saturday, June 8, 2019 - link

    They did =) It's at the top in the new one
  • itsastickup - Saturday, June 8, 2019 - link

    Sounds lovely, but as a dev I'm more attracted to the 16:10 screen (which is why macs are so great) ultra-light i7 LG 17" 1600 100% sRGB screen beauty. Yes, even though it's only got an i7. I can render video on my desktop monster, but I need the screen real estate for on-the-go devving.

    But what I really want is an ultralight 19" 4K screen. Oh my gosh. I would sell my....left toe pinky for that. Maybe.

    Agreed, 16:10 or 3:2 ftw. Also you can’t really claim thin bezels with that huge bottom one right? Much rather have that used for pixels...
  • risa2000 - Sunday, June 9, 2019 - link

    Can't agree more. Those large top or bottom bezels are not even funny anymore. Why they insist on keeping this AR for working laptops is beyond me. I have seen Surface and Matebook 3:2 screens recently, and I cannot imagine gettting a laptop (for doing anything) with 16:9 panel anymore. Too bad there are only those two at the moment.

    Is the battery really non-replaceable? Or just kind of sort of not replaceable unless you follow the iFixit guide sort of not replaceable?
  • peterfares - Saturday, June 8, 2019 - link

    Unless they changed it from the previous three generations all you need to do is remove about 10 screws on the bottom and the whole bottom plate comes off, then there are maybe 8 screws holding the battery in place. Once those are removed it comes right out.
