We are rolling in ever closer to CES 2024 and many brands have already dropped announcements ahead of the show. Now, Dell has announced the new Dell XPS line powered by Intel Core Ultra processors for 2024 right here.

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

The new Dell XPS 16, XPS 14, and XPS 13 designs take a minimalistic approach that the company has been embracing over the past few years. The portfolio is made of CNC machined aluminum and Gorilla Glass 3, and tone-on-tone colors (available in Graphite and Platinum). The striking, unconventional look has key components that amplify the laptop experience. They feature a touch function row to switch between media and function keys easily, a seamless glass touchpad with haptic feedback and larger keycaps that provide a comfortable and smooth typing experience with every keystroke.

Like I predicted last year, this year’s Dell XPS lineup matches what Dell did with its XPS 13 the past two years and it is a welcomed change. Let’s jump into what the press release from Dell had to say about the new Dell XPS line.

Each new XPS laptop features InfinityEdge panels with OLED touch options, variable refresh rates, high-resolution options, stunning color and Dolby Vision® for rich detail. The new portfolio boasts an exceptional audio experience starting with a quad speaker design, support for Dolby Atmos® immersive audio and 3D stereo surround from MaxxAudio® Pro by Waves. Plus, the new intelligent FHD 1080p webcam provides crystal clear video calls.

The lineup also brings new AI-enabled features, with AI acceleration built into the device thanks to Intel Core Ultra processors and experiences brought to life by Windows 11. These experiences enhance creativity and productivity, while also providing better performance and longer battery life. (If this sounds too good to be true, read more about the efficiencies created from on-device AI here.) And speaking of battery life, all XPS laptops feature ExpressCharge to recharge 80% of battery life in just 60 minutes, so you can keep your creative flow going.

XPS 16

Dell pioneered the art of engineering narrow bezels to minimize the device’s footprint and maximize screen size. Now you can say hello to our new immersive 16- and 14-inch screens. The new XPS 16 and XPS 14 bring more portability to our XPS laptops and place the focus on performance and design.

The XPS 16 is the front-runner of the portfolio, with supercharged performance for complex workloads. Featuring the latest Intel Core Ultra processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs (up to the GeForce RTX 4070 GPU), the XPS 16 is our most powerful XPS laptop, with up to 80W of sustained performance. Whether editing videos or testing the latest AI software, it’s ideal for those running demanding apps, providing a smooth and fast experience.

XPS 14

Combining performance, design and portability, the XPS 14 is a great option for those who need the freedom of working from anywhere. The XPS 14 is 21% lighter than the XPS 16 2 but still delivers powerful performance to complete challenging tasks with ease. With optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs (up to the GeForce RTX 4050 GPU), you can edit and play high-resolution videos effortlessly. And with long battery life, it’s a refined laptop made to move with you.

Both XPS 16 and XPS 14 are NVIDIA Studio-validated systems, 3 meaning they deliver industry-leading performance for demanding creative tasks such as 3D rendering, video editing and live-streaming, while offering exclusive access to the Studio AI-powered suite of tools and enhanced stability with NVIDIA Studio Drivers.

XPS 13

XPS 13 started our design revolution and set our vision of the future with its iconic design. Starting at just 2.6 pounds (ca. 1,179 g), it’s our thinnest and lightest XPS, so you can carry the device wherever you’re headed. The renewed laptop has three new display options to choose from (including FHD+, QHD+ touch and 3K+ OLED touch) to provide you with a versatile visual experience, suitable for everyday productivity to high-resolution content creation. The XPS 13 is the ideal multitasking machine to balance school, work, personal projects or entertainment.

AI Integration

AI and generative AI (GenAI) are driving the latest wave of innovation and unlocking new possibilities on the PC. It’s exciting to see PCs built with AI acceleration into the device—something we touched on earlier, but let’s take this a step further.

The new Dell XPS portfolio, powered by Intel Core Ultra processors, features a built-in AI acceleration engine with the addition of a neural processing unit (NPU). This means the PC no longer needs to rely solely on the CPU or GPU for processing and performance. Imagine you are a creator who is always on the go and editing photos in Adobe Lightroom. The addition of the NPU automatically leverages the right compute engine for your workload—in this case, letting you edit images faster than before while preserving battery life.

The Dell XPS laptops all come with Copilot in Windows 11, harnessing the capabilities of AI to make the things you do every day easier, faster and effortless. The portfolio also features a Copilot key designed to make it even easier to get things done and stay in the flow of work. Now, with the press of a key, you can have quick access to your everyday AI companion.
