Dell's XPS 13 Models With Intel's 11th-Gen Chips Arrive This Week

From PC Mag: One of our best reviewed laptops, the Dell XPS 13, is poised to get even better. Along with its 2-in-1 sibling, the XPS 13 is getting refreshed with Intel’s new 11th generation “Tiger Lake” Core processors.

Dell will start selling the 13.4-inch laptop models on Sept. 30 in North America and certain European countries. The Dell XPS 13 (9310) will start at $999 while the 2-in-1 model, which can flip into a tablet, will cost $1,249 and up.

The new Tiger Lake silicon will help make the laptops even faster, especially when it comes to graphics-related processing. PCMag tested out the new Intel chips, and found they can outperform AMD’s rival processors in certain tasks, such as video editing and PC gaming.

The Dell XPS 13 models will also get Thunderbolt 4 ports, which connect via USB-C. The Thunderbolt 4 inclusion means the laptops have enough bandwidth to support two 4K displays, or a single 8K monitor.
