A few days after the official launch, the Dell XPS 15 and XPS 17 notebooks are now available in Germany. Both devices can be configured extensively and rely on Intel’s 12th generation processors.
Dell XPS 15 and XPS 17 launch in Germany
Just over a week ago, Dell officially unveiled the new 2022 model generation of its Dell XPS 15 (9520) and XPS 17 (9720) notebooks, and now both notebooks are available in Germany.
The small XPS 15 relies on a 15-inch Full HD+ display (1920 x 1200 pixels) with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and 500 cd/m² brightness. It is equipped with a 12th generation Intel Core i5-12500H processor (18 MB cache, up to 4.5 GHz, 12 cores) in the base configuration.
Optionally, a Core i7-12700H or a Core i9-12900HK with 14 cores and 20 threads, as well as a clock rate of up to 5.00 GHz in Turbo mode are also available. There is also a choice of 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB DDR5 RAM in dual-channel mode with a clock rate of 4,800 MHz.
You can choose between the internal Intel Iris Xe or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti for the graphics. Storage capacity of 512 GB, 1 TB or 2 TB is available. Optionally, the Dell XPS 15 (9520) can also be equipped with a 3.5K OLED display including touch function or a 4K touchscreen.
Dell XPS 17 not quite as rich in variants
The Dell XPS 17 9720 is not quite as configurable, with only a 12th generation Intel Core i7-12700H processor (24 MB cache, up to 4.7 GHz, 14 cores) available here. The graphics solution is basically a GeForce RTX 3050.
The display is optionally available as a 17-inch FHD+ display (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) with 500 cd/m² brightness or as a UHD+ screen (3840 x 2,400 pixels) including touch function. Up to 64 GB DDR5 working memory and a maximum of 2 TB NVMe SSD storage are also possible here.
In return, there are more ports, presumably due to the larger dimensions: 4x Thunderbolt 4 (USB Type-C) with DisplayPort and Power Delivery, 1x eDP port with max +3 USB Type-C, 1 universal audio jack and 1 SD card slot are offered, while the XPS 15 only has two Thunderbolt 4 ports.
Prices and Availability
The Dell XPS 15 starts from 1,798.99 euros in the manufacturer’s store. In the top configuration with Core i9, RTX 3050 Ti, 64 GB RAM and 2 TB SSD, the model is priced at 3,798.99 Euros. The Dell XPS 17 starts from 2,499.00 Euros and costs a maximum of 3,699.01 Euros.
