Dell Unveils New XPS 13, 14 and 16 Laptops

Dell has announced a major change to its portfolio of XPS laptops with the introduction of the XPS 16 and XPS 14 and the revamp of the XPS 13 Plus to XPS 13. This trio of laptops place the focus on futuristic design and productivity with built-in AI.

The new XPS designs take a minimalistic approach. The portfolio is made of CNC machined aluminium and Gorilla Glass 3, and tone-on-tone colours (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.

“With XPS, we have a long history of taking risks, being inquisitive and asking big design questions,” said Donnie Oliphant, Senior Director for XPS Product Marketing at Dell Technologies. “At CES 2022, we showcased our vision of the future with XPS 13 Plus – an elegant and modern device designed with simplicity at the core. Now, we are unifying the design across our XPS portfolio. We are introducing new screen sizes with the XPS 16 and XPS 14 and we’re revamping the XPS 13 Plus to XPS 13. This trio of laptops share elements that eliminate distractions and place the focus on productivity.”

Style Meets Performance

Each new XPS laptop features InfinityEdge panels with OLED touch options, variable refresh rates, high-resolution options, stunning colour 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. All XPS laptops feature ExpressCharge to recharge 80% of battery life in just 60 minutes, so you can keep your creative flow going.

Introducing the New XPS Portfolio

Dell pioneered the art of engineering narrow bezels to minimize its footprint and maximize screen size. Now the company is introducing its new immersive 16- and 14-inch screens. The new XPS 16 and XPS 14 bring more portability to XPS laptops and place the focus on performance and design.

The XPS 16 is the frontrunner 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 Dell’s most powerful XPS laptop with up to 80W of sustained performance. Ideal for those running demanding apps, whether it’s editing videos or testing the latest AI software, users have a smooth and fast experience.

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, but it 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, 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.

AI, Your New Best Friend

AI and generative AI (GenAI) are driving the latest wave of innovation and unlocking new possibilities on the PC. The new XPS portfolio, powered by Intel Core Ultra processors, features a built-in AI acceleration engine with the addition of a NPU (neural processing unit).

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. This new technology automatically leverages the right compute engine for your workload, in this case letting you edit images faster than before while preserving battery life.

The 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 – users can have quick access to their everyday AI companion.

Sustainable From Top to Bottom

Dell continues its commitment to incorporate more sustainable materials in both its products and packaging. The new XPS family has the highest level of sustainable materials yet, and, for the first time, the new XPS family is designed with recycled aluminium and low emissions aluminium made from a renewable energy source. This reduces the carbon footprint of this material by up to 89%. Made from 100% recycled or renewable content, the packaging used to protect XPS laptops brings the company one step closer to meeting our ambitious 2030 Advancing Sustainability Goals.

The new XPS family is registered EPEAT Gold and complies with EPEAT’s new and stringent climate criteria to achieve the EPEAT Climate+ Designation. With the Climate+ designation, these laptops have met industry’s best practices for decarbonization.
