Dell XPS 17 coming to Singapore

Powerful performance for creators



The newest addition to the Dell XPS lineup — the Dell XPS 17 — is coming to Singapore.

Immediately noticeable is its edge-to-edge display. Fittingly called InfinityEdge, it’s something that Dell has been known for ever since the first XPS laptop was released. However, even by today’s standards, it’s still quite a looker.

It follows the redesign seen on the 2020 version of the Dell XPS 15. It’s made of a single aluminum body with carbon fiber, woven glass fiber, and hardened Corning Gorilla Glass. This means you can expect this look and feel premium which is what we’ve come to expect for Dell XPS.

You get a wide-array of ports: Four thunderbolt3 and DisplayPort, a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-C to USB-A, and most notably, a full size SD card reader. That tells you this was made with creators in mind.

Supporting that statement is the display that supports 4K HDR and promises to produce accurate colors. There’s also the processing power. Just take a look at these configurations:

Processor Memory Graphics Storage
Dell XPS 17
  • 10th Gen Intel CoreTM i5-10300H
  • 10th Gen Intel CoreTM i7-10750H
  • 10th Gen Intel CoreTM i7-10875H
  • 10th Gen Intel CoreTM i9-10885H (available post launch)
  • 8GB DDR4 SDRAM at 2933MHz
  • 16GB DDR4 SDRAM at 2933MHz
  • 32GB DDR4 SDRAM at 2933MHz
  • 64GB DDR4 SDRAM at 2933MHz Note: (2x SO-DIMM)
  • Intel UHD Graphics
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti 4GB GDDR6
  • NVIDIA GeForce RTXTM 2060 6GB GDDR6
  • 256GB SSD
  • 512GB SSD
  • 1TB SSD
  • 2TB SSD

Having these specs doesn’t mean everything’s always cranked up to eleven. Managing all that hardware is what Dell calls the adaptive performance. This means the XPS 17 will adapt to the workload you’re currently handling for maximum efficiency.

You also have other handy features like Windows Hello and a power button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor.

Pricing and availability

The Dell XPS 17 will be available in Singapore starting June 12, 2020. Starting price has yet to be announced.
