We haven’t covered the Dell XPS Desktop PC in a while, but new XPS desktop it looks pretty interesting because it gets (up to) Intel ‘s new 125W 12th-gen Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU along with GeForce RTX 3090 or Radeon RX 6900 XT. These days, buying an entire system could be your best chance to get one of these RTX 3090s at a “good price” (wow).
Users can add up to 128 GB of DDR5 RAM (4 × 32), which is insanely cool if you’re working with huge data sets. It’s probably not for gaming, but Creative users would appreciate the 128GB of RAM and the built-in full-size SD card reader on the front. In terms of storage, there are up to 2TB SSDs and 2TB HDDs (4TB total) available at the time of order.
The new case design is the most obvious change from the outside, and this 2021 XPS desktop has been slightly raised for better airflow, which can also mitigate the suction of floor dust. If you plan to move the computing limits (or want a quieter computer), there is even a liquid cooling option (CPU) for lasting performance.
The components are neatly arranged, and based on the pictures, the internal air flow should be pretty good, without the cables bothering you. With up to three 120mm fans, you should be able to run a lot of air while still being relatively quiet.
There’s not much room for additional PCI cards, so you should consider this if you plan to expand your horizon in the future. I’m not 100% sure the motherboard is a standard ATX because the motherboard seems to be on the front of the case.
The new Alienware Legend 2.0 case quality is higher (check out the Aurora R13), but I bet the XPS Desktop will have a better performance / price ratio if you put the computer under the table anyway. Before you ask, we haven’t heard of the Ryzen SKU yet, and the official product page isn’t open yet.
