Dell Adds Intel Comet 10th Gen Lake Processors to New XPS 13 and Other Laptops

Dell has announced the updated Dell XPS 13 along with other laptop lineup updates ahead of IFA 2019.

Various configurations are available, but each will ship with the new U-series Comet Lake 10th generation processors. The lowest-end model, which starts at $899, features an Intel core i3-10110U processor, for example, while the most expensive model has a beefy hexacore Intel core i7-10710U processor (starting in October). Oddly enough, it looks like all configurations also getting dual-channel will become LPDDR3 SDRAM rather than faster LPDDR4x RAM.

Dell also said its new XPS 13 2-in-1 is now available. This is a Project Athena-certified laptop. Project Athena, in its purest form, is essentially a set of standards that Intel wants for laptops. The idea is similar to Intel's ultrabook program, which started in 2012, but with a much broader set of criteria. That said, the biggest takeaway from the Athena project is laptops, including the XPS 13 2-in-1 laptop, needing to make nine hours of battery life.

Keep in mind Dell 2-in-1 has information on Ice Lake's 10th generation processors.

Dell has even said that it has other laptop models that will soon start shipping with 10th generation processors. The Inspiron 14 7000 and Inspiron 7000 13-inch 2-in-1 laptops, for example, launch October 1 for $929.99 and $849, respectively. Both feature 10th generation Comet Lake processors, although the 2-in-1 comes in 13-inch, 15-inch and 17-inch configurations, with larger sizes with DDR4 RAM and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 series graphics.

If you haven't noticed yet, it's all refreshing about the new hardware from Intel. So if you want to get an updated XPS 13 laptop, we recommend that you wait until it launches with the new U-series Comet Lake 10th Gen processors next week.
