Dell has unveiled a new XPS 27 All-In-One desktop at Computex 2017 in Taiwan. The Dell XPS 27 AIO not only competes with the Apple iMac and the Microsoft Surface Studio, but also ups the ante by including a GPU that can actually lets users play modern high-end games on the desktop. Thanks to its 4K display, a 10-speaker system, an Intel Core i7 processor, and an AMD Radeon RX 570 GPU, Dell claims that it’s “VR Ready” as well.
The Dell XPS 27 AIO (2017) features a 27-inch 4K display with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels, 350-nit brightness, and 100% Adobe RGB colour spectrum coverage. It comes in non-touchscreen and touchscreen variants. Both variants use Intel’s 3.6GHz Core i7-7700 CPU with four cores, eight threads, 8MB cache, and a boost clock speed of 4.2GHz. There’s 16GB of DDR4 2133MHz RAM (configurable up to 64GB). It uses a motherboard with Intel H170 chipset.
The new all-in-one PC uses the newly announced AMD Radeon 570 GPU with 8GB of DDR5 VRAM. It’s a higher mid-range GPU, so you can play all the recent games, albeit at a lower QHD resolution. If you want 60fps gaming, you’ll have to drop the resolution to 1920×1080. The non-touchscreen variant comes with 2TB mechanical hard disk drive and 32GB M.2 SSD for caching. The touchscreen variant comes with a 512GB SSD (PCIe 3.0 x4).
The touchscreen variant also comes with a Microsoft Surface Studio-like articulating stand and Windows 10 Home or Pro operating system. The non-touchscreen variant of the Dell XPS 27 AIO comes with a regular stand and Windows 10 Home operating system pre-installed. In terms of IO, the desktop comes with one HDMI port, one DisplayPort 1.2, an Ethernet port, five USB 3.0 Type-A ports (one supports PowerShare), and two Thunderbolt 3.0 (Type-C) ports.
It has dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity options. a 10-speaker system, a 720p webcam with IR sensors for Windows Hello authentication, an SD/MMC card reader, and a headphone jack. The entry-level variant with a non-touchscreen display, 2TB mechanical hard disk drive, and regular stand is priced at $1,999.99 (approximately ₹1,29,009), while the higher-end variant with touchscreen display and 512GB SSD is priced at $2,649.99 (approximately ₹1,70,938).
Dell’s desktop offerings in India do not include the XPS AIO range due to its higher price tag, which isn’t suitable for the Indian market. So, don’t expect Dell to launch the new XPS 27 AIO in India.
