Dell just unveiled the next-generation XPS Desktop, the most powerful PC to ever grace the XPS lineup. Its large, roomy design and next-gen hardware make it a killer option for professionals, gamers, or PC nerds that want an upgradeable PC but can’t afford to buy individual components (which are extremely expensive right now).

Launching later this fall, the new XPS Desktop is 42% larger than its predecessor (27 liters) and runs the latest 12th gen Intel Core processors (up to i9K) and NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUS (up to a 3090). Dell also offers AMD Radeon RX GPUs configurations (up to 6900 XT).

To our surprise, the new Dell XPS Desktop runs GDDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 graphics, which should future-proof the PC and provide a ridiculous boost to memory speeds. Dell claims that its GDDR5 memory supports 530% faster clock speeds than DDR4.

And thanks to a the Dell XPS Desktop’s new, larger-than-life design, users can enjoy increased thermals with support for up to three 120mm fans and liquid cooling solutions. And no, you don’t need screwdrivers to get inside the new XPS Desktop—it’s ready for modification.
