Dell announced a refresh of its popular XPS 13 laptop today ahead of the start of the IFA 2019 trade show in Berlin. Dubbed the XPS 13 (7390), this refresh doesn't bring a new design to the table, but it does pack one key upgrade: Intel's latest 10th Gen processors.
The upgraded XPS 13 (7390) will let you pick from a range of 14nm 10th Gen "Comet Lake" processors, which also debuted today to complement the 10nm "Ice Lake" CPUs launched earlier in August. You'll be able to choose from Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 CPUs, which bring a few notable enhancements to the table with this generation.
Intel claims that its "Comet Lake" CPUs push up to "double-digit performance gains" over its previous generation, which should mean there's plenty of power on tap for the XPS 13 (7390). These chips also come with support for Wi-Fi 6, the latest iteration of the Wi-Fi standard, and built-in Thunderbolt 3 support.
Elsewhere, the new XPS 13 (7390) is very much the same machine we saw get an updated design at CES 2019. The 13.3-inch display comes with Dolby Vision support, along with both 1080p and 4K options. You can also equip the laptop with up to 16GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM and up to 2TB of PCIe SSD storage. Here's a full look at the specs:
