Dell XPS 13 (9360) with Kaby Lake gets a suite of new drivers and fixes

I'm diving into the new Dell XPS 13 (9360) with Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor for my review next week, so it's nice to see some new drivers get released.

If you own the latest XPS 13 (which, spoiler alert, is fantastic), you'll want to go to Dell's website and grab around fifteen or so updated drivers dated November 29. None of these updates are "critical" so they won't show up in Dell's Update Utility (for whatever reason), but they are listed as "recommended."

We won't list all the drivers, but some of them are big e.g. Intel Chipset, Qualcomm Killer Wireless Suite, Killer Wireless Bluetooth, Ethernet, and even the Intel HD Graphics 620 drivers.

To get the drivers head to Dell's support page for the XPS 13 9360 (opens in new tab), choose Drivers & Downloads, and sort by Release Date to see the latest batch.

You'll need to patch the system using the installers, but it should only take a few minutes. Dell and Microsoft will likely push these out later through Windows update, but if you want the best now, you can choose this method.

If you're eying a new laptop, stay tuned for my HP Spectre x360 review this week as well. I'll eventually pit it against the new XPS 13 to see which is the best!

  • Can't wait for the head to head!
  • pretty much my only problem with the xps 13 is its coil whining. why can't they fix it after this many generations?
  • I think depends on design and engineering of the components on the boards of the modern ultrabooks.
    If the capacitor is not insulated properly or not enough when electricity goes through it tends to vibrate and that's coil whine.
    Extremely thin and miniaturized design may can cause this collateral effect.
    I read this aspect on some website on the web, I hope not to be wrong.
    As I said before I think it's a mix of more factors: design, engineering, r&d costs and final price, of course IMHO.
