Beauty meets Brawn: Unleashing the New XPS Desktop

XPS is one of the most coveted brands in the PC industry, lauded for its seamless convergence of elegant design and cutting-edge technology – but there’s always more to a XPS device than meets the eye. Nearly 42% larger than its predecessor (27L vs 19L), the new XPS Desktop ushers in an expansive suite of next-gen performance technologies and a more robust cooling architecture, making this the most powerful XPS Desktop ever made.

With heavy-hitter performance cloaked by an understated minimalist design, creators, gamers, and virtually anyone who wants to amplify their passions, can now own a sophisticated PC with workhorse performance.

Performance Powerhouse

Whether you’re an aspiring artist or seasoned virtuoso, stay in your flow with the new 12th Gen Intel Core desktop processors (up to i9) that handles creative projects and gameplay with ease alongside the most impressive graphics options available on the market with either NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs (up to a 3090) or AMD Radeon™ RX GPUs (up to a 6900 XT). Combined with next-generation DDR5 memory supporting up to 50% faster clock speed than DDR4 as well as PCIe Gen5 graphics ready, the new XPS Desktop delivers incredible horsepower to help you conquer every task you throw at it.

What’s cooler than being cool?

Our engineers thoughtfully redesigned the thermal architecture of the device to maximise performance and soften the acoustics through improving airflow. The front bezel of the chassis is designed to intake cool air and move it from the front and out the back. Notably, the new XPS Desktop is up to 21% cooler under load (with a 125W cooling solution). And the new high RPM fans (up to 5,000 RPM) operate more efficiently at slower speeds which helps makes the system quieter. Overall, the new desktop is 50%+ quieter under load over previous generations, so you can channel your flow state and get $h*t done!

Interest is growing for more décor-friendly gadgets that blend into the home like a piece of furniture. Offered in a dark shade with a friendly, gentle, grid pattern, the XPS desktop works with any furnishings.

The new XPS Desktop is elegantly and mindfully designed to fit seamlessly into any environment, just like the rest of the XPS family. Our team of designers explored the latest materials and tested various finishes, textures, and colours to make it look less like a PC, and more like a natural and authentic object that fits harmoniously in your space with access ports that aren’t distracting and a simple grid pattern. It comes in Night Sky, a dark coloured shade.

Grow into Your Passion

Our XPS customers have relentless spirits and are always ready to take on their next challenge. They’re always learning, growing, and expanding their skillsets. That’s why it’s important to have a PC that is customisable, so the system can grow to meet increased performance demands over time. Using the toolless entry chassis, you can easily upgrade the CPU, GPU, memory, storage and more to keep pace with new technology as it becomes available. You’re essentially investing in technology that can scale as your passion does.

Creator Edition

For those who aspire to cultivate their digital content creation skills – whether that be in photography, graphic design, music production or beyond, they can tap into “Creator Edition” that comes with pre-selected configurations ready to withstand creative workloads.
