Now you can blaze through system-intensive applications like video editing, HD video playback, gaming, and VR capable graphics options from NVIDIA™ or AMD.

Power for everything you do: Stay in the flow with 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor-powered XPS desktop that handles your creative projects with ease, like editing photos and videos, so they're ready to share in a flash. Immerse yourself in your favorite show, the latest popular game, or a new creative project – and never think twice about your PC's ability to keep up. Designed with you in mind, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ desktop processors give you the performance you've always wanted, for everything you do.

Up your creative game: Take your creative projects to a whole new level with GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs. Delivering AI-acceleration in top creative apps. Backed by the NVIDIA Studio platform of dedicated drivers and exclusive tools. And built to perform in record time. Whether rendering complex 3D scenes, editing 8K video, or livestreaming with the best encoding and image quality, GeForce RTX™ GPUs give you the performance to create your best. Get up to the GeForce RTX™ 3060Ti, powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture.

Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughput speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer AX1650i is nearly 3 times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2x2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system for fast, smooth online experiences.
Intelligently and purposefully designed

Intelligently and purposefully designed

Keep your cool: All of the decisions made through the design process for the desktop were made purposefully to maximize performance and airflow. Starting with the use a front bezel which allows the airflow path to draw cool air from front to back over graphics cards and CPU, the power supply unit and the M.2 SSD storage. Finally, the open architecture layout means nothing is sitting on top of the CPU and GPU, limiting airflow.

Regulated cooling: Our engineers designed this system to include voltage regulator cooling with select processors to ensure system optimal performance by maintaining adequate airflow over the VR components. They also selected an optimal location for the placement of the M.2 SSD to maximize performance and rigorous, proprietary testing ensures that all system components are kept cool, even under the most intensive loads.

Designed to stay quiet: The XPS Desktop was designed to blend into your environment, whether that be a family room, office or kitchen, you can be assured your desktop will stay quiet, even when it’s performing at its highest. The desktop uses high RPM fans, with a maximum system fan speed of 4500 rpm to more efficiently cool. Fans can run slower, therefore at lower acoustics.

Prepared for your future needs

Prepared for your future needs

Endlessly expandable: When it comes to work or passion projects the more memory your system has, the better. Enjoy plenty of storage with capacity for one 3.5" HDD plus two 2.5" NB drives plus one internal optical drive. Three PCle slots let you add in sound cards, graphics cards, and more as you customize your machine.

Performance headroom: The XPS Desktop PSU options allow for better performance upgrades during the life of your system. The 360W PSU supports a 65W processor plus up to 150W graphics. Even more, the optional 500W PSU supports up to 95W K-series CPUs and 225W graphics.

Your command center: Connect all your devices in a snap with 10 total USB ports, including four front facing ports for easy access.

Easy to access: The optimized size of the desktop required an innovative approach to maintaining tool-less access to the internal components. Once the side is removed you gain easy access to the chassis, so you can expand and upgrade seamlessly.
