Packed with power

Packed with power.

Move at the speed of your ideas: The latest 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 6-core processors offer more power potential with a BIOS option for overclocking, so you get lightning speed and high power for video editing and playback, gaming and virtual reality. More cores means increased performance while running multiple applications, making multitasking a breeze.

The power to perform: Opt for up to NVIDIA® flagship GeForce® GTX™ 1080, the world’s most advanced gaming GPU ever created, powered by high-performance, energy-efficient new NVIDIA® Pascal™ architecture. This innovative GPU provides elite virtual reality, HD and ultra-resolution 4K displays.

Finish important tasks faster: Your advanced applications perform at blazing speed with memory up to 32GB DDR4 2666MHz and a cached hard drive that uses Intel® Smart Response Technology, so you get the large storage capacity of a hard drive and the responsiveness of a solid-state drive.

Killer Ethernet: The Killer E2400 automatically detects and prioritizes network traffic, delivering incredible throughput while ensuring real-time apps have the lowest possible latency. This allows better video streaming, uninterrupted web browsing, faster downloads and smooth gameplay.The Killer Control Center also allows users to customize settings so their games, applications and website traffic perform exactly the way they want.
Power your virtual experience

Power your virtual experience.

Built with advanced graphics, all XPS Tower Special Edition configurations are VR-capable so you can be the first to experience the latest in virtual reality technology. In addition, select configurations meet the recommended specifications to power an ideal VR experience with either the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headsets.
Designed to grow with you

Designed to grow with you.

Easy to access & upgrade: The optimized size of the tower required an innovative approach to maintaining tool-less access to the internal components. A swing-out PSU tray gives you easy access to the chassis, so you can expand and upgrade things like graphics and memory to meet your specific needs.

Endlessly expandable: Your tower can support up to 225W full size graphics cards and up to four storage devices. Enjoy plenty of storage with capacity for three 3.5″ HDD bays or 2.5″ notebook drives plus one internal optical drive. Four tool-less PCle slots let you add in sound cards, graphics cards and more.

Your command center: Connect all your devices in a snap with 11 total USB ports, including two USB Type-C ports – one now available in front – plus an additional three front-facing USB-A ports.
Mindfully designed

Mindfully designed.

Strong and silent: Even at full load, we’ve tested the tower to ensure it stays as quiet as a whisper. With thermally controlled fans, the system is designed and built to meet Dell’s rigorous acoustic limits, so system noise is never a distraction.

Keep your cool: A cooling system based on Alienware-inspired thermal design ensures that your desktop stays cool under intensive loads. The 3-heat-pipe system, available with optional k-skus, moves heat efficiently from the CPU and is subjected to rigorous, proprietary testing to make certain all components are kept within their thermal specifications.

Award-winning audio: The XPS Tower is engineered for premium high fidelity sound quality and tested to ensure crackles and pops are eliminated. GRAMMY Award-winning Waves MaxxAudio® technology with MaxxSense adapts to the environment, making external speakers sound fuller, louder and clearer.
