Features & Design

With Windows 10 Home – get the best combination of Windows features you know and new improvements you’ll love.
Packed with power
Packed with power.
Move at the speed of your ideas: The Intel® i5 or i7 Core™ processors offer more power potential with a BIOS option for overclocking, so you get lightning speed and high power for video editing, video playback, gaming and virtual reality -all in a tower that’s 27% smaller than our previous XPS desktop.

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.

Get your important tasks finished, faster: Your advanced applications perform at blazing speed with memory up to 32GB DDR4 2400MHz 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 for the files and applications you use most often.
Power your virtual experience

With a VR-capable XPS Tower Special Edition, you can be the first to experience the latest in VR (virtual reality) technology. Built with advanced graphics , all XPS Tower Special Edition configurations are VR-capable so you can be the first to experience the latest in VR (virtual reality) technology. In addition, select XPS Tower Special Edition 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

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. With capacity for three 3.5″ HDD bays or 2.5″ NB drives plus one internal optical drive, it’s built to accommodate additional storage for your music, games, videos and projects. And there are 4 tool-less PCle slots for extra sound cards, graphics cards and more.

Your command center: Connect all your devices in a snap with 11 USB ports, including one USB Type-C port and four front USB ports. Complete your XPS Tower Special Edition with an optional high-performance gaming monitor and a wireless keyboard and mouse.
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 we subject it 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.
