Features & Design
Create with colossal power
Feel the power: High-performance 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors and powerful NVIDIA® graphics power the most intensive creative pursuits.
Desktop-caliber creativity in a laptop: Packed with staggering performance typically only available from desktops, 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors bring desktop-caliber creativity to your laptop. With up to i7 processors with 8 cores and 16 threads, 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors help you capture, edit and share your creations faster than ever before. Designed for performance and portability, so you can go wherever your vision takes you.
More creating, less waiting: Optional GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti laptops are built with the breakthrough graphics performance of the award-winning GeForce GPUs. Dedicated GPU power accelerates the creative apps you use every day.
Next gen content creation: The XPS 17 with an optional GeForce RTX™ GPU features dedicated ray tracing, AI, and video hardware for next generation content creation. Dedicated ray tracing cores render beautiful scenes with accurate lighting, shadows, and reflections. Dedicated AI cores handle time-consuming, repetitive creative tasks such as video re-timing, image enhancement, color matching, face tagging, and style transfer. And dedicated video hardware enables fast, high-quality encoding and decoding for video editing and livestreaming.
Speed and memory: Power through intense workloads with up to 64GB memory and up to 3x faster wireless with Killer™ AX1650 built on Intel WiFi6 Chipset.
Advanced thermal design: The XPS 17 delivers powerful performance in an incredibly thin form factor. Optional discrete graphics feature unique dual opposite outlet fans, that increase fan airflow by approximately 30% and drive cooling airflow in both directions, resulting in more airflow overall and improved skin temperatures*. Dell’s development of the Dual Opposite Outlet fan has resulted in multiple pending patent applications and at least one issued patent. A massive vapor chamber spans the entire width of the laptop providing even more heat dissipation capacity to help keep the laptop cool and achieve higher turbo power.
Create with color
Display like no other: Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colors never seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker.See every detail: The optional 4K Ultra HD+ (3840×2400) touch display offers pinpoint accuracy for all of your computing needs. See the detail of every pixel in photos without needing to zoom in or see more content while browsing the web.Color that pops: Equipped with 100% Adobe RGB and 94% DCI-P3 color gamut, your screen delivers saturated colors while a 1650:1 contrast ratio allows you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light, like outdoors, while a 0.65% anti-reflective coating cuts the glare of a glossy screen.Easy on the eyes: Eyesafe® display reduces harmful blue light and maintains vivid color. It’s the first panel to intelligently manage light energy and the source, selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum.
Stellar in size
Creator Edition: Expand what’s possible.
Every XPS 17 badged with Creator Edition is fully equipped with the creative tools you need to make magic happen faster and better- so your art can be pushed to the edge.
Unleash the power to create: With Intel®’s latest 10th gen, 8 core, 16 threads i7 processor you can keep at your most demanding workloads for even longer.
Effortless multitasking: Enjoy smooth Adobe filter performance with up to 64GB of memory.
Faster results: The rendering of high-resolution graphics and videos accelerates with performance class NVIDIA® graphics.
Dependability you can bank on: Designed and validated for content creation as part of NVIDIA’s RTX Studio program and backed by NVIDIA Studio drivers, the XPS 17 has undergone extensive testing with leading creative applications to deliver the performance and reliability you need so you can create at the speed of imagination. RTX Studio program requires GeForce 2060 or higher, i7 processor, 16GB memory and 512GB SSD.
Vibrant colors: A 100% Adobe RGB display enables you to edit your videos with confidence in their color.
Infinite storage: Massive flash storage provides plenty of room for videos, graphics, or designs.
Minimum recommended configuration: i5 processors, 16GB, 512GB, (discrete graphics are recommended for videography or graphic design).
Precision manufacturing: 100% of the enclosure is sculpted by a CNC (computer numerical control) machining process. A high precision, machine-milled aluminum chassis creates an elegant design with high build quality that’s stronger and stiffer than magnesium or plastic.
Cool and light: The black carbon fiber palm rest is inspired by the aerospace industry allowing for maximum strength and minimal weight.
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistant.
Diamond-cut sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time.
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined-cut outline by hand.
Elevated essentials: Elements like the display, keys and touchpad are all larger for an easier, more optimized user experience. The XPS features a massive display, a big, comfortable touchpad and an edge-to-edge backlit keyboard with large key caps for maximum productivity.
Easier to open: The new twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. The new hinge design makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Revolutionary webcam construction: The new XPS 17 webcam is small (only 2.25 mm) and also better. A new 4-element lens uses more elements than a typical webcam to deliver sharp video in all areas of the frame, while temporal noise reduction uses advanced noise reduction, significantly improving video quality, especially in dim lighting conditions. Finally, the lens is assembled with precise machinery to ensure all points of the image are in focus.
Immerse yourself in sound
Serious about sound: Expand audio into an immersive 3D soundscape with our quad speaker design and Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers. Any music, movie, or game plays with depth and width that seems to defy the laws of physics. The XPS 17 is the first-ever laptop featuring Waves Nx® 3D audio for speakers tuned by multi-Grammy Award® winning producer, Jack Joseph Puig.*
Mic check: Top-mounted mics provide for a better audio experience in Skype conference calls and for far-field Cortana, allowing you to talk to your laptop from up to 14 ft (4 m) away.
Ready when you are
Start in an instant: A built-in lid sensor allows you to open the lid and power up in milliseconds, no matter what power-state you are in.
You are the password: Choose between two secure, personalized ways to log on. Wake your system with Windows Hello as the infrared camera recognizes your face and unlocks your XPS with secure facial recognition technology. The fingerprint reader integrated into the power button lets you log on with just a touch.
Easy on-the-go: Sacrificing the essentials for a thinner body is unheard of. With four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, one-cable connect for Dell docking, headphone jack and a full SD card slot you can count on high-speed connectivity, flexibility of power-in and transferring files from your camera on-the-go.
Work or play: You’ll experience incredibly long battery life—up to 13 hours, 8 minutes* on a FHD+ model with 97WHr battery when streaming your favorite shows or up to 7 hours and 28 minutes* of streaming on a 4K+ model with 97WHr battery.
Saving our seas: Recognized as a CES® 2018 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree, our black packaging trays are a step beyond recycled. 25% percent of the material consists of ocean plastics collected from coastal areas, while the remaining 75% is made up of other recycled plastics.
Energy efficient: The XPS 17 is ENERGY STAR® certified.
Safer materials: Free of materials like cadmium, lead, mercury and some phthalates, it’s also EPEAT® registered and BFR/PVC-free.
