Intel Comet Lake-U will allow <14-inch subnotebooks like the XPS 13 to carry processors with 6 physical cores. The system will launch within weeks of the Ice Lake-powered XPS 13 2-in-1 for a starting price of $900 USD. Visually, there will be no changes between the XPS 13 9380 and XPS 13 7390.

The XPS 13 9380 is barely six months old and Dell is already prepared to launch a successor with the upcoming XPS 13 7390. As with the recent Inspiron 3000, 5000, and 7000 announcements, the XPS 13 7390 will carry 14 nm Comet Lake-U processors to succeed the last generation 14 nm Whiskey Lake-U series.

The official specifications list below shows options ranging from the Core i3-10110U to the i5-10210U, i7-10510U, and i7-10710U. This last Core i7 CPU in particular will carry six physical cores unlike any other Core U-series CPU before it. Assuming that the XPS 13 can maintain respectable clock rates for each core, we can expect multi-thread performance to be about 40 percent higher than the last generation Core i7-8565U.

Other than the internal CPU changes and the new Killer AX1650 module for Wi-Fi 6 compatibility, the XPS 13 7390 will carry the same chassis as the XPS 13 9380 with the same 13.3-inch FHD HDR and 4K UHD touchscreen options. Thus, there will be no major visual tweaks for the Comet Lake-U XPS 13 refresh.

The XPS 13 7390 will be available for pre-order beginning August 27 for a starting price of $900 USD.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
