Dell’s XPS 13 is now shipping as promised with a hexa-core CPU for the first time. The new 10th gen Intel Core i7 10710U brings six-core performance to 13-inch form factor that until now has typically been reserved for 15-inch or larger notebooks.

As promised, Dell is now shipping its late 2019 XPS 13 with Intel’s 10th gen Core i7-10710U chip which is the first time it has offered a notebook in this class with a six-core processor. Until now, hexa-core notebooks have typically been found in notebooks at 15-inches in size, so it counts as something of a performance breakthrough for the category. Unfortunately, however, it is not a 10nm Ice Lake part, but an undervolted Comet Lake part fabricated on the same 14++ process as the 9th gen Whiskey Lake chips.

According to Intel, the chip offers a base frequency of 1.1 GHz that can Turbo Boost up to 4.7 GHz while its 6 cores also support hyperthreading for a total of 12 threads. It is listed as a 15 W part although manufacturers can configure it anywhere between 15 W and 25 W but it is not yet clear what Dell has opted to do in this instance. Given the thermal constraints of a 13-inch chassis we can probably expect that Dell won’t have changed this from its default wattage.

The Dell XPS 13 with a hexa-core i7-10710U is shipping now from US$1,350. This variant ships with a 13.3-inch FHD non-touch InfinityEdge display, 8 GB of LPDDR3 2133 MHz RAM and 256 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
