Reviews for the Dell XPS 15 7590 9980HK GTX 1650
The XPS 15 is back with new Core i9 options, new GTX Turing graphics options, and new 4K UHD OLED options. We test the highest-end configuration of the XPS 15 7590 to see what the latest series can offer when it's supposedly at its best.
The XPS 15 (2019) is another example of Dell’s ability to deliver top-tier laptops. This year’s model even has an optional 4K OLED panel for deeper blacks and brighter colors, so you can edit photos with confidence. There are thinner, lighter and frankly prettier 15-inch laptops out there. But the XPS 15 is one of the most well rounded.

Summed up, the new Dell XPS 15 is a premium laptop in every sense, from its physical design and eye-popping OLED display, to its fasten-your-seat-belt performance. It's still one of the very best 15-inch laptops on the market and an easy HotHardware Editor's Choice.

In the power versus battery life balance that we all have to live with, if you're one that prefers power, the Dell XPS 15 is one of, if not the best choice on the market. Like I said, it's a great prosumer PC, good for everything including editing videos, some casual gaming, and pretty much everything else that you need to do. At $2,331.99 for this model, you're not only getting a good deal, but you're pretty future-proofed.

The Dell XPS 15 for 2019 addresses the laptop’s most glaring flaw – the webcam placement – but doesn’t do much more than this beyond some updated internals. This feels like a missed opportunity to bring Dell’s flagship 15-inch laptop in line with the rest of its redesigned XPS range.

Model: Dell has been investing their time and resources into some major improvisation efforts on past laptop model installments after listening to the people’s pleas. With more room for improvement comes high expectations, and Dell does not disappoint at all with their newest updates on the Dell XPS 15 7590 laptop model which had been previously launched beforehand. This seemingly outdated entry has experienced a thorough resurgence in order to remain inherently competent and relevant in this so-called decade of the millennials. Without any doubt, the prospect of what the newest rendition of the Dell XPS 15 7590 has to offer remains ever exciting to the public eye.
The Dell XPS 15 7590 basks in its resurgence through a proper addressing of the undesirable positioning of the front webcam in which it has gained notoriety for mainly being focused on the user’s nose rather than their overall appearance. This has been thoroughly addressed through a slight repositioning of the aforementioned camera and the Dell XPS 15 7590 is now properly optimized in accordance to the public’s demand. The front webcam for the updated version of the Dell XPS 15 7590 can now be pinpointed on the center along the top edge of the device’s 15.6 inches screen instead of the bottom. Moreover, repositioning is not the only upgrade to be seen on the Dell XPS 15 7590’s webcam – a new 4-element lens is integrated into the webcam, which is more than capable of delivering sharp video in all areas of frame which works in tandem with temporal noise reduction to cancel out environmental noises. This can be easily regarded as one of the wisest marketing move that Dell has ever made for their laptop models especially when improvements on older models are concerned.
In addition, several other notable upgrades that can be found on the Dell XPS 15 7590 are the core components that are integrated to power this device. The updated version of the Dell XPS 15 7590 laptop model now comes equipped with the 9th generation Intel Core i9-9980HK processor as well as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 1650 graphics card. Both of these components excel in what they do. The Intel Core i9-9980HK, for instance, has recorded an official clocked speed up to a shocking 5 GHz. A clock speed of up to 5 GHz can be regarded as stellar since nearly no other laptop model within the same spectrum or price range can achieve a performance rate of such capacity. Not only that, the GeForce RTX 1650 makes it all the better in the rendering of graphics, which further accelerate the performance of content creation programs, which are specifically designed for video editing, graphic design, animation, and the like.
