As Ivy Bridge nears, rumors of notebooks sporting the third generation Intel Core architecture continue to grow.

Earlier last month, a Dell blog had supposedly revealed some core specs of the rumored 2012 Dell XPS 15 refresh with a detailed range of configurable dual-core and quad-core Ivy Bridge CPUs. Now, new leaks from Netherland-based website Tweakers.net appear to confirm these rumors and more. According to Electronista, the overseas source expects the 2012 XPS 15 to include Core i5-3xxx and Core i7-3xxx options with up to 16GB RAM, GeForce 6xxM GPU options and HDD/SSD options with mSATA accessibility.

Perhaps most intriguing may be the brand new design of the model. An image of the alleged notebook by Tweakers.net reveals edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass display alongside a thinner, 0.95-inch chassis that doesn’t stray too far from a typical MacBook Pro.

Dell has yet to officially announce the 2012 XPS 15 refresh, but we’re definitely keeping our eyes and ears open until Ivy Bridge officially launches later this month.

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.
