Like the recent Kaby Lake XPS 13 9360 update to the Skylake XPS 13 9350, the Precision 5520 will likely be the minor Kaby Lake update to the existing Precision 5510 Skylake SKUs.

CES 2017 is less than a week away and major manufacturers like Dell are expected to announce new laptops alongside the next wave of Kaby Lake CPUs. A recent listing of Dell Precision workstations, however, is showing the new Precision 5520 with yet to be announced 35 W Kaby Lake options (i5-7300HQ, i5-7440HQ, and i7-7700HQ) and even a Quadro M2100. In comparison, the current Precision 5510 can only be equipped with up to Xeon or Core i7 Skylake processors and Quadro M1000M Graphics.

There appears to be no other major changes between the Precision 5510 and supposed Precision 5520 beyond the core specifications. The chassis will likely remain identical with characteristics lifted from the successful XPS 15 InfinityEdge series. The 400-nit backlight is also being advertised on the new Precision 5520, although the display our own Precision 5510 test unit averaged about 400 nits as well. It's possible that the display options between the Precision 5510 and 5520 will remain identical.

An online retailer earlier last week leaked unannounced Asus ROG notebooks sporting the same i7-7700HQ CPU to succeed the current Skylake i7-6700HQ.

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.
