An alleged Dell roadmap showing XPS laptops in shipping, development, and concept stages has been acquired by the Dutch technology website Tweakers. The roadmap is dated from February 2018 and includes concept ideas for computers such as the XPS 15 7500 “Fiorano”, the XPS 17 7700 “Stradale”, and a dual-screen machine with the codename “Maximus”.

A revealing leaked roadmap that comes from Dell has been posted online by Tweakers. A total of 13 devices are listed on the roadmap, which dates back to February 2018. The leaked information once again confirms that there is an XPS 15 (7590) on the way that will offer 8-core Coffee Lake-H Refresh processors and a GeForce 1650.

More interestingly, the roadmap (image below) shows a future concept Dell XPS 15 7500 with the codename “Fiorano” that could come with a Comet Lake-H processor from Intel and a GeForce GTX 1650 from Nvidia; this could end up being a 10-core XPS 15. This particular laptop might see the light of day in 2020.

Then there’s mention of a Dell XPS 17. This particular size of XPS has been missing from the family for the past few years, but although it is currently gone it seems it’s not entirely forgotten. The image displays a concept for an XPS 17 7700 “Stradale” computer that would also come with a Comet Lake-H processor and a GTX 1660 Ti GPU (Max-Q design).

If that hasn’t already got XPS fans reeling, then how about the inclusion of XPS 13 devices with Ice Lake-U processors? There is mention of both the regular laptop form factor and the 2-in-1 convertible receiving CPUs from this Intel series that will be based on a 10nm manufacturing process. This would provide the XPS 13 machines with performance boosts and improved energy efficiency.

Last but not least, there is the Dell XPS Dual Screen Maximus. No details at all are offered for this computer, apart from the obvious information stated in its name. If Dell sticks to the roadmap, we will have to wait until the second half of 2020 to get any real idea about what the Maximus is. However, this leaked roadmap is quite old, and it is has changed: For instance, the XPS 13 9380 is marked as in development for this year but has already been released.
