Too much power? After checking out the Core i5 and Core i7 SKUs, we're now finally ready to benchmark the Core i9 version of the XPS 15 9570. In short, users are better off investing in more storage, RAM, or faster graphics than to plop down an additional $250+ for the Core i9-8950HK.

While Coffee Lake-H has been benchmarked and compared with Kaby Lake on this site before, the real-world performance of CPUs more than ever depends on the engineering and implementation of each system. In such a thin-and-light chassis as the XPS 15, thermal constants have traditionally left their mark in performance. The XPS 15 9570 with i7-8750H CPU, however, has performed surprisingly well in our initial tests.

Higher price, same CPU performance. The Core i5 XPS 15 9575 impressed us in terms of raw performance and graphical prowess for such a thin convertible. The Core i7 SKU performs just as well, albeit at very marginal benefits. For better or worse, the differences between the i5 and i7 SKUs are smaller than we had anticipated.
