Ever since the company was founded in 1984, Dell has been putting out quality personal computers that could be customized by consumers. One of the most popular series of desktops over the past 3+ decades has been the XPS. Today, the series continues with reliable desktops such as the Dell XPS Tower, which has high-performance graphics and as much memory as you need for doing your favorite tasks and running all of your applications.
There are a couple of options available for this series, including the regular XPS 8910 tower and the Special Edition version. The newer models are designed to be 27% smaller than their predecessors. Regardless of which version you buy, you can expect to have a glossy black tower that is easy to access and upgrade. Thanks to a swing-out power supply unit, you get fast and easy access to the inside of the tower. Upgrade and expand hardware such as the storage drive and video card to meet your specific computing requirements.
Some models of the tower, including the Special Edition version, can be upgraded with hardware that makes it VR-ready.
These are built to be silent machines – even when running at full load. The tower stays quiet, thanks to thermally controlled fans.
Here is an overview of some of the specs you can expect with a Dell DPS Tower:
• 6th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor
• 4 DIMM slots for memory (speed 2133-MHz) with support for 8GB up to 64GB
• Wi-Fi 802.11 wireless technology (b/g/n and ac are both available) and optional Bluetooth 4.0
• Intel HD Graphics (530) integrated graphics or your choice of various NVIDIA GT or GTX discrete cards. Some configurations are compatible with AMD Radeon R9 370.
• Multiple 3.5-inch hard drives as well as M.2 for SSD for storage
• Optional optical drive
Connectivity of the Dell XPS Tower
If you order your tower with a discrete graphics card, note that the HDMI port on the back panel will be covered. You will have to thus connect your display to the graphics card itself, which will come with its own connectivity.
There are also USB ports, including 3.0 ports, 3.1 ports and a 3.1 Type-C port, which will allow you to connect the desktop to devices such as printers and external storage drives. You will find an L/R surround line-out put on both the front and the rear. This is for connecting audio-output devices like amps and speakers.
This is a pretty popular computer series. There are many Dell XPS Tower reviews from owners who are happy with its quiet operation, support for discrete graphics, memory expandability, etc.
