In addition to the Intel roadmap for its upcoming processors, there has been another leak, this time for Dell’s range of XPS laptops.
According to the roadmap (via Tweakers), Dell is working on several XPS models, including 13-inch, 15-inch, 17-inch and even a dual screen version, which is codenamed “Maximus”.
The Dell XPS 13 itself is expected to have three variants, codenamed “Italia”, “Modena” and “Centenario”. The Italia, aka XPS 13 7390 will use Intel’s 14nm Comet Lake U CPUs while the Modena and Centenario will be based on the 10nm Ice Lake U chips. These are expected to be made available starting late 2019.
As for the 15-inch XPS laptops (codenamed “Fiorano”), they will make use of the Comet Lake H chips, coupled with NVIDIA’s GTX 1660. It is expected to come out sometime in 2020.
The Dell XPS 17, codenamed “Stradale” is expected around mid 2020 and will be powered by Intel Comet Lake H CPUs and GTX 1660 Ti MaxQ graphics. This one is particularly interesting as it’s been about 3 years since Dell released a 17-inch model for the XPS.
The most interesting thing, however, is the dual screen XPS, codenamed “Maximus”, which is slated for a late 2020 release in the roadmap. Apart from that, there are no more details regarding this device. Keep in mind, though, this roadmap is about a year old, so there may be changes regarding the line up and release schedule, especially with the 10nm Ice Lake chips getting delayed. Nevertheless, stay tuned for further updates!
