Dell XPS 8500 Desktop PC Announced

Dell introduced the XPS 8500 high-performance desktop PC, featuring 3rd generation Intel quad-core processors, also known as Ivy Bridge, and the latest discrete graphics for professionals who demand high-performance technology.

The XPS 8500 desktop PC, which replaces the XPS 8300, delivers a superb user experience for creatives who demand uncompromising performance, whether composing music, working on graphics-intensive design, creating and editing various multimedia, or playing games. The desktop features a premium fit and finish in a compact chassis without sacrificing future expandability.

The desktop features 3rd generation Intel Core i5 and i7 quad-core processor options, powerful performance graphics options from NVIDIA and AMD, USB 3.0 for fast data transfer, mSATA solid-state drive options for fast application load and boot-up times, and large storage and memory capacity with options up to 3TB 7200RPM hard drives and options up to 16GB 1600MHz memory.

The high-end configurations feature the powerful AMD HD 7870 discrete graphics card with 2GB memory and gives you the power to breeze through intense video and photo editing applications. To ensure the system doesn't get slowed down elsewhere, the XPS 8500 currently provides the option of 16GB DDR3 memory, and will support up to 32GB support in future.

The XPS 8500 is also available with solid-state disk (SSD) drive options for even faster performance. Dell offers either a 32GB or 256GB SSD add-on drive, which uses Intel's Smart Response Technology (SRT) — a caching technology which makes the boot process faster and helps load applications quicker.
