Free upgrade to Windows 11 when available (see below for details*). The Dell XPS 8940 desktop PC has been created with an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB solid state drive (SSD), as well as a GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics card. This computer will be able to assist with your projects, send emails, stream films and TV shows, as well as enable some casual gaming.

Intel Core i5
With a Intel Core i5 processor, you'll easily handle day-to-day tasks like word processing, image editing, web browsing and casual gaming.

The i5-11400 processor in this model features 12MB of cache and 6 cores that can adjust their speed depending on the complexity of the task they are working on, up to 4.40GHz.

What is RAM?
RAM (Random Access Memory) is different to the permanent storage provided by hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD) or memory cards in your device. RAM is used by your computer to temporarily store data to carry out everyday operations. The more RAM your machine has, the faster you can expect it to open and run programs.

A solid performer
Featuring 8GB of RAM, this computer has enough power for casual tasks like web browsing and word processing as well as more demanding jobs like complex spread sheets and image manipulation. You'll be able to run a healthy number of windows at once without any obvious lag or slowdown.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics
NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 Super graphics processing unit (GPU) with a dedicated 4GB of RAM, will enable you to enjoy a number of classic older games, along with some casual (web-based) gaming. You may be able to run more modern titles with reduced effects and frame rates. Featuring a range of technologies, the GeForce GTX 1650 Super is DirectX 12 compatible.

Solid State Drive
Solid State Drives (SSD) give you the capacity to store your documents and media, while ensuring quicker and reliable access to your files and programs. SSDs are far faster than regular hard drives and ingeniously, they don't use moving parts to work, which makes them far more dependable and also quieter.

Packed with ports
Featuring loads of USB ports, you can be sure there is space for all your external devices to be attached. If that’s not enough, the Dell XPS 8940 also has DisplayPort and HDMI ports, so you’re all set for any multi-screen experiences.

Wireless communication
Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect the Dell XPS 8940 to the internet, whilst Bluetooth can help to beam data wirelessly between devices.
