Free upgrade to Windows 11 when available (see below for details*). Crafted with an 11th generation Intel i7 processor, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, 16GB RAM and a 1TB hard disk drive, along with a 512GB solid state drive – just to make things even quicker, this powerful PC will take your gaming sessions to the next level.

Intel Core i7
With an Intel Core i7 processor, your device will easily handle day-to-day tasks such as work assignments, coursework or browsing the net. Power hungry programs like image manipulation and video editing software will see processing times reduced, enabling better productivity.

The 11th generation i7-11700 processor in this model features 16MB of cache and 8 cores that can adjust their speed depending on the complexity of the task they are working on, from 2.50GHz to 4.90GHz.

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 equipment. RAM is used by your device 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.

Featuring 16GB of RAM, this computer is comfortable running lots of complex tasks at once, and you won't see any obvious lag or slowdown.

Storage options
This device features a 1TB hard disk drive (HDD) for storage of media and programmes and a 512GB solid state drive (SSD) for your everyday programmes, files and media. SSD are renowned for how quickly they access data.

GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU
NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics processing unit will provide next-gen gaming performance, thanks to enhanced 2nd generation Ray Tracing Cores and 3rd generation Tensor Cores. You’ll be able to play all the latest titles without worrying about the settings, whilst providing enough grunt for you to enjoy smooth, quality VR experiences (VR headset sold separately). The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is DirectX 12 Ultimate compatible.

DirectX 12 Ultimate
DirectX 12 Ultimate is the latest version of the API (written Q1 2021), and is able to take your games to a whole new level of realism, thanks to supporting ray tracing, mesh shaders, variable rate shading, and sampler feedback.

Connecting your other devices
The Ethernet and USB ports allow for fast data transfer, whilst the HDMI port enables the option for large screen presentations. The SD card slot offers a convenient way to upload your photos and videos.

Wireless communication
Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect the Dell XPS to the internet. Bluetooth will let you send files and folders wirelessly between Bluetooth devices, or even stream music to compatible speakers or headphones.
