The XPS 17 is available with up to GeForce RTX™3060 graphics.
Faster memory, more storage: Your system boots and resumes in seconds thanks to up to 8TB solid state drive storage. Multi-task in a flash even on intense applications with up to 64GB of memory at 3200MHz.
Killer™ Wireless: With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology and theoretical throughout speeds of up to 2.4 Gbps, the Killer AX1650 is nearly three times as fast as the previous generation of 80MHz 2×2 AC products. It prioritizes streaming video, communication, and game traffic in your system for fast, smooth online experiences.
Dell Power Manager: This application allows users to manage system behaviors such as acoustics (fan speeds), battery life and performance based on their preferences between quiet, performance, cool, and optimized modes. The selectable modes provided allows the user to change the power of the system. This solution, engineered by Dell, dynamically delivers the best performance form the processor, based on the mode best suited to that user, while intelligently monitoring and managing system temperatures. And with the latest Intel® Dynamic Tuning Technology, the laptop is actively changing the power of its CPU to optimize your specific workload, increasing performance when you need it.
Advanced thermal design: The XPS 17 delivers powerful performance in an incredibly thin form factor. Optional discrete graphics feature unique dual opposite outlet fans, that increase fan airflow by approximately 30% and drive cooling airflow in both directions, resulting in more airflow overall and improved skin temperatures*. A massive vapor chamber spans the entire width of the laptop providing even more heat dissipation capacity to help keep the laptop cool and achieve higher turbo power.
Create with color
Display like no other: Take full advantage of HDR content’s superior dynamic range with Dolby Vision™, which can deliver colors never before seen on SDR PC displays. Dolby Vision content can deliver highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are up to 10 times darker.

Color that pops: Equipped with 100% Adobe RGB and 94% DCI-P3 color gamut, the optional 4K UHD+ display delivers saturated colors while a 1600:1 contrast ratio you to see the brightest brights and darkest darks. And 500-nit brightness provides more clarity in bright light, like outdoors, while up to a 0.65% anti-reflective coating cuts the glare of a glossy screen.
Easy on the eyes: An Eyesafe® display reduces harmful blue light and maintains vivid color. It’s the first panel to intelligently manage light energy and the source, selectively reducing harmful blue light and dispersing it across the light spectrum.
Stellar in size

Cool and light: The black carbon fiber palm rest is inspired by the aerospace industry allowing for maximum strength and minimal weight.
Superior screen: The latest Corning® Gorilla ® Glass 6 (available on touch panel) is strong, as well as impact and scratch resistant.
Diamond-cut sidewalls: Anodizing provides a superior, scratch-resistant surface, but here, edges are dipped a second time to further prevent damage from repeated plugging and unplugging of peripherals. Using this finish on the metal achieves the perfect color without using paint, which could chip away over time.
The finest details: Stainless inlayed logos are laser cut out of a sheet of stainless steel and dropped into the machined cut outline by hand.
Elevated essentials: The XPS 17 features a massive display, a big, comfortable touchpad and a backlit keyboard with large key caps for maximum productivity.
Easier to open: The twin coil press fit hinge is designed to maximize the screen to body ratio and enable 4-sided InfinityEdge. The hinge design makes it easier to open, while staying stable when you are using the touchscreen.
Revolutionary webcam construction: The small webcam (only 2.25mm) has a 4-element lens that uses more elements than a typical webcam to deliver sharp video in all areas of the frame, while temporal noise reduction uses advanced noise reduction, significantly improving video quality, especially in dim lighting conditions. Finally, the lens is assembled with precise machinery to ensure all points of the image are in focus.
Immerse yourself in sound
Mic check: Top-mounted mics provide for a better audio experience in Skype conference calls and for far-field Cortana, allowing you to talk to your laptop from up to 14ft away.
