Intel's new high-end portable processors are not just for people who like to identify themselves aesthetically as players. Dell is introducing the new six-core H-series CPU in a slight update to its popular XPS 15 form factor. The entry-level model starts at $ 999 with integrated graphics and the Core i5-8300H CPU, but can scale up to a Core i9 processor, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics (the latest generation reached a maximum of 1050) and 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD.
As with the existing XPS 15 models, a 56WHr battery is obtained in the low range, but a 97WHr battery comes standard in the higher end models. Dell claims that you can get up to 21.5 hours of battery life in one of these laptops, which is not bad for a 15-inch laptop with 4K screen.

The shape factor was basically not modified with respect to the previous models, so there is still this strange location of the webcam, but PCWorld notes that the Thunderbolt 3 port has been increased to four PCIe lanes instead of two, for what a small change.
Pre-orders for XPS 15 9570 will be available on April 16.
