Dell has just released its new Studio XPS 7100 series of Desktop computers. Quad cores and/or hexa-cores processors from AMD power the new XPS 7100 series of Desktop computers. The base model of the XPS 7100 starts from $499. The XPS 7100 series of Desktops uses the latest DDR3 RAM for better performance.
The total RAM on the XPS 7100 is upgradeable to 16GB DDR3, and the storage space can be increased to 1.5TB. The graphics card options include either the inbuilt ATI HD 4200 or the HD5450 or the HD 5770 or the top of the line HD 5870 graphics card with 1 GB of graphics memory. A Blu-Ray drive, along with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are also optional. The top-of-the-line XPS 7100 features an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor along with an ATI HD 5870 with 1 GB of memory. The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processor is meant only for OEMs, and will never hit the retail market.
It is nice to see Dell selling computers using processors from AMD. This will help in increasing the market share of AMD in a market, which is dominated by Intel. Keep in mind that the total pricing does not include the price of a LCD monitor. Users need to pay separately for a LCD monitor.
