    I'm guessing the same thing. I dont think they are going to use Nvidia this year.

    Nice laptop but not exactly a direct replacement for the current model lineup. More a shift to a 2 in 1 thin and light to compete with HP and Lenovo products. I'm not so sure about the selective benchmarks against the 1060 either? We're giving up an additional two cores for the on chip Vega solutions. Nothing wrong with it but I perceive the current XPS to be a bit of a powerful multimedia laptop bordering on the workstation class, hence it's near identical sister precision model.

    Interesting... This cherry-picked data implies the Vega M might perform decently in the real world. But my gut tells me not quite up to the new crop of nVidia GPUs with 8700HQ processors...

    All for new solutions given the Kaby Lake XPS15's cooling/power "challenges". But I'll wait for others to beta test this one.

    So NotebookCheck reported the XPS15 (9570) will not be released until later this year.

    The 9575 (new 15" 2-in-1) has no USB-A port!

    The 9575's 65 watt Core i7-8705G can run max 4.1ghz on one core! Not sure how long for before throttliing lol. For CPU intensive chores, I wonder if power to the GPU can be ramped down to say 10 watts and say 55 watts sent to the CPU only. And vice-versa...

    Frank Azor mentioned that they won't have news of the XPS 15 until April or May. So I wouldn't expect it any time soon. Just curious, why would you want a AW15 if you do not plan on doing any GPU intensive gaming?

    I had the AW 15 r1 980m / 4k and gave it to my brother as a Christmas present. Worked well for me for about 3 years.

    Torn between XPS 15 and AW 15. I dont do much of the FPS gaming stuff so I probably do not need a true gaming laptop. I usually do Civ/Cities Skylines/Transport Fever which I believe are heavier on the CPU than the GPU

    but June?! that is like 6 months for me without a lappy.

    Well, if you don't mind the gamer-looks of the AW15, but you still want something as portable as the XPS 15. Maybe something like the Gigabyte Aero 15 / Aero15X is something for you?
