Dell Introduces New XPS 710 H2C Gaming System, 27- and 22-Inch Widescreen Flat-Panel Monitors, and a Home Media Suite.

LAS VEGAS -- Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) added a high-performance desktop to its portfolio of XPS[TM] products, and introduced two new widescreen flat-panel displays and a Digital Home Media Suite, here today at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Details and availability of the new products are provided below. More information, including high-resolution images, is available at www.dell.com/ces2007news.

Dell XPS 710 H2C Edition Gaming Desktop

The XPS 710 H2Ceramic (H2C) Edition desktop comes in a midnight-black chassis and offers patent-pending cooling technology designed for serious gamers who want to push performance beyond tested limits.Dell developed the H2C design to better cool the processor, extend its life and help the system run more reliably than conventional cooling systems even when the system is overclocked. The Intel quad-core processor is factory overclocked1 for extreme gaming and video editing, and backed by specialized XPS technicians.

Dell's H2C cooling system is a custom two-stage process. First, a liquid-to-air heat exchanger that works like a car's radiator removes most of the heat from the processor. Then, a fluid chiller removes more heat with ceramic-based thermoelectric cooling (TEC) modules like those used in space shuttles to transfer heat from the sunny side to the cold, dark side in space. Sensor controls help prevent the formation of frost or condensation by helping to keep the processor slightly above ambient room temperature.

The XPS 710 H2C Edition starts at $5,499 and is available worldwide. The base configuration includes:

* Factory-installed Dell H2C two-stage cooling solution including a fan, liquid-to-air heat exchanger, TEC fluid chiller, and circuitry that regulates the fan and TEC voltage to cool the processor efficiently during normal and over-clocked operation

Dell Tech Support will verify the full functionality of the CPU at the factory default setting and support the CPU performance settings available within the system BIOS. Dell does not provide technical support for any hardware or software issues arising from any third party application, such as NVIDIA nTune 5.0, used to enable overclocking.

3 For hard drives, GB means 1 billion bytes and TB equals 1 trillion bytes; actual capacity varies with preloaded material and operating environment and will be less. On Dimension, XPS, and Inspiron systems, for Norton Ghost 10, Norton 7 Restore and Dell DataSafe users, up to 25% of the stated hard drive capacity may be utilized by your system as dedicated backup space.
