New Dell Coupon Code: Extra 12% off Dell XPS Gaming Computer with Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM and RTX 30 Series Video Card

UpdateThere is now a coupon code with 12% off: “save 12″ Works on the new Dell XPS Alder Lake RTX 30 gaming PCs. This additional discount is exclusive to Dell Prime Day and will not last.

Previously, Dell’s only PC option was an Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30-series in the form of the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming computer. At a cost of around $2900 to list the Intel Core i7 RTX 3080, it’s a bit out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has expanded similar build options to its new Dell XPS gaming PCs 2021-2022.

I’ve recently been building a new Intel PC for myself and have been amazed at the cost of some of these new components. Right now, both Intel and NVIDIA hold the titles of the best gaming CPU and GPU on the market, but getting their hands on their products can be a nightmare. By now we should all know how hard it is to get an RTX 30 series video card at retail. It is practically impossible to connect to the Internet. On eBay, the RTX 3080 video retails for over $1,600 (if you forget, the MSRP for the RTX 3080 starts at $700). Your best bet would be to walk into a local Best Buy and hope your trip isn’t just a waste of time.

This is not even the end of it. Intel released the 12th generation Alder Lake processors, and they’ve proven to outperform the AMD Ryzen 7 and 9. The Z690 motherboard will run you at least $200 and 32GB of DDR5 RAM costs more than $400. The best option is to stick with DDR4, but there aren’t nearly as many DDR4 motherboards available and these motherboards still cost a pretty penny.

Enter Dell’s new XPS gaming PC

Compared to the previous Dell XPS chassis, this chassis is larger (27 liters vs. 19 liters) and offers more CPU and GPU space for much better airflow. This is important because the new Alder Lake processors can run hot under extreme loads. Looking forward, the new Dell XPS features a Z690 motherboard that supports the latest 12th generation Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30 series video cards via PCI-E 5.0. This proves that DDR5 RAM is indeed out in the wild. Your video card options are great, too; Choose your choice of RTX 30 series video card, from the RTX 3060 Ti all the way to the RTX 3090, just as with the Alienware Aurora R13. Maybe the best news? According to Dell’s website, these configurations ship in late February or early March.

There are usually naysayers who claim that you can build the same quality rig for a cheaper price. Provided you know how to find deals, this is certainly not far from the truth. But we live in a completely different world, and we know very well where supply and demand have eliminated price sensitivity. And we have to take time into account, too. Technology is moving so fast that the value of our computer hardware is depreciating at an alarming pace. Waiting a few months for the current generic piece is not necessarily the best option, especially if those “few months” can stretch into several months. Under the circumstances, Dell offers an incredibly powerful and stylish looking gaming machine with all the hard-to-obtain components you could hope for, at a reasonable price and time frame. The only other reasonable option is to go to AMD.
