Start Gaming With Dell’s XPS 8930 Tower

Thanks to Dell’s new XPS 8930 Tower, gamers on a budget have something to be excited about in 2018. Instead of trying to impress potential clients with a flashy design, Dell stuck to the basics. They created a computer that harnesses a surprising amount of internal power. This allows it to provide great gaming performance that can satisfy the most avid gamer. For those who want to build their own PC, this tower has a solid base for expansion.

Ironically, all this comes in a low key design. Equipped with an all black matte finish, the Dell XPS 8930 Tower is extremely unassuming. While the outside features aren’t flashy, the hardware is where the real action is at. The XPS 8930 sports powerful features that can be customized to be even faster. Starting at $1,000, this tower is too versatile to ignore.

Faced with rising prices of GPUs, towers like these are extremely enticing for gamers. To give our readers an intimate glimpse at this new release, we decided to try it out for a day. What we discovered was shocking, since the XPS 8930 kept us guessing. Explore the features of this promising release with our in-depth article!

Meet Dell’s XPS 8930 Tower

Don’t let this tower’s looks fool you.

When examining the XPS 8930, users are automatically reminded of Dell’s silver XPS Tower Special Edition. It features the same simple appearance, but this design is highlighted by a black matte finish. These clean lines highlight the fact that this tower isn’t advertised as a gaming desktop. For this reason, it doesn’t have the same extravagant aesthetics as Dell’s Inspiron Gaming Desktop.

Even though it isn’t flashy, there’s plenty to be excited about with the XPS 8930. While the outside is tame, the inner hardware is where it shines. The base model comes with 8th-gen Intel Core processors, four-core Core i3-8100, 8GB of RAM & Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060. The latter is the most exciting, since it has 6GB of GDDR5.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 allows it to handle games seamlessly. On average it held a steady 50 to 70 fps on high graphic settings. Maintaining such fluid performance on a long range of taxing games is an impressive feat. This surprising capability puts the XPS 8930 in the same league as more expensive competitors. It’s on par with the MSI Trident 3, which is completely unexpected after comparing the prices of both desktops.

The inner hardware is ready to accommodate customizations.

The best part is the XPS 8930 is ready to upgrade. For an extra $100, clients can move up to a Core i5 or drop $250 to get a Core i7. For those who crave more power, it can even be upgraded to a Radeon RX 580. On the inside there are two available slots of PCle that can accommodate expansion cards. These are flanked by two empty HDD slots. This gives users plenty of room to level up the specs as they save more money.

All these features make Dell’s new release an exciting entry-level gaming PC. The XPS 8930 delivers a refreshingly worthwhile PC for a decent price. Users aren’t stuck with the traditional hardware, so there’s plenty of room for this GPU to grow. It isn’t often that a company focuses on performance over aesthetics, so take advantage of Dell’s gaming revolution!
