Description

There is a total number of 9 USB ports available on the Dell XPS 8950 Desktop, one less than the Dell XPS 8940 Desktop that has 10 USB ports. On top of the number of USB ports, the type and version of each USB port are also necessary for determining how fast it is. Designed to stay quiet: The XPS Desktop was designed to blend into your environment, whether that be a family room, office or kitchen, you can be assured your desktop will stay quiet, even when it’s performing at its highest. The desktop uses high RPM fans, with a maximum system fan speed of 4500 rpm to more efficiently cool. Fans can run slower, therefore at lower acoustics. Despite the small size, Dell was able to squeeze a full-length GPU in our review unit. The graphics card occupies both the PCIe x16 slot and the expansion slot for dual-width graphics cards — but upgrading to anything beyond an RTX 3070 may be futile. The desktop can also accommodate additional PCIe x1 and PCIe x4 cards.

The XPS Desktop Special Edition was predictably behind the Corsair and HP towers. However, it matched the MSI and its GeForce RTX 2080 Ti with its GeForce RTX 3070. The latter is an excellent all-around performer for any kind of gaming.

Ports & Slots

This article provides help with Microsoft Office programs, A Guide to the various Microsoft Office programs available on your Dell PC. There are a couple limitations with this desktop. The first is that although the 500-watt PSU is sufficient for this class of graphics, upgrading the PSU for more powerful graphics will be challenging. DIYers will be limited by the available space for the PSU at the bottom of the case. But the bigger problem is Dell’s use of a proprietary 6-pin connector for power on the motherboard. This means that if you want more powerful graphics, you’ll need to resort to an external PSU and have to snake cables to the inside of the case as an inelegant workaround. We’ll start with POV-Ray 3.7 for CPU assessment. This test uses ray tracing to render a three-dimensional image. (Note that it doesn't use the ray tracing features of Nvidia's GeForce RTX-class GPUs; this is purely CPU-focused.)

The Dell XPS 8940 comes with ten USB ports in total. Having more USB ports is always better, but also pay attention to the version of those USB ports. Higher version ports support faster transfer speeds. It is nice to see that the model has a USB 3.1 port. This interface is using 10Gb/s connection and it's very useful when you transfer big files to external drives. Video ports

Intelligently and purposefully designed

Performance headroom: The XPS Desktop PSU options allow for better performance upgrades during the life of your system. The 360W PSU supports a 65W processor plus up to 150W graphics. Now let’s put the XPS Desktop Special Edition on the test bench. I pitted it against the following towers for our benchmarking comparisons.
