Dell Introduces Quad-Core Gaming PC XPS 710
Dell has announced two new high-performance technology platforms for gamers and enthusiasts, the companyís most powerful and expandable consumer desktop and its first 30-inch widescreen flat panel monitor featuring 92 percent color gamut.

The Dell XPS 710 can be built to order with the new Intel Core2 Extreme QX6700 quad-core processor option, which the company says can deliver up to 55 percent better performance than an Intel Core 2 Extreme dual-core processor. The XPS 710ís performance enables customers to run multi-threaded games or multimedia applications, high-definition video, or simultaneously watch movies and stream music from the same PC.

The XPS 710 comes with four memory slots, bays for four hard drives (Dell will install up to three) and two optical drives, and seven expansion slots for single and dual graphics cards and hi-fi sound.

The latest addition to Dellís line of flat panel monitors, the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC features 92 percent color gamut. Currently most monitors feature color gamut covering 72 percent of the NTSC color space.

Additional features of the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC include 2,560 x 1,600 (WQXGA) resolution, 8-millisecond typical response time, height-adjustable stand with tilt and swivel capabilities, integrated 9-in-2 media card reader, and four USB 2.0 ports for connecting devices such as digital cameras and printers.

The new system is Microsoft Windows Vista Premium-Ready and is part of Dellís Express Upgrade program, that will provide upgrade option for consumers when Microsoft Windows Vista is released.

The XPS 710 is available immediately worldwide, with prices starting at US$3,699 for the Jet Black chassis with an Intel Core 2 Extreme Q6700 processor, 750-watt power supply and two-year limited XPS warranty. The Special Edition Formula Red model with 1-kilowatt power supply and the same processor and warranty support starts at US$3,799.

Dell expects to offer the Dell UltraSharp 3007WFP-HC as an option on select XPS configurations later this quarter in the U.S. Prices for the standalone monitor will start at US$1,699.
