Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Getting Gpu Upgrade Anytime Soon?

Feb 20, 2010

Is the Dell Studio XPS 16 getting a graphics card upgrade anytime soon? I'm thinking about buying one soon, I really like 'em but the graphics card is the slowest thing in it for me. I know it's a multimedia laptop, not a gaming laptop but cmon now. On Dell's page, GAMING is the biggest keyword for this laptop. ATI HD 4670 is last gen and DX 11 is upon us. Competitor HP Envy 15 is already using the HD 5830. So can we expect a graphics card upgrade anytime soon from Dell?

Dell :: Refresh On Studio XPS Anytime Soon

Aug 19, 2009

I've been thinking of getting a Studio XPS 16.

However, before I buy one I want to know if there's been any word on dell refreshing the CPU or chipset on this model? I would rather wait 6 months to buy a new laptop than to buy it and have a newer model come out.

It's been a while since I kept up with the latest mobile processors and chipsets. I found a powerpoint presentation that indicated Intel would release the T9900 in the second half of 2009, but not sure if this would also include new chipset.

Dell :: Are Adding A ATI 4XXX GPU Is The Studio XPS Anytime

Mar 11, 2009

iv notived that the studio 15 (1555) is getting a upgrade soon and a slight design change, and maybe the 17" studio too. the studio 15" is getting the 4570 soon and maybe the studio will get a better one too.

so will the studio ps get a new GPU too?

it would be amusing to see a low budget 15" multimedia laptop perform near dells high end gaming/multimedia made for performance and quality.

also even more funny to see a studio 17" maybe beat it.

i find it stupid how only MSI have started using the 4XXX ATI cards when they are so good.

some companies are on 3XXX still, its been like over ayears and a half now.

the FW wont get a 4XXX GPU and i need a upgrade now at my pc is a pain.

Dell :: We'll Never See A 8800 Decent Performer Anytime Soon

Jul 15, 2007

You look at the wattage of the desktop versions of the cards and its insane. 165 watts for the 8800 gtx. [url]

the 7xxx cards didn't drain anywhere close to that much, the 78xx around 90watts peak and the 79xx 80watts.[url]

Nvidia and ATI have both been criticized for their lack of performance per watt in their dx10 cards over any previous generation, and its seems to be directly turning around in the mobile market.

It seems they can try and severely limit the stream processors (32 in 8700m gt compared to 128 in 8800gtx) and the memory bandwidth to compensate on a technology that is just built on power consumption.

And of course, even if notebooks can give that much AC power, the problem of heat still remains. People may be waiting for nothing, at least not in the near future until the next round of nvidia cards are released (maybe the jump from 88xx to 89xx will provide much more power savings than 78xx to 79xx) and allow dx10 tech to truly hit the mobile market.

corrected 8700m gt processors

Acer :: Vista Clean Install (Anytime Upgrade Disc)

Jan 28, 2009

Has anyone done this on an Acer laptop? I recently bought a 5515 for my parents and after seeing all the bloatware that came on it I figured I'd do a clean OS install. I backed up the CD Key using the ABR utility and backed up all the drivers. I then started the new OS install and get all the way to "completing installation" and it sits there spinning for a good 20-30 mins before it freezes. I tried the 32 bit version first followed by the 64 bit and had no luck either try. I eventually reinstalled the factory settings using the recovery disc.

Dell :: Updating My Beloved XPS

Apr 12, 2009

I'm a bit embarassed to bring this post to the forum as looking down the list nobody's posting about these lappies these days!

Basically, my hard drive's full of stuff I don't want to delete (or move to external), my dvd writer needs a paperweight to keep it closed up and the keyboard is like it has glue under the keys!

So, I can't afford to replace it at the moment and I still love the screen and the occasional Doom3 etc (sad I know). I've done some research here - but would appreciate some guidance on which bits to buy.

The drive - I know it's got to be PATA(?) but which drive should I aim for if any? Also, will all the PATA 2.5" drives fit, do I take the bits off the existing one to put on the new? Is there a limitation on the amount of hard drive memory the system will recognise?

Dell :: Updating BIOS And Drivers

Jan 28, 2010

My new studio 15 (1555) arrived today and the instructions advised to update the computer with the latest Bios and drivers.

I followed the instructions and all was going well (I could see various things being downloaded) until my son clicked on a window that had popped up (believe it was from McAfee) and the computer switched off.

I went back to the Dell support to ascertain if everything had been downloaded properly and attempted to download the files again unfortunately I kept getting a message that no files have been selected .....

Dell :: Novice Updating 1525 Drivers, Bios Etc

Jan 6, 2010

Thing is I don't think that the previous owners updated anything... ever... lol and I was wondering if, for instance bios updates are like Windows service pack updates in that they are cumulative?

I went to the Dell download site and it had 17 driver updates for this service tag. The original bios version for this machine was v.09, I did the update and it's is now v.17 - but the question is, should I have done a bunch in between somehow?

On their website Dell says the v17 bios update just changes the pre-charge timeout from 2 to 6 hours (whatever that means lol) and what I'd like to know is have I missed better - as in more useful - bios features by not doing all the bios updates that must have come between my original v.09 and the current v.17? .....

Dell :: When Updating The Studio To Windows 7 Audio Drivers

Nov 2, 2009

When updating to Windows 7 the audio drivers look like the right ones for the studio 15 or any with the IDT,

it is not it is generic and you will need the updated driver from the Dell support site, it adds the surround and bass that will be missing and I noticed a big difference.

Dell :: XPS 1730 Line (Next?)

Sep 8, 2009

I have been a SUPER happy customer with my M1730. I originally owned an XPS Gen 2 (way back in the day). My question is, are they going to make a new successor to M1730? It's been a while, I've seen DELL come out with the new lower XPS line (13/16). Also now with the Adamo. However, I see no mention of further XPS 17XX. Have they discontinued it?

I know they purchased Alienware, but I just don't like Alienware, it looks a little to geeky for me.

If they took the M1730 and just upgraded the board so we could get the 1333Mhz RAM + G270M Video card + QuadCore (However, I'm pretty happy with my X9000)

Trying to use Dell Financing to get a laptop and had a question.

Dell has 12 months no payment for "Studio Performance" laptops. I cannot find the perrformance line. Is this the same as the regular Studio 15 and 17 line?

They also have 12 months no payments for Sudio XPS and XPS but they are a bit out of my price range.

Dell :: When Will Release CENTRINO 2 Line

Sep 12, 2008

I purchased a Dell Inspiron 9200 in Janaury 2005. It has been an excellent laptop since day #1, but an upgrade is now in order!

Can ANYBODY have a clue as to when Dell will release laptops based on the new CENTRINO 2 line? I'd love to buy another Dell, but if they don't plan on upgrading the hardware soon, then I'll have to go to another brand.

Dell :: Refresh Of Studio XPS Line? When?

Mar 21, 2010

Well im currently using the Dell XPS M1330 since 2008 let me say it has been awesome! The only problem has been the battery which has been dead since early February I believe so I have been operating using the adapter.

The dead battery is still in the laptop.

However, now my idle temps are over 75 c and often over 80 c, so im thinking about selling this in fact I will be selling this shortly. Especially given the fact that the warranty ran out in February of this year.

Anyhow, im wondering if the XPS line will be refreshed in 2010 and when can we expect some new XPS models.

I only purchase my computers from Best Buy and currently they really do not have anything which really grabs me

Dell :: S-XPS 1640 And 1645 Bottom Line!

Feb 3, 2010

The bottom line is that this laptops are not worthy to buy!

1. Throttling Issue (No real fix so far)
2. Random freezing (Speculations about driver fix)
3. Brightness control stops working randomly (remove batery to fix)
4. Sub-buffer rattles (nobody knows why)
5. Stereo leaks between left and right (no fix)
6. System runs extremely hot (1645 a little bit less than 1640)

All-in-all nice looking and feature complete laptop with a lot of issues.

Dell :: Did Drop The Ball On The New Precision Line

Feb 16, 2009

new precisin line (M4400 and M6400).

Most of them are solvable, but they require some effort.

A bit disappointing since I wish dell had come out with their top precision line which worked flawlessly "out of the box". Precision laptops have some great hardware and I would like to see dell kicking MBPs butt.

So, did drop the ball on the precision line ? Should it demand more from the device driver development team ?

Dell :: Inspiron 1520, Line 6 USB & HD Speed?

Feb 5, 2009

I have a 1520, 2Ghz Duo, 2.5 Gb Ram, running XP.....I also have a Line6 Guitarport USB audio interface. When I use this the audio often drops out a lot, especially when acessing the hard drive - what can I do about this? -

it's a 5400RPM drive - will upgrading to a 7200RPM improve things? It seems something is effecting the USB data stream.

The hard drive I have is a WDC WD1200BEVS-75UST 120GB

Also, is the drive running in SATA mode - when using HD tune it says:
Standard: ATA/ATAPI-8 - SATA I

Supported: UDMA Mode 6 / ATA/133
Active: UDMA MODE 5 ATA/100
