Review: Dell Studio XPS 7100 Desktop PC

PCWorld: Review – Dell Studio XPS 7100 Desktop PC

With an AMD multi-core processor, loads of memory and a fast graphics card, this tower PC, priced from $699 (but over $1,500 for reviewed configuration), scored high on PCWorld’s benchmark tests.

“Priced at just over $1500 (as of August 1, 2010, as configured), the Dell Studio XPS 7100 is a mainstream desktop targeted at shoppers who want a PC that has enough muscle to tackle modern games and CPU-intensive tasks such as photo editing or light video editing, but that doesn’t scare off houseguests. It’s attractive, it offers a six-core AMD processor, and it bundles a few media-centric hardware extras, making for a surprisingly versatile package.

The Studio XPS 7100 packs a 2.8GHz Phenom II X6 1055T processor, 6GB of DDR3 RAM, and a capacious 1.5TB hard drive. All told, the 7100 earned a respectable score of 120 on our WorldBench 6 test suite. Its graphics performance was also quite strong: The ATI Radeon 5870 graphics card pegged a solid 88 frames per second on our Unreal Tournament 3 benchmark (2560-by-1600-pixel resolution, highest quality).”
