    Re: Dell updates XPS and Alienware desktops with Alder Lake CPUs

    Given recent benchmarking deception, Intel perhaps ought to makes amends, by rebranding the current CPUs as 'Older Lake'?

    If only the world of marketing was so brutally honest!

    To be fair their business computers are very good. The parts are non standard, but for a company machine it wouldn't be you fixing it, Dell fix it, so what does that matter.

    I wouldn't touch their consumer stuff with a barge pole though, and it has been that way for decades.

    Last time I had a Dell pre-built come my way was when they were using non-standard 12v power rails for their system so if you used a non-dell PSU you blew out the mobo...

    Never again and would never recommend to a non-enterprise user.

    Re: Dell updates XPS and Alienware desktops with Alder Lake CPUs

    After watching the GN YT reviews; even with the budget I would avoid buying a PC from a big OEM.

    By incorporating non industry standard components, as highlighted in the reviews,effectively mean you are buying landfill from the off.

    Notably missing is the mention of DDR5 in these systems, it shouldn't be assumed as Alder Lake can work with DDR4 too.

    They state DDR5 in the link included in the Hexus article.
