    Phoronix: Dell XPS 13 9380 + Intel Core i7 8565U Ubuntu Linux Performance Benchmarks

    At the end of January, Dell announced the Dell XPS 13 9380 Developer Edition laptop as an upgraded version of the XPS 9370 with now having Intel Whiskey Lake CPUs and other minor improvements. Over the past two weeks I've been testing out the Dell XPS 9380 with Intel Core i7 8565U processor with 256GB of NVMe SSD storage and 16GB of RAM. Here are benchmarks of the Dell XPS 9380 compared to several other laptops running Ubuntu Linux as well as looking at the system thermal and power consumption among other metrics.

    Easy of maintenance, upgrades, not a single adapter needed on this puppy (unless you have USB type C only peripherals), cool temps, etc.

    Of course, people too sensitive to aesthetics will try to burn it, for not to be as thin as a piece of paper.
    Replaceable and large battery!!! I thought that was not a thing anymore but apparently I'm wrong. That's awesome!

    If they removed that 2.5" SATA SSD taking up 25% of the space, replaced that with a even larger battery, added USB-C charging and made smaller bezels that would be an awesome device.

    Also, except for that battery pack in the back it's actually quite thin. Maybe not compared to the new MacBooks, but thin enough.

    I’m using a broadwell-era HP Spectre x360, and it’s still fantastic and gets me great battery life.
    Well I have an HP ENVY with the AMD Ryzen chip and have to say performance isn’t an issue. It has taken far too long to get fully supportted and bugs remain but if you overlook those issues this is a great little laptop.

    My my personal opinion is that having four cores and a good GPU have more todo with apparent performance than single core performance. At least it does considering the way I use the machine. I seldom have to deal with GUI lag or outright stalls like I see on my laptop at work.

    That's some pretty good hardware design right there.

    Won't attract chics, but none will feel like stealing it either.

    Now if only they released a version of the XPS 15 9570 without the DGPU (or nvidia fixes optimus on linux) and the same i7. That thing would be a Linux beast.

    Those laptops and configurations do not suck. And the default 2 year warranty is very nice. Thanks for sharing this!

    Sounds like a good laptop, though obviously not worth upgrading from the 9370.

    Not noisy, at least nothing abnormal compared to any other recent laptop I've been around.
