Dell Launches New Powerhouse, Liquid Cooled XPS Desktop PC

Dell has launched what it is calling the most powerful XPS Desktop computer it has ever made. It is packed with 12-gen Intel processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series or AMD GPUs, and is the first XPS to be liquid-cooled.

Dell says that the new XPS Desktop is a heavy hitter that is cloaked in an understated design and made for creators and gamers alike. It features the new 12th-generation Intel processors (up to i9) along with what Dell describes as the most impressive graphics options available with either NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series (up to the 3090) or the AMD Radeon RRX (up to the 6900 XT) GPUs. It also has next-generation DDR5 memory that supports up to 50% faster clock speed than DDR4 as well as is PCIe Gen5 graphics ready.

Below is a photo that shows the size difference between the previous XPS and this latest version:

For those unfamiliar with DDR5 and what makes it better than DDR4, Linus Tech Tips very recently published a video that explains, in detail, what to expect:

The highest-end hardware available will be the 12th Generation Intel Core i9 12900K (16 Core, 30 MB Cache, 3.2 GHz to 5.2 GHz with Turbo Boost Max 3.0), 128 GB 4×32 GB DDR5 3600 MHz memory, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 24GB GDDR6x or AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB GDDR6, and 2TB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD with the option to pair it with a 2TB 7200 RPM SATA HDD.

To maximize performance, Dell says its engineers architectured the device to soften acoustics through improved airflow. The front bezel of the chassis is designed to intake cool air and move it to the back, and the company says that the XPS Desktop is 21% cooler under load or up to 18% cooler under load with liquid cooling when compared to a 125W cooling solution or 125W thermal solution respectively.

On that liquid cooling note, Dell says that it is the first time that such a cooling system has been integrated into an XPS Desktop as an option. Additionally, the new desktop should be at least 50% quieter under load than previous generations thanks to new high RPM fans (up to 5,000 RPM) that operate more efficiently at slower speeds.

The new XPS Desktop case comes in two colors, either “Night Sky” black or “Platinum Silver”, and Dell says its team chose the finish based on testing various textures and colors with the goal of making it look less like a PC and more like a “natural and authentic object” that “fits harmoniously” into a space. This means there are fewer access ports that would be distracting, apparently.

Objectively, though, it still looks like a computer, just not an onstentatious one. On the note of ports, the Dell XPS Desktop features a built-in SD card reader, headphone jack, three USB-A 3.2 ports, and one USB-C Gen 2×2 port on the front of the device, and gigabit ethernet and 7.1 channel audio 6-connector on the back, at a minimum. Final port selection differs depending on graphics card choice. Below is a shot of the back of the computer which shows additional USB ports as well:

Dell will offer the XPS Desktop in multiple configurations, including a “Creator Edition” designed for photographers that simplify the choices and are pre-selected with what Dell says is optimal for a specific workload.

The Dell XPS Desktop will begin shipping later this fall with Windows 11 (either Home or Pro edition) and will start at $920, though that price is sure to go up based on what hardware options photographers will want to include.

Unleashed ’22 is an All-In-One Photo and Video Remote Camera Module

Unleashed ’22 claims to be the Swiss army knife of camera accessories: a small camera module that allows remote triggering of photos and videos, offers control of long exposures and time-lapses, geotagging, and more, all controlled by an app.

Currently seeking backong on Kickstarter by Berlin-based hardware company Foolography, Unleashed ’22 is the successor to the company’s previous product, the Unleashed ’18 which was successfully backed in 2016.

The original idea for Unleashed arose back in 2006 when Foolography’s founder Oliver Perialis was searching for a solution to easily geotag his travel photos but couldn’t find a viable product on the market. After building prototypes of a Bluetooth module for geotagging for himself and his friends, the product attracted interest online and at Photokina 2008, moving him to mass-produce his device and found Foolography.

Now compatible with more than 144 cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, and Panasonic, Unleashed ’22 comes packed in a tiny body that directly plugs into the camera and connects to the user’s phone via Bluetooth. By using the Unleashed mobile app, users can then gain full control over the camera.

Foolography has designed the module to stay on the camera at all times, thanks to its flat profile and the fact it doesn’t need to be charged and instead is powered by the camera’s battery. Because most of the work is done within the device itself, not the app, Unleashed will continue to control the camera to finish the shot even if the app is closed, if the user walks out of range, or the phone battery dies.

The app allows users to remotely trigger photos and video recording, manually change the camera settings without touching the camera, control direct in-camera geotagging, shoot long exposures — timed up to 4.5 hours — and capture timelapses.

Unleashed also has a setting that will adjust the shutter speed by the right number of stops when adding or removing ND filters. For time-lapse shooters, the app allows flexible intervals which helps achieve short intervals during the day and longer second exposures for starry nights.

Aside from camera control, the app can also be used to review photos in a high-resolution gallery and share the images straight from the app. When the high-resolution previews are downloaded, Unleashed adds the EXIF data of the original image, which also helps filter photos on a map in the “Places” album on the app.

Because the new Unleashed model is compatible with 144 models, an improvement from the predecessor, the company will have 7 different models and cables to offer, which are all designed to suit each camera.

Unleashed ’22 is estimated to ship on December 2022 and can be backed on Kickstarter starting from $150 on the campaign page.
