Dell to deliver Intel 8th-gen PCs, mixed reality "Visor"

You knew it was coming, and so did we: now that Intel has announced its new processors are on the way, manufacturers are talking about a change in their line-up. In another key development, Dell has announced numerous crucial updates to its XPS (XPS 13) and Inspiron systems. The line is marketed as having a small footprint, standard FHD 10-point touch IPS display and optional 4K UHD IPS touch display.

Next is the more impressive hybrid, the 7000 2-in-1, and with this update the laptop-tablet hybrid refresh will offer improvements to both the 13 and 15 inch versions, updating both to get those new Intel goods. The 13-inch version also offers Windows Hello biometric login via fingerprint.

Finally, Dell is refreshing its Inspiron 5000 2-in-1s with eighth-generation processors from Intel. There's also a change to the XPS 13 we reviewed earlier in the year, as well.

The Dell Visor will be available to preorder sometime next month during September 2017 and a set of optional motion controllers have also been created that will be available to purchase separately priced at $100.

Those were, however, fairly expected announcements.

Similar to Acer's Mixed Reality HMD, the Dell Visor is a tethered headset (USB and HDMI cable) that connects to a Windows PC (with at least the baseline specifications) and features inside-out 6DoF tracking; the headset doesn't require external cameras or lighthouses to track its position in space. While the company has described Visor as a mixed-reality headset, it has notably shown only the VR capabilities of the wearable as of now, as pointed out in a separate report by The Verge.

The Dell Visor features two 90Hz 1440 x 1440 LCD panels (for a total resolution of 2880 x 1440) that can "flip up" to let you see the real world around you without completely removing the headset.

Other Dell Visor extras include a thumbwheel for adjusting the headset to any skull size, and an anti-stain coating that keeps the Dell Visor clean.
