Press release, May 23; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES Asia 0

Dell expanded its line of desktop gaming systems by introducing the XPS 720 H2C, which is designed for overclocking.

The XPS 720 H2C pushes the performance with Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) memory technology. The system ships with 800MHz Corsair DOMINATOR EPP memory modules (factory overclocked to 1066MHz) combined with Intel multi-core processors (factory overclocked up to bin+3). Additionally, BIOS switches allow users to manipulate the speed of the FSB (front side bus) and chipset through the Windows operating system and third-party applications such as Nvidia's nTune.

Systems configured with dual SLI-enabled Nvidia GeForce graphics cards will be ideally suited to take on this year's highly anticipated DirectX 10 gaming titles, as well as next-generation OpenGL titles. Hard-core multi-taskers can set up dual or even quad-display stations to combine game play with productivity applications.

With a starting price of US$5,999, the XPS 720 H2C features Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700 at 2.66GHz (factory overclocked to 3.46GHz) combined with Nvidia nForce 680i SLI MCP, 2GB 800MHz Corsair DOMINATOR DDR2 memory featuring EPP (factory overclocked to 1066MHz) and SLI-enabled dual 768MB Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards.

The XPS 720 H2C is available immediately in the US and will be available the next few weeks in Europe.
