Dell may equip future XPS 16 laptops with AMD processors. This would be the first time since 2009 that Dell uses AMD for a variant in this laptop series. The company details these and other plans for XPS laptops the coming three years in a leaked roadmap that ended up online.

The leaked road map for the Dell XPS laptop series reveals that in 2027 the Dell XPS 16 may get an AMD processor. The codename for this variant is ‘Performante’. This would be the first time since 2009, when the tech giant equipped the budget Dell XPS 625 with an AMD Phenom II processor.
