The XPS (Xtreme Performance System) name dates back to 1993 when Dell at that time was more focused on corporate business than consumers.Gateway was number one in the high-end consumer market.Starting 2002, Dell considered buying Alienware, but did not take any action until March 22, 2006, when it agreed to purchase the company.The new subsidiary maintained its autonomy in terms of design and marketing.It is designed for moderate to heavy gaming and high-end workstation performance.It features Intel's 6th-generation (Skylake) i5 and i7 CPUs on an LGA 1151 socket.All hardware needs a driver to work properly — think of it as a translator for the various and disparate hardware components that make up your computer.

Here's what these key software bits do for your XPS laptop and how to update them.While the XPS designation used to mean the hardware was high-end and well suited for gaming, that is no longer the case.For example, the XPS 200 is limited to extremely low-end video cards, while the XPS M140 is only configurable with Intel video, thus making both systems unsuited for gaming or high-end usage.On June 2, 2009, The M17x was introduced as the First Alienware/Dell branded system.The Dell XPS 8900 was released in October 2015 and is Dell's most recent product in the XPS line.This new product line was so far ahead of the competition that it was featured on the cover of the October 1993 issue of PC Computing.
