MacBook Air M2 vs Dell XPS 13 Plus benchmarks: Which laptop wins?

The Dell XPS 13 Plus appears to be capable of outperforming Apple’s new MacBook Air M2 in terms of raw CPU power, which means Apple silicon still faces serious competition from Intel’s new Alder Lake laptop chips.

We know this because we’re currently testing an XPS 13 Plus with an Alder Lake Intel Core i7 CPU that Dell sent us for review. That means we’ll be updating our Dell XPS 13 Plus hands-on review within the next week or so with a full evaluation of Dell’s thinner, lighter spin on an XPS 13, but some of our testing results were so intriguing that we couldn’t wait until the review to share them.
