The i7-8550U provides the XPS 13 with an excellent performance boost over the i7-7500U. In applications where more cores are preferred, the double cores of the 8550U show their strength. However, it does seem that when frequency matters, such as in games, and more than one core is used, the 7500U is actually slightly better.

 

We see this in games when all two or four cores are being stressed all the way, and that is where the 8550U has a lower clock speed. However, the XPS 13 isn't really a gaming machine, so it's of little consequence.
