Gaming Laptop Analysis
Is the Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10750H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 8GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Not for gaming
Processor - This processor, the Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz, is excellent and can meet 2022 AAA title requirements with relative ease. Modern AAA gaming can use multiple cores and this processor comes with 6 of them. This makes it excellent for today’s gaming.
Graphics Card - This graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile, is a poor gamer choice for 2022 AAA games. Look elsewhere for a gamer focused laptop. Your GPU VRAM is important in modern gaming. The laptop’s GPU here has 4GB of VRAM which is just OK by todays game requirements. There are laptop GPU solutions with much more VRAM, which would be better if you are looking for a gaming laptop right now.
System Memory - This laptop comes with a good load of RAM (8GB) which is certainly capable of running lots of 2022 AAA titles and meeting their requirements.
Screen Size - The screen on this laptop is certainly a good option for game releases in 2022, but there is room for better, should your budget allow. But sometimes larger than this 15.6" is too big and this is definitely a good, portable option for some gamers. Our gaming laptop screen size of choice would be a 17 inch. But that's because we focus on gaming over portability and the bigger you go, the less portable your laptop becomes. In our minds, whether you are carrying a smaller 1.5 or larger 3.5Kg laptop with you, it's always going to be a lump and we would rather see the games better when we arrive. But that choice is not going to be for everyone.
Refresh Rate - Refresh rates can be hard to see, when the laptop reseller doesn't make it clear. Assume 60Hz if this is the case. Ideally for a gaming laptop you want 120Hz. This means the games you run can get up to 120 frames per second, assuming the hardware inside them is powerful enough to deliver that FPS. The refresh rate caps a games deliverable FPS even if the hardware can deliver more FPS than the Hz. Refresh rates are tied to the laptop’s screen. This laptop has an ok refresh rate for modern gaming but at 60Hz it could restrict FPS if the laptop was capable of delivering more than the refresh rate.
