Gaming Laptop Analysis
Is the Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 8GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Not for gaming
Processor - Modern AAA 2021 gaming with the Core i7-10875H 8-Core 2.30GHz processor is no problem. As it meets game requirements of today it will likely hold its own against future release titles as well, this is an excellent CPU for a gaming laptop. Games are beginning to lean on more CPU cores for extra processing. Fortunately this CPU has 8 cores, making it an excellent gamers processor choice.
Graphics Card - The graphics solution contained in this laptop is not for gaming in 2021. It will struggle with most of the AAA titles that are released. 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 system memory is capable of meeting the latest game requirements of 2021, making it a step closer to being a good laptop for gamers.
Screen Size - Today’s 2021 games are well supported by the 15.6" panel found attached to this laptop. While you could find a portable laptop with more screen real estate, this is a good gamer laptop choice. We would probably prefer the larger 17 inch size laptop for an ideal gamers laptop, but perhaps this smaller size would tick your requirement for smaller and more portable.
Refresh Rate - If you want a gaming laptop then aim for a refresh rate that is more than 60Hz. If you don't clearly see the advertised laptops screen refresh rate then assume it is 60Hz. This would mean that the laptop will be capped at 60FPS when running games. The higher the refresh rate and the FPS then the smoother the game plays as it delivers more images a second to your screen and makes movement feel more responsive in game. Ok, after considering those thoughts on refresh rates, we have 60Hz refresh rate in the review laptop here. This isn’t great but would be mostly ok for gaming. That is unless you felt like this laptop could achieve higher FPS than the refresh rate offered here. In this case, and providing your budget allowed, look for a better refresh rate screen.
