Gaming Laptop Analysis
Is the Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 16GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Not for gaming
Processor - This laptop has an excellent processor in it for meeting modern AAA CPU requirements during 2021 gaming. With 8 of CPU cores available, this processor doesn’t have to worry too much about gaming processes bottlenecking as few games will be able to use all of these cores completely
Graphics Card - The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile is not for modern gaming. Perhaps some modern indie games might run on it. This GPU has 4GB of VRAM. This is considered an OK amount of VRAM for some of the modern game releases. If you are a gamer then perhaps look for a laptop with more VRAM.
System Memory - An excellent amount of system memory, the 16GB is capable of running AAA titles during the 2021 gaming year and we would expect beyond that as well.
Screen Size - This laptop comes with a good screen size (15.6") which is certainly capable of viewing and playing 2021 titles. Larger screens can offer better in-game views, as often game HUDs and menus can take up a fair amount of a smaller laptop screen space and leave you squinting at the detail or text. 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 - Gaming laptops might well be capable of getting high frames per second nowadays, but sometimes the laptop comes with a 60Hz refresh rate. This refresh rate is the number of times an image can be displayed by the screen. So if your graphics card and processor can get 100 FPS in most games, it will only ever be displayed by the laptop as 60FPS because of the refresh rate of 60Hz. Look for 120Hz on a good gaming laptop, or 144Hz on an excellent gaming laptop This laptop comes with a 60Hz refresh rate. Which is just ok for gaming. There are better and if you want to enjoy higher frame rates you will look for a gaming laptop with a higher refresh rate.
