The Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop review we are going to do today will look into how its purchase price stacks up against the performance on offer from the hardware housed inside it. We will also be taking a look at today’s more demanding games to see some Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop gaming frame rates to help you judge if the value to money ratio is a good deal or not.
Is the Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Not for gaming
Processor - This laptop processor can run modern AAA titles with little problem and is an excellent laptop CPU gaming choice for 2021. This CPU comes with 8 cores, which is excellent providing it extra resource to chew through game processing when required.
Graphics Card - This laptop has a weak graphics solution in it with the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile. There are lots of better gaming graphics card choices and this is not a good gamers laptop choice. This laptop has 4GB of VRAM available. This graphics solution is OK for today’s gaming, but will struggle with some games and certainly start to cause a problem in the near future of AAA gaming.
System Memory - Our review laptop here has an excellent quantity of RAM for 2021 AAA games. The 32GB of RAM will meet the game requirements of the foreseeable future 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 preference for gaming laptops is actually 17 inch, which provides plenty of screen real estate for the in-game detail, while still providing a portable enough PC.
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. 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.
Getting a good price to performance gaming laptop is what we are all trying to do when looking for our next mobile machine. The key component in this is usually the graphics card. So we will of course be considering this hardware setup and how well it could run modern popular games like Grand Theft Auto VI, Battlefield 6 and Resident Evil 8 to help us know if this graphics card and laptop is a good price to performance point. We do this by considering the gaming frame rates achieved at its native 4K resolution while the games would be running at Ultra video settings. With the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile inside this laptop, this graphics card solution will be capable of meeting 325 games at their minimum system requirements and 0 games at their recommended system requirements of the top 500 most demanding games around today.
We really want to see how the Dell XPS 15 (2020) i7-10875H GTX 1650 Ti Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K will compare across all permutations of the XPS 15 (2020) model range.
