Gaming Laptop Analysis
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 - With the Core i7-10875H 8-Core 2.30GHz processor in this laptop its excellent for 2021 gaming, capable of running today’s game processor system requirements. 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 - This graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Mobile, is a poor gamer choice for 2021 AAA games. Look elsewhere for a gamer focused laptop. 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 - This laptop’s 32GB of RAM is excellent for 2021 gaming.
Screen Size - This laptop screen size is capable of meeting 2021 gaming, making it a step closer to being a good laptop for gamers. Larger laptop screens normally equal less squinting at on screen text, providing the resolution is set inline with the screens native pixel count. We normally look to the 17 inch panels for focused gaming laptops, but this 15.6" screen is the most common and popular in the market, due to portability versus viewability. 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 - A gaming laptop wants to have a higher refresh rate to accommodate more frames per second(FPS) in the games it runs. The refresh rate is like a hard cap on the games deliverable FPS. The better the refresh rate the more FPS the laptop can deliver in games, up to the panels refresh rate hertz, and then the sharper the in game play is when the player moves about. With just 60Hz refresh rate this is ok and passable for gaming, but ideally you are looking for a screen with a higher rate.
