Gaming Laptop Analysis

Is the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Excellent

Processor - The Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz is an excellent gaming CPU for 2022. The processor in this laptop has 6 cores, which makes it excellent for modern gamers, minimising the risk of throttling game processes due to a lack of available cores.

Graphics Card - This laptop graphics card is excellent at running AAA titles released during 2022. Dont underestimate the importance of your GPU VRAM in modern gaming. Fortunately this GPU has 8GB, making it an excellent gamers choice of GPU.

System Memory - Today’s AAA 2022 gaming is easily covered by the 32GB RAM in this machine, making this an excellent gaming laptop choice.

Screen Size - The 15.6" screen on this laptop is a good size for a 2022 gaming laptop. Exploring for a suitable gaming laptop, we look at 17 inches for the better viewing size, 15 inches is always a good size if portability is more your focus, but in our minds we want the largest screen size while still being portable, so we can more clearly see the games.

Refresh Rate - Look for higher refresh rate hertz for a gaming laptop. Ideally around 120Hz or more refresh rate on a gaming laptop screen. The laptop can only deliver FPS(frames per second) up to the listed refresh rate. So if you have hardware in your laptop that can turn out awesome frame rates on all the latest AAA titles, but a 60hz refresh rate, your laptop will be stuck at a maximum of 60FPS in all games. The top panel refresh rate for this laptop is 60Hz which is ok but not really your first choice, if you want a good gaming laptop. Look for panels that we mark as good or excellent if you think this laptop hardware can get higher than 60FPS on most modern games.

If you are looking for a strong CPU focused laptop then let's compare this Alienware M15 R3 laptop with the top CPU performance focused laptop available today and see how it compares. Selecting todays ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 R9 4900HS RTX 2060 Mobile 16GB RAM 1.0TB M.2 laptop, we will use its mighty Ryzen 9 4900HS 8-Core 3.0GHz to compare against our Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz processor from our review laptop. We can see that the top end CPU currently delivers 35% better performance when benched against our own review laptop’s Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz.

The Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz processor found in this machine can currently run 441 games of the top 500 most demanding games right now. This is basically how many recommended game system requirements our laptop cpu beats in performance today, but we will update this figure as new games come out. This is 499 games when looking at beating minimum system requirements.

Recommended processor requirements for modern games increase all the time, so we thought we would compare the performance of our laptop CPU to some popular games of today. First off there is Star Citizen and our laptop CPU delivers 7% worse performance compared to that game’s requirement. Next we have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) in which we see our laptop processor has 9% better performance compared to the game's CPU specs. And then there is 9% better performance when we put our laptop cpu against Grand Theft Auto VI recommended specs.

How does the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop compare to the best graphics card performance focused laptops and today’s most popular games?

Shall we see if our review laptop holds out favourably against a top GPU performance focused laptop PC that is currently available. We have the MSI GT76 Titan i9-10900K RTX 2080 Super 64GB RAM 2.0TB M.2 4K as one of today’s best graphics crunching laptop. It comes with a GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB video card in it, which currently has 27% better performance compared to our laptop’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile.

Our laptop Graphics Card, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile, can currently meet the recommended system requirements of 464 games when compared against the top 500 most demanding games right now. This number changes to 499 for the top 500 most demanding minimum system requirements.

A game’s listed recommended GPU requirements are a good way to compare the performance of our laptop graphics card. Lets see today's popular titles up against our laptop graphics. First off let's look at Star Citizen which shows our laptop video card has 64% better performance than it. How about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022), where we see our GPU is 3% better. Then there is 3% better performance when compared against today’s most popular title, Grand Theft Auto VI.
