Gaming Laptop Analysis

Is the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 16GB 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 2021. 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’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile is an excellent gaming graphics card for 2021 gaming. Modern AAA gaming can lean on GPU VRAM and this graphics solution comes with 8GB. This makes it excellent for gaming.

System Memory - This laptop system memory is excellent at meeting today’s 2021 system requirements demands and with its 16GB of RAM it will certainly meet the requirements of games into the near future as well.

Screen Size - This laptops screen dimensions create a good balance between portable and visually suitable, when considering your next gaming laptop. With 17 inch currently being the more preferable for gaming, a lot of people will prefer the smaller form factor on offer with this 15.6" screen. In our minds, if you have a smaller 1.5Kg or larger 3.5Kg laptop with you, it's always going to be a lump to transport. And so for a gaming laptop we would rather see the games more clearly on a larger 17inch screen, upon arriving at a destination, rather than compromise a game’s experience. But for some it will be the other way around. Fortunately there will be something for everyone in the laptop marketplace.

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 You can get this laptop with 60Hz refresh rate which, for gaming, is an ok refresh rate.

GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile graphics card gaming performance in the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 16GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop

When stacked up against this, our laptop has 125% worse rating difference on its P2P. It's worth noting that the very best P2P model has a recorded price of $999.00 to consider and of course this is purely a value for performance basis. The next best model is MSI Bravo 15 R7 4800H RX 5500M 16GB RAM 512GB M.2, which costs $1049.00. Our Alienware M15 R3 review laptop is 96% worse when comparing Price/Performance against the next top P2P laptop. Again this is purely a value for performance comparison, and many things go into helping us choose the right laptop for us. This is a good indicator but it's certainly then worth looking through the range for other configurations of a laptop you are interested in to find the right price point for you.

How does the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 16GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop compare to the best CPU performance focused laptops and today’s most popular games?

One of the key components in a laptop is of course its CPU. So let's see if our Alienware M15 R3 laptop compares favourably when placed against the laptop that has one of the most powerful CPU’s around today. This comparison will at least help us know how this laptop performs against the top end CPU laptop and we can then see the amount of money we might have to pay to get that sort of laptop. We have chosen our comparison CPU focused laptop today as the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR 17 G733 (2021) R9 5900HX RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q 64GB RAM 2.0TB M.2 1080p 165Hz, which comes armed with the Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-Core 3.3GHz laptop CPU. This top tier CPU is currently delivering 45% better performance when benched against our own review laptop’s Core i7-10750H 6-Core 2.60GHz.

Today’s performance comparison for all games shows our laptop CPU can currently meet or beat 463 game’s recommended system requirements when we put the 500 most demanding games into a list. With a list of 500 Minimum system specs put in a similar most demanding order this changes to it being able to run 500 games.

When compared to the recommended processor requirements of the most popular games today, like Elden Ring our laptop CPU is 49% better in performance. Compared to Battlefield 6 our laptop processor is 17% better.

How does the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2070 Super Mobile 16GB RAM 512GB M.2 4K laptop compare to the best graphics card performance focused laptops and today’s most popular games?

Now lets see how well our review laptop holds up compared against graphical performance with the top performing GPU laptop available today. We have chosen this next laptop for its GPU power, which is the Dell Alienware M17 R4 (2021) i9-10980HK RTX 3080 16GB Mobile 32GB RAM 512GB M.2 1080p 144Hz, and comes packing a GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile video card. That graphics card performs 31% better when compared to our review laptop’s GeForce RTX 2070 Super Mobile.

Interestingly we can see 478 games recommended system requirements are lower in performance than our laptop’s GPU performance capability. This is when we look at the top 500 most demanding games around today. For minimum system requirements in this same area the number is 499 games are worse than our GPU performance, again looking at the top 500 most demanding minimum system requirements.

When compared to the recommended graphics requirements of the most popular games today, like Elden Ring our laptop GPU is 64% better in performance. Compared to Battlefield 6 our laptop graphics performance is 12% better.
