Gaming Laptop Analysis

Is the Dell Alienware M15 R3 i7-10750H RTX 2080 Super Max-Q 32GB RAM 1000GB M.2 4K good as a gaming laptop? Excellent

Processor - This processor is an excellent 2020 hardware component for running modern AAA games. Games are beginning to lean on more CPU cores for extra processing. Fortunately this CPU has 6 cores, making it an excellent gamers processor choice.

Graphics Card - This laptop has an excellent choice of graphics card for modern AAA games during 2020. Loaded up with a huge amount of VRAM, this GPU has 8GB, which makes it excellent for AAA gaming.

System Memory - The 32GB RAM found in this machine is considered an excellent 2020 amount for modern AAA titles and a solid gaming machine.

Screen Size - By our standards our review laptop’s 15.6" panel is considered good for modern 2020 gaming. There are larger laptops but with this laptop you will get a good balance between portability and gaming viewability. The screen size provides a gamer with larger menus, whereas the resolution of the panel provides definition. We normally choose a 17 inch laptop for gamer screen size. This larger sort of panel would help show menus in-game and game text more clearly.

Refresh Rate - If you are focused on a gaming laptop then ideally you want a refresh rate of 120Hz or 144Hz or more. A lot of laptops come with 60Hz and this will stop your games being able to run in more than 60 Frames per second. Even if you hardware is capable of far more frames per second. The refresh rate on this laptop panel is ok for gaming, at 60Hz, but a decent gaming laptop would have a higher rate, to help deliver better FPS, if the hardware was capable of that in game.
