Newest dell g5 se 5505 15

     
Dell’s G5 15 SE is focused. It’s not the best-looking gaming máy tính xách tay or the fastest out there, but starting at $879.99, its AMD Ryzen processor and RX 5600M graphics cpu make for a great tag team. Along with other speedy components lượt thích fast RAM, an NVMe SSD, và a 144Hz refresh rate display, this Dell gaming máy tính undercuts and outruns the competition in its price range.

The G5 doesn’t have phenomenal battery stamina lượt thích other AMD-powered laptops we’ve recently reviewed, but it’s a great midrange desktop replacement that can play most modern games at their highest graphical settings without a fuss. Plenty of gaming laptops can do that, but this one stands out solely because it won’t cost you an extravagant amount of cash to lớn get one.

The most powerful configuration costs $1,199.99 at the time of publishing, which is the one that I’ve been testing. Spending this much gets you AMD’s fast and efficient 7nm Ryzen 7 4800H based on the Zen 2 architecture, along with the Radeon RX 5600M graphics chip. The 4800H is a 45W processor that rivals Intel’s bộ vi xử lý core i7-10875H with base clock and boost speeds, và also for having eight cores and 16 threads. Notably, AMD’s Ryzen 7 chip has found its way into cheaper gaming laptops like this one. The core i7-10875H — at least, so far — is reserved for far more expensive options.

The G5 15 SE can run almost any PC game at high settings with a relatively stable, smooth frame rate.
*
AMD’s Radeon software shows your average frames per second in games you’ve recently played.
(Note: The base model comes with a 60Hz display, though Dell told me that it plans to lớn raise the standard refresh rate in the base configuration from 60Hz khổng lồ 120Hz later this summer once it sells out, and it doesn’t expect the price to increase. The 144Hz option will continue khổng lồ exist for higher-end models, like the one I tested.)

Most games run with some graphical settings set khổng lồ max without dropping below — or at least too far below — a smooth 60 frames per second, though the mileage varies depending on the title. GTA Online, for example, averaged 55 frames per second with some of the more advanced shadow & anti-aliasing options switched on, but the trò chơi looks nearly just as good with those resource-intensive settings switched off. Metro Exodus, another trò chơi that puts hardware to task, also averaged 55 frames per second with settings adjusted to high on the benchmark, & that one was a little more shaky in terms of performance.

The Radeon RX 5600M is a midrange graphics cpu that doesn’t perform as well in most cases as Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2060, though it’s far better than the experience I had with the GTX 1650 built into the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 I reviewed recently. In the G5, the RX 5600M’s performance is given a boost by AMD’s new SmartShift feature, which dynamically pushes power between the CPU and GPU depending on where it’s needed most. It’s tough to lớn tell when this is working in real time, though a Dell spokesperson told me that the feature is built into the BIOS level and into the drivers, và that it’s always running. Without this tight integration, I’m not sure I’d recommend getting just any máy tính xách tay built with the RX 5600M. I can’t argue with the results here, though.

Dell G5 15 SE (2020) specs (as reviewed)

Aside from gaming, the performance in day-to-day tasks is also exemplary for the price. The G5 15 SE doesn’t slow down with over 30 Microsoft Edge tabs open, along with Spotify, Affinity Photo, & Slack. I was also pleased with how quickly it can export đoạn phim in Adobe Premiere Pro. It crunched out a five-minute, 33-second 4K export in seven & a half minutes. That’s not a bad result, though I wouldn’t recommend this machine to lớn someone who specializes in creative work. Lớn its credit, it stayed relatively quiet throughout the export process, though it did get toasty at about 100 degrees Celsius while plugged in.

On đứng top of the powerful processor, my đánh giá unit has 16GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 3,200MHz aided by fast NVMe M.2 storage (both of which are configurable at the time of purchase or by yourself if you feel comfortable opening it up). I didn’t experience many general performance issues, but there was one nagging problem I couldn’t escape. Every 20 or so minutes, the computer locks up for about 10 seconds. Background operations keep going, but the mouse pointer mysteriously disappears và my current application freezes. A Dell spokesperson told me that this problem isn’t widespread, and that it could be the result of a recent Windows update throwing something out of whack. But when I uninstalled as many recent updates as I could, the issue still lingered.

Only through the power nguồn port can the G5 15 SE be charged. Perhaps we’ll see USB-C charging come in future iterations.

With its gaming focus over productivity, the G5 unsurprisingly doesn’t fare nearly as well in the battery department as other recent AMD-powered machines. I averaged about three hours of battery life on the “Better Battery” power nguồn profile with the screened dimmed to lớn around 75 percent of its total 300 nits potential. That’s not a surprising number for a gaming laptop with a 51Wh battery and a 144Hz FreeSync display, but it’s decidedly not great compared lớn the long-lasting performance of more expensive options lượt thích the hãng asus Zephyrus G14, another gaming máy vi tính featuring a Ryzen processor. The G5 15 SE came with McAfee LiveSafe installed, which I was suspicious of being the culprit for the quick battery drain. Though, even without it, I averaged the same life span. Dell says that it’s always looking for ways lớn optimize battery life, và it’s in constant communication with AMD about it. So, it could improve a little in the future, but for now you’ll need khổng lồ keep the big, rectangular 240W power nguồn brick close.


Agree to lớn Continue: Dell G5 15 SE (2020)

Every smart device now requires you to lớn agree to a series of terms và conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us khổng lồ read & analyze every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to lớn use devices when we nhận xét them, since these are agreements most people don’t read và definitely can’t negotiate.

To start using the Dell G5 15 SE, you’ll need khổng lồ agree lớn the following:

Select your regionPick your keyboard layoutWindows 10 license agreementDell’s over User license agreementMicrosoft accountPIN

Optional:

Connect khổng lồ Wi-FiActivity HistorySet up the Phone app with an app android phoneOneDrive backupOffice 365Cortana setupPrivacy settings (speech recognition, location, Find My Device, sharing diagnostic data, inking & typing, tailored experience, advertising ID)Support and protection. Filling this out requires agreeing lớn McAfee privacy policy

Final tally: there are six mandatory agreements & 14 optional agreements lớn use the G5 15 SE.


Performance aside, there’s unfortunately a lot of room for improvement in some key areas of its design. In photos, this máy vi tính looks relatively thin, standing out with a glossy, iridescent shell and its striking, angular fan outtakes — though it’s a tired look in person that’s reminiscent of an older Alienware chassis. Having an all-plastic build at this price point isn’t a shocker, but it creaks when you move the display around, and it generally feels bulky khổng lồ carry around — not helped by weighing a hefty 5.5 pounds.

Its 15.6-inch 1080p VA display looks crisp và has great viewing angles (Dell refers lớn it as WVA, or wide vertical alignment), though it’s surrounded by thick bezels. The unit I used for reviews had some light bleed at the bottom of the display, though it’s most noticeable during loading screens with dark backgrounds. There are side-mounted speakers located near the rear of the keyboard, and shocker, they aren’t great. Sometimes, their location can lead khổng lồ sound that has a wider presence than what’s usually emitted from laptop speakers, but you’re still better off listening through a headset.


You might immediately plug in your own preferred keyboard & mouse on this machine, but the backlit chiclet keyboard here is serviceable và I don’t make many errors typing on it. If you prefer clicky keys with a good amount of travel, you won’t find that here. The trackpad, while it supports Windows Precision drivers for intuitive scrolling and gestures, is far too small. There’s so much unused space on the wrist rest, so I would love lớn see Dell actually vày something with it.

The G5 15 SE’s ports are comprehensive for the cost. This máy vi tính has a power nguồn plug, an SD thẻ reader, a 3.5mm headphone jack, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0, a USB 3.2 ren 1 port, Ethernet, & a USB-C port with DisplayPort for supported monitors.

The Dell G5 15 SE is a winner if you’re trying lớn get the most amount of power nguồn for the least amount of money. This isn’t the most lean, well-built laptop out there, và I look forward lớn seeing how Dell refines its edge in future versions. But as it stands, I recommend opting for this over most other gaming laptops close to $1,000. Its fast components make for a downright enjoyable gaming experience with minimal compromises, and it includes some high-end features like a fast refresh rate display & a speedy RAM và NVMe M.2 SSD full bộ that keeps it quick on its feet for most tasks. At this price point, Dell is running the show.
