Perfect for working and relaxing on a wide range of games, the Dell G3 15 3590 displays high-end pretensions behind a look that is certainly racy but less aggressive than normal. Indeed, its black design emphasized sober blue does not prefigure the size of the components installed inside. It includes a Core i7 hexacoeurs, a fast and consistent SSD storage and a high-end graphics card latest generation, what play and work without limit. Without forgetting its complete connectivity and its quality IPS screen. The latter is nothing but vivacious (60 Hz) and also reproach the PC its plastic case a little cheap.

Chassis, connectors, Dell G3 15 3590 display
The positioning of the Inspiron 3000 range and by extension the G3 Gaming is the entry-level and it necessarily reflects in terms of appearance. The black case is composed mainly of plastic and the assembly is nice to be treated, the PC is in a rather neutral design. We note that Dell has taken a more aggressive turn in the design of its G3 with sharper lines, sharp angles, and cooling highlighted at the back of the base. This makes the PC more intimidating but it retains its smooth black hue and bluish accents that can go into a professional environment.
In the most compact game, the Dell Gaming G3 15 3590 is doing pretty well for its category with 2.34 kg on the scale and a size of 365 x 254 mm and a beautiful fineness of 21.6 mm . Its transport is possible as long as it is occasional, and beware of shocks with its plastic shell. Note also that the keyboard is backlit and has a keypad .
Good point, the 15.6-inch screen takes advantage of the restyling with a slightly refined frame. We are not at the borderless level of some PC gamers of the current market but the immersion is good thanks to the support of the IPS panel with its wide viewing angles. In addition, the Full HD (1920 x 1080px) definition is the most suitable for gamers and allows you to make the most of your High Definition content while the anti-glare treatment prevents the ambient light from being reflected on the screen, improving game comfort (especially in dark scenes). A doubt remains as to the value of the refresh rate on this model, 60 Hz or 144 Hz.
Connectivity is sufficiently varied on the flanks of the G3 3590 even if two USB ports are still limited by version 2.0. There is also an HDMI output, 1 USB 3.1 port and 1 USB 3.1 Type-C , an SD card reader and a Gigabit Ethernet port. All that a majority of users may need in sum. The wireless modules are entrusted to Wifi AC and recent Bluetooth 5.0.
Performance, autonomy of the Dell G3 15 3590
Originally designed for the game, the Dell G3 is based on the latest generation Turing GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card . Unlike the RTX 20 series, the latter only supports Ray-Tracing in small proportions and is therefore destined to succeed the mid-range GTX 10 Pascal cards. A notch below the GeForce RTX 2060, it is particularly able to compete with intensive players and ensure optimal frequencies in 1080p High on all AAA games with a total of more than 80 SPF. Creative is also valuable with its 6GB VRAM GDDR6 .
Storage is also on the front of the stage. It is entrusted to a dedicated SSD 512 GB NVMe PCIe that will blow a wind of responsiveness on the system. Globally quieter, rugged, and energy efficient than a mechanical drive, the SSD allows Windows to achieve outstanding fluidity with short load times and latency-free operation. To avoid spoiling, its storage capacity is not ridiculous, allowing you to install all your programs and files the most frequently used.
Opposite, the latest generation processor Hexa Core i7-9750H Coffee Lake Refresh is here to meet the needs of versatility. The gain compared to the previous generation is not necessarily significant on the perfs (10% env.) But it still allows to see large resources in multi-core tasks, in the service of versatility. Indeed, its 6 cores (12 logics multi-threading) are valuable when you work on greedy applications type 3D modeling, parallelization, video editing … Especially since the RAM is present in quantity. With 8 GB of RAM , you get enough multitasking .
A word to finish on the battery of fairly good capacity (51 Whr). It should allocate autonomy up to 6 hours in Internet browsing via Wifi.
