Chassis, connectors, Dell Inspiron G7 17 7700-778 screen
It adopts a gamer look with its aluminum frame and black plastic Mineral Black with angular lines, and is original with its advanced screen as well as its connectors positioned mostly at the back.
To cool it down, Dell integrates 2 fans, heat pipes and air vents.
The connectivity integrated into this gaming laptop PC is good, consisting of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax modules ( newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac ) to communicate and connect to wireless distance, practical HDMI and mini-DisplayPort video outputs for easily connecting this computer to a TV or monitor, for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB (compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0), USB 3.0 guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are connected.
A 4-zone RGB backlighting system is fitted to the chiclet keyboard, which is very practical for discerning its keys in the dark.
To appeal to gamers, Dell integrates the G key above the keyboard, which activates Game Shift technology to provide peak power in games as needed.
In the same vein, the screen is adorned with a frequency of 144Hz which reinforces the fluidity in games compared to the standard 60Hz.
As a bonus, it adopts IPS technology thanks to which the colorimetry is more faithful than the average and the viewing angles are important, both horizontally and vertically.
The screen is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos with its precise Full HD definition and 16: 9 format. Anti-reflective coating, it also offers better visibility than a shiny panel in bright environments (eg outdoors) while being more restful for the eyes in prolonged use.
Performance, battery life of Dell Inspiron G7 17 7700-778
The Dell Inspiron G7 17 7700-778 targets those who are looking for a versatile large-format laptop that performs well, especially in games, and is creative oriented.
Equipped with the high-end dedicated GeForce RTX 2070 Super NVIDIA Turing graphics card with ray tracing, it is able to support the most recent and graphics-intensive games at a good level of detail.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 2070 Super will be of interest to creatives because it speeds up processing in software that takes advantage of GPU computing power, such as Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere / Photoshop.
On-board NVIDIA Optimus technology switches between the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and the integrated Intel UHD 630 solution in the processor, and this automatically according to the tasks performed. Despite its very modest benefits, the Intel UHD 630 is given maximum preference by Optimus because it is energy efficient which promotes autonomy.
In this regard, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is therefore activated by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the UHD 630. With one or the other, you can of course watch photos and videos.
To support the GeForce RTX 2070 Super in gaming, Dell integrates a core delivering global power capable of satisfying demanding users, including creators. It is indeed composed on a Hexa Core i7-10750H Comet Lake-H processor and a good amount of 16 GB RAM.
This duo guarantees much faster processing than a Quad Core processor and 8 GB DDR4, the difference being particularly important in areas that require CPU and RAM resources using multicore, such as video editing, 3D rendering or photo editing.
However, it should be borne in mind that currently in games, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to a Quad Core.
The storage is up to the task, entrusted to an SSD with a large capacity of 1 TB that rivals hard drives.
An SSD has many advantages compared to a hard drive: it is silent, more resistant to shocks, more energy efficient but also much faster.
Result thanks to the SSD, we reach for example faster on the cards of online games than with a simple hard disk for example, and we benefit from much faster games / software launches as well as processing and start / stop.
Finally, expect a portable gaming PC to be heard and to heat up in the event of heavy loads (eg games, processing).
