Chassis, connectors, display of the Dell G15 5511-570
With its dark Dark Shadow Grey design with angular lines and advanced screen, this laptop creator gamer adopts an original look for a gaming computer while adopting the codes of the genre.
For its cooling, it relies on an Alienware solution using 2 fans, heat pipes and air vents. It can be controlled using the Alienware Command Center application.
The connectivity built into this versatile laptop is good, including 1 USB-C, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi ax modules(newer and more powerful than Wi-Fi ac)to communicate and connect remotely wirelessly, a convenient HDMI video output to easily connect this PC to a monitor or TV for example, Ethernet and audio ports as well as 3 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times more fast than in USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 devices.
A backlight solution equips the chiclet keyboard which is practical to better distinguish them in low light atmosphere.
The screen is adorned with a refresh rate of 120Hz higher than the standard 60Hz which has the effect of improving fluidity in games. It also has comfortable vertical and horizontal viewing angles, but are not as large as those provided by the IPS. In any case, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content such as videos due to its precise Full HD definition and its 16/9th format. Treated anti-reflective, the screen also offers better visibility than a shiny slab in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).
Performance, battery life of the Dell G15 5511-570
The Dell G15 5511-570 is for those who want to get a versatile 15-inch performance laptop focused on creation and gaming.
It relies on 8 GB of RAM associated with a Tiger Lake-H Intel Hexa Core i5-11400H processor around an Intel HM570 chipset to provide solid overall performance able to satisfy a very large number of users.
It should be noted that the Core i5 Hexa Core has the advantage of ensuring faster processing than a Quad Core in cpu-intensive areas using multi-core, such as photo editing, video editing or 3D rendering, which will interest creators.
The latter will be all the more delighted that the GeForce RTX 3050 is embedded. Because this dedicated NVIDIA Ampere graphics card accelerates processing under software taking advantage of multi-core, which is for example the case with Adobe Photoshop/Premiere or Sony Vegas.
The GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing will also interest players because it is able to run many games for concessions under the opus greedy in graphic resources to benefit from a good gameplay.
Note, however, that in games currently, the contribution of the Hexa Core is variable compared to the Quad Core.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3050 ray tracing is automatically enabled/disabled in real time by NVIDIA Optimus technology, depending on the tasks performed.
To promote maximum autonomy, Optimus uses as much as possible the Intel Iris Xe, a modest graphics solution housed within the Hexa Core i5 but which still allows you to watch photos and videos but also to play titles not too greedy in 3D resources.
The GeForce RTX 3050 is in practice used by Optimus to perform graphics work deemed too heavy for the Intel Iris Xe, for example to play. With either of these graphic parts, it is of course possible to watch photos and videos.
The 512 GB SSD storage offers a capacity similar to the standard of hard drives while being silent, less energy-consuming, more robust and silent.
Concretely thanks to the SSD, the treatments are much faster for example just like the launches of games / software and starts / stops, and we reach faster on the cards of online games. More generally, the SSD guarantees a much better responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis than a hard disk.
Of course in the event that 512 GB is too fair, we can use an external storage unit. Favoring a USB-C/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to benefit from fast transfers.
Finally, regarding the autonomy of this versatile multimedia computer designed to play and create that heats up and is heard in case of high demands (eg treatments, games), bet on about 6 hours of operation on battery in light use.
