This Dell Inspiron G5 5000 (5587) can appeal to those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch notebook PC, especially in games.
Thanks to its dedicated GeForce GTX 1060 dedicated 6GB Max-Q card , this computer is able to run the user\’s favorite games.
In practice, the GeForce GTX 1060 is enabled by embedded NVIDIA Optimus technology when it comes to performing graphics treatments deemed too heavy for the Intel UHD 630 housed within the processor. Despite its modest benefits, the latter is in fact privileged to the maximum by Optimus because its reduced energy consumption promotes autonomy. As needed, Optimus switches automatically and in real time between the Intel UHD 630 and the GeForce GTX 1060, both of which allow you to watch photos and videos.
The screen adopts specifications that lend themselves well to this use with its 16 / 9th format, its Full HD definition adapted to High Definition content and its IPS technology.

In other words, the daily operation of this PC is much faster and more responsive than a model without a 4 GB DDR3 / 4-based SSD and a Dual Core (or quad core low-power) processor, especially in RAM-intensive applications. and CPU.
Connectivity side, this notebook is well equipped with its USB 3.1 Type-C Thunderbolt 3, its Bluetooth 5.0 wireless modules and Wi-Fi ac to communicate and connect remotely, its audio and Ethernet ports, its HDMI video output useful to connect easily to a TV for example or its 3 USB (compatible USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 devices.
