2022 Dell XPS 15 9520 3.5K OLED laptop review: Skip or buy?

The Intel 12th gen update. Now in its third year, the XPS 15 9520 is another internal update to the already familiar 2020 XPS 15 9500 and 2021 XPS 15 9510. But is the fancy new Alder Lake-H CPU really enough to make a difference?

Dell kicked off the decade with a bang by introducing the fully refreshed XPS 15 9500 to succeed the older generation XPS 15 7590 series. The model shifted the XPS 15 family from 16:9 to 16:10 alongside a brand new chassis design with Intel 10th gen Comet Lake-H CPUs and the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU. The XPS 15 9510 took it a step further with 11th gen Tiger Lake-H CPUs and optional 3.5K OLED panels. Now, the XPS 15 9520 is yet another incremental update with 12th gen Alder Lake-H CPUs and faster DDR5 RAM.

We recommend checking out our existing review on the XPS 15 9500 as the XPS 15 9520 chassis remains identical. This review page will focus on the performance of the XPS 15 9520 and other differences users can expect when compared to previous models.

Alternatives to the Dell XPS 15 9520 include other high-end 15.6-inch multimedia laptops with discrete graphics like the the Asus Zenbook Pro 15 OLED, Lenovo Yoga Creator 7 15, HP Spectre x360 15, HP Envy 15, or the MSI Creator 15.

Case

The XPS 15 9520 chassis is still one of the smallest designs in its size category despite being two years old. The very narrow bezels on all four sides including the chin help to reduce footprint by greater margins than say the Zenbook Pro 15 or Spectre x360 15.

Communication

An Intel AX211 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. However, Dell has confirmed with us that the XPS 15 9520 was not designed to support 6 GHz Wi-Fi 6E networks despite the fact that the AX211 chip can. Thus, owners of the XPS 15 9520 will only be able to connect to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks up to Wi-Fi 6.

Webcam

Dell has improved the colors of the webcam by separating the IR and RGB sensors when compared to the XPS 15 9510 or 9500. It remains just 1 MP, however, compared to 2 MP on other flagship 15.6-inch laptops like the Razer Blade 15. Thus, while colors may be a bit better, the picture is still muddy.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes the USB-C AC adapter, paperwork, and a USB-C to full-size HDMI and USB-A adapter. The latter is particularly helpful as the system integrates only USB-C ports.

Display — Uncommon 3.5K OLED

Our review unit comes with the same 3.5K OLED touchscreen that was available on last year's XPS 15 9510 meaning that the visual experience hasn't changed year-over-year. A lower-resolution 1920 x 1200 IPS option and higher-resolution 3840 x 2400 IPS option are also available, but all panels are unfortunately limited to a 60 Hz refresh rate. Certain Ultrabooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7i Pro or Asus Vivobook Pro 14 are already shipping with faster 90 Hz panels for a noticeably smoother UI experience.

Keep in mind that pulse-width modulation is present on all brightness at 238 Hz from 0 percent to 25 percent brightness and 59 Hz from 26 percent to 100 percent brightness. If screen flickering is an issue, then we recommend configuring with IPS instead.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.1 ms rise
↘ 0.8 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.1 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 59.52 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 59.52 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 59.52 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance — Intel 12th Gen Options

 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Performance mode via Windows and Ultra Performance mode via the My Dell application prior to running any benchmarks below for the highest possible scores. Note that My Dell has effectively replaced the older Dell Power Manager software. We recommend users become familiar with the new application as it is the one-stop shop for Dell updates and performance settings.

The 45 W TGP GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU has not changed from the previous XPS 15 9510. There is expectedly no MUX switch or adaptive sync since the XPS 15 is not designed for gaming.

Processor

The boost in CPU performance from the XPS 15 9510 to the 9520 is more significant than the boost in CPU performance from the XPS 9500 to the 9510. Jumping from the Core i7-11800H in the XPS 15 9510 to the Core i7-12700H in our 9520 will grant a 35 to 40 percent increase in multi-thread performance and a 15 to 20 percent increase in single-thread performance. The jump is enough to propel the 12th gen Intel CPU slightly ahead of the popular Ryzen 7 5800H that has infamously outperformed most 11th gen Intel Core-H series CPUs in multi-thread workloads.

CPU performance could have been better in spite of the aforementioned year-over-year increase. When compared to the 20+ other laptops we've tested thus far with the same Core i7-12700H CPU, the one in our XPS 15 9520 is slower than the average by about 5 to 15 percent. Running CineBench R15 xT in a loop shows that the CPU in the Dell isn't able to maintain high Turbo Boost clock rates for as long as most other laptops with the same processor. Models like the Asus TUF Gaming F15 FX507ZM can run the same CPU up to 36 percent faster than on our Dell.

Storage Devices — Supports Up To Two PCIe4 NVMe SSDs

Our test unit ships with a PCIe4 x4 Western Digital SN810 NVMe SSD as opposed to the PCIe3 x4 solutions on older models. Transfer rates are significantly faster as a result at up to ~6700 MB/s or over twice that of most PCIe3 drives. The SN810 in our unit would have no issues maintaining its maximum transfer rate for extended periods when stressed under DiskSpd to suggest excellent heat dissipation.

GPU Performance — GeForce RTX 3050 Ti For A Second Year In A Row

The XPS 15 9520 comes with faster RAM than on the XPS 15 9510 (DDR5-4800 vs. DDR4-3200) which should lead to slightly faster graphics performance. Unfortunately, Dell has downclocked the GPU clock rate from 1530 MHz on the XPS 15 9510 to 1035 MHz on the 9520 and so any potential performance gains from the faster RAM have been cancelled out. GeForce RTX 3050 Ti 3DMark results between the XPS 15 9510 and 9520 are nearly identical as a result.

Graphics performance remains around 20 to 30 percent faster than the GTX 1650 Ti on the older XPS 15 9500.
