AMD Radeon RX 7900M performance debut: Alienware m18 R1 laptop review

Diamond in the rough. AMD knocked it out of the park with its Ryzen series of mobile CPUs, but there's no question that its discrete mobile GPUs have been falling behind. The Radeon RX 7900M rights the ship by being just as powerful as the mobile RTX 4080 for hundreds of dollars less.

(November 28, 2023 update: Major display issues mentioned in this review can be addressed by installing the older display driver v31.0.14076.3, A01. Newer displays drivers were accidentally pushed and should be avoided for now. See our dedicated page here to learn more. Our original review is as follows.)

As the first 18-inch gaming laptop from Alienware in over a decade, Dell is going all-in on its Alienware M18 R1 series by offering Intel, AMD, and Nvidia options across the board to appeal to as many gamers as possible. Users can mix and match between Intel-Nvidia, AMD-Nvidia, or AMD-AMD when it comes to CPUs and GPUs which is very uncommon for a gaming laptop.

Our unit in review is the latest AMD-AMD configuration and one of the first available to offer the 180 W RNDA3 Radeon RX 7900M as an alternative to the reigning mobile GeForce RTX 4080. Perhaps most notably, the new AMD GPU undercuts the RTX 4090 configuration by $1200 USD with all other options held equal for a final price of $2300 USD as reviewed.

Alternatives to the Alienware m18 R1 include other high-end 18-inch gaming laptops like the Asus ROG Strix Scar 18, Razer Blade 18, or Acer Predator Helios 18. MSI does not yet offer any modern 18-inch gaming laptops at the moment.

Case

The Intel and AMD versions of the Alienware m18 R1 share the same chassis design and color options. Thus, the only quick and easy way to visually distinguish between the two models is to look for the Thunderbolt logos next to the USB-C ports along the rear. See our review on the Intel-Nvidia configuration to learn more about the physical features of the Alienware m18 R1.

USB4 is disappointingly not supported.

Accessories And Warranty

Dell has yet to transition to GaN AC adapters which can offer higher power-per-volume than traditional AC adapters. The included 330 W AC adapter is therefore very bulky when compared to the 330 W GaN AC adapters that currently ship with most Razer Blade laptops.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Display

Two FreeSync display options are available as follows:

  • 1920 x 1200, 480 Hz, 100% DCI-P3, IPS
  • 2560 x 1600, 165 Hz, 100% DCI-P3, IPS

Our configuration utilizes the bolded panel above much like on our previous Intel-Nvidia configuration. However, the panel provider is different this time around (BOE vs. Chi Mei) to suggest that Dell is sourcing 480 Hz panels from multiple vendors for its Alienware m18 series. There are thankfully no major differences between them in terms of color coverage, response times, or contrast for a very similar viewing experience.

The 480 Hz refresh rate is the fastest available on laptops as of this writing for extremely smooth motion with minimal ghosting. Nonetheless, the benefits of fast refresh rates become increasingly marginal the higher you go. It may therefore be worth considering the higher resolution 1600p option instead even if the refresh rate is slower as 165 Hz is still a silky smooth experience.

It's worth noting that the native 480 Hz refresh rate can be set to 240 Hz or 120 Hz via Windows, but not any lower. It's too bad that there is no 60 Hz option as high refresh rates impact power consumption as our Energy Management section below will show.

Strangely, the model comes calibrated against the sRGB spectrum out-of-the-box even though it supports full DCI-P3 colors. This would occur on our Intel-Nvidia configuration as well.

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
9.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.9 ms rise
↘ 4.7 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 20 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
2.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.2 ms rise
↘ 1.6 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 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 not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Testing Conditions

We set Alienware Command Center to Overdrive mode prior to running the benchmarks below. Familiarity with Command Center is vital for controlling specific features of the laptop including RGB lighting, power profiles, and game-specific profiles.

It's also recommended to download AMD Adrenalin to get the latest GPU drivers and for toggling on/off all the features of the GPU.

Processor

CPU performance is the classic AMD vs. Intel affair where our Ryzen 9 7945HX offers 5 to 10 percent faster raw multi-thread performance than the competing Core i9-13980HX while being 5 to 10 percent slower in single-thread performance. It's essentially on par with the recent Ryzen 9 7945HX3D to be one of the fastest mobile processors available. Downgrading to the Ryzen 9 7845HX or Ryzen 7 7745HX is expected to reduce processor performance by about 20 to 25 percent and 40 to 50 percent, respectively.

Performance sustainability is excellent as exemplified by the steady scores when running CineBench R15 xT in a loop.

System Performance

PCMark results are some of the highest of any gaming laptop to place our Alienware m18 on equal footing with some of the fastest Intel-Nvidia alternatives. Unfortunately, the user experience is less than stellar in practice due to all the bugs we observed. A few notable ones include:

  • Main display would sometimes turn off for no reason and a reboot would be required
  • Failure to boot if an external monitor is connected
  • Failure to run 3DMark Speed Way and Blender Classroom HIP/AMD benchmarks
  • Unusually high power consumption when on Standby mode

These issues would occur more than once even with the latest Windows updates and AMD drivers installed at the time of writing (31.0.22023.1014). 

Memory performance is also noticeably slower than many Intel-based gaming laptops. This doesn't appear to be a fluke either as our Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 with the same Ryzen 9 CPU as our Alienware would also return similarly low numbers.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon reveals slight DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs of our homepage which is not unusual. 4K video playback at 60 FPS could be better, however, as we're able to record 4 dropped frames within a 60-second window compared to 0 on the Blade 18.
