Dell G15 5510 laptop review: Budget gaming laptop with the RTX 3050

Gaming for under 1,000 Euros. With the G15 5510, Dell targets price-conscious gamers. The 15-inch laptop offers a balanced combination of a hexa-core processor and a 4 GB graphics card in our review model. Where has the manufacturer cut corners?
Dell G15 5510

Users who aren't willing or able to spend more than 1,000 Euros (~$1,050) for a gaming laptop might have already come across the Dell G15 5510. Although the version that we reviewed no longer has the most up-to-date CPU with its Core i5-10500H, six cores and 12 threads are still respectable in 2022.

The graphics card, on the other hand, is up to date thanks to ray tracing support, even though the GeForce RTX 3050 quickly runs out of steam at higher resolutions and settings due to its low memory configuration. The mass storage drive in our review unit is a 512 GB NVMe SSD in the M.2 format. Along with that, there are 2x 8 GB DDR4-3200 RAM sticks in dual-channel mode. A matte wide-view panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz handles image reproduction.

Display

Like most budget gaming laptops, the Dell G15 5510 unfortunately doesn't have a good display. While the black level and contrast are more than decent for a laptop with an IPS panel (0.24 cd/m² and 1,200:1, respectively), the brightness and color space leave a lot to be desired. An average of 264 cd/m² means that the 15-incher is not suitable for outdoor use. The display would have to reach at least 350 cd/m² for this.

A meager 62% of sRGB coverage also leads to relatively pale colors, but the color accuracy is acceptable. Response times are also worse than what we're familiar with from more expensive gaming laptops. Around 21 ms black-to-white and 33 ms gray-to-gray can lead to compromises during fast movements (e.g. in first-person shooters). Meanwhile, there's little to complain about in terms of viewing angles - these are pleasingly stable.

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
20.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.8 ms rise
↘ 8.9 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 32 % 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
33.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.2 ms rise
↘ 17.1 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to 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 not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21819 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The Core i5-10500H and the GeForce RTX 3050 place the Dell G15 in the mid-range. 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage are also standard for a budget gaming device.

Processor

The Core i5-10500H is a somewhat older hexa-core CPU from Intel's Comet Lake generation, which is manufactured in the outdated 14 nm process. As mentioned earlier, the 45-watt model can process up to 12 threads in parallel. When the dedicated Nvidia GPU is idle, the internal graphics chip, namely the UHD Graphics 630 (Optimus technology), takes over.

Compared to the rival laptops with newer CPUs, our review unit's performance is decent. Consequently, the i5-10500H settles comfortably between the Core i5-11300H and the Core i5-11400H in the Cinebench R15 loop, and it easily surpasses the i5-10200H found in its similarly priced sibling model. Very nice: The CPU performance remains quite constant, even over prolonged periods of time.

System performance

The device's system performance fulfills every expectation that you might have of a budget gaming laptop. Although the results in PCMark 10 are only good enough for the penultimate place in the test field, the operating system (Windows 11 Home) responds pleasantly fast from a subjective point of view.

DPC latencies

In terms of latencies, there's definitely room for improvement for Dell. Out of the box, the G15 5510 isn't particularly suitable for real-time audio and video editing according to the LatencyMon tool. Some competitors do better in this regard.

Storage

The performance of the built-in SK Hynix M.2 SSD is rather unremarkable. By NVMe standards, the 512 GB drive is neither slow nor particularly fast; instead, it tends to perform somewhere in the midfield.

Graphics card

Dell is more aggressive when it comes to the graphics card. A TGP of 95 watts including Dynamic Boost is a very high value for the RTX 3050, which has to make do with 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. This is also noticeable in our benchmark course: The Dell G15 outperforms almost every other laptop with an RTX 3050. It often even reaches the level of the allegedly better RTX 3050 Ti.

Gaming performance

As long as the RTX 3050 isn't used for ray tracing or resolutions beyond 1,920x1,080, the DirectX 12 model has enough power to run the latest games at high to maximum details. Only very demanding or VRAM-intensive games, such as Dying Light 2, will be problematic.
