Dell G15 5530 review: RTX 4050 gaming laptop in Dark Shadow Gray

Not a lightweight. For the G15 5530, Dell is going against the trend of slimming down devices and has given the 15-inch laptop a fairly bulky and heavy chassis. We compared the G15 with other RTX 4050 gaming laptops to find out whether the €1,000 (US$1,090) model is worth the money.
Dell G15 5530

After reviewing the G15 with a Core i7-13650HX and GeForce RTX 4060 a few months back (see article), we're now checking out the lower-cost version (by a few hundred euros) with a Core i5-13450HX und GeForce RTX 4050. This variant is similarly equipped with 16 GB of DDR-4800 RAM, a 512 GB drive and a 165Hz IPS display, though different models are occasionally used for these components. Rounding off the package is the Windows 11 Home 64 Bit operating system.

The G15 is up against other RTX 4050-based 15-inch gaming laptops like the Medion Erazer Crawler E40, the Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8 and the Asus TUF A15 FA507, all of which appear in the tables below for comparison purposes.

Because the chassis is identical to the G15 we previously reviewed apart from its colour scheme (grey instead of white) and keyboard language, we are only going to briefly cover the case, specs and input devices in this article.

Case

The G15 turns out to be a notebook with a classic build, meaning it's neither very thin (2.7 cm, or 1.06 in) nor especially light (2.7 kg, or 5.95 lb). The competitors offer more modern designs, though this doesn’t always have to be a good thing (keyword: emissions). In terms of aesthetics, the laptop's design is particularly eye-catching, but like what many other manufacturers do in this price bracket, Dell has opted for an all-plastic exterior that has a tendency to rattle in some spots. The quality of the fit and finish is good by contrast. The hinge mechanism does a decent job; the laptop can be easily opened with one hand.

Specifications

Interfaces

The port selection is pretty outdated and sparse. For instance, you won’t find a single USB4 port on the device. Instead, it only comes with one USB. 3.2 Gen 2 (Type C) and three USB 3.2 Gen 1 (Type A) ports. Users will also have to do without a card reader and a Kensington slot. But at least the device has a HDMI 2.1 output, an Ethernet port and an audio jack.

Connectivity

The G15's wireless performance is on par with (send) or higher than (receive) the average we’ve seen so far from this class of laptop. The built-in wireless card is made by Intel (Wi-Fi 6 AX201).

Webcam

The webcam is fairly mediocre quality-wise. There is still room for improvement when it comes to colour accuracy and image sharpness.

Accessories

Given the level of performance on offer, the G15 is shipped with an absurdly big and weighty power adapter (incl. cable 1.5 kg, or 3.3 lb).

Maintenance

Opening the chassis can definitely be done even by an average user. After removing ten cross-head screws, you’ll be able to lift the bottom panel out of the retainer. Waiting under the hood are the cooling unit, battery, Wi-Fi module, two occupied memory slots, one M.2 2230 slot in use, and one free M.2 2280 slot for storage upgrade.

Warranty

Dell provides only a 12-month warranty by default in Germany. But warranty period may vary depending on region.

Input devices

Keyboard

The input devices are solid without really being amazing. The tiny arrow keys notwithstanding, we especially like the layout of the German keyboard, which largely keeps to the standard arrangement and offers a full-size numpad. The typing feel is rather mediocre and could be even firmer in our opinion. The white backlight with two brightness levels facilitates typing in a dark environment.

Dell G15 5530

Touchpad

The touchpad could also use a bit of work from Dell. For instance, besides the somewhat modest size (approx. 10.5 x 6 cm, 4.1 x 2.4 in), we also have gripes about the very loose surface. That said, the touchpad provides an acceptable level of smoothness and precision.

Display

The laptop comes with a 165Hz display as well. However, the panel is different from the one used on the G15 we previously reviewed (see table). This also explains why some of the results obtained for the two displays differ from each other.

* ... smaller is better

Whilst the current panel has a slightly worse black level (0.35 as opposed to 0.21 cd/m²), its average max brightness is a touch higher (374 rather than 316 cd/m²). The other G15 model has better contrast and response time than the review unit. Nonetheless, having a contrast of 1,111:1 and grey-to-grey response time of 8.5 ms is respectable for an IPS panel.

“Respectable” is also an apt description for the colour coverage: even though the 15-inch laptop can’t fully reproduce the DCI-P3 and AdobeRGB colour spaces, having nearly 100% sRGB coverage isn’t a given in the €1,000 (US$1,090) price range, as demonstrated by the Acer Nitro V 15 we recently reviewed, for example.

The viewing angle is fairly typical for an IPS display, i.e. pretty good. Most buyers should also be satisfied with the colour accuracy.

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
6.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.1 ms rise
↘ 3.6 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
8.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.2 ms rise
↘ 4.3 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Whether it has an RTX 4050 or RTX 4060 inside, the Dell G15 5530 is still a mid-range gaming laptop. The 16 GB of DDR5 memory is absolutely sufficient for gaming purposes at the moment; as mentioned above, the slightly meagre 512 GB of SSD storage can be expanded by adding a larger M.2 drive.

Test condition

There are several power modes hidden behind various menus in the preinstalled Dell software. According to our measurements, these modes don’t have any impact on 3D performance, but rather mainly affect how loud the laptop runs (see table). All our tests were thus carried out in “Optimised” mode, which is enabled by default right out of the box. Alternatively, the Alienware Command Center also offers a whole host of customisation options.

Processor

Compared with the Core i7-13650HX, the Core i5-13450HX only has four instead of eight efficiency cores, but the number of performance cores remains the same at six. Both CPUs are from the Raptor Lake generation and fabricated using the improved 10 nm process. Taking all the CPU benchmarks into consideration, the Core i5-13450HX is roughly 15% slower than its more expensive sibling and falls somewhere in between the Core i5-13500H (Medion Erazer Crawler E40) and the Core i7-13620H (Lenovo LOQ 15IRH8). The score decreased slightly over time during our Cinebench loop test, but there weren’t any drastic performance drops.

DPC latency

The 15-inch laptop has weaknesses in the area of latency. LatencyMon reported that the laptop – at least right out of the box – appears to have issues handling real-time audio and video processing. That said, this should only affect those who intend to use the laptop for such purposes.

Mass storage

At first glance, the laptop’s mass storage cuts an excellent figure. Despite its compact size, the 512 GB M.2 2230 drive made by WDC had an extremely good showing in our series of benchmarks. Despite this, our loop test revealed that, under sustained load or stress, the drive sometimes experienced a severe level of throttling not seen in any of the competitors.
