Dell G16 7620 laptop review: Thick build for fast performance

Dell's first 16-inch gaming laptop. Dell's latest midrange gaming laptop isn't afraid to be bigger and heavier than others in order to squeeze more performance from the Intel 12th gen CPU and GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. Nonetheless, core temperatures could still be a little cooler across the board.

The Dell G series consists of budget to midrange gaming laptops in contrast to the higher-end Alienware series. The series is just a couple of years old with initial G15 and G17 models covering the 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch form factors, respectively. For 2022, Dell has introduced a 16-inch model called the G16 complete with the latest Intel 12th gen Core-H series CPUs and Nvidia RTX Ampere GPUs.

Our unit in review is a midrange configuration with the Core i7-12700H CPU and 130 W GeForce RTX 3060 GPU for approximately $1500 USD retail. Other SKUs are available with the slower RTX 3050 Ti, faster RTX 3070 Ti, or Core i9-12900H instead. All current configurations otherwise come with the same 16-inch 1600p 165 Hz display.

Competitors in this space include other 16-inch gaming laptops like the Lenovo Legion 7 16, HP Victus 16, Asus ROG Zephyrus M16, or Acer Swift X SFX16.

Case — A bigger G15

The overall design has many similarities to the existing 16:9 15.6-inch Dell G15 but revamped for the new 16:10 form factor. The obsidian plastic base and anodized aluminum lid materials remain the same for the familiar smooth texture and feel. "Gamer" aesthetics like the glossy inner display bezel or RGB ring of the Alienware laptops are not present on the G series.

Chassis rigidity is firm around the base and keyboard center where flexing and twisting are minimal. The lid exhibits relatively more flexing but not by significant margins to be of any concern.

Dell gaming laptops are typically heavier than the competition and the G16 is no exception. At 2.6 kg, the model is heavier than the HP Victus 16, Acer Swift X, and Asus Zephyrus M16 by several hundred grams each. The G16 is consequently thicker than most other gaming laptops in its size category as well.

Connectivity — Thunderbolt 4 Support

Port options are most similar to the HP Victus 16 albeit rearranged. In fact, half the ports on the G16 are along the rear due to the large ventilation grilles on the left and right edges. We would like to see more USB-C ports in the future as there is only one compared to three on the competing Lenovo Legion 5 Pro.

Communication — 6 GHz Not Included

An Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. There are no Wi-Fi 6E options likely to save on costs. Transfer rates are otherwise steady if not unimpressive when paired to our AXE11000 router.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 8 Philips screws for easy servicing. Users have direct access to 2x DDR5 SODIMM slots, 1x M.2 2280 SSD slot, battery, and removable M.2 WLAN module. The heat pipes and processors are on the opposite side and require further disassembly to access.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — No More Numpad

Keyboard

While Dell could have easily used the exact same G15 keyboard for its new G16 model, they have instead opted for a completely different one. The G16 keyboard has dropped the numpad for full-size arrow keys which is a mixed bag depending on the application or game. On the bright side, key feedback feels crisper and firmer than on the G15 for a more satisfying typing experience.

Annoyingly, users will have to pay more for the per-key RGB lighting feature on the G16. The model otherwise comes with a single-zone blue LED backlight as shown by our images below.

Touchpad

At just 10.5 x 6 cm, the G16 clickpad is one of the smallest clickpads we've seen on any laptop in this price range. The clickpad on the Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 is 11.5 x 8 cm in comparison. The small size isn't a deal breaker, however, as the target audience of gamers will likely have a mouse ready at all times, anyway.

Display — IPS, Full sRGB, 165 Hz, And Fast Response Times

The panel here is similar to the one currently shipping with the Lenovo Legion 7 16ARHA7 as they share the same manufacturer, same high refresh rate, same resolution, same 100% sRGB target, and even nearly identical contrast ratios and black-white response times. Image quality is significantly better than the Chi Mei panel as found on the HP Victus 16. Though it's kind of a bummer that there are no other options to choose from, it at least means that all G16 owners should be getting the same excellent viewing experience with no unexpected low-end display configurations.

Colors are decently calibrated out of the box even though Dell runs no pre-calibration procedures for the G16. Calibrating the panel ourselves with an X-Rite colorimeter would improve average grayscale and color DeltaE values just marginally from 3.2 and 1.78 to 2.1 and 1.22, respectively. An end-user calibration is therefore not necessary for most owners.

Users can apply our calibrated profile above for a more accurate display.

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
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 5.2 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
8.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.4 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is decent if under shade, but glare becomes too heavy if under brighter ambient lighting. Alternatives like the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16 or Legion 7 16 have much brighter displays of around 500 nits each if outdoor visibility is a concern.

Performance — Faster Than Average

 
 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Performance mode via Windows and Ultra Performance mode via the My Dell software prior to running any benchmarks below. We also made sure to disable Optimus and set the system to discrete GPU mode via the Nvidia Control Panel. It's recommended that owners become familiar with My Dell and Dell Update as these two pre-installed applications are vital for adjusting the behavior of the system.

Processor

Multi-thread performance is excellent with results that are 5 to 10 percent faster than the average laptop in our database with the same Core i7-12700H CPU. The CPU is about 20 to 30 percent faster than even the last generation Core i9-11900H in multi-threaded workloads, but single-thread performance can be slower by up to 10 percent.

Upgrading to the Core i9-12900H is expected to boost performance only by about 5 percent based on our experience with the Alienware x15 R2. Thus, the Core i7-12700H is the much better option in terms of performance-per-dollar.

Performance sustainability is excellent and better than on the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7620 equipped with the same CPU as shown by our CineBench R15 xT loop test comparison graph below.

The motherboard has space for up to two M.2 2280 SSDs as shown by our images below. However, all configurations at the moment are shipping with the second connector removed meaning the G16 can support up to one internal M.2 2280 SSD only.

Our test unit ships with the upper midrange WDC PC SN810 PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD for theoretical sequential read and write rates of up to 6000 MB/s and 4000 MB/s, respectively, according to the manufacturer. The drive in our unit is able to reach 6700 MB/s, but it is unable to sustain these fast speeds for extended periods. When running DiskSpd in a loop, for example, read rates would eventually throttle to as low as 3500 MB/s.

Dell G16 7620: Ø5931 (2724.62-6828.33)

GPU Performance — 130 W TGP Graphics

Graphics performance is excellent with results that are 5 to 10 percent faster than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same GeForce RTX 3060 GPU. Overall performance is now within 10 percent of a proper desktop RTX 3060. This is partly due to the 130 W TGP target of the Dell G16 which is on the higher-end of the spectrum when it comes to gaming laptops.

Upgrading to the RTX 3070 Ti configuration is expected to boost graphics performance by about 20 to 30 percent while downgrading to the RTX 3050 Ti configuration will decrease performance by about 30 to 35 percent.

Running on Optimized mode instead of Ultra Performance mode impacts performance very slightly. A Fire Strike test on Optimized mode would return Physics and Graphics scores of 26289 and 21492 points, respectively, compared to 27735 and 21584 points when on Ultra Performance.
