84.5% Dell G7 15 (i7-8750H, GTX 1060 Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
New name, same value. Dell's latest entry into the budget gaming market changes branding but keeps the value. Does the new G7 offer as much bang-for-the-buck as the uber-popular Inspiron 15 7577? Find out in our comprehensive review.
70% Dell G7 15 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Dell's G Series notebook is an emphatic step toward the future that maintains a few good lessons from the past. Visually, the G7 15 is cut from a different cloth than either the Inspiron or the Alienware brands, giving the laptop an identity of its own. For $1,049, the laptop offers solid overall performance for all your multitasking needs. But more importantly, thanks to its Max-Q GTX 1060, budget-conscious gamers can get good frame rates on graphically taxing games. I just wish the screen were more colorful and the keyboard more comfortable.

82% Dell G7 15 Gaming Laptop Review
Source: PC World English
Dell touts its G7 series of laptops as a “complete sensory experience” for the gamer on a budget. Launched earlier this year, the line’s $1,180 starting price is an attractive number for those seeking the powerful portable gaming experience Dell promises. That price also puts it in direct competition with Acer’s Predator Helios 300, which landed on PC Gamer’s best gaming laptop list. After spending some time with the G7 15, however, I can say that it provides some of the best performance and value in the budget gaming class of laptops, and stands toe-to-toe with Acer’s offering.

Dell G7 15 (7588) review: A hex-core gaming laptop that won’t break the bank
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Armed with a screamingly fast hex-core CPU and a fairly potent graphics card, the $1,200 Dell G7 15 packs an impressive amount of processing and gaming power into a shell that’s less than an inch thick. Gamers looking for the highest frame rates possible will find better value in a quad-core laptop with a beefier GPU, while those in search of a thinner and lighter hex-core gaming laptop should check out the pricey MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE. But if you’re on a budget and want enough CPU power to stream or create videos while gaming, the G7 15 is (for now, at least) an enticing, reasonably priced choice.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP106 chip as the normal GTX 1060 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
