Dell G7 17 7790 (i7-8750H, RTX 2070 Max-Q) Laptop Review

Now with blue heat pipes. The latest mid-range gaming laptop from Dell incorporates features from both the entry-level G3 series and the higher-end Alienware series. Even so, the system is relatively heavy and even heavier than the 17.3-inch Alienware m17 by several hundred grams.

Unveiled at CES 2019, the G7 17 7790 is the first 17.3-inch model for the G7 family of gaming laptops. It is positioned above the entry-level Dell G3 series and below the enthusiast Alienware series to be a mid-range offering with a very wide selection of SKUs.

Our test unit today is the higher-end configuration equipped with the Intel 8th gen Core i7-8750H CPU and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Turing GPU retailing for about $1800 USD. Lesser configuration are available with Core i5 and GTX 1660 Ti graphics for a lower starting price of $1200 USD. The G7 17 7790 competes directly with other upper mid-range 17.3-inch gaming laptops including the Lenovo Legion Y740, HP Omen 17, Asus ROG GL704, Acer Predator Helios 500, and MSI GS75.

Case

The most visually distinctive feature of the G7 7790 is the horizontal stripes along the edges and corners of the chassis. It's purely aesthetic and contrasts well with the honeycomb design of the pricier Alienware Area-51m or Alienware m17 G2. The Dell logo, default keyboard lighting, and even heat pipes are all shades of light blue to accentuate the "gaming" aspect of the Dell G Series. It may not be the most attractive to our eyes, but it's definitely novel in the gaming laptop space.

Chassis rigidity is excellent and surprisingly tough around the base. The palm rests and keyboard center exhibit almost no flexing when applying pressure and side-to-side twisting is a non-issue with almost no creaking. The lid is comparatively weaker and more susceptible to both flexing and depressions especially down the outer center or from its top corners, but this is expected on large 17.3-inch laptops. The lids of the Lenovo Legion Y740 and Razer Blade Pro 17 are weaker and stronger, respectively.

Build quality is excellent with no unintended gaps or crevices between materials on our test unit including along the bottom edge of the screen. Nonetheless, be prepared for fingerprints everywhere around the case. Much like on the Alienware m15, there is a glossy stripe across the Power button that will attract fingerprints like no tomorrow.

The narrower side bezels of the Dell G7 make it shorter in width than the competing MSI GL73 and Lenovo Legion Y740 which have thicker bezels. Because the larger rear ventilation extends the length of the chassis, however, the Dell laptop is longer in length than the aforementioned MSI and Lenovo. The overall chassis footprint is thus squarer than many other 17.3-inch gaming laptops.

One of the biggest drawbacks about the system is its hefty weight of 3.2 kg to be several hundred grams heavier than the Lenovo Legion Y740, Asus TUF FX705DT, and the Dell G3 17. There's no question that this is a heavy laptop even when considering its size category and this is perhaps the price to pay for a rigid build.

Connectivity

Available ports are actually quite similar to the Alienware m17 albeit rearranged and without the Graphics Amplifier port. Users get optional Thunderbolt 3 and a USB Type-A port on each of the three sides of the chassis. Most of the ports are located towards the rear of the unit where they can be inconvenient to reach. In contrast, laptops like the MSI GS75 have no ports on the rear.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the integrated card reader are limited to about 34 MB/s. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 36 seconds compared to under 8 seconds on the XPS 15.

The card reader slot is not spring-loaded. A fully inserted SD card still protrudes by about half its length for unsafe transport.

Communication

Dell has equipped the G7 17 with the same Killer 1550 WLAN module as on the higher-end XPS and Alienware systems. Users will have access to a variety of gaming-centric features as described here.

Note that the product page for the G7 17 incorrectly lists Bluetooth 4.2 when all available SKUs come standard with Bluetooth 5.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 10 Philips screws. Servicing is very easy with no anti-tamper stickers or sharp edges to speak of. Users have direct access to both SODIMM slots, internal batteries, WLAN module, and storage bays.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the usual AC adapter and Quick Start guides. The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies with up to four-year extensions if desired.

Input Devices

Keyboard

We find the keyboard keys to be surprisingly firm relative to their low-moderate clatter. Feedback is crisper, deeper, and generally more satisfying than on the Razer Blade 15 series. The notable exceptions are the directional keys and NumPad keys which are smaller than the main QWERTY keys. As a result, these keys can feel cramped to use for long periods. For such a large chassis, there is less of an excuse to offer full-size Arrow keys and NumPad keys since more space is available.

Quad-zone RGB lighting comes standard in contrast to the single-zone lighting of the Dell G3 17 or per-key RGB lighting of most newer Alienware machines. The laptop uses the same AlienFX and Alienware Command Center software for lighting control as does the Alienware Area-51m, Alienware m15, and Alienware m17.

Touchpad

The clickpad surface is slightly roughened in contrast to the otherwise smooth palm rests and outer lid to improve traction and reduce sticking. Surface area is decent for the large screen size albeit still smaller than the clickpads on some Ultrabooks like the Huawei MateBook X Pro (10.5 x 8 cm vs. 12 x 7.8 cm). Although the surface still feels slightly sticky when gliding across very slowly, we experienced no cursor jumping or reliability issues during use.

The integrated mouse keys are shallow in travel with relatively weak feedback when pressed. A firmer click would have helped make it less spongy.

Display

All G7 7790 SKUs as of this writing ship with no other display options beyond the default 1080p 144 Hz matte IPS display. A closer look at the panel reveals it to be the AU Optronics AUO409D which can also be found on several 17.3-inch Asus laptops including the TUF FX705GM, ROG Strix Scar II GL704GW and GL704GM, and the Zephyrus S GX701GX. All these laptops subsequently share similar contrast ratios, response times, and color coverage. When compared to the budget Sharp panel on the Zephyrus G GA502, this AU Optronics panel is definitely of higher quality with less ghosting and deeper colors overall. We're glad to see more manufacturers phasing out 60 Hz in favor of 144 Hz as it's tough to go back to 60 Hz once you become accustomed to the smoothness of higher refresh rates.

Note that the older AU Optronics panel on the cheaper Dell G3 17 offers slower response times and a lower native refresh rate of just 60 Hz.

Graininess is minimal and a non-issue on the matte panel for crisp texts and images. Moderate uneven backlight bleeding is present along the top edge of our display test unit that becomes noticeable if viewing videos with black borders.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter reveal below average grayscale and colors due to the color temperature being too cool out of the box. Once calibrated, however, grayscale improves significantly from an average DeltaE of 5 to 1.7 leading to more accurate colors overall. We recommend an end-user calibration if possible to get the most out of the display. If not, users can still apply our ICM profile linked above.

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
12 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6.8 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.7 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9354 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is average at best since the laptop was not designed to be used outdoors for long periods. We recommend working under shade if possible as anything brighter will wash out the screen. Viewing angles are wide with minimal glare; contrast and colors will shift slightly if viewing from extreme angles.

Performance

Dell is no stranger to offering a very wide selection of SKUs and configurations for its PCs and the G7 7790 is no different. Users can configure from the Core i5-9300H with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics up to the Core i7-9750H and RTX 2070 Max-Q. These 9th gen Intel and Nvidia Turing options supplant last year's 8th gen Intel and Nvidia Pascal options of yesteryear.

Our test unit is equipped with an 8th gen Intel Core i7-8750H instead of the newer 9th gen Core i7-9750H. Our benchmarks below, however, will show that this does not necessarily put the G7 17 in a disadvantageous position.

Optimus is included by default and so Nvidia G-Sync is unavailable across the lineup.

Processor

CineBench R15
CineBench R15

CPU performance is excellent with good sustainability over long periods of stress. When running CineBench R15 in a loop, for example, the initial score of 1190 points drop by only 8.8 percent over time. Performance is better than the newer Core i7-9750H in the Razer Blade 15 even after accounting for performance throttling as shown by our comparison graph below.

Users can expect a rough 60 percent performance boost if upgrading from the old Core i7-7700HQ. The lower-end SKU with the Core i5-8300H is about 30 percent slower than our Core i7-8750H SKU.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-8750H for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Storage Devices

Two internal storage bays (M.2 2280 + 2.5-inch SATA III) are available. Our specific test unit utilizes an entry-level 256 GB Toshiba BG3 KBG30ZMS256G NVMe SSD and a secondary 1 TB Seagate ST1000LM035 5400 RPM HDD.

Sequential transfer rates from the Toshiba drive are slow for an NVMe SSD. Read and write rates are only about 1000 MB/s and 200 MB/s, respectively, compared to nearly 2000 MB/s from the more expensive Samsung PM981. Pricier gaming laptops from MSI or Razer are typically equipped with faster NVMe drives. The performance differences between NVMe SSDs shouldn't be an issue for most gamers.

See our table of HDDs and SSDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

The RTX 2070 Max-Q is only 8 to 9 percent slower than the standard mobile RTX 2070. The desktop RTX 2070, however, will still outperform our RTX 2070 Max-Q by about 36 to 44 percent. Users who opt for the lesser GTX 1660 Ti SKUs will see a performance deficit of about 25 percent.

It's important to note that the RTX 2070 Max-Q is about 19 percent and 42 percent faster than the GTX 1070 Max-Q according to 3DMark Fire Strike and Time Spy, respectively. This means that users benefit more from the Turing series when running DX12-enabled titles.

Gaming Performance

All titles are playable at maximum settings because of the "low" native resolution of 1080p. Less demanding titles like Rocket League or Fortnite will be playable at a steady 144 FPS to make the most of the 144 Hz refresh rate. Running Witcher 3 shows no recurring frame dips to represent no interrupting background activity when gaming.

See our dedicated page on the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q for more benchmark comparisons.
