Dell Inspiron 13 5310 review: More graphics, more battery life

The small cooling system is overextended. Dell's 13-inch Inspiron 13 5310 combines everything your heart desires: A powerful Intel-H processor with 35 watts, a dedicated graphics card, a matte sRGB display in the Full HD resolution, and two Thunderbolt 4 ports, in addition to a large 56-Wh battery. What could possibly go wrong with this?

A powerful Intel-H processor with 35 watts next to a dedicated graphics card, what more could you wish for?
A powerful Intel-H processor with 35 watts next to a dedicated graphics card, what more could you wish for?

It's just been a few months ago that we had the Inspiron 13 5301, a 13-inch laptop with a 15-Watt Tiger Lake SoC and Iris Xe graphics, in our test. Although the labeling is hardly any different, the actual differences to the Inspiron 13 5310 that we are currently testing are fundamental: a 35-Watt processor, Nvidia MX450 graphics, 2 x Thunderbolt 4, and 54 instead of 40 watthours. While the cases appear very similar, we cannot really speak about an identical build, since the connections on both sides have changed. 

Dell's Inspiron 13 5310 targets mobile buyers who want as much performance as possible in a compact, mobile laptop. With a weight of 1.3 kg (~3 lb) and a battery life of more than 10 hours, this is what they also get here. In addition, there is a bright, non-reflective display delivering powerful sRGB colors. With all this, it can really only become a recommendation, or can it?

There is a broad selection of competitors, although 13-inch laptops with comparable graphics are rare. In this regard, there is only the HP Envy 13-ba1475ng here. The HP Pavilion Aero 13 be0097nr and the Asus ZenBook 13 UM325S are less powerfully equipped with their Vega 8s, as is also the Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA with Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs. You can find the corresponding comparisons in the Performance section below.

The lid and top of the base are made from aluminum, which provides the 13-inch laptop with high-quality haptics as well as a decent stability. The case can only be warped minimally, and the hinges are up to their task. However, the stability hits its limits below the keyboard and in the top area of the palm rests, where surfaces bend under even a slight amount of pressure, such as when we press down in the top third of the ClickPad. 

The easy maintenance deserves some praise. After removing numerous screws, you can simply lift off the bottom plate, as long as you start at the hinge. Unfortunately, the working memory is soldered in, so you are committed to the 8 GB when you purchase the device. You can only replace the M.2 2280 SSD and the Wi-Fi card. The double fans are necessary because of the high TDP, and in addition to the 35-Watt CPU, they also have to cool the Geforce MX450 at the same time. 

While there is no card reader, there are two Thunderbolt 4 (Type-C) ports that both support DisplayPort. One of them can also handle Power Delivery, and this is also the only way to charge the laptop with the corresponding 65-Watt charger. The remaining USB Type-A port is implemented as a fold-out port, which is a good solution for the visuals.  

Wi-Fi 6 AX201 from Intel is used as the WLAN. In our test with our Netgear Nighthawk RAX120 reference router, the transfer rates range between good and slightly below average. Bluetooth 5.2 is included, but nothing else is possible in terms of low power.

As the webcam, a 720p module with a mechanical shutter continues to be used. It does not offer a good image quality even in good light conditions. There is no IR camera, so Windows Hello cannot be used.

Input Devices

The gray chiclet keyboard suffers from its weak support below, which becomes particularly noticeable when you press the keys with some force. The matte, non-slip keys offer a pronounced pressure point, a moderate stroke height, and a soft stroke. Typing occurs almost silently. Thanks to the white, two-step keyboard background illumination, you can also work without any problems in darker surroundings. 

Overall, you can work swiftly using the large Shift, Ctrl, and arrow keys in the wide keyboard area, without the spongy base becoming much of a problem.  

The ClickPad is responsive up to the corners, offers a short stroke height, and operates almost silently. While we find the short stroke unsatisfactory, this might be a matter of personal taste. The matte surface offers a low resistance to the fingers and is not slippery. 

Making full use of the available area, the keyboard has some slight give under strong pressure.

The Full HD AUO panel offers several advantages. It is bright, non-reflective, covers 100% of the sRGB color space, and offers IPS typical wide viewing angles. Sure, the brightness could even be higher for using it outside, but with 318 cd/m² you already have something to work with, particularly since there is no throttling in battery operation.

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
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 49 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
39 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 20 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 45 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.8 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 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

We like the color accuracy: Already in the state of delivery, the Delta E values for the Grayscale and colors are lower than 2.0. So a calibration with the photo spectrometer would be unnecessary, since your eyes would not notice any change, even if there were some more improvements.

Performance

A 35-Watt Intel SoC and Nvidia dGPU mean that you need a double fan here.
A 35-Watt Intel SoC and Nvidia dGPU mean that you need a double fan here.

With a Core i5-11300H, 8 GB of onboard RAM (not expandable!), an Nvidia MX450, and a 512 GB SSD from Toshiba, not only does the 5310 correspond to the current state of the art, but it is also a small power house. Those who need even more can also pick the i7-11370H version with 16 GB of RAM. This decision should be well considered, since you cannot expand the RAM. 

Processor

Our test unit contains the Core i5-11300H with four cores and a theoretical maximum Turbo clock speed of up to 4.4 GHz (single core). The 35-Watt SoC is really meant for gaming laptops and workstations, and 15-Watt chips are more the standard in subnotebooks

While the processor is able to briefly use up to 28 watts (package power @4.1 GHz) initially, the consumption levels out at 22 watts after several seconds, which corresponds to 4x 2.8 GHz. This configuration is conservative and far from the 35 watts that the SoC should really be able to handle. The limiting factor is the small cooling system of a 13-inch laptop here, bursting our bubble of expecting an amazing performance. 

The R15 loop clearly shows that the the i5-11300H is barely ahead of the 15-Watt Tiger Lake i5/i7, particularly under constant load. However, compared to the AMD Ryzen 5000, it has a disadvantage that is very clear (-38%). The single benchmarks show the same picture: just barely better than the Core i7-1165G7 but clearly behind the Ryzen 7 5800U.

System Performance

Despite the slightly sobering CPU performance, the subjective impression of the system performance is excellent. First, this is a capable and powerful mobile processor, and second the Dell 5310 is of course also equipped with a fast NVMe SSD, so inputs are implemented without any noticeable delays. The synthetic PCMark 10 benchmark also determines good results in the middle of the field.

DPC Latencies

In our standardized latency test (surfing the Internet, YouTube 4K video reproduction, CPU load), our test unit shows some problems with elevated latencies. The reason are the ACPI drivers. This means that the driver configuration we have here is therefore not suited for real-time audio applications. However, there were no dropped frames during video reproduction.

Storage Solution

While the Toshiba NVMe SSD is able to stand up well against the Intel SSDs, it does not belong to the top league. The SK Hynix in the Asus ZenBook 13 UM325S shows us what is possible here.

Graphics Card

The MX450 (Turing TU117M) is the second most powerful N18S-G5 version with a 64 bit connection and 1395 to 1575 MHz in addition to GDDR6. It consumes up to 25 watts, which is the reason for our device to need a second fan.

N18S-G5-B: GBD-128 Package, 1395 - 1575 MHz, GDDR6 5001 MHz, 28.5 W

N18S-G5: GB2E-64 Package, 1395 - 1575 MHz, GDDR6 5001 MHz, 25 W

N18S-G5: GB2E-64 Package, 1395 - 1575 MHz, GDDR5 3501 MHz, 25 W

N18S-LP: GB2E-64 Package, 720 - 930 MHz, GDDR6 5001 MHz, 12 W

In addition to the GeForce MX450 GPU, there is also the integrated Intel Iris Xe 80EUs graphics. In the synthetic benchmarks, the MX450 is joining the top, performing at the level of the Iris Xe Graphics G7 96EUs. It is 20-40% ahead of the Vega 8
