Dell Inspiron 15 5518 laptop in review: The CPU is slowed down

Uneven package. The Inspiron 15 5518 offers a Core i5-11300H processor, a GeForce-MX450 GPU and 8 GB of working memory. The latter works in single-channel mode. Positive: The notebook delivers very good battery runtimes and offers space for two NVMe SSDs.

Case & features - The Inspiron comes with a chic metal case

Dell relies on a sleek, chic design with smooth surfaces for the Inspiron's slim, matte-silver-gray metal caseThe laptop does not reveal any manufacturing flaws, but it should be stiffer overallThe base unit and lid can be twisted too much. The battery is firmly installed. The innards are accessible after removing the bottom shell.

The Inspiron has two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and one USB-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 2x2; Core i7 models: Thunderbolt 4). The latter supports Power Delivery and Displayport-per-USB-C. Thus, the 5518 has two video outputs together with the HDMI slot. The SD memory card reader (reference card: AV PRO SD 128 GB V60) belongs to the slow models.

The WLAN data rates determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices in the near vicinity, short distance between notebook and server PC; router: Netgear Nighthawk AX12) turn out well, but remain slightly below the capabilities of the installed Intel AX201 chip.

Input devices - Dell 5518 offers key illumination

The slightly roughened keys of the illuminated chiclet keyboard have a short stroke and a clear pressure point. The key resistance is pleasing. The keyboard yields a bit during typing - more in the center than at the edges. The illumination (two brightness levels) is controlled via a function key. All in all, Dell delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday use here.

The multi-touch capable ClickPad (approx. 11.5 x 8 cm/~4.5 x 3.2 in) responds to inputs even in the corners. The smooth surface makes it easy for the fingers to glide. The pad has a short stroke and a clear pressure point.

Display - IPS on board

While the matte 15.6-inch display (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) delivers a good contrast (1,040:1), the brightness (267.8 cd/m²) is too low. The value drops a bit further in battery mode. We consider values beyond 300 cd/m² to be good.

The screen shows flickering with a frequency of 1,000 Hz at brightness levels of 90 percent and below. Due to the quite high frequency, sensitive people should be spared from headaches and/or eye problems.

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
31 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 14 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 240 (maximum) ms. » 79 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21 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 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 54 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37 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 detected 1000 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 1000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 1000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21941 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The screen has a decent color reproduction in its state of delivery, but the colors deviate a bit from the target - the whole thing is still within an acceptable range. It does not suffer from a blue cast. The display cannot reproduce the AdobeRGB (41%), sRGB (59%) and DCI-P3 (40%) color spaces.

Processor

The Core i7-11300H-Quad-core processor (Tiger Lake) works with a base clock of 3.1 GHz. An increase to 4 GHz (four cores) up to 4.4 GHz (one core) is possible via Turbo. Hyperthreading (two threads per core) is supported.

The multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark is run at 3.3 to 4 GHz for a short time, then the clock fluctuates between 600 MHz and 3 GHz. The single-thread test is run with 1.6 to 4.4 GHz. The clock rates are lower in battery mode.

Dell has chosen relatively low power limits for the CPU. As a result, the 11300H remains below its capabilities, as a comparison with the benchmark results of the Ideapad 5 Pro 16IHU6 shows. The gap is significantly larger in the multi-thread tests than in the single-thread tests.

We check whether the CPU Turbo is also used permanently in mains operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark in a loop for at least 30 minutes. The Turbo is only used at the beginning, usually the base clock is undercut. The "Ultra Performance" profile lets the CPU run at higher speeds.

System performance

The nimble and smoothly working system provides enough performance for all common application areas. The basically good PCMark results are a bit behind the competition.

Part of the performance remains unused due to the working memory running in single-channel modeDual-channel mode could be activated by installing a second memory module.

The notebook has two working memory banks.

Mass storage

The transfer rates of the512 GB NVMe SSD (M.2-2230) are good, but it is not one of the top SSDs. The use of an SSD in 2280 format requires the mounting bracket to be relocated. The second M.2 slot can only accommodate models in the 2230 format.

An NVMe SSD serves as the system drive.

Graphics card

The GeForce-MX450 GPU (Turing) is Nvidia's current mid-range model. It is supported by fast GDDR5 memory (2,048 MB) that is connected via a 64-bit line. The 3DMark results are on par with the MX450 average that we have determined so far. The "Ultra Performance" profile does not affect the graphics performance.

Gaming performance

Most games in our database achieve playable frame rates at low resolutions and low to medium quality levels. Titles with moderate hardware requirements allow more. The frame rates are slightly below the MX450 average. The Inspiron cannot keep up with the excellent rates of the Lenovo Ideapad 5 Pro 16IHU6.

To check whether the frame rates remain largely constant over a longer period, we run the game "The Witcher 3" for about 60 minutes with Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings. The game character is not moved. The GPU clock is lowered slightly after just under two minutes, but this does not affect the frame rates.
