Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610: The non-GPU model adds a limited amount of performance

Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 review: It doesn't last longer in the WiFi test without the Geforce.
The "smaller" Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 without a GeForce RTX attracts all those who don't want to make do without a powerful, high-resolution display but are willing to forgo a Geforce RTX graphics card to improve mobility. Does this bring a higher battery life and more headroom for the Core i7? Only to a limited extent.

We tested the Inspiron 16 Plus again, but this time without the dGPU and again with the Core i7. In the first test, we had complained about the weak Turbo performance of the Intel SoC, which was below average. Will the version without the RTX graphics perhaps do a better job because the two fans now only have to cool the processor? 

Those who have such an expectation will be disappointed. The processor is only slightly faster at best in the beginning of the performance development, but continuing the test, its computation speed is just as below-average as that of its sibling with the RTX accompaniment. 

However, the iGPU version still has some advantages. These include the lower power costs, a cooler case, and as far as idle operation goes, a longer battery life. On the other hand, the iGPU version doesn't last any longer in the realistic WiFi test.

You can find all the detailed information in our test of the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7610 iGPU.
