Reviews for the Dell Precision 3540-FDYDK

Review – Dell Precision 3540
Source: NLT English
In terms of the overall user experience and the I/O ports, it’s actually quite solid. That extra Thunderbolt 3 port at the left side is a huge plus. For the hardware, I really recommend getting a configuration with a better CPU. This Intel Core i5-8365U processor is just not sufficient for rendering work. Maybe Dell should explore AMD’s Ryzen processors as an alternative? They offer better base clocks with similar boost clock speeds. Looking at the market now, AMD-powered laptops are much lower in price, yet still with 4 cores and 8 threads.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
