Reviews for the Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1

83% Dell Precision 5530 2-in-1 (i7-8706G, Radeon WX Vega M GL, 4K UHD) Workstation Review | Notebookcheck
As if Kaby Lake-G wasn't niche enough already, Dell has gone the extra mile by offering a workstation convertible equipped with the rare Intel-AMD CPU. The end result is one of the most powerful 15-inch convertible workstations available even if it sacrifices some common connectivity features along the way.

Dell's Precision 5530 2-in-1 takes the company's XPS 15 2-in-1 convertible and turns it into a mobile workstation with solid performance and a spiffy 4K touch screen, though like all 15.6-inch hybrids it's too heavy for tablet use.

AMD WX Vega M GL: Integrated professional graphics card in the slower Kaby Lake-G SoCs. Offers 20 CUs = 1280 shaders at 931 - 1011 MHz, 4 GB HBM2 graphics memory (on the same package as the GPU and CPU). The TDP is specified at 65 Watt. Technically identical to the Radeon RX Vega M GL but with support for professional drivers. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8706G: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 3.1 - 4.1 GHz. Integrates 4GB fast HBM2 graphics memory that may also be used as a CPU cache and including the high TDP of 65 Watts may lead to a higher CPU performance compared to the similar Core i7-7920HQ. Similar to the Core i7-8705G, but with support for vPro (the only Kaby Lake-G CPU with vPro support).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
