Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 Core i7-1065G7 Review: Faster Than Any XPS 13 Before It

The Intel Athena Poster Child. With mobile AMD Ryzen finally catching up to Intel's long-running ULV Core U series, all eyes have been on Ice Lake and Comet Lake-U to see how Intel would respond. Pressure has been on Dell to knock it out of the park with its second generation XPS 13 2-in-1 especially since it is the first to ship with the Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7. The flagship convertible mostly succeeds with a few caveats.

We recently checked out the $1000 XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 base model with the entry-level Ice Lake Core i3-1005G1 CPU and found it to be pretty good as an overall package. Raw processor performance was somewhat middling considering the price, but the super bright display and overall quality of the system made up for the Core i3-like performance.

For this review, we'll be looking at the $1700 XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 configuration with the high-end Core i7-1065G7 CPU and integrated Iris Plus GPU to see how it compares to the lesser Core i3 option. How much of a performance boost does the quad-core Core i7 offer over the dual-core Core i3? Can you game on the new Iris Plus GPU and is there a battery life deficit with the more powerful processor? 

See our existing review on the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 to learn more about the chassis, display, keyboard, and other physical features. We'll be focusing on all the differences we can find between the Core i3 and Core i7 configurations to help those who may on the fence for a new XPS 13 convertible.

Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 Core i7 is now $400 off with coupon code and rebate cards until October 10. See here for details.

Communication

Strangely, transmit speeds are much lower than expected even when standing just 1 to 2 meters away from the source. The older Qualcomm QCA6174 in the XPS 13 9380 is able to outperform the Wi-Fi 6 compatible Killer AX1650s regardless of of our 1 Gbps-limited server. We suspect this could be a bug or an antennae mishap on our unit.

(October 13, 2019 update: We've determined that the issue may be related to our Netgear EA8500 router rather than the XPS system itself. We will update this section as soon as we can confirm the source of the anomaly.)

Display: Brighter Than Most Ultrabooks

The crisp 16:10 display remains identical to the one on the Core i3 SKU down to the Sharp LQ134N1 panel name. Consequently, our measurements on contrast, response times, brightness, and gamut are quite similar between the two configurations. We'll have to check out the 4K UHD SKU at a later date when stock becomes more readily available.

The one main difference we can notice between our Core i3 and Core i7 SKUs is that the latter suffers from slightly more uneven backlight bleeding. We recommend checking for this just in case if you happen to be on the receiving end of a particularly bad unit.

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
29.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 13.2 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. » 70 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
47.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23.2 ms rise
↘ 24.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 78 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.6 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 2500 Hz ≤ 25 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2500 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 25 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2500 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9279 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance

The 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 succeeds the 9th gen Core i7-8565U by offering both faster CPU performance and significantly faster integrated graphics performance. The Dell convertibles utilizes the faster 25 W version of the i7-1065G7 instead of the 15 W version to better exploit what the processor is capable of. See our overview of the Core i7-1065G7 to find out more about Intel's latest CPU.

Users crossing their fingers for Comet Lake-U options in the future will be out of luck as the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 was designed specifically for Ice Lake. Dell has stated that there are no plans at the moment to introduce hexa-core Comet Lake-U options to the XPS 13 2-in-1 and so it remains exclusive to the XPS 13 7390 clamshell.

LatencyMon continues to show DPC latency issues even when the wireless is disabled.

 

Processor: A Leap Over 9th Generation Whiskey Lake-U

Raw processor performance is very high relative to the chassis size. When running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop, results are essentially on par with the Core i5-9300H in the XPS 15 for the first four loops when Turbo Boost clock rates are highest. Eventually, however, clock rates will drop in order to maintain acceptable temperatures for a performance decrease of almost 20 percent. In other words, processor performance starts out very fast for excellent first impressions before falling rather steeply to be just below the pre-production Core i7-1065G7 unit we tested a few months ago. In contrast, the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 Core i3-1005G1 SKU does not experience any sharp drops in performance over time since its Turbo Boost clock rates are more modest.

Even after accounting for any throttling, the 25 W Core i7 Ice Lake is still faster than its 15 W Whiskey Lake-U predecessor. Raw performance is about 35 percent faster than the Core i7-8565U as found on the less expensive Dell Inspiron 7390 2-in-1 while being more stable than on the XPS 13 9380.

Beyond just raw performance, Ice Lake also introduces AI acceleration and Deep Learning Boost not found on any previous generation Core U series CPU or even the latest 2nd generation AMD Zen+ series. Nonetheless. the practicality of this feature has yet to be fully explored in Windows to really impact any day-to-day usage scenarios.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-1065G7 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance: Faster Than It Looks

PCMark benchmarks show our XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 Core i7 outperforming the Core i3 SKU by 20 to 50 percent. The biggest advantage is in the GPU-intensive Digital Creation benchmark where the integrated Iris Plus GPU is able to flex its muscles over the UHD Graphics G1 of the Core i3 SKU. In fact, overall results are faster than even the fastest XPS 13 9380 configuration available.

The unit doesn't exhibit any audio or USB problems that our last Core i3 unit did.

GPU Performance: Good Enough For Undemanding Multiplayer Games

Graphics performance is where things get tricky. It's true that the new integrated Iris Plus is leagues beyond the UHD Graphics 620, but real-world performance is much more variable depending on the game, API or application. As mentioned here, 3DMark results translate poorly to real-world gaming performance especially when comparing two different GPU families. The GeForce MX250, for example, is about 17 to 36 percent faster than our Iris Plus according to 3DMark benchmarks. In reality, the MX250 can offer 50 to 70 percent faster frame rates over the Iris Plus depending on the title.

If you're a casual player of CS:GO, Fortnite, Rocket League, or DOTA 2, then the Iris Plus can get the job done at 1080p or 720p at worse. For more demanding titles like Overwatch or Destiny 2, you'd be much better off with a GeForce MX150 or MX250 instead.
