Much like how Dell accelerated the adoption of narrow-bezel laptops with the 2015 XPS 13 and XPS 15, Dell now wants to accelerate the adoption of 16:10 laptops with the 2020 XPS 13 9300 and inevitable 2020 XPS 15. We've already reviewed the FHD+ (1920 x 1200) versions of the XPS 13 9300, so this review will focus on the 4K UHD+ (3840 x 2400) configuration which represents the highest option currently available.

For more information on the chassis and its features, we recommend checking out our existing reviews on the FHD XPS 13 below as this page will focus on the 4K display and any battery life or performance differences between it and the FHD SKUs. Direct competitors include other high-end Wiindows subnotebooks like the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 13, Asus ZenBook 13, Lenovo IdeaPad S940, HP Spectre 13, or the Huawei MateBook X Pro. None, however, come with 16:10 displays.

Display

Whereas the FHD configuration carries the panel name Sharp LQ134N1, our 4K UHD panel is called the Sharp LQ134R1. Dell advertises a brightness of 500 nits and a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and our independent measurements can certainly confirm the latter at 1479:1. Unfortunately, we're only able to record a brightness of 414 nits even when set to the maximum brightness setting with both adaptive brightness turned off and Intel Display Power Savings disabled. The 4K UHD panel is dimmer than on both our FHD test units where we were able to measure 600 nits each.

Nonetheless, there are a couple of noteworthy advantages over the FHD panel other than resolution. Firstly, the 4K panel does not suffer from pulse-width modulation at any brightness level which suggests that Dell is using a different LED backlight for its 4K SKUs. The fact that there is a brightness difference between the FHD and 4K SKUs supports our speculation. Secondly, black-white and gray-gray response times are a bit faster on the 4K panel meaning ghosting is not as severe. The opposite is usually true between FHD and 4K panels and so this is an unexpected advantage.

* ... smaller is better

Color space is not any wider than the FHD option despite the denser PPI. We're able to measure ~91 percent sRGB coverage or 61 percent AdobeRGB to be on par with other flagship subnotebooks. Some larger 4K UHD laptops like the XPS 15 or ZenBook Pro series are able to cover AdobeRGB almost completely for deeper colors.

Measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter reveal accurate colors and grayscale although the latter could certainly be a little better. RGB balance and gamma have room for improvement according to our measurements and, strangely, attempting to calibrate the 4K panel ourselves would throw off the color temperature for a slightly worse picture overall. Results are opposite to what we observed on the FHD XPS 9300 where picture would noticeably improve after calibration.

All XPS 13 9300 SKUs integrate Eyesafe technology which means their displays have been pre-calibrated to reduce blue light emissions without impacting the profile or accuracy of the colors. Dell is the first to integrate such a feature onto a consumer laptop.

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
25.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.6 ms rise
↘ 10 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. » 45 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23.2 ms rise
↘ 18.4 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. » 54 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39.2 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 not detected

In comparison: 50 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18084 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is good when under shade even though some glare will always be present. We recommend disabling the Intel Display Power Saver setting or else maximum brightness will automatically drop to 358 nits instead of the maximum of 414 nits. Viewing angles are otherwise excellent with very small changes in contrast and colors if viewing from extreme angles. Apparent brightness, however, will dip as expected.

Performance

Processor

The Ice Lake-U CPU starts out strong before plateauing in performance if subjected to extreme stress for long periods. When running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop, for example, scores would dip by about 25 percent after the first loop. In real-world scenarios, this means that the XPS 13 9300 can be very fast at launching applications or multi-tasking between windows where short bursts in clock rates are helpful, but extended stress like video editing would be merely average. In fact, raw CPU performance is only about 10 percent faster than the lesser Core i5-1035G1 option after accounting for any performance throttling. Note that all benchmarks below were performed on Dell's Ultra Performance mode.

Interestingly, CPU clock rates would dip sooner on our 4K UHD test unit than on our FHD test unit even though both are equipped with the same Core i7 CPU. We suspect that differences in ambient temperature or starting conditions may be responsible.

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

Our test unit comes with the same 512 GB Intel SSDPEMKF512G8 NVMe SSD as found on our last XPS 13 9300 test unit. However, we wouldn't be surprised to see Toshiba or SK Hynix drives much like 2what we discovered on the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 or 7390 clamshell. More benchmarks can be found on our table of SSDs and HDDs here.

GPU Performance

The integrated Iris Plus Graphics G7 performs where we expect it to be relative to other laptops with the same GPU. Users upgrading from the less expensive Core i5-1035G1 SKU will see a 60 percent boost in graphics performance while users upgrading from an older UHD Graphics 620 laptop like the XPS 13 7390 will see an even larger performance boost of 80 to 110 percent. Keep in mind that the major difference between the Core i5-1035G1 and Core i7-1065G7 relates to their integrated GPUs rather than their raw CPU horsepower.

See our dedicated page on the Iris Plus Graphics G7 for more technical information and benchmarks.

When running 3DMark 06, fan noise doesn't pick up until about halfway through the initial 90-second benchmark scene. Fan noise only becomes noticeable when running these high loads for long periods. For a high-end Ultrabook with no dedicated GPU, this is nothing out of the ordinary.

We can notice no electronic noise or coil whine from our test unit.

Temperature

Surface temperature development is largely symmetric with hot spots near the center of the keyboard and bottom rear of the chassis. At worst, we're able to record a hot spot of almost 49 C on the keyboard whereas the HP Spectre x360 13 with the same CPU is able to push the hot spot further back and away from the keyboard keys. The front half of the chassis never becomes uncomfortably warm since the battery occupies most of this space.

Stress Test

We stress the laptop with synthetic loads on Ultra Performance mode to identify for any potential throttling or stability issues. When running Prime95, the CPU can be observed boosting to 3.5 GHz for the first few 18 seconds or so before clock rates fall and stabilize at around 2.8 GHz. Core temperature would also stabilize at a very toasty 99 C.

If running both Prime95 and FurMark simultaneously, CPU clock rates would stabilize at 2.2 GHz for the first few minutes before falling and cycling between 0.8 GHz and 1.2 GHz. Core temperature and GPU clock rate would also cycle between 70 C to 75 C and 650 MHz to 900 MHz, respectively.

Running on battery power will limit performance even if on Dell's Ultra Performance mode. A 3DMark 11 test on batteries returns Physics and Graphics scores of 7975 and 3766 points, respectively, compared to 10073 and 4263 points when on mains.

Energy Management

Power Consumption

Idling on desktop consumes between 5 W to 10 W depending on the brightness level and power profile compared to 4 W to 8 W on the FHD configuration. The difference between the minimum and maximum brightness settings is about 2 W.

Things get more interesting when running the first benchmark scene of 3DMark 06. If on the Dell Optimized power profile, average power consumption is only about 36 W because consumption drops after about 30 seconds into the 3DMark test as shown by our screenshots below. If on the Dell Ultra Performance profile, however, consumption remains steady throughout the 90-second benchmark scene for a higher average of 46 W.

If running Prime95, consumption spikes to 48.3 W for only about 18 seconds before falling and stabilizing at 29.4 W. This behavior mimics our Prime95 stress test observations above where clock rates would spike to 3.5 GHz during the start of the test only to fall and stabilize at 2.8 GHz thereafter. Note that the small (6 x 5.5 x 2.2 cm) AC adapter is rated for a maximum output of 45 W only.

Battery Life

When set to Balanced mode at 150 nit brightness, we're able to record a WLAN runtiime of almost 11.5 hours to be about 90 minutes shorter than the FHD configuration. Even so, battery life should be long enough to more than satisfy satisfy most day-to-day and office users.

Recharging from empty to full capacity is slower than usual at just over 2 hours compared to 1.5 hours on most other Ultrabooks. The USB Type-C charger can be used to charge other devices as well including smartphones and tablets.

Verdict

In review: Dell XPS 13 9300 Core i7 4K UHD. Review unit provided by Dell

The Dell XPS 13 9300 is unique in that it's currently one of the only (if not the only) Windows subnotebook clamshell with a 16:10 4K UHD touchscreen. If you're considering the 4K UHD option over the base FHD option, then there are some advantages and disadvantages to keep in mind.

First, the advantages: Aside from the denser resolution and crisper screen, the 4K option offers faster black-white and gray-gray response times than the FHD option for less noticeable ghosting. Pulse-width modulation is completely absent whereas the phenomenon is present on the FHD models. Contrast and color space are essentially identical to the FHD panel as well meaning users won't lose out on either if opting for the higher resolution display.

The main drawback to the 4K option is that it's not as bright as the FHD option. It's not enough to make a difference if working indoors, but every extra nit of brightness will be helpful if you plan on using the laptop outdoors frequently. Battery life is also a bit shorter by one to two hours, but that's merely a dent to the already long runtimes of the XPS 13.

4K offers some unexpected advantages including faster response times and no pulse-width modulation when compared to the FHD version. If you like to work on-the-go, however, then the FHD version may be the better buy simply because it is 50 percent brighter than the 4K option.

Allen Ngo - US Editor in Chief
After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
