Dell XPS 13 9300 Core i7 Laptop Review: New Chassis Design is More Exciting than the New CPU

Once you go 16:10, you can't go back. Apple has been championing the 16:10 display for years across its MacBook family. It's about time for a Windows maker to offer the same larger aspect ratio that both home and office users can appreciate.

Dell launched the first Ice Lake laptop in 2019 with its XPS 13 7390 2-in-1. In the meantime, the clamshell XPS 13 7390 would go on to receive Comet Lake-U options to complement the new XPS 13 convertible. It wouldn't be until now that Dell would offer the same Ice Lake CPU options for its XPS 13 clamshell lineup as found on last year's XPS 13 convertible lineup.

The latest XPS 13 9300 clamshell succeeds last year's XPS 13 7390 by introducing a refreshed chassis design that's even smaller than before while increasing the sizes of both the screen and clickpad. More details on the chassis and its features can be found on our existing XPS 13 9300 Core i5 review page here. Our test unit today is the XPS 13 9300 Core i7 version to see what kinds of benefits or drawbacks there may be between it and the lesser Core i5 SKU.

Communication

WLAN is provided by the Intel Killer 1650x which is essentially identical to the Intel AX200/201 but with additional Killer-specific software features. It's a bit overkill for an XPS system as Killer caters more towards advanced users like gamers on the Dell G series or Alienware series. We're able to record average transfer rates of 800 Mbps to 1400 Mbps when standing one meter away from our Wi-Fi 6-enabled Netgear RAX200 router. Transmit speeds could have been more stable as it dipped to as low as 232 Mbps even after a retest.

Display

Dell advertises a brightness of 500 nits for its XPS 13 9300 FHD SKUs. Interestingly, we're able to measure a maximum brightness of 600 nits on two different FHD SKUs to be brighter than what Dell is advertising. We've discovered that the display will automatically dim to a maximum of 500 nits only when disconnected from the outlet and running on battery power.

Fortunately, it's possible to get the full 600 nits when running on battery power with a few clicks as detailed here. Users will have to disable adaptive brightness via Windows, then disable adaptive brightness again via the Intel Graphics Control Center software, enable Display Power Savings, and then disable Enhanced Power Saving in that order. It's a convoluted process involving multiple boxes when it should have been just one or two clicks at most.

It's worth noting that the XPS 13 9300 uses the exact same 13.4-inch 16:10 Sharp LQ134N1 IPS panel as found on the XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 and so both systems share very similar characteristics. Even their pulse-width modulation frequencies are the same at 2500 Hz to suggest that they may share other similar components.

Eyesafe technology is included by default to reduce blue light emissions without impacting the color profile or accuracy of the display. Even so, our CalMAN measurements below show that the display could be even better calibrated than its default out-of-the-box settings.

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
33.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 17.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 86 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
50 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 28 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 82 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39 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 17878 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Currently, the XPS 13 9300 comes with either the Core i5-1035G1 or Core i7-1065G7 with no Core i3 or Comet Lake-U options. There are no discrete GPU options either meaning that users will be choosing between the integrated UHD Graphics G1 or the Iris Plus G7. RAM ranges from 8 GB to 16 GB of soldered 3733 MHz LPDDR4x.

Our unit exhibits DPC latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs, running a 4K60 YouTube video, and running Prime95 in sequence.

Processor

To ensure we are getting the fastest performance possible from our test unit, we had set the system to Ultra Performance via the pre-installed Dell Power Manager software before running any of the tests described below. CineBench results are approximately 9 to 17 percent faster than the average Core i7-1065G7 in our database taken from at least 13 other laptops. However, this doesn't tell the whole story as Ultrabooks tend to throttle performance over time when under continuous stress. To simulate this, we would run CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop as shown by the graph below. The initial score of 811 points would drop over time to about 610 points on average to represent a 25 percent performance dip. Interestingly, the scores would fluctuate between ~560 points and ~660 points to imply cycling CPU clock rates when under such extreme processing conditions.

Overall CPU performance is generally better than the last generation Core i7-8565U especially when the processor is cool due to its faster Turbo Boost speeds. Its advantages begin to dwindle once the CPU reaches a certain temperature range where clock rates start cycling.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-1065G7 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons. The hexa-core Core i7-10710U offers faster multi-thread performance but it is only available on the XPS 13 7390 for now.

Storage Devices

Unlike our first XPS 13 9300 Core i5 SKU and its 512 GB Toshiba SSD, the XPS 13 9300 Core i7 SKU comes with a 512 GB Intel SSD instead. Sequential read and write rates are similar between them according to both CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD, but the Toshiba SSD appears to be much faster when addressing higher queue depths.

See our table of SSDs and HDDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

Performance in games is significantly better than the outdated UHD Graphics 620 but still disappointing overall when compared to the competing RX Vega 8 or Vega 10 series. Synthetic benchmarks like 3DMark suggest that the Iris Plus G7 is on par with the RX Vega 10, but real-world gaming benchmarks still show the AMD solution outperforming the newer Intel solution in certain games.

Perhaps more notably, the GPU performance jump between the XPS 13 Core i5-1035G1 and Core i7-1065G7 SKUs is quite significant at about 70 percent meaning that users may want to consider the Core i7 SKU if they intend to make the most of Intel Ice Lake.

See our dedicated page on the Iris Plus G7 for more benchmark comparisons.

Idling on Witcher 3 for over an hour shows the inability of the system to maintain consistent frame rates. As shown by the graph below, frame rates would be stable at about 50 FPS during the first 15 minutes or so before they begin cycling between 40 and 60 FPS. In contrast, most other laptops would run at more stable frame rates from beginning to end. The cycling GPU clock rate that we will detail in the Stress Test section below is the likely culprit to this undesirable behavior when running games.
