Dell XPS 13 9310 Core i7 Laptop Review: The 11th Gen Tiger Lake Difference

Intel Evo(lution). 10th gen Intel Ice Lake introduced significant graphics upgrades over the aging UHD Graphics 620 and the 11th gen Tiger Lake series is yet another huge leap. CPU performance, however, hasn't changed by all that much.

The Dell XPS 13 9300 is barely a year old and its successor is already available. Called the XPS 13 9310, the newer model replaces the 10th gen Intel Ice Lake CPU with 11th gen Tiger Lake options alongside faster memory clock rates. Otherwise, the XPS 13 9310 is visually identical to its immediate predecessor.

For this review, we'll be comparing the performance of the 9310 with the 9300 to see how much of a performance gain users can expect and how temperatures, runtimes, display quality, or power consumption may be different between them — if at all. More information on the chassis and other physical features can be found on our existing XPS 13 9300 review here.

Case

Dell introduced the current 16:10 XPS 13 design earlier this year with the XPS 13 9300 and so the XPS 13 9310 is still relatively new even though there are no major visual updates. Perhaps most notably, the white glass-woven color option of the older 16:9 XPS 13 series has returned whereas the XPS 9300 was available only in black. The main appeal of the white option is mostly aesthetic as unsightly fingerprint buildup won't be as obvious.

Communication

The Intel Killer AX1650s comes standard once again for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. Though we didn't experience any connectivity issues when paired to our Netgear RAX200 router, transmit rates are not nearly as fast as receive rates for a second year in a row.

Display

The 9310 uses the same Sharp LQ134N1 IPS panel as found on the XPS 13 9300 but with slightly different brightness levels and PWM values. Displays on XPS laptops have always been some of the best in their respective categories and this remains true on the 9310. Major drawbacks continue to be the relatively slow response times and lack of both adaptive sync and OLED options. The AMD-powered Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, for example, comes with adaptive sync to reduce screen tearing.

* ... smaller is better

All XPS 13 9300/9310 SKUs top out at 100 percent sRGB coverage with no options for full AdobeRGB or DCI-P3 unlike on the XPS 15 series. This shouldn't be an issue for anyone who's not a professional graphics editor.

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↗ 19.2 ms rise
↘ 14 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. » 87 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
52 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 27.6 ms rise

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. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.6 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 2475 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2475 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2475 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 9596 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance

All XPS 13 9310 SKUs come with either the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7, or Core i7-1165G7 CPU with 8 GB to 32 GB of 4267 MHz RAM. Integrated Iris Xe graphics comes standard on all configurations, but expect it to run slower and with fewer EUs on the Core i3-1115G4 option.

Unless otherwise stated, our tests below were performed on Ultra Performance mode for the highest scores possible from the system. The power profiles can all be found within the pre-installed Dell Power Manager software.

 

Processor

As the fourth laptop in our database equipped with the Core i7-1165G7, the XPS 13 9310 is performing where we expect it to be at within just a few percentage points of the average. Unfortunately, this also means that any raw performance gains over last year's Core i7-1065G7 are relatively minor.

Dell continues to rely on Dynamic Tuning to squeeze as much performance out of the processor as possible within the capabilities of the overlying cooling solution. This is exemplified by the cycling CineBench R15 xT scores when running the benchmark in a loop as shown by the graph below compared to the flatter scores of the Asus ZenBook 14 series running on the same CPU. CineBench R20 scores on the Core i7 XPS 13 9300 can range from 1396 points to 1883 points because of the varying clock rates. We explore this further in the Stress Test section below.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks are consistently higher than last year's Ice Lake-powered XPS 13 9300 by at least double-digit percentage points likely due to the faster integrated GPU. The less expensive AMD-powered Lenovo Yoga Slim 7, however, still comes out on top.

During our time with the test unit, the system randomly rebooted itself one night to update its BIOS. It would then be stuck on the bootup screen for almost 20 minutes before finally entering Windows safe mode. The system was back to normal after restarting from there, but the entire process was definitely an undesirable experience especially on a new flagship laptop.

DPC Latency

Opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage would not result in any DPC latency issues according to LatencyMon. Initiating Prime95, however, would cause slight latencies. 4K60 playback is smooth with only two dropped frames during our minute-long YouTube test video.

Storage Devices

While previous XPS 13 models have shipped with M.2 NVMe SSDs from Samsung, SK Hynix, Intel or Toshiba, our latest unit comes with one from Micron. It's pretty much a roulette as to which SSD you'll be getting when purchasing an XPS 13 at any given time.

Luckily for us, the Micron 2200 is a high-end NVMe drive with sequential read and write rates approaching 3300 MB/s and 2700 MB/s, respectively, to be close to the popular Samsung PM981 series. Still, we wouldn't be surprised if users receive completely different drives if ordering SKUs of different SSD sizes.

More storage benchmarks can be found on our table of SSDs and HDDs here.

GPU Performance

3DMark results are impressive for an integrated GPU with scores that are 30 to 35 percent higher than even the discrete GeForce MX250 or almost 50 percent higher than the Iris Plus G7 in the XPS 13 9300. As we've already proven, however, these synthetic results don't translate well to real-world gaming performance and so users shouldn't expect 30 to 35 percent faster frame rates across the board than a GeForce MX250 laptop. Final Fantasy 15, Strange Brigade, and Witcher 3, for example, run faster on our XPS 13 9310 than on the MX250-powered ZenBook 14 while the opposite is true for DOTA 2 Reborn, X-Plane 11.11, and GTA V.

Note that Dell's Dynamic Tuning has an adverse affect on frame rates. When idling on Witcher 3 at the lowest settings, for example, frame rates would fluctuate between 61 and 80 FPS as shown by our graph below whereas frame rates would be more constant and stable on most other laptops.

See our page on the Intel Iris Xe for more technical information and benchmark comparisons. We expect overall gaming performance to improve over time with driver updates.
