Reviews for the Dell XPS 15 9530 RTX 4070

90.3% Dell XPS 15 9530 RTX 4070 laptop review: Both impressive and underwhelming | Notebookcheck
Whereas the 2022 XPS 15 topped out at GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics, this year's model has upped the ante to a GeForce RTX 4070. As impressive as that may sound on paper, there are significant compromises that users ought to be aware of before pulling the trigger on the latest 2023 model.
80% Dell XPS 15 (2023) review: a well-rounded Ultrabook that pales to its predecessor
Source: Techradar English
The Dell XPS 15 (2023) had a lot to live up to compared to its perfect-rated 2022 version, and for the most part, it succeeds quite well. But some issues here and there add up to an Ultrabook that ensures it doesn’t hold up quite the same as the older model.

90% Dell XPS 15 OLED (2023) review: Best in class gets better
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Dell XPS 15 OLED (2023) isn’t a monumental update over its predecessor. If you own the previous model, you can safely skip this year’s offering. With that said, this is still a phenomenal Windows laptop with a vivid OLED display, an amazing keyboard and speedy performance for both work and play. If you want a Windows laptop that’s great for working, gaming and some light video editing, you can’t go wrong with this notebook. If the XPS 15 OLED isn’t to your liking or you’d prefer an Apple laptop, the MacBook Pro 16-inch or MacBook Pro 14-inch make for awesome alternatives. For a lighter Windows laptop offering comparable performance, the Samsung Galaxy Book 3 Ultra is a good choice. Though it’s a nominal update, the Dell XPS 15 OLED (2023) is another great example of what makes the XPS 15 lineup Dell’s answer to Apple’s MacBooks. Iterative or not, this is a brilliant laptop.

83% Test: Min jagt på den perfekte arbejdsbærbar endte med denne pc - Dells forførende XPS 15
Source: Computerworld.com English
Dell XPS 15 er lidt af en veteran i feltet af det, der nu ofte kaldes for ’creator’-maskiner. Altså fine, pæne, men også potente bærbare maskiner, som kan excellere ved alt fra café-bordet, forbi arkitekt-studiet og til bestyrelsesmødet. XPS 15 er bare den mindste, som du kan få, som tilbyder ydelsen og looket sammen med en skærm i fuld størrelse – og så er driftstiden slet ikke så ringe for så ambitiøs en maskine. Der er dog plads til forbedring enkelte steder, maskinens blæsere kunne godt køle bedre, mens skærmen vil have gavn af hurtigere frekvenser. Men begge dele er dog reelt svagheder, som først rigtig bemærkes, når der spilles. Skal XPS 15 alene fungere som en arbejdshest, er det svært at finde bedre tilbud derude. Det var i hvert fald det bedste tilbud for mit vedkommende.

[REVIEW] Dell XPS 15 9530 - How can it fit an RTX 4070?

I traded my MacBook for a Dell XPS 15 for a month, and didn't regret it at all
Source: Zdnet.com English
If I were to buy the Dell XPS 15, I'd be comfortable with a less-powerful RTX 4050 and a smaller storage size of 512GB, since most of my work is saved on the cloud. With the 3.5K resolution display add-on, that rings me up at around $2,049, a relatively fair price for one of the more premium Windows laptops out there. You'll save an additional $300 if you can live with the FHD+ (1920 x 1200) non-touch display. And if looks are all you really care about, the Dell XPS 15 can be had for as little as $1,299. No matter the price, you can expect reliable performance and battery life, and a design that's as timeless as they come.

Dell XPS 15 9530 Review: A Beautiful, Power-Efficient Laptop
Source: Hot Hardware English
The Dell XPS 15 9530 is a sleek, slim laptop that packs a punch despite its weight. To get much better performance than this, buyers need to consider bulkier gaming notebooks with bigger thermal solutions, higher power requirements, and heftier weights. Especially on the CPU side, the latest XPS 15 and its Intel 13th Gen Core i7 processor had plenty of get up and go for the vast majority of users. While gaming performance might have been disappointing compared to the biggest and baddest gaming laptops around, we found it to be more than satisfying for this class of machine, and with upscaling technology like DLSS 3.0 or even AMD's FSR being able to sharpen up lower-resolution images to look good, the XPS 15's 3.5K OLED display won't go to waste. Next up let's talk pricing.

90% Dell XPS 15 (9530) (2023) Review
Source: PC Mag English
The 2023 Dell XPS 15 is more or less exactly what you'd expect from the company flagship. Its fresh components deliver measurably superior power and longevity, while the machine's premium build and design remain intact. It may not be overly exciting, but XPS loyalists and upgraders should be more than happy. As far as drawbacks, our review unit is quite pricey, and the GeForce RTX 4070 GPU can't reach the potential here that it can in higher-wattage laptops. Still, the model 9530 has a reasonable starting price and lesser GPU upgrades are affordable. While it's far from a reinvention—and it's well past time to get at least a 1080p webcam in there—the XPS 15 easily repeats its Editors' Choice win as a top-notch desktop replacement.

90% Dell XPS 15 (2023) review: A real do-it-all powerhouse
Source: PC World English
Dell’s new XPS 15 is much like the old XPS 15, but faster. Much faster. The one-two punch of new Intel 13th-gen processors and Nvidia RTX 40-series graphics provides real-world upgrades over the prior model. The old XPS 15 was a respectable workhorse but not always an impressive performer, especially in 3D games. The new model is perfectly capable of handling even the most demanding modern titles at 60 FPS—when packing the RTX 4070, at least. There is still room for improvement. The touchpad can be overly sensitive and the webcam could use an upgrade. Still, these problems don’t detract from the XPS 15’s slim design, high build quality, and strong performance, and it remains a go-to pick for those craving a premium laptop with a balance of portability with speed.

80% Dell XPS 15 (9530) review: Best in class power for creators and more
Source: Laptop Mag English
Edit photos and videos? Check. Run a bunch of spreadsheets and multitasking tasks? Check. Run games at a reasonable frame rate? Check. The Dell XPS 15 can do all that and then some. Dell has created a serious powerhouse of a system with a 13th Gen Intel processor and an Nvidia RTX 4070 GPU and doesn’t skimp on the multimedia with a vivid 3.5K OLED touch display and a banging 4-speaker setup. And while Dell is targeting creative professionals, the XPS 15 can make just about any PC fan happy. However, for $2,799, I wish the brightness was better and the battery life was longer. Now if you’re a Mac fan, you should definitely look into the MacBook 16, but bear in mind the system I reviewed costs an eye-watering $5,299. Overall, the Dell XPS 15 is a jack-of-all-trades laptop that does pretty darn well at everything.

81% Dell XPS 15 2023 Review: A Creator's Laptop With Stealth Gaming Chops
Source: CNet English
The only catch is that this is a lower-power 40-watt version of the 4070 GPU, while the larger XPS 17 has access to the more powerful 60-watt version. For FHD gaming, however, it should make a big difference. Also keep in mind that if you're primarily using this for creative work, you'll want to download the latest Studio drivers from Nvidia (which come pre-installed), rather than the usual gaming drivers. I love being able to play games at serious detail settings on a conservative-looking laptop, and to be able to get away with just a simple USB-C charger. It's about 4.25 pounds, so it's not a laptop you'll want to carry around every day in a shoulder bag. For a bigger screen at a light weight, look at something like LG's excellent Gram line. With its big, high-res OLED screen and powerful components, I see the XPS 15 as a good Windows-based alternative to a MacBook Pro, or as a semi-desktop-replacement system for your home office.

80% Dell XPS 15 (2023) review: a well-rounded Ultrabook that pales to its predecessor
Source: Techradar English
The Dell XPS 15 (2023) laptop is a refresh of the phenomenal version from 2022, which scored a perfect five out of five stars from us. But while the 2023 model has mostly stayed the same in terms of design and offerings, there are some key differences between the two, both good and bad. From the outside, you see the same light silver chassis that sets it apart from many of the other best Ultrabooks. Though it feels comparable to the best light and thin laptops in terms of weight, the chassis still has a nice, hefty feeling to it. It’s also the exact same chassis from the previous model, which was also a work of art. It only makes sense not to alter a design that served it so well. Just as with any Dell laptop, there are a wide variety of configurations and specs to choose from, depending on what your needs are.

2023 Dell XPS 15 Review (9530)
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The 2023 Dell XPS 15 (9530) has significant internal upgrades this year with NVIDIA RTX 4050/4060/4070 dedicated graphics and Intel 13th gen H series 45 watt CPUs. There are two 16:10 display options, including the lovely 3.5K OLED panel, a relatively compact USB-C charger, Windows Hello facial and fingerprint recognition and upgradable internals. As ever, this is a multimedia and mobile workstation laptop that can handle some gaming too.

70% Dell XPS 15 (9530) review: a great laptop starts to falter
Source: Digital Trends English
As I’ve mentioned throughout this review, there’s much to like about the XPS 15 (9530)’s design. It’s still sleek and modern enough that newer 15-inch laptops don’t eclipse it, but even so, it’s starting to feel a little dated. Certainly, you can’t fault the build quality. But the CPU upgrade was underwhelming, providing minimal performance improvement — unlike the XPS 15 (9520), which was a big jump over its previous generation. It’s only the addition of the RTX 4070 option that gives the XPS 15 (9530) a meaningful boost in performance, and even there, it’s less than it might be due to the GPU running close to its minimal power specification. Toss in an old-school 720p webcam and Wi-Fi 6, and this year’s XPS 15 lacks some of the cutting-edge feel it once had.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
