Dell XPS 16 9640 review - The multimedia laptop with 4K OLED and an annoying touch bar

Design over performance. The XPS 16 9640 is Dell's new multimedia flagship, replacing the old XPS 15. Aside from its larger 16-inch display, it also features current Meteor-Lake processors and GeForce graphics cards, but its GPU performance in particular is unfortunately only average.

Dell has replaced its well-known multimedia laptop, the XPS 15, with two new models: Firstly, the more compact XPS 14 which we already tested thoroughly—and its concept revealed quite a few questions for us. Today, we will be taking a look at the larger 16-inch model, namely the XPS 16. In general, its recipe is identical and aside from the new Meteor Lake processors from Intel, it makes use of dedicated graphics cards from Nvidia—but this time also the more powerful models up to the RTX 4070 Laptop. There are some additional differences, all of which we will be discussing in more detail during the course of this review.

Our test device is a well-equipped configuration featuring the Core Ultra 7 155H, the RTX 4070 Laptop, 32 GB RAM, a 1-TB SSD as well as a high-resolution OLED touchscreen for US$2,899. As a result, the XPS 16 competes with other high-quality multimedia laptops and gaming/multimedia hybrids such as the ROG Zephyrus G16.

Case - Stable aluminum case

Dell has used the same basic design for all three variants of the current XPS series, with it taking inspiration from the XPS 13 Plus and its large, continuous glass palm rest and unusual keyboard including a touch bar. The design is attractive and aside from our light version, Dell also offers a dark-gray version of the laptop. Its bezels are slim on all four sides, resulting in a modern appearance. Due to its larger footprint, the XPS 16 doesn't look nearly as bulky as the smaller XPS 14.

Our test device has a small flaw between the USB-C ports.
Our test device has a small flaw between the USB-C ports.

The case is very sturdy and it is generally built very well, however, we noted a small defect between the two USB-C ports on the left-hand side of our test device. The screen is also very stable and the lid only bounces slightly when the opening angle is adjusted (max. 135 degrees). However, due to the shape of the front edge, it is difficult to open the lid with just one hand. 

As already mentioned, the new design of the 16-inch model looks nicer than the XPS 14 and there are no major differences compared to the competition, especially in terms of its footprint and the thickness of its case. Compared to the current Yoga Pro 9 16 2024 (see comparison pictures below), the XPS benefits from slimmer bezels. However, at 2.313 kg, the XPS 16 is still the heaviest device in our comparison group.

Connectivity - The fastest XPS 16 only with 2x Thunderbolt 4

The XPS 16 features the same connectivity options as the smaller XPS 14, with Dell leaving the additional space unused. There are a total of 3x USB-C ports and a card reader—and that's it. To make matters worse, only the two ports on the left-hand side of models featuring the fast RTX 4070 laptop support Thunderbolt 4, while only USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 is supported on the right-hand side. In contrast, all three ports on the slower variants support Thunderbolt 4. Additionally, all USB-C outputs are connected via the iGPU. The scope of delivery also includes a small docking station with a USB-A port and an HDMI output.

SD card reader

The microSD card reader (spring mechanism) is located on the right-hand side of the device and it takes in the compact memory cards almost completely. In conjunction with our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60), its transfer rates reached a maximum of around 204 MB/s and when copying image files, we measured a good 148 MB/s.

Communication

In contrast to the smaller XPS 14, Dell has installed a Wi-Fi-7 module from Intel into the XPS 16. It also supports Bluetooth 5.4. We cannot yet test its Wi-Fi 7 performance, but in combination with our reference router from Asus, its performance was a little worse than, for example, the XPS 14 with its Wi-Fi 6E module. Even so, you shouldn't notice any limitations and during the course of our test, we noted no connection issues whatsoever.

Webcam

Dell has installed a 1080p webcam into the top display frame, plus an IR camera for facial recognition via Windows Hello. The webcam's quality is fine in good lighting conditions. In addition, the camera supports studio effects (background soft focus, eye tracking, auto framing) as part of the operating system, meaning it works irrespective of what application is currently being used.

Maintenance

The bottom case cover is secured via Torx screws (T5) and can be removed easily. The internal build is dominated by the cooling unit and the battery. You can only perform maintenance on the M.2-2280 SSD and clean the laptop's fans—plus, you can swap out the battery if required. All other components, including the WLAN module and RAM, are soldered on.

Input devices - Keyboard takes some getting used to and annoying function keys

As already noted on the XPS 14, Dell also uses the same keyboard design as the old XPS 13 Plus for its larger XPS 16 model, which features no spaces between the individual keys. It doesn't have a numeric keypad—instead, the space next to the keyboard is used for the laptop's speakers. The keys themselves are slightly concave and it feels very comfortable to type on them, as the keystrokes are precise. However, we did note the occasional issue, as we often hit the wrong key by accident, so you definitely need some time to get used to this keyboard. We also found the tiny vertical arrow keys annoying to hit with larger fingers, and the larger keys' keystroke noise is much louder (space bar, enter key). The power button sits on the top right (including a fingerprint scanner) where you would usually expect the delete key to be—this brings us to the next problem.

The function keys are installed as a touch bar which not only doesn't add any additional value to the device for users, but it is also rather annoying. As a result, you can't even hit the delete key blindly and you always have to look at the keys. Its backlighting is just as much of a nuisance, as it switches off during periods of inactivity but not when watching video for hours on end—even if you don't touch a single key. Furthermore, when the backlighting is deactivated, you don't know where to press, meaning you might hit the wrong keys until the lighting is reactivated. The white backlighting itself is adapted constantly via a sensor and you can't influence the intensity at all—or at least we couldn't find the option to. The sensor also isn't interested in whether you previously deactivated the backlighting manually and as soon as the lighting conditions change, it is reactivated.

The infrared image shows the dimensions of the touchpad.

The touchpad is fully integrated into the palm rest and there are no visible boundaries. The touchpad uses the full height of the palm rest and its width extends from the centre of the left Fn key to the centre of the left arrow key. In general, it works well and it is nice and smooth with an even click, but we occasionally encountered some problems if you left the area or started movements slightly off the actual touchpad area. In contrast to the touch bar, however, this is only a minor point of criticism. The optional OLED panel is also equipped with a capacitive touchscreen and this works perfectly.

Display - 90-Hz 4K OLED

Sub-pixel array
Sub-pixel array

Dell offers two different 16.3-inch panels with a reflective surface for its new XPS 16. A 1080p model (500 cd/m²) without a touchscreen is installed as standard, but for an additional US$300, you can get an OLED touchscreen from Samsung with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,400 pixels, which is also the one that's installed in our test device. Despite its good subjective picture quality, the panel in the XPS 16 shows some disadvantages compared to the latest OLED generation from Samsung (which is installed in the Galaxy Book4 Ultra, for example), despite its higher resolution. First of all, its refresh rate is only 90 Hz instead of 120 Hz and a raster effect can be seen on closer inspection when bright content is displayed. The Dell XPS 16 also falls slightly behind when it comes to its maximum SDR brightness with an average of ~367 cd/m². Its black value is 0, which leads to an extremely high contrast ratio. We noted a maximum of 580 cd/m² in HDR mode (which has to be activated manually). We were able to detect PWM with a frequency of 360 Hz across all brightness levels from 0-90%.

We analyzed the panel using the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2). Dell offers different color profiles and the pre-selected profile Vivid already delivers very accurate colors—only gray tones still show some slight deviations. Using our own calibration (you can download the corresponding profile for free above), we were able to improve depiction even further. If you like to edit photos, then you'll enjoy the accurate profile Internet, which limits the color space to sRGB.

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
0.85 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.46 ms rise
↘ 0.39 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.82 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.43 ms rise
↘ 0.39 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 360 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 360 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 360 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The touchscreen is very reflective and reflections may also be an issue indoors. Outdoors, you will also have to try to avoid reflections from light sources or bright surfaces. It is possible to use the laptop on cloudy days, but it can get problematic on bright days with lots of sunlight. Its viewing-angle stability is generally very good, but if there are large deviations from the centre of the screen, the typical OLED blue shimmer can be seen.

Performance - The XPS 16 with Advanced Optimus and up to 64 GB RAM

As with the smaller XPS 14, the new XPS 16 can be configured without a dedicated graphics card—but only in conjunction with 16 GB of RAM (LPDDR5x-6400). 32 GB RAM is only available in conjunction with dedicated GPUs, and faster LPDDR5x-7467 RAM can only be selected in conjunction with the RTX 4070 Laptop. If you want 64 GB of RAM, you'll also have to choose the Core Ultra 9 185H and at least the RTX 4060 Laptop. The XPS 16 is equipped with a MUX switch and Advanced Optimus graphics switching.

 
 
 

Testing conditions

Dell lets users select various energy profiles that can also be combined with the Windows performance settings. The default profile is Optimized, but the graphics card's full performance is only available using Ultra Performance mode. Since the fan noise emissions are very similar using these two profiles, we selected the Ultra Performance mode for our benchmarks and measurements.

Energy profile CPU load CB R23 Multi GPU load Time Spy graphics Cyberpunk 2077
QHD Ultra
max. fan noise emissions
Quiet 80 -> 75 watts 18,296 points 50 watts 8,186 points 30.8fps 43.3 dB(A)
Optimized 80 -> 75 watts 18,248 points 50 watts 8,532 points 37.4fps 48.1 dB(A)
Ultra Performance 100 -> 85 watts 18,518 points 60 watts 9,638 points 39.6fps 49.7 dB(A)

During our test, we came across a bug during the graphics switching process, as V-Sync was always active in full-screen mode. In windowed mode and when manually selecting the Nvidia GPU in the graphics driver, the problem did not occur. When connecting an external monitor, normal Optimus switching is active (as all Thunderbolt ports run via the Intel GPU) and the problem can also be found here.

Processor - Core Ultra 7 155H

The Core Ultra 7 155H is part of Intel's current Meteor Lake generation, replacing the old Core i7-13700H. It has 16 cores (22 threads) and achieves a maximum core clock rate of 4.8 GHz. In addition, its overall multi-core performance is great, too, thanks to its high power limits (100/85 watts). However, there is practically no performance advantage over the old Raptor Lake chips and the differences between the individual devices come as a result of different power limits. When it comes to single-core performance, on the other hand, the new Meteor Lake chips have a slight disadvantage over the old Raptor Lake models such as the 13700H. In battery use, the processor is allowed to consume 75/45 watts (whereby the 75 watts can be held for quite a while) and its multi-core performance only drops by around 4 %. In turn, the differences are larger under longer periods of load. Further CPU benchmarks can be found in our tech section.
