Nvidia RTX A5500 debut: Dell Precision 7670 Performance workstation review

Core i9-12950HX power. The "Performance" or "Ultimate" version is of the Precision 7670 is slightly thicker, but it offers a significantly faster GPU than its thinner alternative. CPU Turbo Boost, however, could be a bit better.

Dell is taking a lot of risks with its new Precision 7670 series. Not only is it the first production laptop to utilize CAMM, but the series itself consists of a thinner model and a more powerful thicker model (called the "Performance" or "Ultimate" model) depending on the configuration. We reviewed the thinner model last month and so now we'll take a look at the thicker model.

Other than their slight differences in Z height, the two models share exactly the same chassis design and features. We recommend checking out our existing review on the thinner Precision 7670 to learn more about the physical features of the series.

Our specific review unit is the highest-end configuration with the Core i9-12950HX CPU, RTX A5500 GPU, and 2400p 16:10 OLED touchscreen for approximately $7000 USD. Lesser SKUs go down to the Core i7-12850HX or RTX A4500, but all options come with the same 2400p IPS touchscreen. In contrast, the thinner Precision 7670 can only go up to the RTX A2000 GPU.

Competitors in this space include other 16-inch mobile workstations like the MSI CreatorPro Z16PHP ZBook Studio 16, or Lenovo ThinkPad P1 G4.

Case

Length and width are identical to the regular slimmer Precision 7670 while thickness and weight have been bumped up by about 1.3 mm and 100 g, respectively. It's difficult to notice the differences in practice as the regular Precision 7670 is already one of the thicker and heavier mobile workstations.

Communication

Though the Intel AX211 is present on all Precision 7670 SKUs, performance is slower than expected on our specific test unit. Average transmit rates is only 891 Mbps when paired to our 6 Ghz network compared to almost twice that on the MSI CreatorPro Z16P or HP ZBook Firefly 16 G9 each with the same AX211 module. We repeated this test six times on two different days just to make sure, but results would not improve.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by six Philips screws for easy servicing. The internals are similar to the slimmer Precision 7670 save for the differences in battery capacity, number of available storage bays, and presence of a small heat sink.

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
1.92 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.92 ms rise
↘ 1 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
1.84 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.92 ms rise

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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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 59.52 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 59.52 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 59.52 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

 
 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Ultra Performance mode via the Dell Optimizer software and the GPU to discrete graphics prior to running any performance benchmarks below. It's highly recommended that owners become familiar with Optimizer as it is the hub for controlling many specific features of the laptop including Presence Detection and charging behavior.

We can find no MUX switch anywhere in the software or BIOS.

Processor

Multi-thread performance is only about 8 to 14 percent faster than the Core i7-12850HX in our slimmer Precision 7670. The narrow margin is not unexpected, but the more surprising aspect is the somewhat poor Turbo Boost sustainability of our Core i9-12950HX. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, performance would fall by about 17 percent over time instead of remaining steady throughout. The performance deficit is similar to what we observed on the regular Precision 7670 despite the thicker profile of our Performance model.

Storage Devices

Users can install up to three PCIe4 x4 NVMe M.2 2280 SSDs instead of just two on the slimmer regular model. The two SK Hynix PC801 drives in our unit are installed in RAID 0 configuration for insanely high real-world sequential read and write rates of about 13000 MB/s and 10000 MB/s, respectively. Each SSD slot comes with their own heat spreader and thermal pad for heat dissipation.

Dell Precision 7000 7670 Performance: Ø4562 (3855.24-4790.1)

GPU Performance

The RTX A5500 is roughly 60 to 80 percent faster than the RTX A2000 in the slimmer Precision 7670 to be one of the fastest mobile workstations currently in the market. It's not all that much better than the two-year old Quadro RTX 5000 in the Acer ConceptD 9 Pro or Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro X, however, even in terms of ray-tracing performance. The RTX A5000 in the larger 17.3-inch MSI WE76 outperforms our RTX A5500 in most benchmarks.
