We had an opportunity to play around with the new Dell Inspiron 7000 2-in-1 notebooks at IFA 2018 and were glad to see that the 15 and 17-inch versions sport the '1D10' version of the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU. The '1D10' version of the MX150 can operate in a 25W TDP envelope, which should allow better performance in games and demanding applications.

Dell had a great outing at IFA 2018 and the company announced refreshes across almost its entire product lineup. Notable among them was the refreshed Inspiron 2-in-1 series with new Intel 'Whiskey Lake-U' CPUs and NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics. It was the MX150 part that caught our attention.

We've reported sometime back about NVIDIA offering two variants of the MX150 — a '1D10' version rated at 25W TDP and a slower 10W TDP '1D12' variant. NVIDIA never advertised about the 1D12 variant — which we'll refer to as the 'MX150 Max-Q' — so customers thought that all MX150s are made equal. In our tests, however, we found that there is a 20-25% performance gap between the two MX150 variants. 

Luckily, those opting for the new Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 devices need not have to worry much about GPU performance. We took the new Inspirons for a spin at Dell's booth at IFA 2018 and we could see that both the Inspiron 2-in-1 15-inch and 17-inch incorporate the 1D10 version of the MX150 GPU. This is also reiterated by the GPU clocks revealed by GPU-Z, which showed a base clock of 1469 MHz and a boost clock of 1532 MHz. The 1D12 variant, on the other hand, would have showed GPU clocks between 936-1037 MHz — a close to 32% speed deficit.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
