Aside from that many features that are really good news, there is another great report about this laptop. Ars Technica is now offering Dell Inspiron 15 5000 laptop with Kaby Lake CPU for just $469. Special thanks to TechBargains, there is a new batch of deals to share.
Gaming And Graphics
We all know that Dell 15 5000 is equipped with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU together with 4GB of video memory. Apart from that fact, the Inspiron 15 won't give the face-melting frame rates its better-specced brethren can. However, this laptop can still put on a great show given the user is keeping the settings to medium level.
During the budget version of LaptopMag's Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 hit 43 fps versus the VX 15 with GTX 1050 GPU. It also tops the 40-fps average compared to all the competitors. The Asus Strix and its GTX 1050 GPU was slightly behind with only 38 fps.
Running the regular Tomb Raider test with high range display at 1080p, the Dell Inspiron 15 managed to tough it out. In fact, it scores 36 fps beating the other laptops with just 18 fps, 16 fps and the mainstream average of 34 fps. Aside from that, the Dell 15 5000 also scores high with 25 fps on Metro: Last Light test, which was better compared to VX 15 with 14 fps and Strix with 13 fps.
Despite all the good results and scores, the laptop device is still below the score of 30 fps playability threshold. In fact, the Inspiron 15 7000 gained 29 fps noting that the average is 34 fps. When a gamer isn't exploring for long forgotten tombs, the Dell Inspiron 15 5000's integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 GPU takes over for video or any lighter activities.
