For the gaming segment, or gaming, Dell has two laptop product lines, namely the Alienware series and the G series. If the Alienware series targets the more serious game player segment, the G series is aimed at casual gamers who have a more limited budget. One of the newest series from the G series that Dell launched for the market is the G15 Ryzen Edition.
From the name itself, it is clear that the processor it uses is AMD Ryzen. And the unit we tested used one of the fast Ryzen 5000 series, the Ryzen 7 5800H. As a tandem, the Dell G15 Ryzen Edition uses 16 GB of main memory with dual channel mode and a 512 GB M.2 SSD storage media with a PCI Express 3.0 x4 interface and NVMe.
As a relatively affordable gaming laptop, the Dell G15 Ryzen Edition uses an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU with 4 GB of local memory. This additional graphics card is indeed a solution for those who want to play games, but have limited funds. Moreover, the RTX 3050 Ti has more CUDA cores than the non-Ti RTX 3050.
Even though it's not as sharp as Alienware, the feel of playing games is still felt in the design of the Dell G15 Ryzen Edition. The body is fairly large with a more prominent rear side. This rear body makes the screen hinge position slightly forward so that the screen can be opened steadily using only one hand. The position of the screen can be opened with a tilt of up to about 135° only.
Behind the body there are also connections consisting of a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Standard-A port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and an adapter port. On the right side there are two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Standard-A ports, while on the left side there is an Ethernet port and one audio port (combo). Between the two sides there is an air hole to dissipate hot air. The Ethernet port itself is now rarely included directly on the laptop.
In the screen sector, Dell provides a pretty good specification. The panel used is IPS which displays a better viewing angle than the TN panel. With a size of 15.6 inches, the resolution is Full HD or 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
For convenience when playing games, especially the FPS (first person shooter) type which has fast movement, the screen has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Meanwhile, in terms of design, the screen has thin bezels on the left and right, but not on the top. In fact, we think the top side is still quite thick when compared to "modern" laptops. However, the thick bezel makes Dell able to place a webcam with a rather large size.
The nuances of playing games are also seen in the RGB backlight per zone that is present on the keyboard. The buttons have full dimensions, including the numpad area. What's interesting is that there is a button that is useful for increasing system settings automatically. This key is placed together with the F9 key. The G logo on the button emphasizes an additional feature called Game Shift. By pressing the button, the system will immediately activate the Performance mode in the Alienware Command Center application. This mode is suitable for use when playing AAA games.
When the inside is opened, we think that the cooling system only uses two fans without heatpipes. It turned out that we were wrong, it was due to the position of the mainboard facing down so that the installed heatpipes were not visible. Luckily, upgrade options are still available fairly easily. The mainboard has two slots, both of which are already filled with memory, so dual channel mode is active.
