Dell has just released the new Dell G16 gaming laptop, which replaces the Dell G15. Announced alongside Alienware’s new 480Hz beast, the new G16 is more modest but no less interesting. In fact, it makes major changes compared to its predecessor to offer a new screen format as well as more than satisfactory performance. Then everything will be done at a fairly discreet price.
In terms of new features, the Dell G16 stands out above all for its screen. Indeed, this is the first gaming laptop with a 16:10 screen format. This allows the US manufacturer to integrate a larger 16-inch bezel into a smaller bezel designed for a 15-inch screen.
The display itself consists of a 16-inch LCD panel with a QHD+ resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. It also benefits from a 165Hz refresh rate and 300nit brightness.
Under the hood of the Dell G16 lies a rather beefy configuration. We are entitled to 12th generation Intel Core processor, and specifically the Core i7-2700H clocked at 4.7GHz. This is supported by 16GB of DDR5 RAM and a 512GB or 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.
The graphics part also offers a choice between two different graphics cards. Then you can take the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR6 memory or the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 with 6GB of GDDR6 memory.
Other Dell G16 Features
Connectivity options offered on the Dell G16 include 3 USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, HDMI 2.1 output, an RJ45 Ethernet port, and a mini-jack combo jack. You can also find a Thunderbolt 4 port, but only on versions with an RTX 3060 graphics card. Those with an RTX 3050 Ti will be satisfied with a simple USB-C port with DisplayPort. Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
For the multimedia part, we rely on a pair of stereo speakers with a power of 2.5 watts. There is also an HD webcam with microphone support.
Power is provided by a 3-cell 56Wh battery with a 180W adapter for the RTX 3050 Ti version. The one with the RTX 3060 uses a 6-cell 86Wh battery with a 240W charger. Everything runs on Windows 11 Home or Pro.
