Gaming laptops have been synonymous with super high end specifications, high prices and edgy design. However, not everyone has the cash to dole out when it comes to super high end gaming laptops. While Alienware and it’s new Legend Industrial Design may be appealing, it may not be in the budget when it comes to the regular Joe. Recognising this, Dell introduced its gaming line up to help fill the gap. The Dell G laptops offer gaming performance with a more subtle design and an affordable price point.
Enhanced Software & Better Control for Better Gaming Experience
The new Dell G3 15 introduced at Computex 2019 is one of Dell’s latest and greatest when it comes to their offerings for affordable gaming. The new laptop setup comes enhanced with software features that give a better and more immersive experience when using the Dell G3 15.
Foremost among the software features is the inclusion of the Alienware Command Center. What was once exclusive only to Alienware is now making its mark in Dell Gaming. The Alienware Command Center allows more nuanced control of your laptop’s RGB lighting. It also allows you control of your laptop’s fans and cooling to give you that extra edge. That said, it also keeps track of your game library and allows you to arrange it to your preference.
The Dell G3 15 comes with RGB lighting for its WASD keys and also has a special G Key. The G
spot Key turns the fans and cooling of the G3 15 into overdrive to allow it to accommodate higher performance when triggered.
Gaming Optimised Specifications
The new G3 15 comes with gaming optimised performance hardware with components such as NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics and 9th generation Intel Core i processors. More specifically, the Dell G3 comes with up to Core i7 processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 16-series graphics. These are paired with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 2TB of internal storage with options for single or dual storage with HDD and M.2 SSD storage.
On the display front, the Dell G3 comes with Full HD 1080p resolution LED panels with either 60Hz or 144Hz refresh rate. It also has Nahimic 3D gaming audio to help immerse you in the games that you’re playing and deliver high quality audio.
G3 is just the beginning
The Dell Gaming series isn’t just about the G3. Dell was also showing off their Dell G7 series which comes with higher specifications and more power. The G7 comes with up to NVIDIA RTX2080 Max-Q graphics and 8th Generation Intel Core i9 processor.
Both the G3 and the G7 gaming laptops come with new slim form factors and a more subtle design to blend in with work and play.
