Dell’s new gaming oriented G series laptops launched with 8th gen processors

Dell G Series gaming

Dell is on a roll thanks to Intel’s roadmap of processor refreshes. They have already refreshed the XPS 15 with new 8th gen processors and better GPU. With that out of the way, the Alienware and Inspiron Gaming series are also getting an overhaul. With performance boost claims of up to 50%, let’s take a look at all of what Dell has to offer.

The new G series will replace the previous Inspiron gaming series, featuring three new laptops, the G3, G5 and G7. These new laptops will fit almost all laptop buyers in almost every price range. All three laptops come with either a GTX 1050 4GB, GTX 1050Ti 4GB or a Max Q GTX 1060 6GB . They also come equipped with a 56Whr battery and up to a maximum of 32GB RAM at 2666MHz.

Dell’s G3 comes in 15 and 17-inch variants with both of them featuring a FHD (1920×1080) IPS matte panel. You can choose from Intel’s i5-8300H with 4 core and go up to an i7-8750H with 6 cores. Although the G3 only features a 1×1 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 5.0 and an optional Thunderbolt 3 port.

Dimension wise, the laptop will see itself in a 0.89 x 14.96 x 10.16-inch body. Availability starts from 3rd April and will be priced at $749 for the 15 inch and $799 for the 17-inch variant. You might ask yourself why the low prices? Well according to the Verge, that is all thanks to a cheap plastic build and even worst keyboards and touchpads.

The G5 (15″) also comes with either a 4 core i5-8300H or a 6 core i7-8750H. The noticeable improvements over the G3 is an optional 15″ 4K UHD matte IPS display. The G5 also gets a 2×2 802.11ac wifi. Dimension wise, it has a 0.98 x 15.32 x 10.82-inch body, with a weight of around 2.65kg. The laptop will also be available starting April 3, with a base price of $799.Dell G series gaming

Finally, the G7 (15″) is the best among the bunch. This one not only comes in a 4 core i5-8300H or a 6 core i7-8750H options but also with a 6 core i9-8950HK processor with clock speeds that go all the way up to 4.8Ghz. Sadly, the GPU options remain the same.

The G7 is available in both FHD and UHD resolution matte IPS panels. Dell has managed to cram all this into a 0.98 x 15.32 x 10.82-inch body. The laptop will be available starting April 3 for a starting price of $849.

Storage options for all three models include an M.2 SSD from 128GB to 512GB and a 2.5-inch HDD from 500GB to 1TB. Likewise, the port selection includes HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1, Thunderbolt 3 (optional on G3), SD card reader, RJ45 LAN and a headphone/mic combo port.Dell G series
