There are 2,073,600 pixels in 1920x1080.You do realize 2048x1152 is a 2K resolution at 16:9.
WQHD 2560x1440 is 2.5K, not 2K.
its got great specs until you get to the 2gb of gddr5 ram on the gt 960m, which ends up being the bottleneck of the entire system when it comes to the gaming aspect of it. and that's a shame to as 4gb oh gddr5 would have been greatly needed which is this laptops achilles heel in an other wise solid gaming laptop for the price.
That's only on full spec'd model on the Dell website. The $1799 config with 4k screen and 512GB SSD. The lower ones show they have the 56Whr battery and not the 84Whr. I would prefer to have the 84Whr battery but not at $1800..."Dell employs a PCIe-based 512GB M.2 SSD for storage. The system should have space for a 2.5-inch HDD/SSD too, as other models of the XPS 15 include an HDD."
No, no it doesn't. The specs, initial reviews, Dell's website, and other reviews all point out that if you opt for the PCIe SSD, they use the extra space that would otherwise be allocated for a traditional 2.5" drive, and fill it with extra battery instead.
You are completely correct! But my post was about how the statement within the article was incorrect regarding not having a 2k resolution available.There are 2,073,600 pixels in 1920x1080.You do realize 2048x1152 is a 2K resolution at 16:9.
WQHD 2560x1440 is 2.5K, not 2K.
There are 2,359,296 pixels in 2048x1152.
There are 3,686,400 in 2560x1440.
Testing at 2048x1152 is hardly any more taxing on the system than 1080p. It is also not a common resolution, and there are relatively few (if any) displays that have a native resolution of 2048x1152. Yes, it is technically 2K, but 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 are commonly referred to as 2K resolutions, and monitors sold with a native resolution of 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 are marketed as being 2K displays. They are also abundant on the market and heavily used by gamers.
So where are the color space measurements to back that statement up? I thought this is a review, not a rehash of manufacturer-provided specs? And since we're on the topic, where are the measurements of screen brightness, black level and color accuracy? What's the point reviewing a laptop if you omit a key component from testing?The panel not only features high resolution, but is also 100 percent Adobe RGB-compliant, which allows it to produce extremely vivid images.
More memory would only get it so far. If it doesn't have more shaders and higher bandwidth you could put 8GB or RAM on a 950 or 940, and they would still conk out at higher resolutions.
yes but for the price you would expect it to come with 4gb of gddr5 ram when competitors in this segment come with that amount of video ram on the 960m and they sell for 400 dollars cheaper.its got great specs until you get to the 2gb of gddr5 ram on the gt 960m, which ends up being the bottleneck of the entire system when it comes to the gaming aspect of it. and that's a shame to as 4gb oh gddr5 would have been greatly needed which is this laptops achilles heel in an other wise solid gaming laptop for the price.
This is a hilarious comment. Compared to the competition, this machine is ridiculously inexpensive and highly competitive.And who is going to spend over $2000 on a "gaming" laptop with a 4K display that can run games in 4K? Seriously Dell. Every since they went to this limited configurability sales model, their product offerings have been less than desirable
