Dell Inspiron 7567 Notebook Review Series 15000 Gaming: acceptable FPS in all games, inexpensive

Do you want a laptop with a powerful graphics NVIDIA? Prepare a minimum of 100-120 thousand – so much at the moment are the most simple configuration with GeForce GTX 1070 on board. Variants with GeForce GTX 1080 is even more expensive. It is a harsh reality that can not be avoided in the near future. Those who are not willing to part with such a sum, and still wants a gaming laptop, it makes sense to look at the options on the basis of mobile video cards GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Younger schedule the 1000 series GeForce pull any modern game resolution Full HD – not always at maximum or high graphics quality settings, but still. Let the proof of my words will serve as a review of this, which is considered the most simple modification of a 15.6-inch laptop Dell Inspiron 7567 equipped with the CPU Core i5 generation Kaby Lake, 8 GB DDR4 RAM and 4-gigabyte version of the GeForce GTX 1050.

About NVIDIA budget graph

If NVIDIA has developed a version of the notebooks GeForce GTX 1070 and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics processors are low in much inferior to analogues used in graphics cards for desktop PCs, making mobile GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is not worse than the company’s board was not difficult. Simply “green” have decided to hold budgetary decisions out until 2017.

As is known, Pascal entry level among cards installed in the desktop, there are strict differentiation: y GeForce GTX 1050 – 2 GB VRAM at GeForce GTX 1050 Ti – 4 GB. In the case of notebook versions of these variants are possible graphics adapters: commercially you can meet both GeForce GTX 4 GB 1050 c and 1050 GeForce GTX Ti 2 GB. And that’s not all the differences between video cards for laptops and PCs.

Firstly, at the higher of notebook GPU frequency accelerators, so in theory the mobile version of GeForce GTX 1050 Ti productive desktop version. In theory – because in the case of laptops much solves the efficiency of the cooling system.

Secondly, the NVIDIA significantly “cut” of the mobile GeForce GTX chip 1050. For example, between the versions of the GPU GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti desktop there is a minimal difference in performance. In games in resolution Full HD, if not GPU performance is limited because of the lack of video memory, a younger version of the GP107 lags behind the elder by only 5-8 frames per second. That’s why NVIDIA strictly ranks these digital maps of GDDR5 volume. But between mobile GeForce GTX GeForce GTX 1050 1050 Ti difference in speed will be noticeable because the younger version GP107 has half the number of raster operations units (16 to 32). In addition, the older version is much higher clock speed: 1493 MHz against 1345 MHz. Since the notebook’s GeForce GTX 1050 has no restrictions on the amount of video memory, there is a risk that users simply would not buy the more expensive GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, if the performance difference was minimal.

Specifications and equipment

By the time of preparation of this material on the official website of Dell, there were five versions Inspiron 7567. However, not all the models I found in the local market. Four of the five configurations are available in two colors: red and black. The most productive modification in addition received a 4K-display. In the Russian retail, if we ignore the color and preloaded software, there were four versions of the notebook, all with Full HD-screen. The table shows the characteristics of the most accessible and the most expensive version, which you can purchase in our area.

Major modifications Inspiron 15,000 Gaming (7567), as well as the other 15.6-inch notebooks of this class (at Lenovo – a series of Legion Y520, from ASUS – ROG STRIX GL553, at HP – OMEN 15, from Acer – Aspire VX 15) formed around the four components: Core i5-7300HQ quad processors and Core i7-7700HQ, and GeForce GTX graphics card 1050, and 1050 GeForce GTX Ti. The Inspiron 7567 only apply to 4-gigabyte version of the graphics accelerator. Viewed in this review laptop under the number 7567-9309, in addition to the most basic processor and the adapter has received a hybrid hard drive Toshiba MQ02ABD100H volume of 1000 GB and 8 GB of RAM DDR4-2400. Among other options 7567 Dell Inspiron present model SSD of 128 GB to 256 GB and 512 GB and laptops with 16 GB of RAM.

In addition, I note that there are versions for sale under the number 7567-8814 (black) and 7567-8920 (red). This is the simplest configuration, similar to that considered in the review. The difference is that instead of the Windows 10 pre-installed on their Linux operating system, so the version of the 7567-8814 and 7567-8920 cost less – 50 000 rubles on average.

Appearance

Inspiron 7567 – a strict and at the same time  is quite catchy laptop. I believe that this should be a device with a focus on the game. Dell designers managed to combine a smooth sleek and sharp corners. The more important point – is the general build quality of the device.

In the closed position Inspiron 7567 decent thickness is – in comparison, for example, the same indicator for ultrabukov – 25.4 mm. However, similar 15.6-inch model with a similar set of iron almost as “complete”: y Lenovo Legion Y520 – 25,8 mm, from HP OMEN 15 – 25 mm, from Acer Aspire VX 15 – 28.9 mm. It turns out, the Inspiron 7567 is actually one of the most “slim” notebooks in its class. The weight of such models lies in the region of 2.5 kg and particularly well Dell Inspiron 7567 backpack will weight 2.6 kg without external power supply.

laptop lid is not fully revealed – about 160 degrees. The design of the rotary mechanism used rigid joints which firmly fix the set position of the screen by the user.

Cover, side faces, as well as the area with the keyboard and touchpad are covered with plastic soft-touch – a nice touch, but a relatively brand. It visible dust, fingerprints and stains from the cleaning agent.

Dell Inspiron 7567 bottom is made of ordinary matte plastic. Most of it is to unfasten the cover with perforations for the cooling fan and the grating to output the sound from the woofer. Slide the laptop on a flat surface do not give two long rubber feet – tested on a wooden, glass and plastic surfaces.

All major interfaces are placed at the sides of the notebook. Left withdrawn hole for installation Noble Lock Castle, a connector for an external power adapter, one USB 3.0 Type-A card reader is familiar with SD / SDHC / SDXC formats. On the right side of Dell engineers have placed two more USB 3.0 A-type, the HDMI-output, the Ethernet-port and a combined 3.5-mm mini-jack that connects to the gaming headset. One of USB-ports supports USB PowerShare feature allows you to charge connected to this jack external devices even when the notebook is in sleep mode – as long as the battery is discharged at a certain percentage of the total capacity. The user can set a value for the BIOS setup USB PowerShare: 0, 3, 10, 25, 50 or 75%.

Even in models with 15.6-inch screens stopped using frankly outdated optical drives – no DVD or something like that in a Dell Inspiron 7567 does not.

Keyboard black models equipped with white backlight is white, while the red models – red. Choose a different shade impossible, but provides just two brightness modes. If the notebook is not working on the network, and the user is within two minutes of not using the keypad, the backlight automatically turns off to nothing is not battery power.

Dimensions Dell Inspiron 7567 will fit in it full-size keyboard with number pad. Stroke buttons in a small, but distinct. Pressing in a low and is accompanied by a thud. At the same tactile feel the presence of a small backlash, which does not interfere with typing and during the game.

I did not like the tiny little Enter and arrow keys – get used to it had the longest. But the Caps Lock, Tab, Backspace and “shift” very convenient size. All control of the laptop keys that are activated in conjunction with the Fn-modifier, placed in the top row on the keys Esc, F1-F12 and PrtScr.

With the help of the touchpad can be controlled by the operating system with the help of gestures. The very small touch pad (10,6 × 8 cm) and for traditionally game decisions placed closer to the left side. Pressing the clear, with a strong and audible click. Any flaws I noticed when using the touchpad, but in games uniquely more convenient to use the mouse.

The webcam allows you to shoot in 720p resolution at 30 Hz. Video quality – bad room in the presence of artificial light the picture is dark and very noisy. For example, such an image is not exactly suitable for the streams. Satisfactory quality really only get in bright daylight. For example, in the street on a sunny day.
