Dell Inspiron 27 (7775) AIO - Gaming With Theif And Mordor And Power

The Radeon RX 580 and Ryzen platform Dell designed into its Inspiron 27 7775 gave the system some serious teeth in the synthetic benchmarks, but what about real world applications?  No worries, it was able to rip into the games we tested too, as you're about to see.  While an AIO is disadvantaged in terms of thermal and power constraints versus a full desktop form factor, Dell was able to get a lot of graphics powerhouse for solid gaming performance.

Thief Benchmarks
DirectX 11 Game Testing

Thief is a stealth video game developed by Eidos Montréal, published by Square Enix. The game is set in 'The City', a dark fantasy world inspired by Victorian, Gothic, and steampunk aesthetics. Players control Garrett, a master thief who embarks on several missions focusing on stealing from the rich. Thief make use of the popular Unreal engine for render its intricate, dark worlds.

You may not be able to play at 4K resolution with the settings we tested the systems at, but you can get some great frame rates at 1920x1080.  Thief tends to favor NVIDIA GPUs but this platform overcame the XPS' limitations to push the envelope even further.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Benchmarking
DirectX 11 Game Testing

Monolith’s surprisingly fun Orc-slaying title Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, delivers a ton of visual fidelity even at the lowest quality settings. So, to maximize the eye-candy on these high-end graphics cards, we ran the game’s Medium quality present in the benchmark routine at a couple of resolutions, topping out at 3840x2160. All of the game's graphics-related options were enabled, along with FXAA and Camera Blur.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor shows the new Inspiron with AMD's Radeon RX M580 for this test pushing gameplay into the 4K range. While our previous systems couldn't handle their native resolutions, the Inspiron 27 7000 knocks it out of the park again. The new Inspiron 27 is definitely gaming capable and well-equipped to do so.  It outperformed the XPS 27 again showing that Dell once again took the power from its performance lines and has placed it within grasp for the rest of its consumer product customers.

Total System Power Consumption
Tested at the Outlet
Before bringing this article to a close, we'd like to cover a couple of final data points for power consumption and acoustics. Throughout all of our benchmarking and testing, we monitored noise output and tracked how much power our test system was consuming using a power meter. Our goal was to give you an idea of how much power each configuration used while idle and also while under a heavy workload. Please keep in mind that we were testing total system power consumption at the outlet here.

Power consumption is right in-line with the XPS 27. A couple of watts separate the two top-end Dell all-in-one machines, but we're talking about negligible differences here.
