Dell XPS 15 2-In-1: More Gaming And Graphics Testing

We also ran some additional game and graphics tests on the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1's RX Vega M GL GPU -- specifically Rise Of The Tomb Raider and Middle Earth: Shadow Of War -- to see just what it could do with some more demanding tests.

Putting The GPU To The Test

We ran Middle Earth: Shadow Of War at 1080p with the medium quality graphics setting and Rise Of The Tomb Raider was run using its DX12 code path at the same 1080p resolution, but with different image quality presets.

We don't have a ton of reference data from other notebooks with Shadow Of War, but versus the Vega 8 GPU built-into the Ryzen 5 2500U, there is no contest. The Radeon RX Vega M GL in the XPS 15 2-in-1 more than doubles the performance of Vega 8 at the Low IQ setting and it's 50% faster using the High IQ preset.


The Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 also put up some good numbers in the Rise Of The Tomb Raider benchmark. In this game, the Radeon RX Vega M GL breaks the 70 FPS mark with the Low IQ preset and still puts up a respectable 46 FPS+ with the more demanding High IQ preset. Even with demanding, modern games like this one, the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 is a capable game machine -- you may have to turn down the image quality a touch to keep some games buttery smooth, but that's still a giant leap forward versus any other ultrabook with a similar form factor to the XPS 15 2-in-1.
