Moving 1 GB worth of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes almost 40 seconds compared to just under 8 seconds on the Dell XPS 15. A fully inserted card protrudes by about 2 mm for safe transporting. Power consumption when gaming is slightly higher than the last generation GE73 with the GTX 1070.

  • 144 Hz panel with high color space coverage

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
When running Prime95, the CPU can be observed running at 3.9 GHz for the first few seconds until core temperature hits 96 C. Thereafter, clock rates stabilize at the 3.6 to 3.7 GHz range in order to maintain a more manageable core temperature of 90 C. The cooler core temperature on the GE75 9SG is due to its steeper performance throttling down to 2.4 GHz when both the CPU and GPU are stressed.

Pros[**]
  • Quieter than the Core i7-8750H and Core i9-9880H when gaming
  • Quiet during low-medium loads
  • Very good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Very high CPU and GPU temperatures when under high load
  • High surface temperatures when gaming
