CES 2020: Dell introduces sleek, affordable laptop for gamers

Written By published January 6, 2020

Dell delivered welcome news at CES for new and price-conscious gamers with the announcement of the newly redesigned Dell G5 15 SE (Special Edition). It is the first Dell G Series laptop to feature 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen 4000 H-Series Mobile Processors (up to 8 cores and 16 threads) paired with the latest AMD Radeon RX 5000M Series graphics. The two chips work seamlessly together using AMD SmartShift technology to optimize performance by automatically shifting power as needed between the Ryzen processor and Radeon graphics, giving gamers precisely what they want at each moment of play.

New features worth calling out include the Game Shift macro key, which allows quick launch of game-ready settings for enhanced performance, reducing latency and sharpening images for fast, immersive gaming. Also, Dell’s Alienware Command Center offers a hub for controlling in-game and peripheral lighting settings, integrating nahimic 3D audio to provide a 360 degree sound experience with Audio Recon overlay, and providing a central game library for easy customization.

The G5 15 SE’s thin, sleek redesign features a modern “fighter plane” look wrapped in a premium iridescent silver finish with metallic accents. Along with a 15.6-inch FHD display panel, the new G5 15 SE has an optional 144Hz refresh rate, optional four-zone RGB keyboard with WASD and optional 68WHr battery for those who don’t want to stop when they game on the go.

Did we mention the price? Dell is making the new G5 15 SE truly affordable with a starting price of $799.99 beginning in mid-April.
