Dell refreshes its mainstream gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX GPUs, Core i9-8950HK, and OLED

Last spring, Dell replaced its Inspiron Gaming lineup with the new G-series. They're made for the casual to mainstream gaming market, but today at CES, Dell is refreshing the G5 and G7 with powerful internals.

Dell's tagline for the G5 15 is "Built to bring out your battle cry". It includes up to a Core i7-8750H CPU and it now offers Nvidia's GeForce RTX graphics, going up to the RTX 2080 with Max-Q. You can also get it with a 1080p display with a 144Hz refresh rate, or you can get a 4K OLED display at 60Hz.

The G7 comes in two flavors: 15-inch and 17-inch. The 15-inch model has the tagline, "Slim, but savage", while the 17-inch one is "Sleek but savage". Apparently, the point is that they're both savage. We get it.

But along with the RTX 2080 graphics that are also offered in the 15-inch G5, the G7 is offered with up to a Core i9-8950H CPU. The display options for the G7 15 are the same as the G5, at 1080p 144Hz or a 4K 60Hz OLED panel. Oddly, the 17-inch one does not have a 4K option.

All of the new Dell G-series laptops will be available on January 29. The G5 15 starts at $999, the G7 15 starts at $1,099, and the G7 17 starts at $1,379.99.
