The Dell G7 17 7790 / G7790 is a big-screen laptop for gamers.

It features a 17.3-inch wide viewing angle display with optional high refresh rate of 144 Hz.

As the most important computer part for gaming, the G7 17 7790 / G7790 features Nvidia GeForce dedicated video card options. Customers can choose between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB, RTX 2070 Max-Q 8GB and the RTX 2080 Max-Q 8GB. The RTX series is recommended for those who want top-tier gaming performance and ray-tracing technology for more realistic effects in games. Furthermore, the 7790 / G7790 configurations equipped with the RTX cards additionally provide a USB-C port with Thunderbolt data input-output technology.

The Dell G7 17 7790 / G7790 features the 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9300H with four computing cores or the Core i7-9750H with six cores. These powerful processors are optimized for gaming and heavier computing duties like video editing. The i7-9750H is recommended for those who want ultimate performance.

The offered system memory sizes are 8GB and 16GB. Getting the pricier 16GB option makes sense, because some games can require more than 8GB to run optimally. Thankfully, both 8GB and 16GB options are in dual channel memory mode, so there are no slowdowns related to single channel memory use.

For storing data, the G7 17 7790 / G7790 features either a 1-Terabyte hard drive combined with a 128GB or 256GB solid state drive or pure solid state drive storage with 512GB capacity.

The provided battery capacity of 60 WHr is generally good. But, you should keep in mind that the components of the 7790 / G7790 are designed for the best performance, not power-efficiency. Also, the big 17.3″ screen requires more power than the smaller ones. Overall, you can’t expect a great battery life with this laptop model.

If you like the concept of the Dell G7 17 7790 / G7790 but want a more compact laptop, you can take a look at the 15.6-inch version – the G7 15 7590 / G7590. Dell also offers cheaper G5 and G3 gaming notebooks, but they are only available in the 15.6-inch size.
