Vram will be a stretch for AAA games, I get low vram warning for HL Alyx on my Quest 2 + 8gb 1070 (still runs reasonably well), 4gb would choke it for sure. Lighter titles may be fine.

Good price, but 3050 and 3050 Ti are (a bit) slower than 1660 Ti. All mobile versions.

I'm sorry but the 3050 is sort of a piece of junk, with Nvidia gimling it.. Guess this laptop would make sense for someone on a extreme budget but I don't see the point of lugging around a heavy laptop like this given its performance.

Thx Op. I just ordered with 10% email discount ended paying $854.99 before tax. Estimated delivery date is Sep 15. I'll start looking out for deals on ddr4 3200 1*8gb or 2*16gb ram. I chatted online with Dell and the rep said I won't be charged until it is shipped and warranty won't start until it is delivered. I'll cancel if there is a better deal. Too bad Rakuten currently only has 2% cash back. This is a good deal IMO considering Bestbuy is selling Zotac RTX 3060 for $650. This laptop with latest AMD 5000 series CPU will be good for 1080 gaming.

I just received my G15 with 5600H and rtx3050. I am impressive with it for the price. I ended up paying $850 after tax. My son tested it with cyberpunk 2077 started with low preset but turned onna few visual candies and DLSS ultra performance. Average fps was around 50. Very playable. 8GB ram is single channel. It will be upgraded to dual channel and that should add a few extra fps.

I upgrade ram with 2 x 16GB and now cyberpunk 2077 fps has doubled in the range of 60-100fps with DLSS at Balanced and low preset with a few eye candies turned on. I also added a 2nd 1TB NVME SSD and secured with 3M doubled sided tape. I didn't bother getting the specific Dell mounting bracket. 100% worth buying when it is on sale and can stack 10% subscription/unidays discount and 8% or more rakuten cashback.
