Can you Game? #2| Dell XPS 13 QHD+

This was a very popular article back in January and I have decided to make a sequel to that article. This time it’s a much higher end laptop, the Dell XPS 13 QHD+. The FHD version will be part 3 which will come soon.

Brief Specs

It has the Intel Core i5-5200U CPU with 128GB SSD, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and a 13.3 Inch Screen.

Either I tested wrong or what the Dell XPS 13 does not perform great with games. This however is a 5th generation CPU which is a generation old. The XPS 13 is more for productivity and little gaming and video editing. All games tested were in medium settings but still the XPS 13 had un enjoyable FPS numbers.
