Dell Precision 3541 Mobile Workstation System Benchmarks

We have a number of system-level benchmarks that we run through. We wanted to give some sense of where the Dell Precision 3541 falls.

Passmark

Passmark is a common workstation benchmark suite. Here we are simply going to present the result:

Here, the newer faster CPU helps the Dell solution notch a victory.

SPECworkstation 3

SPECworkstation3 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and DirectX application programming interfaces.

You can see that while GPU compute is present, for heavy GPU compute users a higher-end solution is needed.

SPECviewperf 13

SPECviewperf 13 measures the 3D graphics performance of systems running under the OpenGL and Direct X application programming interfaces.

Here again, the NVIDIA Quadro P620 GPU hurts results. At the same time, there are a number of users who may need certified GPU drivers more than absolute number-crunching performance. For those users, the Quadro P620 seems to be targeted.

Next, we wanted to get a sense of the rendering performance of the Dell Precision 3541 Mobile Workstation.

  1. Great benchmark !

    Have you noticed some fans noice during your tests and idle ?
    This seems to be a real problem for new Dell laptops.

  2. This is the dumbest laptop review I’ve read.

    * 5 pages of benchmarks: but these are almost pointless, you are benchmarking the specific CPU configuration you have, when Dell sell this machine with a range of different CPU options. Any laptop with the same CPU and same RAM etc is going to have very similar benchmarks.

    * No reference at all to the aspects which differentiate laptops, i.e. screen quality, keyboard layout, touchpad, fan noise / cooling, and overall build quality.
