Dell Precision 3541 Entry-Level Mobile Workstation Review


Dell Precision 3541 Mobile Workstation Rendering Related Benchmarks

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

Arion v2.5

Arion Benchmark is a standalone render benchmark based on the commercially available Arion render software from RandomControl. The benchmark is GPU-accelerated using NVIDIA CUDA. However, it’s unique in that it can run on both NVIDIA GPUs and CPUs.

Download the Arion Benchmark from here. First-time users will have to register to download the benchmark.

This is a GPU dominated benchmark, and we will see this trend continue with the Quadro P620.

MAXON Cinema4D 3D

ProRender is an OpenCL based GPU renderer which is available in MAXON’s Cinema4D 3D animation software. A fully functional 42-day trial version is available for downloaded from the MAXON website here. Note: Even after expiration, the trial can still be used to measure render times.

Redshift v2.6.32

Redshift is GPU-accelerated renderer with production-quality output. A demo version of this benchmark can be found here.

The trend here is clear. If you need your GPU-accelerated users to have maximum GPU performance the NVIDIA Quadro P620 is simply not the answer. On the other hand, if you simply need GPU acceleration and certified drivers, the Quadro P620 makes a lot of sense.

Next, we will finish up with power consumption, boot times, and our final thoughts.


  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.
