The New Dell G Series Brings Families Together
Summer is traditionally a season for togetherness – family vacations, backyard barbeques and outdoor festivals. Of course, all things traditional have been upended recently and the concept of togetherness has been redefined. It’s that recognition of individual needs that brings families together and makes me appreciate the Dell G Series even more – this is a product ecosystem designed for gamers at every level.
With its myriad of form factors, colours and configurations, the G Series stands out as one of the broadest selections of gaming systems Dell has ever offered. Its appeal parallels the strong growth of the PC gaming industry and the big tent of gamers it welcomes. What’s consistent across the G Series ecosystem is the upscale design, performance muscle and great value – ultimately delivering the best gaming experiences without a significant investment.
Dell G7 Laptop
Dell is introducing the new G7 15/17, a powerful gaming laptop that stands out with its own sophisticated style that can easily go from classroom to gaming.
Completely redesigned – with a slim design, powerful performance and value-added features like customizable chassis light – the new G7 touts significant all-around improvements over the previous gen for on-the-go gaming. As we struggle to squeeze into our swimsuits this summer, the G7 15 is a step ahead, dropping by 4mm to a svetle 20.5mm at the hinge, thanks to the innovative hinge design and the black anodized, all-metal chassis construction. The same for its elegant narrow bezel display, going from 9.9mm to 6.5mm on G7 15 and 8.16mm on the 17-inch.
The G7 is powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core CPUs (up to i9) and NVIDIA’s GeForce graphic cards (up to NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 with Max-Q Design on the 15”, or NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2070 Super on the 17”). Its gameplay experience is enhanced with a precision glass trackpad, customizable chassis lighting and 4-zone RGB keyboard. And a discrete “Game Shift” macro key instantly kicks the fan’s speed into dynamic performance mode for heavy action scenes. Nahimic 3D Audio rounds out the experience with a 360⁰ soundscape with VoiceBoost and Sound Tracker radar. The new G7 15/17 will be available in South Africa by September 2020.
Dell G5 Desktop
In the spirit of gaming desktops, Dell brings roller coaster-worthy momentum to the G5 desktop.
Cranking up the torque is Intel’s new 10th Gen Core CPU, delivering performance upgrades for high frames-per-second and smoother gameplay. Paired with VR-capable NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX/RTX or AMD Radeon™ RX 5600 graphics cards for stunning 1080p gaming, you can experience strong performance and lighting quick responsiveness for uninterrupted gameplay.
During intense gaming sessions, you’ll love the G5’s four thermal mode options in the Alienware Command Center that’s adjustable whether you’re gaming, working, studying or watching videos. Easy to expand or upgrade with tool-less entry, G5 is designed as a compact desktop that makes it easier to game in a smaller space like a dorm room, bedroom or office. Its distinctive front panel design is accented by full RGB LED lighting and an optional clear window side panel, making it a stunning conversation starter. The new G5 will be available in South Africa from August / September 2020.

Joining the XPS 17 laptop as the latest addition to NVIDIA’s RTX Studio program, this desktop provides massive performance for powering creation, gaming and VR.
