How's you Inspiron 7000 Performance stack up? (UserBenchMark)

I thought it may be useful to start a discussion and see how each other's system within the 7000 series is performing.

Here's what you need to do.  Download UserBenchMark.exe downloadble from link.

Please post the following.

Model Number:7xxx

What UserBenchMark does:

It runs a series of performance tests on each of your H/W components, CPU, GPU, HDD, SSD, Memory, USB drives if you have any plugged in during running the test.  Additionally, it shows you how those components are currently performing against others with the same hardware.

Re: How's you Inspiron 7000 Performance stack up? (UserBenchMark)

I'll go 1st and point out some things I identified while going along where I was able to increase performance.

Model: 7570

Out of the box performance:

After that test I identified the system was configured and using the built-in Intel UHD 620 GPU instead of the better performing Nvidia GeForce 940MX.  Going into the Nvidia control panel, I adjusted it so the preferred GPU was always using the 940MX.

940MX GPU configuration change performance:

Another thing I noticed is that the 1TB+8GB Seagate Hybrid HDD seemed to be performing well below average.  I tried performance optimization, defragmentations and that actually caused it to perform worse.  I ended up turning off Windows Bitlocker and saw a significant performance increase after doing that.  I went from the low-end of performance to the high end.

HDD Bitlocker turned off change performance:

The next things I did was purchase some system upgrades such as a Samsung 960 EVO SSD, 16GB SODIMM of Crucial Ballistix Sport memory and upgraded OS to Windows 10 Professional.

I did these upgrades in steps starting with the SSD and migrated the OS over to it.  At 1st I was in the top 92% of performance with the Samsung 960 SSD (sorry didn't save that link).  I then upgraded to Windows 10 Professional.

 

Samsung 960 EVO NVMe SSD + Windows 10 Professional upgrade performance:

So I noticed I was now about average in the 44% performance area with the Samsung SSD where I was wondering why I dropped so much from my 1st bench mark after the Windows upgrade.  What I was able to indentify was that the Windows 10 Pro upgrade installed the generic NVMe controller driver.  So I installed the Samsung NVMe driver and noticed my performance jumped up to the 82nd percentile.

 

Samsung 960 EVO NVMe SSD (with Samsung NVMe Driver + Windows 10 Professional upgrade + 16GB RAM addition (Total=24GB) performance:

Overall, my laptop performance significantly increased with a few changes, and some hardware upgrades.

 

Post yours up!!!
