Dell XPS 13 9380 + Intel Core i7 8565U Ubuntu Linux Performance Benchmarks
Written by Michael Larabel in Computers on 11 February 2019. Page 8 of 8. 11 Comments

With the single-threaded PHP scripting benchmark, the Dell XPS 13 9380 at least didn't peak above 69 degrees and was comparable to the thermal performance of the 9370.

The battery power consumption for the Dell XPS 13 9380 was still around 20 Watts in this single-threaded benchmark.

Over the course of many benchmarks, the Dell XPS 9380 had a minimum recorded temperature of 41 degrees Celsius during the idle moments and a peak of 97 degrees when hitting thermal throttling under the demanding multi-threaded benchmarks. The average temperature under load was 64 degrees.

Lastly, the battery power consumption varied from about 5 Watts during idling and when the screen was automatically dimmed to as high as 40 Watts under the most grueling benchmarks. On average through under load the power consumption was around 18.1 Watts.

Here's the geometric mean for all of the benchmarks carried out while on battery power. Here the Dell XPS 13 9380 is about 6% faster than the Dell XPS 13 9370, down from around 11% during the other benchmarks carried out while on AC power.

If you want to see how your own Linux laptop(s) compare to the range of performance benchmarks carried out in this article -- including the new Dell XPS 13 9380 -- simply install the Phoronix Test Suite and then run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1902114-SP-BENCHMARK79.
