Marvel’s Spider-Man doesn’t need any introduction to gamers. The first reveal trailer from E3 2016 was the driving force behind new PS4 Pro consoles. The game managed to find its way to 13 million PS players before August 2019. Considered one of the best superhero games released in recent years, it is no wonder many PC players are excited to get their hands on the game. Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PC was so successful, that reports log over 66,000 real-time players on Steam during the release day.
This review is not to tell you how amazing the game is. You already know the answer to that. Today our objective is a bit different. We are trying to help new laptop buyers to figure out, how well this game will run on their machines. So we will share the stats we tested, so it may help you to reach a decision. As with the most powerful GPUs, Spider-Man Remastered will run in full eye candy mode with retracing. But let’s focus on the lower end of the spectrum today. We want to share with you, how it feels to run this game on a base-level RTX 3050 GPU. So here’s our Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Review on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 GPU (Dell G15).
Dell G15 RTX 3050: Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Review
So as the title suggests our choice of weapon today is Dell G15. With an MSRP of just $999.99 (lower with deals), G15 provides the best chance to showcase this game’s performance in an RTX 3050 GPU. Thanks to Dell for providing us G15 Gaming laptop to add more power to our review. We have a Dell G15 Ryzen 5 5600H Model. Coupled with 16GB RAM, RTX 3050 4GB, and 512 SSD. This system is a kind of decent model designed to pull out the best of gaming at medium to high settings. RTX 3050 4GB plays a big role in the overall performance boost.
Dell G15 5515 Specs:
- AMD Ryzen 5 5600H
- 16 GB DDR4 2933Mhz RAM
- Nvidia RTX 3050 4GB GDDR6
- 512 SSD
- 15.6 Inch FHD 120Hz Anti-Glare Display
Marvel’s Spider-Man (Dell G15 RTX 3050) Performance
In our case, we were not expecting Dell G15 to run games like Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered in high graphics, but it was surprising. Here we got good 60 fps performance on medium settings. But even on high mode, the laptop was able to keep the frames at 45 fps for an enjoyable experience. If you are in the process to get a mid-range gaming PC, and wondering if there is a way to get a portable solution, then try Dell G15 Ryzen 5 edition. We will be sharing many performance videos of this laptop in the coming time. So here’s a screenshot of the FPS we were to get in high graphics mode:
As you can see from the above image, the game managed to stay above 60 fps while swinging through the open world. You will get higher fps if you are indoors. But as swinging around the city is one of the main highlights of the game, we wanted to showcase such moments. Here’s a screen grab of the video settings I used below. Note that I have turned the refraction off, cause I like the additional frames you can get out of this machine.
But even with RayTracing, with the DLSS option, you are not losing out on many framerates with better reflections. Combining both the tech is the key to the performance in this game. And we really appreciate the fps these NVIDIA cards are pushed out just a marginal difference when every single setting is turned high.
You can use Nvidia DLSS in Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered if you have a GeForce RTX 20 or GeForce RTX 30 series GPU. But while playing with DLSS turned on, we got boosted frames well over what we could imagine. The DLSS added sometimes added up to 2x FPS to the game (when compared to it disabled), and it looked significantly smooth compared to when you turn it off. So we would highly recommend you check out this game with RTX and DLSS on. It’s amazing to look at this game on boosted frame rates well over our expectations. This is due to the fact that DLSS employs powerful AI rendering to provide graphics performance that is equivalent to, if not better than, native resolution. Whereas only producing a fraction of the pixels in the traditional way. Sophisticated periodic return algorithms provide extraordinarily crisp visual data and all of this happens very fast in real-time. Dell G15 managed to check all the boxes for any aspiring new gamer out there.

Even though you may see some extra frames sometimes in the same GPU with raytracing turned off, NVIDIA GPUs help you overcome this issue with help of DLSSS. The combination of both RTX & DLSS is a match made in heaven for gamers. This sets apart even less expensive laptops like Dell G15, making the Spider-Man experience feel better than PS4. But you also get added real-time reflections on G15, which PS4 lacked. Even though RT shadow materials are not that much abundant in the game world, apart from glass buildings and many similar materials, this is definitely a setting you should try. RT reflections change the entire feel of the game. Nothing else adds as much realism as having an NVIDIA RTX card in your system with RT turned on. G15 lets you have a feel of these features with the max frames the GPU can give you.
So to conclude, it feels really good to run this game on a base-level RTX 3050 GPU. And considering the MSRP of just $999.99 (lower with deals), G15 is one the best laptops to play this game if you are a budget-oriented player. And yes, with the more powerful GPUs like RTX 3080, Spider-Man Remastered will be able to showcase its full capabilities. But RTX 3050 on Dell G15 is where you should start for the best of both worlds (awesome game + budget-friendly laptop).
