Brand new MacBook M1 Pro laptop, genuine Apple Thunderbolt cable connection to the monitor (Dell U4021QW), nothing else connected to the laptop. Ethernet connected directly to U4021QW. I verified full gigabit speeds (Fios symmetrical gigabit internet) to the laptop using and old usb-c hub, and when I plugin my work laptop (Dell Latitude 5520) via Thunderbolt I'm getting full gigabit speeds.
I was recently given an Inspiron 5520. Specs are almost identical to yours; the only difference I notice is that it doesn't have the dedicated AMD graphics card. It only has Intel HD Graphics 4000. Not a problem, since, as you mentioned, the AMD graphics doesn't even work.

Using the Geekbench 4 benchmark, the Precision scored a solid 4,520 in the single-core test, and an even stronger 14,801 in the multi-core test. That makes it significantly faster than the quad-core seventh-generation Intel Core i7-7600HQ running on the Asus ROG Strix GL553V, which is a fast gaming machine. As expected, the Precision 5520 blew away dual-core Intel Core i7 processors.
The Precision 5520 also tore through our Handbrake test, which converts a 420MB video file, in 476 seconds. This result dominates our dual-core Core i7 comparison machine, compete strongly against both the Asus with its Core i7-7600HQ, and bests the ThinkPad P50 with its own Xeon E3-1505M CPU.
Storage speed is incredibly important for tasks like encoding video, which needs to write loads of data very quickly, a burden that a mobile workstation like the Precision 5520 is likely to face. Dell made the wise decision to use a 512GB Samsung SM961 M.2 NVMe SSD, and it shows in some blazing fast performance.
We chose comparison systems using very fast SSDs, including the ThinkPad P50 and the HP Spectre X360 15 (2017) with its relatively new and fast Toshiba SSD. Frankly, the Precision 5520 simply blew them all way. In the CrystalDiskMark read test, the machine scored a phenomenal 2,931 megabytes per second, nearly double the closest competitor. And it scored an equally impressive 1,679MB/s on the write test, which is closer to the ThinkPad P50 but still significantly faster.
Nevertheless, by our objective measures, the Precision 5520 as equipped is still a decent gaming system for the occasional session. It scored well in the 3DMark suite of gaming benchmarks, scoring 3,954 in the Fire Strike test, 13,439 in Sky Diver, and 1,270 in Time Spy. Those are strong enough results to be competitive against our comparison machines using GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M and 965M, and even the newer GTX 1050.
Sure enough, in our real-life gaming tests, the Precision 5520 proved itself capable of playing games well enough to help you pass the time in between bouts of work. For example, running Civilization VI, the machine managed a playable 35FPS at Ultra graphics settings at 1080P, and a solid 47FPS at Medium settings. Battlefield 1 showed similar results, with the Quadro M1200 managing 32FPS at Ultra settings and 44FPS at Medium settings.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, on the other hand, was a bit too much for the Precision 5520. At High graphics settings, the machine averaged 21FPS, and that dropped down to 14FPS at Ultra settings. For Honor was playable at Medium graphics settings at 33FPS, but dropped down to 21FPS at Extreme settings.
