Test: Razer Blade 2016 (sammanfattning)

Sven Kloevekorn, 01/01/2017

Solid som berget. Nya Razer Blade innehåller ett GTX 1060 i ett utmärkt aluminiumchassi. Datorn har bra inmatningsenheter, Thunderbolt 3 och en fantastisk IGZO-panel. Vad kan gå fel? Utöver några småsaker är spelprestandan den största svagheten, men den har åtgärdats med en uppdatering.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
37 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 28 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 91 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (27.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
41 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 26 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 44 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (44 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 200 Hz90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 200 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 200 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 59 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 1730 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 30860) Hz was measured.

Med tanke på den omfattande listan med fördelar kan vi inte låta bli att bli besvikna på CPU-strypningen (som dock kan åtgärdas med en uppdatering). Skärmens PWM-flimmer och långa svarstider kan också få potentiella köpare att tveka. Den obligatoriska registreringen är en annan olägenhet. Fläktljud får man acceptera med tanke på det tunna chassit, men det högfrekventa ljudet från fläktarna kan definitivt orsaka problem för användaren.

En stor fördel är naturligtvis det utmärkta chassit – vi kan inte riktigt föreställa oss hur det skulle kunna förbättras. Layouten kan verka lite udda, men Chroma-tangentbordet är definitivt ett plus tack vare de omfattande anpassningsmöjligheterna. Med snabbt ac-WiFi, Thunderbolt 3 via USB typ C och HDMI 2.0 är Blade framtidssäker. Spelmaskinen har också en ljusstark IGZO panel med hög kontrast och naturtrogna färger.
