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
12 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 6 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (26.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
25 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (43 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 not detected

In comparison: 58 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 5519 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Läs det längre originaltestet på engelska här.

Utseendemässigt är den tredje revisionen av Alienware 15 (R3) en fullträff (med undantag för det utskjutande fläktområdet). Det finns för närvarande ingen annan bärbar speldator med ett så sofistikerat, stadigt och välbyggt chassi. Designen är unik, inmatningsenheterna bra och datorn har flera belysta element.

Den borde dessutom stå sig i ett par år – när GPU:n inte räcker till längre kan du bara ansluta en extern lösning via Thunderbolt 3 eller Graphics Amplifier-porten. 120 Hz-skärmen ger blandade känslor. Svarstider, belysning och kontrast är utmärkta, men betraktningsvinklarna, svärtan och färgåtergivningen är under genomsnittet. Det beror på TN-tekniken (60 Hz-modellen bygger på IPS).

Men det största problemet med vår testmodell var temperaturen och ljudnivåerna under belastning, vilket förmodligen beror på den ojämna uppvärmningen av CPU-kärnorna. Nästan 50 dB (A) i 3D-spel är en hel del, även om Alienware 15 R3 är förvånansvärt tunn (2,5 cm). Kanske är det bara vår testmodell eller så är det ett generellt problem. 

Om du har överseende med denna detalj – och den mediokra ljudbilden – övertygar Alienware 15 R3 på nästan alla punkter. Kombinationen Core i7-7700HQ och GeForce GTX 1070 kan hantera alla moderna spel med maxinställningar och Full HD-upplösning.
