Kort testrapport ASUS ROG Strix SCAR III G531GW (Core i9-9880H, RTX 2070) Laptop

Mike Wobker, 👁 Florian Glaser, 09-06-2019

RGB-geïnspireerd. ASUS focust zich met de derde incarnatie van de ROG Strix Scar op meer dan slechts RGB verlichting. Het bedrijf heeft ook een handige beveilingsfeature genaamd Keystone ingebouwd, samen met een reeks krachtige hardware. De G531GW biedt op papier veel potentie, maar kan deze voldoen aan onze verwachtingen?

Responstijd Scherm

De responstijden van het scherm tonen hoe snel het scherm in staat is om van één kleur naar de andere te veranderen. Trage responstijden kunnen aanleiding geven tot 'nabeelden' rond bewegende objecten of het scherm wazig maken (blur). Vooral spelers van snelle 3D-games hebben baat bij een scherm met snelle responstijden.
       Responstijd Zwart naar Wit
11.2 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 6.8 ms stijging
↘ 4.4 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde prima responstijden in onze tests maar is misschien wat te traag voor competitieve games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 10 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (25.1 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
17.2 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 9.2 ms stijging
↘ 8 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde prima responstijden in onze tests maar is misschien wat te traag voor competitieve games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.9 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (40 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

Om de schermhelderheid te verlagen schakelen sommige laptops het backlight erg snel aan en uit. Dit gebeurt aan een dergelijk hoge frequentie dat het niet zichtbaar is voor het menselijk oog. Als de frequentie te laag is kunnen personen met gevoelige ogen geïrriteerd geraken, hoofdpijn krijgen en zelfs flickering waarnemen.
Screen flickering / PWM waargenomen 24040 Hz ≤ 29 % helderheid instelling

Het backlight van het scherm flikkert aan 24040 Hz (hoogstwaarschijnlijk met PWM - Pulse-Width Modulation) aan een helderheid van 29 % en lager. Boven deze helderheid zou er geen flickering / PWM mogen optreden.

De frequentie van 24040 Hz is redelijk hoog en de meeste mensen die gevoelig zijn aan flickering zouden dit dus niet mogen waarnemen of geïrriteerde ogen krijgen.

Ter vergelijking: 51 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 9457 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz waargenomen.

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier.

De ASUS ROG Strix SCAR III G531WG is een solide game notebook. Weinig verrassend draaien moderne games vloeiend op het 240 Hz Full HD beeldscherm. De RTX 2070 GPU is ook krachtig genoeg om op een externe monitor games op 4K weer te geven. Het notebook is makkelijk te repareren en onderhouden en we waarderen de meegeleverde Keystone-beveiliging. Het numerieke toetspad geïntegreerd in het touchpad is ook een leuk detail en onderscheid de ROG Strix van de concurrentie.

De ASUS ROG Strix SCAR III G531GW is een solide 15.6-inch game notebook. Echter, de luide ventilatoren en ondermaatse RTX 2070 prestaties voorkomen een solide plek aan kop.

Teleurstellend presteert de ROG Strix niet zo goed in de benchmarks en games tests als we verwacht hadden. Andere notebooks leveren simpelweg meer prestaties met vergelijkbare hardware dan ons testmodel. ASUS heeft het notebook ook uitgerust met martelend luide ventilatoren, die de indrukwekkende luidsprekers volledig kunnen overstemmen. Helaas kun je alleen van de speakers genieten als je niet aan het gamen bent. Het is onfortuinlijk dat ASUS niet ook een 4K optie aanbiedt, omdat de ROG Strix krachtig genoeg is om moderne games op die resolutie te spelen. Al met al is er veel te zeggen voor de ROG Strix SCAR III G531GW, maar zijn erg enkele significante minpunten.
