Kort testrapport MSI Alpha 15 A3DDK: een ernergieslurpende middenklasse game notebook

Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser, 13-02-2020

Compacte gamer. De AMD-versie van de Alpha 15 geeft alle huidige games vloeiend weer op het matte, FHD, 144 Hz en FreeSync-compatibel 15.6-inch beeldscherm. Het relatief hoge stroomverbruik van de componenten eisen echter wel hun tol.

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
10.4 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 5.2 ms stijging
↘ 5.2 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 (24.9 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
7 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 3.4 ms stijging
↘ 3.6 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde erg snelle responstijden in onze tests en zou zeer geschikt moeten zijn voor snelle games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.9 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 5 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (39.5 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 niet waargenomen

Ter vergelijking: 50 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 17113 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz waargenomen.

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

MSI heeft met de de Alpha 15 een fatsoenlijke middenklasse 15.6-inch game notebook gemaakt. De Ryzen 7 3750H APU en Radeon RX 5500M GPU maken het mogelijk om alle huidige games vloeiend weer te geven. Je kunt ervan uitgaan dat de Alpha 15 een 1080p game notebook is die games kan spelen op gemiddelde tot hoge detailinstellingen. In sommige gevallen kunnen de detailinstellingen verder omhoog geschroefd worden, maar enkel in weinig eisende games. Al met al plaatst de RX 5500M zich tussen de GeForce GTX 1650 en GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q.

De Alpha 15 heeft ook een relatief hoog stroomverbruik, bij zowel belasting als idle. De 51 Wh batterij geeft ook niet echt hoge batterijduren. We denken dat MSI het energiebeheer nogmaals onder de loep moet nemen. De notebook is ook erg luid, met name wanneer we het prestatieprofiel selecteren. Als je niet maximale prestaties nodig heeft, dan kun je in het MSI Dragon Center het Silent Mode profiel selecteren. Dat zou voor dagelijks gebruik in elk geval het te prefereren profiel zijn.

De MSI Alpha 15 A3DDK is in essentie een succesvolle middenklasse game notebook. Het notebook heeft echter last van enkele minpunten die MSI nog niet opgelost heeft, als dat al mogelijk is.

MSI rust de notebook uit met een snelle NVMe SSD, die 512 GB opslagruimte biedt. Als dat niet genoeg is, dan kun je ook een 2.5-inch SATA schijf toevoegen. MSI levert de Alpha 15 namelijk met een vrij SATA-slot en bevestigingsframe.

Het notebook heeft een voldoende helder IPS-paneel, met een matte afwerking en standaard 1080p resolutie. Het paneel heeft een goede contrastverhouding, stabiele kijkhoeken, fatsoenlijke kleurweergave en korte responstijden. Het ondersteund ook AMD FreeSync-technologie. De Alpha 15 heeft verder voldoende poorten, maar geen Thunderbolt 3. Het verlichte toetsenbord is ook voldoende voor alledaags gebruik.

De Alpha 15 zal het echter niet makkelijk hebben om uit te blinken. Zo zijn er enkele concurrenten die meer waarde voor je geld bieden. De HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec0017ng kost € 1150, een goede € 150 minder dan ons testmodel. De Pavilion Gaming 15 heeft ook een krachtiger GPU dan de Alpha 15, stillere ventilatoren, lagere temperaturen, lager stroomverbruik en aanzienlijk betere batterijduur.
