Kort testrapport MSI GS73 8RF Stealth (i7-8750H, GTX 1070 Max-Q, FHD) Laptop

Florian Glaser, 01-09-2018

Afgetraind six-packje. Met een hoogte van net 19.6 mm behoort de GS73 Stealth tot de slankste game notebooks op de markt. Ondanks de compacte afmetingen, is het MSI gelukt om krachtige hardware in de kleine behuizing te proppen. In ons testrapport lees je of dit succesvol gelukt is, of dat het koelsysteem hiermee overbelast wordt.

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
6.2 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 4.4 ms stijging
↘ 1.8 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 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 4 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (25.8 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
7.8 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 4.4 ms stijging
↘ 3.4 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. » 3 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (41.3 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 25510 Hz ≤ 14 % helderheid instelling

Het backlight van het scherm flikkert aan 25510 Hz (hoogstwaarschijnlijk met PWM - Pulse-Width Modulation) aan een helderheid van 14 % en lager. Boven deze helderheid zou er geen flickering / PWM mogen optreden.

De frequentie van 25510 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: 53 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 8813 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz waargenomen.

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

Met de GS73 8RF Stealth biedt MSI een extreem slank, high-end notebook aan dat nog steeds goede prestaties levert, al zijn er slechts een paar verschillen met het bijna identieke vorige model.

De fraaie aluminium behuizing kan overtuigen met de vele aansluitingen en een RGB-verlicht toetsenbord. Op de kijkhoeken na kan ook het 120 Hz beeldscherm overtuigen. We begrijpen waarom MSI G-Sync  achterwege laat en liever Optimus implementeert voor verbeterde mobiliteit.

Verdere pluspunten zijn de snelle kaartlezer, het gezien het 17-inch formaat relatief lage gewicht en de erg hoge prestaties. Dankzij de Max-Q GPU blijft de geluidsontwikkeling binnen de perken. De behuizing en hardware wordt bij belasting echter extreem warm. En MSI moet ook het geluid verbeteren, omdat de geluidskwaliteit behoorlijk laag blijkt.

Alles bij elkaar adviseren we liever de GE73 aan game fanaten. Zelfs al is het 17-inch zustermodel ongeveer 1 cm dikker, doet deze het op vrijwel alle vlakken het net wat beter.
