Kort testrapport Schenker XMG A517 (Clevo N850EP6) Laptop

Florian Glaser, 👁 Florian Glaser, 24-06-2018

Gemengde prestaties. Vanuit een puur technisch oogpunt is de Schenker Technologies XMG A517 behoorlijk up-to-date. Onderdelen zoals een hexa-core CPU, 144 Hz beeldscherm en NVMe SSD zullen vooral gamers aanspreken en beloven goede prestaties. Lees hier waarom de notebook ons tóch niet helemaal heeft kunnen overtuigen.

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
11.6 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 6.8 ms stijging
↘ 4.8 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 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (25.6 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
16.8 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 8.4 ms stijging
↘ 8.4 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 0.9 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 6 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd beter is dan het gemiddelde (41 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: 52 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 8781 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz waargenomen.

De Schenker XMG A517 bevindt zich momenteel niet in een gemakkelijke positie. Hoewel de invoerapparaten, onderhoudsmogelijkheden, aansluitingen en uitrusting hoge punten scoren, worden we teleurgesteld door de goedkoop ogende behuizing en slechte geluidskwaliteit.

De behuizing voelt zeer goedkoop (sleutelwoord: krakende geluiden) en laat bij een nadere blik zwakke punten zien in de bouwkwaliteit.

Ook de andere categorieën zijn gemengd. Het zeer responsieve 144 Hz beeldscherm met brede kijkhoeken kan het gebrek aan prestaties maar deels compenseren. Ongeacht het een bug of fysieke tekortkomingen betreft, het koelsysteem had krachtiger moeten zijn om de ernstige prestatiebeperkingen van de GPU te voorkomen.

Zonder dit gebrek zou de XMG A517 een waardige concurrent voor de Asus ROG GU501GM en MSI GP63 8RE zijn.
