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. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (25.6 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. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (41 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 8933 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

In review: Alienware 15 R3. Test model courtesy of Dell Germany.

Alienware 15 R3这台经过三次更新的设备在外观上近乎完美(除了突出的风扇区域)。目前没有任何其他游戏笔记本电脑提供了如此工艺精良、坚固且充满质感的机身。同时它也有独一无二的设计感,出色的输入设备和丰富的背光。

它的性能在未来几年内也不会有任何问题。尽管它的显卡现在略显迟缓,但是你可以通过Thunderbolt 3或Graphics Amplifier接口连接外置显卡。120赫兹刷新率的屏幕给了我们比较复杂的感受。它的响应速度、亮度和对比度都无可挑剔,但是可视角度范围、黑值和色彩准确度都不足平均水平。这也是TN技术与生俱来的不足之处(60赫兹屏幕采用IPS技术)。

不过,这台测试机最大的问题在于负载下的噪音和发热量——读者可以从“散热噪音”测试结果中发现。这可能源于它的处理器不同核心间的不均匀发热。在3D程序下它风扇带来的50dB(A)噪音显得有些过分,尽管Alienware 15 R3的厚度仅仅2.5厘米。我们将会测试另一台15寸设备,看看这是否是一个普遍问题,或者是我们测试机的个体缺陷。由于风扇和发热量的问题,我们决定在它的总分中减去1分。

如果你能够接受较差的音响效果这个细节问题的话,Alienware 15 R3几乎在所有方面都表现不同凡响。酷睿 i7-7700HQGeForce GTX 1070的组合可以在1920x1080像素分辨率和超高设定下运行所有最新游戏。
