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
24.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11.2 ms rise
↘ 13.2 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. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (26.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
38 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise
↘ 18.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (42.8 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 detected 201.6 Hz50 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 201.6 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 50 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 201.6 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 57 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 6262 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

In review: Aorus X3 Plus v7. Review unit courtesy of Xotic PC.

X3 Plus v7是一款雄心勃勃的设备。Aorus继续推动,将强大的硬件配备到一个紧凑的空间里。不幸的是,X3用力过猛,使得最终的结果充满妥协。虽然有一些明确的亮点,但是其他方面却削减到了平均水平,甚至可能削减了错误的地方。

X3的设计非常出色。迷人的表面加上细腻的音响效果,同样漂亮的外壳,采用金属材质使设备显得高档。全高清屏幕也令人惊叹。图像和文字足够锐利,颜色鲜艳且准确,即使在阳光直射的情况下,屏幕仍然保持亮丽清晰。游戏表现同样让人印象深刻。令人惊叹的是,现在用户还可以在笔记本电脑中获得桌面级别(或更好)的性能。此外,超频处理器和显卡的选项是不错的补充; 更多的灵活性增加了它的价值。

不幸的是,这种表现是有代价的。外壳太小,无法很好管理强大的内部部件所产生的热量,从而迫使风扇速度飞快地飙升,因为它们试图散掉足够的热量来保持事态发展。最终的结果是笔记本很响,运行时很热,并可能在严重的压力下热节流。而且,电源提供的大量功率消耗,可能会引起一些问题。 再次提醒,用户在将笔记本电脑推到极限时应谨慎。

总的来说,我们喜欢Aorus X3 Plus v7。它有很好的表现,但对比于 嘉艺科技 Aero 14 和 外星人 13, X3在其他方面有不足。平庸的键盘,令人沮丧的触摸板以及散热和噪音问题,使得X3达不到轻薄型游戏笔记本电脑的顶尖水平。

虽然Aorus X3 Plus v7在小机身中提供令人印象深刻的性能,但是我们认为,该设备做出了太多的妥协。寻找便携式设备的游戏玩家有更平衡的选择。
