Laptop / Notebook Whiskey Lake Gaming Geforce

戴尔家的蓝天杀手。 最新的17.3英寸Alienware将推出几乎所有其他游戏笔记本电脑都没有的硬件和功能。 Area-51m不仅抛弃了45 W核心的H系列CPU,使用了95 W的酷睿K系列CPU,而且还在窄边框机身中配备了Tobii眼动跟踪。 这售价高于3000的笔记本是否真的可以与同类规格的台式电脑相媲美?

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
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 4.8 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. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
13.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8 ms rise
↘ 5.2 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 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.5 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 13595 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

外星人Area-51m笔记本电脑评测. Test model provided by Dell

从换代的角度来看,Area-51m是Alienware 17 R5的值得尊敬的继承者。它保留了我们喜欢的旧型号地方(斜面键盘,坚固的设计,易于维修),同时更新了我们认为最需要关注的几个方面(更强的散热,更窄的边框,更快的性能)。续航时间很短,但如果这是刚需,那么我们建议您考虑Alienware m17。

毫不奇怪,性能是这台笔记本电脑的真正亮点。事实上,该机器仅仅比我们内部台式PC参照物性能上差百分之几,这本身就令人印象深刻。游戏中的风扇噪音几乎与Alienware 17 R5完全相同,考虑到性能的大幅提升,这对于那些希望拥有更安静机器的人来说可能是一种失望。

让Area-51m如此特别地方,似乎也是其核心劣势。例如,可升级且可能面向未来的DGFF显卡是一个非常酷的概念。然而,在实际的RTX 2080继任者出现之前,这只是一个实验性产品而已。其次,与传统的45W CoffeeLake-H相比,选择95+ W Core i9-9900K肯定会提升CPU性能,但是在满载下高于99度的核心温度会又我们感到痛苦。

虽然如此高的核心温度本身并不安全,但我们认为戴尔没有借口。Eurocom Sky X7C拥有相同的Core i9 CPU,但在进行相同的压力测试时最高只有84℃,而且没有降频。如果蓝天可以做到这一点,那么戴尔也没有理由不能这样做。

下一个缺点是我们没有预料到的。那就是屏幕对比度不如去年的Alienware 17 R5或MSI GT75那么深。这可能是性能最强的游戏笔记本电脑之一,但它并没有最好的显示效果。

虽然显而易见,但这些缺点并没有阻止Area-51m成为Alienware 17系列的大跃进。如果戴尔继续使用台式机CPU和DGFF,那么我们希望在未来的版本中能够看到更安静的风扇噪音和更低的温度。

以最好的方式小题大做。与Eurocom Sky X7C相比,在核心温度和风扇噪音方面肯定有改进的余地。但作为Alienware 17的继承者,它可以让笔记本成为强大的台式机的替代品。
