Coffee Lake Gaming Geforce Laptop / Notebook Windows

令人怀疑的低调。 凭借其酷睿i5-9300H处理器和GeForce GTX 1660 Ti显卡,联想的中端游戏笔记本电脑能够在其17.3英寸哑光屏幕(144 Hz,FHD,IPS)上流畅地运行所有当前的PC游戏。 维护舱口使用户可以轻松地更换RAM和存储。 可以通过BIOS启用默认情况下禁用的iGPU,以延长电池续航。

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
12.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 14 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
18 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 9.6 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. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (39.4 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 9338 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

联想利用Legion Y540-17IRH提供了中端的17.3英寸游戏笔记本电脑。 Core i5-9300H CPU和GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU的组合不仅能够流畅运行现代游戏。在大多数游戏中,更可以选择Full HD分辨率和高至最高设置。该处理器特别令人印象深刻,因为它可以一直维持其完整的Turbo Boost。

由于安装了NVMe SSD,因此系统运行流畅。但是,由于其PCI Express x2接口,它不是最快的型号之一。由于笔记本电脑具有易于使用的维护舱口,因此将SSD更换为更快的型号是没有问题的。此外,用户可以选择安装额外的2.5英寸驱动器。

方便:只需单击一下即可启用和禁用集成GPU。

144 Hz IPS屏幕因其响应时间短,视角宽,对比度好和色彩表现出色而在我们的测试中发光。尽管显示器的亮度仍然不错,但考虑到笔记本电脑的价格,它还不够好。 Chiclet键盘非常适合日常使用。良好:键盘背光,尽管没有RGB照明。端口选择相当大。但是,很遗憾没有Thunderbolt 3端口。

电池续航时间并不是什么特别的。但是,可以通过启用更经济的集成GPU来大幅增加它。这可以通过联想预先安装的Vantage软件或BIOS来完成。在我们的Wi-Fi测试中,我们可以将运行时间从3:40小时增加到5:22小时。
