Kaby Lake Notebook Ultrabook Windows

轻盈而且昂贵。 新款 Notebook 9 配备有令人印象深刻的高亮度屏幕但同时也相当脆弱。弱不考虑柔软的外壳,那么它可以说是一台有着高可便携性及可靠度的笔记本。

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
32.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.6 ms rise
↘ 14.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 83 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (26.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 20.4 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. » 47 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to 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 208.3 Hz99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 208.3 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 208.3 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: Samsung Notebook 9 Always NP900X5N-X01US
In review: Samsung Notebook 9 Always NP900X5N-X01US

Notebook 9 NP900X5N 在很多方面表现得很出色,但也在一些关键部分失去了一些分数。我们赞扬厂商能够在极度轻盈的机身当中提供可选独立显卡的同时搭载一块如此高亮度的1080P屏幕。如果亮度,便携度,寿命,Thundebolt 接口,以及GeForce显卡是优先被考虑的因素的话,那么 Notebook 9 是一个很简单的选择,特别是对于那些不在乎触摸屏或是认为14寸屏幕过小无法满足生产力需求的用户来说。

三星在机身强度方面做得远远谈不上完美,只能说是平均水平,特别是在屏幕配置方面奇怪的选择。的确窄边框很讨人喜欢,但它比其他竞品来说都太过柔软了。很奇怪的是镜面屏幕是标配但却没有常见的大猩猩玻璃保护或者是触摸屏的选项。在几乎所有亮度上都可以发现的PWM可能是另一个让部分用户考虑是否购买的因素。

再者,我们对于 GeForce 940MX 显卡仅配备 DDR3显存而不是更好的GDDR5显存感到失望,毕竟940MX已经是即将被淘汰的型号了。英伟达很快就会发布用于轻薄笨的 GeForce MX150 ,它将使得 940MX 系列被彻底淘汰。

最后,测试机的配置型号要价高达1400美元。如果用户能够避免损坏脆弱的转轴,那么它的优点依旧是能够超过其缺点的。

新款 Notebook 9 由于其的15英寸屏幕而出众,其所占面积在14英寸及15.6英寸笔记本之间。它的便携性令人惊讶,而且使用起来十分舒适,特别是对于那些长期出行的用户来说,但外壳能够通过加强而得到改善。
