联想ThinkPad T490笔记本电脑评测:WQHD HDR面板在测试中表现出色,但在办公笔记本中意义有限

像素更高,续航更差。 像之前的ThinkPad X1 Extreme一样,14英寸的ThinkPad T490也有了具有100%AdobeRGB色彩空间覆盖率的高分辨率WQHD面板。 出色的图像质量带来了亮面屏和增加的功耗。

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
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 ms rise
↘ 12.4 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. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
51.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 24.4 ms rise
↘ 26.8 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 85 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.8 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17699 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Verdict – The WQHD panel is just not quite suitable for the T490

亮面WQHD面板在ThinkPad T490中并没有真正说服我们。一方面,图像质量非常好,并且那些需要在笔记本电脑屏幕具有尽可能高的色彩空间覆盖范围的人可以毫不犹豫地抓住它。去年,我们的看法可能会更加乐观,但是对于新的1080p选项,联想已经提供了非常出色和明亮的面板,而且是雾面屏,需要的功率更少,我们认为总体而言,它更适合于移动商务设备(如ThinkPad T490)。

虽然WQHD面板可提供出色的图像质量,但它太反光,并大大减少了续航时间。那些可以接受较差sRGB色彩的人应该选择新的低功耗1080p面板。

除此之外,我们在详细介绍带有Core i7和GeForce MX250的ThinkPad T490时已经指出的所有其他的优点和缺点。
