外星人m17 (i9-8950HK, RTX 2080 Max-Q, 4K UHD) 笔记本电脑评测

Alienware 17轻薄版 23%更薄,37%更小,40%更轻。 Alienware m1解决了Alienware 17系列的所有尺寸和重量问题,但仍然缺少一些辅助功能,如背光触控板,单键RGB照明,和更多的接口。

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 60 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
35.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19.6 ms rise
↘ 16 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. » 30 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (39.2 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: 50 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18099 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

戴尔巧妙地将其Alienware 17系列分为两个截然不同的版本:Alienware m17和Alienware Area-51m。虽然较薄的m17与原来的17系列相比已没有什么相同点,但较大且满血的Area-51m接过了交接棒。曾经笨重的17英寸Alienware系列现在可以吸引喜欢更薄的笔记本电脑的游戏玩家,以及希望从轻薄外形中获得尽可能多的性能的游戏玩家。

因为m17本质上是一个“Alienware 17轻薄版”,但是原版系列的粉丝们会为这样一个事实感到遗憾:它以更薄更轻的名义牺牲了一些经典的Alienware功能。它仍然没有MSI,华硕或宏基的最新型号那样轻薄,因此m17更像是超薄和厚重之间的中间解决方案。另一方面,额外的周长使得m17底盘比其许多超薄替代品更加坚固,尤其是特别A面。

我们最大的抱怨与核心温度,风扇噪音和键盘有关。即使风扇在最大声的情况下运行也能达到98摄氏度的核心温度,对于许多人来说游戏会很难运行。同时,软键反馈更适合于薄型超极本,而不是像m17这样的发烧级游戏笔记本电脑。 MSI和Clevo笔记本电脑上的SteelSeries键盘提供更坚实的关键反馈,以获得更紧凑的游戏体验。 Area-51m和旧版Alienware 17上的斜面键盘布局也让游戏感觉更好。

与Alienware 17相比,Alienware m17显着减轻了重量和尺寸。然而,缺点是显而易见的,包括省略了许多硬件功能以及换成Max-Q GPU。幸运的是,想要更经典的Alienware体验的用户可以选择Area-51m,而其他用户会更喜欢m17
