[Bestbuy618 Notebook Channel]With the release of numerous 3A masterpieces and large online games, many gamers have been forced to upgrade their PC products in order to improve their gaming experience. With the birth and development of this market segment, the appearance and design of gaming notebooks are improving, as is the hardware performance. When compared to traditional notebook products, its strong performance can not only meet daily work use, but also take into account more game entertainment scenarios, and when compared to desktop products, it has a certain degree of portability, and more and more gamers are beginning to choose to buy game book products.
This time, we chose six popular game books for a non-differential horizontal review. What is the difference? Simply put, the hardware configuration of these gaming notebooks is not identical, but our test items are.
MSI GL63 9SD, Raytheon 5th generation 911, Mechanic T58-V Apocalypse, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade, Mykong S17r Xuanzang take pro these five products in the core configuration are used in the ninth generation Core i7-9750H GTX1660Ti combination, while the Asus Flying Fortress 7 is used Ryzen 7 3750H RTX2060 combination. At the same time, because it is a gaming notebook, the emphasis is on the word “game,” so we will not run scores in this review, but will instead test the actual performance of these products in the gaming experience.
As a result, we chose six popular large games on the market, covering a variety of types and relatively high hardware requirements, to test these products. Introduction of the six game books For this test, we chose MSI GL63 9SD, Raytheon fifth generation 911, Asus Flying Fortress 7, the mechanic T58-V Apocalypse, Acer Shadow Knight light blade, my air S17r Xuanzang take pro, and other six game books for testing. To begin, we will look at some of the parameters of these six products and briefly understand them.
* The above prices are real-time reference prices, for the actual price please check the official website or major e-commerce platform MSI GL63 9SD MSI GL series as the most cost-effective series of MSI gaming notebook products has been loved by many players. The MSI GL63 9SD retains the design of last year’s appearance, with the A-side of the Red Dragon Logo remaining prominent, equipped with a 15.6-inch IPS screen, because the current design of the narrow bezel screen is not used, so the size of the body is larger than the narrow bezel design products or to be larger than a circle. In addition, the MSI GL63 9SD is equipped with a new Intel Core i7-9750H processor and “sweet” GTX Furthermore, the MSI GL63 9SD is outfitted with a new Cooler Boost 5 cooling module design with dual fans and 7 heat pipes to ensure the product’s heat dissipation, allowing the hardware to fully utilize its powerful performance.
Raytheon 911 series products have always had a strong presence in the gaming notebook market, and the fifth generation of 911 products introduced this year is even more distinctive. To begin with, it retains the Star Flyer family design concept in terms of appearance. The A-side is made of 1mm thick 5-series aluminum alloy metal, and the overall shape is more avant-garde and sci-fi, with the newborn blue logo light and streamline decorative strips, fully displaying the design ideas of the new generation of gaming notebooks. Of course, its biggest highlight is the creation of a new game book screen size, it is equipped with a 16.6-inch 144Hz narrow bezel gaming screen, the field of view is more open, compared to the traditional 60Hz screen in the FPS class games have a more excellent experience, and in the body size than 15.6-inch products also did not significantly increase.
Asus Flying Fortress 7 maintains the previous simple classic design, with the A-side of the body receiving a class metal diagonal brushed treatment, with the red circuit texture providing a majestic and dominant visual perception, and in the touch providing a smooth and delicate feeling. The ASUS Flying Fortress 7 is designed with narrow bezels, the left and right bezels are 6.5mm, with a 15.6-inch 120Hz refresh rate IPS screen, providing a very good view, 120Hz refresh rate screen compared to 60Hz for gamers also provides a better competitive gaming experience.
The Mechanic T58-V Apocalypse’s A-side is brushed with galaxy rays in both directions, with a star-ribbed blue light band and 3D plated Mechanical Heart Logo, making it very recognizable, and it has an excellent feel thanks to the IMR lamination process. It has a 15.6-inch 6mm micro-bezel IPS optical view screen with a very good display effect, as well as a new 9th generation Core i7-9750H processor and GTX1660Ti discrete graphics, complemented by 8GB DDR4 2666MHz high-speed memory and 512GB NVMe SSD.
The Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade is also known by its name, which emphasizes thin and light, and it is one of the thinnest and lightest weights in this review. The Acer Shadow Knight Light is a highlight of the Acer Shadow Knight Light, the A-side of the metal with oblique brushed texture will have a unique mysterious feeling when the light shines through, and touch the cold feeling of metal, and the choice of metal increases the machine’s hardness and strength, while the thickness of its body is also the thinnest of the six participating gaming notebooks. The Acer Shadow Knight is equipped with a 15.6-inch narrow bezel Full HD IPS screen, with a bezel of only 5.4mm on both sides, and supports 72 percent NTSC color gamut, which has a very good display effect and viewing angle.
In terms of hardware, the Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade we received is equipped with a combination of Intel Core i7-9750H GTX1660Ti, complemented by 8GB DDR4 2666MHz high-speed memory and 512 This product’s origin can be found above. The S17r Xuanzang’s A-side takes the pro in a very recognizable design, it uses the starburst red, bright but not harsh color, with 2 oblique decorative lines and dotted decorative strips, the entire A-side top cover is extremely high value, pleasing to the eye, without losing simplicity and atmosphere It has a large 17.3-inch 144Hz narrow bezel IPS screen with 72 percent NTSC color gamut, which is enough to meet the visual needs of most gamers for gaming. The S17r Xuanzang is equipped with Intel’s 9th generation Core i7-9750H processor GTX1660Ti, 8G*2 dual-channel DDR4 2666MHz memory, and a 1TB mechanical hard drive in addition to a 256GB NVMe SSD for storage.
These six games have been very popular in the market over the last two years, and they have high hardware performance requirements for PC products. “Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” “Extreme Racing Horizon 4,” and “Total War: Three Kingdoms” are built-in performance test options, so we’ll use their own program for testing. Furthermore, the three games that do not have the performance test use Fraps to record frame rate performance while the game is running.
All six gaming notebooks were tested in the highest performance mode, so let’s take a look at how they performed in each of the six games. Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider The first is “Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider”, it is an action-adventure game produced by Eidos Montreal studio, this will be the third and final chapter of the reboot “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” series, the rating of We chose the highest, medium, and lowest quality game books for testing, and the results of the six game books are as follows.
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s highest graphics quality, MSI GL63 9SD had an average frame rate of 71, Raytheon 5th generation 911 had an average frame rate of 69, Asus Flying Fortress 7 had an average frame rate of 60, Mechanic T58-V had an average frame rate of 62, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade had an average frame rate of 62, and Mykong S17r Xuanzang had an average frame rate of 68 To confirm this, I found a memory stick of the same 8GB 2666MHz added to the Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade again for a test, and the results are as follows: From the results, it is clear that the dual-channel memory has a very significant increase in the game frame rate of Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The frame rate from the highest quality of dual-channel memory and the frame rate from the medium quality of single-channel memory are nearly identical, indicating a whole grade of improvement in image quality. Of course, subsequent tests of other games have a certain improvement. Extreme Racing Horizons 4 This is a very good racing game, we can experience in the game that real “speed and passion” feeling, but I think this game with the keyboard to play the experience is more general, if there is vibration feedback handle or even steering wheel and other simulator equipment will be more enjoyable.
The six game book test results are as follows: MSI GL63 9SD had an average frame rate of 92, Raytheon 5th generation 911 had an average frame rate of 98, Asus Flying Fortress 7 had an average frame rate of 64, Mechanic T58-V had an average frame rate of 79, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade had an average frame rate of 81, and Go Air S17r Genzou had an average frame rate of 88 under the ultra-high picture quality
MSI GL63 9SD had an average frame rate of 125, Raytheon 5th generation 911 had an average frame rate of 130, Asus Flying Fortress 7 had an average frame rate of 85, Mechanic T58-V had an average frame rate of 91, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade had an average frame rate of 91, and Mykong S17r Genzou had an average frame rate of 123 in the medium quality of “Extreme Racing Horizon 4.” Similarly, the three models with 16GB of dual-channel memory outperform the two models with 8GB of single-channel memory. Total War: Three Kingdoms The third game is “Total War: Three Kingdoms,” recently there are a lot of friends around to play this game, as the latest work of the Total War series, this is also a real-time strategy game with the background of the Three Kingdoms that we like very much, but I still can’t play this game even after testing for so long. To test the three cases, we chose very high quality (the largest troop size), higher quality (more troop size), and lower quality (smaller troop size).
The test results are as follows: the average frame rate of Total War: Three Kingdoms on MSI GL63 9SD at very high picture quality (largest troop size) was 45, the average frame rate of Raytheon 5th Generation 911 was 44, the average frame rate of ASUS Flying Fortress 7 was 40, the average frame rate of Mechanic T58-V was 42, the average frame rate of Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade was 42, and the average frame rate of Mykong S17r The three Intel processor products with dual-channel memory perform slightly better across the board in all image quality, particularly in the lower image quality, where the frame rate increase is very noticeable. Of course, the other three can also guarantee a good frame rate as well as the highest quality.
The fourth game is “survival of the Jedi,” a tactical competitive shooting sandbox game developed by Blue Hole, which also created the “chicken” game mode, which is popular among many users. In comparison to traditional shooting games, “Jedi Survival” necessitates not only the mastery of shooting skills, but also the development of various tactics based on various environmental conditions, in order to survive until the end of the game and achieve victory. Although it is an online game, the hardware configuration requirements are also very high; this time we chose ultra-high quality, high quality, and very low quality for testing; the test results of the six game books are as follows: MSI GL63 9SD had an average frame rate of 87, Raytheon 5th generation 911 had an average frame rate of 93, Asus Flying Fortress 7 had an average frame rate of 65, Mechanic T58-V had an average frame rate of 89, Acer The most popular option is the AMD Ryzen5 3750.
The AMD Ryzen5 3750H RTX2060 combination can also basically ensure that the game in more than 60 frames, but slightly worse performance when compared to the Core processor-equipped products. Battlefield 5 The fifth game is “Battlefield 5”, a first-person shooter released by EA at the end of last year, as the proper sequel to “Battlefield”, the game mainly revolves around the story of World War II.
As a war-themed game, “Battlefield 5″ game graphics are excellent, the game details are also very in place, in the game can also fully experience the kind of war caused by tension and oppressive feeling The average frame rate of the MSI GL63 9SD was 85, Raytheon 5th generation 911 was 84, Asus Flying Fortress 7 was 71, Mechanic T58-V was 75, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade was 72, and Mykong S17r Xuanzang took the pro’s average frame rate of 84 in Battlefield 5 Ultra High Picture Quality.
Battlefield 5″ in high quality, MSI GL63 9SD’s average frame rate was 120, Raytheon 5th generation 911’s average frame rate was 115, Asus Flying Fortress 7’s average frame rate was 85, Mechanic T58-V’s average frame rate was 84, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade’s average frame rate was 79, and Mykong S17r Xuanzang took pro’s average frame rate was 109. This is a typical wasteland-style game; it employs excellent technical prowess and a wide range of details to create a realistic and terrifying wasteland, and the sense of fear is multi-dimensional. The exterior graphics and sound effects of the game provide the foundation; the scarcity of supplies and ammunition, as well as the possibility of mutant monsters at any time, provide enough pressure to survive, and the detailed design reinforces the sense of immersion. However, because it is a test, I only chose the very high quality, high quality, and low quality three quality to experience, and the test results are as follows: Metro: Departure” very high picture quality, MSI GL63 9SD average frame rate of 72, Raytheon fifth generation 911 average frame rate of 68, Asus Flying Fortress 7 average frame rate of 63, mechanic T58-V average frame rate of 70, Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade average frame rate of 61,
As you can see from the test data of the six games in the table above, thanks to the dual-channel high-speed memory, the Raytheon 5th generation 911, MSI GL63 9SD, and Myspace S17r Xuanzang take the pro three products perform better, and the average frame rate in each game is higher, and the Raytheon 5th generation 911 and Myspace S17r Xuanzang take the pro three products perform better, and the average frame rate in each game is higher They also have a 17.3-inch large screen and a 144Hz high screen refresh rate, which allows them to provide a more excellent gaming experience. However, in the face of “Total War: Three Kingdoms” the game’s very high quality, the highest troop size can still not reach an average of 60 frames running, but the game is still very eat configuration. The T58-V and Acer Shadow Knight light blade perform slightly worse, but in addition to “Total War: Three Kingdoms'” very high quality, other games can also maintain an average of 60 fps or more performance.
Overall, the Core i7-9750H GTX1660Ti hardware combination is sufficient to handle most of the large games on the market at 1080P resolution, while the dual-channel memory can also be very effective in improving the game book’s frame rate performance. Of course, if the game is too poorly optimized, there is nothing you can do. The Flying Fortress 7 with AMD Ryzen 7 3750H RTX2060 combination performed poorly in the six games, particularly in “Extreme Racing Horizon 4” and “Jedi Survival,” where frame rate performance lagged significantly behind the other products.
The results of this test also show that many games, in addition to testing the product’s graphics card, have high requirements for CPU performance, and when the CPU performance is insufficient, it will drag down the overall gaming experience. Extreme heat dissipation test In addition to the six games to test the game book, we will also test the six products in the extreme state of heat dissipation through a long time of baking to ensure that their system Before that, let’s take a look at how they’re cooled: the MSI GL63 9SD uses MSI’s new Cooler Boost 5 cooling module design, which includes high-end dual fans, 7 heat pipes, and a 4-way cooling airflow design to dissipate heat more quickly, allowing the CPU and GPU to perform at their best. The chassis also includes a 2.5-inch hard drive bay and an NVMe solid state bay for expansion.
For cooling, the Raytheon 5th generation 911 employs a dual fan, three copper pipes, and three air vents, with a single 10mm copper pipe in the CPU area for greater cooling area and higher cooling efficiency. The ASUS Flying Fortress 7 uses ASUS’ exclusive Glacier cooling architecture, with a trapezoidal cutting process on the A-shell body to eliminate air vents from being blocked, a four-copper dual fan design to ensure heat dissipation, and a dust-removal fan with a dust removal channel design to effectively prevent micro-dust interference and blockade.
The system also includes an intelligent storm booster cooling system that can be activated with a single click for the strongest winds. Inside the chassis, there is also a 2.5-inch hard drive bay for expansion.
The CPU fan is covered with a pure copper cover that is integrated with the copper tubes, and the graphics card part is covered with a 3D matrix floating point even heat plate, which has improved the overall cooling effect to some extent. The Acer Shadow Knight has a 2.5-inch hard drive bay as well as an NVMe solid state location for full expansion, as well as a dual-fan, three-pass tube and three air vents, with the CPU and GPU sharing two of the copper tubes for heat conduction and a narrower copper tube for CPU cooling only. The S17r Xuanzang also has an NVMe SSD bit with RAID 0 support and another 2.5-inch HDD bit for expansion, as well as a three-fan, five-copper tube integrated cooling design with a new generation of metal fans with more blades and a thinner volume, which has a larger airflow, and an optimized air duct design with three air outlets, which can quickly dissipate the heat inside the chassis.
The interior of the chassis is relatively small, with one NVMe SSD bit and one 2.5-inch hard drive bit in addition to the already occupied one NVMe SSD bit for expansion. Furthermore, my air S17r Xuanzang take pro disassembly is a little more complicated than several other models, first to remove the screws on the D side, the keyboard will be removed after unscrewing a few screws before disassembly.
Next, we used AIDA64 to test the system stability of these six notebooks to test their cooling performance under full CPU and GPU load. The GoKong S17r Xuanzang take pro in the three fans five copper tube cooling configuration also has a relatively outstanding performance, with the CPU averaging 89 °C and the graphics card 77 °C.
The thinnest of the six, the Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade, performed admirably in terms of heat dissipation, particularly the graphics card, which was only 77 degrees Celsius. In the two-hour-long full-load test, the six notebooks did not appear to die and blue screen phenomenon, system stability are no problem, so for players to continue to carry out large 3D games, these models are also completely top. Buying Advice and Summary Because this test is primarily for the game, we also give you some purchase advice from the perspective of the game experience at the end of this article.
According to the test results, the selected products can basically ensure the smooth operation of the six large games at the highest quality, including “Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” “Metro: Departure,” and “Total War: Three Kingdoms.” The hardware configuration requirements for the three games at the highest quality will be relatively higher. Especially in “Total War: Three Kingdoms,” the game’s six hardware configurations are unable to meet the game’s very high quality the highest troop size to reach 60 frames this smooth and pass line, so for the pursuit of the ultimate players must choose a higher configuration of the game book. Furthermore, as can be seen from the test results, dual-channel memory for game frame rate improvement is indeed more obvious; using dual-channel memory under the highest quality of the game frame rate can reach the non-dual-channel frame rate level of the lower two levels of quality, which has a significant improvement for the overall gaming experience of players.
And if you only play “League of Legends” and other games, the current market 5-6,000 products will be able to meet your needs. Then we talk about the six products in this test, from the official reference price, MSI GL63 9SD, Thor fifth generation 911, mechanic T58-V apocalypse, Acer Shadow Knight light blade four products are relatively close in price, they also use the Core i7-9750H GTX1660Ti combination, where MSI If you don’t care about the design and want to pursue better heat dissipation, and you’re not a fan of FPS games, it’s a good idea to choose MSI’s GL63 9SD, which is currently priced at $8,399 on the e-commerce platform and is worth getting. And if you like a slimmer design and metal body, then Acer Shadow Knight Light Blade is more suitable for you, and after adding on an 8GB of memory, its game The mechanic T58-V Apocalypse has a better light effect, and after increasing the memory, it has a better game performance.
The current official mall special price is only 7299 yuan, which is a very high cost performance compared to the terminal price.
The AMD Ryzen 7 3750H RTX2060 Flying Fortress 7 combination is not very impressive in terms of gaming performance, but it can basically cope with most large games in high quality, and the appropriate lower quality can also have a better experience, and it also has a 120Hz refresh rate, so playing some FPS games will be more advantageous. The RTX2060 graphics card also supports real-time ray tracing and DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), which the GTX1660Ti does not. The former can add more reflected, refracted, and shadowed light to our game; DLSS uses AI algorithms to increase the resolution of the video output to improve image quality.
The DLSS technology identifies jagged edges and performs high-quality anti-aliasing after identifying the best color for each pixel, then chooses the right color to provide smoother edges and higher The DLSS technology identifies jagged edges and performs high-quality anti-aliasing after identifying the best color for each pixel, then chooses the right color to provide smoother edges and higher The current price of this Flying Fortress 7 is only 7499 yuan, which is still very affordable. The last one is the S17r Xuanzang, the largest screen in this cross-test, although the screen is very large, but its body thickness of 19.9mm control is very good, its game performance is also very good, and there is a 17.3-inch 144Hz narrow bezel screen, play games when the visual experience is very good, and there is a 17.3-inch The current price of 8888 yuan after discount, while in the brand name may be worse, but in the same hardware configuration and size of the product has a very good price advantage, can be said to be very good value for gamers who like large screens.
