Aftershock Vapor 15X / Eluktronics MAX 15 10th Gen Review
, Se conoce como el MAX 15 from Eluktronics in the US and sold here in Australia as the Vapor 15X from Aftershock.. Puede personalizarlo al realizar el pedido y comprobar los precios actualizados con los enlaces de la descripción.. The build quality feels nice, its got a silver magnesium alloy finish on both the lid and interior and no sharp corners or edges.. The weight is listed at 1.7kg and mine was around this or 3.9lb, then 2.6kg or 5.8lb, with the 230w power brick and cables. Está en el lado más pequeño para un 15 gaming laptop with these specs coming in under 2cm thick., Tiene un 15.6 1080p 240Hz display. No G, Sync or FreeSync though. Theres an option in the BIOS to enable or disable optimus, Aunque, and this will give a performance boost in games. Ive, measured the average grey to grey response time at 4.6ms theres a link in the description. Si necesita una explicación sobre estos números. Its one of the best response times out of the laptops that Ive tested and only just below the 4.16ms needed for a 240Hz screen. He probado la pantalla con el Spyder 5 y se 98 de sRGB 71 de NTSC 76 adobeRGB y 76 of DCI P3 decent results for a gaming laptop.. My panel was right on 300 nits en 100 brillo con un 5201 relación de contraste. Por lo tanto, although quite low for the contrast I cant say I noticed it and brightness was average., Backlight bleed was minor.
Nunca me di cuenta al ver contenido más oscuro, pero esto variará entre los paneles. Hay, a 720p camera below the display in the middle and its got IR for Windows. Hola, Aunque, you have to tilt the screen back, so it can see you to unlock. As the camera is down the bottom, your fingers do kind of get in the way a bit while typing and youve got to push the screen back to actually get yourself in Frame. Heres what it sounds like when we set the fan to full speed, so its not doing a great job of isolating my voice over the fans.. El teclado tiene 4 zonas de retroiluminación RGB, which lights up all keys and secondary functions. Hay 4 niveles de brillo clave, which can be controlled using the keyboard, shortcuts or software.. Me gustaba escribir con el teclado. It felt nice and tactile heres how it sounds to give you an idea of what to expect. La precisión del vidrio. Touchpad is smooth and worked alright, but Im testing the larger 17 al mismo tiempo, and that one just feels much better.. It does a decent job of hiding fingerprints and dirt as its not matte black and the smooth surface makes cleaning easy with a microfiber cloth.. La distribución del peso se sintió bien, allowing for one finger opening and the screen goes a fair way. Atrás. Keyboard flex was only minor when pushing down hard. Se siente bastante sólido. There was some flex to the lid, but it is on the thinner side.
It felt sturdy enough. A la izquierda. Weve got a Kensington lock slot up the back air exhaust vent, USB 3.1 Tipo Gen2, A port and separate 3.5mm microphone and headphone jacks.. The right has a MicroSD card slot two USB 3.1 Tipo Gen1, Un puerto y una salida de escape de aire.. The rest is on the back from left to right, Hay, a USB Type C port with DisplayPort output and Thunderbolt 3 Apoyo, HDMI 2.0 Salida, gigabit ethernet and the power input.. The front has a little groove in the middle to aid. Opening the lid, as well as an RGB light bar, which can be customized through software with the keyboard. Both display outputs, connect directly to the Nvidia graphics, but Type C, cannot be used to charge. El portátil. Underneath has plenty of air vents towards the back half of the machine and the rubber feet do a good job of preventing sliding on my desk., Its easy to get inside just take out 11 Tornillos de cabeza Phillips, and the panel basically comes right. De. Inside weve got the battery down the front two M.2 slots above it on the left, dos ranuras de memoria en el medio y WiFi 6 card to the right of that. Plenty of shared heatpipes and VRM coverage up the back for cooling.. The two speakers are on the left and right sides towards the front.. They sound about average, not too clear. At max volume there was a little bass, but also some vibration or distortion at max, and the latencymon results.
Werent too bad. Su impulsado por un 4 Cell 62Wh battery. Ive tested it with RGB lighting off background apps, discapacitado y la pantalla en 50 brillo. La duración de la batería no era genial, pretty bad, given the size compared to others.. This is something Ive seen with other Tongfang laptops prior to BIOS updates. So I would expect this to improve over time. Vamos a echar un vistazo a las térmicas a continuación. The control center software lets you change between three different performance modes, que, de menor a mayor, son el modo de oficina, game mode and beast mode. Office mode. Lets you pick different fan profiles or set a custom fan curve and also toggle ECO mode. Game and beast modes. Also give you the option to enable fan boost to max out the fans.. None of these modes applied any GPU overclocking. Por defecto. Undervolting is allowed through the BIOS, and you can also undervolt through BIOS.. The idle temperatures were fine with a 21 grado Celsius, pruebas de esfuerzo de la habitación se realizaron con la prueba de esfuerzo de la CPU Aida64, con estrés, CPU sólo marcada y la carrera de referencia de GPU Heaven. Al mismo tiempo, while gaming was tested playing Watch Dogs 2., I might have gone a bit overboard on the testing. Aquí. Basically office mode seems to limit the CPU to an 80 Grado. Thermal throttle, cap game mode increases this to 85 and then beast mode boosts this to 90 Grados.. This means its not possible for the CPU to rise above 90 grados Celsius, que creo que es bueno, even if it means some thermal throttling personally Id prefer it to not get hotter, but thats me.
. La GPU estaba limitando térmicamente en 86 in the game, with beast mode enabled, though this was only removed with the cooling pad.. Estas son las velocidades de reloj para las mismas pruebas, acaba de mostrar. Hay, not that big of a difference in beast mode with the game running with the cooling pad, so the GPU thermal throttle must have been small.. Gpu speeds were only really lower in office mode.. I also didnt see much difference with or without ECO mode, enabled more on that soon. CPU speeds rise in game mode, because the thermal throttle cap increases then again in beast mode for the same reason. Setting the fan to max speed, didnt change anything because it was Already running at full speed under both of these tests., The undervolt almost gets us 300Mhz extra clock speed. Then the cooling pad helped out more as again. Thermals are the limit to more performance.. I dont think this is too bad when we remember that this has an 8 núcleo de Intel, processor and 115 Vatio, STy 2060 graphics in a 15 inch chassis, Es decir, thinner and lighter than most other laptops. Ive covered. Youve also got the option of upgrading to better thermal paste when ordering and realistically more than 4GHz over 8 cores for an Intel based laptop is a good result.. el 2060 had no problems running at its 115 límite de vatios, regardless of the performance mode in use.. We can see that office mode, regardless of whether or not ECO was ticked, seems to cap at 25 Vatios.
De lo contrario, the CPU power is limited by the thermal throttle limits for each mode. With good cooling, though its possible to surpass a 55 vatios TDP, que creo que es bueno. As other laptops will cap this arbitrarily to 45 Vatios, as per Intel spec leaving performance on the table for lower temperatures. Heres, how CPU only performance looks in Cinebench with the GPU now idle. ECO mode is actually making a difference. Ahora, como vimos anteriormente, it didnt seem to do much in CPU, plus GPU workloads like gaming.. I found game mode and beast mode similar in terms of CPU performance, so it looks like the only difference may be. The thermal throttle limits of the processor, as noted earlier., When we compare the best result against others, its doing very well for a 10875H laptop, the best single core result Ive seen anyway and ahead of all the Ryzen laptops, though the multicore performance is being beaten by Those 8 core 4800H machines above it., The middle of the keyboard, was warmer when idling compared to most laptops Ive tested, but it was hardly warm to the touch.. It starts approaching hot in the middle, with the stress tests running in the same lowest office mode. Its not too different in game mode, still quite uncomfortable in the middle and up the back., Its the same deal with the highest beast mode, but the left and right Sides are much cooler, comparatively no problems playing a game and resting on WASD.
Vamos a escuchar a los fans.. Los ventiladores todavía eran audibles en el ocioso, entonces, cuando está bajo carga, I found no difference to fan volume, whether in game mode, beast mode or enabling fan boost. So it was always at max regardless during these tests. Now lets check out how well the Vapor 15x performs in games and see how it compares with other laptops. He probado, Campo de batalla 5 en el modo campaña en los ajustes ultra, and the 15x is highlighted in red. Es justo 1 FPS ahead of the only other 115 Vatio, 2060 Ive tested in the MSI GL65, which is just below it, Aunque. el 1 low is almost 9 Superior, presumably due to the better processor and theres, not that much of a gain to be had from the 2070 machines above it.. Estos son los resultados de Far Cry 5 con ajustes ultra en el punto de referencia incorporado.. This test depends more on the processor, which is probably why its now ahead of the more powerful 2070 in the Dell G7 just below it. Sombra de Tomb Raider, was also tested with the games benchmark tool with the highest setting preset., The average frame rate was The same as the 115 Vatio 2060 in the GL65 in this more GPU heavy test, just a few frames behind a 2070. Ive said it before and Ill say it again after the 2060, you really start getting into diminishing returns for the amount of money youre spending.. Ahora, para las herramientas de benchmarking, He probado, Heaven Valley y Superposición de Unigine, así como Firestrike Timespy y Port Royal de 3DMark sólo pausa.
El video, si desea una mirada detallada a estos resultados. Ive, utilizó Adobe Premiere para exportar una de las revisiones de mi portátil. Vídeos en 4K., Lower times are better here, and the 15X is similar to other RTX 2060 ordenadores portátiles, Probado., También he probado Premiere, pero con el benchmark de sistemas Puget, which also accounts for things like live playback and the 15X is doing quite well, Aunque, there are some Ryzen Options with lower powered GPUs that do better. Los resultados fueron similares en Adobe Photoshop. Esto tiende a ser más una prueba centrada en la CPU. Sin embargo, its one of the lower results from a 10875H laptop.. I thought it would do better due to the higher power limits. DaVinci Resolve es más pesado en GPU, though its basically the same as the 65 watt Max Q 2060 in the ASUS G14, justo encima de ella. También he probado SPECviewperf, que pone a prueba varias cargas de trabajo 3D profesionales. Ive Used Crystal disk mark to test the 1TB, NVMe, M.2, SSD and both reads and writes, were great though this will vary based on drive selection when ordering. The microSD card slot was also doing. Ok and the card sticks out a little when inserted. For updated prices check. The links in the description as prices will change over time and you can customize when ordering, which will affect the total. At the time of recording the Vapor 15X starts from 2160 AUD, pero se puede obtener 50 off with code JARRODSTECH.. This config just has one stick of memory.
I definitely recommend upgrading to dual channel for the performance boost. En los EE.UU.. They dont seem to offer the 115 Vatio 2060 option instead opting for 2070 2070 Super or 2080 Super Max Q.. Por lo tanto, para concluir, the Vapor 15x offers great gaming performance due to the higher wattage, 2060 gráficos y 8 procesador de núcleo, especially for the size and weight of the machine.. If youre after a good mixture of portability and power, then this one is worth considering. As a result of that combination. It can get hot to the touch in the middle, but the WASD area and sides were cool.. The internals are capped to different thermal throttle limits based on the mode in use, which I think is a good way to prevent it getting hotter, and you can get further improvements with some undervolting or a cooling pad. CPU performance was great, especially for single core, though Multicore was still behind cheaper Ryzen options, but thats just the current state of Intel 10th gen mobile processors when it comes to rendering workloads like this.. The screen was great for gaming 240Hz with low response time, good colour gamut for some content creation, brightness was average, but contrast was low, at least when I measured it. I cant say I noticed it myself when using it.. The main issue I had was with the battery life, but Ive found similar problems with tongfang laptops in the past prior to BIOS updates, so that will probably improve over time based on the size of the battery.
