Gaming to the Max! Medion has put a well-equipped gaming notebook at a fair price on the market: the Erazer X6811. The Intel Core i7 740QM and Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M look very promising on paper, but can this 15" bad boy bring home the bacon?

Medion has launched the ERAZER X6811, a 15.6 inch with high end components, for those looking for gaming without compromise: core i7 processor, powerful NVIDIA graphics card and 1 TB of storage space. The ERAZER X6811 offers high-end performance designed for gamers. The poor finish may well put some users off however.

In keeping to a budget though, Medion has had to make some sacrifices - although these are mainly cosmetic. Serious PC gaming fans might be a bit disappointed by the rather tame chassis of the X6811 (the game lights feel like a bit of an afterthought) and the keyboard has quite a cheap feel to it. The battery life isn't great either - and the power pack required to mains power this laptop is hefty to say the least (although this isn't an exclusive issue when it comes to big-hardware laptops).These are minor quibbles, however, and are more than acceptable when you consider just how much money you'll be saving compared to similar spec'd machines (that do look and feel quite a bit better admittedly). But, if you're looking to get in on the laptop gaming action, without having to break the bank, then the Medion Erazer X6811 could be the perfect machine for you.

Medion is probably best known for producing cheap and cheerful laptops like the Akoya P6625, but the Erazer X6811 is aimed at those looking for a cheap and ferocious gaming machine instead. The 15.6-inch Medion Erazer X6811 may not look quite as smart as some of its rivals, but it packs a powerful punch for a gaming machine that limbos in under the £1000 mark.

Medion reviews


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:

High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on the GF106 chip using GDDR5 graphics memory (up to 1.5 GB).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

Intel Core i5:

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.5 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.

3.5 kg:


85.54%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
