Acer TravelMate P6 (2021) Review: Welcome improvements to an already capable business laptop but not without caveats

Many steps forward, a few steps back. Acer upgraded the TravelMate P6 lineup to offer 16:10 displays, Intel Evo-based Tiger Lake underpinnings, enhanced security, and more. We have a pre-production model of the TravelMate P614P-52 with us and have put it through its paces to see how exactly Acer plans to take on competing business laptops in 2021.

Acer recently refreshed its TravelMate lineup of business laptops with Intel Tiger Lake options. We have with us the Acer TravelMate P6 P614P-52 laptop for review. This year's TravelMate P6 is built according to Intel Evo platform requirements and comes with niceties such as 5G connectivity, a 16:10 display, Thunderbolt 4 ports, and more. The new TravelMate lineup can be expected to be available in the EMEA from September and in North America from December.

Our test TravelMate P6 P614P-52 device is powered by the Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, 32 GB LPDDR4X RAM, 1 TB PCIe SSD, and a 14-inch 16:10 FHD display. This model also offers 5G and NFC connectivity. In this review, we evaluate the refreshed TravelMate P6 and see how well it fares against competing business laptops.

Note: Since the new TravelMate P6 is not yet available worldwide, Acer sent us a pre-production unit for evaluation. As such, drivers for the integrated fingerprint reader, Windows Hello camera, Acer User Sensing Technology, etc. were not available officially at the time of this writing. Therefore, we will not be awarding a rating for this device at this point. Acer confirmed to us that the drivers will be available on the official support site sometime in September.

Case: Built for the road yet lightweight

Last year's TravelMate P6 was already among the lightest business laptops around tipping the scales at just 1.17 kg. This year, Acer has further reduced the weight to just 1 kg. The Acer TravelMate P6 P614P-52 is an Intel Evo-certified design but will not turn any heads. It keeps a minimal profile that works great for the intended business audience.

The body is primarily made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy, which is just 16.8 mm thick though the overall texture does feel plasticky. The lid is quite thin and does flex a bit under pressure. That being said, it does not wobble wantonly and the hinges feel quite sturdy as well. We didn't notice any artefacts on the display when pressing the back of the lid.

The lid can be easily lifted with a single finger without causing the laptop to slide and can be rotated fully flat up to 180°. We did not notice any creaks, bends, or sharp corners in the chassis construction except for the inner display bezels, which didn't quite seem to be firmly attached to the LCD panel. According to Acer, the TravelMate P6 is MIL-STD 810H-certified for durable operation.

Connectivity: Slow microSD and Wi-Fi

The TravelMate P614P-52 is endowed with a fairly decent port selection. On the left of the device, we find two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a HDMI port, and USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-A. Towards the right, we have a microSD reader, nano-SIM slot, a 3.5 mm combo audio jack, and a Kensington lock slot. The front and rear of the device are devoid of any ports.

SD Card Reader

Acer does not seem to have improved the microSD cad performance compared to last year's model. The TravelMate P6414P-52 manages just about 20.2 MB/s maximum transfer rate in our standard file copy test (250 JPEG files, ~4.5 MB each) when tested with our reference AV PRO 128 GB V60 UHS II microSD card. The sequential reads are slightly better at 23.61 MB/s.

The Intel AX201 Wi-Fi module is soldered onto the mainboard

The TravelMate P6 is equipped with the Intel Wi-Fi AX201 Wi-Fi card that also offers Bluetooth 5.0. We tested the Wi-Fi performance using our reference Netgear Nighthawk AX12 RAX120 router at a distance of 1 m from the device in direct line of sight without any obstructions.

The Wi-Fi performance is about decent, particularly for downloads, though we have seen higher throughput in last year's model. Fast uploads are definitely not the TravelMate P6's forte, at least with our review sample.

Our unit also came with a built-in Intel WWAN module that supports 5G-NSA. eSIM support is available in addition to a physical nano-SIM slot. 4G LTE reception was good and was similar to what we observed with a smartphone (OnePlus 9) in the same area.

Webcam

This year's TravelMate P6 comes with a Full HD webcam, which offers a tangible improvement in color accuracy over the previous generation with a maximum Delta E of 12.35. However, as evident from our test chart, the integrated webcam leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to image sharpness. We also noticed that the webcam had a tendency for reddish to yellow tinting. Overall, the webcam quality is just about passable for video calling.

Security

Being a business laptop, the TravelMate P6 offers several security features. There's a discrete Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip available along with multiple authentication options such as facial and fingerprint. Optional Intel Evo vPro configurations are available as well. Acer offers the ProShield Plus app to configure additional security options such as file encryption, file decryption, file shredding, Application Guard, Browser Guard, USB device filter, and more.

The webcam is equipped with a manual privacy shutter. The TravelMate P6 also supports Acer User Sensing technology that automatically locks the screen when the user is not in range. We could not, however, test this feature owing to non-availability of drivers at the time of review.

Accessories

The in-box contents include the usual paperwork and a 65 W charger. With availability of two Thunderbolt 4 ports, there is ample scope for peripheral expansion. Though not listed on the Acer website yet, accessories such as the Acer USB Type-C Dock II are slated to be available soon.

Maintenance

There is no dedicated maintenance hatch provided. Removing 11 Torx T5 screws on the underside allows lifting off the bottom cover with minimal effort.

The TravelMate P6 is not a very user-serviceable laptop. The LPDDR4X RAM and the Intel AX201 Wi-Fi module are soldered onto the motherboard. Only the PCIe NVMe SSD can be swapped out. There is no scope for additional storage expansion.

Warranty

Acer India offers a three-year or a five-year warranty period for TravelMate P6 devices bought in India. International warranty can be availed from Acer Taiwan, which offers a one year global carry-in warranty limited to countries specified in the Acer International Travelers Warranty document.

Input Devices: Comfortable for prolonged use

Keyboard

The TravelMate P6 offers a good typing experience with its chiclet backlit keyboard. The keys have a short travel with mediocre tactile feedback. That being said, the keys are adequately spaced and extended typing is quite comfortable. Unfortunately, the backlight does not have a multi-step brightness control.

Touchpad

At 7.5 x 12.5 cm, the touchpad in the new TravelMate P6 has a larger area compared to the previous generation. The touchpad offers a smooth gliding experience and supports Windows Precision gestures. The left and right buttons are flush with the touchpad and are quite responsive even at the corners, though they seem to click a tad bit louder than we'd like.

Display: 16:10 with good colors and high PWM

Our TravelMate P6 unit came equipped with a 14-inch FHD 16:10 non-touch matte panel with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Acer has improved the display on the TravelMate P6 this time around with very good color reproduction and much improved brightness levels.

The overall characteristics of the TravelMate P6's panel seem very good with deep blacks and a high measured contrast ratio of 2653:1. We measured a peak brightness of 529.58 cd/m2, though the distribution itself is not up to the mark.

All display parameters were measured on AC power as we observed that the laptop lowers the brightness on battery by about 192 cd/m2 even though the brightness slider itself is set to maximum.

The TravelMate P6 pretty much covers the entire sRGB color gamut along with having decent AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 coverage. The panel already shows good color accuracy out-of-the-box, but we could achieve even better results with our calibration.

We measured a combined 22.9 ms response time from black to white and 40.79 ms from 50% grey to 80% grey. Though not exactly suited for gaming, the Acer TravelMate P6 offers decent response times compared to competing business laptops.

The TravelMate P6 uses PWM for backlight adjustment. While we observed very high to no PWM at 100% brightness, a PWM of 1,000 Hz is apparent as soon as the brightness is lowered to 99%. The good part is that this 1,000 Hz PWM frequency is maintained across all brightness levels from 0 to 99%, so users sensitive to PWM should not experience any discomfort during prolonged use.

For more information on PWM, check out our article on "Why Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) is such a headache". Also, have a look at our PWM ranking table for an overview of measured PWM and response times for all reviewed devices.

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
22.9 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.96 ms rise
↘ 11.94 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. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
40.79 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17.72 ms rise
↘ 23.07 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. » 51 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (37.8 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 detected 1000 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 1000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 1000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Our unit came equipped with the optional Acer PrivacyPanel that restricts viewing angles to just 90°. The PrivacyPanel can be toggled by pressing Fn+F10, and the best results are seen at lower brightness levels. Strangely, PrivacyPanel seemed to be automatically enabled when on AC power and pressing Fn+F10 apparently does not disable it.

Due to reduced brightness on battery as indicated above, the TravelMate P6's panel poses difficulty when viewed under direct sunlight. Acer claims a 170°-wide viewing angle, which is true if the PrivacyPanel is turned off. However, we did notice color shifts when viewed from extreme edges.

Performance: Well-sustained but not record-breaking

Our test unit is powered by an Intel Tiger Lake Core i7-1165G7 CPU, which is a 4C/8T part with 2.8 GHz base and 4.7 GHz boost clocks. Buyers can choose among Core i5-1135G7 and Core i7-1185G7 options as well.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-1165G7 in the TravelMate P6 offers good sustained performance without throttling
The Intel Core i7-1165G7 in the TravelMate P6 offers good sustained performance without throttling

The Core i7-1165G7 in the TravelMate P6 affords very good performance with up to 17% leads in all Cinebench single-core tests and up to a 32% lead in Geekbench single-core over the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U. Single-core performance is also comparable to the Core i7-1185G7, though the TravelMate P6's implementation is not always the fastest Core i7-1165G7 in the comparison.

We find no signs of throttling in the Cinebench R15 loop test, and the performance is much more consistent than what we observed with the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G2. Acer does not offer Ryzen 5000 Mobile-based TravelMate P6 laptops yet, which is unfortunate considering the huge disparity seen in multi-threaded performance compared to Ryzen 7 5700U-based devices such as the Lenovo ThinkPad E15 G3.

The Core i7-1165G7 in our test sample allows for a sustained PL1 of 28 W and a short burst PL2 of 64 W. According to Acer's documentation, it should be possible to switch between Silent, Normal, and Performance modes by using the Fn+F keyboard shortcut. However, the pre-production sample we received does not have this functionality. We also verified this with the latest version of the Acer Quick Access app that is supposed to offer performance mode selection, but we could not find any such option.

Check out our dedicated Core i7-1165G7 page for more information and benchmarks.

Cinebench R20 on battery shows reduced single-core performance
Cinebench R20 on battery shows reduced single-core performance

A quick run of Cinebench R20 on battery in a Balanced power profile does not show much variation in the multi-core score compared to AC power.

However, we do see a nearly 27% decrease in single-core performance as clocks drop from ~4.5 GHz to ~3.2 GHz on battery.

DPC Latency

We measured system latency using LatencyMon while opening multiple tabs of our site, playing back our sample 4K video on YouTube, and running Prime95 in-place large FFTs stress for 10 seconds. We recorded a high latency of 1914.40 µs. LatencyMon indicates Wdf01000.sys, which is the Windows Kernel Mode Driver Framework, as the driver with the highest execution time.

That being said, Wdf01000.sys's high execution times is usually due to other errant drivers which in this case is primarily ACPI.sys. Nevertheless, the TravelMate P6 does not seem to be suited for real-time audio or video editing.

Check out our DPC Latency Ranking page for more latency comparisons.

Storage Devices

The TravelMate P6 offers only a single M.2 2280 slot for NVMe SSDs
The TravelMate P6 offers only a single M.2 2280 slot for NVMe SSDs

Our unit came with a 1 TB Western Digital SN730 PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD that occupies the lone M.2 2280 slot on the motherboard. There is no scope for storage expansion via additional M.2 slots or drive bays. Synthetic benchmarks show that the SN730 SSD in the TravelMate P6 is significantly faster than the competition and is only beaten by the SN850 PCIe Gen4 SSD in the Framework Laptop 13.5

We also did not observe any throttling in our DiskSpd read loop test. The performance of this drive is more than adequate for the intended business demographic.

GPU Performance

The Core i7-1165G7 features an Iris Xe Graphics G7 iGPU with 96 execution units (EUs), which has a base clock of 400 MHz, and a boost of up to 1,300 MHz. As evident from the benchmarks below, the Iris Xe Graphics G7 is suitable for light 3D workloads.

3DMark Time Spy performance on battery takes a slight dip
3DMark Time Spy performance on battery takes a slight dip

Performance of Iris Xe Graphics G7 in 3DMark is on expected lines often within range of the slightly faster clocked variant in the Core i7-1185G7. The Iris Xe Graphics G7 is significantly faster than the Radeon RX Vega 8 iGPU in the Ryzen 7 5700U. 

We see only about a 6% reduction in performance in 3DMark Time Spy on battery in the Balanced power profile, which is not a major drop.

Gaming Performance

The Iris Xe Graphics G7 is suited for light gaming of older titles at low to medium settings. Interestingly, we found gaming performance to be at times better than even the slightly faster version in the Core i7-1185G7 and well above the overall average of all Xe Graphics G7s with 96 EUs tested so far.
