Computex 2019 | Clevo introduces the NB60TA 16-inch multimedia laptop and adds a new OLED option for the PB50RD

During Computex 2019 we had a chance to take a look at two new barebones from Clevo that may end up at resellers like Schenker or Eurocom. The Clevo NB60TA is a brand-new 16.1-inch Full HD multimedia laptop with a desktop CPU and a mobile GTX 1650, while the existing PB50RD is now also available with a new 4K OLED panel from Samsung.

Clevo NB60TA

The new multimedia laptop from Clevo features a 16.1-inch 144 Hz Full HD panel from Innolux that is powered by a beefy Coffee-Lake S desktop CPU (up to 65 W, e.g. Core i7-8700) and an entry-level dGPU from Nvidia (the GeForce GTX 1650). Therefore, only less-demanding games like League of Legends or Dota 2 may make full use of the possible 144 Hz / fps. However, the casual gamer will also get a 15-color backlight RGB keyboard and plenty of storage options with 2x M.2 NVMe slots and a 2.5-inch bay for hard disk drives. The chassis is in the typical Clevo style with some aluminum accents and plenty of ports. Notable features include the removable battery (seemingly available in two sizes) and the easy access for upgrade and maintenance through the detachable underside.

Clevo PB50RD - now with an OLED screen

The existing Clevo PB50RD was announced late last year and now gets the new Samsung 4K OLED panel as an option. We saw this panel in a lot of devices at Computex 2019 from Alienware, Asus and Gigabyte and the visual impression is excellent. We heard that color accuracy may be an issue if the panels are not constantly calibrated and there also remains the question of burn-in and lifetime. 

The PB50RD is offered with Coffee-Lake H CPUs (45 Watt up to Core i9) and either GeForce GTX 2060 or 2070 mobile graphics cards. CPU, GPU and RAM can be overclocked and the glass touchpad offers an integrated fingerprint reader in the center of the device. The keyboard also implements "n-key rollover" to avoid missed key strokes. The base unit is easily accessible from the bottom and again offers a lot of ports (some of them at the back). Again the battery is easily exchangeable without any screws.
