Eluktronics Matrix RP-17 Laptop Review: Core i9 Performance Without The Core i9 Price

Can we get a GeForce RTX 2070 option, please? At around $1100 USD, the Eluktronics RP-17 is about the same price as most Intel-powered versions with the same GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, but the Ryzen 7 4800H will be faster than any mobile Core i7 option you can find.

Following on the footsteps of the 15.6-inch Eluktronics RP-15 is the 17.3-inch RP-17. The larger model carries many of the same features as its smaller version including the Ryzen 7 4800H CPU and GeForce RTX 2060 GPU alongside similar chassis materials and ports. It also has a lot in common with the Walmart EVOO Gaming 17, Schenker XMG Neo 17, or XMG Core 17 as all of these models utilize white label Tongfang chassis designs.

Eluktronics is planning to ship the RP-17 starting this September for about $1100 USD to compete against other mid-range gaming laptops like the Asus ROG Strix series, Dell G7 17 series, MSI GL75/GE75. or the Lenovo Legion Y740.

Case

Many of our comments on the aforementioned Walmart or Schenker laptops apply here because their similar materials and Tongfang ODM. The distinguishing feature of the Eluktronics version is that users can configure with no logo or branding on the outer lid for a cleaner look. One can argue that it looks uninspired, but we like the modest option especially when considering that there are so many exuberant LED-centric gaming laptops out there.

Connectivity

Port options are identical to the RP-15 despite the larger 17.3-inch screen size. The two mini-DisplayPort ports are notable as is the USB 2.0 port which most other gaming laptops in this price range do not carry. 

The sole USB-C port does not support DisplayPort-out nor can it be used to recharge the laptop.

Maintenance

The bottom panel requires only a Philips screwdriver to remove. Users have direct access to all storage bays, SODIMM slots, battery, and the WLAN module which is more than what we can say for the MSI GS75.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the usual paperwork and AC adapter. The standard one-year limited warranty applies with options to extend up to three years.

Display

The RP-17 uses the same high quality 144 Hz BOE NV173FHM-N44 IPS panel as found on the Eurocom Nightsky RX17 or Schenker XMG Neo 17. Response times are fast with respectable contrast ratio for reduced ghosting and good black levels, respectively. Eluktronics doesn't offer any 240 Hz, 300 Hz, or 4K options here which is fine considering the price point.

The one aspect that's not fine is the heavy uneven backlight bleeding on our test unit as shown by the picture below. Minor or even moderate bleeding is acceptable, but this is too noticeable when gaming or watching movies with black borders. We see this more often on white label laptops like those from Clevo when compared to systems from Lenovo, HP, or Dell.

Color space covers over 90 percent of sRGB and approximately 60 percent of AdobeRGB to be similar to most other high refresh rate panels or Ultrabook laptops in the market. Laptops that cater more towards creators or content creators, like the Dell XPS, Razer Blade 15 Studio, or Asus ZenBook Pro may have OLED options that can offer even deeper and more accurate colors.

Colorimeter measurements show a decently calibrated display out of the box with grayscale and color DeltaE averages of 3.3 and 4.13, respectively. Color temperature is slightly too cool which an end-user calibration easily fixes. There are measurable improvements across the board after calibrating the display ourselves, but we wouldn't call it significant or vital for gaming.

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
12 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.2 ms rise
↘ 4.8 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. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
22.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.8 ms rise
↘ 11.6 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.8 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 943.4 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 943.4 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 943.4 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17714 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance

There are no other CPU, GPU, or display options available for the RP-17 at the moment outside of the configuration we have in review. Though this will probably upset users who wish to configure different processors, the move will likely save on costs.

Graphics switching to the integrated Radeon GPU is available. We recommend installing AMD's Radeon software for additional graphics and display settings not found on the pre-installed Eluktronics Control Center including AMD Vari-Bright to increase brightness when on battery power.

Unless otherwise stated, all benchmarks below were performed on Turbo fan mode to get the best possible scores out of the laptop.

Processor

Raw multi-thread performance is about 15 to 20 percent faster than the competing Core i7-10875H to be even faster than some pricier Core i9 laptops like the Asus Strix Scar 17 G732LXS. Performance sustainability is especially excellent with no major dips over time even when subjected to extreme processing loads as shown by our CineBench R15 xT loop test results below. Most Core i7 or Core i9 laptops would experience noticeable drops in performance over time in comparison.

See our dedicated page on the Ryzen 7 4800H for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

The mobile GeForce RTX 2060 is performing where we expect it to be relative to other laptops with the same GPU. Users can expect about 10 to 15 percent faster performance than the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti on top of the added support for RTX-specific features. The regular desktop GeForce RTX 2060 is roughly 15 to 20 percent faster than our mobile RTX 2060 version.

Keep in mind that gaming performance isn't necessarily faster than laptops powered by 10th gen Core i7 CPUs despite the faster Ryzen 7 since most games are GPU bound.

See our dedicated page on the mobile GeForce RTX 2060 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

Emissions

System Noise

Fan noise is tied closely to the Eluktronics Control Center software. If simply web browsing or video streaming, users should set the system to Office mode so the fans will remain below 30 dB(A) most of the time and avoid pulsing as frequently.

Gaming on Balanced mode or High Performance would induce a steady fan noise of 47.2 dB(A) to be quieter than many other high-power 17.3-inch gaming laptops including the MSI GE75 or Razer Blade Pro 17. Enabling Turbo mode will bump fan noise up to 54.6 dB(A) to match those aforementioned laptops.

Temperature

Surface hot spots when gaming reach about 38 C to 46 C on the top and bottom sides, respectively, to be cooler than what we recorded on the MSI GS75 when under similar conditions. The palm rests, WASD keys, and arrow keys remain relatively cool for comfortable gaming. 

The back half of the chassis dedicates a lot of space for ventilation which users should be careful to not block or impede.

Stress Test

When under Prime95 stress, the CPU would boost to 4.3 GHz for the first few seconds before dipping just slightly to stabilize at 4.2 GHz. The excellent clock rate sustainability can be observed during our CineBench loop test above as well.

When gaming on Turbo fan mode, the CPU and GPU would stabilize at 64 C and 61 C, respectively, compared to 68 C and 65 C when Turbo is off. Clock rates barely change meaning that the biggest advantage of enabling Turbo fan mode is for the cooler core temperatures rather than maximizing performance. Temperatures are already excellent even without Turbo mode.

Running on batteries will limit performance. A Fire Strike run on battery power would return Physics and Graphics scores of 17046 and 4039 points, respectively, compared to 22083 and 16694 points when on mains. Turbo fan mode is disabled when on battery power.
