Eurocom Nightsky TXi317 laptop review: 125 W GeForce RTX 3080 Ti speedster

Great performer, aging design. The Nightsky TXi317 incorporates some of the fastest CPU and GPU options currently available on any laptop, but they're wrapped in an aging chassis design that's missing some features common on other flagship gaming laptops.

The Nightsky TXi317 is the latest 17.3-inch gaming laptop from Eurocom utilizing Intel's 12th gen Alder Lake-H CPUs and up to a 155 W TGP GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU to be one of the fastest gaming laptops currently available. It shares the same Tongfang chassis design as the Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22 and so we recommend checking out our existing review here for more details on the chassis and its physical features.

Our review configuration comes equipped with the Core i7-12700H CPU, 144 Hz 1080p IPS display, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU, and 64 GB of RAM for approximately $4100 USD. The lowest-end GPU option is the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti which puts the Nightsky TXi317 squarely in the enthusiast gaming laptop market.

Direct competitors include other high-performance 17-inch gaming laptops like the Aorus 17XMSI Raider GE77, or Alienware x17 R2.

Case

There is one superficial difference between the Nightsky TXi317 and XMG Pro 17 E22: The rear corners of the Eurocom design incorporate glossy bronze-color trims while the Schenker design does not. Otherwise, their chassis designs are identical.

Wi-Fi 6 comes standard with no Wi-Fi 6E options from the manufacturer despite the high price range of the model. Transfer rates are nonetheless steady and without connectivity issues.

The camera is only 1 MP with no 2 MP options which is again disappointing considering the high price range of the model.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by 16 Philips screws for easy serviceability. Most other gaming laptops have far fewer screws, however, and so it takes a bit more patience to open up the Eurocom.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes no extras beyond the AC adapter and paperwork. The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Display

Our test unit utilizes the same LG Philips LP173WFG-SPB3 IPS panel as found on the Schenker XMG Focus 17. When compared to the 1440p BOE panel on the XMG Pro 17 E22, our 1080p LG Philips panel offers narrower colors, a slower refresh rate, and slower black-white response times to be more of a midrange display than a high-end one. It's still very good, however, but 1440p is definitely a better fit than 1080p for a laptop running on a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU.

Luckily, the TXi317 comes with three panels to choose from ranging from 1080p to 4K. Keep in mind that none are OLED nor can they offer full AdobeRGB coverage.

Eurocom will calibrate the display for you for a fee. Our test unit came uncalibrated with average grayscale and color deltaE values of 3.8 and 2.35, respectively, which is actually not bad. Calibrating the panel ourselves would improve these averages even further to 1.4 and 1.61. Our calibrated profile is available to download for free above.

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
11.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 5.2 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 20 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 4.4 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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 not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19466 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

At 300 nits maximum, the display is about average for outdoor visibility when compared to other 17-inch gaming laptops. A few alternatives, such as the Razer Blade 17, have much brighter displays of over 500 nits for easier readability outdoors.

Performance

 

Testing Conditions

Our unit was set to Performance mode via both Windows and the pre-installed Control Center 3.0 software prior to running any benchmarks below for the highest possible scores. We also made sure to set Nvidia Optimus to discrete graphics; MUX is unfortunately not supported here.

Processor

Raw multi-thread performance is about 10 percent faster than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same Core i7-12700H. The processor in the HP Envy 16, for example, is much slower than our Eurocom even after accounting for any performance throttling.

Upgrading to the Core i9-12900H is expected to boost processor performance just marginally by about 5 to 10 percent based on our experience with the Alienware x15 R2 and Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22.

CineBench R15 would not run correctly on our unit much like on the last Eurocom system we reviewed earlier this year. We've reached out to the manufacturer and they were able to confirm our findings. The benchmark has been omitted for this review.

Storage Devices

The two internals M.2 2280 slots can each support PCIe4 x4 SSDs for insane speeds, at least in theory. In reality, however, the drives are likely to throttle since the chassis has no built-in heat spreader for the SSDs. The 1 TB Samsung 980 Pro PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD in our test unit would drop to as 1400 MB/s from an initial high of 6800 MB/s when running DiskSpd in a loop as shown by our graph below. Such results are generally acceptable for budget gaming laptops, but they are disappointing to see on high-end machines such as this.

GPU Performance

Graphics performance is excellent with results that are slightly ahead of most other laptops with the same GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU. The 125 W TGP isn't the highest as the Alienware x17 R2 and even the Razer Blade 17 have higher targets, but it is at least higher than on many ultrathin laptops like the MSI GS series.

Interestingly, Nvidia Control Panel claims a TGP of 155 W while Eurocom claims a TGP of 125 W. The latter number seems to be the more accurate target as our Stress Test section below will show.

Downgrading to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti will only impact graphics performance by about 10 percent. Overall performance is approximately 20 to 30 percent slower than our reference desktop GeForce RTX 3080.
