Case - The X10 features a compact metal case

The demand for gaming laptops that come in a discreet design is growing increasingly. With the Beast X10, the supply has been extended by a further device of this kind. Here, Medion uses a fancy, matte black colored full metal case that wouldn't attract attention in a professional environment. The slim display bezels contribute greatly to the laptop's attractive look. You can reach the inside after removing the bottom cover. The battery is firmly installed.

The laptop shows good workmanship. The gap dimensions are in order, and there's no excess material to be found. Moreover, the device doesn't show any stability deficiencies. The opposite is the case: The X10 offers such a rigid base unit that it's rare for us to find something like it. The lid can be twisted, but the whole situation still remains within the limits. Pressure on the backside of the lid doesn't lead to changes on the image. The hinges hold the lid firmly in position. The maximum aperture angle is about 130 degrees. In addition, opening the lid with one hand is possible.

Within our comparison field, the Erazer is one of the most compact devices. It's only just beaten by the Razer Blade Pro 17. However, it weighs almost 400 grams less than the Blade.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 3 on board

The X10 offers a well-rounded interface selection. The laptop comes with three USB Type-A ports (2x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2) and one USB Type-C port (Thunderbolt 3). The latter supports DisplayPort via USB-C. Therefore, the laptop has two video outputs together with the HDMI 2.0 connection. The whole package is rounded off with two audio jacks (headphone output, microphone input), a Gigabit Ethernet port, and an opening for a cable lock. A microSD memory card reader is also included.

How much memory does the X10 support?

Medion's specifications regarding RAM are unclear. On the Medion website it says: "Max. supported RAM memory: 32 GB". It seems that this doesn't refer to the maximum possible amount of RAM but to the maximum size of the individual memory modules. We have successfully replaced one of the two 16 GB modules with a 32 GB module (see HWiNFO screenshot). As a result, the X10 should support up to 64 GB of RAM.

The specification should be clarified.

The Erazer supports more than 32 GB of RAM.

Communication

The WLAN chip (AX201) from Intel supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax WLAN standards and offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. The transmission speeds determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) are outstanding. A Gigabit controller from Realtek's well-known RTL8168/8111 family is responsible for wired network connections. It performs its tasks smoothly.

Webcam

The webcam (0.9 MP; max. 1280x720 pixels) is located at the bottom of the display. It doesn't produce convincing images, since it lacks color accuracy. With a deviation of almost 20, the target (Delta E less than 3) is clearly missed.

Accessories

The laptop comes with the usual documents: A quick-start guide and warranty information.

Maintenance

You can get to the inside of the laptop quite easily. After removing all screws on the underside of the device, the bottom cover can be detached. A grout finishing tool or a thin spatula can be used to loosen the clamps securing the bottom cover; it sits quite tightly in some places. Afterwards, you have access to the two memory slots (both occupied), the two M.2 2280 slots (one occupied), the WLAN module, the BIOS battery, and the rechargeable battery.

Warranty

Medion grants the Erazer a two-year warranty. Warranty extensions are not available.

Input devices - Chiclet keyboard with RGB backlighting

Keyboard

The X10 has a backlit chiclet keyboard on board; its concave keys offer a short travel and a clear pressure point. The keys sit quite close together (distance: Approx. 2 mm). The main keys are fairly large, measuring about 16 x 16 mm. Good: The keyboard doesn't yield during typing. All in all, Medion delivers a keyboard suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

The multi-touch capable ClickPad takes up an area of about 13.2 x 7.4 cm. The smooth surface doesn't hinder the fingers' ability to glide. The pad reacts precisely to input - even in the corners. It offers a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Already out of the box, the display shows a very decent color reproduction. With a Delta E 2000 color deviation of just under 3, the target (Delta E less than 3) is met. In addition, the display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Calibration provides for improvements: In this way, the color deviation is reduced to 1.03, and the grayscales are displayed in a more balanced way. The AdobeRGB (66%) and sRGB (89%) color spaces aren't fully reproduced.

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
10 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 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. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.6 ms rise
↘ 6.8 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.3 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9713 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The laptop is equipped with a viewing-angle stable IPS panel. Consequently, the screen can be read from any position. Outdoors, the display can be read when the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Performance - Sufficient for the coming years

With the Erazer Beast X10, Medion has a 17.3-inch gaming laptop in its range that brings every modern game smoothly onto the screen. Our test device will set you back about 2,200 Euros (~$2,631). Other configurations are available.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Gaming Center allows you to monitor the system status, adjust the keyboard backlight, and select a performance profile ("Office Mode", "Game Mode", "Turbo Mode"). We conducted our test under the "Game Mode" and with automatic fan control. The "Turbo Mode" doesn't increase performance compared to the "Game Mode". This might be different with other configuration variants of the X10. Next to the laptop's power button, there's another key that serves to quickly switch between profiles.

Game Mode Turbo Mode Office Mode Office Mode - Eco
PL1 120 watts 120 watts 100 watts 25 watts
PL2 120 watts 120 watts 100 watts 25 watts

For most users, the "Game Mode" and the "Office Mode", including the manually selectable "Eco" option, should be of interest, since this is a good choice for everyday use (office, Internet). The CPU then works at the same power level as conventional ULV processors. In other words: The computing power decreases, and the fans work much less frequently. Some of the comparison tables in this review contain benchmark results obtained under the "Office Mode (Eco)" profile.

Processor

Medion equips the X10 with a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake). The CPU works at a base speed of 2.6 GHz. The clock rate can be increased to 4.3 GHz (six cores) or up to 5 GHz (one core) via Turbo. Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The CPU processes the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 4.2 GHz. The single-thread test is executed at 4.2 to 5 GHz. On battery power, the speeds are 2.2 to 2.5 GHz (multithread) and 2.2 to 2.7 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max Q graphics core (Turing) is part of the GPU upper class. It's accompanied by fast GDDR6 memory (8,192 MB). The 3DMark results are at a normal level for the GPU used here. "Turbo Mode" doesn't increase graphics performance. The UHD Graphics 630 GPU integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution.

The BIOS provides options.
The BIOS provides options.

It's not mandatory to use Optimus. The laptop's BIOS offers three options: "MSHybrid" (= Optimus), "iGPU Only" (= UHD Graphics 630), "dGPU Only" (= 2070 Super). It's possible to connect the display directly to the GeForce GPU.

Gaming performance

The Beast brings all the latest games at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings smoothly onto the screen. Higher resolutions can also be supported by connecting an appropriate monitor - but you may have to make some compromises in terms of quality settings. "Turbo Mode" doesn't lead to an increase in frame rates.
