Medion Erazer Beast X25: Priced quite attractively for an RTX 3080 laptop
We recently reviewed the Beast X20 with the Core i7-10870H and the GeForce RTX 3070. Medion has now launched the Beast X25, a new and equally exciting gaming laptop that does without an Intel processor and features a strong AMD CPU (Ryzen 9 5900HX) in return.
Nvidia's current top model, the GeForce RTX 3080 with 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, serves as the graphics card. The RAM and storage configuration is also very generous considering the 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and the 2 TB NVMe SSD. A Full HD panel with a refresh rate of 240 Hz is in charge of image reproduction. Users who can invest 200 Euros more (~$237) (2,899 Euros (~$3,441) instead of 2,699 Euros (~$3,204)) will also find a model with a 165 Hz QHD display on Medion's website.
Besides a Thunderbolt port (missing due to AMD), we would've particularly liked to see lower noise levels. The 17-incher can get quite loud both in idle usage as well as in 3D mode.
All further strengths and weaknesses of the Erazer Beast X25 can be found in our review.
