Medion Erazer Major X20 review: Gaming notebook with RTX 4070 and solid hardware

Upgraded. Medion's heavily equipped gaming notebook offers a large 16-inch screen (QHD+, 240 Hz, G-Sync) in 16:10 format, a mechanical keyboard, 32 GB of RAM and a whopping 2 TB of storage space. A Core i9-13900HX and a GeForce RTX 4070 drive the powerful computing behemoth.

The Medion Erazer Major X20 is primarily a gaming notebook, but is also made for other computing-intensive application scenarios. Compared to its predecessor, the X20 has received some useful upgrades: the Arc A730M graphics core has given way to a significantly more powerful GeForce RTX 4070. Furthermore, a mechanical keyboard replaces the chiclet model, while one of the two USB-C ports (USB 3.2 Gen 2) has been removed and the remaining one has been upgraded to a Thunderbolt 4 port.

The X20 is based on a Tongfang barebone (GM6PX7X), which is largely similar to the model known from the XMG Neo 16, but the port for the water cooling is missing. Competitors include laptops such as the Aorus 15X ASF, the Razer Blade 15 OLED (Early 22) and the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713PI.

Case - A discreet exterior for the Medion laptop

Medion uses a chic, sober chassis that does not stand out, even in a professional environment. The back of the lid of the matte black case is made of aluminum, the base unit of plastic. A non-slip rubber coating covers the base unit's upper side. In addition to the key backlight (RGB), two freely configurable LED strips (RGB) inside the rear air vents and the illuminated Erazer logo on the lid loosen up the otherwise serious-looking case.

The 16 incher reveals no manufacturing flaws. Gap dimensions are even and there are no material protrusions. The base unit can only be twisted slightly, the lid more clearly, but the entire device is within reasonable limits. The battery (screwed, not glued) and other internal components are accessible after removing the bottom shell. The hinges keep the lid firmly in position and the maximum opening angle is about 130 degrees. One-hand opening of the lid is possible.

In the comparison field, the Medion laptop is one of the devices with the thickest build. In terms of weight, it lands in the middle field.

Equipment - Major X20 offers Thunderbolt 4

The Erazer has three USB-A ports (1x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2) and one USB-C port (Thunderbolt 4). The latter outputs a DisplayPort signal, but does not provide any Power Delivery support. The Major X20 also boasts a total of two video outputs (HDMI 2.1, DP). Further connections include a slot for a cable lock, two audio jacks and a Gigabit Ethernet port (2.5 Gbps).

Video outputs, the power slot and the network port are located on the back of the device. The corresponding cables thus run from the back and do not get in the way.

Webcam

The webcam (2.1 MP, max. 1,920 x 1,080) delivers standard quality. Color accuracy is lacking: at a color deviation of about 11, the target (DeltaE less than 3) is missed. No mechanical shutter is on board.

Accessories

Apart from the usual documents (quick start guide and warranty information), no other accessories are included with the notebook.

Maintenance

After removing all screws on the underside of the device, the bottom shell can be detached using a flat spatula or a joint smoother. You then have access to the two RAM slots (both occupied), the two SSDs (PCIe 4, M.2-2280), the WLAN module, the fans, the BIOS battery and the laptop battery.

Warranty

Medion provides a two-year warranty on the Erazer in Germany. This may differ in other countries, so buyers should double check before purchasing. 

Warranty extensions are available but have to be purchased together with the notebook in Medion's online store. A subsequent purchase is not possible.

Input Devices - Mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches

Keyboard

Instead of a chiclet keyboard, Medion has installed a mechanical keyboard into the X20. The Cherry MX switches have a medium travel and a clearly audible and noticeable pressure point. The user is spoiled with a rich typing feel and precise feedback, and the keyboard does not yield during typing. Two function keys regulate the brightness of the four-stage individual key illumination (RGB). Overall, we can speak of a solid keyboard here.

Touchpad

A multi-touch capable clickpad (approx. 11.6 x 7.2 cm) serves as a mouse replacement. Its smooth surface makes finger gliding easy. It offers short travel and a clear pressure point. A finger tap on the LED in the upper left corner turns the entire pad on or off.

Medion installs a 240 Hz panel with G-Sync support. The latter dynamically adjusts the refresh rates of the display and GPU to create the smoothest possible picture quality - particularly when gaming.

PWM flickering is not present at any brightness setting. The brightness and contrast of the matte 16-inch panel (2560x1600) in the work-friendly 16:10 format reach the respective target (> 300 cd/m² or 1000:1).

* ... smaller is better

The screen produces good color representation in the delivery state: The target (DeltaE < 3) is reached with a deviation of about 2.4. Manual calibration reduces the deviation to 1.4 and ensures a more balanced grayscale.

The panel completely covers the sRGB color space, but not the AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces. If all three color spaces are required, there is no way around the Blade 15's OLED screen.

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
7.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.1 ms rise
↘ 4.2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
13.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 7.1 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 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Reading the screen outdoors is possible if the sun is not too strong.

Testing Conditions

The X20 offers three manufacturer-specific power modes (see table), which you can select via a separate button (next to the power button). A status LED reveals which mode is active. "Turbo Mode" (benchmarks) and "Office Mode" (battery tests) were used. Optimus was active.

Individual profiles can be created using the preinstalled Control Center software. For example, the power limits of the CPU, the TGP of the GPU and/or the upper temperature limits can be adjusted.

We used the English-language interface of the CC software because the German translation was partially unsuccessful. You can switch between the two languages.

Processor

The Core-i9-13900HX processor (Raptor Lake) consists of eight performance cores (hyperthreading, 2.2 to 5.4 GHz) and sixteen efficiency cores (no hyperthreading, 1.6 to 3.9 GHz). In total, there are 32 logical CPU cores. The benchmark results are on par with the CPU's average rates.

The CPU tests of the Cinebench R15 benchmark were run at high to maximum clock rates in mains operation. Single-thread performance (222 points), which is relevant to everyday use, drops significantly less in battery mode than multi-thread performance (1025 points).

The CB15 loop test reveals that a high turbo clock is consistently sustained under multi-thread load in mains operation. The clock rate only drops minimally over the course of the test.

DPC Latency

The standardized latency monitor test (web surfing, 4k video playback, Prime95 high-load) revealed anomalies. The system does not seem to be suitable for real-time video and audio editing. Future software updates may improve this or lead to further deterioration.

Storage Devices

The Erazer houses two 1 TB SSDs (PCIe 4, M.2-2280) from Phison, which deliver good performance rates overall. The SSDs do not form a RAID array, nor does the X20 offer RAID support - one SSD serves as the system drive, the other as data storage. A positive aspect: thermal throttling was not observed.

The X20 has two PCIe-4 SSDs on board.
The X20 has two PCIe-4 SSDs on board.
