Medion Erazer X6603

Lenovo’s subsidiary Medion has just made available its latest affordable but high-end gaming notebook which is the Medion Erazer X6603. The high-end hardware specification allows users to use it for playing games at high detail, studying or even to use business applications. With Turbo Boost 2.0, the powerful Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor has enough power to keep up with current games. The graphics card in this league is also logical. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a piece of high-performance gaming hardware at the desktop level. It has with 4 GB GDDR5 memory and digital HDMI audio/video output. Also with the memory, this notebook uses one, with a PCIe SSD, which starts system and programs even faster than previous SSD hard disks. A 1 TB HDD holds abundant additional memory for photos, videos, music, and files. Thanks to 16GB of DDR4 memory multitasking is very fast. The chassis of the new Erazer X6603 reveals that the design is a modified version of Lenovo's existing Legion Y520 series of notebooks. The laptop adopts an original gamer-like look with its black blue design. The angled speaker grilles, bar hinge, and surrounding trackpad features are not unlike what Lenovo currently offers on its latest Y series. The Medion however, appears to be more streamlined for a wider mainstream appeal. The speakers of the laptop are High-Definition-Audio with 2 loudspeakers Dolby Audio Premium certified. As for the battery, the laptop features a 4-cell Li-ion battery which is capable of delivering an average battery time of 4 hours. Since it is clearly not able to last thru a whole day with the tightly sized battery, it is essential to bring a power supply on the go. On the software side, it has Windows 10 Home with a comprehensive Windows 10 App package and a free trial version of Office 365 are pre-installed. The display of the laptop is a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. While dominating opponents in a game, a user will have less burden of reflection, light and greasy fingerprints with the anti-reflective screen. An integrated USB 3.1 type C connector is available for fast data exchange. Other than that, it has the usual USB Type-A, HDMI, and RJ-45. The only disadvantage of the laptop is the absence of a DVD player for playing CDs and DVDs. Wirelessly, the Medion Erazer X6603 is equipped with an Intel Wireless-AC 8265 adapter as well as Bluetooth 4.1. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

No, it’s not perfect. But look past the limitations and you’ll still have a gaming laptop that’s good for playing most titles at decent frame rates and detail settings. Good luck getting better than that for less cash.

Medion Erazer X7857

The Medion Erazer X7857 is a large and fast gaming notebook with a metal case that can be easily overclocked. Through various settings in the BIOS, the Intel CPU and the RAM can be overclocked. Moreover, a pre-installed app allows to overclock the GTX 1070 graphics card from Nvidia. The gaming notebook from Medion has a 17.3-inch, matte, LED backlight display with IPS technology. The resolution is 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, which corresponds to Full HD. The viewing angles are very good and the screen content can be viewed loss-free from almost any angle. The average illumination is very good 373 cd/m² and the pixel density is 127 PPI. In addition to the Intel Core i7-7820HK, the notebook also includes a Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 with 8 GB of VRAM. It is based on the Nvidia Pascal architecture and also provides optimal conditions for virtual reality. The Intel CPU, an offshoot of the Kaby Lake architecture (7th generation), operates at a base clock of 2.9 GHz. Through hyper-threading individual CPU cores reach up to 3.9 GHz. The built-in CPU from Intel can also be easily overclocked. This requires manual intervention in the BIOS or Medion App. This model also has 32 GB of DDR4 RAM built in. The Windows 10 operating system is installed on a 512 GB SSD module. In delivery state, there are 422 GB available. This M.2 module achieved transfer rates of over 3,300 MB/s (measured with Crystal Diskmark 5.2.2). When writing, the SSD module is much slower. At around 1,500 MB/s, it is still fast. In addition, Medion has also built a hard drive, with a storage capacity of 2 TB in this model. The Medion Erazer X7857 gaming notebook has a large QWERTY keyboard with a separate numeric keypad. The keys have a good size and a very good stroke. In the front of the palm rest, there is a touchpad with two dedicated mouse replacement buttons. As a special highlight, a colored backlight can be switched on. It does not only glow in one color. The user can set different lighting effects in the software. There are many ports on the sides of the gaming notebook. On the left side, there are three USB sockets (Type A and Type C with Thunderbolt support). External monitors can be controlled via HDMI, Displayport, or the aforementioned USB Type C socket. That means a user can play on three monitors at the same time. On the right, Medion has two other type A USB sockets, the card reader for SD cards, the RJ-45 socket and the connections for the headset included. The gaming notebook lacks an optical drive. The network connection can either be wireless via WLAN (ac standard) or wired via the RJ-45 socket (GBit-LAN). The 6 cell battery of the gaming notebook is sufficient for about 5 hours (office/surfing). The Medion Erazer X7857 is a proper gaming laptop with specs good enough to play most games at their highest settings. However, the Full-HD resolution is a let down as users would expect a QHD or UHD resolution in a laptop like this. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

Medion reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile: Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,560 shaders. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2070 Super to achieve a much lower power consumption. The TGP is specified at 80 Watts and therefore significantly lower than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile (115 Watt).

Intel A730M: The Intel Arc A730M is a dedicated mobile lower mid-range graphics card based on Xe HPG microarchitecture. It offers 24 cores (384 ALUs), 24 ray tracing units and a base core of 1100 MHz. The TGP is specified between 80 and 120 Watt.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. Available in different versions with a TDP from 80 to 125 Watt.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA104 chip. At the time of the launch in early 2021, the 3080 is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU: High-End laptop graphics card based on the Ampere GA103S chip. At the time of the launch in early 2022, the 3080 Ti is the fastest laptop graphics card on the market.
