The Medion Erazer Beast X10 offers plenty of gaming power, a sober look, and a good level of features
With the Erazer Beast X10, Medion has a compact 17.3-inch gaming laptop in its range that is based on a barebone from Tongfang (GM7MPHP). The laptop isn't immediately recognizable as a high-performance gaming powerhouse thanks to its discreetly designed, fancy, slim, matte black all-metal case.
The Beast X10 brings all the latest games onto the screen with ease. The combination of a Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor, a GeForce RTX 2070 Super graphics core, and 32 GB of memory (dual-channel mode, max. 64 GB) makes this possible. Thanks to the 1 TB NVMe SSD, you shouldn't run out of storage space that quickly. However, should this be the case, the laptop offers space for a second NVMe SSD.
The matte 17.3-inch display (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz) scores points with stable viewing angles, decent brightness, good contrast, fast response times, and great color reproduction. Furthermore, battery life is good too. One battery charge is enough for practical runtimes of about 7 to 8 hours.
In the period from August 28, 2020 to February 28, 2021, the game Marvel's Avengers will be included with the purchase of the Beast X10 as a free download. However, not from Medion but from Intel. The corresponding promotion code ("while stocks last") will be sent by e-mail and must be redeemed with Intel by March 31, 2021. Medion has informed us that the procedure for claiming the code is explained in detail in the e-mail. The offer is not limited to Medion, as other laptop manufacturers are also participating in this Intel promotion.
