Tulpar T7 V20.6 (Tongfang GM7PG0R) laptop review: Currently one of the cheapest RTX 4060 gamers

Turkish tulip blooms on Berlin's Alex. Currently, the Tulpar laptop is gaining attention through its particularly low price. The manufacturer isn't one from China—it comes from Turkey and is based in a store on Berlin's Alexanderplatz, which invites potential buyers to try it out. We have taken a look at whether the 17-inch RTX 4060 gamer, the Tulpar T7, can keep up with models from the major manufacturers and whether you have a chance to score a real gaming bargain.

The originally Turkish company—which technically trades under the name Monster Notebook—changed its brand name to Tulpar Notebook for the European market in 2022. Tulpar has its DACH headquarters in the center of Berlin on the Alexanderplatz, where you can try out various products and have your device serviced—more on the latter later.

The laptops from Tulpar have been receiving increasing interest lately, which means we finally have the chance to test our first Tulpar laptop. "The A series includes more affordable basic models for occasional gamers. The T series is aimed at frequent gamers with high demands," says the manufacturer's website. We're testing the T7, a model for heavy gamers with high demands—but although the "A and T notebook series were designed according to the latest technological standards", there are currently only two models of the T6 with the latest Gen14 CPU from Intel. Our T7 is still equipped with an i7-13700H from the last Intel generation. In addition, there is an RTX 4060 inside the Tonfang GM7PG0R case.

The current appeal of a Tulpar laptop is above all its low price. Low price? On the website, the model with 1 TB of storage costs around US$1,800! But at the same time, you can also get the T7 laptop from certain online retailers who demand a lot less for it. 

Fewer and fewer 17-inch gamers are being released this year due to the rise of 18-inch models. As a result, we will be comparing the T7 with other budget to mid-range gamers from last year such as the XMG Apex 17, Acer Nitro 17, Medion Erazer Defender P40 and the MSI Katana 17. In addition, we will be throwing the 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5i 16 G9 with a current CPU into the ring to see how far ahead the latest technology can come.

Case - A Tongfang with a green gamer eye

The Tongfang case is made completely from black plastic. The green logo on the front, the wide strip with a honeycomb pattern underneath and the Tulpar branding with a green stripe on the base above the keyboard provide accents to the device. The slightly textured surface attracts grease and fingerprint marks. 

In our torsion tests, the base could be bent quite easily and the side edges in particular made stronger cracking noises. Apart from that, the base is sufficiently stable, and the same can be said for the display. The hinges hold the display in place well, but they can't prevent a certain amount of rocking when adjusting its opening angle. The latter is around 145 degrees.

We only noted some small gaps along the front edge where the base meets the bottom plate and the latter is slightly curved. The bottom is made from a slightly softer plastic and the plastic can easily be pressed against the internal cooling elements—especially the heat pipes—from the outside at the air grilles in particular, which are even softer due to their slits. However, this should not normally happen thanks to the four rubber feet.

All-in-all, its build quality is fine, but there are definitely more stable and better-quality devices on the market.

Within the comparison field, the T7 has an average size and weight. It is about the same size as the Medion or the XMG, while the Nitro and the Katana are larger. Its 2.6-kg weight is only just undercut by the Schenker, whereas the rest of the comparison devices are heavier—especially the Nitro which weighs around 3 kg.  

With a maximum thickness of 30 mm, the T7 doesn't look terribly slim, but the Acer Nitro is just as thick and the Medion even has 3 mm more on its (cooling) ribs—especially since the T7 is thinner than its specified maximum value in most places. The Katana and the XMG are slimmer.

Connectivity - No Thunderbolt, but USB 2.0

The Tulpar gamer features all the most necessary connectivity options and one big positive is its dedicated MiniDP port at the back which could be especially important for VR headsets. In turn, its USB-C port unfortunately doesn't support Thunderbolt and one of its three USB-A ports (left) is still type 2.0. Even so, it at least has a full-sized SD card reader and two separate audio ports. 

Its layout is fine, at least the connections are well distributed on both sides and at the back. Above all, potentially rigid and thick cables—such as LAN, HDMI, MiniDP and power—run out the back, so you'll only have to deal with USB devices on the sides. On the right-hand side, the two USB-A ports could be a little further apart but otherwise, the laptop's distribution is good.

SD card reader

Slow SD card reader
Slow SD card reader

We like that the laptop is fitted with a full-sized SD card reader. Less impressive is how slow the card reader's speeds are. There is no latching mechanism and the cards stick out halfway. 

We measured sequential read and write rates of only around 27 MB/s, which is anything but up to speed with our AV PRO MicroSD 128 GB V60 reference card. Copying 1 GB of image material from the card to the desktop takes a whopping 48 seconds! The competition is much faster, although the Legion 5 and the XMG are not decisive.

The device has an RJ45 LAN connection. For WLAN, Tulpar has installed the Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 module, which supports Wi-Fi 6 but not Wi-Fi 6E. 

Its transmission rates are high and very constant when sending and receiving.

Webcam

The 720p webcam
The 720p webcam

While at least the XMG and the Legion 5 already rely on Full HD webcams, the Tulpar, like the other competitors, still has a 720p camera.

This also has to contend with quite high color deviations and poor sharpness, resulting in it not transmitting a very nice image of the user.

Security

A Kensington slot is available and TPM is integrated into the Intel CPU. There are no additional security features such as a fingerprint sensor or a webcam cover at the least.

Accessories and warranty

No extra accessories come with the affordable Tulpar laptop. However, there is the promise of lifelong, annual, free maintenance in addition to a statutory warranty of 12 months. This includes cleaning the fans, replacing the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU and removing dust from the case. But be careful: If the customer does anything themselves (e.g. changes the thermal paste), the free maintenance expires, so it is best to read the exact terms and conditions on Tulpar's website.

Maintenance

The bottom case part is held in place by 10 Phillips screws of the same length and lots of plastic clips. As a result, you should take care when levering it but in general, it is quite easy to open. There are no hidden screws.

Inside, you will gain access to the cooling system, the two RAM slots (only one occupied), the two M.2 SSD slots (one free), the Wi-Fi module and the battery.

Input devices - Keyboard is better than expected

Keyboard

The keyboard has a standard layout; everything is spread over six rows and nothing deviates toward the top of bottom of the device. There is a number pad on the right-hand side. The base of the three-level backlit (1-zone) keyboard is slightly recessed and the keys measure 1.5 x 1.5 cm in size. Their pressure path is slightly longer and softer than on many other laptops, but their feedback is crisp enough. As a result, the keyboard feels less flat than some of its competitors and typing on it is quite comfortable and fast. The typing noise is moderate to medium loud and the key labelling is easy to read.

There is a separate power button above the rest of the keyboard and next to it sits another button to switch between performance profiles. Unfortunately, they have different names compared to what is listed in the Control Center, but they control exactly these ones. Office is balanced, gaming is enthusiast and turbo is actually called overboost. A small LED on the button shows which mode is in use (off = office, orange = gaming, lighter orange = turbo).

Touchpad

The touchpad
The touchpad

The Tulpar is clearly marketed toward gamers, and its relatively small touchpad (approx. 10.6 x 7.35 cm) makes this obvious, despite the laptop being a 17-inch model. As a result of the number pad, it isn't totally centred—instead, it sits slightly over to the left, meaning it is right beneath the space bar.

Its surface is only nice and smooth under optimum conditions—in other words, as soon as your hands are a little moist, they catch on its surface. You can (de)activate the touchpad by double tapping the top left part and a small LED shows its current status.

Its click noises are a little louder and don't give the device a very high-quality feel, but they are okay. All-in-all, the touchpad responds very well, delivering a solid total performance. Gamers will likely reach for a mouse, anyway.

Display - Decent Full HD from 2019

The matte Full HD IPS display from Chi Mei is an old acquaintance, also finding its home in several cheaper MSI G-series laptops, including the MSI GP75 Leopard 9SD (2019) which we previously tested, as well as the MSI GT76 9SG (2019) and the MSI GE75 9SG. Of course, age is not really a sign of quality in this case. With the exception of the Katana, none of the competitors rely on Full HD at 17 inches, but instead on higher-resolution screens with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels. 

Even so, the panel isn't necessarily bad. Its average brightness of around 350 nits is fine, but its illumination could do with being more even. In turn, its contrast is higher than that of the comparison devices thanks to its black value which is good for a budget device. Backlight bleeding is barely noticeable and should definitely not get in your way. 

The screen flickers at brightness levels below 25 per cent, however, at a high frequency of 25 kHz to 42 kHz, meaning even sensitive users should barely have any issues with it. Its response times are approx. 11 (black to white) to 15 ms (gray to gray).

* ... smaller is better

The somewhat outdated panel cannot quite keep up with current displays when it comes to color space coverage. If you are looking for more color space coverage than sRGB, then you should look elsewhere.

The panel is astoundingly well-calibrated straight out of the box, especially within this price class. Its average grayscale and ColorChecker DeltaE values are only 0.9 and 0.83 (measured against sRGB), so users won't need to calibrate the screen further.

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
11.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.7 ms rise
↘ 5.4 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 25 % 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

This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.5 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 detected 25000 Hz
Amplitude: 27 %

The display backlight flickers at 25000 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 25000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17682 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outside, the display's matte surface prevents most reflections. In the shade, you can work well when looking directly at the T7—its brightness of 350 nits is just enough to be able to do this. You should just avoid direct sunlight and slanted viewing angles.

Performance - Intel Gen13 is not old news

There are several configurations of the Tulpar T7 available, all of which feature the RTX 4060. Our T7 20.6 is equipped with the Raptor Lake CPU i7-13700H, whereas models around the T7 20.7 still use a 12th-gen Alder Lake CPU—despite the supposedly higher "number" in the name. Then there are also different RAM and SSD configurations, which are usually followed by a number, for example the T7 20.6.1 (1 TB SSD) versus the T7 20.2 (500 GB SSD)—both models have 32 GB RAM. The memory and storage configuration of our test device (16 GB RAM and 500 GB SSD) cannot be found on Tulpar's website or the comparison portals.

The Tulpar T7 is clearly aimed at gamers on a tighter budget. Its Intel Gen13 CPU and RTX 4060 promise good gaming performance at a low price. Creators, on the other hand, are not directly addressed by its obvious gamer design, thick case, small touchpad and decent screen which isn't the best suited for editing. 

 

Testing conditions

Tulpar relies on a generic, slightly adapted Control Center, the design of which is exactly the same as that used in the XMG models from Schenker and certain others. It is simple but clear and offers various setting options.

The performance tab offers three default profiles (balanced, enthusiast, overboost) as well as a manual mode with all kinds of customization options. We carried out our performance benchmarks using overboost mode unless otherwise stated.

In addition to the performance profiles, there is also a MUX switch, general settings, display options, keyboard lighting settings and battery settings.

A word about battery mode: Although the laptop's performance is of course greatly reduced, the power mode set does not change visually, so if you have previously activated overboost mode and unplug the power plug, it is still active in the Control Center. This suggests that you also have the choice between various power modes when you are away from an outlet. However, this is most likely not the case, as our battery mode results were always the same (within the tolerance), regardless of the selected power mode.

Processor

The Intel Gen13 Core i7-13700H CPU, which was found in many gaming computers from the major manufacturers last year, is used in this gaming laptop. The latest Gen14 is currently only available in the T6 series from Tulpar. However, as Gen14 offers hardly any speed advantages, the newer laptops' lead is likely to be small at best.

Our Tulpar performed well during the Cinebench R15 loop, delivering a high and—above all—very constant performance without any drops after the first few runs. In overboost, it called up a fairly constant TDP of 95 to 96 watts, in enthusiast mode it was still 82 watts and in balanced mode we noted only 48 watts. In battery mode, it is automatically set to balanced. Here, the CPU's performance drops by around 27 per cent.

In general and across all benchmarks, the T7 was pretty much on the same performance level as the average laptop fitted with the same CPU in our database. It was even faster in many tests, but its unusually low Geekbench multi-thread scores spoil its overall score slightly. During the Cinebench tests, it was around 11 per cent faster than the average i7-13700H.

This put it right in the middle of the comparison devices in terms of performance—only the Legion 5 was noticeably faster, and all other competitors were within a few percentage points of our test device.

Its unusually low multi-core scores in the Geekbench tests are quite interesting. Its scores remained very low even after various repetitions (overboost, dGPU and hybrid mode tested). In the Cinebench tests, however, its multi-thread scores were normal to good.

System performance

When it comes to system performance, the T7 ranks in the upper midfield. During PCMark 10, it achieved the exact average level for this hardware combination. Its CrossMark results are a little on the low side.

It's not the best that only one RAM slot is occupied—at least in our configuration of the T7. The AIDA memory test below shows the disadvantage of single-channel RAM. For dual-channel, you would have to insert another bar, as one slot is still free.

DPC latencies

Unfortunately, we already noted the first latency problems when moving the window of the LatencyMon software. Opening the browser increased the latency value further, whereas opening several tabs afterwards did not. Up to this point, the value of around 500 μs which we measured is still within a tolerable range.

However, when playing our 4K/60fps YouTube video, the delay value rose to over 5,000 μs! At least there were no dropped frames but still, this value is still clearly too high.

Storage devices

The installed Samsung NVMe SSD with only 500 GB of storage is a bit older and, as a result, not particularly fast, also because it underperforms slightly inside the T7. The competition is clearly faster in this aspect. You should definitely opt for a T7 configuration with 1 TB of storage. However, there is no need to worry, as its speed should be sufficient enough for everyday work and gaming, and it also performed slightly better in the Crystaldiskmark test. After all, its performance remained constant over a longer period of time.
