Aldi Nord estimates a proud € 1,999 for the Medion Erazer Beast X10. That is a lot of money, but it is completely okay given the performance. Because the Erazer Beast X10 has enough power for the smooth display of current game crackers – and even reserves for more complex games that will appear in the next one or two years.

Well

M.ith the Medion Erazer Beast X10, the discounter Aldi Nord wants to offer its customers a gaming notebook from September 13, 2020 – and what a notebook! In the COMPUTER BILD test, the Aldi notebook surprised with its high speed and extensive equipment. But one after anonther.

Medion Erazer Beast X10: 300 Hertz display

Manufacturer Medion has given the Erazer Beast X10 a large 17.3-inch display that shows games in Full HD with 1920×1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 300 Hertz. Medion wants to avoid streaks and ghost images in fast action scenes – but also ensure that inputs are implemented with as little delay as possible. The test also showed: The display shows games, films and websites with high color fidelity (96.6 percent), and the response time was extremely short at 6.2 milliseconds. With a size of 394.8×261.8 mm, the Beast X10, which weighs around 2.3 kilograms, is roughly the size of a DIN A3 sheet and at 26 millimeters not exactly thin – but that’s in for a gaming notebook of this performance class Order.

Intel Core i7-10750H

After all, the built-in hardware needs enough air to breathe so that it doesn’t die a miserable heat death. Inside, Medion has built in Intel’s current Comet Lake H processor – the Core i7-10750H. This is a six-core that works with a base clock of 2.6 gigahertz, and boost technology allows individual cores to work briefly at up to 5 gigahertz. New: The CPU does not only achieve this high clock frequency with turbo technology, but with “Thermal Design Velocity Boost”. This means: You may briefly significantly exceed the power loss limitation (TDP; 45 watts). Also good: The processor is supported by a very generous 32 gigabyte RAM.

Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Super

The image reproduction is calculated by Nvidia’s second most powerful graphics chip, the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, which has 8 gigabytes of GDDR6 graphics memory. He is allowed to distribute tasks to 2,304 Cuda units. It also has special units that calculate effects using ray tracing technology. This includes, for example, the dynamic display of soft shadows and light effects. In future games, for example, rapidly rotating headlights will project fine light effects with different intensities into the game environment. At the same time, the chips adjust the strength of the shadows cast by people and objects in real time. The RTX 2070 has Super 40 ray tracing cores so that the performance does not collapse.

Great: The keyboard can be illuminated. Good for gaming in dark rooms. Also good: Thanks to the large construction, the Medion Erazer Beast X10 has a separate number pad.

Really fast

Rytracing effects show games like “Battlefield 5” or “Wolfenstein Youngblood”. And that brought the Medion to the screen at a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels with up to 184 frames per second. So it even has reserves for upcoming, even more complex games. And how fast was the Medion at work? Office and Internet tasks were done in passing, even with exhausting photo and video editing it easily achieved a “very good” partial grade.

M.2 SSD with 1 TB storage

Lots of connections

The Medion Erazer Beast X10 comes with a backlit keyboard and plenty of connections to the customer: For separate keyboards and mice there are two USB 3.2 connections Gen 1 type A, for external SSDs a USB 3.2 socket Gen 2 type A, a USB A C port with Thunderbolt 3 technology is also available, as is an HDMI 2.0 socket for separate monitors. Headset connection and memory card reader are also standard.



Medion Erazer Beast X10: test conclusion

Aldi Nord estimates a proud € 1,999 for the Medion Erazer Beast X10. That is a lot of money, but it is completely okay given the performance. Because the Erazer Beast X10 has enough power for the smooth display of current game crackers – and even reserves for more complex games that will appear in the next one or two years.
