Recensione breve del Convertibile Microsoft Surface Book con Performance Base (GTX 965M)

Pompato. Avere un premium significa sempre migliorare? La nuova GPU Nvidia Pascal non sembra reggere le promesse nel nuovo Surface Book ma Microsoft è riuscita a inserire un chip Maxwell sotto il cofano offrendo molte prestazioni. Ci è riuscita?

Tempi di risposta del Display

I tempi di risposta del display mostrano quanto sia veloce lo schermo a cambaire da un colore all'altro. Tempi di risposta lenti possono creare sovrapposizioni negloi oggetti in movimento. Specialmente i giocatori patiti del 3D dovrebbero usare uno schermo con tempi di risposta bassi.
       Tempi di risposta dal Nero al Bianco
37 ms ... aumenta ↗ e diminuisce ↘ combinato↗ 21 ms Incremento
↘ 16 ms Calo
Lo schermo mostra tempi di risposta lenti nei nostri tests e sarà insoddisfacente per i gamers.
In confronto, tutti i dispositivi di test variano da 0.8 (minimo) a 240 (massimo) ms. » 94 % di tutti i dispositivi è migliore.
Questo significa che i tempi di risposta rilevati sono peggiori rispetto alla media di tutti i dispositivi testati (24.5 ms).
       Tempo di risposta dal 50% Grigio all'80% Grigio
61 ms ... aumenta ↗ e diminuisce ↘ combinato↗ 28 ms Incremento
↘ 33 ms Calo
Lo schermo mostra tempi di risposta lenti nei nostri tests e sarà insoddisfacente per i gamers.
In confronto, tutti i dispositivi di test variano da 0.8 (minimo) a 636 (massimo) ms. » 96 % di tutti i dispositivi è migliore.
Questo significa che i tempi di risposta rilevati sono peggiori rispetto alla media di tutti i dispositivi testati (38.8 ms).

Sfarfallio dello schermo / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

Per ridurre la luminosità dello schermo, alcuni portatili accendono e spengono la retroilluminazione in rapida successione - un metodo chiamato Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). Questa frequenza di ciclo a livello ideale non dovrebbe essere percepibile dall'occhi umano. Se tale frequenza è troppo bassa, gli utenti con occhi sensibili potrebbero stancarsi gli occhi o avere mal di testa o anche notare uno sfarfallio.
flickering dello schermo / PWM non rilevato

In confronto: 51 % di tutti i dispositivi testati non utilizza PWM per ridurre la luminosita' del display. Se è rilevato PWM, una media di 17635 (minimo: 5 - massimo: 2500000) Hz è stata rilevata.

Surface Book with Performance Base: more powerful thanks to the GeForce GTX 965M
Surface Book with Performance Base: more powerful thanks to the GeForce GTX 965M

The GeForce chip inside the keyboard is barely able to utilize its full turbo boost potential, and it remains at its default 950 MHz frequency when running The Witcher 3. While the impact on actual games will be rather limited, the impact on synthetic benchmarks is very noticeable: it's the reason why the device is seemingly slower than other GTX 965M-powered laptops.

Most modern games will be unplayable in FHD at high details. If you're ok with this you get above-average performance for this level of mobility. Don't, however, expect the Surface Book to keep up with 45 W multimedia notebooks - in order to achieve that Microsoft would have to improve the cooling and replace the GPU with Nvidia's Pascal.

Gamers will have to think twice before purchasing the device. Our review unit will set you back around 2,600 Euros in Europe and around $2,400 plus taxes in the United States. In comparison, the same amount of money will get you two Acer V15 notebooks with GTX 1060 GPU. Gamers aren't Microsoft's target audience for the device, though, and the company's focus is on design, architecture, CAD, video, and preprint professionals that require plenty of GPU power for work.

Not a Workstation

The Surface Book certainly isn't a real workstation. Not only does it lack the necessary CAD/CAM certifications, but it also features a 15 W CPU, which is a no-go in this particular market. Thus, HP, Dell, and Lenovo won't have to fear any real competition here.

The Surface Book's strength is its mobility: Undocking and taking the 13-inch tablet and stylus with you wherever you go. This is where the Surface Book truly and literally shines, with its very bright IPS display (almost 100% sRGB-coverage), its excellent input devices, its high-quality case, its very good cameras and microphone, and an impressive battery life to boot. Docking and undocking worked flawlessly during our tests.

Its weaknesses are the lack of ports and LTE and its high price, which puts it way beyond the realm of what consumers are willing to spend for a notebook. A model with FHD display, integrated graphics, and a 256 GB SSD for $1,000 could take the market by storm. Unfortunately, the cheapest Surface Book with Core i5-6300U and a 128 GB SSD is at least $1,499 plus taxes.

External Thunderbolt 3 GPU

In theory, every notebook/tablet/2-in-1 convertible with Thunderbolt 3 can be upgraded with an external graphics dock offered by the likes of Razer, Acer, and Asus. That way, even ultraportable devices such as the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 or the regular XPS 13 can be transformed into gaming powerhouses. If you want to read more, take a look at our Razer review. Unfortunately, Acer has stopped selling their eGPU enclosure, and Asus and Razer are asking for $500 and $600 for their models, respectively ($450 for the Razer model when bundled with a notebook). That's without a graphics card, mind you.

The following alternatives are based on the newer TI3-Controller which, however, still suffers from various bugs and compatibility issues (see here for more details):

Alternative 2-in-1 with dedicated graphics?

There are no other docking solutions that include a GPU underneath the keyboard available on the market as we speak. The often-mentioned Lenovo Yoga 710-14 might seem like a low-cost alternative but, at least according to the Lenovo Forums, it drives its users crazy with its obnoxious fan. HP's 15-inch Spectre x360 is far from portable.
