Mechanical revolution titanium tantalum plus appearance analysis
As the flagship gaming notebook, the Mechanical Revolution Titanium Plus is equipped with RTX 3070 notebook GPU, unlocking power consumption of 140W, which is currently the highest on the market. In terms of appearance, the mechanical revolution Titanium Tantalum Plus adopts a brand-new mold design, a 17.3-inch super high-resolution and high-resolution screen, and at the same time enhances the heat dissipation capacity of the whole machine to achieve higher wattage performance release.
Unlike the past gaming notebooks of the mechanical revolution, Titanium Plus’s design language is more radical, and the body lines are still simple. However, the details are full of power to emphasize the product’s performance and gaming notebook positioning.
The first is the A-side. Titanium-tantalum Plus is made of aluminum-magnesium alloy, and the surface has been anodized and sandblasted. The hand feels delicate and smooth, and the metal texture is full. There are two inwardly tightening grooves on both sides of the A-side. , With the light blue metal Logo, make the A-side look more layered.
On the C side, in addition to the RGB backlit keyboard, the most attractive is the oversized touchpad. Compared with the previous generation X10Ti-S, the titanium-tantalum Plus touchpad area is increased by 39%. A quick switch is added to the corner, the left button can quickly close the touchpad, and the right button can close the left half of the touchpad to avoid accidental touch during typing.
In terms of the keyboard, Titanium Tantalum Plus uses a 101-key design. Although it does not use an optical axis mechanical keyboard, the keyboard feels good, the key travel is not short, and the pressing force is moderate. In terms of backlighting, you can customize it through the built-in software of the system. Various colors and breathing patterns are available.
In the upper left and right corner of the C side, there are two RGB light bands. You can also customize various colors and blinking modes through the software. Each light strip is also divided into seven areas, and each area can be customized with multiple colors to achieve a more immersive game (light) play (light) body (dirt) inspection (dyeing).
There is also a performance button at the keyboard’s top right and the power switch, and the status light. Click to quickly adjust the operating mode of the computer, including office, game, and Cyclonus.
In terms of screen, the screen size of Mechanical Revolution Titanium Tantalum Plus has reached 17.3 inches. In the field of notebooks, this screen can be attributed to a “giant screen.” The advantages of a large screen are self-evident. In addition to playing games, it has a broader view. More content can also be seen when drawing in the office.
Of course, the mechanical revolution titanium tantalum plus has not only a large screen, but also excellent display effect, including 2560 x 1440 resolution, 165hz refresh rate, 100% sRGB color gamut, DC dimming support, Δ e < 2, response time of 3-5ms, which is the standard high resolution and high gamut electronic competition screen configuration. It is not difficult to see that with the 30 series mobile laptop GPU’s popularity, 2K 165hz is expected to become the standard configuration for game players.
In terms of weight and measurements, as a gaming notebook, the Mechanical Revolution Titanium Plus has a length, width, and height of 392 x 260 x 24mm, and its weight is 5.30lbs. Among the many gaming notebooks, the Mechanical Revolution Titanium Plus belongs to the “light and thin” direction. “That’s it. Because Titanium Tantalum Plus uses a 17.3-inch large screen, the size of the body is larger than the traditional 13, 15-inch notebook. It is difficult to fit in some smaller backpacks, but the large screen brings more immersive gaming experience. Every player knows this.
On the D side, the mechanical revolution Titanium Tantalum Plus adopts a large-area opening design. Inside the body is a more luxurious dual-fan, four-outlet, and five-heat pipe structure to achieve more efficient heat dissipation.
The interface is located on both sides of the device. On the left side of the device is a USB 3.1, earphone, and microphone interface.
On the right side, there are two USB 3.1 and SD card readers. There are security locks, power ports, USB Type-C, HDMI 2.1, and RJ45 network ports that support DP 1.4 protocol video output on the back of the body, which can meet players’ daily needs.
Next, IT House talks about the different aspects of the new generation of GeForce RTX 30 series mobile notebook GPUs for Titanium Tantalum Plus’s mechanical revolution.
The first is the new Ampere architecture innovation, which brings three significant improvements:
It brings twice the throughput of FP32 and the best energy consumption ratio, significantly improving performance
The new dedicated RT core is twice the throughput of the previous generation
The new third-generation Tensor Core has twice the throughput of the previous generation and can power NVIDIA DLSS to accelerate performance.
This brings about three experience upgrades:
Optimize for the latest game computing requirements, support ray tracing, AI computing, and traditional rendering concurrent execution, significantly improve efficiency;
Ray tracing has become a new standard for games, and the ray tracing performance of the Ampere architecture has also reached a new level
DLSS can significantly improve game performance without increasing system power consumption and maintaining game graphics quality, and the gamebook is entirely moving towards the 2K era.
Ray tracing image quality contrast
When it comes to NVIDIA ray tracing, we are very familiar with it. In short, with ray tracing, the game can achieve more realistic shadow and reflection effects, such as the reflection of the water surface and the reflection on the glass. In the game, these scenes can be close to the real physical locations seen by human eyes. The RTX 30 series mobile notebook GPU dramatically improves the performance and makes the game have better frame rate performance when ray tracing is on.
IT House here takes the currently popular “Cyberpunk 2077” game as an example. This game has many “neon” lights, ambient lighting, and diffuse lights, a standard ray tracing game. In Nvidia’s actual measurement demonstration, we can see the apparent difference between ray tracing on and off through the comparison chart.
Ray tracing off
Ray tracing on
As shown in the above picture, the yellow frame’s details are looking more natural. For example, the window glass in the center of the image reflects the vehicles on the street and simulates light’s physical behavior, just like the world we are in So real.
Another example is the picture below
The RTX 30 series mobile notebook GPU brings dynamic boost 2.0 dynamic acceleration technology and DLSS technology in addition to ray tracing.
140W GPU power release
The first is dynamic boost 2.0. In the traditional gamebook, the power of CPU and GPU is fixed, but the game and creative applications are involved. The requirements of the system will change with the frame. According to the demand, in active boost 2.0, AI will automatically balance the power consumption of CPU, GPU, and GPU memory.
The AI in Dynamic Boost 2.0 manages power on a per-frame basis to achieve the best performance. Whether the application is loaded with CPU, GPU or video memory, the result is a more obvious performance improvement than before. For example, in the game or 3D rendering, the system can be allocated to GPU, the power consumption between GPU and CPU is dynamic, and the total power consumption tends to be stable. This is also why the single baking GPU can reach 140W (125w + 15W) in the mechanical revolution titanium tantalum plus machine.
Comparison of image quality and performance of DLSS
More than 30 games currently use NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling Technology). It will support more games in the future. This technology uses AI and RTX Tensor Cores to bring up to 2 times the performance improvement under the same power consumption. To process one frame at 1440 resolution, a single GPU needs to calculate nearly 4 million pixels. NVIDIA DLSS only needs to Process a small number of pixels to improve efficiency and performance.
Take the terminal game of “Defense Cold” announced on NVIDIA’s official website as an example. After DLSS is turned on, the frame rate has been increased from 46FPS to 69FPS. While the frame rate has been increased, it also provides clearer image details. For example, on the right side of the figure below, you can see clearer patterns and textures after the ground is enlarged in the game.
The technology of ray tracing has high requirements on GPU performance. When ray tracing is turned on at high resolution, it is not easy to guarantee the game’s playability without DLSS. Therefore, DLSS is the key to ensuring the playability of high-resolution ray tracing games. . In general, with NVIDIA DLSS technology, players can enjoy ray tracing and ultra-high resolution gaming experience.
All in all, the GeForce RTX 30 series notebook GPUs have brought tremendous performance and experience upgrades to the Mechanical Revolution Titanium and Tantalum Plus gaming notebooks. So how does the Mechanical Revolution Titanium and Tantalum Plus perform? Later, IT House will bring a measured experience. Stay tuned.
