The author used AIDA64’s built-in stress test to continue the dual-bake machine test on the CPU and GPU of this gaming notebook.
(Note: The room temperature when the author was testing was 28℃)
Standby state (Hurricane mode)
Baking machine status (Hurricane mode)
After turning on the dual baking machine, the CPU temperature of this gaming notebook will instantly soar to 98°C, directly triggering the notebook temperature protection mechanism, and then the CPU temperature will drop to more than 80°C. After 5 minutes of baking machine, the CPU temperature stabilized at 84 degrees Celsius and the GPU stabilized at 80 degrees Celsius.

Starscream color calibration instrument test: 99% sRGB color gamut coverage is satisfactory
Using Starscream’s color correction device, the author also conducted a professional performance test on the display screen of this gaming notebook.
Item 1: Color gamut test
(Introduction to test items) Color gamut refers to the range of colors that a certain device can express, that is, the range of colors that can be expressed by various screen display devices, printers or printing devices. The larger the color gamut value, the more colors the device can display.
This game book has 99% sRGB and 78% AdobeRGB color gamut coverage. For gaming laptops, such screen color gamut performance is very good.
Item 2: Color accuracy test
(Introduction to test items) The colors displayed on the screen often deviate from the colors seen by human eyes in real life. The smaller the color difference, the better the display of course.
When △E≤1, the human eye can hardly distinguish the difference between the two colors;
When 1<△E<3, the human eye needs to be able to distinguish subtle color differences after comparison;
When △E≥3, the human eye can distinguish the color difference and consider it as two similar colors.
When △E≥5, most human eyes can see the color difference and consider it as a completely different color.
The average △E is 0.96, and there is only one color with △E≥3. Obviously, the color accuracy of this screen is also quite good, which can fully meet many professional office applications.
As a high-performance thin and light gaming laptop equipped with a Core i7-10875H octa-core processor, the overall performance of the mechanic[Zhankong]F117-X is undoubtedly very good.
