Medion has just updated its range of gaming laptops. The German manufacturer, which seeks to win over users with an interesting balance between quality and price, presented this Monday the Erazer Beast X40, a proposal that stands out for its graphic power and optional liquid cooling.

We are facing an ambitious proposal that not only tries to raise its specifications to the next level to satisfy the needs of the most demanding gamers, but it is also a laptop whose generous dimensions do not go unnoticed. Let’s see the characteristics of the new brand.

Under the hood we find the latest from Intel. We are talking about the 13th generation Core i9-13900HX with 24 cores. The heart of the computer is accompanied by 32 GB of DDR5 RAM at 4800 MHz, a key piece to run certain heavy games.

Another of the outstanding features of this laptop has to do with the graphics section. We already said it at the beginning of this year, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 they were about to arrive. Finally, the rollout is happening, and the Erazer Beast X40 is one of the stars.

The equipment of the German manufacturer incorporates an RTX 4090 (maximum TDP of 175 W) inside. It is a proposal that includes the benefits of the Ada Lovelace architecture, the improved performance of DLSS 3 and the advantages of 16 GB GDDR6 memory to offer a good gaming experience.

It should be noted that this laptop model also has a second version that is a little less ambitious in terms of graphics. Users will be able to spend a little less money (3,499 euros) for an Erazer Beast X40 with a GeForce RTX4080 with 12 GB of video memory.

Medion says that the hardware keeps its temperature in check thanks to a liquid metal cooling system, an alternative that is technically a evolution of traditional thermal paste. It also offers an optional alternative for the most demanding users of this laptop.

We already know that the higher the power, the higher the temperature and the computer sets certain limits to protect the internal components. In this sense, to unlock between 10 and 15% additional performance in games it will be necessary to have a liquid cooling system.

The system, which must be purchased separately, connects to the back of the laptop through a special tube that circulates the liquid. This accessory will offer us the possibility of play with that extra performancebut the price to pay will be to have a kind of independent tower not too discreet to one side of the team.

If we talk about the design, despite being a gaming computer, its lines are sober and, as we mentioned at the beginning, it feels huge and heavy. At the keyboard level we find an ‘Ultra Low Profile’ Cherry mechanical solution with luminosity at different levels.

Our colleague Miguel López has been at the Medion presentation in Paris and has had the opportunity to test the laptop. He tells us that this choice by the manufacturer is promising, but he perceives that the mechanical feel of the keyboard is total, being this little quiet when pressing the keys.
