Captiva Advanced Gaming I74-121 (Clevo V150RND) review: An inexpensive gaming laptop with a powerful RTX 4060

Gaming from Germany. Captiva may not have as well-known a name as Asus, Lenovo, Dell, Acer and similar but still, more and more of the German manufacturer's laptops and PCs are beginning to show up on websites. With its "Advanced Gaming", the manufacturer markets a gaming laptop series and it is high time for us to put it to the test!

On a select few online shops you can begin to see (gaming) laptops from Captiva, but who is this manufacturer? Captiva is a subsidiary company of Ecom Trading GmbH, a German IT wholesaler based in Dachau. By the sounds of it, most of their laptops are manufactured in China. As we have never previously tested laptops from Captiva, it is high time we did so!

You can find 17-inch and 15-inch versions of the Captiva laptop which mainly differ in hardware setup. Only the 17-inch ones optionally come with an i9-13900HX - the 15-inch devices only come with an i5-13500H installed. In addition, our test sample is fitted with an RTX 4060. Alternatively, you can get the laptop with an RTX 4070 and the 17-inch version can also be had with an RTX 4080.

Our configuration retails for around US$1,800. Competitors include other introductory gaming laptops like the MSI Cyborg 15, Dell G15 5530, Lenovo Legion Slim 5 16APH8, Lenovo LOQ 15 and the Schenker XMG Core 15 M22

Case - The Captiva barebone is a secret (Clevo)

Why no infos on the barebone model (Clevo)?
Why no infos on the barebone model (Clevo)?

When asked, Captiva refused to tell us which barebone is used - apparently they are made "especially for Captiva". However, a sticker on the bottom reveals to us that the manufacturer Clevo is involved. It is unclear to us why Captiva is withholding this information. We identified the Clevo barebone as being the Clevo V150RND.

The inner case of the laptop is reminiscent of the Gigabyte G5 when it is folded open. Its keyboard is slightly recessed and the layout is similar, too - although, it doesn't seem to be the exact same one.

On the outside, both models look quite different, even if their footprints are similar. The Captiva laptop is quite a bit thicker than the G5. On the top, there are blue, slanted LED strips set into the matte black surface - in one corner, the silver "Captiva" lettering shines. Furthermore, the top of the I74-121 isn't totally even - instead, it has a slight bend or curve.

Plastic is the only material used but its base is still stiff enough and you can't elicit any cracking noises from it when you try to bend it. We didn't note any unusual gaps and its build is generally quite good.

The wide hinge is good but not excellent - it only allows for a maximum opening angle of 135 to 140 degrees.

As a result of its minimalist design, the Captiva laptop is one of the smallest devices within the comparison field, especially when it comes to depth. In turn, it is also one of the thickest laptops in this comparison. The manufacturer has stated a thickness of 28 mm but we measured at least 29 mm along the middle edge on the back of the device.

It has an average weight - the Schenker and MSI devices are slightly lighter and the rest is heavier, especially the Dell G15.

Connectivity - Slightly outdated

At first glance, the laptop features all the most important connectivity options. Upon second glance, it is clear that this isn't the case - or at least that they are outdated.

One of its USB-A ports is still type 2.0, Thunderbolt is missing and it also doesn't have an SD card reader. At least, the laptop is VR-ready thanks to its MiniDP connection. One of the two USB-A 3.2 ports has Gen2 speed and the other one only Gen1. Which one is the faster connection cannot be identified from the outside.

Both the USB-A ports on the left side are placed very close together, meaning thick USB sticks can't be connected next to each other. All the other ports have enough space in between. However, the network connection is on the right side - a bit annoying if you use a mouse with your right hand.

Communication

The Captiva laptop's Intel AX211 module supports WiFi 6E, meaning it can receive and output using 2.4 GHz, 6 GHz and 6GHz frequencies. Using 6 GHz, its transfer speeds are good, although, when using 5 GHz, the laptop is the weakest within the comparison field.

Webcam

Its webcam isn't entirely up-to-date either. Instead of a modern Full HD webcam, the laptop uses an outdated HD webcam with a resolution of 720p.

Its color deviation is nice and low but even in good lighting conditions, the picture is quite grainy and doesn't show much detail.

Safety

TPM is on board thanks to the Intel chip and the device features a Kensington lock - but as is the case in lots of gaming laptops, the Captiva device doesn't feature a fingerprint scanner.

Scope of delivery and warranty

Aside from the laptop itself and the proprietary power supply, the scope of delivery includes all the usual paperwork, 2 small screws as well as a driver CD. The latter is a bit useless seeing as how the laptop doesn't have a CD drive - a driver USB stick like the one Schenker includes would've made much more sense.

Maintenance

From the 14 cross screws in total (which are all thankfully the same size), one is situated beneath a warranty seal. According to Captiva, the warranty expires as soon as you open up the device. The manufacturer gave us permission to break the seal.

After removing the screws, it is super easy to take off the bottom plate without the need for any tools. Underneath, you can see the cooling system consisting of two fans and lots of copper in between, the two RAM banks of which one is unoccupied, the swappable SSD as well as the swappable WiFi module.

Instead of a second NVMe slot, there is a SATA slot which can accommodate 2.5-inch drives. Apart from the warranty seal, it is very easy to conduct maintenance work on this laptop.

Input devices - Solid and fit for everyday use

Keyboard

Its keyboard layout is functional and without any issues. The arrow keys are the normal size (ca. 15 x 15 mm), the number pad has smaller keys (15 x 12.6 mm) and seamlessly connects on the right side. On the top right, there is an extra button for the power.

The keys have a comfortable, not-too-short lift with decent feedback. Noises produced by typing are very moderate. Furthermore, the key labelling is very legible and it is supported in darker lighting conditions through its one-zone multicolor backlighting.

Touchpad

As a result of the number pad, the touchpad (12 x 7.2 cm) is situated slightly to the left, which feels right. It can stick a bit during slow movement or if your hands are sweating but in normal situations, your fingers glide smoothly over the surface. 

The integrated keys also have nice levels of feedback - the click noise is a bit louder but it isn't annoying.

Display - The Advanced Gaming only has Full HD

Captiva has installed a 144 Hz Full HD panel from BOE into the laptop. We tested the same panel within the Gigabyte A5 K1. Here, the display is a little brighter (324 vs. 281 nits) but in turn, its black value and contrast are slightly poorer. Its illumination of 90 per cent is even enough.

The panel's reaction speeds are good, we didn't note any PWM flickering and there is only a small amount of backlight bleeding which is barely noticeable.

The BOE panel doesn't have a terribly great color space coverage. Even sRGB is only covered by 93 per cent, DisplayP3 and AdobeRGB by about 65 per cent.

Ex works, the panel is calibrated sub-optimally and its color deviations are quite high. A calibration with the help of an XRite color measurement device and Calman software lowered the color and grayscale DeltaE values significantly. Before, deviations were above 4 and after, they measured around 1.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
7.55 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.7 ms rise
↘ 3.85 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.422 ms rise
↘ 2.578 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18719 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outside, you can read from the screen just fine in the shade. Its matte surface prevents most reflections and its brightness is sufficient at over 300 nits. You will definitely have to avoid direct sunlight, however.

Performance - The i5-13500H with an RTX 4060 (140 W)

Our 15-inch model is fitted with a Core i5-13500H, an RTX 4060, 16 GB RAM and a 1-TB SSD, making it an introductory level to mid-range gaming laptop. Its 16:9 Full HD display and its relatively low price suggest it can be classed more as a budget device. 

Alternatively, you can get the laptop with an RTX 4070 instead of an RTX 4060 - but only the 17-inch models give you the option to choose an RTX 4080 as well as the significantly faster Intel HX processors.

 

Testing conditions

Control Center is installed onto the Captiva. There are the usual settings to control performance, keyboard, webcam and so on. Four performance modes can be chosen from: performance mode, entertainment mode, power-saving mode and silent mode.

To achieve the best benchmark results, we selected the performance mode, however, we will also be speaking a bit more about the other modes during our tests.

The Intel Core i5-13500H is a mid-range CPU from the Raptor Lake H series released in January 2023. The CPU features four performance cores and eight efficiency cores. This adds up to 16 threads, as only the P-cores support hyper-threading - they clock at 2.6 to 4.7 GHz (single-core boost, multicore-boost allows for a maximum of 4.6 GHz). The E-cores clock at 1.9 to 3.5 GHz.

In our Cinebench R15 loop, its performance remained very stable and we didn't note any drop in performance after the first runs.

Over the course of all the CPU tests, the i5-13500H in the Captiva achieved slightly above-average results compared to all the other laptops with the same CPU in our database. The Dell G15 with its HX CPU is still quite a bit faster but the Lenovo devices with current AMD CPUs only had a slight advantage in speed.

In battery mode, the TGP sinks to around 20 watts and the CPU's performance drops by about 50 per cent.

System Performance

The Captiva laptop's PCMark score was as expected. In the Essentials subtest, it even came out on top. In turn, the laptop weakened in productivity, which is likely due to its slightly slower RAM, as shown by AIDA. All-in-all, the device achieved upper average results for a gaming laptop.

DPC latency

When opening multiple browser tabs or our website, the Captiva showed no issues - even with multiple tabs. The first small issues were seen when opening our 4K/60 fps YouTube video. The latencies were relatively low - with the exception of one dropped frame, the video was played smoothly.

Storage devices

Captiva doesn't show any weaknesses when it comes to mass storage. In our test model, a very well-known Samsung SSD 980 with 1 TB of storage is installed. It may still be from the PCIe 3.0 generation, but it is one of its best models. By now, there are also some faster SSDs (as our comparison shows), but this storage device still achieved upper average results.

Inside the Captiva, the SSD performed about 10 per cent faster than the average model (Samsung 980 1 TB) from our database and in addition, its performance was constant over a longer period of time and thermal throttling was never an issue.
