Intel NUC X15 LAPAC71H review: The multimedia laptop with an Intel Arc A730M from US$1,050

Latecomer. The X15 aims to woo buyers with its price of around US$1,050 - however, it only features tech from 2022 (Alder Lake). Our review will reveal whether this laptop is a real bargain or if it is simply not worth the money.

After being announced for fall 2022, the Intel NUC X15 - a laptop for gamers and creators - finally sees the light of day a year later. This should mostly be a case of getting rid of goods: The X15 as well as the NUC series as a whole has already been discontinued by Intel. The Schenker distributed laptop's Core i7-12700H, Arc A730M and FHD panel are set, whereas its RAM and SSD(s) can be selected.

Competitors include devices such as the Asus TUF A15 FA507, Gigabyte G5 KE, MSI Cyborg 15 A12VF, Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7630 and the Asus VivoBook Pro 16.

Case & connectivity - The Intel NUC features Thunderbolt 4

The back of the lid and the top part of the matte black case are made from aluminium, and the bottom of the display frame is made from plastic. We didn't note any build issues. Intel relies on a sleek, stripped-back case which shouldn't draw too much attention to itself in professional surroundings. After disassembling the bottom part of the case, you can access the battery (screwed in, not glued on) as well as the rest of the laptop's innards. 

The LAPAC71H features three USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and one USB-C port (Thunderbolt 4/USB 4). The latter doesn't support Power Delivery but it can output a DisplayPort signal. In total, the laptop has two video outputs (1x HDMI, 1x DP). Intel hasn't given the device an SD card reader. Its webcam (0.9 MP, max. 1,280 x 720 pixels, no cover) delivers pretty standard results.

Under optimum conditions (no WiFi devices in close vicinity, short distance between laptop and server PC), it can achieve excellent WiFi data rates. The laptop uses a WiFi 6E chip (Intel AX201). Wired connections are also taken care of by an Intel controller (I225-V; 2.5 GBit/s).

Input devices - A keyboard with RGB lighting

The laptop's chiclet keyboard (RGB illumination) doesn't feature a numerical keypad, even though there would be enough space for one. Its even, smooth keys feature a medium lift and a clear pressure point. The key resistance could do with being a little more crisp. The keyboard doesn't warp when you type on it. In total, Intel has delivered a keyboard fit for everyday use. A clickpad (ca. 13.3 x 8.3 cm) is installed as a mouse replacement and it features a short lift and a clear pressure point.

Display - The LAPAC71H features a high-contrast FHD panel

The fast-reacting 144 Hz panel with an aspect ratio of 16:9 shows no PWM flickering at any brightness level. The 15.6-inch display's (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) brightness and contrast targets have been hit (> 300 cd/m² and 1.000:1). Its relatively high contrast value deserves to be mentioned. Other display options are not available.

* ... smaller is better

Ex works, the display shows relatively good color depiction: With a deviation of around 3.5, its target (DeltaE < 3) was just missed. Calibrating the screen lowers the deviation to 1.9 and leads to more balanced gray tones. The panel can almost completely cover the sRGB color space, but not AdobeRGB or DCI P3. Most of its competitors' panels paint a similar picture. Only the VivoBook's display can cover the P3 color space.

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
7.3 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.3 ms rise
↘ 4 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
7.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.9 ms rise
↘ 3.9 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. » 14 % 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 18752 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel remains legible from every angle. Outside, you can read from the display as long as the sun isn't shining too brightly.

Performance - An Intel team powers the gaming laptop

Core i7-12700H and Arc A730M power the gamer- and creator-directed Intel NUC X15 LAPAC71H. Other options are not available. The laptop can currently be found from around US$1,050. The present variant costs about US$1,280. You will possibly have to factor in additional costs for a Windows license.

Testing conditions

The Intel NUC Software Studio (Control Center) provides three profiles to influence its performance and fan control (see table). The profiles "Performance" (benchmarks) and "Power Saving Mode" (battery tests) were used to perform this test. Its maximum performance is only available after activating the "Benchmark Mode" option. However, the fans then also run permanently at full power.

Processor

The Core i7-12700H's 14 CPU cores (6P, 8E) achieve maximum clock rates of 4.7 GHz (P) and 3.5 GHz (E). Continuous multi-thread performance (CB15 Loop) led the turbo clock to sink from the first to the second run. After this, it remained stable.

The benchmark results were slightly above the CPU average when connected to the mains. In battery mode, its more relevant single-thread performance (213 points) dropped to a lesser extent than its multi-thread performance (1,012 points).
