86% Review Schenker XMG A523 (Clevo W350ST) Notebook | Notebookcheck
There is something for everyone. Schenker's XMG A523 offers cutting edge hardware in a plain casing. While the GeForce GTX 765M is not removable, the other components can be configured to one’s liking. This new Clevo barebone upgarde for the new Intel processors and chipset is put through its paces for you readers.
80% Schenker Notebooks XMG A523 review - first 4th-gen Intel Core 'Haswell' laptop tested
Source: PC Advisor English
The performance of both the Haswell Intel Core i7 processor and the nVidia GeForce GTX765M are impressive, and promise good things for the next generation of laptops. However, the gross weight of the A523 remains puzzling. It's a shame that Schenker doesn't invest as much in the style and design of its laptops as it does with specifying latest-spec processors inside.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


84.33%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
