While the i7-12700H + RTX 3050 Ti combo may seem questionable, the US$1,099 price point is undoubtedly enticing. Colorful's latest X15 XS models also come equipped with 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD, plus there is an i5-12500H model for US$999, as well.

Chinese GPU maker Colorful entered the laptop market last year with very affordable gaming models powered by intel Comet Lake-H processors, and now the company is upping the ante adding Alder Lake upgrades plus more powerful RTX 3050 Ti dGPUs, without substantially raising the price tag.

The new COLORFUL X15 XS gaming laptops come with a choice between the Intel Core i5-12500H and i7-12700H processors that can be coupled with 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, as well as an 512 GB NVMe SSD. Nvidia’s RTX 3050 Ti dGPU is complemented by a 15.6-inch FHD display with 144 Hz refresh rate and support for NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate and Adaptive-Sync technology. There is, however, a trade-off in that the screen color gamut is limited to 45% NTSC.

Colorful also provides a revamped cooling system dubbed Storm Blade 2.0 that comes with a Freezing Mode, which overboosts the two coolers for maximum heat dissipation. Other features include:

  • Wi-Fi 6E + BT 5.2 + GbE  connectivity1 MP webcam
  • RGB keyboard with anti-skid
  • Sound Blaster Cinema 6+ sound card
  • Port selection: 2x USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, 1x USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0. MiniDP + HDMI video outs, combo audio jack, GbE jack and microSD card reader
  • 54 Wh battery
  • 1.9 Kg weight and 22.7 mm profile
  • Pine Blue / Mist Gray color options

Price-wise, the i7-12700H model will retail for US$1,099, while the i5-12500H is set to cost US$999.
