Fully exploits the RTX 3070: Schenker XMG Neo 17

Schenker XMG Neo 17: Nothing done halfway
Schenker XMG Neo 17: Nothing done halfway
Out of the Ampere laptops that we have tested so far, the XMG Neo 17 from Schenker Technologies came out on top with the best performance. Thanks to the high TDP, the RTX 3070 laptop GPU even computes faster than many RTX 3080 devices.

Schenker does everything right with the new version of the XMG Neo 17 from a pure performance standpoint. Instead of relying on a GPU with the lowest possible TDP like other manufacturers, Schenker lets the graphics card's potential fully unfold. In Overboost mode, for example, the RTX 3070 runs on a maximum of 140 watts (including Dynamic Boost), which ensures excellent performance. This is matched by a blazing-fast Cezanne-based AMD processor (R7 5800H or R9 5900HS).

Thanks to the generous performance, almost all modern games can be played smoothly at full details on the optional WQHD display. Not only does the latter score points with 165 Hz, but also with good brightness, nice color reproduction, and a quite fast response time.

The big drawback of the powerful hardware is the high noise development. In 3D mode, the Neo 17 gets so loud that you can hardly avoid needing to wear a headset.

All further strengths and weaknesses of the 17-incher can be found in our review.
