Manufacturers increasingly try to attract gamers and professionals at the same time - Schenker XMG Pro 17 (Clevo PC70HS) review
In the office segment, ultrabooks and other ultra-slim laptops have become the mainstream for a long time, since they are particularly mobile and performance is only secondary. Increasingly, manufacturers now also try to attract professional customers at the same time in the gaming area. Of course, the attempt to squeeze gaming hardware into ultra-slim cases will also bring some disadvantages, but on the other hand, the laptops become more mobile and the manufacturers can target two customer segments at the same time.
While Razer of course took the lead, with the XMG Pro 17, Schenker also transfers the idea of a hybrid of ultra-slim gaming laptop and slim workstation for professionals to large 17-inch laptops. However, you shouldn't expect the highest gaming performance in the slim metal case, since the laptop can become fairly loud and hot, even when throttled.
On the other hand, you get a large and still mobile work and gaming device with a very good 4K display that is also suitable for image processing and video editing. The battery life is also impressive for the size and hardware used. But one thing that limits the mobility is the significant 3D performance drop in battery operation. Of about 100 fps in "The Witcher 3 Ultra" (Full HD), only about 8 - 10 fps remain in battery mode.
So there is a lot of potential for innovation for future technologies here. You can find the full text of the ultra-slim Schenker XMG Pro 17 gaming laptop review here.
