Preliminary XMG Neo 15 E22 with RTX 3080 Ti (Tongfang GM5AG8W) Review: Is water cooling an interim but viable solution for gaming laptops?

Be like water, my friend. Wow! A gaming laptop with Alder Lake-H, a brand-new Geforce RTX 3080 Ti, and DDR5 RAM. As if that weren't enough, Schenker has installed a water-cooling port on the new Neo 15. The company sent us a pre-production sample of the Neo 15 along with a pre-production model of its XMG Oasis external water-cooling system. We test what they have to offer.

Note: Both the Neo 15 and the Oasis are explicitly pre-production devices. A lot can still change in the run up to release and production flaws can still exist. We recommend readers to note this while considering the benchmarks below. The finished systems could likely perform differently.

Schenker dares to step into the unknown with the new XMG Neo 15 E22. The manufacturer now equips the laptop with a new port for an optional water-cooling system. You can also order the XMG Oasis for 199 Euros when you buy the Neo. This is supposed to reduce the temperatures and noise levels dramatically during gaming or other stress. But will customers accept the purchase and operation of such an additional device? How does the XMG Neo with a hotspur RTX 3080 Ti perform without water cooling? We look into these aspects in our test.

Schenker upgrades the XMG Neo in several areas. The brand new RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU is used instead of an RTX 3080, an Alder Lake-H CPU is used instead of Tiger Lake, and then there is this new port for water cooling. Our configuration costs about 3,442 Euros without the XMG Oasis (the external water cooling), opting for which adds another 199 Euros.

We compare the new Neo 15 E22 with its equally strong predecessor from last year (87% rating). We also created a comparison element named "XMG Neo plus XMG Oasis" and add it to the benchmark comparisons. Additionally, we also consider other high-end gaming laptops for comparison. These include the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G533QS, the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model, the Alienware m15 R6, and also the 17-inch MSI Raider GE76 with Alder Lake and RTX 3080 Ti due to the lack of a CPU/GPU comparison from the new generation.

Case: A port for water cooling!

The casing is largely identical to that of the predecessor — only the water connection at the back is a new addition. Additionally, the power plug has been made more robust. The bottom is made of plastic while the rest of the chassis including the lid and even the display edges are made of matte black aluminum. The base in particular looks very sturdy, but the display lid is also relatively torsion-resistant though its surface strongly attracts fingerprints. The overall build quality is very good.

The design is rather plain, so that the laptop does not only look appropriate on the desk for gamers but also for creative and professional users. There is a strip with small holes in the case at the front edge, which means that the keyboard illumination shines through faintly to the front as an "LED strip".

Despite the additional water circuit, the laptop has not become thicker. It definitely does not belong to the slim crowd, but it is not particularly thick either in view of the extremely potent hardware. Nevertheless, the Razer Blade and the Alienware M15 are noticeably thinner.

The 2.2 kg heft is also moderate considering the hardware. The Razer Blade is 200 g lighter while the Alienware is 300 g heavier.

Equipment: Thunderbolt 4 and water connection!

Short power supply cable
Short power supply cable

While the water port does take up some space, Schenker does not forgo the other ports. From SD card readers to USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 and two audio jacks, everything is on board. The laptop cannot be charged via USB-C. Also, Alder Lake laptops with Thunderbolt 4 are not VR-ready per se because the DisplayPort signals are no longer sent directly to the dGPU but via the iGPU. They are only VR-ready when there is a second USB-C port with a connection to the dGPU or a dedicated DisplayPort.

The ports are quite close to each other, but that is only annoying in certain situations. The considerably cheaper MSI GP66 Leopard 11UH shows how port placement can be better.

A word about the power supply: The cable that goes from the power supply to the laptop is very short and therefore annoying. If you have a slightly higher table and have to pull the cable from the front of the table to the back of the laptop port, the power supply hangs in the air and tightens very annoyingly. A slightly longer cable would have been desirable.

SD Card Reader

The installed SD reader has been one of the slower models for at least two generations. The class average is about twice as fast — if one is installed at all, because many of the competing manufacturers do not even install an SD card reader anymore.

Our test card AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 does not snap in but is only inserted and with half the card protruding outside the slot.

Intel AX201 Wifi Module

The Intel AX201 is the same WLAN module as in the predecessor and can be swapped out if needed.

However, we measured transfer rates of just under 1 GBit/s, whereas the predecessor achieved over 1.5 GBit/s. Whether this can be optimized with driver updates remains to be seen.

Schenker installs a Full HD camera. The color deviations are okay, but the picture is still very noisy even in medium light conditions and looks washed out.

Security

A Kensington lock port is available as is a TPM 2.0 chip. However, a fingerprint sensor is missing.

Accessories

Since this is a pre-production model, no statements can be made about the accessories yet. As is typical for Schenker, the driver CD and USB stick should be included. The XMG Oasis, which is often mentioned in the review, can be purchased for an additional 199 Euros (~$199).

Maintenance

Many screws
Many screws

Overall maintenance is quite simple. The water-cooling system only requires four additional Phillips screws (14 in total) to be removed. After that, the case can be pried open relatively easily.

The fans, the heat pipes including the water circuit, two RAM, and M.2 SSD slots as well as the Wi-Fi module are then accessible. This also shows how easy it would be to implement an effective, additional water circuit for the manufacturer should the model become popular.

Input devices: Optomechanical keyboard


Keyboard

This is how it should look labeled
This is how it should look labeled

The manufacturer uses an optomechanical keyboard with RGB single-key illumination, number pad, N-key rollover and anti-ghosting features. The tactile silent switches have a 2 mm stroke and a 1 mm travel.

The keys trigger with clear feedback at the beginning of the stroke; typing feels good and is quick.

Our pre-production model came with blank keys, so we cannot say anything about the lettering just yet. The unlabeled numpad looks very crowded on the right, and there is no gap with the rest of the keyboard. Nevertheless, the arrow keys are normal in size, even though they are somewhat squeezed between the keyboard and numpad.

The power switch as well as a dedicated switch to toggle through various performance modes are incorporated above the right of the keyboard.

Noise is slightly louder than some of the quieter chiclet keyboards due to the optomechanical switches. However, it is significantly quieter than full-sized mechanical keyboards.

Touchpad

The rather large touchpad measures about 11.6 cm x 7.4 cm and has a very smooth surface, which hardly falters even during slow movements.

Tapping the upper left corner twice deactivates the touchpad and activates it again in the same way, which is convenient.

The integrated buttons are quite crisp and leave a reliable impression. We did not encounter any problems when using the touchpad.

Display: A pre-production model to sort out

Minimal screen bleeding
Minimal screen bleeding

Like its predecessor, Schenker uses a matte IPS display from BOE with a WQHD resolution (2,560 x 1,440 pixels). However, the models differ slightly. Instead of 165 Hz, there is now a 240 Hz panel. However, as in the previous model, the current one falls short of the 350 nits advertised by the manufacturer; we measured only 273 nits on average.

The brightness distribution of the pre-production model is also so bad with only 62%. Schenker assured us that such a panel would not be sold. Thus, there will still be some changes until the release. Therefore, we will not measure the color space for the time being

This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The response times are somewhat on the lower side for gaming. The panel does not use PWM.

Outdoors, the matte coating eliminates most reflections. The black levels and contrast are also good enough to still see the screen's content well, at least on cloudy days and in the shade.

Viewing angle stability is good. Even at extreme angles, the decrease in picture quality is rather low.

Performance: High!

We are dealing with absolutely high-end hardware here, especially the new RTX 3080 Ti which can run with at a maximum TGP of 175 W via the Control Center. The new Alder Lake Intel Core i7-12700H processor and, for the first time, 32 GB of DDR5 RAM make the "new Neo" a real high-performance gaming laptop.

Test conditions

For the best benchmark results, we enabled the Overboost mode in the Control Center and also maximized the CPU's PL values in the manual performance settings.

For the GPU, we set the Dynamic Boost to 25 W. With the Dynamic Boost set, you can no longer set the GPU's TGP yourself. The option is grayed out and is fixed at 150 W, so the maximum 175 W is maxed out in total.

The XMG Oasis also offers several fan profiles (Very Quiet, Quiet, and Balanced). Unless specified, we used the Balanced mode for the best cooling performance.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-12700H is a high-end CPU based on the new Alder Lake architecture. It has a total of 14 cores, which are divided into performance (6 P-cores) and efficiency cores (8 E-cores) for the first time like in ARM processors. Only the P-cores support Hyperthreading, so you get a total of 20 threads. An Intel Xe graphics unit with 96 EUs and a clock of up to 1.4 GHz is integrated into the CPU.

In the one-hour Cinebench loop, the CPU goes head-to-head with its slightly higher clocked sister model Core i9-12900HK and even wins it by a narrow margin over time. Only the Core i9-12900HK's output power is higher.

The performance is minimally higher with Oasis than without, and the small performance drop seen in the beginning does not happen. However, there is no difference in short-term performance.

The package power is a maximum of 115 W in the first run and only 100 W later on. With Oasis, the package power does not drop to 100 W but remains quite stable at 115 W.

The Core i7-12700H beats its Tiger Lake predecessor by a whole 30% in the multi-thread test! The same applies to the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX in the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15. The two Alder Lake CPUs are also virtually on par in the other benchmarks and lead the charts.

More than 50% of the CPU's performance is lost in battery mode. Only 1,214 points are achieved in Cinebench R15 Multi compared to 2,824 points on DC power.

System performance

The scores in PCMark 10 are not convincing across the board. The Razer Blade 15 overtakes the Neo 15 in the overall score. On the other hand, the Neo 15 is only just behind the MSI GE76 Raider with similar hardware in the Digital Content Creation test, but the laptop falls a bit behind in Essentials and Productivity. In the latter, the Neo with the Oasis attachment performs about 10% better.

Our pre-production model from China initially did not have an SSD. Schenker sent us a fast Samsung 980 Pro with unfortunately only 250 GB for the tests, which will almost never be installed due to its small size and does not even appear in our SSD best list so far.

With Windows 11 Home installed, only about 60 to 80 GB remained for other programs. The production model will probably have at least 512 GB.
