SCHENKER XMG Core 15 (M24) laptop review: A premium, metal-cased gaming machine from Germany

A more affordable Fusion 15. The new XMG Core 15 is housed in the same, premium and stylish metal case as the XMG Focus 15. This makes it potentially interesting for creators as well as simultaneously costing quite a bit less than the Fusion. We examine where Schenker has cut costs and whether the new Core 15 is a good tip for price-conscious creators and gamers.

According to Schenker, the current Core 15 is a slightly pared-down Fusion 15. The advantage is a significantly cheaper price, however, despite this, the Core 15 keeps its sleek metal case which lends it a good look and feel. The manufacturer calls it "Undercover Gaming" because the aluminum case also ought to appeal to creators without necessarily screaming gaming laptop. 

Nevertheless, the Core 15 is not only pared-down, it also changes a few things. For example, the laptop processor is a current generation AMD Ryzen instead of an Intel Gen14 HX CPU which lowers the price somewhat but is, by no means, worse.

Since there are no longer virtually any 15-inch laptops equipped with a current CPU, we are comparing the 15.3-inch Core 15 with the 16-inch gaming and multimedia laptops which come with an RTX 4060 such as the Dell G16, the Lenovo Legion 5i 16 G9, as well as the HP Victus 16. In addition, we have, of course, drawn comparisons with the Fusion 15 and also taken a look at what has changed since last year's Schenker XMG Pro 15 E23.

Watch out: Our new rating system is V8 which means the scores are now lower. With the old V7 rating system V7, the Core 15 scored between 88 and 89 percent. You can find out what is new here.

Update July 16, 2024: We subsequently repeated the battery tests because some background processes apparently prevented better runtimes in the first run. The battery life achieved in the second attempt is significantly higher, so we have included this as a positive pro point in the verdict. In addition, the rating increases from 83 to 84 percent.

Case & features: A stylish aluminum case

Since we have already extensively tested the visual features, we refer you to our XMG Fusion 15 review for further information regarding the case, maintenance, ports and input devices. Here we will only list the changes to these aspects. 

Size comparison

At the moment, 15-inch gaming machines with a current CPU appear to have almost died out and one of the Core 15's unique features is its unusual 15.3-inch format. The manufacturer argues that current 16-inch laptops are hardly any bigger meaning you can now get a larger display in in nearly the same-sized case. 

However, with the Core 15, you can see that some of the 16-inch competitors are noticeably bigger. On top of that, they are also thicker and heavier. The latter is the case despite the competition using significantly more plastic. This is an area in which the Core 15 scores a plus point for mobility.

Ports

Unlike the Intel CPU-equipped Fusion, the AMD Core does without Thunderbolt 4 and USB 4. Instead, you only get USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 although it does offer Power Delivery at up to 100 W (20V, 5 A).

There is one additional advantage over the Fusion: With the Core, you get a dedicated mini DisplayPort that is absent in the Fusion.

One interesting side note: At the beginning of 2023, our recently reviewed Core 15 was still equipped with a water connection for external cooling which went by the name of XMG Oasis. These ports are now absent in the newer and slimmer Core 15 and it appears XMG has given up on experimenting with this production series.

SD Card Reader

The SD reader takes full-sized cards, however, there is no locking mechanism which means the cards stick out. 

Unfortunately, the performance of the already average card reader found in the Fusion 15 has halved again meaning the Core 15 belongs to some of the slowest performers in this category.

Communication

The manufacturer informed us after receiving the laptop that our review model was accidentally fitted with an Intel AX211 WiF, just like the Fusion 15. This isn't actually the case with the Core 15.

Normally, the Intel AX200 comes as standard in the Core 15 and, for only an additional 15 dollars, you get the AMD Wi-Fi 6E RZ616 with Wi-Fi 6E. However, we are currently unable to test its speed.

Input devices - Space used to the maximum

Unlike the Fusion 15, the Core 15 doesn't possess individual RGB key lighting. Instead, it just has one lighting zone. Although it doesn't allow for as many optional LED settings, everything is still visible.

The keyboard also lacks N key rollover as well as anti-ghosting, at least according to the data sheet. Nevertheless, the key with which you can switch performance profiles is on board.

The Core uses the same panel as the Fusion. Although we measured significantly higher brightness (600 vs. 460 nits) that comes at the cost of the black level with the contrast suffering, as a result. 

At minimum brightness, the display's backlighting is also too bright but is still illuminated quite evenly.

At around 45 percent brightness (150 nits), we measured 150 nits. With a darker display, the color accuracy and, it goes without saying, the black level are both a tick better 

Unfortunately, there are no alternative display options but the display is bright, it has sufficiently fast response times, no PWM and, likewise, backlight bleeding is also not noticeable.

As with the Fusion 15, sRGB is completely covered, with P3 and AdobeRGB sitting at around 73 to 75 percent.

Color accuracy

Ou-of-the-box, the panel is decently calibrated, with DeltaE values of lower than 3. Nevertheless, the black value is considerably too high. Reducing the brightness to 150 nits not only improves the situation but also pushes the DeltaE values down slightly.

Manual calibration at native, maximum brightness works wonders despite the already decent values and noticeably manages to minimize the deviations. Therefore, the panel can be calibrated very well and this leads to very good color accuracy, at least in sRGB. At maximum brightness, the black value continues to be too high and this causes the contrast to suffer.

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.6 ms rise
↘ 4.6 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 21 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
9.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.6 ms rise
↘ 5 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17551 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The high brightness and the matte display ensure you won't have many problems using the device in the shade with content remaining highly legible. However, the contrast could be a little higher and you should avoid direct sunlight.

Performance - 20 % slower than the Fusion with HX and RTX 4070

With the Ryzen 7 8845HS, RTX 4060 and 32 GB RAM, the XMG Core 15 positions itself as a mid-tier gaming laptop and is also marketed as such. Its black, relatively slim, stylish and fully aluminum case gives the laptop an understated look that could also make it interesting for content creators. That makes it all the more regrettable that Schenker doesn't offer any additional display options because the well-calibrated screen can "only" display sRGB. This could be an unnecessary deal-breaking criterion for photo and, especially, video editors. That's why we would also like to see DisplayP3 options in future.

Test conditions

In the generic Control Center (Tulpar uses, for example, the same CC), 3 preset performance profiles (Balanced, Enthusiast, Overboost) and a manual profile are offered. In the latter, a fan boost can be activated and CPU target temperature, fan curves (and more) can be defined. Under general settings via MUX, the GPU can be switched from hybrid to dGPU, which subsequently requires a reboot. 

For our performance benchmarks, we chose the Overboost mode and, in the battery test, we used Balanced. We also present the performance values regarding the other modes.

All Core 15 SKUs are equipped with the same processor. The AMD Ryzen 7 8845HS is the second fastest CPU in the Hawk Point series with Zen 4 architecture. It has 8 cores and hyperthreading which means it can process 16 threads simultaneously. The cores have a base clock speed of 3.8 GHz and can be individually overclocked up to 5.1 GHz.

In the Cinebench R15 continuous test, our AMD Core 15 performed very consistently but mostly at a level somewhat below the laptops equipped with an Intel Gen14 HX CPU. That's not really surprising because the AMD CPU only briefly draws a maximum of 90 W and 80 W over a longer period. With the Intel CPU in the Fusion 15, these values are 140 W and 105 W. Only the Dell G16 dips below the Ryzen 7's consistent performance level seen in the Core after a better starting performance.

Across all CPU tests, our Ryzen 7 is completely on target. Unfortunately, however, our Core takes last place again since its Intel HX competitors are simply a bit more powerful. Nevertheless, the gap behind the Dell G16 or HP Victus 16 is really minimal. The Legion 5i or the Intel-powered Fusion 15 enjoy a significant advantage.

Away from the wall, there is a performance dip of around 35 percent in the Cinebench R15 multi-core test.

Enthusiast 2,749 short 90, then 65
Balanced 2,277 briefly 59, then 35

System performance

While our review system lags just a little behind regarding its pure CPU score, it leads the HX competition in PCMark 10. When it comes to the essentials, the score is in the middle of the pack but, in terms of productivity, it pulls ahead and is among the front runners in the area of content creation.

In CrossMark, the Dell G16 is a touch worse, with the other competitors slightly in front of our AMD Core 15.

DPC latencies

When opening the browser, there are minimal latencies which don't pose any problems - yet. When multiple browser tabs are opened, the latency value increases somewhat. This also applies to our 4K/60fps YouTube video playback and, at 62 percent, the load factor of the internal GPU seems to be quite high. The result is two dropped frames as well as an inglorious second place in the latency ranking.

Mass storage

In our review model, Schenker has fitted a speedy Samsung 990 Pro with 1 TB of storage and the Core 15 can be equipped with SSDs from six different companies including diverse models from this manufacturer. 

Depending on the test software used (CrystalDiskMark 6, AS SSD, Disksdp) the SSD does better or worse but, all in all, the 990 Pro remains a very fast PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD that also demonstrated very consistent high levels of performance in our review model running the Diskspd loop.
