SCHENKER XMG Core 16 gaming laptop review - A real competitor to the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16

Core gaming business. Schenker's Core 16 (Tongfang GM6XG7X) is a great gaming laptop that needn't hide from any of its upper mid-range rivals thanks to its AMD Ryzen 7 and RTX 4070 (or RTX 4060) and a whole range of other great features such as an optional mechanical keyboard.

The last XMG Core, which we also tested, was the XMG Core 15 (88 %) from a year ago - at the time, with an RTX 3060. Now, Schenker has brought out a 16-inch version of the Core. We will be taking a look at everything that has changed, aside from its screen size.

We will be comparing the Core 16 with the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16 Gen 8, the Acer Nitro 16 AN16-41, the HP Omen Transcend 16, the MSI Stealth 16 Studio and the HP Victus 16.

Case & connectivity - The sleek Core 16

This laptop has taken the Schenker-typical sleek approach - everything is kept in dark gray. The harder base and softer bottom plate are made from plastic, and the shiny display lid is made from metal. The latter is a bit of a fingerprint magnet. The lid can be opened up to 135 degrees.

Everything appears quite stable and its build is good. The left base side only creaked the first time we tried to twist it.

It has an average size and weight - comparable to the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16.

Slow SD card reader
Slow SD card reader

The gaming laptop includes all the most important ports, including a full SD card reader. Unfortunately, the USB-C port doesn't support Thunderbolt, Power Delivery or DisplayPort. For the latter, the laptop features a dedicated MiniDisplayPort. The device can't be charged via USB-C and the USB-A port on the left side is still type 2.0!

The previously mentioned SD card reader is unfortunately a very slow one - slower than on all predecessors and competitors. At least it features one at all.

The Intel AX200 supports WiFi 6, but only within the 5 GHz frequency. Its transfer rates are good and relatively stable.

Input devices - Mechanical or membrane keys

On this laptop, you get a choice between mechanical keys such as the ones our test model features, or a "silent membrane keyboard". Both come with RGB backlighting - but only the mechanical keyboard features individually RGB-lit keys. The quieter membrane version only has single-zone RGB lighting.

The mechanical keyboard only has quieter membrane switches when it comes to the function keys. All other keys have a great pressure point and give crisp feedback. You have to like the loud noise when typing and it's certainly not suitable to take with you into a library.

As usual, Schenker has implemented a very tidy layout without any accents. Everything fits into six straight key rows - including the numerical keypad. This means you can find everything super easily - usually, the keys are quite small (around 1.45 x 1.45 cm).

The touchpad is a bit on the small side (around 11.7 x 7.2 cm) but it is nice and smooth, even if your fingers aren't completely dry. You can (de)activate the pad by double-clicking the top left corner and a mini LED shows its current status. The integrated click buttons give you decent feedback but they are not too loud. Sometimes, the click gets a little stuck, meaning it isn't released immediately after you let go from dragging and dropping.

Display - Well-known 16:10 1,600p IPS panel

By the looks of it, Schenker uses the same matte 16:10 240-Hz display with a 1,600p resolution on all of its 16-inch models. This means we saw the same BOE panel on the Schenker Vision 16 Pro and the XMG Neo 16.

The screen certainly achieves good values. It has a brightness of 350 nits and a contrast value of just over 1,000:1. The sRGB display is fast enough and we didn't note any PWM. You can see some backlight bleeding, but nothing too bad.

One thing we noticed is that changing the brightness via the special keys only comes into effect when you let go of the keys again, which is a little annoying.

* ... smaller is better

Using our X-Rite color measuring device and the CalMAN software suite, we were able to massively improve the screen's good (but not entirely optimal) color depiction straight out of the box, leading to the color and grayscale DeltaE values (norm deviations) to sink down to 1. This means the display is suitable for editing photos - at least in the sRGB color space.

Display Response Times

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
6.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.5 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.7 ms).

This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.1 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 18278 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outside, you can read well from the display in shaded areas when you are directly facing it.

Performance - Strong RTX 4070 with Ryzen 7

The RTX 4070 is what makes the Core 16 a gaming laptop. The device might also be of interest to professionals and creatives - however, the sRGB color space might not be enough for these people and DisplayP3 isn't covered.

Compared to the more prevalent combination with an Intel CPU, this device has an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS installed. The high-end CPU, together with its 32 GB RAM and graphics card, actually makes the device more of a high-end gaming laptop. Almost all current games can be played smoothly in its native 1,600p resolution and with maximum details.

On bestware.com, Schenker's ordering website, you can configure the laptop extensively, choose between various SSDs and RAM manufacturers, and much more. You need to keep this in mind, as our test only takes into account our specific configuration.

 

Testing conditions

Schenker devices' Control Center lets you set performance presets as well as manually set individual performance parameters. This means you can change the gaming laptop's behavior to suit your individual needs. The same can be said for other settings, such as keyboard illumination, charging behavior and display.

Processor

AMD's Ryzen 7 7840HS features 8 Zen 4 cores and, thanks to SMT, this adds up to 16 threads. The cores clock from 3.8 GHz (base clock) up to 5.1 GHz (single-core boost). This makes it the second fastest CPU from the Phoenix series, behind the Ryzen 9 7940HS.

In comparison, its performance is on a similar level to the Core i7-13700H. The HP Victus 16 is slower with this CPU and the MSI Stealth 16 Studio with the same CPU is faster. Intel's HX processors, especially the much more expensive i9-13900HX, clearly take the lead.

During the Cinebench R15 continuous test, we noted no performance loss - it remained consistently high even after the first runs. In doing so, the CPU reached a constant TDP of 80 watts.

In Enthusiast mode, the runs were started at 65 watts and then fell to 55 watts. In Balanced mode, it only held 50 to 55 watts for a short amount of time, then it dropped down to 35 watts.

In battery mode, we measured 30 watts for a short space of time at the start, then 25 watts. Its Cinebench R15 score sank from 2,681 to 1,730 - a 35 per cent decline.

DPC latency

In comparison, the Core 16 is one of the few gaming laptops that doesn't have to fight any latencies according to LatencyMon. At least, the tool wasn't able to identify any unusually high latencies in our test - very good! Our 4K/60 fps YouTube video was played smoothly and with no dropped frames. Only the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16 performed similarly well in this field.

Storage devices

Schenker has installed a 1-TB Samsung 990 Pro into the device. This SSD is one of the fastest models available - in our best SSD list, it occupies 4th place. Within the Core 16, it isn't quite used to its full potential, but it is still extremely fast. Furthermore, its performance remains consistent over a long period of time, in contrast to the equally fast SSD within the Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16.
