Schenker Key 15 (Clevo PC50DN2) in review: A lot of performance in a slim, compact case

Light gaming powerhouse. Thanks to its powerful hardware, the soberly designed Schenker Key 15 brings all the latest computer games smoothly onto the matte 15.6-inch screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). The device can be individually customized to your own needs. In addition, the BIOS enables the undervolting of the CPU and iGPU.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser, Felicitas Krohn (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain),

With the Key 15, Schenker has a compact, lightweight 15.6-inch gaming laptop in its range that is equipped with powerful hardware. The test device provided to us is powered by a Core i7-10875H octa-core processor and a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU. The computer is based on the PC50DN2 barebone from Clevo. Its competitors include devices like the MSI GS66 10SGS, the Aorus 15G XB, the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model (2020), the Gigabyte Aero 15 XB, and the Acer Predator Triton 500.

Case - The Key 15 features a metal chassis

The term "inconspicuous" describes the Key 15 quite well. Schenker has chosen a sober look without any frills here. The device's appearance doesn't correspond to the typical gaming-laptop scheme but rather to a dapper business laptop. It wouldn't attract attention in any office in the world. Furthermore, the matte black chassis is made of metal. Only the display bezel is made of plastic. In addition, the battery is firmly installed, and there is no maintenance hatch.

The case shows good workmanship. The gap dimensions are in order, and sharp edges aren't noticeable. The base unit and the lid in particular can be twisted a bit too much. A higher degree of rigidity would be appropriate here. Moreover,  exerting pressure on the backside of the lid doesn't lead to changes in the image. The hinges hold the lid firmly in position, but they do let it wobble a bit. The maximum aperture angle is about 130°, and opening the lid with one hand is possible.

Within our comparison field, the Key is one of the most compact devices. Only the Razer Blade 15 is a little bit smaller. At a weight of about 2 kg, it's the lightest laptop.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 3 on board

The Key 15 comes with a total of three USB Type-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 1). In addition, there's a Thunderbolt 3 port that supports DisplayPort via USB-C. Together with the HDMI port (version 2.0) and the Mini DisplayPort (version 1.4), the laptop has three video outputs. Both DisplayPorts are G-Sync compatible. Alternatively, the Thunderbolt 3 port offers the possibility to connect a docking solution or an external GPU. The port configuration is rounded off with a Gigabit Ethernet connection and two audio ports.

SD card reader

The Key doesn't offer a full-fledged SD memory card reader. A MicroSD model is used.

Communication

The WLAN module uses an Intel chip (Wi-Fi 6 AX200) that supports the 802.11a/b/g/h/n/ac/ax WLAN standards. The transmission speeds determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) range from good to very good. Wired network connections are handled by a Gigabit Ethernet chip from Realtek's well-known RTL8168/8111 family.

Webcam

The built-in webcam (0.9 MP) produces images with a maximum resolution of 1280x720 pixels. In addition, there are issues with color accuracy. With a Delta E 2000 color deviation of almost 15, the target (Delta E less than 3) is clearly missed.

Accessories

Besides the usual documents (quick-start guide, warranty information) the laptop comes with a driver DVD, a set of screws, a retaining screw for a second SSD, a thermal pad, and a microfiber cloth.

Maintenance

The Schenker laptop doesn't have a maintenance hatch. To get to the inside, the bottom cover has to be detached. To do this, all the screws on the underside of the device need to be removed. The bottom cover can then be lifted. It doesn't sit excessively tight in its place.

Input devices - Suitable for everyday use

Keyboard

The Schenker laptop has a backlit chiclet keyboard (RGB lighting) that also comes with a number pad on board. The flat, smooth keys have a medium travel and a clear pressure point. While typing, the keyboard yields slightly in the middle, but this didn't prove to be excessively bothersome. All in all, you'll find a keyboard suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

The multi-touch capable touchpad occupies an area of approximately 10.8 x 6.1 cm. This provides plenty of space for using gesture controls. Furthermore, the smooth pad surface makes it easy for fingers to glide on it. The pad also reacts to input in the corners, and the two separate mouse buttons offer a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - 144 Hz IPS

The Key's 15.6-inch display has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. While the contrast (1,034:1) is pleasing, there's still room for improvement in terms of brightness (281 cd/m²). We consider values beyond 300 cd/m² to be good. In addition, the 144 Hz panel provides quick response times. Positive: The display shows no PWM flickering. Alternatively, the Key 15 can be equipped with a 4K OLED display.

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, the display shows a mediocre color reproduction. With a Delta E 2000 color deviation of 5.39, the target (Delta E less than 3) is missed. Furthermore, the display suffers from a blue tint. Calibration provides significant improvements. In this way, the color deviation is reduced to 1.73, the blue tint disappears, and the grayscales are displayed in a more balanced way. The AdobeRGB (69%) and sRGB (92%) color spaces aren't fully reproduced.

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
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.4 ms rise
↘ 4.8 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 9 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17507 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Schenker has equipped the laptop with a viewing-angle-stable IPS panel. The screen can thus be read from any position. Outdoors, the display can only be read when the sun is not too bright.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Control Center software allows, among other things, the fan control to be adjusted and an energy profile to be selected. We conducted all tests with automatic fan control and the "Entertainment Mode" energy profile. We also ran some benchmarks with the "Power Mode" profile active.

Undervolting via BIOS

The processor and the integrated GPU can be operated with lower voltages than those provided by the manufacturer (undervolting). As a result, energy consumption and heat development are lower. But reducing the voltage too much can lead to an unstable or faulty system. Schenker has, therefore, limited the voltage decrease to a maximum of 50 mV using 10 mV steps. If errors or instabilities occur, it's necessary to switch back to the previous voltage step. Please note: Undervolting is always done at the user's own risk.

Processor

The Key 15 is powered by a Core i7-10875H octa-core processor (Comet Lake). The CPU operates at a base speed of 2.3 GHz. The clock speed can be increased to 4.3 GHz (eight cores) or 5.1 GHz (one core) via Turbo. Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The processor briefly works through the multithread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 2.3 to 4.3 GHz. The single-thread test is run at 4.3 to 5.1 GHz. On battery power, the clock rates are 1.9 to 2.6 GHz (multithread) and 2 to 4.9 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

We verify if the CPU Turbo is also consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. The results drop from the first to the second run and then remain at a constant level. Turbo is used. If Performance Mode is activated within the Control Center, the Turbo speeds increase and consequently the results too.

Storage

The system drive is an NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) from Samsung that provides 1 TB of storage space. The transfer rates of the SSD are excellent. The laptop has a second M.2 2280 slot that can be occupied by an NVMe or SATA SSD. If both slots are equipped with NVMe SSDs, these could form a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array if required.

An NVMe SSD serves as system drive. A second SSD in the M.2 2280 format (NVMe or SATA) can be installed.

Graphics card

The GeForce 2080 Super Max-Q graphics core (Turing) operates at a base speed of 735 MHz. When boosted, an increase up to 1,080 MHz is possible. Higher speeds are feasible if the GPU doesn't reach a specified temperature and/or energy threshold. The maximum speed measured by us is 1,880 MHz. Moreover, the GPU runs our The Witcher 3 test at average speeds of 1,381 MHz and 1,447 MHz (Performance Mode), respectively. The GPU is supported by fast GDDR6 memory (8,192 MB).

The 3DMark results are at a normal level for the GPU installed here. The UHD Graphics 630 GPU that's integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution. Furthermore, activating Performance Mode within the Control Center results in an increase of the graphics performance.

Gaming performance

The Schenker laptop brings all the latest games smoothly onto the screen. Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings can usually be selected here. The GPU also handles resolutions beyond Full HD (an appropriate monitor needs to be connected for this). However, the quality level should then be set somewhat more conservatively - especially at 4K level.

A look at the following table shows that activating Performance Mode results in a frame-rate increase. In most cases, however, the increase is quite small. An outlier at the top is observed with the F1 2020 game.

In order to verify whether the frame rates remain largely constant even over a prolonged period of time, we let the game The Witcher 3 run for about 60 minutes at Full HD resolution and maximum quality settings. The character embodied by the player is not moved during this whole period. A drop in frame rates wasn't found.
