The reseller announces two new XMG models with the updated Nvidia GTX 965M GPU.

The GeForce GTX 965M 2016 refresh (N16E-GR) is finally here as a revised GTX 965 Ti GM206 chip for notebooks. Schenker will be one of the first resellers to offer gaming SKUs configured with the GPU. This includes the updated XMG A516 and A716, both based on Clevo barebones that are also available from Eurocom for North American users.

Schenker XMG notebooks have been shipping with the GTX 960M for well over a year and two will now ship with the GTX 965M (N16E-GR) as options. Otherwise, the 15.6-inch XMG A516 and 17.3-inch A716 will still use the same FHD and IPS FHD panels, respectively.

According to the reseller, the new GTX 965M should provide a performance boost of up to 40 percent from the GTX 960M. Our initial tests with the revised GTX 965M show it to be about 13 percent ahead of the old GTX 965M with the GTX 960M behind by about 30 percent.

Prices from mysn.de start at around 1300 Euros for the XMG A516 with configuration options including a Core i7-6700HQ CPU, 8 GB DDR3 RAM, 120 GB SSD, and secondary 1 TB HDD. Again, North American users can purchase from other Clevo resellers such as Eurocom that would be more appropriate for the region.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
