Schenker XMG Core 15 (2021): Power Limits and TGP can be configured
The Schenker XMG Core 15 is powered by a Ryzen 7 4800H APU and a GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU. The hardware is supported by 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), and an upgrade to up to 64 GB is possible. Moreover, the laptop has room for two NVMe SSDs (M.2-2280), and RAID 0 is supported.
The hardware installed here can bring all the latest games smoothly onto the screen. The display's full resolution (2560x1440 pixels, WQHD, IPS, 165 Hz) and high to maximum quality settings can be used here. Lower resolutions allow a consistent use of maximum quality settings.
The designation of a GeForce RTX 3000 graphics core doesn't say anything about the actual performance. The laptop manufacturers are pretty free to choose the TGP and consequently the maximum available computing power within the limits defined by Nvidia. In this way, Schenker has set the TGP of the RTX 3060 to 120 watts (115 watts + 5 watts Dynamic Boost) by default. The Dynamic Boost has to be increased to 15 watts in the Control Center in order to use the potential maximum of 130 watts.
The current incarnation of the Control Center gives users significantly more options than previous versions in terms of performance development. For instance, you can adjust the CPU's power limits, the GPU's TGP, the CPU/GPU temperature limits, and the fan curves.
