Schenker XMG Core 15 (Tongfang GM5NG0O) in review: A lot of performance for the fast WQHD panel

The RTX 3060 does a good job. The Schenker Core 15 brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the responsive screen (WQHD, IPS, 165 Hz). In addition, there's an NVMe SSD, 16 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode), and decent battery runtimes. The new Control Center provides extensive control over the APU and GPU performance.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇷🇺 ...

The Schenker XMG Core 15 is a lower high-end gaming laptop. It's powered by a Ryzen 7 4800H APU and a GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU. Competitors include devices like the Asus TUF Dash F15 FX516PR, the Aorus 15G XC, the HP Omen 15, and the Acer Predator Triton 300 PT315-52.

Case - Core 15 chassis made of aluminum and plastic

Schenker has opted for a discreet exterior in the 2021 model - just like in the predecessors. This allows the laptop to be used in business environments as well. The differences to the 2020 model are marginal. Most noticeable: The webcam of the 2021 model has moved back to its usual position above the display (2020 model: below the display). The top of the base unit and the back of the lid of the all-black chassis are made of aluminum, while the rest of the components are made of plastic. The laptop doesn't have a maintenance hatch, and the battery is permanently is firmly built into the device.

The laptop doesn't reveal any manufacturing flaws. The gap dimensions are in order, and there are no material protrusions. There's nothing to criticize in terms of stability, either. The rigid base unit can be twisted minimally at best, and the whole situation is completely within limits when it comes to the lid. The hinges keep the lid firmly in position, but they let it wobble a bit. Moreover, the maximum aperture angle is 135 degrees, and opening the lid with one hand is possible.

Within our comparison field, the Core 15 is one of the lightest and most compact devices.

Connectivity - Schenker laptop without Thunderbolt

The Core 15 comes with a total of three USB Type-A ports (2x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0). In addition, there's a USB Type-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 2) that supports DisplayPort via USB-C (version 1.4, G-Sync compatible). Together with the HDMI connection (version 2.1), the laptop has, therefore, two video outputs. Connectivity is rounded off by a Gigabit Ethernet port and two audio connections.

Communication

The WLAN chip (Intel AX200) supports the 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax standard and offers Bluetooth 5 functionality. The data rates determined under optimal conditions (no other WLAN devices nearby, short distance between laptop and server PC) turn out to be excellent. Wired network connections are handled by the Realtek RTL8125 Gigabit Ethernet controller. It performs its tasks smoothly.

Accessories

Besides warranty information, the laptop comes with a recovery DVD and a mousepad.

Maintenance

Maintenance and upgrade procedures can be carried out without issues. After removing all screws on the underside of the device, the bottom cover can be lifted off. In the case of our test device, no additional tools were needed for this. Otherwise, a grout finishing tool or a flat spatula can help.

Warranty

The base warranty is two years - including pick-up service and a six-month quick repair program (repairs within 48 hours). A 36-month warranty costs 80 to 119 Euros (~$95 to ~$141) - depending on the selected quick-repair period.

Input devices - Schenker installs a backlit keyboard

Keyboard

The Schenker laptop has a backlit chiclet keyboard (RGB lighting) that includes a numeric keypad. However, the latter lacks the fourth column and consequently the second "Enter" key. The flat, smooth keys have a medium travel and a clear pressure point. We like the key resistance, and the keyboard doesn't yield during typing. Moreover, the four-stage backlight is controlled with two function keys. All in all, you get a keyboard that is suitable for everyday use here.

Touchpad

The smooth surface of the multitouch-capable ClickPad (about 11.6 x 7.4 cm) makes it easy for fingers to glide on it. The pad responds to inputs in the corners as well. It has a short travel and a clear pressure point.

Display - 165 Hz IPS

The brightness (327.6 cd/m²) and contrast (1,285:1) of the matte 15.6-inch display (WQHD, 2560x1440 pixels) are good. In addition, the 165 Hz panel used here offers fast response times. Positive: The display doesn't show PWM flickering. Schenker also offers a Full HD display (IPS, 240 Hz) as an alternative.

* ... smaller is better

Already out of the box, the display shows good color reproduction. With a color deviation of just under 1.7, the target (Delta E less than 3) is met. Moreover, the display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Slight improvements are achieved through calibration: Color deviation drops to 1.23, and grayscales are displayed in a more balanced way. The AdobeRGB (71%) and sRGB (94%) color spaces aren't completely 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
10.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 5.2 ms fall
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 240 (maximum) ms. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.2 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. » 13 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.4 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9644 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Reading the display outdoors is possible when the sun doesn't shine too brightly.

The preinstalled Control Center allows the selection of a performance profile ("Balanced", "Enthusiast", "Overboost"), among other things. We performed our test with the "Overboost" profile active and automatic fan control. We used the "Enthusiast" profile for the battery tests. A button next to the power button allows the user to quickly switch between performance profiles.

The completely redesigned Control Center offers significantly more ways to influence performance compared to the predecessor version. For instance, the CPU's power limits, the GPU's TGP, and the CPU's and GPU's upper temperature limits can be adjusted. Five subprofiles can - but don't have to - be defined for each of the three performance profiles, so that, for example, individual usage scenarios can be addressed.

Processor

The Core 15 is powered by a Ryzen 7 4800H (Renoir). The CPU part of the APU consists of an octa-core processor that operates at a base speed of 2.9 GHz. An increase to up to 4.3 GHz is possible via Turbo. Simultaneous multithreading (two threads can be processed per core) is supported.

The multithread tests of the Cinebench benchmarks are run at 4 to 4.2 GHz (plugged in) and 2.9 to 3 GHz (battery power). The single-thread tests are processed at 1.4 to 4.3 GHz (when plugged in and on batter power).

Multithread (plugged in)

Single-thread (plugged in)
Single-thread (plugged in)

We check whether the CPU Turbo is used consistently when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a loop for a minimum of 30 minutes. Turbo is used to a great extent.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX 3060 laptop graphics core is Nvidia's current entry-level high-end GPU model. The GPU can access fast GDDR6 graphics memory (6,144 MB). The Vega 7 graphics core integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution. The Vega 7 iGPU can be disabled within the BIOS or via the Control Center.

Laptop manufacturers can freely select the TGP and, therefore, the maximum available computing power of an RTX 3000 graphics core within the limits defined by Nvidia (overview of all RTX 3060 laptops including their TGPs). Schenker has set the TGP of the RTX 3060 to 120 watts (115 watts + 5 watts Dynamic Boost) in its default state. The Dynamic Boost has to be increased to 15 watts via the Control Center in order to use the potential maximum of 130 watts.

Since Schenker almost completely utilizes the TGP, the Core 15 scores very well in the GPU and gaming tests. The Asus TUF Dash F15 FX516PR, which is equipped with the nominally more powerful GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU, is clearly outperformed in some cases. The reason: Asus has set the TGP of the RTX 3070 at 85 watts, which is very low.
