Schenker XMG Core 17 (Tongfang GK7MRFR) in review: Mid-range gaming laptop without hot flashes

Solid. The hardware of the Schenker XMG Core 17 brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the 17.3-inch screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). The laptop also scores points with moderate heat development, low noise development in everyday use, and room for two SSDs.

The Schenker XMG Core 17 is a mid-range gaming laptop. The review sample provided to us is powered by a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics core. Alternatively, the laptop is available with a GeForce RTX 2060 Refresh GPU. Competitors include devices like the Lenovo Legion 5 17IMH05, the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-54, the MSI GF75 Thin SDR, and the Nexoc GH7 716IG.

Since the 2020 Core 17 is identical in construction to the 2019 model, we won't go further into the case, the connectivity, the input devices, and the speakers. The corresponding information can be found in the review of the Schenker XMG Core 17 (2019).

* ... smaller is better

Out of the box, the display shows a decent color reproduction. However, with a color deviation of 4.3, the target (Delta E less than 3) is not met. Moreover, the display doesn't suffer from a blue tint. Calibration reduces the color deviation to 2.29 and provides a more balanced representation of the grayscales. The AdobeRGB (66%) and sRGB (92%) color spaces are not 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 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.2 ms rise
↘ 4.8 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. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
17.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise

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. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.5 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 detected 1000 Hz ≤ 99 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 1000 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 99 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 1000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9686 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. Outdoors, reading the display is possible under cloudy skies or in the shade.

Performance - Sufficient for all application areas

Schenker's 17.3-inch gaming laptop brings every modern game smoothly onto the screen and also cuts a fine figure in all other application areas. Our test device costs about 1,500 Euros (~$1,828). The laptop can be customized in Schenker's online store.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Control Center allows selecting a performance profile ("Balanced", "Enthusiast", "Overboost"). We performed our test under the "Enthusiast" profile and using automatic fan control. We also ran some benchmarks with the "Overboost" and "Balanced" profiles enabled, respectively. The results can be found in the comparison graphs.

Processor

The Core i7-10750H hexa-core processor (Comet Lake) operates at a base speed of 2.6 GHz. Via Turbo, the clock rate can be increased to 4.3 GHz (six cores) and up to 5 GHz (one core). Hyper-Threading (two threads per core) is supported.

The processor executes the CPU tests of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at 3.7 to 4.3 GHz (multithread) and 4.2 to 5 GHz (single-thread). On battery power, the clock rates are 3 to 3.3 GHz (multithread) and 2.5 to 3.9 GHz (single-thread), respectively.

We verify if the CPU Turbo is consistently used when plugged in by running the Cinebench R15 benchmark's multithread test in a continuous loop for at least 30 minutes. Turbo is used. Furthermore, enabling the "Overboost" profile causes an increase in Turbo speeds.

Storage

An NVMe SSD (M.2 2280) from Samsung serves as system drive. It provides 1 TB of storage space and delivers very good transfer rates. In total, the laptop can accommodate two M.2 2280 SSDs (1x NVMe, 1x NVMe/SATA; RAID 0/1).

The laptop would still have room for a 2.5-inch storage medium. Since our test device is equipped with the larger of the two available batteries (46 Wh, 62 Wh), the battery takes up the space designated for the storage device.

Two M.2 SSDs can be installed.

Graphics card

The GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics core (Turing) belongs to the upper GPU mid-range. It's supported by fast GDDR6 memory (4,096 MB). The 3DMark results are at a normal level for the GPU installed here. The "Overboost" profile causes a slight increase in graphics performance. Moreover, the UHD Graphics 630 GPU integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop works with Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching solution.

Gaming performance

The Core 17 brings all games in our database smoothly onto the screen. Full HD resolution and medium to high quality settings can usually be selected. Titles that only have low hardware requirements allow more. A current hit like Cyberpunk 2077 requires a reduction of the resolution and/or quality level. The "Overboost" profile doesn't cause an increase in frame rates.
