Schenker XMG NEO 17 with RTX 3080 in laptop review: Users can unleash the RTX 3080 themselves

Warning - free-running RTX 3080! In some gaming laptops, the RTX 3080 has a TGP of 120 W, in others up to 165 W, which leads to strong performance differences of laptops with the same GPU. With the NEO 17, Schenker puts the reins in the user's hands; the TGP performance of the GPU can be easily set via the Control Center. So, is the NEO 17 the new performance high-flyer?

At the beginning of the year, we reviewed the Schenker XMG Neo 17 with AMD CPU and RTX 3070, and now one of the top models follows with RTX 3080 and Intel Tiger Lake CPU, and the mechanical keyboard is also on board again. As with the sister model, the TGP of the graphics card can be completely set via software, and the full 165 W can be assigned to the GPU this way. However, the sister model was already very loud under load with an RTX 3070, so did the developers still tweak the cooling system in the meantime?

The main competitors are the Aorus 17G YD, with the same CPU and GPU, the Medion Erazer Beast X25, the more expensive Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 and the Asus Strix Scar 17. In addition, we compare with the predecessor.

Since virtually nothing has changed in the case since 2019, we refer to the review of the Schenker XMG Neo 17 (Tongfang GK7CP7S) for the chassis, equipment and input devices sections.

Equipment - Prank cure with speed update

Of course, some things have already changed here since 2019, but not necessarily only for the better. For example, both miniDP ports are dropped, which is not compensated by anything. Otherwise, some ports change position: For example, the LAN port now moves to the back. The two USB-A ports on the right only support 3.0, whereas the USB-A port on the left supports 3.2 Gen2. The USB-C 4.0 port on the back supports Thunderbolt 4, including DisplayPort 1.4 and G-SYNC compatibility, but without Power Delivery; the gamer cannot charge via USB-C.

SD card reader

The SD reader accepts standard-sized SD cards, which do not snap into place and stick out halfway. The speed test with our reference memory card AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 results in average rates. The readers in the Zephyrus and Aorus are significantly faster, whereas the Medion has similar rates. Overall, the rates are clearly below average for the gaming sector, especially considering the price.

Communication

The LAN port supports 2.5 Gbit/s. In terms of WLAN transfer rates, the NEO is assured a place in the lower midfield, but most competitors are slightly faster. The transmission performance in particular fluctuates strongly and has outliers towards the bottom.

Webcam

Note the much too dark environment
Note the much too dark environment

The webcam is abysmal even for 720p standard cameras. While the color deviations are surprisingly low, the pictures are far too dark, blurry and washed out even in sunshine, which is why the webcam is only usable in an emergency. If you do not want to come across like a goth on your video conferences, you should rely on an external solution and ignore the internal camera.

Display - Well calibrated WQHD panel

Schenker relies on a matte 17.3-inch IPS display from BOE with a 16:9 resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and a refresh rate of 165 Hz. Thus, the display is the same as in the NEO 17 with AMD CPU and RTX 3060.

The average brightness of 366 nits is okay, and the illumination of 82 percent is acceptable.

Due to the matte surface and the quite good brightness, the NEO 17 can also be used quite well outdoors, at least in the shade.

The response times are not outstanding for a gamer, but sufficient. We did not notice any PWM.

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
8.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ ms rise
↘ ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 14 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 19 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.9 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

A bit of brightness is lost when viewing from extreme angles, but the loss is very limited as is typical for IPS.

Performance - Unbridled RTX 3080

The NEO 17 is clearly a gamer, not only because of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU or the 8-core Intel Core i7-11800H CPU. The RGB illumination of the keyboard also gives some hints. With this hardware combination, even the latest and most demanding games should be playable smoothly in the native resolution, and there are enough reserves for 4K gaming on external monitors.

For the best results in the benchmarks, we deactivate the internal GPU in the Control Center and activate the Overboost mode.

The 8 cores of the Intel Core i7-11800H clock between 2.3 and 4.6 GHz

The NEO 17 performs somewhat below average in the Cinebench R15 continuous loop despite the overboost mode, but the difference is only small. For example, the Aorus with the same CPU is a tad faster. The TDP is always 75 W in the individual runs. However, you could manually increase the TDP in the Control Center, but we leave it at the default settings of the overboost mode.

The NEO 17 loses about 20% in battery mode and only scores 1,420 instead of 1,767 points in Cinebench R15 Multi.

DPC latencies

If we open various articles from Notebookcheck.com in their own tabs, the NEO 17 copes well. The situation is different when we play our 4K/60 fps test video on YouTube. The result is a sad 59 dropped frames as well as a quite high delay in real-time rendering, which gives the Schenker the worst rates in comparison. Several drivers are to blame; Schenker should improve this with a BIOS update.

Mass storage

Schenker installs a Samsung SSD 980 Pro with 1 TB of storage space, which is at the top of our HDD/SSD table. Accordingly, it also outclasses most of the competitors in terms of speed. Only the Samsung PM9A1 in the Asus ROG Zephyrus is even a bit faster.

Graphics card

In the Neo, the integrated Intel Xe graphics works first, while the strong Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU waits for demanding tasks. You can deactivate Nvidia Optimus and thus the integrated GPU in the Control Center, which might result in a few more fps due to the direct connection without signal redirection to the iGPU. Commendable: Schenker passes on the GPU's TGP choice released by Nvidia to the customer. This means that users can assign the maximum TGP of 165 W (including 15 W Turbo Boost) to their NEO in the Control Center.

Our NEO also takes the lead in 3DMark 11, for example, as well as in 3DMark's Fire Strike test. However, the laptop performs somewhat below average in Time Spy and Cloud Gate. Overall, we can see that the performance of the RTX 3080 is very high.

Another 3DMark 11 run in battery mode reveals a performance loss of around 64%!

Gaming performance

In the various gaming benchmarks, the NEO takes the top spot almost consistently thanks to its strong GPU, with the RTX 3080 performing about 10% above all models we tested. The Zephyrus is its strongest competitor and often comes very close to the NEO, although the RTX 3080 in the Zephyrus only has a TGP of 140W. So even though the NEO is often at the top, the performance could be a bit better.
