Schenker XMG Neo 15 gaming laptop in review - RTX 3080 with 165W TGP ensures high scores

Tiger Lake competes with AMD. The XMG Neo 15 is a 15-inch gaming laptop that tries to convince with industrial design and a lot of raw performance. It relies on the new Tiger-Lake CPUs and the current GeForce RTX 3000 generation. We will find out whether the concept works in the following review.
Marius Schell, 👁 Florian Glaser, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇫🇷 ...

The brand-new Schenker XMG Neo 15 M21 is one of the first laptops in the manufacturer's lineup that is also equipped with a Tiger Lake H processor in addition to the 16 GB RTX-3080. Unlike models from larger manufacturers, there are numerous pro features on this 15-inch laptop, such as CPU undervolting and manual configuration of power limits and the working memory.

As an Intel-based laptop, the Neo 15 M21 supports Thunderbolt 4, but it also has to compete with AMD Ryzen rivals that have a lot going for them in terms of CPU performance and energy efficiency. The Neo 15 is also available in an AMD version. Compared to the predecessor, the XMG Neo 15 (Comet Lake), our review sample should be able to offer much more performance thanks to the new CPU and GPU generation.

Case - Industrial inspiration

Apart from the plastic base plate, the casing is mostly made of matte black aluminum with a relatively smooth surface texture. The material is very susceptible to fingerprints, but they can be quickly removed with a cloth. The construction gives an extremely stable impression and almost does not yield under pressure and in the torsion test. The workmanship also offers no reason for criticism and thanks to the subtle design, the laptop also fits into a professional environment. The laptop can be opened with one hand, but there is no notch on the front that would make this easier.

With a thickness of 26 mm, the Neo 15 M21 is not one of the thinnest 15-inchers, but the footprint is quite compact. The weight of 2.2 kg (~4.85 lb) is in the midfield.

Equipment - Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.1

The highlights of the connectivity include the Thunderbolt 4 port, which cannot be used for charging here, an HDMI 2.1 port and a 2.5 Gb/s LAN port. In contrast to the desktop versions, mobile RTX-3000 GPUs do not necessarily support the latest HDMI standard and the associated HDCP 2.3 encryption. The ports are distributed on three sides. Placing two USB-A ports on the right side is an unusual decision, especially for a gaming laptop, since connected devices would take up space that would otherwise be available for mouse movements. At the same time, this fact may make the Neo 15 more attractive to left-handed users. A relatively unusual advantage is the separate microphone and headphone ports.

SD card reader

The performance of the SD card reader in combination with our reference card AV Pro microSD 128 GB V60 is comparable to that of the Predecessor, almost identical. Since the Aorus 15P YD achieves about twice as high transfer speeds and the Razer Blade 15 pro model achieves a lead of 153% in the JPG copy test, the installed card reader is rather one of the slower models. However, it supports normal-sized SD cards.

Communication

Intel's WLAN module AX201 offers WLAN 6 and Bluetooth 5 support. In the WLAN test, it achieves peak values for both reception and transmission in comparison, which are between 30 and 40% higher than the average values of the AX201. Although it is already equipped with the WLAN-6E chip AX210, the successor of the AX201, the Razer Blade 15 pro model cannot keep up here.

Security

The Neo 15 comes with TPM 2.0 and a Kensington Lock as security features.

Accessories

In addition to the laptop itself and the charger, the scope of delivery includes a manual and a driver CD or a driver USB stick. In the online shop of the manufacturer, for example, replacement batteries and power supplies can be purchased.

Maintenance

After loosening 10 cross screws, the base plate, which is equipped with a cooler for the M.2 SSDs as seen in the picture, can be removed easily. This is much easier here than with many competitors, where additional plastic clips require a higher degree of caution. Inside, you have direct access to the SSDs, the WLAN module, the battery and the RAM modules.

Warranty

The warranty period is 2 years. Once the configuration page has been enabled, it should be possible to extend the warranty up to 3 years with optional quick repair service.

Input devices - Mechanical keyboard leaves a lot to be desired

Keyboard

The chiclet keyboard with numeric keypad relies on optomechanical keys with tactile switches that have a key drop of 2 mm and a travel of 1 mm. The key layout makes optimum use of the available space, creates a tidy impression and yet does not have to resort to half-height arrow or numeric keypad keys. An RGB key illumination is also available and comes up with various effects as well as 4 brightness levels. Since the keyboard offers a low resistance, it seems quite soft and not particularly high-quality despite its mechanical nature. It is questionable whether the use of a mechanical model was worthwhile here at all, because the conventional keyboards of many laptops are also better suited for writing longer texts in particular. The keys acknowledge a release with audible typing noises, but are especially quieter than a "clicky" model. The keyboard base is very rigid and hardly yields under pressure even in the center.

Touchpad

The glass touchpad bears the Microsoft Precision designation and has an extremely smooth, medium-sized surface (~11.6 x 7.4 cm/~4.6 x 2.9 in). Tapping on the lower half produces a slight rattling noise under certain circumstances. However, the touchpad is fine for occasional use and many gamers will probably connect an external mouse most of the time anyway. Standard gestures and mouse cursor control work well, but the touchpad does not quite respond to inputs up to the upper limit.

Display - High-resolution WQHD display with 165 Hz and good contrast

Schenker XMG Neo 15 - backlight bleeding at maximum brightness
Schenker XMG Neo 15 - backlight bleeding at maximum brightness

For the display, the manufacturer relies on a matte IPS display from BOE with a native WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a refresh rate of 165 Hz. The display is fixed in all configurations and is currently a very popular compromise between image and motion sharpness. Especially since this is a 15-inch display where the extra pixels do not significantly improve the perceived sharpness, a 1080p 300Hz or a 1080p 360Hz display option would have been an interesting alternative for competitive shooters. Most competitors also offer these at least as an option.

The average brightness of 307 cd/m² that we measured falls short of the manufacturer's specification of 350 cd/m², but is on the usual level in the class comparison and the brightness distribution turns out relatively good with 91%. Fortunately, PWM is not used.

* ... smaller is better

The black value of 0.27 is an average value in comparison, which earns the display a good contrast ratio of 1200:1. The Asus ROG Strix G15 and the Razer Blade 15 pro model have a small lead in this respect with 1,339:1 and 1,408:1, respectively. The color space coverage of 98.55% of the sRGB, 69.26% of the AdobeRGB, and 68.55% of the DCI-P3 color space is about the same as the competition. Thus, the display is not better suited for professional image editing than the Full HD screens of the rivals.

The display is relatively legible outdoors thanks to the matte IPS panel, but it is not bright enough to reliably compensate for reflections in direct sunlight.

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
12 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 6 ms rise
↘ 6 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. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
16 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 8.4 ms rise
↘ 7.6 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 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 (38.1 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 14804 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

As expected, the viewing angles of the IPS panel are very good and even when viewing from very steep angles, the colors and perceived brightness are almost not distorted.

Performance - Tiger-Lake CPU with amazing performance

Our test device is the Intel version of the XMG Neo 15, which accordingly comes with an Intel Core i7-11800H. In addition, there are two DDR4 3200 MHz RAM modules with a capacity of up to 64 GB (here: 2x 16 GB), a mobile Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 and a 1 TB NVMe SSD. While the Core-i7-11800H CPU is used in all configurations, we assume that other storage solutions for the two M.2-2280 PCIe slots (1x PCIe 3.0 x4, 1x PCIe 4.0 x4) will be available in the configurator later. Thus, the Schenker XMG Neo 15 is well equipped for demanding scenarios like gaming.

Processor

The manufacturer relies on the Intel Core i7-11800H, an 8-core CPU with 16 threads, whose power consumption can be freely set from 10-120 W via the pre-installed Control Center software. Since the Tiger Lake H CPU is manufactured in a 10 nm process, it is faster and more efficient than the processors from Intel's 10th processor generation. In the Cinebench R15 loop test, the CPU goes head-to-head with the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, which it can even win in the end with a narrow lead of about 5%. Although there are laptops that achieve slightly better results with the Ryzen 9 5900HX than the Asus ROG Strix G15, this is an impressive result, which shows that the Intel model can definitely stand up to the AMD competition. The XMG Neo 15 also achieves mostly top scores in the application benchmarks.

In battery mode, the CPU performance in the Cinebench R15 multi-thread test is on average about 50% lower than in mains operation.

Mass storage

Our model uses the Samsung 980 Pro NVMe SSD as the system drive. This is a very powerful PCIe 4.0 drive that achieves excellent results overall in the test. Apart from the Samsung PM9A1 in the Aorus 15P YD, which also already uses PCIe 4.0, our test device beats all other comparison devices with a mostly clear lead. However, the transfer rates of the two other laptops we tested with the 1 TB version of the 980 Pro are on average about 15% higher.

More information and benchmark comparisons can be found in our Hard disk and SSD table.

Graphics card

The Schenker XMG Neo 15 comes with the mobile Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 with 16 GB of video memory. Its TDP can be set to 120-165 watts via the Control Center software. Alternatively, the Neo 15 can also be configured with an RTX 3060 (130 W) or an RTX 3070 (140 W). The RTX 3080 shows off its enormous performance with numerous top scores in our review unit and only does not take first place in the older Cloud Gate benchmark. The advantage probably partly stems from the directly adjustable TDP of the GPU, but it also shows that the cooling solution is up to the task. The graphics performance is severely limited in battery mode and the manual consumption settings are not available then, either.

Gaming performance

Analogous to the synthetic performance, the gaming performance is also extremely high. Nevertheless, the Alienware m15 R4 still manages to outperform our test device on some graphics settings. Overall, the GPU performance is high enough to smoothly render even the latest games in the native WQHD resolution with high or maximum details. The mobile RTX 3080 does not seem to be significantly limited in its performance by the 15-inch format and unfolds its performance in practice without any problems.

Looking at the Witcher 3 frame rate history reveals an interesting parallel to that of the Neo 15 Comet Lake: Both Schenker laptops show a very constant frame rate history that is not characterized by small drops like many competitors. Presumably, there is little to no background activity here and certain automatic energy-saving measures are overridden by the manual performance profile.
