Schenker XMG Neo 15 gaming laptop review: Ryzen 6000 with liquid cooling ports

A full tank, please. Schenker has introduced a new model featuring the latest AMD Ryzen 6000 processor, the Ryzen 9 6900HX, to its Neo 15 line-up. This time around, we are also reviewing this gaming laptop in combination with an RTX 3070 Ti. How well does the CPU with Zen architecture perform against its tried-and-tested Intel counterpart? Read on to find out!

The Intel-based Neo 15 that we reviewed back in July was an unusual laptop that features a connection for the optional OASIS cooling system (sold separately for around 199 Euro, or US$198), which we also tested at the same time.

XMG has now launched a new Neo 15 model equipped with the latest AMD Ryzen processor. The switch to an AMD CPU has also brought about some other changes in port selection and such.

So how well does the AMD-based Neo perform compared with the Intel-based model? In this review, we are going to test out a variant with the slightly more affordable RTX 3070 Ti (which still costs 2,850 Euro, or US$2,826) and take a look at what the hardware changes mean for the laptop's performance and emissions.

Besides just comparing the AMD- and Intel-based Neo 15s, we will be pitting the review model against other gaming laptops with an RTX 3070 Ti, such as the MSI Raider GE67, Asus ROG Strix Scar 15, Acer Nitro 5 and MSI Stealth GS66.

Case - sturdy keyboard deck, (overly) soft lower case

For a gaming laptop, the Neo 15 doesn't have an overly flashy design. For the most part, its colour scheme ranges from a plain dark grey to black. The display lid and base section are made of metal, whilst the bottom and bezel are made of a soft plastic. There is an XMG logo in the centre of the lid. The dotted LED bar on the front does sprinkle the device with a certain gaming aesthetic. 

Thanks to the use of metal, the Neo 15 feels very solid, especially in the base section. The laptop exhibits hardly any flex and doesn't make any creaking noises when twisted or bent. Naturally, the lid is going to be somewhat less stiff. That said, the display can endure some twisting without being affected. One drawback, however, is that fingerprints can accumulate on the matt surface. 

Unfortunately, the plastic lower case is so soft that this may happen: if you hold the device at the "wrong" place (i.e. the area around the air vent at the bottom right) using just one hand, this spot may get pushed in so far that it touches the spinning fans. 

Other than that, the Neo 15 has excellent fit and finish, feels very compact and robust, and is equipped with hinges that are firm enough but not too stiff.

At 26.6 mm (1.05") thick, the Neo isn't trying to compete with the slim Razer Blade 15. But it feels slightly thinner than it really is thanks to its compact design. Most of the competitors have roughly the same thickness; only the MSI Stealth is considerably slimmer.

The laptop's compactness is also reflected in its dimensions – none of the other laptops take up as little depth as the Neo 15. In terms of weight, the Neo is squarely in the middle of the comparison group. Only the Stealth is about 100 g (0.22 lb) lighter, while both the Nitro and MSI GE67 weigh around 200 g (0.44 lb) more.

Specifications - No Thunderbolt, slow USB-C port

Unfortunately, the USB-C port on the AMD-based Neo 15 is different from the one on the Intel model. On the AMD version, not only are you not getting Thunderbolt, but the USB-C port is only of type 3.2 Gen2x1 instead of Gen2x2. Power Delivery is likewise not supported.

On a positive note, the laptop features two separate audio jacks (microphone + headphones), and the ports are well arranged on the left, right and back. The water connection for XMG OASIS is also located on the rear.

SD card reader

Rather slow transfer speeds
Rather slow transfer speeds

The card reader accepts regular SD cards. When you insert an SD card, around half of the card will stick out of the slot because it doesn't have a locking mechanism.

The card reader's transfer speeds are more or less on the lower end of the spectrum.

Connectivity

The Neo comes with an Intel AX200 wireless module. Whilst this wireless card supports Wi-Fi 6, it still doesn't work with the 6 GHz frequency band. It delivers good and stable transfer rates, but the other Wi-Fi modules in the comparison are marginally faster.

The good: the Neo 15 is fitted with a Full HD webcam. The not-so-good: image quality is worse than what some 720p models are capable of (see photo below).

Security

There is no fingerprint sensor on the Neo 15, but TPM 2.0 and a Kensington slot are on board.

Accessories & warranty

Warranty options
Warranty options

Unlike many other manufacturers, Schenker is known for not scrimping on accessories. For instance, a large mousepad and a USB flash drive containing drivers are included in the box.

The company provides a 24-month warranty that includes pickup and return service as well as quick repair within the first six months of purchase.

Maintenance

The plastic bottom is secured in place by a total of 14 Phillips-head screws, four of which are on the liquid cooling ports. It is very easy to lift up the bottom panel when you start from the back. Once the laptop chassis is opened, you will have access to the two M.2 SSD slots, the fans, the battery, the Wi-Fi module and the two RAM slots.

Input devices - Opto-mechanical switches

Keyboard

The opto-mechanical keyboard occupies almost the entire width of the 15-inch laptop. This is large enough to accommodate full-size keys and even a number pad of the same size next to them. There isn't much space between the keys, but this is not an issue considering how large they are.

The keyboard has a very neat layout – everything fits inside a rectangle without any notches or similar. On the one hand, this means none of the keys stick out or are isolated from other keys, and the user only need to rely on the legends and their own experience to navigate the keyboard. On the other hand, everything is right where it belongs.

The keyboard on the Neo is also fairly comfortable to type on owing to its moderate key travel and clear feedback, thus enabling fast typing. The typing sound is a little "clattery", but it is not too bad. The laptop also features per-key RGB lighting for use in dark environments.

Touchpad

The touchpad

The touchpad is of a good size (approx. 11.6 x 7.4 cm, or 4.6 x 2.9") and has a smooth surface, meaning you won't experience stuttering even when sliding your finger slowly across the touchpad. There is a tiny LED at the top left-hand corner that indicates whether the touchpad is enabled or not.

The integrated click buttons are slightly stiffer than what we would find comfortable, but they provide distinctive feedback and a clear click sound.

Display - 240Hz QHD display with full sRGB coverage

Schenker uses the same 16:9 QHD IPS panel with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 on all the models. The display has a peak brightness of 350 nits, which is a relatively good level that puts the Neo 15 ahead of both the MSI Stealth and Acer Nitro.

However, its brightness distribution of just 82 per cent is somewhat below average. In particular, screen brightness is significantly lower along the bottom of the screen.

The black level and contrast are both great for a laptop of this class. The display also has good response time and doesn't use PWM.

The display is already quite well calibrated right out of the box. Despite the Delta E values not being especially low, there wasn't any improvement even after we manually calibrated the screen ourselves.

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↗ 4.6 ms rise
↘ 4.2 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. » 15 % 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
12.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.8 ms rise
↘ 6.6 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 16 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

When using the device outdoors, you should look for a shady spot and make sure you are viewing the display straight on. This is because the screen content is very difficult to read when viewed at an angle or in direct sunlight.

Performance - AMD and Intel almost on par with each other

You'll find many different ways to configure the Neo 15 M22 on bestware's website. But it always come with the same panel and AMD processor. Those who want an Intel CPU instead can look at the Neo 15 E22.

The RTX 3070 Ti in our review unit adds around 497 Euro (US$494) to the purchase price compared with the lowest-end GPU option (RTX 3060). It will set you back a cool 1,376 Euro (US$1,368) to upgrade from an RTX 3060 to RTX 3080 Ti.

Many other components, such as the SSD, DDR5 RAM and Wi-Fi module, are likewise upgradable.

Test conditions

The Control Center software offers a few performance profiles (Balanced, Enthusiast and Overboost). We selected the most powerful mode (Overboost) to give us the best benchmark results, despite the fact that Schenker recommends the middle option, which is designed to be the best compromise between performance and noise levels.

Furthermore, the software allows users to manually adjust various parameters (e.g. Dynamic Boost) as well as offset values. We would nonetheless like to see a silent mode added to the options.

Unlike the Neo 15 E22, which features a Core i7-12700H, the Neo M22 is powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX. The Zen 3+ CPU has eight cores that can operate at up to 4.9 GHz and run 16 threads concurrently. The processor also houses a Radeon 680M integrated GPU.

When running Cinebench continuously in a loop, the Ryzen CPU delivered its usual consistent performance without any dips after the first few runs. However, the Core i7-12700H in the Intel-based Neo 15 is slightly faster. And this is naturally also true for the Core i9-12900H in the ROG Strix or even the Core i7-12800HX in the MSI GE67.

The TDP always remained under 90 watts. In Enthusiast mode, power usage decreased slightly to about 85 watts.

In contrast, there was a drop in performance when the laptop was on battery power, with the TDP to reducing to "just" 50 watts.

DPC latency

We encountered the first DPC issues after opening several browser tabs to our home page. The latency increased during playback of our 4K YouTube videos at 60 FPS. Kernel drivers are suspected to be the main cause of this problem.

But at least there weren't any dropped frames and the CPU/GPU usage is very low during playback of the test video.
