Schenker XMG Neo 17 (2020, Tongfang GM7MPHS) Review: Overboost unleashes the Core-i7 processor

Full speed ahead. The Neo 17 brings all the current computer games smoothly to the very responsive 17.3-inch screen (FHD, IPS, 240 Hz). The level of equipment is also right: a mechanical keyboard, 32 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode), an NVMe SSD (1 TB), and a Thunderbolt 3 connection are onboard. However, the battery life does not inspire enthusiasm.
Sascha Mölck, Brian Burriston (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the XMG Neo 17, Schenker offers a 17.3-inch gaming notebook that is equipped with powerful hardware. The test unit that was made available to us is run by a Core i7-10875H octa-core processor and a GeForce RTX-2070 Super GPU. The competitors include the Acer Predator Helios 300 PH317-54, the MSI GL75 10SFR, the Asus Strix G17 G712LWS, and the Aorus 17G XB.

Since the device shares an identical build with its predecessor, we will not discuss the case, connection equipment, input devices, or speakers again, except where there are some differences. You can find the corresponding information in our review of the Schenker XMG Neo 17 (Tongfang GK7CP7S).

Equipment - Neo 17 now with Thunderbolt 3

In terms of the connections, some things have changed compared to the predecessor model: the two Mini DisplayPorts have been replaced with a Thunderbolt 3 connection (DisplayPort-via-USB-C is supported). According to Schenker, you can connect two monitors (in series/MST) to the TB3 connection. A USB-Type-C-to-DisplayPort adapter is included. In addition, the USB 2.0 connection was upgraded to a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type-A) connection.

Display - 240 Hz IPS panel

The matte 17.3-inch display of the Neo 17 offers a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The brightness (305.4 cd/m²) and contrast (1022:1) turn out good. The 240-Hz panel delivers short response times. Another positive point is the lack of any PWM flickering.

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
6.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 3.2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 7 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.6 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 636 (maximum) ms. » 10 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 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 9725 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The display shows a good color reproduction. With a color deviation of 2.16, the target of Delta-E smaller than 3 is reached. The display does not suffer from a blue tint. A calibration still brings additional improvements with the color deviation dropping to 0.89 and the grayscale display becoming more balanced. The AdobeRGB (71%) and sRGB (93%) color spaces are not covered completely.

Performance - Sufficient for the next few years

With the Neo 17, Schenker offers a 17.3-inch gaming laptop that brings all the current games to the screen smoothly and also strikes a good figure in other application areas. You would have to pay about 2349 Euros (~$2781) for our test unit. The device can be individually configured in the Schenker online shop.

Test Conditions

The preinstalled Control Center provides an overview of the system status and allows adjusting the keyboard illumination as well as choosing a performance profile ("Balanced," "Enthusiast," or "Overboost"). We ran our test with the "Enthusiast" profile and automatic fan control activated. We also ran several benchmarks with the "Overboost" profile activated. You can find the results in the comparison charts.

Processor

The Core i7-10875H octa-core processor (Comet Lake) runs at a basic clock speed of 2.3 GHz, which can be increased via Turbo to 4.3 GHz (eight cores) or up to 5.1 GHz (single core). Hyperthreading (two threads running per core) is supported.

The CPU runs through the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark at clock speeds between 2.2 and 4.2 GHz and the single-thread test with between 4 and 5.1 GHz. In battery operation, the speed is between 2.7 and 2.8 GHz (multi-thread) and between 2.4 and 4.2 GHz (single-thread).

We evaluate whether the CPU Turbo is also used constantly in mains operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark for at least 30 minutes in a constant loop. Towards the third run, the results drop slightly but then remain at a constant level. The Turbo is used, and the "Overboost" mode allows increasing the Turbo clock speeds significantly.

Storage Solution

One of the two M.2-2280 slots (1x NVMe, 1x NVMe/SATA; RAID 0/1) is equipped with a 1-TB NVMe SSD from Samsung, which delivers excellent transfer rates.

While generally, the laptop still offers space for a 2.5-inch storage medium, because our test unit is equipped with the larger of the two available batteries (46 Wh, 62 Wh), the battery is taking up the additional space.

The laptop offers space for two SSDs.

Graphics Card

The GeForce RTX-2070 Super graphics core (Turing) belongs to the powerful GPU high end, and it is accompanied by fast GDDR6 storage (8192 GB). The 3D-Mark results range at a normal level for the GPU used. The "Overboost" mode leads to an increase in the graphics performance. The UHD Graphics-630 GPU integrated into the processor is active, and the laptop uses Nvidia' s Optimus graphics switching solution.

The BIOS offers some options.
The BIOS offers some options.

It is not absolutely necessary to use Optimus. The BIOS of the laptop offers the three options "MSHybrid" (= Optimus), "iGPU Only" (= UHD Graphics 630), and "dGPU Only" (= 2070 Super). So there is an option to connect the display directly to the GeForce GPU.

Gaming Performance

The Neo 17 brings all the current games smoothly to the screen in in Full-HD resolution and at maximum quality settings, and the hardware is also able to handle higher resolutions (if you connect the corresponding monitor). The "Overboost" mode does not lead to any increase in the frame rates (see comparison chart).

In order to evaluate whether the frame rates remain mostly constant over long time periods, we run the game "The Witcher 3" for about 60 minutes in Full-HD resolution and at maximum quality settings, without moving the gaming character. We do not notice any drop in the frame rates.
