Schenker XMG Neo 17 M22 in review: High performance gaming laptop with mechanical Cherry MX keys

Maximum performance! The Schenker XMG Neo 17 barely compromises on anything. With AMD's Ryzen 9 6900HX and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU, gamers have a lot to get excited over. In this review, we will go into more detail regarding the actual performance and new features of the M22 model.

XMG are the three letters that denote the flagship Schenker gaming laptops. The latest Schenker XMG Neo 17, which as the name suggests, is a 17-inch laptop, is also part of this series. Many will be pleased to find that unlike many other gaming laptops, the Schenker uses a 16:10 display that lends itself slightly better to work-focused tasks. In order to ensure an appropriate performance level, the manufacturer installs AMD's brand-new Ryzen 9 6900HX in combination with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU in the modern chassis. Thus, it is one of the absolute fastest models currently available. With 32 GB of DDR5 RAM and a 1-TB SSD, the system is well rounded. However, with a price of about 4200 USD, our configuration of the Schenker XMG Neo 17 is not exactly cheap.

Readers who are familiar with Schenker will know how many configuration options the manufactuere usually offers. This also applies to this model, for which the base model starts with the same CPU and a GeForce RTX 3070 Ti laptop GPU at around 2950 USD.

For comparison purposes, we also included devices with similar specifications. The following table shows a list of these laptops.

Chassis - Very Robust Base

Visually, the Schenker XMG Neo 17 is quite obviously a Schenker gaming laptop. It appears subtle and omits flashy RGB lighting. The matte metal surfaces offer premium aesthetics, although fingerprints become visible on them after a very short amount of time. Plastic is the material of choice for the display bezels and the base unit. The latter is coated with a soft touch layer. Thankfully, it is slightly less susceptible to fingerprints. In spite of the size, the base is fairly rigid. Under pressure the Neo 17 shows itself to be robust and only yields slightly under a large amount of pressure. The same holds true for the lid. The centered hinges are up to the task and prevent excessive teetering well.

Size Comparison

With 2.8 kg (6.17 lbs), the Schenker XMG Neo 17 falls into the middle range in terms of the weight. The powerful 330-watt AC adapter almost weighs an additional kilogram (980 grams/2.16 lbs).

Connectivity - Unfortunately no Thunderbolt 4

The Schenker XMG Neo 17 M22 offers a good variety of external interfaces. The three USB-A ports are distributed across both sides for comfortably day-to-day use. Meanwhile, ports that are used less frequently such as HDMI or LAN are located on the back. The AC adapter is also plugged in here and thus does not interfere with the peripherals while on mains. Unfortunately, since the AC adapter's plug is angled, using the adjacent ports requires more patience when the power cord is routed toward the right side behind the device. Additionally, the barrel plug can be plugged in very easily making it prone to accidental unplugging.

SD Card Reader

The Schenker XMG Neo 17 M22 is equipped with an SD card reader that supports USB-3 speeds. At 69 MB/s, its performance is still just on par with similar devices. Both the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo and the Razer Blade 17 demonstrate the speeds of which our reference card (Angelbird AV Pro V60) is capable of with the UHS-II standard.

Communication

Wi-Fi module

Schenker uses an AMD RZ608 as the Wi-Fi module of choice in our device. The base option is not able to outperform its competitors in our testing. The Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 and the Rivet Networks Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650x are available as alternative configuration options. We would have also liked to see a Wi-Fi 6E option. Wired networking is possible at up to 2.5 Gb/s - a good choice.

Webcam

There are not many gaming laptops with good webcams. Similarly, the Schenker XMG Neo 17's webcam is lacking both in terms of the color accuracy and the sharpness, as our pictures show. Since the integrated camera supports "Windows Hello", it can be used as an authentication method.

The scope of delivery includes the device itself, a 330-watt AC adapter, and a USB thumbdrive with drivers. With the Schenker Oasis, the XMG Neo 17 M22 offers an optional, external watercooling solution. It is available separately for approximately 200 USD on Schenker's online store.

Maintenance

Since there is no maintenance hatch on the Schenker XMG Neo 17 for quick access to the RAM and SSD, swapping these components is somewhat difficult. As a result, the bottom plate has to be removed, which is not a simple task due to the many plastic clips that further secure it. Regardless, the bottom cover can be removed with a firm yank from below near the air vents.

Input Devices - Cherry MX Switches - but not for all keys?

Keyboard

Keyboard (illuminated)

The 17-inch laptop boasts a mechanical keyboard based on Cherry MX switches. They are known for their robustness and extreme longevity. They offer a shallow travel of just 1.8 mm and a distinct actuation point for a good overall feedback. Since the keys are not dampened, there is no spongy feeling while typing. Mechanical keyboards rarely offer quiet key clatter. This also holds true for the XMG Neo 17. Users should be sure of their preference for and tolerance of distinct audible clicking. Those who prefer quiet keyboards may want to look elsewhere.

There is a plausible explanation as to why Schenker does not use Cherry MX switches for all the keys. Due to space constraints, the half-height keys of the first row cannot use mechanical switches. This leaves the numpad, which also relies on standard rubber dome switches. According to the manufacturer, this decision was made to lower the weight and costs. Acoustically, the traditional switches are significantly quieter and the characteristic rubber dome key presses feel somewhat dampened, although this behavior is not too pronounced in this case.

The backlight of the keyboard can be adjusted via the Control Center. Users are able to choose between various effects and the entire color palette.

Touchpad

Touchpad / Clickpad
Touchpad / Clickpad

With 15.5 x 10 centimeters, the touchpad is very large and potentially even too large for some users. In order to counteract this, the right side of the input surface can be disabled. In this case, there is no visual or haptic clue that shows where the touchpad ends. Users who do not need the clickpad at all may also disable it entirely. This can be accomplished by pressing the white dot near the top left corner twice. The glass surface is slightly satinized for a slightly more comfortable user experience with sweaty fingers. We encountered a minor issue with the clickpad's responsiveness near the edges. Although it would then respond in a more sluggish manner, its large size mostly compensates for this. The two buttons in the bottom part of the pad work well and offer relatively quiet clicks.

Display - 240 Hz and 16:10 Form Factor

Minor backlight bleeding near the edges
Minor backlight bleeding near the edges

The 17-inch 240-Hz IPS panel is fixed on the Schenker XMG Neo 17. The 16:10 form factor offers a few advantages over the more common 16:9 form factor particularly when it comes to productivity.

While according to our measurements, the panel reaches a good brightness level of 399 nits, some competitors are able to produce even better results. In fairness, our measured value slightly exceeds the specifications of the XMG Neo 17 (data sheet: 380 nits). The contrast somewhat suffers from a combination of the brightness and black value, resulting in a ratio of just 965:1. This is still significantly better compared to the two MSI competitors.

Users are unlikely to experience eye strain due to PWM with the Schenker XMG Neo 17. However, there is some minor backlight bleeding. It only becomes apparent in dark scenes near the edges, however.

* ... smaller is better

The display quality is good across the board and we did not observe graininess due to the matte display layer. Furthermore, our measurements indicate that Schenker precalibrates the display of the Schenker Neo 17. Ex-factory, we record  grayscale and color deltaE-2000 values of less than 3 each, which is the ideal range. Regardless, we were able to further improve these results by manually calibrating the display. The Neo 17 reaches the advertised sRGB color space coverage of 99 percent. However, it only covers 69 percent of the extended color spaces AdobeRGB and P3, making it unsuitable for anything beyond non-professional photo and video editing.

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
6.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.5 ms rise
↘ 3.6 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 0.4 (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 (22.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
10.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5.1 ms rise
↘ 5.7 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. » 15 % 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 19613 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The matte display coating is well suited to outdoor use. Regardless, the readability is limited outside of the shade. In particular, users should avoid using the screen under direct sunlight.

Performance - AMD and Nvidia United

With the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU, our test device is ready for the latest games at the maximum detail settings on a laptop. The generous system memory configuration of 32 GB leaves users more than enough wiggle room and supports the new DDR5 standard. In typical Schenker fashion, users can adjust the configuration according to their preferences and create an optimal system. The CPU and the 17-inch panel are fixed, however.

Processor

AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX during the Cinebench R15 loop
AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX during the Cinebench R15 loop

The AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX is an octa-core CPU based on the latest Zen-3 architecture. The SoC has a clock speed of 3.3-4.9 GHz boost and supports SMT for a total of 16 threads. However, the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX faces tough competition with Intel 12th Gen, which can be significantly faster in a direct comparison.

The AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX in the Schenker XMG Neo 17 M22 is able to maintain a consistent performance level during our test. It should be noted that the CPU performance dropps by about 10 percent in battery mode.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon shows increased latencies after opening multiple browser tabs in Edge. The latencies increase slightly after playing a 4K YouTube video and initializing Prime95. Future driver or BIOS optimizations may improve the issue. Playing our 4K test video uses about 10 percent of the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX' iGPU.

Storage Solution

Samsung 980 Pro (NVMe SSD)
Samsung 980 Pro (NVMe SSD)

Our test sample comes with a Samsung 980 Pro. However, users may choose between Seagate, Crucial, and Corsair models for the XMG Neo 17. While ordering, users will have to decide between the various models. While the SSD of our test device is sufficiently large at 1 TB, we advise against choosing a smaller capacity to prevent constantly running out of storage space. Under load, the sequential read and write performance is excellent, netting the Schenker XMG Neo 17 a good overall result in this category.

The XMG Neo 17 can be equipped with up to two M.2 SSDs.
