Schenker XMG Neo 17: Moderate system noise while gaming

XMG Neo 17: Slim-bezel laptop with mechanical keyboard
The XMG Neo 17 from Schenker Technologies is a 17-inch gaming notebook that can be configured individually and has an enticing mechanical keyboard.
Florian Glaser (translated by Katherine Bodner), 🇩🇪

While most high-end laptops become rather loud during 3D applications, the XMG Neo 17 remains at a moderate level when you use the standard performance mode (as set in the Control Center). Sure, 43 to 47 dB max is still clearly audible, but at least you won't need to have a headset on hand at all times.

We feel that the performance lost in exchange for an acceptable noise level is bearable. If you need maximum performance, you can simply switch to overboost mode. In the case of the RTX 2060, this increases the frame rate by around 15% according to our test.   

The device also scored additional points for its rigid, high-quality case. The 144-Hz screen with a great contrast ratio and the mechanical keyboard are further reasons for purchase. The only thing missing is a Thunderbolt 3 port and a strong speaker.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.

I completed my master's degree in translation at the University of Vienna a few years ago and have been working as a translator for English, German and French ever since. I first started translating for Notebookcheck in 2017 and have learned more about computers than I ever imagined, and I have even become the person my family turns to for advice when it comes to consumer electronics. Other than that I also focus on everything connected to sustainability and renewable energy.
