Reviews for the Schenker XMG P407

84.6% Schenker Technologies XMG P407 (Clevo P641HK1) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Compact gamer. Schenker's 14-inch device runs all games smoothly on the matte IPS display. The features are good as well, with an NVMe SSD and HDD combination, 16 GB of RAM, and a good keyboard on-board. An LTE/UMTS modem can also be installed in the computer if needed.

Comment

Model:

Schenker XMG P407 is the successor of the XMG P406. Externally, the two devices do not differ. But internally, quite a bit has changed. The XMG P407 carries an Intel Kaby Lake processor and a Nvidia Pascal graphics core. Due to the manageable number of 14-inch gaming notebooks, the XMG P407 does not have much competition. Two examples would be the Razer Blade (2016) and the Gigabyte P34W v5. The XMG P407 is made of metal and has a sturdy base unit, making the XMG P407 particularly rigid and therefore ideal for the ultra-mobile use of a power user.  With an overall height of 25mm, the XMG P407 has the ideal dimensions: it is thin enough to fit into any bag, but still, has enough housing volume to cool the built-in high-performance components properly. The symmetrically constructed cooling system with two fans and two heat pipes provides perfect balancing between CPU and GPU cooling. The high level of serviceability and modular design make later upgrades of RAM, SSD, hard drive, WLAN or LTE module. All slots are located on the underside of the laptop, eliminating the need to remove the keyboard during hard-core upgrades or service operations. The fans can be cleaned very quickly with a compressed air spray after the service cover has been opened, and the battery can also be easily exchanged with a few screwdrivers.

 

It should come as no surprise that Intel's Core i7-7700HQ (Kaby Lake) quad-core processor made its way into the XMG P407 as well. It constitutes a good compromise between processing power and energy consumption and is therefore ideally suited for (mobile) gaming notebooks. The CPU is clocked at a base speed of 2.8 GHz; this can be increased to 3.4 GHz (four cores), 3.6 GHz (two cores), or 3.8 GHz (one core) via Turbo. The system works smoothly and without hiccups, thanks to the combination of a powerful CPU and a fast NVMe SSD. Schenker uses a Samsung SSD as the system drive. This M.2 model (SM961) offers a total capacity of 256GB. The XMG P407 is delivered with an active switchable graphics solution (Optimus). Intel's integrated HD Graphics 630 comes into action in everyday use and battery mode. Nvidia's GeForce GTX1050 Ti is responsible for demanding applications such as computer games. The GTX1050 Ti is an upper mid-range model based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture. The GPU has access to 4096 MB of GDDR5 graphics memory. The matte 14-inch display of the XMG P407 runs at a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The display offers good contrast (1104:1) and decent brightness (281.6 cd/m2). As for input and output, it features the new USB connector type C can be used in any orientation. USB 3.1 offers up to 10GBit/s transmission speed and therefore, more than twice as fast as the previous version. In addition, one of the two Mini DisplayPorts is now equipped with the 1.4 standards.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Notebook): Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 965M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.118 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


84.6%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
