Reviews for the Schenker XMG P505

85% Clevo P651SE (Schenker XMG P505) Barebones Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Full speed ahead. After the top GPUs from the last Nvidia generation were still based on the Kepler architecture, both the GeForce GTX 980M and GTX 970 finally use the Maxwell architecture. We check the performance with the Clevo P651SE Barebone.
60% Schenker XMG P505 review
Source: Expert Reviews English
The Schenker XMG P505 is a powerful and nicely built laptop, perfect for gaming and multimedia tasks. Its main problem is the screen, which is worse than some significantly cheaper laptops. Considering how much choice you have in the market, with the likes of Aorus and MSI producing some stunning looking machines with better screens, it's hard to recommend. At this price, you should consider the slightly more expensive Aorus X7 v2 or the MSI GS70 2QE Stealth Pro, which is cheaper and only slightly less powerful. If none of those fit your needs then check out our regularly-updated Best Laptops and buying guide.

Starting with the overall design of the P505 we have a laptop which is essentially pretty plain to look at, though that is no bad thing. It looks decent and there are no garish sections which often feature on gaming laptops. The build quality is decent, though there is plastic mixed in with the aluminium.

Comment

Model:

The fully customizable, pro-gaming Schenker XMG P505 laptop certainly comes with the needed performance. With its durable metal casing, in full black, with a modern edgy design is looks good. The low profile design hides impressive hardware and the island-style backlit keyboard accents the appearance with style. The non-glare 15.6 inch Full HD IPS display delivers crisps images and good colors.

There is an option for a QFHD 4K panel but at additional cost. At the heart of the laptop is an Intel Core i7-4870HQ quad-core processor clocked at 2.50 GHz with Iris Intel Pro 5200 as the highest possible upgrade option. The Schenker XMG P505 comes with a basic of 4 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM and a plethora of upgrade options. The highest selectable graphics card is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M with 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM.

Internal storage can be selected from different hard disk and SSD sizes with the option to even combine multiple drives. Sound quality is good with a Sound Blaster X-FI MB3 driving the speakers. Other hardware includes a card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, a 2 MP webcam and an HDMI out. The Schenker XMG P505's 4-cell lithium ion battery lasts about 5 hours on low load.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

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.  

4870HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.7 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
