Gamers who are not interested in flashy optics but prefer a simple case might want to take a look at the Schenker XMG Pro 15. With its combination of a Core i7-9750H and a GeForce RTX 2070 as well as a Full-HD 144-Hz screen with optional G-Sync ensures that all current titles can be displayed smoothly at maximum settings.
Users can turn on Nvidia's graphics switching technology Optimus when they depend on battery life - although that still only promises a maximum runtime of 5 hours. We weren't particularly impressed by the cooling fans, either. Although the device is nicely quiet most of the time while idling, the fans do occasionally turn up for no reason. The 15-inch notebook is generally very loud during 3D applications, despite most of its competition being significantly thinner. We would recommend the manufacturer takes another look at this issue - particularly considering that there's still a little wiggle room in terms of temperatures.

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.
