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.
