Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22 review: Gaming laptop with RTX 3080 Ti delivers the goods

Exhilarating. The Intel Core i9-12900H, which is already powerful on its own, is not only supported by Nvidia's premium graphics card. The extensive connectivity and a very distinct cooling system also indicate that the laptop is striving for the highest performance. However, Schenker probably has another reason for calling the laptop a gaming workstation, and this also became noticeable in our review.

At first glance, Schenker has created a true gaming laptop with the XMG Pro 17 E22. Although the case won't win any design awards, the keyboard shines in any color desired in return. Large air vents and a pretty thick case allow sufficient cooling for the Intel Alder Lake processors, and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti or 3080 Ti, in order to ensure the high power supply needed for the correspondingly excellent performance rates. For about 2,500 to 3,500 Euros (~$2,557 to ~$3,840), you can configure an ambitious mid-range laptop or if you like, a pretty outstanding high-end laptop like the one we have with the Intel Core i9-12900H, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, 32 GB of RAM, and a 1 TB SSD.

But there's more. Instead of the typical sRGB display with a suitable QHD resolution, a precalibrated 4K display with coverage of the AdobeRGB color space can also be selected. However, this brings the price closer to 4,000 Euros (~$4,092). Quite a few desktop systems are likely to lag behind in video and image editing or rendering.

Consequently, the competition includes gaming laptops like the Acer Predator Triton 500SE, the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16, and the Alienware x17 R2, as well as the MSI Raider GE77, which is also aimed at creators.

Case - Modest gaming laptop with a lot of black

The black case, which is completely made of plastic in its lower part, looks less elegant, but very pragmatic. Only the back of the display is stabilized with an aluminum cover - also in black. However, anything else would've been surprising in view of the 17.3-inch size. Unfortunately, the surfaces are all very susceptible to fingerprints.

The screen can be opened comfortably with one hand, but then it wobbles a bit. Overall, it makes a stable impression, and it can hardly be twisted. This applies even more to the lower part. Despite a noticeable weight, the case remains almost perfectly level when held at a single corner. Models with a higher proportion of metal components don't manage this any better.

The only noticeable thing are the large ventilation openings that extend around the entire laptop. In addition, the bottom cover allows air exchange with the environment on almost half of its surface. This also provides clarity regarding where to place the laptop: A flat tabletop with enough space on both sides and towards the back.

It'd be hard to design a laptop that is much heavier and bigger. Naturally, this is due to the large screen and the powerful components. At the same time, these are provided with enough space inside the case for heat dissipation and ventilation. But the XMG Pro 17 e22 is only truly mobile and portable to a limited extent. A sufficiently large and sturdy bag is a prerequisite for carrying the device, which weighs about 3.5 kg including the power adapter.

You also have to consider that the thickness of 27 mm is accompanied by feet with a height of 5 mm, which ensure sufficient ground clearance for cooling.

Connectivity - Gaming on five displays

The large case with enough space has almost everything. The card reader, LAN port, four USB ports, and four video outputs leave nothing to be desired.

The placement of the power supply and three of the video ports on the back results in a clean workspace. Especially when used as a workstation, the variable monitor ports, each supporting up to 8K, could be an advantage. On the other hand, a single one would certainly be enough for gaming.

The layout isn't that flawless. Both USB-A ports are on the left, and they're also only 6 mm apart. This is enough most of the time, but USB sticks could block each other. Another USB port on the right would've improved the overall design. The decision for microSD cards doesn't make sense either. There would've been enough space for a full-fledged card slot.

SD card reader

Our reference card, the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60, remains far away from its potential. The gap to both the top scores as well as to the average among gaming laptops is considerable. Other laptops like the Alienware x17 R2 P48E can copy, read, and overwrite data three times as fast.

Communication

The Wi-Fi module offers no reason to complain at all. Its transfer rates remain absolutely constant in the test, and they're within the range of what's technically possible.

Webcam

Thanks to a Full HD resolution, but unfortunately only at 30 fps, the image quality is acceptable. Color deviations are also acceptable, and they don't lead to any color inaccuracies that are immediately visible. Especially when it comes to video calls, the webcam is well equipped.

The microphone also does a good job. If you don't speak directly into its direction, quality suffers a bit, but in general, the ability to pick up the user's voice independently of the direction is only important for business laptops.

Maintenance

There are no obstacles to perform later upgrades or to clean the fans. Although 16 screws still need to be removed, they're all openly accessible and of the same length. The entire bottom cover can then be removed without requiring much effort. It's recommended to begin in the area of the hinges.

This makes the double fan accessible. The battery can also be replaced easily. This applies even more to the RAM and M.2 SSDs. Two interfaces each are available here, which become occupied either at the time of purchase, or they can be upgraded later as well.

The Wi-Fi module is located in an unusual way since it's placed directly underneath the SSD. It can also be replaced. Overall, it's noticeable that there aren't any heat dissipating elements either for the SSD or for the RAM. This isn't the best decision due to the fact that internal temperatures can rise as a consequence of performance.

The Wi-Fi module is hidden underneath the SSD.

Input devices - XMG Pro 17 with a worthy gaming keyboard

Needless to say, the Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22 features an RGB keyboard. In addition to a few flowing, pulsating, and partly irritating color gradients, each key or a certain area can be customized. The travel of 1.5 mm should be praised. This is significantly higher than in standard laptop keyboards. Accordingly, typing is pleasant, which is also due to the good feedback. Only the slightly yielding keyboard frame could've been built more sturdily.

The 15 x 9 cm touchpad responds precisely and is easy to use. Almost the opposite has to be said about the two keys that are invisibly placed underneath the touchpad. The pressure point seems imprecise, and sometimes, only pressing harder triggers in an action. However, since a mouse will almost always be used with a gaming laptop or workstation, only a few users will be bothered by this.

Display - Solid rates for the Schenker gaming laptop

The XMG Pro 17 E22 that we reviewed features an almost classic gaming display. The most important aspects are ticked off with a QHD resolution, a refresh rate of 165 Hz, and the sRGB color space. In addition, 17.3 inches always look pretty impressive at short distances.

The contrast of about 1,100:1 is also compelling. This indicates a good black level because the maximum brightness is rather modest. Just under 300 cd/m² are hardly enough to see anything outdoors or to show the large contrast differences in HDR content. Neither is necessarily required for gaming, though.

A 4K display with AdobeRGB and 400 cd/m² is also available for professional media editing. This is definitely an option for demanding tasks while on the go. Otherwise, there are so many video ports available that the appropriate monitors can also be connected later.

We didn't notice PWM flickering at different brightness levels.

* ... smaller is better

As promised by Schenker, we measure almost complete coverage of the sRGB color space in the XMG Pro 17 E22's display. DCI-P3, which is used in cinema productions, for example, is almost fully covered as well. The AdobeRGB color space, which includes larger green and blue ranges, is still covered by over 80%. In any case, the display proves to be rich in colors.

And it's tuned very accurately. Even before calibration, we measure a DeltaE of 2.5. A color deviation of less than 3 is no longer perceptible to the naked eye. The fact that the value drops to only 0.6 afterwards clearly speaks for the panel. The corresponding color profile is available for download in the box containing the display details.

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
6.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.9 ms rise
↘ 3.9 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 11 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.3 ms rise
↘ 3.1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (36.2 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19681 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Schenker's gaming laptop isn't necessarily truly portable, which is why the display's usability in sunlight is only rarely requested. Despite a rather low peak brightness, text in particular remains easy to read.

In contrast, colors fade in an environment that is too bright. However, no significant problems should arise on a shady balcony, especially since the slightly matte display does a good job of preventing annoying reflections.

As expected, the IPS panel remains easily legible from any viewing angle. There are no color or contrast changes even far beyond the 45° range.

Performance - i9 and RTX 3080 Ti with a lot of headroom

The Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22 certainly doesn't lack performance resources. With the i9-12900H Intel Alder Lake processor and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the system uses hardware that has proven to be fast, and it's even well equipped for highly complex programs.

With the i7-12700H and the RTX 3070 Ti, it would still be possible to save on the processor as well as the graphics card. This entry-level variant would still be more than sufficient for modern games, even if some titles couldn't be played at full details. If gaming is the focus, though, the RTX 3080 Ti at least seems quite sensible, while the slightly less powerful processor shouldn't cause any problems.

If the XMG Pro 17 E22 is intended to be a workstation and gaming laptop at the same time, the maximum configuration is recommended, and preferably combined with a minimum of 32 GB of RAM.

The spacious case allows a high power consumption since there's enough room for cooling. For a short time, the processor has 125 watts at its disposal. The graphics card consumes up to 155 watts, where 25 watts can be redirected from the CPU in the form of a "Dynamic Boost".

There are four modes available to adapt this performance to the respective task or work environment. We always used Performance Mode for our benchmarks. In addition, there's a slightly scaled-down Entertainment Mode, an incredibly efficient Silent Mode (the name is by no means accurate), and a Power Saving Mode that can add nearly another 10% of battery life when using the laptop on battery power.

Interestingly, power consumption in Silent Mode is set even lower than in Power Saving Mode. This mode is correspondingly cool and quiet, but the fans are always audible, and you can work without having to put up with significant performance losses in everyday tasks.

Silent Mode 35 W 65 W
Power Saving Mode 45 W 65 W

Processor

With a total of 14 cores and 20 threads, there isn't much that can shake the Intel Core i9-12900H. The processor's maximum clock rate of 5 GHz also speaks for its performance. In particular, the "Alder Lake" models can clearly outperform Intel CPUs from previous generations. AMD is also left behind in our Cinebench R15 endurance test. Our CPU Benchmarks article provides a complete overview of the performance rates of the different processors.

However, because Schenker "only" allows a maximum of 125 watts and 115 watts over longer periods of time in the XMG Pro 17 E22, even laptops with the i7-12700H can match it. Other gaming laptops with identical CPUs, such as the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G533ZW, simply allow a higher power consumption, which naturally improves the raw processor performance. In this specific case, an increase of 15% in power consumption translates into a 10% gain in results. The extent to which the increased cooling requirement has an impact on the graphics performance is another story, though.

Processing power is greatly reduced in battery mode. The processor is only allowed just under 25 watts. The registered clock rates also drop from 3.5 to 1.5 GHz. Consequently, the scores in Cinebench R15 drop to about one half compared to the maximum performance.

First Cinebench at maximum performance, then on battery power.

System performance

The XMG Pro 17 ranks high in PCMark 10. It scores just above the average of identically configured models in this very realistic test. The MSI Raider GE77, which is even more powerful on paper, is 12% behind.

This result can be verified when using the laptop. The number of programs that are open at the same time is almost irrelevant. There's always enough performance available.

The most remarkable fact, however, is that the rates in Silent Mode would have been enough to achieve the same score. This means that users don't have to put up with a loud fan or an overly warm case in order to use the laptop smoothly. Furthermore, the gaming FPS only drops by about 10% to 20% in this mode.

Schenker's decision to do without DDR5 RAM has a bit of an impact on the system performance. The main reason for this is the lower prices for the modules, while the improvement expected compared to DDR4 is in the range of a few percentage points.

DPC latencies

In comparison to the competition, the Schenker XMG Pro 17 E22 scores quite passably when it comes to DPC latencies. However, this isn't sufficient to perform live audio editing, for example, even if the value of the highest interruption remains below one thousandth of a second. The power management and DirectX drivers cause the longest pauses.

The YouTube 4K video playback wasn't entirely perfect, either. Those 9 dropped frames - as seen in the screenshot - aren't much. However, a gaming workstation should be able to do an even better job.

Storage

The built-in Samsung SSD 980 Pro delivers the expected rates. At least during sequential reading, it achieves the transfer rates that PCIe 4.0 allows. However, the lack of thermal dissipation becomes noticeable during prolonged load. This is only a decisive factor when transferring very large amounts of data, while it hardly plays a role in everyday use.

Nevertheless, the Acer Predator Triton 500 SE, for example, demonstrates that the SSD's performance doesn't necessarily have to drop.
