Schenker XMG Pro 17 with RTX 3080 (Clevo PC70HS) review: A throttled ultra-slim gaming laptop and workstation in one

More a workstation than a gaming laptop. Like its 15-inch sibling model, the new XMG Pro 17 also comes in an ultra-slim case, while still bringing an RTX 3080. To avoid potential problems with the cooling system, Schenker throttles this. We find out in this test, whether this concept succeeds and why the slim high-performance laptop is more of a workstation than a gaming device.

The last time we tested the 17-inch version of the XMG Pro was in the beginning of 2020, and a lot has happened since then. As we saw in the 15-inch version in March of last year, Schenker has completely reworked the design, turning a case that used to be thick into a particularly slim system with high-performance hardware that is targeted for gamers as well as creative professionals. We now ask whether this ultra-slim design can offer sufficient power for gamers and professionals at the same time.

The predecessor with its RTX 2060 and Intel Core i7-9750H is hardly suited for comparison anymore. For the benchmarks, we therefore use other competitors such as the Alienware x17 R1, the Medion Erazer Beast X25, and the significantly more expensive Asus ROG Zephyrus S17 and MSI GS76 Stealth 11UH, as well as the 15-inch XMG Pro 15 sibling model for comparison.

Case - Ultra-slim metal case with a plastic keyboard

Maximum opening angle: 130 degrees
Maximum opening angle: 130 degrees

The slim, black case is now almost completely made of metal, except for the display bezels and the keyboard that is set into the base. For a gaming laptop, the design is kept very modest, reflecting more its parallel ambitions of being a professional workstation.

The basis is not completely resistant to warping but still fairly robust, even though it still produces various creaking noises when we try to bend it, particularly on the right side.

Although the display lid can also be bent slightly, it appears comfortably robust due to the metal frame. The hinges could have been tighter, particularly with small opening angles.

Schenker offers various 17-inch laptops, but the new XMG Pro 17 can easily beat the Key, Apex, Core, Ultra, Focus, Neo, and the predecessor in terms of a slim design. It is a full centimeter (~0.4 in) slimmer, making it the slimmest 17-inch Schenker overall!

The MSI and the Asus ROG are similarly slim but cost considerably more. The Alienware and the Medion cannot quite keep up here, even if at least the Alienware is anything but thick.

Equipment - 3 external monitors

With Thunderbolt 4 (USB-C without a charging function), MiniDisplayport, and HDMI, you can connect three external monitors to the Pro 17. All the display ports are G-Sync compatible. The separate ports for microphone and headphones are also positive.

On the other hand, professional users will probably miss an SD card reader, and the positioning of the connections also gives some small reason for complaint. Even though the ports are distributed over the back, left, and right sides, unfortunately they are placed very close together. In this regard, all the manufacturers should take a look at the affordable MSI GP66 Leopard as a good example.

Webcam

Despite the target group being creative professionals, there is a standard 720p webcam that struggles with even larger color deviations than the competitors, which are already not very good.

Security

There is a Kensington Lock slot and also TPM 2.0. In addition, the Pro 17 offers a fingerprint sensor, which is integrated into the top left corner of the touchpad.

The sensor operates in combination with Windows Hello and succeeds in unlocking the laptop very quickly.

Accessories

In addition to the usual paperwork, as typical for Schenker the box includes a USB stick with drivers and alternatively also a driver CD, as well as a black cleaning cloth. Other manufacturers only include less or no accessories at all.

Maintenance

The bottom of the case is secured with 12 Philips screws. After removing them, it is not too hard to pry open the bottom plate although it is made of solid metal. Once you get access to the insides, you can replace the two RAM modules, the WLAN module, and the SSD and also clean the two fans. There is space for a second SSD, and the battery is also accessible.

Warranty

XMG offers a two-year manufacturer warranty. When ordering the laptop, you can also expand this to three years at an extra cost. In contrast to many other manufacturers, the warranty service also includes a free inspection. After you send in the laptop for free, it is cleaned, the heat paste is renewed, and the firmware is updated to the newest version. If you like, Windows can also be reinstalled with all the current updates.

Input Devices - Small keys on a keyboard that bends too much

Keyboard

The keyboard
The keyboard

The keys look fairly small, particularly for a 17-inch laptop. But the layout looks very clean, and there is a number block. Unfortunately, there is no gap between the regular keyboard and the number block, so that the regular-sized arrow keys are not placed separately but positioned between the two keyboard halves.

It is not apparent at first glance, but the keyboard, which is set into the metal base, is only made from thin plastic. This means that the thin plate below the keys bends down a lot, moving in visible waves while typing. This is a bit much for us and becomes annoying.

The stroke height turns out mediocre, but the feedback is clear and typing is fairly comfortable. Only the small size of the keys is slightly annoying. The typing noise is very moderate.

The keyboard offers a separate RGB illumination for each key, allowing you to illuminate the WASD keys in a different color, for example, to make them stand out more from the other keys. The settings for this are contained in the Control Center.

Touchpad

The touchpad

The touchpad is fairly large (~13 x 6.8 cm, ~5.1 x 2.7 in) with dedicated mouse keys below. The fingerprint sensor is integrated in the left, top corner. Finger movements above and to the left of that are not registered.

The surface allows easy sliding of the fingers, and there are hardly any stutters even in slow movements.

The extra mouse keys below are wide and make a good impression at first glance. The volume of the mouse clicks is also at a moderate level. However, when listening closely, the keys produce some slight squeaking noise. 

Display - 4K with a high color space coverage

A matte, grainy pixel grid
A matte, grainy pixel grid

The matte 4K IPS display is the same that is used in the Schenker XMG Ultra 17 from last year. Unfortunately, you have to make do without a higher refresh rate due to the 4K resolution. Alternatively, the laptop is also available with a Full-HD display and fast 300 Hz.

In addition, the panel is very bright, and the brightness distribution is still decent. The black value and contrast are also at a good level, with the latter being even slightly higher than that of the competitors.

What is less good is the very lame response time. In combination with the lower refresh rate, this also shows that the XMG Pro 17 with the 4K display is targeted more towards creative professionals, while gamers might rather choose the Full-HD model, depending on their preference.

We did not detect any PWM. Even looking very closely in the dark, we can only see some minimal screen bleeding at the bottom edge (but it is not visible in the screenshot), so this is not problematic.

* ... smaller is better

Schenker advertises the display as color calibrated by X-Rite, but the color deviations still leave room for improvement. Warm, red tones are dominating, at least at full brightness. A manual calibration decreases the Delta-E value further, and you can download the corresponding ICC profile file from the link further above.

The display is very well suited for image processing and video editing, since various color spaces are covered well. While sRGB and AdobeRGB are covered completely, DCI-P3 is still covered to 87%.

The 4K panel of the Alienware and the 2K panel of the Asus Zephyrus are similarly good, and the Medion Erazer Beast and the MSI GS76 Stealth turn out worse here, but this is also a matter of the price.

Display Response Times

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
32.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.6 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 87 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 78 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (33.5 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17673 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the matte surface, the high brightness of more than 400 Nits, the good viewing angles, and the fairly high contrast will benefit, allowing you to read the display contents in most situations without being impacted much.

The viewing angle stability is decent, even though the brightness decreases noticeably from extreme viewing angles. There are IPS panels with even more stable viewing angles.

Performance - Throttled for the slim case

Schenker advertises the XMG Pro 17 targeting gamers as well as professional users. The Intel Core i7-11800H and particularly the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU, and also the ample 32 GB of RAM support this cause. On the other hand, the 4K display with only 60 Hz but very good color space coverage shows that the laptop aims slightly more towards the needs of creative users rather than gamers. Also, you wouldn't really expect the highest gaming performance from an ultra-slim design either. For example, the TGP of the graphics card is limited to relatively weak 105 watts.

The XMG performance modes

Schenker is fairly transparent about the performance values of its various performance profiles. The manufacturer officially recommends the "Entertainment" mode as the best compromise between noise volume and performance. However, since we measure all the gaming laptops in the best performance mode (without overclocking), we change to the "Performance" mode in the Control Center. Only here, the GPU is also allowed to use the Dynamic Boost, and the TDPs of the CPU are also slightly higher. The image below shows the performance values of all the modes as listed by Schenker.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-11800H offers an ample eight cores that have a clock speed between 2.3 and 4.6 GHz.

In the Cinebench loop, the values drop by about 7% within the first four or five loops, but they remain stable after that.

Even though they use the same CPU, the XMG Pro is unable to keep up with the powerful, unthrottled Alienware X17 in the multi-core test, and the rest of the competitors are slightly ahead of it. However, these small differences are not relevant in everyday operation, and only the Alienware is significantly faster by 10 to 15%.

In the single-core tests, the differences between the laptops are significantly smaller.

In battery mode, the CPU performance is considerably lower. After an initial value of 13 watts, the TDP decreases to only 11.5 watts. Correspondingly, the score drops from 1,865 - 2,009 to only 534 points, which is a decrease of at least 71%!

System Performance

In PCMark 10, the XMG Pro doesn't necessarily deliver the most powerful performance, to say it mildly. Usually, the competitors in the test remain fairly close together, but our test unit always remains behind the competitors by about 8% (MSI) to 18% (Alienware). While in this performance class, this won't really be that noticeable in everyday operation since everything runs smoothly, for performance enthusiasts, the PCMark scores of the slim laptop are a disappointment.

DPC Latencies

When just opening the web browser (Edge), the LatencyMon software already encounters some latency problems. These increase when playing our 4K, 60-fps YouTube test video (32 dropped frames) or briefly starting the Prime95 test.

The fault appears to lie mainly in the ACPI driver for NT, but there is also an Nvidia driver that creates some problems for the system.

However, in our comparison the size of the latency value is more in the middle of the field, and the comparison laptops are also not free of problems. It is only that their latencies start later and definitely not when just starting the browser.

Storage Solution

Schenker uses the proven and fast Samsung SSD 980 Pro with 1 TB of storage space. Its performance is at the top end, and only the PM9A1 (MSI, Asus Zephyrus) from the same manufacturer is slightly faster in some areas.

During the constant read test, the very high performance drops slightly over time, but it should still be higher than that of some competitors.

Graphics Card

The 16-GB version of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU is used, but it is only allowed to consume 90 watts plus 15 watts Dynamic Boost, resulting in a total maximum of 105 watts. In contrast, the Zephyrus S17 reaches up to 140 watts and the Alienware X17 R1 even 165 watts. This shows that the Schenker has to make some compromises due to the slim case, aiming more for efficiency rather than maximum performance.

While the configuration of our test unit does not offer advanced Optimus, you can choose in the BIOS for the USB-C port via MUX, whether it should be connected via iGPU or dGPU.

In the 3DMark tests, the XMG Pro correspondingly performs slightly below the average, but it still fares better than the MSI or even the Medion laptop in some areas. The Asus ROG Zephyrus and the Alienware are clearly faster.

In battery mode, most of the 3D performance is lost. Instead of running at 90 - 107 fps, "The Witcher 3 Ultra" only runs at 8 - 10 fps, which leaves it unplayable. So away from the outlet, you can only play casual or ancient games.
