Schenker XMG Ultra 17 (Clevo X170KM-G) in review: Massive powerhouse with lush equipment

More power. Schenker's DTR notebook scores with brute computing power and extensive maintenance, connection and expansion options. Thus, the processor and graphics core could be replaced in addition to the working memory and storage media.
Sascha Mölck, 👁 Florian Glaser, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

Visually, the 2021 model of the XMG Ultra 17 has not changed compared to its Predecessor. Innovations are found on the technical side. Rocket Lake processors (Comet Lake CPUs are still available) and Ampere GPUs are now used. Instead of one Thunderbolt 3 slot, two Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 slots are used. Competitors include devices like the MSI GT76 Titanium DT 10SGS, the Alienware m17 R4 and the Asus Strix Scar 17 G732LXS.

Since the XMG Ultra 17 is identical in construction to the 2020 model, we will not go further into the case, the equipment, the input devices and the speakers. The corresponding information can be found in the Review of the Schenker XMG Ultra 17 (2020).

Display - 300 Hz IPS

While the matte 17.3-inch screen (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) delivers a good contrast (1,391:1), the brightness (299.3 cd/m²) barely meets the target (> 300 cd/m²). The 300 Hz panel offers short response times and does not show PWM flickering.

The display supports Nvidia's G-Sync technology. This dynamically adjusts the refresh rates of the display and GPU to each other. This is supposed to create the smoothest possible picture - especially in computer games.

* ... smaller is better

The screen already shows a good color reproduction in its state of delivery and meets the target with a deviation of just under 2 (Delta E less than 3). It does not suffer from a blue cast. A calibration provides improvements: The color deviation drops to 1.34 and the grayscale levels are displayed more balanced. The display cannot completely reproduce the AdobeRGB (72%) and sRGB (93%) color spaces.

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
9.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.8 ms rise
↘ 4.4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (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 (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
5.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2.8 ms rise
↘ 2.8 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 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.2 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 9706 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The viewing-angle stable IPS panel can be read from any position. It is quite possible to read the display outdoors if the sun is not too bright.

Performance - XMG Ultra 17 allows CPU and GPU swap

Schenker's desktop replacement notebook offers a lot of computing power and performs accordingly in all common application areas. The device can be configured very individually.

Test conditions

The pre-installed Control Center allows selecting a performance profile, among other things. We performed our 3D tests with an active "Performance Mode" profile and automatic fan control. We used the "Entertainment Mode" profile for the idle and battery tests.

 

Processor

The Core-i9-11900K eight-core processor (Rocket Lake) works with a base clock of 3.5 GHz. The clock can be increased to 4.8 GHz (eight cores) up to 5.3 GHz (single core) via Turbo. Hyperthreading (two threads per core) is supported. Thanks to the free multiplier, the processor could be overclocked quite easily. The CPU is in a socket and could thus be swapped.

The CPU tests of the Cinebench R15 benchmark are run with 4.6 to 4.8 GHz (multi-thread) and 4.8 to 5.3 GHz (single-thread). On battery power, the CPU runs at 800 MHz to 4.8 GHz (multi-thread) or 3.6 to 5.1 GHz (single-thread).

Multi-thread (network operation)
Multi-thread (network operation)
Single thread (network operation)
Single thread (network operation)

We check whether the CPU Turbo is also used permanently in mains operation by running the multi-thread test of the Cinebench R15 benchmark in a loop. High speeds are achieved within the first minute of the test. Then, the clock drops to values around 4 GHz.

Rocket Lake leaves a good impression. Intel was able to increase the per-MHz performance significantly. As a result, the lack of two CPU cores compared to the Comet Lake predecessor (Core i9-10900Kcan be compensated to a certain degree in multi-thread applications.The11900K can show off in terms of single-thread performanceIt is ahead of its predecessor here.

Mass storage

An NVMe SSD (M.2-2280) from Samsung serves as the system drive. It provides 2 TB of storage space and delivers excellent transfer rates thanks to the PCI Express 4 connection. The notebook has three additional M.2-2280 slots that can be equipped with NVMe-SSDs (connection via PCI Express 3.0). Two of the three slots could alternatively accommodate SATA SSDs. RAID 0/1/5 is supported.

Graphics card

The GeForce RTX-3080 laptop graphics core represents Nvidia's currently most powerful notebook GPU. It can draw on fast GDDR6 graphics memory (16,384 MB). GPU and memory are not permanently soldered to the motherboard, but sit on an MXM plug-in card. Swapping the card would be possible. The processor-integrated UHD Graphics Xe-750-32EUs GPU is disabled ex-factory and the notebook does not work with Nvidia's switching graphics solution Optimus.

Notebook manufacturers can choose the TGP and thus the maximum available computing power of an RTX-3000 graphics core quite freely within the limits defined by Nvidia (Overview of all RTX-3080 laptops including the TGPsSchenker chooses the maximum of 165 watts (150 watts + 15 watts Dynamic Boost). As a result, the Ultra 17 performs very well in the GPU and gaming tests.

Gaming performance

The computer brings all current games smoothly to the screen. Usually, FHD resolution and maximum quality settings can be selected. Higher resolutions (a corresponding monitor would have to be connected for this) are also handled by the GPU.
