Schenker XMG Ultra 17: Expensive and loud but super fast
If you want to get the maximum performance out of a laptop, the XMG Ultra 17 is the right choice. The massive 17-incher can be equipped with a Core i9-10900K, a GeForce RTX 2080 Super, 128 GB of RAM, and up to four M.2 SSDs.

The XMG Ultra 17 from Schenker Technologies is extreme in almost every respect. While the case is incredibly large and heavy (4.7 kg), the fastest components that are currently available for laptops from Intel and Nvidia are packed under the hood.

The combination of the Core i9-10900K and the GeForce RTX 2080 Super has no trouble with demanding applications. Even on the optional 4K display, which boasts a generous color space, performance is usually sufficient to provide smooth frame rates at maximum settings.

Speaking of generous: Hardly any other laptop offers as many connections as the XMG Ultra 17. In addition to various USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, there are also several video outputs on board, for example. However, the whole fun comes at a price: The configuration tested by us costs just under 5,000 Euros (~$5,873).

In addition, the high-end components also ensure a high noise level, enormous power consumption (2 power adapters required!), and mediocre battery life.

Growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 90s, I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood. Especially computer games radiated a great fascination for me even then. From Monkey Island to Lands of Lore to Doom, everything was gambled that you could get your hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with focus on high-performance gaming notebooks.
