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.
