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.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.
I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
