XMG is introducing its first slim and light 14-inch budget gaming laptops with the new Core 14 models powered by Intel’s Tiger Lake CPUs. Related brands Schenker and TUXEDO are also offering similar models, but with slightly different specs.

For the new Core 14, XMG is offering a choice between the i5-1135G7 and i7-1165G7 quad-core CPUs with integrated Iris Xe GPUs. Since these are budget gaming laptops, XMG also includes a GTX 1650 Max-P discrete GPU with 4 GB GDDR6. Users can configure the systems with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and up to 2 TB of NVMe PCIe 4.0 / 3.0 X4 SSDs. The 14-inch display features an FHD IPS panel with 120 Hz refresh rate and 300 nits peak luminance.

Other features included:

  • Sound Blaster CInema 6 sound card
  • GbE LAN and WiFI 6 + Bluetooth 5
  • White backlit keyboard and MS Precision touchpad
  • 49 Wh battery
  • 1.45 total weight (1.38 Kg without dGPU)
  • Port selection: 1x Thunderbolt 4, 1x USB-C 3.2 Gen2, 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen1, HDMI 2.0b video out, GbE jack, combo audio jack, SD card reader

Schenker’s Media 14 laptop essentially features the same specs, except for the optional dGPU and Sound Blaster Cinema 6 audio card plus extended warranty, while the TUXEDO Book XP14 is primarily available with pre-installed Linux distributions.

The XMG Core 14 is now available on Bestware.com from 925 Euro and up, whereas the Schenker Media 14 without dGPU starts at 876 Euro (dGPU option costs 126.72 Euro). Our Schenker contacts are reporting that the the TUXEDO models should be available for pre-orders starting next week.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
