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.

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.

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.
