Schenker upgrades Key 15 and Key 17 laptops with more powerful hardware combinations
Schenker has started selling two new mobile workstations, both with high-end Intel and NVIDIA components. Specifically, Schenker has upgraded the Key 15 and Key 17, which now rely on Alder Lake-H processors and GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs. Additionally, Schenker sells both machines with two display options, plus various memory options.
On the one hand, the Key 15 and Key 17 can be configured with the Core i7-12700H or the Core i9-12900H. For reference, both processors have a 45 W TDP, 20 threads, 6 P cores and 8 E cores built on a 10 nm process. Currently, the Core i9-12900H sits second in Intel's Alder Lake-H product stack, with only the Core i9-12900HK above it. Meanwhile, Intel also offers the Core i7-12800H, a mildly overclocked Core i7-12700H.
On the other hand, while Schenker's new workstations start with an RTX 3070 Ti, the RTX 3080 Ti is an option but for over a €700 surcharge. According to our database, the RTX 3070 Ti achieves 84% of the performance of the RTX 3080 Ti in benchmarks and when gaming. Separately, Schenker offers the following display options for both machines:
- Key 15
- IPS|2,560 × 1,440 pixels|165 Hz|99% sRGB/DCI-P3 colour space coverage
- OLED|3,840 × 2,160 pixels|60 Hz|100% sRGB colour space coverage|Colour calibrated
- Key 17
- IPS|2,560×1,440 pixels|165 Hz|NVIDIA G-SYNC|99% sRGB colour space coverage
- IPS|3,840×2,160 pixels|60 Hz|100% Adobe RGB colour space coverage|Colour calibrated
Moreover, Schenker promises full compatibility with all AR and VR headsets, along with HDMI 2.1, Mini DisplayPort 1.4 and Thunderbolt 4 connectivity. As the company's marketing images show, the Key 15 and Key 17 feature RGB backlit keys as well. At launch, the Key 15 starts at €2,528.99, while the Key 17 retails for €2,599.
