We just completed our test on the new Schenker XMG Core 15. In the budget gaming laptop, we are particularly convinced by the new Zen-2 processor, while the RTX 2060 shows some slight weakness. But it is still surprising what powerful hardware can be found in a laptop below 1500 Euros (~$1745) at this point.

Gaming laptops are slowly becoming more affordable, and this is facilitated to some degree by AMD with its very powerful and still relatively affordable processors. It is quite amazing what powerful hardware can be found in an entry-level gaming laptop at a relatively good price at this point.

Less than a year ago, the Schenker XMG Core 15 was still equipped with a Core i5 and a Geforce GTX 1660 Ti, and now the manufacturer upgraded it to a Ryzen 7-4800H and an RTX 2060. At least the first upgrade was completely worthwhile, and the pure CPU performance is very convincing. But the performance increase due to the new RTX card, on the other hand, turned out less significant than expected.

Fortunately, the 15-inch XMG hardly shows any serious weaknesses despite its low price, even if by far not everything is perfect. But for this price range, there is hardly any real catch, so gamers on a tight budget can safely make the choice. 

The extreme throttling of the graphics performance away from the outlet is a real bummer, so despite its compact case and relatively low weight, the Schenker is not really a particularly mobile gaming laptop. In addition, you have to make do without Thunderbolt 3, and the bottom of the thin case becomes quite warm in 3D operation. All the rest of the details are described in our extensive review of the Schenker XMG Core 15.

A C64 marked my entry into the world of PCs. I spent my student internship in the repair department of a computer shop and at the end of the day I was allowed to assemble my own 486 PC from “workshop remnants”. As a result of this, I later studied computer science at the Humboldt University in Berlin, with psychology also being added to my studies. After my first job as a research assistant at the university, I went to London for a year and worked for Sega in computer game translation quality assurance. This included working on games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Company of Heroes. I have been writing for Notebookcheck since 2017.

Having worked as a programmer for 20 years (medical devices, AI, data management systems), I've been following the computer scene for many years and especially enjoy finding out about new technology advances. Originally from Germany but living in the US, I've been working as a translator more recently, with Notebookcheck allowing me to combine my interest in new devices and translation. Other interests include Buddhism, spending time in Tibetan monasteries, and translating ancient Tibetan texts.
