The hardware of the Schenker XMG Core 17 brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the matte 17.3-inch screen (Full HD, IPS, 144 Hz). The laptop also scores points with moderate temperatures, low noise development in everyday use, and space for two SSDs.

The XMG Core 17 is a 17.3-inch mid-range gaming laptop. Schenker uses a soberly designed plastic case here that is colored black throughout. The slim display bezels give the laptop a certain elegance. The device wouldn't stand out in an office environment.

The test device provided to us is powered by a Core i7-10750H processor and a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics core. Alternatively, the laptop is available with a GeForce RTX 2060 refresh GPU. The hardware brings all modern computer games smoothly onto the screen. However, the GTX 1650 Ti is not designed for maximum resolutions and quality settings.

The hardware is supported by 16 GB of memory (dual-channel mode). An upgrade up to 64 GB is possible. The laptop has room for two M.2 2280 SSDs (1x NVMe, 1x NVMe/SATA; RAID 0/1). Should the installed 1 TB NVMe SSD run out of storage space, it could easily be expanded. Positive: The laptop doesn't heat up excessively under load and produces quite little noise - at least in idle usage and under low load.

Overall, the Core 17 has a well-rounded port selection. The laptop comes with three USB Type-A ports (2x USB 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB 2.0) and one USB Type-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 1). In addition, there's an HDMI 2.0 output and two Mini DisplayPorts (version 1.4). The latter support G-Sync.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in our review of the Schenker XMG Core 17 (2020).

What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

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.
