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.
