XMG Focus 15 (Clevo NP50HK) gaming laptop review: RTX 3050 Ti at its limits

High TGP, high noise level. Considering its GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, the XMG Focus 15 from Schenker Technologies aims to attract price conscious gamers. We ran the 15-inch laptop through extensive tests.
Florian Glaser, 👁 Florian Glaser (translated by Mark Riege), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

The XMG Focus 15 can be individually configured on the manufacturer's bestware.com homepage. However, in contrast to many other laptops from Schenker Technologies, the configuration options turn out quite meager. There is currently only a single option for the display (Full-HD IPS with 144 Hz), the graphics card (GeForce RTX 3050 Ti), and the processor (Core i7-11800H). You will find more choices for the working memory ranging from 8 to a maximum of 64 GB, and the storage, using either an M.2 SSD and/or a 2.5-inch hard drive. Primarily due to the 2.5-inch slot, the battery capacity is only 49 Wh. To allow for a longer battery life, we would have preferred to see two M.2 slots here. The customer also has a choice for the communication module, the keyboard language, and the operating system.

The price of the XMG Focus 15 starts from 1199 Euros (~$1401). Our tested configuration with 32 GB of dual-channel RAM and a 1-TB SSD ends up costing more than 1500 Euros (~$1753), which is quite a lot for an RTX 3050 Ti device.

Case

The case, which is based on a Barebone from Clevo (NP50HK case), appears inconspicuous in almost every regard. Besides the design, which is kept rather simple, the rest of the aspects are also unspectacular. The 15-inch laptop mostly shows clean workmanship and a good stability, even though in some places, the plastic surfaces can be pressed in with use of some force. However, this never becomes an annoyance in practical operation. The hinges are also solid. Although the base unit also lifts up slightly when opening the lid, the display can still be opened with a single hand.

The highlight of the case is its low weight. 1.9 kg (~4.2 lb) is the lowest value in the test field, which is also shared by the Dell XPS 15. The RTX 3060 laptops bring between 2.3 and 2.5 kg (~5-5.5 lb) to the scale. The Focus 15 also scores with its slim build. The height of only 2.2 cm (~0.9 in) ensures a slim look and together with the moderate weight ensures good mobility.

Equipment

Connections

Those who can make do without Thunderbolt should be satisfied with the connection equipment of the Focus 15. While the left side offers an opening for the Kensington Lock, two USB-A ports (1x 2.0, 1x 3.0), and two audio outputs for a microphone and headset, the right side presents a full-size card reader, one USB-C port (3.2 Gen2), an additional USB-A-Port (3.0), and an RJ45 port with a folding mechanism. Finally the connections for power and the display output (HDMI 2.0, Mini-DisplayPort 1.4) are located in  the back.

Since some of the connections are placed in the back and the USB ports are distributed well, there should be sufficient space for using an external mouse.

SD Card Reader

The built-in card reader supports the SD, SDHC, and SDXC card formats and offers a mediocre performance. During sequential reading and while transferring photos, you can expect around 80 to 90 MB/s. For comparison, the Dell XPS 15 cracks the 200-MB mark using our AV Pro 128 GB V60 reference card. All the other competitors do not offer a card reader.

Communication

Our test unit uses an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 as the communication module. In addition to WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, it also supports Bluetooth 5.1. In our range test (1m distance to the Netgear Nighthawk AX12 reference router), the Focus 15 achieves very good results with 1500 Mbit/s when sending and more than 1300 Mbit/s when receiving data. With these values, it achieves the first and third place in our test field, respectively.

Webcam

As usual, you should not expect too much from the webcam. The image sharpness and color reproduction are rather limited.

Accessories

The box includes a quick start manual, a driver DVD, a USB stick with software, and screws for the 2.5-inch slot. The power supply of the Focus 15 is a pleasantly light and compact 150-Watt model.

Maintenance

In order to access the insides, you have to first remove a total of 15 Philips screws from the bottom of the case. You can then lift off the bottom cover with only little use of force. As typical for Clevo cases, the maintenance options are very good. In addition to the battery, the WLAN module, and the working memory, you can also access the M.2 and the 2.5-inch slot. The cooling system consists of two fans, with several heat pipes running from each of them to the CPU and GPU (soldered in, so they cannot be replaced).

Warranty

The basic warranty lasts for 2 years (6 months quick repair). At an additional cost, up to 3 years of quick repair are also available for the whole warranty period.

Input Devices

Keyboard

We already know the keyboard from other Clevo Barebones. The chicklet model that can be illuminated in several colors and levels offers a dedicated number block and a fairly good typing experience. Buyers should also be pleased with the comfortable key size. In addition to the WASD keys, the arrow keys also have a decent size. The typing noise is neither very quiet nor particularly loud, settling in the middle of the field. A positive point is the ample size of the palm rest due to the high positioning of the keyboard.

Touchpad

The touchpad is also impressive. About 12 x 7.3 cm (~4.7 x 2.9 in) are quite a lot for a 15-inch laptop. Following the current trend, this is a ClickPad without dedicated keys. With the smooth surface and good accuracy, mouse movements succeed very smoothly. However, the manufacturer should improve on the stability. Particularly the left and right edge of the pad can be pressed down more than usual. The same problem is also found in the 17-inch model, which will receive a review evaluation shortly.

Display

The display consists of a classic IPS panel with a 1920x1080 pixel resolution and refresh rate of 144 Hz.

* ... smaller is better

On the positive side, we have especially the good brightness. Almost 376 cd/m² at maximum brightness represent the best value in our test field, closely followed by the OLED panel of the Dell XPS 15 with 367 cd/m². This means that you can also use the 15-inch laptop easily outdoors.

Due to the black value being less than optimal (0.41 cd/m²) the contrast value only places in the middle of the field. But about 1000:1 should be sufficient for most buyers. On the other hand, the good color reproduction deserves some positive points. The 15-inch screen offers a balanced image already in the state of delivery.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.6 ms rise

The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.6 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21047 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Despite our test unit bringing an octa-core CPU, 32 GB of RAM, and a 1-TB SSD, the XMG Focus 15 "only" settles in the mid-range. The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is meant more for the occasional gamer who doesn't need to play every new game at maximum details and who doesn't pose particularly high demands on getting a future-proof device.

Processor

In the mobile gaming area, Intel's Core i7-11800H is currently one of the most successful processors. The 10-nm model contains 24 MB L3 cache and is able to operate on 16 threads simultaneously via Hyper Threading. Under load, the clock speed is between 2.3 and a maximum of 4.6 GHz.

In our Cinebench loop, the Focus 15 only turns out average. Even though the CPU performance remains fairly constant over a longer time period and ranges above that of the Dell XPS 15, the Core i7-11800H still achieves better benchmark results in other laptops (see the Asus TUF F15, for example). The Focus 15 also has a hard time in the comparison with laptops that are based on the Ryzen 7 5800H. However, since most 3D applications are limited by the GPU, gamers don't have to worry about any limitations when playing games.

DPC Latencies

Even though the XMG Focus 15 shows relatively low latencies compared to the competitors, according to the LatencyMon tool, it is only suited to a limited extent for real-time audio and video processing. At least, that is the case in the state of delivery without any manual tuning.

Graphics Card

In order to get a maximum graphics performance from the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, the manufacturer configured the Focus 15 with a TGP of 75 watts (incl. Dynamic Boost). With that, the 15-inch laptop moves significantly ahead of the Dell XPS 15, whose RTX 3050 Ti only gets 45 watts, which is only little more than half. This situation is also reflected in the benchmark runs, although the Focus 15 doesn't deliver twice the performance.

The biggest problem of the RTX 3050 Ti is the meager video storage. 4 GB are not up-to-date anymore for a mid-range GPU. It should be at least 6 GB VRAM in 2012. Current games such as "Deathloop" already demand more than 4 GB in Full-HD resolution, even at minimal settings. This means that Nvidia is too frugal here, unnecessarily limiting the future usefulness. You also shouldn't expect a high raytracing performance from the RTX 3050 Ti. In the Port Royal test of the 3DMark benchmark, for example, the result is miserable compared to the RTX 3060, which often runs in similarly priced laptops.

Gaming Performance

Despite its meager storage, the RTX 3050 Ti is fast enough to run most games smoothly in the native Full-HD resolution at high to maximum detail settings. Only in badly programmed and/or extremely demanding games such as "Crysis Remastered" does the DirectX-12 chip begin to stumble. While the Focus 15 is still ahead of the Dell XPS 15 here, it finishes significantly behind laptops that use the RTX 3060, which runs around 40% faster.

We evaluate how the graphics card behaves under longer 3D load, by running the role play "The Witcher 3" for about 60 minutes (FHD/Ultra). The result is that just like the CPU performance, that of the GPU also remains fairly constant.
