The 2022 FUSION 15 laptop from XMG features the Intel Core i7-11800H processor with up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and 2x NVMe SSDs. There are RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 GPU options, a Thunderbolt 4 connector and the battery capacity has been upgraded, as well.

The XMG FUSION 15, which is considered to be the company's most successful model, is finally getting a refresh after more than 2 years from its initial introduction. The M22 version is slightly larger than the original 2020 model at 35.6 x 23.4 x 21.7 cm, but the weight is almost unchanged at 1.94 kg.

This year’s lineup features the Core i7-11800H processor that can be coupled with up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM an a maximum of two M.2 SSDs (only one connected via PCIe 4.0). The graphics cards available are the GeForce RTX 3070 and 3060, with a TGP of 125 and 120 watts respectively. In benchmark mode, which can be activated via the Control Center, the RTX 3070 can be boosted with an additional 20 W, and the RTX 3060 with 10 W.

The cooling system of the FUSION 15 has also been further improved. For example, larger fans are now used which are characterised by quieter operation and a lower frequency acoustic profile. At the forefront of the strengths of the laptop is the balanced, medium performance profile in silent fan mode: thanks to the flat fan curve, the FUSION 15 delivers just 10 percent less performance than in the maximum profile, yet remains very quiet under gaming load with 42 instead of 53 dB(A).

Display-wise, there is a 15.6-inch 165 Hz IPS panel with WQHD resolution and 95 percent sRGB color space coverage. The screen can be folded out flat with an opening angle of up to 180 degrees. Port selection includes 3x USB-A 3.2 connectors, Thunderbolt 4 with integrated USB-C 4.0 and DisplayPort function, HDMI 2.1, a full-size SD card reader, a 2-in-1 audio jack and a 2.5 GbE jack. There is also a Wi-Fi 6 module, an optomechanical RGB keyboard and a 93 Wh battery.

The base configuration of the XMG FUSION 15 for € 1,499 includes Intel's Core i7-11800H, 16 (2x8) GB DDR4-3200, a 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD and a 165 Hz WQHD panel.
