XMG CORE 15 - UNDERCOVER GAMING

Following the motto "Undercover Gaming", the understated design of the high-performance XMG CORE 15 offers an elegant alternative to the aggressive appearance of many gaming laptops with their RGB lighting elements. As a new benchmark in the upper mid-range segment, it also offers a particularly well-balanced and powerful feature set. Intel's ninth-generation Core i7 processors and NVIDIA graphics cards up to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti form an excellent basis for Full HD gaming with very high quality settings.

FAST GEFORCE GTX GPUS

Current graphics cards up to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti form an impressive basis for the rendering of demanding Full HD gaming applications. NVIDIA’s upper mid-range graphics cards are based on the modern, efficient Turing architecture and offer an impressive price/performance ratio. Compared to its own predecessor generation, the computing power of the new mid-range flagship is up to 50 percent higher. Thus, the graphics card is well prepared even for upcoming game titles.

FIRST-CLASS IMAGE QUALITY THANKS TO IPS PANEL

To ensure full HD gaming with the best possible display quality, the XMG CORE 15 relies on displays with a high-quality IPS panel. These guarantee bright, intense colors and operate at a fast refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. Other advantages of the technology include high viewing angle stability, high-contrast reproduction and outstanding black levels, from which the wide-ranging and easily recognisable gradation of dark screen contents benefits in particular.

LIGHTWEIGHT WITH COMPACT ELEGANCE

The XMG CORE 15’s fundamental virtues include clear lines and an elegant and simple exterior. This deliberate understatement combines the slim unit with high-quality, stable workmanship to create a homogeneous overall package. The absence of aggressive design elements, a rugged appearance of the case and playful, colourful lighting accents give the laptop a modern and serious appearance. A slim display frame contributes to the compact dimensions. Despite its respectable performance, the device also cuts a fine figure in mobile use due to its low weight of only 2 kg.

MOBILE HIGH-PERFORMANCE PROCESSOR

Intel’s Core i7-9750H from the ninth core generation is characterized by a renewed increase in clock rates with consistently high efficiency. In contrast to the Core i5 CPU usually used in mid-range devices, the Core i7 has higher power reserves. The six-core processor works with a base clock of 2.6 GHz and reaches up to 4.5 GHz via Turbo Boost. Including the CPU cache expanded to 12 MB, this results in a high-performance solution for games and many other computationally intensive applications.

FLEXIBILITY THANKS TO A WIDE RANGE OF CONNECTIONS

A large number of external interfaces gives the laptop a high degree of versatility in the daily application environment: Two G-SYNC-capable Mini DisplayPorts and an HDMI output with HDCP support are available for image output to additional external monitors. Four USB ports including a modern type C port, an Ethernet port for wired network connections and an integrated multi-card reader result in a universal all-round carefree package, which also includes two separate audio jacks for headphones and microphone.
