Undercover gaming – better than ever before: the new XMG CORE 15 remains true to the key features of the model series and celebrates visual understatement with numerous detail improvements. The laptop now presents its simple elegance in a sleeker, lighter and more solid chassis. The attractive mobile device also makes a significant leap forward in terms of performance, defining the upper mid-range segment along new performance parameters. This is ensured not only by NVIDIA graphics cards up to the GeForce RTX 2060 refresh, but for the first time also by an AMD Ryzen processor of the latest mobile generation.
The optimized cooling system receives a significant upgrade. Despite the overall compacter dimensions, the XMG CORE 15 uses larger fans to cool the faster components not only more efficiently but also quieter. This ensures good temperatures and reliably high FPS in the demanding everyday gaming environment, whenever it matters. With up to 64 GB DDR4 RAM and two M.2 slots for fast, high-performance SSDs connected via PCI Express, the carefully configured gaming laptop is ideally equipped for current and upcoming challenges, and can hold even extensive game collections and large, personal multimedia libraries.
The input devices provide all functional features that really count in the gaming sector. The keyboard precisely converts every keystroke and supports the player with an precise pressure point and clear trigger feedback. These features also make it a reliable everyday companion for all typing tasks. If you don’t want to do without a moderate touch of RGB charm despite the emphasized simplicity of the elegant compact chassis, the keyboard offers an optional, multicolour controllable backlight. A generous touchpad with Microsoft Precision certification provides a lot of comfort for use off the playfield.
Sleek and robust undercover design
The XMG CORE 15 is all about understatement. Its significantly slimmer chassis is characterised by a streamlined design and a weight of less than 2 kg with an overall height of just under 20 mm. The robust laptop is made predominantly of metal and therefore impresses at the same time with its chassis concept with improved stability.
Thanks to its deliberately understated design and the absence of aggressive gaming design elements, it makes a sovereign impression even in everyday working life. Thanks to the attractive thin-bezel display, the screen-to-body ratio is 89 percent, which also contributes to a modern appearance.
Full speed ahead with mobile AMD Ryzen processors
AMD’s mobile Ryzen 4000 processors have recently attracted a lot of attention for their remarkable performance combined with excellent efficiency. With the Ryzen 7 4800H, the XMG CORE 15 integrates one of the fastest models on AMD’s renewed line-up, despite its positioning in the high-performance midfield: Eight cores, 16 threads and all this at a power consumption of only 45 watts provide even demanding users and gamers with outstanding processing power.
The impressive CPU works with a basic clock of 2.9 GHz and achieves a boost clock of up to 4.2 GHz depending on the load scenario. AMD’s versatile Ryzen 7 4800H provides a superior basis for much more than just everyday applications, even in the most advanced programs optimized for parallel use of multiple CPU cores.
Brilliant, high-contrast IPS displays
Full HD displays, each with a high-quality IPS panel, deliver rich colours including high sRGB colour space coverage, deep blacks and high contrast. Especially in critical, dark game scenes, all details remain clearly visible and the target is never out of sight.
The extended feature set of the bright displays includes a high viewing angle stability. Depending on the model installed, a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz enables particularly lively and smooth playback of moving content.
Impressive Full HD gaming – now also with Raytracing
In the top configuration, the XMG CORE 15 uses a GeForce RTX graphics chip from NVIDIA for the first time. In the revised refresh version, the RTX 2060 is not only able to supply the Full HD display of the laptop in demanding games with permanently high frames per second. It also gives the upper mid-range model series the ability to display thrilling real-time ray tracing effects.
NVIDIA’s new, AI-based DLSS 2.0 further enhances frame rates in a wide range of games at maximum quality settings. In the entry level configuration, NVIDIA’s Geforce GTX 1650 Ti is used, a high-performance graphics chip with an excellent price/performance ratio, which is particularly suitable for the fast display of current e-sports titles such as CS:GO, Valorant, or League of Legends with a high level of detail.
Wide variety of external connections
If you want to connect your laptop to one or more external monitors at home, the XMG CORE 15 offers three connection options. There is a choice of two 5K and HDR-compatible Mini DisplayPorts or an HDCP-compatible HDMI slot. The two Mini DisplayPorts support NVIDIA G-SYNC and also work with the ever-growing number of G-SYNC compatible monitors.
The rest of the interface offering is also impressive with four USB ports including Type C, an SD card reader and separate connectors for headset and microphone. Connection to the network is either via a Gigabit Ethernet port or wirelessly via fast, low-latency Wi-Fi 6.
