TOP PERFORMANCE: AMD RYZEN 7 4800H

AMD’s mobile Ryzen processors are synonymous with first-class performance and high efficiency. The Ryzen 7 4800H, based on AMD’s Renoir architecture, is one of the top models; offering much more than mid-range performance thanks to its 8 CPU cores and 16 threads. A base and boost clock of 2.9 GHz and up to 4.2 GHz help the processor to not only deliver outstanding gaming performance, but also plenty of computing power in demanding multimedia and everyday applications.

POWERFUL RAY TRACING: NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3060

The update to NVIDIA’s latest GeForce graphics cards gives the XMG CORE 15 a considerable performance increase. Its RTX 3060 in unrestricted Max-P full configuration effortlessly powers the display with high FPS values. RTX technology helps you turn up the graphics details even further; because with DLSS 2.0 and ray tracing, the XMG CORE 15 is well prepared to bring to life current and upcoming AAA game titles at high quality graphics settings.

RAPID IPS DISPLAY WITH 240 Hz

Due to its very high refresh rate of 240 Hz, the high quality IPS Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display is characterized by particularly low response times and extremely smooth playback. So when it comes to the fastest possible reactions to gaming action, the 240 Hz technology offers you the optimal basis – for precise aiming at a professional e-sports level. Excellent black levels and contrasts, bright intense colours, and wide viewing angles round out the display’s features.

HIGH-RESOLUTION WQHD DISPLAY WITH 165 Hz

Combining a WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and a fast refresh rate of 165 Hz, the IPS display hits the sweet spot when it comes to gaming. While the increased pixel density ensures an even sharper and more detailed image, the high-end display simultaneously delivers impressive low response times, incredibly smooth playback and maximum immersion. The high-resolution panel also satisfies the needs of professional image editors, with an sRGB colour space coverage of 95 percent and by fully implementing the traditional strengths of IPS panel technology: with brilliant colours, first-class black levels and excellent contrast.

LIGHTWEIGHT GAMER IN UNDERCOVER DESIGN

Gaming on-the-go: Thanks to a weight of just 1.99 kg, you can always carry your XMG CORE 15 around comfortably. In terms of design, the slim case is all about understatement. Casually modern and discreetly elegant, the laptop design has a serious touch that even makes a good impression in the office. Aluminium is predominantly used on the case’s exterior, ensuring an extremely solid build. The Windows Hello compatible webcam has been moved to the upper edge of the display in the latest CORE generation and thus records from a more advantageous angle.

GENEROUS MEMORY CONFIGURATION

The XMG CORE 15 offers you flexible memory configuration options. Two M.2 SSD slots with fast PCI Express connection as well as two SO-DIMM slots for up to 64 GB DDR4-3200 RAM ensure maximum futureproofing. The inside of the laptop is freely accessible and does not put any unnecessary obstacles in your way, for example if you wish to replacing memory components in the future or simply in maintaining the laptop.

” The XMG Core 15 (2021) retains the strong genes of a portable gaming and productivity workhouse.
