Next-Level Gaming Performance: Intel Tiger Lake Processor

With the brand new 11th Core generation, Intel has created truly powerful all-rounders in terms of gaming and content creation performance. Featuring eight fast Tiger Lake cores, 16 threads and a modern 10 nm manufacturing process, the Core i7-11800H in the XMG NEO 15 is one of the fastest mobile CPUs available. The new Tiger Lake architecture also brings several innovations to the table, with features such as the connection of graphics cards and SSDs via PCI Express 4.0 and Thunderbolt 4 support now available in the high-end gaming laptop sector.

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.

Fast IPS display with 144 hz

A high-quality IPS panel, a high refresh rate of 144 Hz and Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) provide exactly the right features for a thrilling gaming experience. In addition to a smooth display, the panel also impresses with its basic properties: IPS technology ensures vivid and rich colours, whilst a better overview in dark gaming scenes can be experienced thanks to ideal black levels, high contrast values and impeccable viewing angle stability.

High-resolution WQHD display with 165 Hz

Combining 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 convinces with a low response time, an incredibly smooth playback and maximum immersion. But the high-resolution model also knows how to excel in the field of professional image editing with an sRGB colour space coverage of 95 percent and taking full advantage of the traditional strengths of IPS technology: brilliant colours, first-class black levels and excellent contrast.

Lightweight gamer in Undercover design

Gaming on-the-go: Thanks to a weight of just 2.1 kg, you can always carry your XMG CORE 15 around comfortably. In terms of design, the slim chassis 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.

High-end interface: Thunderbolt 4

Thunderbolt 4 isn’t just for connecting the fastest external SSDs to your XMG NEO 15. With two of its G-SYNC-capable DisplayPort streams directly connected to the NVDIA graphics card, you can also easily expand your setup with additional monitors. Or you can opt for a powerful Thunderbolt docking station to connect your keyboard, mouse, network, external storage devices and multi-monitor system to your laptop with a single cable via the high-performance port – for easy and convenient switching between mobile use and a well-equipped home setup with all your peripherals.

Generous Memory configuration

The XMG CORE 15 offers you flexible storage options. Two M.2 SSD, one with lightning fast PCI Express 4.0 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.
