XMG CORE 16

UNDERCOVER GAMING

The XMG CORE 16 opens a new chapter in Undercover Gaming with high-end features, premium build quality, a stylish-elegant design, and the very top of midrange performance in a smart 16-inch form factor.

Designed on the basis of the XMG NEO 16, this gaming laptop takes many features of the top model and bundles them into an outstanding complete package, including the optional mechanical keyboard with CHERRY MX Ultra Low Profile switches. A highly efficient, high-performance eight-core processor from the AMD Phoenix series, graphics cards up to the DLSS3-capable NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070, a maximum of 96 GB RAM, a huge battery and a superior cooling system including liquid metal give the CORE 16 the finishing touch.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40
Innovative graphics features

NVIDIA’s powerful line-up of upper mid-range laptop graphics cards provides you with great performance for ultra-smooth gaming thanks to innovative features. In the XMG CORE 16, you have the choice between a high-performance GeForce RTX 4070 or a fast RTX 4060, both with the maximum power limits. Dedicated ray tracing and tensor cores as part of the innovative GPU design enable stunning graphics effects and unlock AI-powered acceleration features in your content creation software.

Cherry Feature
DLSS 3
DLSS is a revolutionary breakthrough in AI-powered graphics that massively increases performance. DLSS 3 uses the new fourth-generation Tensor compute units and Optical Flow Accelerator on GeForce RTX 40 series laptop GPUs to create additional high-quality frames using AI.

Ray Tracing
The Ada architecture unleashes the full glory of ray tracing, which simulates how light behaves in the real world. With the power of RTX 40 Series Laptops and third-gen RT Cores, you can experience incredibly detailed virtual worlds like never before.
Cherry Feature
Dynamic Boost
AI-powered Dynamic Boost now automatically optimises GPU, GPU memory and CPU power usage for better performance. The AI networks in Dynamic Boost manage performance per frame, so your laptop is constantly optimising power usage as you develop.
AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS
High performance & best efficiency

AMD’s Ryzen 7 7840HS boasts top-notch performance with optimised energy efficiency thanks to its modern Zen 4 architecture. With 8 cores and 16 threads, this processor gives you everything you need for gaming at continuously high FPS, streaming or working in demanding software. Compared to the Zen 3-based predecessor generation, this CPU offers a significant increase in both single- and multi-core performance.

High-end compound cooling system
Liquid metal for CPU and GPU

In the XMG CORE 16, highly efficient laptop components meet a generous cooling system that ensures excellent temperatures in every situation. Four heat pipes, separate heat sinks on all four air outlets and large fans with a low-frequency acoustic characteristic offer more than enough reserves to get the maximum performance out of the processor and graphics card. The additional use of liquid metal completes the high-performance cooling.

RGB keyboard with CHERRY MX switches
Precision meets perfection

With its optional high-end keyboard based on CHERRY’s groundbreaking Ultra Low Profile Tactile switches, the XMG CORE 16 picks up on one of the key features of the XMG NEO series. The flattest, fully mechanical switches for laptops impress with a uniquely precise feedback, proven CHERRY durability and freely programmable RGB per-key backlight – N-key rollover, anti-ghosting and features such as a dedicated numeric keypad and large arrow keys included. For those who prefer particularly quiet typing, the CORE 16 is also available with a keyboard with silent membrane switches.

High-resolution IPS display
Razor sharp on 16 inch

The 16-inch non-glare display offers an enhanced WQXGA resolution (2,560 x 1,600 pixels) for a razor-sharp image reproduction. Thanks to a brightness of 350 nits, everything can be seen perfectly even in bright environments. With the IPS technology used, you can expect not only vibrant colours, a high contrast and excellent black levels, but also a wide viewing angle stability.

XMG CORE 16 L23 LP Feature 05.1 Display Gaming
Extremely smooth
240 Hz gaming

A very fast refresh rate of 240 Hz is ideal for smooth gaming with high FPS – NVIDIA graphics cards with DLSS 3 flex their muscles in this category. The display is connected via a MUX switch: this allows you to permanently link the display device to the dGPU for maximum performance.

XMG CORE 16 L23 LP Feature 05.1 Display Content Creation
Colour accurate display
Smart 16:10 format

The display’s complementary features make it the right choice for professional image or video editing. For example, the factory colour-calibrated panel covers 95 per cent of the sRGB colour space to meet creatives’ requirements for high colour accuracy, and also uses the 16:10 format with more vertical screen area – ideal for enhanced ease of use in photo and video editing applications.

Holds two blazing-fast SSDs and
96 GB DDR5-5600 RAM

As one of the first gaming laptops ever, the XMG CORE 16 can hold up to 96 GB of plugged-in, high-performance DDR5 RAM with a maximum clock frequency of 5600 MHz. But it’s not just the configuration options for the memory that leave you all options open: Two M.2 slots outfitted with thermal pads for fast SSDs connected via PCI Express 4.0 provide more than enough storage space if needed.
