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 applications.
POWERFUL RAY TRACING: NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3060
The update to NVIDIA’s latest GeForce graphics cards gives the XMG CORE 17 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 17 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 display, 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 set accents in the field of professional image editing with an sRGB colour space coverage of 95 percent and fully plays out the traditional strengths of IPS technology: with brilliant colours, first-class black levels and an excellent contrast.
ROBUST CHASSIS IN UNDERCOVER DESIGN
High-quality workmanship, clean lines and a sleek, modern exterior are among the fundamental qualities of the XMG CORE 17. The notebook cleverly combines its visual understatement with solid and resistant build quality, so that frequent mobile use won’t harm it, even in the long run. The webcam is positioned on the display’s upper border and thus records from an advantageous angle.
GENEROUS MEMORY CONFIGURATION
The XMG CORE 17 offers you flexible storage 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.
