The XMG CORE 17 combines the discreet elegance of its undercover gaming design with latest-generation hardware to stamp its mark in the upper midrange performance class. In addition to a current, ray tracing capable NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, the laptop skilfully puts its competitors in their place with fast eight-core processors. The XMG CORE 17 presents these qualities in the form of subtle restraint: whereas other gaming laptops take a playful approach with many colourful lighting elements, it counters as a stylish and serious alternative.

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 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.

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 17 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.
