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.

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.


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.

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.
