Max-P full power: RTX 3000 unleashed

The new mobile RTX 3000 graphics cards for laptops take a giant leap forward in terms of gaming performance. To ensure that you can take full advantage of the power of these new GPUs, we have equipped the XMG NEO 15 with graphics chips exclusively in the mercilessly performance-focused Max-P specification, driving them effortlessly with the maximum specified TGP. The top configuration integrates the GeForce RTX 3080 with 16 GB GDDR6 memory – currently the fastest laptop GPU in the world. No other mobile model delivers higher gaming or ray tracing performance!

High-resolution WQHD IPS display with 165 Hz

Featuring a refresh rate of 165 Hz, the high-end IPS display with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) provides the optimum combination of high resolution, smooth gaming and fast response times. Due to the high pixel density, the display ensures a razor-sharp image. With an sRGB colour gamut of 95 percent, the panel is also ideal for image and video editing – offering excellent true-colour reproduction. IPS technology ensures these brilliant colours, superb black levels and excellent contrast, in addition to wide viewing angles.

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 sector.

Tailor-made gaming keyboard

A clear keystroke, unrestricted N-key rollover and anti-ghosting – these are the features that make up a superb gaming keyboard; the XMG NEO 15 has them all, and more! Of course, the keyboard also comes with freely programmable per-key RGB backlighting as standard. In addition, innovative switches have been used to offer unmatched precision and maximum in-game control.

Maximum precision: Optomechanical switches

Optomechanical silent switches with precise, tactile feedback make the keyboard the ideal tool for gamers and frequent typists. Designed to a high durability standard, they are also built to last! The key travel is two millimetres, the actuation point is reached after one millimetre with an actuation force of 60 grams. These features guarantee a terrific degree of accuracy even in hectic gaming.

High-end interface: Thunderbolt 4

Thunderbolt 4 isn’t just for connecting the fastest external SSDs to your XMG NEO 15. With two DisplayPort streams, 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.

Long-lasting battery & lightweight

A generous 93 watt hour battery helps the XMG NEO 15 achieve excellent runtimes and, given a weight of just 2.2 kg, interprets its high-performance approach into a light and portable solution. An attractive, high-quality surface finish in a matt sandblast look adds an exclusive touch. However, the chassis, which is predominantly made of aluminium, is also fully convincing in terms of stability and torsional rigidity.

Superior cooling performance

The cooling system of the XMG NEO 15 continues to be revised and optimized, not only to meet the requirements of the currently fastest mobile processors and graphics cards, but to provide a thermal overhead and thus performance reserve. This is the only way to ensure that the maximum possible gaming performance is permanently available to you. The numerous improvements include cooling fans that have grown to 11 mm in height, providing a double benefit of hither air throughput and quieter operation. A new cooler design, compromising of a high number of powerful heat pipes in a composite layout, has been specially created with these new CPU and GPU component pairings in mind.
