XMG NEO 17 – THE ANSWER

 

 

Designed for maximum performance, the XMG NEO 17 is an uncompromisingly consistent answer to the core demands of the mobile gaming and esports community. NVIDIA graphics cards up to the flagship GeForce RTX 3080 unleash an unprecedented level of 3D performance; especially considering that all configurable GPUs are integrated in their full Max-P specification. To match, the impressive gaming laptop uses the fastest mobile processors currently available, up to AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900HX. Its cleverly designed chassis, developed for extraordinary durability, also integrates a cooling system equipped with plenty of overhead. A uniquely precise keyboard with optomechanical silent switches allows for exact and fast inputs.

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 17 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, and fully exploits its 150 Watt TDP performance envelope. No other model delivers higher gaming or ray tracing performance!

Mobile performance champions: AMD Ryzen processors

AMD’s new Ryzen 5000H processors currently spearhead mobile CPU performance. The XMG NEO 17 offers these processing champions up to and including the range topping Ryzen 9 5900HX. With its eight fast Cezanne cores, the CPU processes up to 16 threads simultaneously, delivering unprecedented single and multi-core performance at 3.3 GHz (base clock) and up to 4.6 GHz (boost clock) respectively. Need the fastest mobile processors for simultaneous high-end gaming and streaming, or groundbreaking application performance? Then the XMG NEO 17 is the perfect choice.

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 17 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-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.

Rapid 240 Hz IPS display

The ultra fast 240 Hz Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display, with its high refresh rate, lays the foundation for blur-free playback and particularly fast response times. These features make it easier for you to aim in action packed first-person shooters, for example, enabling you to react faster and more precisely to what’s happening in the game. Just like the 165Hz WQHD option, the 240 Hz FHD panel also utilizes IPS technology, similarly providing intensive colour reproduction, very good black levels, excellent contrast and wide viewing angles.

Cleverly designed & robust chassis

The XMG NEO 17 features a durable chassis with a torsion-resistant display lid made of high quality brushed aluminium, weighing in at just 2.5 kg – particularly light weight considering its size and performance class. Clear lines unmistakably characterise the design language of robust elegance. The Grip-Touch surface of the palm rest offers maximum control in hectic situations. In contrast to plastic or metal surfaces, the Grip-Tech material is characterised by a noticeably better slip resistance – providing a stable and comfortable platform.

Superior cooling performance

The cooling system of the XMG NEO 17 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.

” The high TDP model in Schenker’s XMG Neo 17 performed faster than an RTX 2080 (Super) and even managed to outperform our RTX 3080 laptops.
