XMG ULTRA 17

BASICALLY ROCKET SCIENCE

Fierce gaming performance – no ifs or buts; the XMG ULTRA 17 combines the uncompromising performance of Intel’s 11th generation desktop processors with NVIDIA graphics cards designed specifically for this class of laptop up to the GeForce RTX 3080. These cards, designed in the special discrete MXM format, work faster than anything else used in the mobile sector. Need the blistering extreme performance of a high-end desktop PC without being desk-bound? Then the portable XMG ULTRA 17 is the tailor-made solution for your needs. Up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory, four M.2 slots for fast PCI Express SSDs and an outstanding range of connections make for an outstanding set of features to compliment the core components.

Extreme performance focus:

Intel desktop processors

With Intel’s desktop processors from the 11th Core generation (Rocket Lake), the XMG ULTRA 17 keeps all mobile CPUs at bay. The new top model Core i9-11900K offers 8 cores, 16 threads and works with the full TDP of 125 watts. As such, the processor delivers unbridled performance at high-end desktop PC level. This is made possible by a mainboard with a well-equipped Intel Z590 Express chipset – the current flagship for Socket 1200 systems. Whether simultaneously gaming and streaming, or working with massive multitasking workloads, the XMG ULTRA 17 offers nothing less than the maximum of what is possible.

THUNDERBOLT 4

With two fast Thunderbolt 4 ports, the XMG ULTRA 17 is in no way inferior to even current top-level ATX mainboards in terms of connectivity. The interface, with a data throughput of up to 40 Gbit/s, allows the connection of the most powerful external drives or modern docking stations. At the same time, the connection functions as an additional DisplayPort output and is already compatible with the latest external monitors with groundbreaking 8K resolution.

300 Hz fast
IPS display with G-SYNC

With a refresh rate of 300 Hz, the Full HD IPS panel (1920 x 1080 pixels) is one of the fastest gaming displays on the market. G-SYNC ensures exact synchronisation of the graphics card’s image output with the display – for a smooth gaming experience without tearing and with ultra-fast response times. The high refresh rate makes it possible to react significantly faster and with professional precision to the gaming action. In addition, the high-quality IPS panel impresses with bright, intense colours, first-class black levels and contrasts, high viewing angle stability and 100% coverage of the sRGB colour space.

Optimal connectivity

The XMG ULTRA 17 comes with an impressive range of connectivity options: USB-C 3.2 Gen2, three USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports, a full-format SD card reader connected via UHS-III and a microphone input and headphone output leave nothing to be desired. The latter is fully headset-compatible, so no additional splitter is needed. In addition, there is a cutting-edge 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port from Killer and fast Wi-Fi 6. If an optional Killer WLAN module is installed, you can activate Killer Doubleshot Pro to prioritise network traffic and run your games exclusively via the Ethernet port, while all other applications communicate via WLAN.

Monstrous memory expansion

Up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM

“There’s no substitute for RAM – except more RAM!” Following this mantra, the XMG ULTRA 17 is equipped with four instead of just the more common two SO-DIMM slots, holding up to 128 GB of DDR4 RAM with a high clock frequency of up to 3200 MHz. When it comes to demanding, high-resolution video editing projects, setting up a RAM disk or multitasking with a large number of programs open at the same time, you shouldn’t have to settle with “almost enough RAM” – with the XMG ULTRA 17, you don’t have to!

The XMG ULTRA 17 has four M.2 slots for blazing-fast PCI Express SSDs and holds up to 32 TB of local high-performance storage. In combination with Intel’s latest Rocket Lake CPUs, one of the interfaces already communicates via PCI Express 4.0, thus exploiting the full potential of the world’s fastest storage drives. The remaining M.2 slots are connected via PCI-E.

Immersive surround sound

Creative Super X-Fi UltraDSP

Creative’s Super X-Fi UltraDSP chip brings extraordinary surround sound to any headset. A customisable, AI-based room sound simulation tailors the sound reproduction exactly to you. For an optimal result, you can measure the shape of your head and ears in advance using a smartphone app, and the software will then take care of the fine-tuning. In terms of technical key data, the sound chip features crystal-clear 24 bit sound reproduction and a DAC with a powerful, integrated headphone amplifier.

Performance - on the Rocks

Tailor-made cooling system

The key to lasting high performance lies in a cooling system that is specially tailored to the components. The XMG ULTRA 17 meets this requirement with flying colours and is effortlessly able to keep the temperatures of both the genuine desktop CPU and the performance-enhanced graphics chip in check. A smart self-cleaning function directs penetrating dust directly out of the case by means of an anti-dust tunnel. In addition, the fans have a reverse function that ensures that no dirt particles get stuck between the fins of the heat sinks – minimum maintenance, maximum performance!
