EVERYTHING ULTRA

Legends never die: As an icon of uncompromising desktop replacement gaming, the new XMG ULTRA 17 rises with the most brute performance a laptop could ever put into the hands of the most demanding gamers. The combination of Intel desktop processors with up to ten cores for the first time and NVIDIA’s ray-tracing-capable GeForce graphics cards up to the RTX 2080 SUPER manifests a unique performance revelation, which effortlessly handles the latest AAA and VR game titles in the highest possible resolution and at maximum detail level. But also in terms of connection and memory equipment, the XMG ULTRA 17, as the new definition of limitless, portable top performance, puts even well-equipped desktop PCs from the high-end segment in their place.

DESKTOP CPU POWER WITH UP TO TEN CORES

The XMG ULTRA series has always been a synonym for the raw, unbridled extreme performance of desktop processors in a portable laptop. However, the new version of the XMG ULTRA 17 revolutionises the approach fundamentally and, for the first time, makes use of up to ten hyperthreading-capable cores in the form of Intel’s Core i9-10900K in the maximum configuration.

The multitasking genius faces the desire for simultaneous gaming, streaming and running other programs with sovereign composure. With a 3.7 GHz base clock, a turbo boost of up to 5.3 GHz and 20 MB L3 cache, the mercilessly performing Core i9-10900K is ready to assert itself in even the most demanding application scenarios.

HIGH-END GRAPHICS WITH SUPER POWERS

Everything ultra? NVIDIA’s redesigned GeForce RTX graphics cards make this wish come true with no ifs or buts. The concept of the XMG ULTRA 17 is designed to get the most out of the potential of the new GPUs: In the top version, a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER in MXM plug-in card format, the high-end flagship of the current graphics card line-up does its job with an unlimited TGP of 200 watts!
In 4K gaming with the highest possible level of detail and the latest VR game titles such as Half-Life-Alyx, the high-performance chip guarantees the smoothest, most immersive and spectacular graphics ever. With the RTX 2070 SUPER and the RTX 2070 Refresh, there are two additional, high-performance cards available, which can already deliver exceptional mobile performance.

FANTASTIC HIGH-END DISPLAYS FOR GAMING AND CONTENT CREATION

The XMG ULTRA 17 comes with a first-class Full HD display with IPS panel and NVIDIA G-SYNC support designed for gamers. Thanks to an lightning fast refresh rate of 240 Hz, it ensures an incredibly smooth display of all game content. The laptop’s powerful hardware delivers the necessary performance to ensure consistently high FPS rates with impressive reliability. Due to the 100% coverage of the sRGB colour space, the display is also suitable for colour-accurate work in the photo or video sector.
Those who require a higher resolution can opt for the UHD alternative. This also relies on IPS technology in order to provide the best possible viewing angle stability, vibrant, rich colours, high contrasts and an excellent black level. Thanks to the 100% coverage of the even larger Adobe RGB colour space, this display is particularly aimed at users who intend to use their gaming laptop as a powerful tool for professional content creation.

CONNECTIVITY CHAMPION WITH MAXIMUM PORT VARIETY

When it comes to connectivity, the XMG ULTRA 17 boasts a whole swarm of connectivity options: USB-C 3.2 Gen2x2, three additional USB-A 3.2 Gen2 ports and Thunderbolt 3 as well as USB-C 3.2 Gen2, each with alternative DisplayPort stream, are a clear statement. In addition, two NVIDIA G-SYNC-compatible Mini DisplayPort 1.4 interfaces and an HDCP-compatible HDMI 2.0 output are available for connecting a multi-monitor setup.
The network adapters offer several special features. For example, the Ethernet port for wired network connection already operates at a future-oriented speed of 2.5 GBit/s. The wireless module supports the current Wi-Fi 6 standard. As an option, the XMG ULTRA 17 can be equipped with a killer module to enable the DoubleShot Pro feature: In this way, for example, all gaming applications are prioritised via the fast Ethernet port, while the remaining network traffic is routed to the wireless channel. A further highlight of the laptop is its integrated card reader, which features outstanding transfer speeds thanks to its UHS-III connection.

UNLIMITED STORAGE CAPACITY

As the spearhead of the XMG portfolio, the XMG ULTRA 17 makes use of powerful reserves in terms of storage capacity. The laptop can hold up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM and distributes this to four SO-DIMM slots. With four M.2 slots for fast SSDs, the motherboard offers more extensive configuration options than most high-end boards from the desktop PC sector.
The laptop takes advantage of this generous configuration to cleverly combine it with advanced features to create an all-round exceptional total package. Not only can the drives be combined to form a RAID 0 or RAID 1 array, but when three M.2 SSDs are used simultaneously, they also support RAID 5 operation, which not only offers improved data throughput compared to a single storage drive, but also ensures higher data reliability through redundancy.
