Core i9-11900K and 165-watt GeForce RTX 3080 in a laptop.
Now that desktop graphics cards are not available or are offered at very high prices, it is more profitable than ever to buy gaming laptops. For example, a mobile PC with a GeForce RTX 3060 costs only 30-50% more than the RTX 3060 itself, although, under normal conditions, the difference should be about three times.
At the same time, we know that mobile Ampere video cards are much inferior to desktop ones, and there are no really high-performance modern solutions among Intel mobile CPUs.
But the Schenker XMG Ultra 17 laptop solves these problems. Firstly, it is based on the desktop Core i9-11900K, which is very good, as our tests have shown. Secondly, the GeForce RTX 3080 is used as a video card – albeit a mobile one, but with an incredible 165 W power limit … This is probably the most powerful laptop in terms of features to date. True, its power consumption should go off the scale.
The negotiated configuration is the top-end for the device. You can also equip your PC with a Core i7-11700K processor and GeForce RTX 3060 or RTX 3070 video cards with TGP 130 and 140 W, respectively. Also, the laptop can be equipped with 128 GB of RAM, and the storage subsystem can include up to four SSDs.
A 17-inch Full HD screen can distinguish the rest with G-Sync support and a frequency of 300 Hz or a 60-hertz 4K panel, a large number of ports, including a pair of Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.1, and dimensions of 399 x 319 x 43.5 mm with a mass of 4, 6 kg.
The basic version is estimated at 2,800 euros, but you will have to pay at least 4,730 euros for the top-end version, and this is in the version with one SSD. However, when the desktop GeForce RTX 3080 alone can cost $ 2,500, such a laptop’s price no longer seems too high.
