XMGMore Announced (opens in new tab) The latest high-end gaming laptops, the Neo 17 and 15, feature two high-performance models built around Ryzen 9 CPUs, selectable Nvidia GeForce GPUs, and attractive external liquid cooling systems.
In our roundup of the best gaming laptops, both the 17″ and 15″ models are powered by AMD’s Ryzen 9 6900HX (8 cores, 16 threads, up to 4.9 GHz with a default TDP of 45W, up to 85W). , the 17-inch model comes with his 330W PSU to get the most out of both that CPU and his Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 Ti GPU. A cooling system consisting of a pair of 11 mm fans, five heat pipes, and heat sinks attached to all exhaust vents covers the heat.
An optional external liquid cooling system known as Oasis is also available, according to XMG’s figures, and can lower GPU temperatures by 15 degrees Celsius in stress tests. We have yet to see a way to connect it to a laptop without spilling coolant.
Consumers can configure RAM up to 64GB of DDR5, and two M.2 sockets can accommodate the highest SSDs. The 17-inch model’s GPU is technically the top of Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080, and RTX 3080 Ti, and the 240 Hz display has a resolution of 2560×1600 with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The keyboard is also designed with gamers in mind, featuring Cherry MX switches and RGB. The laptop is also fully compatible with VR headsets thanks to a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port with an integrated DisplayPort 1.4 stream from the GPU.
The slightly smaller 15-inch model comes with an RTX 3060 GPU and is a good entry-level choice. That screen is his 16:9 WQXGA IPS display, but retains the Ryzen 9 CPU and its big brother’s liquid cooling potential. Additionally, he can also have GPUs up to the RTX 3080 Ti if desired.
The 15-inch laptop with the RTX 3060 is priced at €2,099 ($2,156), with options going up. The 17-inch model starts at €2,949 ($3029) with the RTX 3070 Ti and 16GB of RAM, while the Oasis cooler is priced at €199 ($205). Both models are available for pre-order now and will ship in September.
