Schenker XMG P505 gaming laptop review


The gaming laptop is chunky, but performs. Schenker XMG P505 benchmarks

The XMG P505 is a very accomplished game player, fueled by its top-of-the-range Nvidia mobile graphics processor. The Clevo platform to support this is fairly standard chunky games machine fare, although the all-up weight of around 2.6 kg is modest by...

More powerful and better built than its predecessor, but competition is tight at this end of the market

Schenker XMG P505 PRO (Clevo P651SG) Notebook Review


15-inch reference? The XMG P505 from Schenker Technologies is supposed to close the gap between big 17-inch systems (Asus G751, MSI GT72) and ultra-thin compact gamers like the Gigabyte P34G v2. We have already reviewed the configuration with the GTX...

More compact and lighter than other gaming notebooks, Illuminated keyboard with good mechanics, Good port variety, Above-average sound, All components can be accessed, Excellent IPS panel, Individual configuration, Excellent performance, Very large...

Cannot always use the maximum Turbo potential, Surfaces susceptible to dirt, Throttling under maximum load, CPU and GPU soldered, Bulky power adaptor, Battery screwed

It might sound absurd, but the lack of the Core i7-4870HQ and the 4K panel, which were used in the first review unit, actually improves the rating of the XMG P505. The Core i7-4710HQ results in lower temperatures and the Full HD version increases the...

Clevo P651SE (Schenker XMG P505) Barebones Notebook Review


Full speed ahead. After the top GPUs from the last Nvidia generation were still based on the Kepler architecture, both the GeForce GTX 980M and GTX 970 finally use the Maxwell architecture. We check the performance with the Clevo P651SE Barebone.

Many ports and expansion slots, High-quality panel, Good maintainability, Thin and light chassis, Individual configurations, Enormous GPU performance, Great input devices, Very fast SSD, No bloat ware, Stylish design

Idle consumption could be better, Quite loud and hot in 3D operation, Very glossy QFHD display, CPU throttling under maximum load, Slightly wobbly display hinges, Fluctuating Turbo Boost, Power adaptor at its limit, Poor battery runtimes, CPU & GPU...

The verdict of the XMG P505 depends on how important the thin chassis is for you. If you are often on the road and don’t want to waive the high performance, then the P651SE barebone is a good choice. The gaming notebook is behind the rivals in some...

XMG P505 Review (GTX 980M Laptop)


Over the past few years XMG have released a number of quality laptops, specifically aimed at gamers. Today we take a look at their latest model, featuring high end Intel i7 CPU and the latest GeForce GTX 980M in our XMG P505 Review.

Starting with the overall design of the P505 we have a laptop which is essentially pretty plain to look at, though that is no bad thing. It looks decent and there are no garish sections which often feature on gaming laptops. The build quality is...
