Schenker XMG Ultra 17 (Clevo X170KM-G) in review: Massive powerhouse with lush equipment

Schenker’s massive desktop replacement notebook does not compromise in terms of equipment and computing power. Since not only RAM and storage media, but also CPU (socketed) and GPU (MXM) are exchangeable, the notebook can be individually tailored according to need. There are three GPUs (Ampere) and ten CPUs (Comet Lake, Rocket Lake) to choose from.
