Ray tracing and AI are driving the gaming revolution
NVIDIA's current Turing architecture, in the form of the new RTX series, offers far more than simply the best GPU performance in the mobile sector. Compared to previous top models, the new GeForce RTX 2080 is up to six times faster. This finally makes smooth 4k gaming more than just a promise. It also enables completely new graphics features and constitutes a quantum leap in terms of picture quality: AI algorithms can compute countless image optimisations on the new tensor cores. As the first GPU generation designed specifically for real-time ray tracing, the RTX series also conjures up previously unimaginable, cinematic-style, dramatic visual effects.
Unlimited desktop power with no ifs and buts
Intel's Core i9-9900K has eight cores, it can simultaneously process up to 16 threads and it heralds a completely new performance dimension with a maximum turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz. In terms of performance, this high-end desktop processor is far superior to any of the alternatives designed exclusively for the mobile sector. Do you want to play the latest games at the same time as streaming your own gameplay, while also keeping an eye on communication with your followers? That's no problem for Intel's latest flagship desktop.
Displays offering a refresh rate of 144 Hz are combined with NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology to form the ideal foundation for the smoothest possible game presentation. Lags, glitches and screen tearing are consigned to history. If you connect up an additional, external gaming monitor the Mini DisplayPorts also provide full G-SYNC support.
Enormous memory capacity
With up to 64 GB DDR4-RAM, XMG ULTRA laptops are equipped even for future requirements. The main memory has a rapid clock speed of 2666 MHz. Compared to current DDR4-2400 modules, this quicker alternative delivers a ten percent improvement in performance.
Maximum immersion level
With powerful hardware that is officially certified by NVIDIA as VR-ready, the XMG ULTRA is the ultimate companion for immersion in virtual reality. Even the latest VR games are played out without any distracting lags, offering optimum image quality and breathtaking physical effects.
Epic panoramic view
NVIDIA Surround View allows you to integrate up to three external monitors to create a single, gigantic viewing area – either with two monitors via the Mini DisplayPorts and a third via HDMI or with one monitor each connected via Mini DisplayPort, HDMI and Thunderbolt 3.
The XMG ULTRA series uses a particularly responsive IPS display with a wide viewing angle. This not only allows smooth playback of particularly rapid game titles, it also means you benefit from the technology's most fundamental assets. Particularly intense colours, excellent black levels and high-quality contrast form the basis for the ideal gaming experience.
Limitless disk space
Do you need space? Lots of space? Then you've found the perfect solution: no fewer than four hard drives or SSDs can be integrated. Two classic 2.5 inch slots are complemented by two cutting-edge M.2 slots. RAID support is included too of course.
Rapid SSD performance
Two internal M.2 interfaces for NVMe SSDs ensure a significant boost to system performance and minimise in-game load times. Thanks to connectivity via four PCIe 3.0 lanes, when compared to conventional SATA drives, the memory turbos offer up to seven times the bandwidth (throughput) while simultaneously achieving access times that are up to three times quicker.
The connectivity options of a fully-fledged desktop system
The XMG ULTRA 15 incorporates a total of six USB ports: 2x USB-C 3.1 Gen2, 3x USB-A 3.0 and 1x USB-a 2.0. The Thunderbolt 3 interface, which is implemented via one of the USB C ports, doubles the maximum data throughput in comparison to its predecessors, achieving up to 40 Gbit/s. As well as offering a quick charging option for external devices (5 volt, 3 amp), the socket is also suitable as an additional graphics output for connecting an external 4k monitor.
Rich, clear sound
As well as an integrated loudspeaker system, which gives the XMG ULTRA 15 its clear sound quality, the laptop offers enhanced features for outstanding audio reproduction. With the addition of an ESS SABRE HiFi DAC, users of high-quality headsets are also offered another first-class playback option. SoundBlasterX Pro-Gaming 360° ensures immersive 3D sound. Among other things, these optimisations make it easier to locate sounds, such as an opponent's movements within a particular area. The laptops also support external surround-sound reproduction.
Enhanced prioritisation of network traffic
Killer DoubleShot Pro hands over control of network traffic prioritisation to the user. This feature allows you to give priority to particular applications, such as games, over other programmes. An optional Killer WiFi module allows both wireless and wired network connections to be reserved exclusively for specific software traffic. For example, pro gamers can let their games communicate exclusively with the internet via the Ethernet cable, while all other programs utilise the separate WiFi connection. The benefit: maximum bandwidth and extremely low ping times allow faster responses to game events.
