Windows 10 was pre-installed on our system and XMG had applied some updates at the factory which was nice to see.

As far as software goes, we get Intel’s tweaking/monitoring panel, Sound Blaster X-Fi control panel for our audio and Killer network suite for managing our connectivity. XMG also bundle a software panel which allow us to configure our keyboard functionality.

XMG U705 Review G-Sync – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality and design of the U705 we have a laptop which rates highly. The finish across the system is good, the branding minimal and the overall shape/profile decent. We particularly like the port layout of the system which allows us to plug in USB devices and cables with routing we decide on, rather than forcing to one side or the other. Having all the display outputs on the back of the system is ideal also.

In terms of component choice, no faults there either. XMG allow us to choose a specification which suits our budget from i5/965M and 4GB with a single mechanical drive right up to i7, 980M, 32GB and 5 drives. The screen isnt configurable, but thats the point of this model…its G-Sync compatibility. You can read more about G-Sync here but the basics are that the graphics card syncs with the maximum refresh rate of the display (in this case 75Hz) to intelligently manage framerate at  up to 75fps and remove tearing from our games. We can of course disable G-sync to maximise framerate if we want…but 75fps with maximum IQ should suit pretty much everyone.

Elsewhere on the performance front the experience continues to be impressive. Yes the battery life is “limited” at around 1.5 hours of gaming and 3.5 in general/media use but that’s to be expected of a system with this spec. SSD speed is class leading, USB 3.0 performance sits at the high end of the market too and with the choice of GPU, CPU and Memory which was in our system it’s hard to find any faster single GPU based laptop.

The XMG U705 is available to order here.

  1. Will get one with the same config but 16Gb of ram next week. Let me know if you have any questions.

  2. As an owner of the XMG P505 Pro for about 11 months now, they sure know how to make them. Very well made systems.
