Gigabyte and Schenker team up to create ultimate gaming laptops


The XMG Core Series will offer high-powered customisable laptops with top class design

Gigabyte and Schenker have announced a joint partnership today that will see both laptop manufacturers marketing and selling special high-performance gaming laptops under Schenker’s XMG brand.

Both companies already offer their own portable gaming systems, ranging from entry-level devices to laptops for professional eSports gamers, but this new partnership will see a new range of gaming laptops called the “XMG Core Series, powered by Gigabyte”.

Previously, Gigabyte gaming laptops have had top class design but their fixed specifications meant customers haven’t been able to customise the laptop to their liking.

Schenker, on the other hand, have offered a wide range of customisable laptops, but their off-the-shelf Clevo chassis always leave a lot to be desired in the design department.

This new partnership aims to combine each company’s strength to create customisable laptops with great-looking chassis.

“We are looking forward to a very promising partnership with Schenker Technologies for the European market”, said Vincent Liu, Director of Sales Division for Gigabyte Technology. “The increasing demand, especially in the configurable gaming laptop sector, was the deciding factor for us in expanding our portfolio.”

“Gamers really put a lot of stock in the performance of their hardware and the ability to customize their products as they see fit”, explained Robert Schenker, Founder and Managing Director of Schenker Technologies. “But ever increasingly we have received requests for laptops with a certain element of additional lifestyle-characteristics and a more elegant design. Precisely for this reason, Gigabyte will be the perfect partner for us, with their well-thought design and high-quality quality.”
