ADATA and XPG, ADATA's enthusiast gaming-focused sub-brand, have made significant strides since XPG was formed back in 2008. ADATA was originally a vendor of value-oriented memory and SSDs, but has with time climbed to a position of prominence, and serves a growing PC gaming market with the formation of XPG, which had the company really kick things into high gear by offering performance-focused memory and SSDs while also expanding into cases, power supplies, keyboards, and now laptops with the Xenia 15 series I will be reviewing today.
Equipped with an Intel i7-9750H 6c/12t CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the XPG Xenia 15 I will be looking at today is the more affordable option of the two models they have released. They also chose to use their own memory and SSDs with these units, which may give them a leg up over other OEM designs. But with that said, this is a traditional 15.6" model, so no touch screens or other gimmicks are included. Instead, the whole package as delivered is a solid mid-range gaming laptop for $1399. Considering it also packs a 1080P 144 Hz IPS panel for the display, I wouldn't say it is a bad deal for such a compact unit, at least on paper. However, before I heap any praise on the XPG Xenia 15, a closer look is definitely necessary, including at its internals because with these specifications and its compact size, I imagine it is likely to get a bit toasty as well.
