Those with deep pockets could be eyeing this potentially ultimate laptop of 2020. This laptop comes on the heels of Intel’s most recent launch. Just yesterday it announced its lineup of 10th Gen Core S-series desktop CPUs. German company XMG has taken that ball and is running fast with it. They have announced the world’s first laptop to feature Intel’s new flagship CPU, the XMG Ultra 17. Add in the ability to configure it with NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 SUPER, and you also can have the world’s most powerful mobile gaming GPU solution.
