ADATA XPG XENIA 15 KC Windows 11-ready gaming laptop has 165Hz display
Windows 11 is officially here, but not all new Windows computers will ship with that version of Microsoft's desktop operating system. Understandably, for a little while at least, some machines will still come with Windows 10... they will have the ability to upgrade to Windows 11, however.
Today, ADATA unveils such a laptop under its XPG gaming brand. Called "XENIA 15 KC," it comes with Windows 10 Home, but you can absolutely install Windows 11 when you want to. This gaming notebook is downright drool-worthy. It is powered by a very modern 8-core Intel Core i7 11800H CPU and super-powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU. The other components are impressive as well, including 32GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM, a 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD, RGB optical mechanical keyboard, and a 15.6-inch display with 165Hz refresh. It's a beast!
"The new XPG XENIA 15 KC takes full advantage of the latest 11th Gen Intel i7 11800H processor, NVIDIA RTX 3070 graphics, and top of the line XPG memory and SSD, to deliver top of the line benchmarks, close to or even outpacing higher spec systems in gaming performance and pixel-perfect productivity. To strike a satisfying balance between fast-paced action and rich, detailed visuals, a spacious 15.6-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) 165Hz IPS panel delivers the best of both worlds, perfectly tailored for its performance envelope. What’s more, it achieves 100 percent sRGB color coverage for accurate color reproduction for content creation," says ADATA.
The company also says, "The XPG XENIA 15 KC is fully equipped with a diverse selection of I/O ports and a variety of compatibility options, including a Thunderbolt 4 port, multiple high-speed USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, a 2.5 Gigabit LAN port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and an SDXC SD card reader. For additional connectivity, an Intel Wi-Fi 6 module takes high-speed up a notch with higher data rates, peak Gigabit speeds, increased efficiency, and lower latency. Additionally, the notebook sports a Windows Hello compatible IR camera that makes logging-in a breeze through facial recognition. With a large 94Whr battery, the XENIA 15 KC provides up to 7 hours of battery life for on-the-go productivity and gaming."
