Schenker Vision 14 and Vision 16 (Pro): Powerful ultrabooks introduced
Manufacturer Schenker updates its Schenker Vision 14 and Vision 16 (Pro) ultrabooks to the latest generation. New features include the Intel Core i7-3700H and up-to-date graphics cards – even up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 and RTX 4070 in the Pro model.

Schenker Vision 6 Pro: Ultrabook with brute power
Not until October 2022 did Schenker announce two high-performance and particularly lightweight notebooks with the Vision 16 and Vision 16 Pro ultrabooks. The new top model is called Schenker Vision 16 Pro M23 and relies on a fast Intel Core i7-13700H with 6 performance and 8 efficiency cores as well as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 or 4060 as freely selectable configuration options. Both have a GPU performance of up to 95 watts, which is made up of 70 watts plus 25 watts Dynamic Boost.
At the same time, the ultrabook is particularly slim with dimensions of 354 x 245 x 17.1 mm and weighs just 1.6 kilograms thanks to the AZ91D magnesium case. “There is currently no lighter 16-inch ultrabook with a comparable combination of processor and graphics card, and it is also one of the thinnest representatives in its performance class,” promises the manufacturer.
Schenker has also revised and improved the cooling. Completely newly developed, larger and quieter fans are used here, while an additional heat pipe on VRAM and MOSFETs of the graphics card as well as liquid metal (Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut) are supposed to cool the CPU and GPU effectively.
Up to 64 GB of DDR5 RAM and two M.2 SSDs with fast PCIe 4.0 connections can be accommodated in the Schenker Vision 16 Pro, both of which are also kept in check thanks to thermal conduction pads. RAM and system memory are also plugged in and can be conveniently upgraded.
Display and ports in the Schenker Vision 16 Pro
Furthermore, the notebook relies on a 16-inch IPS display, which has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels in 16:10 format and covers 95 percent of the sRGB color space. The maximum brightness is 350 cd/m², while the panel achieves a refresh rate of up to 240 hertz. The internally screwed and thus replaceable battery has a capacity of 80 watt hours.
Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C 3.2 Gen x1, both with DisplayPort legacy mode, are offered. The Thunderbolt 4 port supports PowerDelivery for using a USB-C travel power adapter, and the laptop is charged via a 180 watt power adapter by default.
Thanks to HDMI 2.0, up to three additional monitors can be connected. Two times USB-A (3.2 Gen1), a 2-in-1 audio port and a card reader for full-size SD cards round off the features.
The ultrabook relies on a full-size keyboard with numeric keypad, dedicated arrow keys and Fn-Lock function. The centrally positioned, Microsoft Precision-compliant glass touchpad measures 154 x 100 mm and can be quickly deactivated by double-tapping, for example.
Schenker Vision 16 with Intel Iris Xe
The new Schenker Vision 16 (M23) offers many of the advantages of the Pro model, but comes without a dedicated graphics card and accordingly relies on the Intel Iris Xe graphics unit. This also reduces the weight to around 1.5 kilograms.
“Case dimensions and material, memory and connectivity, as well as the input devices and the display are largely identical to the Pro variant,” says Schenker.
Schenker Vision 14 launches as world’s lightest ultrabook
The smaller Vision 14 from last year also gets an upgrade to the M23 model variant. It is also equipped with an Intel Core i7-13700H processor and relies on a lightweight case made of AZ91D magnesium. Thus, it has dimensions of 308.8 x 215 x 16.6 mm with a weight of only 1.33 kilograms with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Refresh with 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM (50 Watt TDP) or 1.28 kg with an integrated Iris Xe graphics unit.
A 99 watt-hour battery also promises excellent runtimes in the compact notebook: Up to 12:30 hours of video playback should be possible at 150 cd/m² brightness in the energy-saving profile.
The highlights of the compact ultrabook still include the high-resolution, anti-reflective 16:10 IPS display with 2,880 x 1,800 pixels, a brightness of 380 cd/m2, 99 percent sRGB color space coverage and 90 Hz technology. Furthermore, the working memory and SSD can be upgraded here as well. An M.2 slot and two SO-DIMM slots for a maximum of 64 GB DDR5 RAM can be found in the case.
In terms of ports, Thunderbolt 4, USB-C 3.2 Gen 2×1, two USB-A (3.1 Gen1), HDMI 2.0, a card reader for SD cards and a 2-in-1 audio port are available. Charging is done via a 150 watt (RTX 3050) or 120 watt power supply, alternatively charging via PowerDelivery on the Thunderbolt 4 port is also possible.
