Schenker Vision 14 E22: World’s thinnest and lightest 14-inch ultrabook presented

Hardware refresh for the Vision 14 ultrabook. After equipping the 14-inch notebook with a new model only last fall, the hardware refresh on Intel Alder Lake now follows. Intel’s Core i7-12700H with 14 cores replaces the previously used Tiger Lake CPUs in the Schenker Vision 14 E22 model version of the slim magnesium ultrabook. On the other hand, there is even an optional 99 Wh battery, while the weight drops to 1.1 or 1.3 kg depending on the battery variant.

Schenker Vision 14 E22: What’s in the new notebook

By switching to the new CPU generation, the Schenker Vision 14 ultrabook gets a whopping performance boost. The new E22 model now relies on the current Intel Core i7-12700H with 6 performance and 8 efficiency cores as well as 20 threads, after the last edition from October 2021 still used the Core i7-11370H (four cores, eight threads) at most.

This naturally results in a significant increase in performance. “Despite the very slim laptop design, the Core i7-12700H maintains a TDP of 40 watts even under Prime95 continuous load,” the manufacturer reveals.

A performance increase of around 40 percent compared to the predecessor is promised. This is proven by benchmark comparison data, in which the Vision 14 E22 reaches 9,093 points in Cinebench R23 in the highest Overboost mode with maximum fan settings) – compared to 6,534 points of the predecessor.

This is made possible, among other things, by an optimized cooling system with a dual-fan solution and the use of liquid metal heat sink on the CPU. The CPU performance is only supposed to drop minimally even in battery mode, which is of course quite an announcement.

The technical features

The rest of the features of the Schenker Vision 14 E22 are also impressive. The ultrabook measures 308.8 x 215 x 13.6 to 15.6 mm and weighs only 1.1 kg and 1.3 kg, respectively, despite the robust AZ91D magnesium case.

The weight is of course directly related to the installed battery. The manufacturer offers the notebook with two configurable battery options: The smaller and lighter 53 Wh model is only available in combination with the Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti.

Here, two M.2 SSD slots including a fast PCI Express 4.0 connection are added. For improved heat dissipation, the storage drives are connected to the magnesium case via a thermal pad.

At 1.3 kg, the second model is only slightly heavier, but comes with a 99 Wh battery. In return, you have to do without one of the two M.2 slots – of course, the larger battery requires more space in the case. In return, you will of course benefit from a much longer battery life, which is supposed to allow about 11 hours of video playback “in a very high image resolution” according to the manufacturer.

The Vision 14 E22 is also available with an integrated Intel Xe graphics unit or with Nvidia’s faster GeForce RTX 3050 Ti graphics card. The latter is available in an efficiency-focused version with a TGP of 45 watts (35 watts plus 10 watts Dynamic Boost 2.0), which should also allow demanding image and video processing.

Praiseworthy: The SSDs and the working memory are plugged in and can thus be exchanged or expanded. Up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM in two SO-DIMM slots are offered.

Hell 90 Hz display and many ports

When it comes to the display, the Schenker Vision 14 E22 relies on the same panel that was already used in the predecessor. Specifically, it is a matte (non-glare) IPS panel with a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels and a brightness of 380 cd/m².

It offers a refresh rate of 90 hertz and comes in a 16:10 format. It is also pre-calibrated at the factory and thus covers 99% of the sRGB color space.

The selection of ports is also impressive for a compact ultrabook. A DisplayPort- and Power Delivery-capable Thunderbolt 4 and USB-C port, two USB-A ports, HDMI, a full-size SD card reader and a 2-in-1 audio port (3.5 mm jack) are available.

Image output is also possible on up to three external monitors simultaneously. The ultrabook can be charged via the dedicated charging port using the included 90-Watt power adapter, or conveniently via USB-C.

A 13 x 8 cm Microsoft Precision-compliant glass touchpad and a flat keyboard with white backlight are used for inputting. The latter offers the possibility to permanently keep the secondary function of the F-keys active thanks to the FnLock feature.

Prices and Availability

The new 14-inch Schenker Vision 14 E22 notebook can now be configured freely on bestware.com. The model with Intel’s Core i7-12700H, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, 3K IPS display with 90 Hz and 53 Wh battery, which comes with 8 GB DDR4-3200 RAM and a 500 GB Samsung 980 SSD in the base variant, makes the start.

The price starts here at an MSRP of 1,842 Euros. The upgrade to the 99-Watt battery costs an additional 89 Euros and is supposed to be offered until the beginning of September 2022. Until then, there will also be the version with an integrated Intel Xe graphics chip, which starts at a price of 1,659 Euros – including the bigger battery. Schenker also gives a full 36-month warranty on its laptops purchased via its own platform.
