XMG NEO: Introducing the first gaming laptops with 165 Hz WQHD IPS display

Leipzig, Germany, 26th November 2020 – By introducing the latest versions of the XMG NEO 15 and NEO 17 gaming laptops, XMG is among the first manufacturers worldwide to offer high-resolution WQHD displays featuring a refresh rate of 165 Hz. Since the launch of the first series in 2018, XMG NEO laptops have been providing maximum gaming performance following a long tradition of innovation and integrating cutting-edge technology ahead of the competition. As part of a sales promotion for Black Friday, the company is offering both laptops at a substantial discount via its own online store bestware.com.

165 Hz IPS gaming displays with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 – finally!
The demand for fast, high-resolution and fully gaming-ready displays in laptops has been on the rise among the gaming community for several years now. This comes as no surprise, since mobile processors and graphics cards from NVIDIA, Intel and AMD have recently been able to catch up with their desktop counterparts in terms of overall gaming performance. While Full HD displays were previously the established standard even in most high-end devices, XMG now believes that the time has come to switch to a higher resolution: the NEO 15 and NEO 17 are therefore now available with a 165 Hz WQHD IPS display, complementing the existing 240 Hz Full HD option. The new high-resolution display offers razor sharp image quality thanks to its impressively high pixel density of 188 ppi (15.6 inch) and 170 ppi (17.3 inch) respectively. For comparison, external 4K UHD monitors in the popular 27 inch size class offer no more than 163 ppi. While the excellent sRGB colour space coverage is almost 100 percent, the brightness reaches well above 300 nits.
The displays are technically identical to the panels that US manufacturer Eluktronics also announced a few days ago would be available for two of its upcoming laptops (XMG NEO 15: BOE NE156QHM-NY2, XMG NEO 17: BOE NE173QHM-NY2).

The new WQHD displays are not the first innovation that XMG has made available to its customers in the NEO model series at an early stage. Back when the initial version was released in 2018, the German based company introduced what was then a brand new, opto-mechanical keyboard, which set a trend that other manufacturers and brands subsequently followed. With its precise responsiveness, the input device is one of the key features of the XMG NEO 15 and NEO 17, albeit in a version improved over several generations. The keyboard utilises tactile silent switches with an actuation point of two millimetres, a travel distance of one millimetre and is characterised by an actuating force of 60 g (cN). It also features Anti-Ghosting, N-Key rollover and freely configurable RGB per-key illumination.

XMG NEO 15 and NEO 17: Powerful solution for WQHD gaming
The top configurations of the XMG NEO series feature Intel’s Core i7-10875H with eight cores and 16 threads as well as graphics cards up to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER. An optional configuration with a GeForce RTX 2070 Refresh is also available. Both graphics cards are performance optimised Max-P versions, with the maximum specified TGP of 115 watts. In combination with the freely configurable RAM of up to 64 GB and a maximum of two M.2 SSDs with PCI Express support, it is easy to put together a high-end gaming laptop that powers the high-resolution WQHD display with high frame rates, even in AAA game titles, to take full advantage of the fast 165 Hz refresh rate – including real-time ray tracing and Deep

Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS). At the same time as the official launch of the laptops, a video will be published on the YouTube channel Jarrod’s Tech, proving their remarkable performance potential. At very high graphics settings, the XMG NEO at native WQHD resolution delivers around 120 FPS in Fortnite (High Preset), 150 FPS in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege (Ultra Preset) and 230 FPS in CS:GO (High Preset). Compared to the otherwise common Full HD resolution, the performance drop is only 22 to 35 percent depending on the game, despite a 78 percent higher number of pixels. However, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX graphics card easily makes up for this difference in games with DLSS 2.0 support, including the upcoming AAA title Cyberpunk 2077. With DLSS 2.0 activated in an existing title such as Control (High Preset), the performance increase of the RTX 2070 SUPER is an impressive 67 percent, raising the FPS from 48 to 81. Thanks to the use of liquid metal for processor cooling, even under full load the XMG NEO Series achieves operating temperatures up to 9° C lower compared to conventional thermal compounds.

XMG Neo 15

Connectivity, chassis dimensions and weight
The connectivity options are identical for the XMG NEO 15 and NEO 17. Both gaming laptops offer Thunderbolt 3 including two DisplayPort streams directly connected to the NVIDIA graphics card, three USB 3.2 ports, HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 support, Gigabit LAN, WiFi 6, an SD card reader and separate audio jacks for a microphone and headphones or a headset. While the XMG NEO 17 utilises a 62 Wh battery, the XMG NEO 15 has a 93 Wh unit. At 359.8 x 243 x 23 mm and around 2.1 kg (XMG NEO 15) and 395.7 x 260.8 x 27.45 mm and around 2.5 kg (XMG NEO 17), the laptops offer a high degree of portability in their respective performance and size classes.

Microsoft has created an open source New Employee Onboarding (NEO) hub to help organizations improve their onboarding process and experience the benefits of a well-planned new employee onboarding process. The NEO hub helps organizations:

  • Provide new employee experiences and information
  • Connect new employees to people & culture
  • Help stakeholders easily contribute to new employee onboarding
  • Measure effectiveness of new employee onboarding

Why invest in a new employee onboarding site?

New employee onboarding (NEO) should be a strategic process that integrates new employees into an organization and its culture while providing the knowledge and tools needed to become fully contributing team members.NEO processes often fall short for both the new hires and the organization. Only 12% of employees strongly agree their organization does a great job of onboarding new employees. An engaging and well organized NEO process can make all the difference in helping a new hire navigate through an exciting – but stressful - career journey, and it can have major organizational benefits.

Strategically planned NEO experience can:

Improve new hire performance and time to productivity -Organizations with a standard onboarding process report 50% greater new-hire productivity.*

Improve new employee retention -Based on our research, 69% of employees are more likely to stay with a company for three years if they had a great onboarding experience. Employees who have a negative onboarding experience are twice as likely to look for new opportunities in the near future.**

The NEO experience process:

Provide new employee experiences and informationConnect new employees to people and cultureHelp stakeholders easily contribute to new employee onboardingMeasure effectiveness of new employee onboarding
Sense of placePre-onboardingDepartmental and team onboardingValue realization
Onboarding journeySocial connections and live eventsEasy to create and maintain compelling content experiencesExample model for KPIs

NEO hub features:

  • A fully configured and customizable set of new hire sites built on SharePoint communication sites: The NEO hub includes the sites, information architecture, design, user interface and features to help provide new hires with a great onboarding experience. The NEO hub can be customized to add your organization’s new hire content and to align with its look and feel. The NEO hub sites are responsive and work as they should on mobile.
  • Onboarding journey: Onboarding can be an overwhelming experience for new hires with everything the new hire is typically expected to do and learn in a short period of time. Avoid overwhelming your new employees by providing them a curated onboarding journey that paces the new hire through a configurable activity list of administrative, technology, culture, training, and connection related to-do’s. The onboarding journey comes with a pre-configured list of new employee onboarding activities for you to customize for your processes.
  • Sample new hire site pages: To inspire and provide design templates for arranging your content, the NEO hub includes sample inner site pages. Use these site pages as templates for your content.
  • Easy provisioning: Provision the NEO hub from the SharePoint look book with just a few steps.
  • Mobile ready: The NEO hub can be easily accessed on a mobile device when you get the SharePoint mobile app.

NEO hub sites:

New employee onboarding involves multiple levels within an organization, including corporate onboarding, and departmental onboarding. Sometimes teams within a department also need a unique onboarding experience. Each onboarding level provides its own unique value, contributing to a comprehensive onboarding experience each new employee should experience.Research has shown Pre-onboarding new hires, after they sign their acceptance letter but before they officially join the company, can lead to higher performance and better retention rates.To deliver a consistent and integrated new hire onboarding experience the Microsoft open source New Employee Onboarding hub consists of three types of SharePoint site templates, designed to work as one cohesive and familiar experience for new hires.

Pre-onboarding siteCorporate onboarding siteDepartmental onboarding sites
Share the Pre-onboarding site with new hires as soon as the job offer has been acceptedShare the Corporate onboarding site with new hires on their first dayManagers and onboarding buddies should share their respective Departmental onboarding site

  1. Pre-Onboarding site: A site for new hires, who have yet to officially join the company, to learn more about the company they have joined and to get ready for their official start date. External guest access can be used for providing pre-start hires, with no corporate credentials, access to the Pre-onboarding site only.
  2. Corporate onboarding site: A place for new hires to visit to get the information they need and make the connections they want to successfully onboard to the organization.
  3. Departmental onboarding sites: A place for new hires to visit to learn more about the department they are joining, its people, culture, and priorities. The new employee onboarding hub includes two departmental template sites, one for an engineering department and one for a sale department

Step 1: Provision NEO hub

The New Employee Onboarding (NEO) hub can be provisioned from the SharePoint look book. With the SharePoint look book, a Microsoft 365 global admin can start the provisioning process with a few steps. The whole process takes about 20 minutes to provision. Before starting the provisioning process, make sure you have met the prerequisites for provisioning.

Prerequisites

To successfully set up the NEO hub via the SharePoint look book, the person doing the provisioning must be a Global admin of the tenant where the NEO hub will be provisioned. If you have never provisioned a template form the Look book, review overview guidance.

Provision the NEO hub

  1. Go to the NEO hub solution page.

  2. Select Add to your tenant. If you are not signed into to your tenant, the SharePoint look book will ask for your Global admin credentials.

  3. From the permissions requested dialog box, select Consent on behalf of your organization and then select Accept.

    The provisioning service requires these permissions to provision the site template. There is no overall impact on your tenant and these permissions are explicitly used for the purpose of the solution installation. You must accept these permissions to proceed with the installation.

  4. Complete the fields on the provisioning information page as appropriate for your installation. At a minimum enter the email address where you wish to get notifications about the provisioning process and the URL prefix for your site to be provisioned to.

    Note

    Provisioning the NEO Hub will result in 4 separate site collections getting installed in your tenant. You will be prompted to enter the 4 new site URLs where you can edit the site name, site title, description, and default value.

  5. Select Provision when ready to install the NEO hub into your tenant environment. The provisioning process will take up to 15 minutes. You will be notified via email (to the notification email address you entered on the Provisioning page) when the site is ready for access.

Note

Have provisioning questions? Need to report an issue? Post your questions and comments about the provisioning of the NEO hub to the SharePoint provisioning service forum.

Enable external sharing for the Pre-onboarding site

The Pre-onboarding site is intended to be shared with new hires as soon as they sign their offer letter, but before they start their first day at work. Therefore, this site needs to be shared with external users. External sharing is off by default for SharePoint communication sites. In order for site owners to share externally, turn on external sharing for the Pre-onboarding site.

Add owners to all sites

As the Global admin, you may not be the person customizing the sites, so you'll need to assign a few site owners to the sites. Owners have administrative privileges on the site so they can modify site pages, content, and branding.

  1. Select Share in the right-hand corner of the site.
  2. Add users, Office 365 Groups, or security groups to give them access to the site.
  3. Assign users as a Site owner to allow permission to customize the site.
  4. Include the site URL in the Share message, and then select Share.

Step 2: Customize the onboarding experience

The New Employee Onboarding (NEO) hub consists of four SharePoint site templates that can be customized to fit the needs of your users and organization. Many of the core pages are already built and pre-populated with content. Review content on sites and pages, then plan on customizing content, images, branding, web parts, and pages.

It’s important to make sure the right content is available to users at the right time. It’s also important to make new employees feel welcome before their first day. Organizations with a standardized onboarding process report 50% greater new-hire productivity. Alternatively, employees who have a negative onboarding experience are twice as likely to look for new opportunities shortly after starting a new job.

Before you customize content in the NEO experience, ensure you understand the needs of your users and the business objectives of your organization. New hires will need different kinds of support and resources depending on the onboarding phase and culture of your organization. Begin by signing into your account and reviewing pre-populated content. Then, customize content and prepare to share the site with new hires.

NEO hub contents:

Pre-onboarding siteCorporate onboarding siteDepartmental onboarding sites
Share the Pre-onboarding site with new hires as soon as the job offer has been acceptedShare the Corporate onboarding site with new hires on their first dayManagers and onboarding buddies should share their respective Departmental onboarding site
  1. Pre-Onboarding site: A site for new hires, who have yet to officially join the company, to learn more about the company they have joined and to get ready for their official start date. External guest access can be used for pre-start hires who don't already have corporate credentials to give them access to the Pre-onboarding site only.

  2. Corporate onboarding site: A place for new hires to visit to get the information they need and make the connections they want to successfully onboard to the organization.

    Note

    The corporate new hire site is a hub and the departmental site templates are associated sites. This creates a coherent and consistent experience for the new hire across the corporate and departmental new hire sites. Learn more about SharePoint hub sites.

  3. Departmental onboarding sites: A place for new hires to visit to learn more about the department they are joining, its people, culture, and priorities. The new employee onboarding hub includes two departmental template sites, one for an engineering department and one for a sales department. Consider associating departmental onboarding sites with existing department portals if you have them.

Get started - Sign into your Microsoft 365 account

Note

You need to be a site owner to customize and share the NEO sites. Work with your SharePoint administrator if you don’t already have access.

  1. Open your web browser and navigate to office.com or your organization’s sign-in location.

  2. Sign in with your username and password.

  3. Navigate to the location of the site using the URL supplied by your Global admin, or select SharePoint from the Microsoft 365 home page, and then select the site.

Explore and review pre-populated content

Customize the content and look of your NEO sites

Now that you’ve reviewed the pre-built pages and pre-populated content, you are ready to customize the NEO experience for your organization.

Navigation

Site navigation is important because it helps users immediately understand what can be accomplished on a given site. The most effective SharePoint sites help viewers find what they need quickly so that they can use the information to make decisions, learn about what is going on, access the tools they need, or engage with colleagues to help solve a problem. Edit the hub and site navigation for all three NEO site designs to meet the needs of your audience and organization. Learn how to edit site navigation.

Web parts

Customize web parts with images, labels, links, and content that align with your organization’s mission. Keep images and descriptions simple and easy to understand for your new-hire audience.

  • Hero web part - Bring focus and visual interest to your page with the Hero web part. You can display up to five items in the Hero web part and use compelling images, text, and links to draw attention to each.
  • Text web part - Use the Text web part to add paragraphs to your page. Formatting options like styles, bullets, indentations, highlighting, and links are available.
  • Image web part – Use the Image web part to add an image to a page.
  • Quick links web part – Organize and display links to other resources with the Quick links web part.
  • People web part – Use the People web part to display profile photos, contact information, and organizational information for people at work.
  • Twitter web part - Use the Twitter web part to highlight topics and conversations on SharePoint pages.
  • YouTube web part - Use the YouTube web part to embed YouTube videos right on your page.

Site theme and branding

Edit the look of your SharePoint site to align with your organization's brand. Customize the site display name, logo, theme, header layout, navigation style, and more in the Change the look panel.

Hub site settings

SharePoint hub sites help connect and organize sites based on project, department, division, region, etc. making it easier to:

  • Discover related content such as news and other site activities
  • Apply common navigation, branding, and site structure across associated sites
  • Search across all associated sites.

  • How to use web parts on SharePoint pages
  • Use the Events web part
  • Use the News web part

Step 3: Share the NEO sites with end users

Windows

After customizing content, get ready to share the new onboarding experience with new hires. Different permissions will apply to the Pre-onboarding site since users will be external guests. Once new hires start working, use internal permissions sharing instructions to give access to the corporate onboarding site.

Pre-onboarding site: External guest access

Note

If you are unable to add visitors (external users, also referred to as guests) to the pre-boarding site, work with your SharePoint administrator to turn on external sharing for a SharePoint site.

As a site owner, you can give external people access to the site by adding them as a visitor.

  1. Select Share site from the right hand corner.
  2. In the Share site pane, enter the names of people to add them to the site. The permission level will be ready only.
  3. Enter an optional message to send to the person, or clear the Send email box if you don't want to send an email.
  4. Select Share.

Corporate new hire site and departmental sites

  1. Select Share site from the right-hand corner.
  2. In the Share site pane, enter the names of people or groups to add them to the site, or enter 'Everyone except external users' to share the site with everyone in your organization.
  3. Change the permission level (Read, Edit, or Full control) as needed.
  4. Enter an optional message to send to the person or clear the Send email box if you don't want to send an email.
  5. Select Share.

Step 4: Measure the impact of your NEO hub

Define NEO hub success metrics

Define site success metrics to measure and optimize your organization’s onboarding process. The following is an example of possible metrics for a new employee onboarding hub:

Leverage site usage data

For example, you can see the number of people who have visited the site, how many times people have visited the site, and a list of files that have received the most views. Site owners should utilize SharePoint’s built-in site usage reporting capabilities to measure the impact of the NEO hub. Learn how to view usage analytics for your site.

Step 5: Manage and maintain your NEO hub

The NEO Hub should present the most up to date content your organization has to offer, so you’ll need to commit to maintaining relevant content throughout the experience. Develop a plan to audit content and refresh web parts as needed to ensure contact information, FAQs, the onboarding checklist, and People web parts are up to date.

  • Update content in web parts. Keep web parts like the People web part updated to ensure you are leveraging the full value of the NEO Hub.

  • Establish a schedule to audit content. Plan when site owners should audit content in advance to make sure your sites are always up to date.
  • Periodically review your site settings. Make changes to the settings, site information, and permissions for the site as needed.
