CyberPower Intros Gaming Laptop With Core i7-3940XM EE

On Monday CyberPower launched the FangBook X7, a “blazingly fast, terrifyingly powerful” gaming notebook packing hardware like Intel’s i7-3940XM Extreme Edition Processor and Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 680M GPU. Of course, it you don’t have the budget for that kind of PC gaming meat, there are also leaner configurations starting at $1,299 USD.

“The Fangbook is an excellent gaming system, and a great GPU is at the heart of every great gaming system,” said Brian Choi, notebook GPU product manager at Nvidia.  “The GeForce GTX 680M is the fastest, most advanced GPU ever built for a notebook and makes a great foundation for the Fangbook to build from.”

The new FangBook X7 takes a bite out of the competition (sorry had to go there) providing a 17.3-inch Full HD anti-glare LED display, and premium speakers with a subwoofer to extend your immersive gaming experience on-the-go without sacrificing quality or performance. A backlit keyboard with spring loaded anti-ghosting programmable keys keeps you in the game even when you’re away from a desktop gaming setup.

CyberPower said its new gaming laptop also offers up to 32 GB of performance memory and up to 2 TB of storage with dual HDD bays that also support RAID 0 or CyberPower’s own Ultra RAID mode. By utilizing two mSATA SSDs in RAID 0, this revolutionary technology breaks the speed limit with lightning fast speeds over 900 MB/s, the company said.

The general list of features include Intel’s Core i7-3630QM CPU, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 675MX, 8 GB of DDR3 memory, a 750 GB 7200 RPM HDD, and a 24x DVDRW. Also on the list is a back-lit RED gaming keyboard, 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, an HDMI port, USB 3.0 and a 720p webcam. The laptop measures 16.85 – x 11.34- x 2.17-inches and weighs under eight pounds.

The new FangBook X7, pre-loaded with Windows 8, is available now, starting at $1,299 USD. The default specs of three customizable models, the X7-100, the X7-200 and the X7-300, are listed below.
