Eurocom Launches the Scorpius Range of HPC Notebooks

By - Source: Eurocom | B 2 comments

Eurocom’s latest additions to its range of mobile workstations offer a 17.3” display and almost unrivaled processing power in a relatively compact and lightweight package.

Though Eurocom’s Scorpius notebooks may be stretching the definitions of what can be considered a mobile device, the fact that it offers a 17.3” display and enough processing power to put an average gaming desktop to shame, makes it quite an accomplishment that it has a starting weight of 3.9 kg and measures just 419 x 286 x 49.77 mm.

Eurocom offers the Scorpius mobile workstations as either the standard Scorpius P370EM or the Scorpius 3D, which as the name suggests, includes a 120 Hz 3D screen. Both models offer an extensive array of configuration options, a backlit keyboard with seven programmable colors, built-in subwoofer, support for dual GPUs, 32 GB of DDR3 RAM and processors up to the Intel Core i7-3940XM Extreme.

Eurocom president Mark Bialic boasts, "The Eurocom Scorpius redefines the gold standard for mobile CAD and 3D design. For heavy duty rendering where the utmost accuracy is required, ECC memory is supported by the Nvidia Quadro K5000M graphics module. The supported Nvidia Quadro cards offer OpenGL quad buffered stereo support, for a smooth experience working with complex 3D models."

The Eurocom Scorpius P370EM and Scorpius 3D have a starting price of $2,201 and $2,293, respectively, and are backed with a one-year manufacturer warranty. Unsurprisingly, users who plan to equip the notebook with the aforementioned quad-core CPU, 32 GB of RAM and a pair of graphics cards, should expect to see a sticker price closer to the $4,000 or $5,000 mark.

    Awesome laptop. Pity about the crap display. Come on people, 1080p is last years news, especially on a laptop expected to top $5k

    The main problem with these supposed workstations is they still use the consumer resolution of 1920x1080. You need 1920x1200 for a workstation.
