Eurocom Claims 'Most Powerful 15" Notebook'

Eurocom announced that it will soon unleash what it claims is the world's most powerful 15-inch notebook on the planet, the Eurocom Racer.

While that's a bold statement to make, the Racer's key specs indicate that consumers can choose up to Nvidia's GeForce GTX 485M, AMD's Radeon Mobility HD6970M or Nvidia's Quadro FX 3800M from the GPU lineup alone. The notebook's other specs are just as meaty to say the least.

"The Eurocom Racer is the perfect little package that is capable of much more than its size suggests. With powerful Intel Core i7 Extreme Mobile processors, MXM 3.0 graphics technology supporting AMD Radeon Mobility technology, Nvidia GeForce and Quadro this platform is very capable of matching up against the best in the gaming and professional industries," said Mark Bialic, President and CTO of Eurocom Corporation.

In addition to the high-end GPUs, the Racer's other key specs include support for Intel's Sandy Bridge line of Intel i5 and i7 Core processors, with offerings up to the Intel Core i7 2920XM Extreme Edition with 8 GB of L3 cache. There are also four memory modules supporting both DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 memory which can be configured with up to 32 GB of RAM. The Racer also holds up to two physical drives (SSD, hybrid or mechanical) totaling a possible 1.75 TB of storage.

Other key features include a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) backlit LED display (matte or glossy), a 9-in-1 card reader, two USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port, HDMI output, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth, VGA, DVI-DI, an option to add a 3.75G Mini Card and more. On the graphics front, the notebook will offer six options from Nvidia and the one GPU from AMD. The processor choices are all Intel spanning from the Core i5-2540M to the Core i7 2920XM.

The Eurocom Racer is expected to launch on February 1. Presently the base price is unknown, however consumers should expect to see some seriously high figures when throwing in the high-end hardware.

    I think their claims are slightly false, iv'e seen one or two notebooks with GTX480M SLI and a desktop i7 980X.

    Sure it's fast, but it isn't the fastest.

    The only real selling point of this laptop would be the case design. There are at least 2 other companies with the same specs in their laptops...bigger screens, too.
