Eurocom's P5 Pro And P7 Pro Now Support 'Broadwell' CPUs

This week during Computex 2015, Eurocom introduced two new laptops built with the socket LGA1150 and the Intel Z97 chipset. Supporting fourth and fifth generation Intel processors, the Eurocom P7 Pro sports a 17.3 inch screen, whereas the Eurocom P5 Pro offers a 15.6 inch screen. Both are ideal for the professional and the gamer, as the processor selection spans from the Intel Core i5 to the Intel Xeon CPU.

For starters, the Eurocom P7 Pro supports Intel processors up to the Xeon E3-1281 v3 chip. On the GPU front, Eurocom provides options for both the gamer and professional with Nvidia-based GeForce GTX graphics (980M, 970M, 965M) or Quadro-based graphics (K5100M, K3100M and K1100M). These power the laptop's 17.3 inch screen, which has a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Cooling is handled by high-quality VGA and CPU heatsinks.

For storage, the laptop is built to handle four physical drives: two M.2 slots for SSDs and two SATA 3 slots for 9.5 mm hard drives or SSDs. Supported storage technologies include RAID 0/1/5/10, Rapid Start Technology and Intel Smart Response Technology. Even more, the laptop supports up to 32 GB of DDR3L RAM thanks to four 204-pin SODIMM sockets.

Here are the base specs:

Next we have the Eurocom P5 Pro, which enables overclocking if customers have the unlocked Intel Core i7-4790K processor installed. The big selling point with this laptop is in its screen, which measures 15.6 inches and can be configured with 3840 x 2160, 2880 x 1620, or 1920 x 1080 resolutions. Backing this screen are the same Nvidia GPUs offered for the Eurocom P7 Pro.

For customers who are always on the go, the Eurocom P5 Pro can be configured with 3G and 4G wireless modules via an M.2 slot. Like the P7 Pro, this laptop provides four slots for SSDs and HDDs, and four 204-pin SODIMM sockets for up to 32 GB of DDR3L RAM. Both also include a built-in fingerprint reader for added security and a backlit keyboard.

Keep in mind that these laptops don't include an operating system, so customers will have to factor in the OS during the configuration or install an operating system after receiving the device.
