Cyberpower Launches FANGbook Evo HX6 Series

On Tuesday CyberPower launched a new line of FANGbook Evo gaming laptops, the HX6 series, packing "big performance" in a small footprint of only 15.09 x 9.83 x 1.46 inches. There are three models in all, starting at $1,069 and featuring Intel "Haswell" processors and Nvidia's Geforce GTX 765M (2 GB) GPU across all three.

"The sleek and stylish FANGbook Evo HX6 series is capable of handling any task it is given with the GeForce GTX 765M graphics, which features Nvidia PhysX technology and Nvidia CUDA," the company said. "Users will enjoy fluid and immersive game play with stunning graphics and visuals whether you’re role playing in a MMORPG gaming environment; lighting up enemies in first person shooters; or commanding your army with precise micro management in real time strategies."

According to the specs, this new series includes the HX6-100 with a starting price of $1,069, the HX6-200 for a starting price of $1,125, and the HX6-300 with a starting price of $1,379. All three have a 15.6 inch Full HD LED-lit screen, the Nvidia GPU, Wireless N and Gigabit Ethernet networking, a built-in HD webcam, an 8x DVD rewritable optical drive, a 2-in-1 card reader, and HDMI 1.4 output. All three also weigh around 7.9 pounds with the battery installed.

However, that's where the similarities end. The HX6-100 and HX6-200 have an Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor with a max clock (turbo) speed of 3.4 GHz, whereas the HX6-300 has an Intel Core i7-4800MQ chip with a max clock speed of 3.7 GHz. On the RAM front, the HX6-100 has a default 8 GB of DDR3-1600 while the two other models have 16 GB DDR3-1600 out of the box.

As for storage, all three configurable laptops support up to two hard drives and RAID, yet their default configuration only provides one drive. The HX6-100 and HX6-300 models have a 1 TB 5400 RPM SATA 3 drive, and the middle-class HX6-200 has a 64 GB Sandisk SSD. All three models also come packed with the 64-bit version of Windows 8 Pro, along with Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, and two USB 2.0 ports.

"Other standard gaming features include HD Surround Sound for crystal clear audio fidelity," the company said. "The anti-ghosting gaming keyboard captures simultaneous keystrokes and allows you to tear it up in a game from day to night with a fully backlit keyboard with red LEDs so you never miss a key. If you're looking for a full-sized QWERTY keyboard and large screen, the FANGbook EVO HX6 is for you."
