With the announcement of the Eurocom Panther 4.0 notebook, the Maingear Titan 17 isn’t the only portable device to get a taste of the Intel Core i7 3960X Extreme Edition processor. This laptop will come powered by the Intel X79 Sandy Bridge-E Core Logic chipset along with support for SLI and CrossFireX.
Aimed as a workstation, mobile server and gaming rig, this portable laptop is built around dimensions of 16.76 x 11.44 x 2.31 inches and weighs approximately 12.1lbs. Fitted within the machine are options of the latest Intel Core i7 desktop CPUs and the next generation Intel Xeon processors. Furthermore, potential users can also choose between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580M and Quadro 5010M GPUs or the AMD Radeon HD 6990M graphics chip, in single or dual SLI or CrossFireX mode, respectively.
“It’s a workstation-caliber PC complete with Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) in a notebook form factor,” commented Mark Bialic, President of Eurocom. “It may be large, but this is one extremely fast notebook that replaces desktop based workstation with over 1 hour of built-in UPS battery.”
To complement the aforementioned high-end components, this manufacturer has employed a full-sized backlit keyboard for working in low light conditions and a 17.3-inch full HD display with resolutions of 1920 x 1080 pixels. There’s also support for up to 32GB of DDR3 RAM through its four 8GB SODIMM 204-pin modules. Additional features include a 2MP FHD webcam, Bluetooth connectivity, Wi-Fi and a built-in 10/100/1000Mb Base-TX Ethernet LAN port.
The Eurocom Panther 4.0 release date and price details are currently not disclosed by the company.
