Eurocom X9E2 Sky is the new Canadian company car, aimed mainly at gamers. As usual can be configured according to your budget, but the most demanding users will have GPU Nvidia GeForce 1080 GTX and GeForce 1070 GTX, Intel Core i7 processors (Skylake-S), up to 64GB of DRAM memory, 6TB of space disk and from 120 Hz display. For a similar equipment was chosen one of the most impressive frames and robust, with a total weight of 5.5 kg and a thickness of 47.2 mm. Will certainly not be a walking notebook, but who needs a similar laptop knows he will have to give up the portability.
In detail: Eurocom Sky X9E2 is based on an Intel Z170 chipset and supports socketed Skylake-S processors (Intel Core i7-6700K, i5-6600K and i7-6700) among others also overclockable. The machine can accommodate up to four SO-DIMM memory banks for a total of 64GB DDR4 with two bays for SSD / HDD 2.5-inch (9.5 mm) for a total of 4TB of space for storage, to which are add up to two SSD slot M.2-2280 MVME for other additional 2TB. The handset also incorporates a card slot 6-in-1, as well as two Thunderbolt ports 3.0 (which automatically suggest support for two Type-C USB ports to 10 Gbps), HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2 and five USB 3.0 connectors, two controllers Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet Networking, a form 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth.
The highlight is the graphic: Eurocom Sky X9E2 can be equipped with one or two graphics cards Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070/1080 MxM in size, with a TDP “on paper” of 120-190 watts and performance of “desktop-class”. The presence of a rather powerful GPU in a laptop with a modern frame should not be a problem, but Eurocom X9E2 Sky is one of the first machines to integrate up to two graphics chips Pascal with a total TDP potential <380 watts. To cool the GPU and GPU, the notebook uses a sophisticated cooling system with multiple heat pipes and three huge fans. The last component is the screen, an IPS Full HD panel (1920 x 1080 pixels) 17.3-inch refresh rate of 120Hz or alternatively an IPS 4K UHD display. For both, there will be support for the G-Sync technology Nvidia.
