As the first EVGA SC17 equipped with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M and 8GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory card, so the new EVGA SC17 1070 is equipped with a Sharp display 17.3-inch 4K Ultra HD and i7-6820HK overclockable Intel Core processor, supported by a Samsung SSD M.2 NVMe PCIe 256GB, plus a 1TB 7200rpm SATA HDD, and 32GB (2 x 16GB) G.SKILL DDR4 2666MHz memory. The notebook has a backlit keyboard, a sound system with subwoofer, a USB 3.1 Type-C and two USB 3.0. Even the size of the notebook remained unchanged, with an aluminum unibody chassis that measures 408 x 295.5 x 27.18 mm in 4.5 kg.
EVGA SC17 1070, refresh with Nvidia GeForce 1070 GTX
In short, EVGA SC17 in 1070 can not be considered a second generation of gaming notebook but a refresh. And also quite substantial. The real novelty is in fact the adoption of a Nvidia GeForce 1070 GTX (Pascal) card, which has a lower frequency for the desktop version but with a number of CUDA cores that should ensure similar performance. If by chance you have missed, you should know that the GeForce 1070 GTX is based on a GP104 GPU with 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMU and 64 ROP. It supports up to 8GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 8.0GHz and 256-bit and can reach a frequency of 1645 MHz Boost.
The power supply of this gaming notebook can provide up to 240W of power when needed, without compromising battery life. EVGA has also provided a complete BIOS GUI to set the advanced configuration dialog of the CPU (such as voltages, clock …), a COE button (Express EVGA OC) to overclock the CPU in one click with arrow keys (up and down ) for Superclock and downclock mode, and EVGA PrecisionX software (or EVGA PrecisionX Mobile smartphone) to customize Windows. Obviously for such equipment, EVGA has designed an adequate cooling system, with large fans in action.
EVGA SC17 1070 is already on sale in the US market at the price of $ 2799 starting.
