We would have expected to see at the fair, but the notebook EVGA was not present. The California-based company has brought only a “small representation” of PC components for hardcore gamers and overclockers, its core business, but no trace of EVGA SC17. The gamestation however, was announced at CES 2016 and it was during this time that have been spread its key specifications. For a full specification and a live contact, we will have to wait another few months.
EVGA tells us that, to build its first gaming notebook, it took a lot of effort especially in design and interior design. The result is a large 17-inch notebook (the one you see in the picture above) with a lid that can be opened / closed with one finger and a massive cooling system that silently keeps in check the internal temperatures. This last element was central in developing EVGA SC17, because the notebook is among the few to integrate an Intel Core i7 and unlocked a high-end Nvidia GPU with support for overclocking.
Despite the equipment hardware, then, EVGA SC17 is among the most “thin and light” of the category with 26.67 mm thickness and 3.85 kg of weight. The price and availability are yet to be defined, but for now we can get an idea of its potential with the technical information made public.
The gaming notebook is equipped with an Intel Core i7-6820HK, flanked by G.SKILL 16GB DDR4 memory at 2666MHz and two 128GB SSD (RAID 0 M.2) with a 2TB hard drive. The 17.3-inch display has a resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels) and support G-Sync, run by a Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M. On board is also a 1080p camera, USB 3.1 Type-C, HDMI and two DisplayPort.
