Enter the Scorpius

Eurocom has launched its new Scorpius gaming notebook and, as we’ve come to expect from Eurocom gear, it packs a seriously mean punch.

Eurocom was obviously bent on making the Scorpius a formidable beast, so notebook is based on Intel’s HM77 chipset and powered by a Core i7 3920XM Extreme Edition CPU. The CPU runs at 3.8GHz and has 8MB of L3 cash.

It has a 17.3-inch full HD with a choice of glossy or matte finish. The company offers a choice between dual GeForce GTX 680M, with a 720MHz GPU, 1688 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5, or dual Radeon HD7970M cards, with 850MHz GPU, 1560 stream processors and 4GB of GDDR5. Additionally, the Scorpius supports NVIDIA Quadro K5000M, K4000M and K3000M graphics as well as 675M cards, so you’re pretty much set for most scenarios.

The Scorpius offers up to 32GB of DDR3 1600 SODIMM via four sockets. It comes with support for up to four storage drives – two SATA3 devices (SSD, HDD or Hybrid HDD), optical drive plus an mSATA drive. It also has a 9-in-1 card reader.

As for connectivity, it has a single USB 2.0 port, four USB 3.0 ports, eSATA/USB 2.0 combo, SPDIF out, 802.11b/g/nWLAN, Bluetooth 3.0, RJ45, headphone and line in jacks. Creative’s Sound Blaster X-Fi MB2 takes care of the sound and the Scorpius has two 2W speakers by Onkyo plus a subwoofer. It has a full sized, backlit keyboard.

It has an 8-cell high capacity battery (89.21WH), but we wouldn’t expect it to last any longer than an average run to the outlet. It weighs in at 3.5kg and measures 419mm x 286mm x 24-49.7mm so it’s not that portable either but those who can afford it probably won’t care. Oh yes, the basic model stands at $2017, so the good old’ rule applies – no pay, no play.
