As rumored earlier, EVGA has unveiled its very first gaming notebook at CES 2016 show in Las Vegas, the EVGA SC17 Gaming notebook.

As you could have guessed from the name, EVGA's SC17 Gaming notebook is built around a 17.3-inch 4K/UHD IPS panel with a G-Sync screen as an option. The hardware, which is squeezed in an aluminum unibody design just 1.05-inch (2.65cm) thick, includes the unlocked Intel Core i7-6820HK CPU clocked at up to 3.8GHz as well as a 1200MHz clocked Nvidia GTX 980M graphics card with overclocking support.

The EVGA SC17 Gaming notebook can be equipped with 16GB of DDR4-2666 memory from G.Skill, up to 256GB of M.2 SSD storage and a 2TB standard HDD.

According to provided details, EVGA has equipped the notebook with an overclocking GUI BIOS similar to what we saw on their motherboards and which should help with GPU, CPU and memory overclocking. It also has a Clear CMOS button, in case something goes wrong. The rest of the known specifications include a USB 3.1 Type-C port and a couple of USB 3.0 ports, full HD front camera and EVGA even promises up to 4 hours of battery life.

According to EVGA, the new SC17 gaming notebook should be available in February with a price set at over $2,000 for the fully-packed high-end model.
