Computer users, if you’re looking for a mobile workstation, a mobile server and a gaming notebook all rolled into one, you might be interested in taking a look at what Eurocom has recently unveiled. Dubbed the Panther 4.0, this “super” notebook will apparently let you do all of the above, and like all other notebooks in this class, it will not come cheap.
The Panther 4.0 will be powered by Intel’s Sandy Bridge-E platform and can be fully upgraded. This means that users can expect to choose from a six-core, 12 thread, 130W desktop Intel Core i7-3960X Processor Extreme, and even upgrade their RAM all the way up until 32GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, with up to 4TB of storage with RAID 0/1/5/10.
As far as its graphics are concerned, the Panther 4.0 features modular VGA technology and users will be able to choose from three graphic card options. This includes the NVIDIA GeForce 580M with 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM, the NVIDIA Quadro 5010M with 4GB of VRAM or the AMD Radeon HD 6990M with 2GB of VRAM. The Panther 4.0 will also support the MXM 3.0b interface, and will support two 100W graphics cards in either NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFire X mode.
It will come with a 17.3” 1920×1080 Full HD display that users can choose between matte, glossy or 3D, a backlit keyboard, a 2MP webcam, USB 3.0 ports, built-in Ethernet LAN port, THX TruStudio Pro audio sound system, HDMI output, Trusted Platform Module 1.2, fingerprint reader and a Kensington lock port. It is expected to be made available in March and will start at $2,649. [Press release]RELATED
