Eurocom Releases Racer: World's Fastest 15" Notebook

The fastest notebook in the world? We seem to see these surface every few month or so, usually after a major chip maker has just introduced a new processor or after AMD/NVIDIA has revealed a brand new mobile GPU. It's easily to claim the "world's fastest" when you're the first to introduce the latest hardware, but Eurocom seems to be faster than just about everyone else.

The company has just introduced their newest laptop, the Racer, which they're calling the planet's fastest 15" notebook. The Racer joins numerous other Eurocom machines, with this one boasting the latest from AMD, Intel and NVIDIA. It will also support Intel's 7th-gen chipset, Huron River HM65, and will support up to a 100-watt GPU. That means that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 485M can be ordered, or AMD's Radeon Mobility HD 6970M. For the workstation buyers, there's an option for the Quadro FX 3800M.

Moreover, the Racer can be outfitted with 32GB of RAM, and it will support both DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 memory modules. It'll be powered by a 180-watt AC adapter, and it will most definitely not be the world's thinnest 15" laptop all the while. Glossy or matte display options (Full HD) are available, and it will also ship with a Gigabit Ethernet port, optional 802.11n/Bluetooth/3G, up to 2 hard drives, a 9-in-1 card reader, eSATA, Firewire, two USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports and Intel's latest Core i5 and i7 CPUs. No pricing is mentioned, but the first shipments should start early next month.

Eurocom (www.eurocom.com) announces an addition to its already extensive line of fully configurable, performance based Mobile Notebooks with the EUROCOM Racer. This new model will feature next generation technology from ATI, Intel and NVIDIA and will support Intel's new seventh generation chipset platform, the Huron River HM 65. The EUROCOM Racer is expected to ship February 1, 2011

The EUROCOM Racer will support up to a 100W GPU which will allow it to run up to an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 485M, AMD Radeon Mobility HD6970M or NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M graphics solution.

A major innovation in the EUROCOM Racer model is support for four memory modules which can be configured with up to 32GB of RAM. The EUROCOM Racer supports both DDR3-1333 and DDR3-1600 memory.

The EUROCOM Racer is powered by a 180W AC Adapter which allows support for powerful GPU's, up to 32 GB of RAM and Intel Sandy Bridge processors.

The EUROCOM Racer can be equipped with a Matte or Glossy Full HD 16:9 display panel.

The EUROCOM Cheetah 3.0 is a high end professional and gaming notebook. Being fully configurable and customizable allows customers to build their system to their exact specifications.

"The EUROCOM Racer is the perfect little package that is capable of much more than its size suggests. With powerful Intel Core i7 Extreme Mobile processors, MXM 3.0 graphics technology supporting AMD Radeon Mobility technology, NVIDIA Geforce and Quadro this platform is very capable of matching up against the best in the gaming and professional industries" said Mark Bialic, President and CTO of Eurocom Corporation.
