Eurocom Ships World's First Six-Core Notebook

When it comes to cutting edge notebooks, Eurocom is always at the ready with something new. Whenever a new mobile CPU, chipset or GPU becomes available, you can almost count on this company delivering the first notebook based around those new specifications. Today, the company is introducing another world's first, and while it doesn't ship in a machine that's anywhere near ultra-mobile, it's still impressive to think that you can now carry Intel's Core i7-980X Extreme Edition in a machine that fits in a (large) carry-on bag.

The planet's first six-core notebook has arrived, with options for the 980X or the Xeon W5680 available. Users can also equip the machine with up to 2.6TB of storage (room for four hard drives!) and up to 24GB of DDR3-1333 memory. It's being introduced at the NAB Expo in front of those who need serious number crunching abilities on the go, and this one certainly has the power to sail through CAD modeling, CAM, Adobe's Creative Suite and pretty much anything else you could imagine.


It's encased in the same D900F Panther shell, which is a large machine with enough room to hold these high-powered processors and not melt-down completely.The machine is finally shipping now for prices that are far higher than most are willing to pay.



Eurocom launches the world's first 6-cores based notebook with Intel i7-980X Extreme Edition and Xeon W5680, up to 2.6TB of storage with four physical hard drives and up to 24GB of DDR3-1333 Triple-Channel Memory! The official launch is scheduled today in Las Vegas during NAB Expo.
