Eurocom launches Sky X9E3 VR Ready Supercomputer laptop

Eurocom has offered plenty of machines with lots of powerful hardware inside laptop-shaped packages before. Now, the company's Sky X9E3 laptop really stretches the definition of what can be classified as a mobile device, packing a Intel Kaby Lake Core i7-7700K desktop processor, a pair of Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards in SLI, and support for up to five internal storage devices.
 
Buyers can choose from three Intel seventh-generation Core i5 or Core i7 desktop processors. The CPU gets data from up to 64 GB of memory ensconced in four DDR4 SODIMM slots. Three NVMe M.2 drives and two 2.5" SATA drives can come along for the short ride from wall outlet to wall outlet. The big bruiser has a pair of Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet jacks along with three antennas for Wi-Fi connectivity.
 
Eurocom lets buyers choose between Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, available singly or in SLI pairs. The graphics card (or cards) splatters pretty pictures on one of four different 17.3" displays, ranging from a rather pedestrian 1920x1080 unit with a 60 Hz refresh rate all the way to a 4K display with G-Sync. Interestingly, there's a middle-ground option at 2560x1440 with 120Hz refresh. If the onboard display doesn't pack enough pixels, the Sky X9E3 can connect to up to four external monitors via a pair of DisplayPort connectors, one HDMI jack, and one HDMI or USB 3.1 port.
 
There are three methods for powering the machine: a single 330W power brick, a pair of 330W units with an additional converter box to tie them together, and a massive 780W charger that weighs 3 lbs (1.3 kg) all by itself. The laptop comes with an eight-cell 89 Wh battery, though given the desktop-class hardware and the specifications of the power bricks, the battery life probably isn't competing with Microsoft's Surface Book Pro.
 
The Sky X9E3 is available now with prices starting around $2300 with a Core i5 processor, GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, 16 GB of DDR4 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Buyers might also need to spring for a new laptop bag to hold the machine's bulky dimensions of 17.1" x 12.3" x 1.9" (or 43 cm x 31 cm x 4.7 cm) and and 12.1 lb (5.5 kg) weight. Eurocom didn't say if that figure includes the aforementioned giant power brick.
