Eurocom, a leader in professional desktop replacement notebooks in Canada, has announced that the D900F Panther Workstation will offer the 6-core Intel Core i7-980X Gulftown processor as a customizable option.
Read on for more information.
Do you fancy a huge, 17” mobile workstation with a powerful, top-of-the-line desktop-grade processor stuffed into it? If your answer is yes, then you might want to consider flying down to Canada and picking up one of these notebooks from Eurocom.
The D900F Panther Workstation, which is Eurocom’s mobile workstation laptop, is now offering Intel’s 6-core i7-980X processor, codenamed Gulftown, as one of the available processors available for customization on purchase, making it one of the first computing systems to feature the 980X in a laptop.
For those requiring a more professional-grade processor, Eurocom is also offering the laptop with Intel’s new Xeon W56xx processors, which, coincidentally, also happen to boast 6 processing cores. And as far as customization goes, the D900F Panther Workstation supports up to 24GB of memory (DDR3), 4 hard disks, a choice between Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 285M or Quadro 2800/3800 video card, along with RAID, if required.
Of course, it being a desktop replacement notebook (and a mighty fine one at that), don’t expect the D900F to weigh anything less than 5kg: this is a notebook which is meant to be set atop a desk and left there for as long as needed, and not for carrying around to meetings or watching videos while on the move.
