Scorpius and Scorpius 3D Notebooks Released by Eurocom
The latter is more than just a version of the former with a 3D screen
The company name “Eurocom” doesn't crop up on the laptop market as often as, say, ASUS, Samsung, Acer, Dell and HP, but that's not because its products have issues, but because Eurocom only makes high-performance Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers.The latest two products to leave its labs are called Scorpius and Scorpius 3D, and they measure 17.3 inches in diagonal.
Made for professional users and digital content creators, they have high-end LCD LED-backlit screens with 120 Hz refresh rate.
Inside, Ivy Bridge Intel CPUs (third-generation Core Processors up to Intel Core i7-3940XM Processor Extreme Edition) are paired with up to 32 GB of DDR3 RAM (random access memory), thanks to the existence of four SODIMM sockets (DDR3-1600).
There is room for four storage devices too: 2 HDDs (SATA 6 Gbps, RAID 0/1/5/10 supported), an optical drive, and an mSATA drive. A 9-in-1 card reader is part of the spec sheet too.
On top of all that, the Scorpius 3D has an NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 complete bundle (3D vision 2 glasses, built in emitter).
Dual-graphics card operation is possible, with either NVIDIA GeForce or NVIDIA Quadro discrete adapters selected.
"The EUROCOM Scorpius and Scorpius 3D provide high performance computing capabilities in a hand carry, mobile form factor for deployment of professional grade computing on the go," said Mark Bialic, Eurocom president.
"The Eurocom Scorpius redefines the gold standard for mobile CAD and 3D design. For heavy duty rendering where the utmost accuracy is required, ECC memory is supported by the NVIDIA Quadro K5000M graphics module. The supported NVIDIA Quadro cards offer OpenGL quad buffered stereo support, for a smooth experience working with complex 3D models."
Corporate customers will have to contact Eurocom and see how they can reach a balance between budget and performance. Depending on the size of the order, they may or may not get bulk discounts.
