Eurocom Corporation (www.eurocom.com), a developer of long lifespan, fully upgradable notebooks, Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers is launching a full line of Ivy Bridge based notebooks with support for professional graphics from NVIDIA Quadro 5010M, 4000M and 3000M. Eurocom offers a complete line of NVIDIA Quadro GPU powered Eurocom Mobile Workstations from 15.6” to 17.3” that are specifically designed for professional Engineers and Designers of all kinds.

Eurocom Mobile Workstations are built to offer unmatched performance, long lifespan and full upgradeability of the processor, memory, storage, operating system and VGA technology, and are designed with the most innovative technology and components available. In our line of Mobile Workstations, Eurocom offers customer choices between displays from 15.6” to 17.3” matte or glossy and graphics options from NVIDIA Quadro 5010M, 4000M to 3000M with up 4GB of DDR5 ECC (Error-correcting code memory) memory . Eurocom offers Intel Ivy Bridge processors from Intel i7-3920XM, i7-3820QM, i7- 3720QM to the I7-3610QM with up to 4 cores, 8 threads and 8 MB L3 cache. In terms of storage, Eurocom offers customers choices of SATA 600 Hard Drives, Solid State, Hybrid and mSATA drives; support for up to 3.08 TB of RAIDable storage offers customers the perfect mix between performance and redundancy. Large amounts of high quality, performance memory is a key aspect of a professional Mobile Workstation, Eurocom offers up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 RAM via four sockets.

With an entirely new 22nm microarchitecture, new Intel® Core™ processors pack a number of business-productivity-enhancing features onto the processor die to open up limitless potential. With new features that make working with media faster than ever, new 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors help multimedia enthusiasts create, enjoy and share videos—how they want and where they want on their Eurocom notebook. Intel 3rd Generation Mobile Core Processors offer increase power efficiency, performance and security.

“In certain processor testing suites, Eurocom technicians have noticed upwards of a 14% increase in performance from Sandy Bridge processors to Ivy Bridge processors in the same EUROCOM Racer 2.0 platform. We are very excited about the performance offered by the new Ivy Bridge 3rd Generation Intel Core processors in our Racer 2.0 and Neptune 2.0 platforms. It is abundantly clear that Intel’s new 22nm and Tri-gate technologies have helped raise the performance ceiling in Eurocom systems” said Mark Bialic, Eurocom President.

Eurocom integrates NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics into their professional class notebooks because they adhere to higher quality and reliability standards than consumer level graphics cards. NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are designed and built to provide leading performance, reliability, compatibility and stability with applications like Adobe Creative Suite 5.5, Autodesk 3DS Max, Autodesk Autocad 2011, Autodesk Inventor 2012, Avid Media Composer, Dassault Catia, Dassault Solidworks, Siemens X, ANSYS, MATLAB, Dassault Simulia, among many others.

Like NVIDIA, Eurocom believes NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics cards are the right choice for these types of applications because they provide the dependability that professionals require. NVIDIA and its ISV partners invest a great deal of engineering hours to provide optimized professional application solutions, resulting in a lower likelihood of a driver related software bug interrupting a professional’s work. Eurocom and NVIDIA recommend that if your livelihood depends on using professional applications, then Quadro professional graphics solutions are the best choice

Eurocom offers Quad buffered stereo support in quad buffered stereo applications with 3D stereoscopic glasses in all Eurocom Mobile Workstations, 3D displays and NVIDIA Quadro high end solutions. The 120Hz 3D signal is outputted to an external monitor via DVI-DL (DVI Dual Link) port.

Eurocom has been testing new Intel Ivy Bridge technology with NVIDIA Quadro 5010M, 4000M, 3000M graphics as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M graphics with an Intel Core i7-3720XM Ivy Bridge processor. This is done to show customers the added benefits of NVIDIA Quadro graphics technology for professional applications. The results are below: Here
