Eurocom has benchmarked the thin and light, 15.6” Electra 2 Notebook computer with TPM 1.2 hardware data encryption, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M graphics and 4th generation Intel Core i7 and i7 Extreme processors.

Eurocom has benchmarked the Electra 2 to show the performance and capability of the system. It was once thought that customers needed to make the decision between a large, highly capable system or a small and mobile system with little capability. The Electra 2 proves that is not the case anymore as performance, capability and mobility are perfectly combined into a system that provides the best of both worlds.

The supported NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M graphics card has 640 CUDA cores running at 936 MHz+boost with 2 GB GDDR3 memory running at 1000 MHz with Optimus Technology for graphics performance when you want it and long battery life when you don’t. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M GPU provides a potent combination of immersive features and performance that you deserve for all your games, applications, and entertainment; while also providing intelligent power features to extend battery life.

The Electra 2 has support for three storage drives, with one mSATA, one 9.5mm standard drive bay and the third taking the place of the optical drive. A total of 4 TB of storage is currently offered.

The increased security brought on by the integrated Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 can save organizations and individuals in IT management and security costs. The integrate TPM 1.2 from Infineon Technologies ensures that digital certificates, passwords and keys are made more secure from software attacks and physical theft. TPM provides the ability for a computing system to run applications more secure and allows secured remote access to perform electronic transactions and communication more safely.

Powered by a full line of 4th Generation Intel Core i7 processors utilizing the Intel HM87 Express Chipset including the Intel Core i7-4940MX Processor Extreme with 4 cores and 8 threads running at 3.1 GHz (up to 4 GHz max turbo frequency) with 8 MB L3 cache. Up to 16 GB memory is supported via two slots.
