Eurocom Corporation (www.eurocom.com), a developer of long lifespan, high performance, fully upgradable laptops, Mobile Servers and Mobile Workstations is proud to announce the launch of the new EUROCOM Sky X7E2 Mobile Supercomputer laptop. This all-new platform packs support for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Pascal graphics, powerful Skylake Intel Core i7-6700K Desktop Processor, up to 64GB of DDR4 3000MHz memory and up to 6TB of RAID 0/1 storage with four drives including two NVMe based M.2 SSDs.

The Sky X7E2 is designed as a high performance, fully user upgradeable laptop computer platform with long lifespan and can be customized for multiple uses such as a Super-Gaming laptop or as an on-the-Go VR system.

EUROCOM Sky X7E2 is a full size notebook that supports four 260-pin DDR4 SODIMM up to 64GB, up to four internal drives including two M.2 SSD’s all of which support RAID 0/1, or GTX 1080 or1070 running up to 190W per card. It offers easy access to internal components to allow future upgradeability by the user. The Intel Z170 Express platform enables the Sky X7E2 to provide users with the tools needed to redefine the limits of mobile performance with such features as dual SATA 6Gbp/s connections, five USB 3.0 ports, SSD caching technologies and full XTU overclocking support with unlocked CPUs and overclockable Pascal graphics.

The Sky X7E2 is equipped with a full range of I/O ports, including but not limited to two Thunderbolt 3 / USB 3.1 type C (HDMI 2.0/DP 1.2/Thunderbolt 3), three USB 3.0 and an RJ-45 Gigabit LAN just to name few.

Using durable ABS plastics and top quality manufacturing technology, the X7E2 weighs just 3.9 kg (8.58 lbs) and is less than 40 mm (1.6 inches) thick when closed, an astonishing feat of engineering considering the level of power under the hood. Its strong chassis can take unintentional abuse while on the go while being used for heavy duty computing by engineers, professionals or hardcore gamers.

Memory
The Sky X7E2 has four 260pin SODIMM 1.2V memory slots and supports up to 64GB DDR4 3000MHz, creating a flexible tool for virtualization and high performance computing.

Graphics
The EUROCOM Sky X7E2 is equipped with one MXM 3 slot rated at up to 190 W that is able to support NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 (8 GB GDDR5X) or 1070 (8 GB GDDR5X) Pascal Graphics. The Sky X7E2 was designed from the beginning as a no-compromise gaming platform, so there are no bottlenecks from hybrid graphics switching solutions such as Optimus or Enduro, just raw performance.

CPU
When equipped with the quad core Intel Core i7-6700K Unlocked processor running at up to 4.2 GHz with 8MB of SmartCache, the Sky X7E2 delivers class-leading multi-tasking and multi-threaded performance. Mixing in full Intel XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility) support for system-wide overclocking and up to 330W of AC power lets the Sky X7E2 easily reach beyond what was previously possible with mobile platforms.

Overclocking center
The EUROCOM Sky X7E2 is equipped with a user friendly Overclocking Center to get the most out of your high performance laptop by modifying the Core and Memory increment for the GPU and CPU ratio override, cache Ratio and power limits.

Intel XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility) support is enabled on the Sky X7E2 platform, allowing enthusiasts to push the limits of their hardware. XTU allows users to adjust CPU and system clocks, as well as monitor the system for stability. Unlocked CPUs such as the i7-6700k can be overclocked through multiplier adjustment.
