Eurocom D700T Enigma - Mobile Workstation with a choice of upgradeable graphics

Contact:




Eurocom Corporation, a leader in the Desktop Replacement notebook technology since 1989 has launched a new high-performance Mobile Workstation featuring a choice of upgradeable video cards based on 16x PCI Express architecture with 256MB of DDR video memory. The new super powerful EUROCOM D700T Enigma notebook powered by Intel® Pentium® 4 processor up to 3.8 GHz featuring 15-inch display, an optional second hard drive and second optical drive, is designed for graphic dependent professional users such as CAD designers, 2D and 3D designers, engineers, architects, scientists, researchers, photographers, animators, video and audio producers, game developers and players.

Upgradeable Video
Today's graphic dependant computer users, artists, CAD designers, photographers, know all too well that the difference between a good video card and an inferior one can mean the difference between getting the project done correctly and on time or loosing the contract. Not only are type of card, video RAM and the capabilities of the card to be considered, but with notebook video cards they may not ever have their own video RAM. Shared video RAM is not sufficient for high-end graphics computing. Many models on the market are designed to save space and power consumption to streamline the main board design. When it comes to high-end graphic requirements, the more system RAM, the better the final result. When the video output can take up 128Mb of memory, isn�t it better to let the video card deal with the graphics? Onboard video also streamlines the processing of the video; all graphics work stays on the board, not clogging up the system RAM, CPU and Bus bandwidth.

When it comes to a notebook with its own video RAM, traditional notebooks limit users to the video memory that the notebook was sold with. The Eurocom D700T Enigma introduced an answer to this problem. No longer are notebook video cards built onto the main board. A video card slot makes the Desktop Replacement Notebook one step closer to the capabilities of the behemoth computer that is sitting all over your desk. The D700T model takes the removable video card to the next level; it�s upgradeable, and not proprietary. It means that when Eurocom brings out the next generation of video cards, when 256Mb video becomes 1 GB, the notebook can be upgraded.

The newly released D700T Enigma allows for the choice of video cards at purchase. A user can choose from one of 3 video cards tailored for his computing needs. The originally released upgradeable video card Nvidia�s GeForce 6800 Go, boasts World�s First Fully Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Mobile GPU with Support for Shader Model 3.0 and Full Support for High-Definition DVD and Video Playback. To give the options some balance, Eurocom breaks out the ATI Mobile Radeon X800. This card targets the gaming enthusiast by delivering increased visual performance with 12 pixel pipeline, DirectX 9 performance, 6ix vertex engines, 3DcTM technology for increased performance and improved image detail, GDDR3 memory for lightning fast memory speeds, VIDEOSHADERTM HD and 256-bit memory interface for support of 256MB mobile designs. Eurocom takes this good idea another step; to ensure that you get the card best suited for your needs they have just introduced support for NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1400 with OpenGL. OpenGL provides a complete feature set for 2D and 3D graphics operations in a pipelined hardware with accelerated architecture for triangle and polygon rendering. In a broader sense, OpenGL is a powerful and generic toolset for hardware assisted computer graphics.

EUROCOM D700T Enigma Specifications


Detailed Specifications Configure

The new D700T model is a super powerful, high performance Mobile Workstation based on Intel® Pentium® 4 processor up to 3.8 GHz featuring 15-inch display, an optional second hard drive and second optical drive, and a choice of 16x PCI Express 256MB DDR upgradeable video card:
- ATI Mobility Radeon x800
- NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Go
- NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1400 with OpenGL
16x PCI Express supplying up to 150W of power to the graphics card provides for extremely high bandwidth at low cost. PCI Express can offer up to 70 times the bandwidth of today's PCI architecture and is scaleable for the future.

Key Features and Specifications:

  • 15-inch SXGA (1400x1050) or UXGA (1600x1200) Active Matric display
  • LGA 775 socket based very robust Intel® Pentium® 4 processor upgradeable to 3.8 GHz with 1 MB cache (90 nm), FSB800
  • 16x PCI-Express; Upgradeable VGA Module: 256MB DDR1 nVidia GeForce 6800 Go, or ATI Mobility Radeon x800, or 256MB DDR3 NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1400 with OpenGL.
  • up to 2 GB of DDR400 memory; Dual-Channel support
  • up to 240GB hard drive space with two physical HDDs SATA or ATA support (2nd HDD is optional). SATA is a new interface development that runs in a serial mode instead of the parallel mode of the older IDE standards, this allows for greater bandwidth (1.5 GB/s).
  • choice of any two physical optical drives including slot-based 8x MULTI DVD (DVD-RAM/-RW/+-RW) to allow CD or DVD duplication (2nd optical drive optional)
  • a hot swap bay allowing for: a secondary optical drive, a second hard drive, secondary battery, 7-in-1 card reader or internal 1.44 MB Floppy Drive, all hot swappable.
  • 1 FireWire 4-pin (IEEE1394a) port
  • Wired: 1 gigabit LAN and 56K V90/V92 WinModem on-board
  • Wireless: 802.11a/b/g or 802.11b/g wireless LAN and MDC Bluetooth
  • optional internal TV Tuner with Remote
  • optional 1.3 M-pixel web camera
  • High performance Sound-Blaster Pro compatible audio system with virtual 6-channel audio output; S/PDIF Digital output (5.1 CH), 4 internal speakers and optional sub-woofer offer home theater-like experience
  • integrated SRS 3D sound technology; SRS (Sound Retrieval System) replaces stereo as the method of accurately reproducing sound, and, is rapidly becoming the standard for 3-D audio technology. It creates a three-dimensional sound image from any audio source with only two conventional stereo speakers. Whether the signal is mono, stereo, or surround sound encoded, SRS® expands the audio material and immerses the listener in an exciting three-dimensional sound field.
  • 2nd 1.8-inch TFT display on the front cover for users' own images (in bmp or animated gif)
  • 1x S-Video In port with TV Tuner option, 4x USB v.2.0 ports, 1x S-Video Out for TV/HDTV, 1x External Monitor DVI-I port with max resolution 1600x1200 dpi.

    Smaller than EUROCOM D900T Phantom model, the D700T Enigma mobile workstation is an ideal solution for professional users, 2D and 3D designers, video and audio producers, scientists, engineers, researchers, game developers and players. Mobile Workstation category of notebooks is the next step in the evolution of the desktop replacement by combining workstation like features, power and flexibility with desktop replacement technology.
